update 2010: Lutron vs. Leviton dimmers and switches?
I'm hoping to find stainless dimmer switches for our kitchen renovation, and Leviton seems to make these, but our electrician is partial to Lutron, which seems not to have a stainless option for the switch. Would you knowledgeable folks comment on whether there is a difference in quality? or a reason not to use metallic wall plates and switches? Any difference in the energy efficiency of the switches? Any other manufacturer I should be considering?
