The Distinctive Gas Cooktop does more than enhance the look of countertops and cabinetry, it brings a smile to home chefs as they prepare every meal. Both the 36- and 30-inch models feature professional performance, innovative features and the most cooking power available - 54,000 BTU for the 30" model and 60,000 BTU for the 36" model. Two sizes mean you never have to compromise style and performance whether remodeling your entire kitchen or simply replacing your existing cooktop. From their exclusive SimmerSear Burner for the ultimate in precision and control, to their unique PermaClean finish that retains a permanently beautiful surface even after years of cleaning, every detail of the Distinctive Gas Cooktop has been carefully considered to provide you with a lifetime of enjoyment.

Craftsmanship, plus style, is what makes Dacor's Distinctive 30" gas cooktop a kitchen amenity that not only enhances counter-tops and cabinetry, but brings a smile to the chef with its professional performance and features. Over-sized pots and pans transfer easily from one continuous platform grate to another.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 57 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great styling and feeling of quality but Perma-clean surface not so great. From the first glance, the Dacor 36" Distinctive cook top appealed to us. However, I have used the cook top for a week now and the Perma-clean surface already has discoloration and marks on it. Even though Dacor claims the surface will not be marred with scrubbing, it is not so. I used fresh soapy water and a sponge to clean up spills followed by The Works glass and stainless cleaner with a soft cloth and still the discoloration remains. More work in clean-up I do not need. It is too fussy for a hard core cook and I long for the white porcelain of my former cooktop. Features I do like are the blue indicator light, the responsive control knobs, and the simmer-sear feature of the mail burner. 12/4/12
Rated 2 out of 5 by Could be better. I purchased this cook top in May 2012. Its been good, but i miss my Kitchen Aid Range :( The sides of the cook top that are Stainless are beginning to rust! Also, the knobs on the front no longer have the High/Low/ and heat markings. They rub off when you use them! I am disappointed in Dacor, I truly believed they were a high-end product. Hopefully my warranty will cover this! 2/23/13
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not as Advertised We are very disappointed in our stainless steel Dacor gas cooktop. "Permaclean" is a misnomer, unless it means that you will be * permanently * trying to clean your cooktop. The area around the simmer unit has become * permanently * discolored in a circular pattern (not resulting from food spills). There are water spots, scratches and other stains that are * permanent * and will not clean up despite careful cleaning with approved products. 5/29/13
Rated 1 out of 5 by Gas Regulator failed on first day We like the look of the cook top; however after installed, we smell gas around regulator, apparently the gas is leaking from orifice because of diaphragm failed. it is the first of using and regulator failed! 6/8/13
