Gas Cooktop: BlueStar, FiveStar, Bertazzoni or Wolf?

epicuriositykilledthecatfish | Sep 30, 2008 08:28 PM

I am considering these manufacturers for a slide-in, range-style gas cooktop and want to get some recent opinions on reliability, ease of use, design etc. My builder says he has had no end of trouble from the Wolf cooktops that he has installed for customers. He favors GE Monogram but I want the industrial style and capacity of a more powerful cooktop (not to mention I hate the idea of knobs on the cooktop rather than on the front).

My budget is somewhat restricted ($3-4K) so keeping that in mind.... if you had to do it all over again, which would you pick?
