36" gas cooktop: Jenn-Air (6 burner) or Thermador (5 burner)?

kris680April 27, 2014

I'm looking for feedback on Jenn-Air & Thermador's 36" gas cooktop. Do you have one? What do you like about it? Comments on burner configuration, grate height/design, consistency of temp, ability to clean hard corners vs rounded, knobs, etc. etc.

All feedback most welcome as I'm trying to decide between the two cooktops.

Thank you!

Hi! As far as brands go, I can't comment because I have a gas bertazzoni (love it). But I was conflicted as to a 5 or 6 burner model because I do a lot of cooking. Initially thought I should go for the 6 burner. More possibilites, right? Well, luckily before purchasing I did a "frequently used pan inventory" and realized 3 or more large pans in use would push against each other on the 6-burner range. So I went with the 5 burner configuration because there is more room between pans and no crowding. Hope this helps!
