comment Wisdom of using open source code in a commercial software product
On the other hand, wanting a custom solution over the EF sounds a bit like NIHS. My data schema is quite complex with lots of relationships (foreign keys), and getting to the point where my custom solution manages those relationships as well as the EF would out-of-the-box would certainly take a while.

Even if performance is less of a concern, the EF gives me less control. Introducing caching is a bit harder if it becomes necessary down the road; Dapper would be easier to fit into a more custom solution, in addition to pushing the necessity of caching further down the road in the first place.

Dapper is complex because it's generalized. If I were to write my own solution, I would do a lot of boilerplate dataset-to-objects conversion code (i.e. MyClass.Property = set.Tables[0].Rows[i]["Property"].ToString()).
