gas cooktop - GE Monogram?
We are thinking of replacing 36" electrical cooktop with gas one. It seems GE monogram ZGU385SMSS has met the criteria quite well: high heat 18K BTU (I do a lot of stir fry cooking with wok, prefer 16K+ BTU if possible) and low enough true simmer option, easy to clean. At the same time the salesman offered Thermodor SGSX365FS and Wolf. Both are 400+ more than GE. With research found several posts online (here and others) complains that GE monogram 36" has problem when water/fluid gets under the knob and repair cost is not low. It just hesitates my decision on it. Does anyone have this cooktop and would share their experience?
I also read here that bluestar open burner has even higher BTU which seems to fits better. Anybody used it before?
Thanks for any input.
