36 inch gas cooktop recommendations please

she_007December 4, 2013

Trying to select a 36 inch has cooktop for our new home. Currently, we are considering DCS, Dacor, and GE cafe. Advice on these? Any other recommendations? We would like to keep it under $1500.

Thank you!!

Take a look at the BlueStar RBCT365BSS, I'm not sure it fits your $1500 budget. A phone call will let you know that.

Thanks! I wasn't sure about the open burner, but will think about it some more.
What hood cfm do you recommend with the BlueStar?

I just went with the open burner in a Capital Cuinarian Rangetop, the only other option I looked at was the Bluestar. Because of the open burners. I got the Capital at a slightly better price, thats why I chose Capital. I wanted the Bluestar cooktop, but my wife liked the rangetop look. I got the rangetop, LOL.

In general total your BTU's then divide by 100. For the Bluestar that's 610 CFM, maybe go a bit highter for fudge factor. For me the only cooktop I would even consider in the Bluestar.

Love our Dacor Renaissance that we got in February 2010. Works great and looks great and surprisingly easy to keep clean, especially the bead blasted surface around the burners.
