gas cooktop, $1500 budget: dcs, dacor, ge cafe, or ?

I've been reading the forums, which have been fantastic, but I still need some help. We are building a house and have budgeted about $1500 for a gas cooktop. We have been looking at DCS, Dacor and GE Cafe. Either of these would probably be better than any cooktop I've used. I enjoy cooking, and look forward to experiencing it on a nice cooktop. We are having a very hard time choosing.

People seem to like the DCS better than the Dacor - however, I wouldn't be doing lots of low simmer and would like some power for wok and other Asian cooking. Is DCS still the better choice? How hard is it to clean? The ease of cleaning of the Dacor is appealing, but I don't want to make the choice based on that.

Also, should we consider the GE Cafe? Anything else in this price range?

Thanks so much for your help!!

Are you looking at 30" or 36" cooktops ?

Oops I forgot to mention. 36 inches.

We are also considering a Dacor cooktop and was curious which one you chose and thoughts. Thanks!

Hi- I have the GE Cafe for over two years now and love it. I don't really simmer anything so can't comment on that but the large burner is perfect for high heat stir fry which I do frequently. I have really enjoyed using the cooktop.
