So good I bought it again We first purchased this cooktop in 2013 and I loved the high heat and true simmer temp control. Then in 2014 our home burned to the ground due to a electrical fire in the garage. When it came to deciding on kitchen appliances for our new home, I once again chose the very same unit, but this time with the Downdraft and Remote Blower, which we installed over the weekend. I am looking forward to cooking for my family and friends once again. March 2, 2015
Great cooktop for the money We use this top everyday for everything from boiling water to cooking extensive meals. I have found the product to be easy to use and easy to clean. If there were any downside, I would like to have an option of black knobs to offset the stainless. Overall great product and great value so far. December 15, 2014
Great cooktop with large cooking area compared to other 36 inchers. Knobs seemed to lose their stainless coating the first time washed The permaclean surface does get stained from burned on spills and I am unable to clean it very well. The large burner "pops" a little when it between high and low. Otherwise a great cooktop that I recommend. Bob July 23, 2014
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. April 6, 2014
Excellent product for the multi purposing cook. We replaced a glass top unit with this product after reading about its performance. The full metal design (competitors have plastic dials that melt) is very durable, but the ability to move pots and pans by sliding across the surface (like a glass top without the scratching) makes preparing multi level meals a snap....and safe. December 16, 2013
Love this cook top. Replaced a GE Monogram 30 inch 4 burner cook top with this Dacor 5 burner 30" cook top.model and so happy we did. The way it is configured, it gives a lot more cooking options. The clean up is with soap and water and is amazingly easy. We really love this and all of our Dacor kitchen items. December 14, 2013
Love the surface The grates on my cooktop are all one continual surface which I really like. It is great when I have all burners going. The surface under the grates is so easy to clean. One of the few things I don't like it that the knobs are hard to remove for cleaning. December 13, 2013
This product has a great design This product has a textured drip area that make clean ups a cinch. No need to worry about scratching the stainless steel surface. I have had the cooktop for about 10 months and have enjoyed every minute. It has added elegance to my kitchen and I've received several compliments on it. December 13, 2013
