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).
Excerpt: Poor quality product. Thank god we bought this piece fo junk from ABT since they have been phenonmial on replacing and repair this piece of junk. Dacor customer service is a awful compounded with the fact Dacor products are awful. A simple Google search will show you why Dacor is a company who specializes in making absolute garbage.
Pros: Attractive Design, High-Powered Burners
Cons: Difficult To Clean, Imprecise Temp Control, Unreliable Performance
Excerpt: Moved to a new house, planning to replace the range with my beloved Dacor. The large continuous grates are great for large, heavy pots. LOVE the griddle that fits over two of the 14" wide grates. Simmer rocks, nice power for other burners, heat is very even. Convection bakes beautifully and you can fit a full caterers' pan. Porcelain cooktop and sealed burners make it easy to clean.
Pros: Heats Up Quickly, High-Powered Burners, Large Surface Area
Excerpt: We've had it for three days, hadn't used the oven yet. Wife fired it up tonight not realizing how much putrid machine-shop stink it would make. I'm sure we are gonna love this range but at the moment we are gagging. I don't know why they don't run it at the factory to burn off the schmutz as a option or extra. Don't do what we did, do what the manual says.. get it hot open the windows shut it off and leave for the day.
