Rotary LED dimmer

Does anyone make a rotary dimmer that works with LED bulbs? I haven't been able to find one. Thanks

Why do you want a rotary dimmer?

There was a Leviton one that was supposed to work with LED's and it didn't.

So.... no... I don't know of any round style dimmers that will work reliably with LED bulbs.

Larry, I was hoping to get a rotary dimmer because the switch is part of a three-switch gang. If I can't get a rotary dimmer I'll have to replace the other two non-dimmer switches with decoras.

Why can't you use a decora style dimmer and still keep your standard switches and just change cover plates? Or am I missing something? Leviton Decora 3-Gang Midway 2-Toggle Combination Nylon Wall Plate, White-R52-PJ226-00W - The Home Depot

Or use a dimmer that fits a normal switch plate. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Lutron-To...H-WH/202746671

Ah! I wasn't aware of that switch plate and dimmer. Will definitely look for them. Thank you very much!
