Rated 5 out of 5 by kjh1 Great cooktop
I replaced an old 30" 4 burner cooktop with the Dacor 30" gas cooktop and have been so happy!! It is much easier to clean and has much more cooking surface area than my old cooktop. I also really love the functionality of the center burner with the low simmer and the extra hot pot boiling burner. I can boil water quickly or melt chocolate or cook rice perfectly every time. Far superior to my old cooktop in every way.
Rated 5 out of 5 by WatchCaptain Oustanding Cooktop is pleasure to use!
When remodeling our kitchen we wanted something that would cook like the big pro-grade range we had in our previous house. Because of the configuration of this kitchen, we could not install a large range. The Dacor cooktop was recommended to us as one that would be at least as good as what we had been used to in our previous house. The Dacor in use has been a joy. It is easy to clean (much easier than the big range we had before) and even easier than the glass top high end consumer grade gas cooktop we were replacing. The Dacor is much more precise in its control of cooking temperatures, it allows pans to be easily moved from burner to burner, and the diversity of heating levels makes it easy to select just the right level for any type cooking: sautéing, simmering, boiling, etc. My favorite is the center burner for cooking stews, chili, gumbo, etc. You can sear the meat, bring the soup or stew to boil and then simmer precisely, all on the same burner. Even with the 30" model we have, all five burners can be used simultaneously if you are careful in your choice of pans. We would have bought the 36" model if it would have fit our configuration, but we are well pleased with the 30" now that we have been using it for more than a year. We have had no problems with the cooktop, the knobs are still like new, but we are careful not to let skillets or large pans hang over and get too near them, especially if using high heat. I don't think any knobs are designed to handle the direct heat that would result from that kind of treatment.
The Dacor is so much better than the high end consumer grade cooktop it replaced and didn't cost much more than the current version of our old one would have. I highly recommend the Dacor!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Victor42 30" Natural Gas Cooktop has one main drawback in middle burner
The Gas Cooktop material wise is well built, but when it comes to the middle burner someone in the planning stage did not do his/her homework. To simplify my point let me explain: the aluminum plate which is screwed down by three little small screw has no seal underneath. This fault causes oil, liquids, sauces or any spill to flow under the plate and there's no way anyone can tell except by removing the screws and plate. Just finish cleaning the Cooktop and let me tell it was a mess under the plate. Great product, except for that fault, that can easily be solved by rubber seal.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kgraas Five Burners = PERFECT Cooking Design
After 25 years using the (chipped) enamel-clad gas cook top that came with the house, we had water damage that required substantial work to our kitchen. We decided it was time to replace it. We looked at so many brands and models it made my brain hurt, but always I kept coming back to the 36-inch 5-burner stainless steel Dacor. And boy am I happy with it. The electric ignition is .much better than having a pilot light on all the time. The burners light quickly. Below the grates is easy to clean up because removing the grates makes the area completely accessible. The grates come clean easily and if one is not always good about cleaning up, anything that has gotten baked on comes off with a brief soak. But the BEST part of the cook top is the center burner. As one that uses a really big stock pot and frying pan often, I greatly appreciate the dual flame, as things heat up about five times faster and cook more evenly...and when you need a very low heat...you GOT it! And even with the big pot/pan on the burner, there is still plenty of room for larger pots on the other burners. I can testify that I am actually cooking a lot more often than I did before we installed our Dacor, because cooking is such a pleasure now that I have it.
