Recommendations for Dimmable Under Cabinet lights


Just remodeled my kitchen and now at the point to install some under cabinet lights. I had ran an extra romex line with the intention of using it for the cabinet lights on a lutron dimmer.

I did google some forum discussions, but they were a few years old. I'm sure better products has been released since then.

Led's preferable, but will also consider xenon if they led's can not be harwired with a dimmer. I need about 7'.

Thanks

Standard puck lights are dimmable. They commonly use a 12v transformer. Either an inline dimmer or a dedicated outlet for the lights with a wall dimmer.

I prefer some "standard", hardwired xenon lights.

Isn't it "bad" to dim the outlet if a transformer is plugged into it?
