For what I've heard and read my votes would be

1. Honda HS621 (built like a little tank, commercial GX160 engine)
2. Toro CCR2000 (2 stroke Suzuki engine, known to have a phenomenal performance)

1 like my toro 721 better than my old toro 2450. The only thing that i liked better on the 2450 was that it easier to throw into the back of the truck it was so light. The 721 feels like it has more torq and much quieter .

A well maintained Toro Powerlite. Super simple to operate and work on, and parts are still available. It's got a "badass" reputation with OSHA and Consumers Report so beware. The little 98cc engine can run a lot of snow. Likely not a fan favorite in our group here, but they have saved a lot of backs for a lot of years. I still keep one and have 2 at my parents for their decks. Even your Aunt can use one.

I had a few 2000's and still had a 2000e ( gave it to my niece when she bought her first house ) when I picked up my first 3650e, the 3650 threw snow farther
the power curve paddles are easier to replace then any of those snowblowers with riveted paddles out there
maintenance : check scraper, belt and paddles, it's a two stroke no oil to change

Yeah, I used to be a huge fan of the Toro CCR2000 'til it started needing silly $$$$ parts. Now, in terms of contemporary hardware, I'm very fond of my Ariens Path Pro 21".
