Summary: Overall not a bad unit. However the first one came in damaged, we had to wait another 2 weeks for a replacement. 14 months after purchase one of their "signature selling features" the light up blue knob dies, and it is not covered under warranty. $4000 range and I need to pay for a faulty LED to be changed by a technician!! Very disappointed with Dacor.
Summary: "This Dacor Range is a high-end centerpiece for your kitchen. Besides the pro-style stainless steel construction there's extra design touches like light-up dials and continuous grates. The cooking performance is great too with high-power burners and a convection oven.
Summary: My wife and I could not be more happy with this range. We have been using it for more than a year without any problem. There are no electronic displays on this model just knobs for the four burners and oven. The simplicity of this range (as well as its reliability) is what makes this a great product. We will never go back to electric.
Summary: I am an avid cook and baker, therefore, I need a range that can keep up with my cooking needs. So far, this range has been an absolute joy to cook on. It also looks fabulous in my kitchen as well. After looking at quite a few brands, this range looked the sharpest...a step up from all others. It is manual clean oven, but so far has been easy to clean (just make sure you clean spills inside the oven after use).
Summary: We purchased this range as a replacement. So far I am delighted with the performance. Frankly I could not be happier with the product. Love the dual fuel feature, the oven cooks evenly and the burners on top have great heat control. I am sorry others have had problems.
support inadequate and problems with the indicator knob lights

Summary: we bought this stove oven over one year ago and we also bought the extended warranty. the indicator light on the front on the left back broke and this is the second light to give out. the first one was under the warranty of one year. the extended warranty that came with the oven stove does not want to fix the light since it is their opinion a cosmetic problem. hence it cost 120 dollars to fix. i emailed dacor to help and they haven't responded.
Summary: My first Dacor range, a bottom of the line model, fell apart and was replaced by this model. Baking in this oven is unpredictable. A cake that is supposed to take 45 mins can take 80 mins. The temp fluctuates too much. Also the enamel interior of my stove has cracked and is chipping off allowing the metal underneath to rust. Beautiful stove but spend your money elsewhere. If I could I would pitch this one and buy another brand.
Summary: This range is a beauty. So far, everything works as advertised, and there are no problems. The simmer burner is really cool. This model is the one without self cleaning oven, so the oven is slightly larger inside. We haven't had to clean the oven yet, so I will reserve judgement about the wisdom of this choice, which, by the way, saved us a few bucks. It's nice to have a range with such fine quality. Cooking on it feels great because everything works smoothly.
