advice on 30" gas cooktop - bosch or wolf?

10 years ago

I'm torn between the two below gas cooktops. The 30" five-burner bosch gas cooktop (top-rated on consumer reports) or the 30" four-burner Wolf gas cooktop. Must be a 30" and cooktop (vs. commercial-style range). I took my most-used pots and pans to the store and laid them out in various configurations; both cooktops fit perfectly.

Here are the details:


16,000 Btu/hr
10,000 Btu/hr (x2)
5,500 Btu/hr (x2)

15,000 / 950 Btu/hr
12,000/ 800 Btu/hr
9,200 / 300 Btu/hr (x2)

Any thoughts? Wolf is nearly $1k more expensive. I don't want to get it just for the sake of "Wolf is a higher-end brand". Wolf has simmer setting on all burners, but Bosch has two simmers, too. Bosch's center burner has higher BTUs, better for boiling water faster for pasta, etc. They seem equally easy to clean. Both auto-reignite, illuminated knobs. Cutout size similar.

I just cant decide!
