30" gas cooktop

gourmanda | Sep 23, 2013 06:26 AM

We need to replace out current electric radiant cooktop as we are down to only one working burner. I have read the many posts here and on THS/Gardenweb regarding gas vs. induction and have decided I'm going with a gas cooktop. I do have a single induction burner that I enjoy using but still am going with gas for the main cooking surface. That being said, I need recommendations for a 30" gas cooktop that ideally is in the $1000 range. Specifically:

-There are two of us on most nights with occasional parties/family
-I cook usually 5 nights a week...casual to gourmet; pasta is often in the rotation
-missionaries from the Church of Holy Induction need not comment
-minimum BTU on "power" burner?
-are 5 burners on a 30" cooktop practical?
-not looking for a range/range top/stove
-must haves/things to look out for such as sealed burners, continuous grates, etc?

Any suggestions would be most welcome! I need to get the replacement in ASAP :)
