Another level is a "professional" model. They look just like the standard 
residential stovetops but are built for higher temperatures. Our plastic knobs 
have melted on our residential stove top. My professional level has stainless 
steel knobs.

When I inquired about stainless steel replacements for the CH stovetop, the 
manufacturer said no because if the knobs have melted, we have exceeded the 
safe levels for the stove.

And be sure to get a simmer burner so soups can be simmered and left without 
worry of burning or boiling over.
