DCS range or Thermador?? Please help!

I need to make a decision by Monday! I am trying to decide between a 36" DCS range or 36" Thermador (also considering Jenn air). Can anyone tell me which I should go with?

I like the burners on the Thermador best

I have a DCS range and the dual stacked on all 5 burners is great to have. I do simmer a lot. Are you thinking range or cooktop?

We're looking for a range. Both are all gas. Thermador seems to be a more known name where I live. DCS is very unfamiliar. Still looking for more information. One problem is that the counter is 27 1/2" like the DCS....the Thermador has a 24" depth. How do I work that out?

Thermador make both a 27 inch deep and a 24 inch deep pro-range.
The 27 is called a Pro-Grand and the 24 is a Pro-Harmony

it seems like you can't go wrong with either one. We just bought the DCS after extensive study on GW and elsewhere. In the end, the new 2011 DCS had lots of what we wanted and was a solid 800 bucks cheaper. They have been around for a long time, but don't seem that popular yet...I noticed that our local PC Richards is pushing it now "If you don't need a Wolf for the status of it"...we went to a privately owned but LARGE store and they were really showcasing the DCS big time...they felt that especially the new 2011 models --- our salesman felt it was "the best bang for the professional range buck".
That said, Thermador has long-term name recognition and everybody does like their star burners!
Good luck deciding

I prefer Thermador, but that's just me. AND if you purchase a 36" or larger range, you get a free dishwasher with their 1-2-Free Promotion.

About the dishwasher: It's the emerald series (their middle dishwashing series) and values at around 1200.

I'm not too familiar with the simmer on DCS, but I can't imagine it comes anywhere near the low simmer option on Thermador.

Jakvis is correct that Therm makes two models: one with a 24" depth and one with a 27".

Bump!
We are being sucked in by the 36" Thermador with free dishwasher, but I am finding berry few recent reviews....any feedback?

Although Thermador is a well-established brand, I would forewarn you that a relative, who has worked in the appliance industry for decades, advised us to steer clear of Therms right now, as they are apparently having quality control issues. While the problems don't seem to be appearing in every single unit they sell, it does appear that their quality is extremely hit or miss. I know people who have both hit and missed the mark with their Therms.

Are any of you Thermador owners still here? How are your appliances going? How is the dishwasher? I'm looking at the ProHarmony and the Emerald. There's also the option to upgrade to the Sapphire for $500 extra. I haven't decided...

Boymom, did you get your Thermador? How do you like it?

We just purchased a new all gas model DCS and love it. The DCS dual stacked burners, and especially simmer can't be beat. Yesterday I took a picture of the a dish I had simmering and sent it to my mom who has a Thermador (her simmer is good, but clicks on and off). We were choosing between Wolf and DCS AG and our dealer also said he felt the DCS was the best deal and he liked the DCS burners better. Good luck with your decision!
