It cost me $30 or maybe it was $40 for two pieces of hose for my stove and water heater, but peace of mind was well worth it.
It is very flexible, allowing me to move the stove a couple feet for easy cleaning, and very strong so I don't have to worry about a leak.
I think it had wire mesh in the rubber as reinforcement and was rated at a couple thousand psi.
