Product Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 56 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 5 out of 5 by An amazing cooktop I have been very happy with my purchase of this cooktop. I cook for my family almost every night and needed a cooktop that would be reliable and easy to keep clean. This one has a special finish that lets me scrub it clean without leaving any scratches on the stainless steel. The power burner helps me cook much faster than with my old cooktop. Plus, it looks really super cool in my kitchen! 12/28/10
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
