Double dimmer switch?

I have a lutron double switch, esch switch controls a light in the kitchen. I have hockey puck lights over the sink and a overhead track light for a portion of the kitchen. I want a double dimmer switch to use as dimmers for each light.. Is this possible?

Double dimmer switch?

You will need two dimmers in a 2 gang box.

Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.

Lutron does make one.
But, you are limited to 300W per switch.
You will also run into box fill problems, unless you have a large and deep box.
The 2 dimmers in a 2 gang is probably the better way to go.
