stainless vs. porcelain cooktop
I know there have been other posts on this topic in the past, but the answers seem totally inconclusive. We are considering getting a highly rated (per Consumer Reports) LG range. One of the main differences between the higher-priced and lower-priced models is the cooktop material. The higher-priced (model 3097) is stainless steel: http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/d7/d7d37ae3-2c36-4455-8dd0-ee87a91fc486.pdf.
The lower-priced one (3095) is porcelain: http://www.aimtofind.com/files/LRG3095ST-1.PDF. I'm drawn to some of the features of model 3097 (higher BTU power burner, split level rack), but I'm worried that the stainless cooktop could stain easily & be hard to clean.
Does anyone have experience with this or can you point me to websites on this topic?
