Cooktop - 24 inch Gas Cook Top, 4 Burners - Modular Series by Bertazzoni
Love this stovetop!
I would highly recommend this stovetop. The size is perfect for the new galley on our boat. Real professional look, the grates are heavy iron, not cheap - the grates are in two pieces instead of four, makes for easy cleaning. Works great too! Beautiful, impressive and worth the money.

Love this Stove Top
So far I really like this stove top. I replaced a standared sized range with an undermount 24 inch oven and this 24 in Stove Top in a small gally style kitchen. I was a little worried that it might be difficult to fit multiple pots and pans on it during heaving cooking but we successfully fixed Thanksgiving dinner with multiple dishes cooking at the same time with no problems. The small right side burner is fine for simmering and perfect for my small coffee/espresso percalator. For normal everyday cooking it has plenty of room and on top of that it's great looking. Gives a very high end european look to a small kitchen. Also the cook top is fully enclosed so easy to clean and feels very heavy duty/well constructed.
Then only drawback to this cook top is that you may want to have an experienced plumber hook up your gas line. I ran into problems because the gas regulator and connectors include an L shaped attachement. This which basically means that even though the stove top fits in a 24 in space because of the L shaped piece the regulator (as set up by the factory) would stick out from the side of the cook top by about 6 or 8 inches so it would not be able to fit into a 24in base cabinet. Fortunately after working with it my plumber was able to hook it up without the L shaped piece so that that gas connections all run straight back (which makes more sense).
Also, the burners take an oddly long time to stay lit. When you press the start mechanism and hold it the burners light but if you don't keep it held down for a little while the burner keeps going out. It's not horrible, but it is a bit annoying sometimes.
