dcs 36inch ag versus wolf 30 inch dual

Dear all,

I have read and re-read posts, to determine between these 2 units. I am close to executing a remodel, and look forward to get getting the best possible kitchen within space provided,

I would like recommendations in determining on how enamel cooktop of Wolf will fare with the beaded blast rangetop of DCS over long term.
Are you happy with it?
Eventually the ranges will look used, but can anyone please recommend on how these surfaces look after long use. Stainless Steel will get scratched, but after getting random scratches initially, does it look better? (kinda like a well used Stainless steel vessel ) than an enamel rangetop?
I will expect to have boil overs (milk),
. My mom in a different country has a stainless steel cook top and loves the ease of use.

next:I am struggling between these choices.
Between 36"DCS AG and 30" Wolf DF -

I worry about splitting of oven enamel in Wolf, loud fan noices in DCS, Yellowing or browinng of SS surface in DCS, and wonder if will I like the enamlled top look of Wolf.

I have tried making tortillas (fresh ones) on wolf. It works great. Love its looks of Wolf and DCS is pretty good too.

If anything - I want to clean lesser and want the appliance to stay nicer looking longer. (even with I expecting to have boil overs with milk).

We don't use m/w. Suspicious of its health hazards, and are fine using range for reheating. Range is heavily used.
We are vegetarians (egg ok).
I bake cookies/cakes and snacks in oven and home made pizzas.
Most of my cooking is in the range. I amake 3 meals a day, fresh.
I make fresh whole wheat tortillas everyday on the gas range. (Picture spilling of flour as the tortilla cooks directly over the range and bubbles up)
Milk spill overs ( about two times a week)
My current black enamel looks pretty bad around the burner... and even the burner (sealed ) functions okay but looks very dirty.

I am happy with sim of both units, I am happy that both are similar in BTUs,
I didn't want the center burner in 30 inch DCS and hence haven't considered that here.
I use about 3 burners at a time at max.

Self cleaning option isn't a must -but I read tha Wolf DF has lesser issues than Wolf AG, hence going with it,. and also DF does better in ovens.

Thank you!

I have had the 30 inch AG DCS for 5 1/2 years, it preforms great and problem free. The dual stacked simmer on all burners is great, the infrared broiler is too. The SS top is easy to keep clean. Most nights I just tip a burner and wipe splatters. Once I had a brownish stain around a burner and a little BKF took it right off. I am not a fancy baker and was concerned about going to a gas oven but so far everything I've done has been perfect.

I'd go with the larger unit myself.

I'm not a fan of enamelled tops at all which deterred us from the Wolf. We just ordered a 36" DSC on Saturday. We won't be moving in our new home until end of March so won't be able to give you any experienced info on it. The salesman sold both Wolf and DCS and other higher end brands and said in his opinion the DCS was better than the Wolf. I didn't ask him to explain as we were in a hurry and decided long ago that we would be getting the DCS.

DCS is also having a promotion, if you buy a 36" or larger range you get free dishwasher drawers. We are also excited to be getting those as well.
