At last I can simmer!
Brilliant designed stove top.
Dual control burners have two regulators inbuilt, want loads of heat turn the knob one way, want low heat to simmer turn the knob the other way.
This cooktop is just brilliant, takes a little while to work out which way to turn the knob. But being able to control the heat input when cooking is just great. Our old gas stove you had to simmer on the inner wok ring with the lid off. All the other burners didn't control down low enough.
Made in Australia too.
Only minus I have found is that the alignment of the text on the knobs is not central and this is a pity, I expect better from Australian quality control.

Kambo's store manager, Glenn says of the Canning Vale store stocks Tudor Romeo cooktops because "the cooktop is the best replacement for any customer that have had an old Chef, Westinghouse or Simpson cooktop installed 15 years or more ago. It is one of the three brands that will fit and the sell price is very affordable."
He recommends Tudor "mainly due to its sizing but also because of the options available, one or two woks or none."
When updating the cooktop in your kitchen, you might be restricted by the space your old cooktop occupied. Tudor cooktops are the solution.
While most other cooktop brands measure 860x510mm, Australian made Tudor manufactures 930x430mm cooktops, which is beneficial for the replacement of older style cooktops.
Retravision O'Conner is one Retravision store which offers the Tudor cooktop range. Whitegoods manager Gino Raffaele says Tudor cooktops are of benefit to customers because of their size.
"We can offer the customer the whole range but we mainly carry the 900mm gas cooktop which comes in different finishes and ranges from $799 to $1199," he says. "We have TD100 twin wok in stainless steel, TD105 black glass with left hand wok also available in right hand
(TD109) and TD115, which is a 600mm white glass cooktop.
"the Tudor gas cooktop comes in black and white glass and stainless steel with a choice of a left or right hand side wok burner, fantastic for Asian cooking and easy to clean."
Gino says when shopping for a cooktop customers should look for something they are comfortable with."It should be easy to clean and have cast iron trivets and burners," he says.
Energy Hot House owner, Rose said, "We stock these cooktops because they are easy to sell as they fit or cover existing cut outs that many other cooktops won’t cover, therefore very rarely do bench tops need to have extra cut outs made, making install easier, neater and cheaper for the customer.
Energy Hot House recommends Tudor cooktops because of their "versatility". The owner said "
I don’t know of any other domestic cooktop that has such a large burner output, almost commercial size at 18mj and conversely, in the same cook top, the smallest burner at 1mj, almost the heat of a candle, therefore allowing great instant flexibility in cooking."
"Tudor cooktops are available in popular stainless steel, black or white glass, allowing for customer colour choice.
Energy Hot House also promotes Tudor cooktops features, "Stability & Easy clean; Tudor cooktop trivets with their rubber stoppers are exceptionally stable and come apart for easy cleaning." The owner said " I can say this with confidence as I have a Tudor Cooktop myself and have the greatest confidence in recommending them to any one who loves to cook as they are the MOST OBEDIENT appliance in the kitchen. You want it HOT you’ve GOT IT."
