i like some of the options, including this flush-mount.
BUT...
ONE DESIGN FLAW.
i made a mistake in my choice, so here it is.
the grates in a cooktop should be (how do i make this clear)
an overall flat surface.
i'll find an example...

for example, the bosch one, continuous grates was the term i was looking for.
and buttons in the front i think are also key. for me anyway.
i'm left handed and works in our kitchen arrangement.
i did tons of research, consumers report,etc. just to have on file.
somehow, after 40 years of good service with the previous owners,
our appliances are pooping out one by one.
we made a hasty decision, and fell in love with the bertazzoni.
i still love it but with all my research, i knew about continuous grates.
it has that flaw. some of our most used pans tip over a bit. we cook ALOT.
sliding on and off the heat with 3 or 4 things going. the slight tipping over
is a bit anoying.
one of the best rated, (i would have to look it up), and very inexpensive,
had continuous grates, but the knobs were big and ugly plastic.
i'm a knob snob. so i'll put up with a few flaws for good looks.
does that make me a 'design sufferer'?.

Hey there Rockland - Thanks for all of the info. I've been reading more than I want to about cooktops so I appreciate it. This is the beauty I have my eye on (I need a 30" gas unit that's shallow):

Smeg has a very cool looking induction range coming out soon. I've had a completely un-mid century modern induction cook top (Kenmore Elite) for a year and a half. I love it, love it, love it and would never go back to gas or regular electric.

http://www.eartheasy.com/article_induction_cooking.htm

so thrilled this discussion includes induction choices.
i lost that battle. the 'cave man' in the household must have
big gas flame. :)
a solution was to have both, one of the units being a two burner.
induction units are getting very affordable now. many choices.
a gas line existing, and often monthly power outages, it made sense
to have both. but involved changing out countertop and a bit of hacking
of an original base cabinet drawer. also, having both got a little pricy.
one thing we agreed upon was to not change our original cabinets or
counters. (thanks to futura girl, cave man is warming up to the original
white formica counters)
i hope my vintage double wall oven holds up. thats another appliance that
has many new options now...
