The Bottom Line: If you're shopping for high end appliances definitly check this one out. You'll understand the old saying "now we're cooking with gas".
My husband and I just finished building our "dream home" in June and the kitchen was very important to me. I did EXTENSIVE research on appliances (including reading opinions here)and am very pleased with my Dacor Cooktop. This is my first gas cooktop and I can honestly say I would never go back to electric. I love the stainless steel look and ease of cleaning. The controls in the center are very handy. The range of BTU's on the burners is plenty for any home use. The simmer plate works great too. I also considered Viking but have 2 friends that have had constant problems with their Vikings and they can look so massive in home kitchens. The Dacor is sleeker and lets the granite countertops shine.
