LEDs and dimmers, Stepped dimmers?

We've got LED downlights in the kitchen (spec below). I'd like to change the light switch to a dimmer.

1. Anyone got a suggestion of good dimmer switches for these lights?
We've used Varilight JQP252W V-Pro dimmers for other rooms but the dimmers are a bit variable (different LEDs at different brightnesses, bit flickery). Any better suggestions?

2. Is it possible to buy a dimmer that has 2 or 3 set points, say high, medium, and low, rather than twisty knob type dimmer?

Think carefully why you want dimmers in a kitchen. It is a work room where you want maximum light.
Thanks. We've got lots of light in the room, but its a kitchen diner so would be nice to have the bright downlights dimmable.
