Pros:The oven looks good but does not work properly.

Cons:This oven does not work properly.

The Bottom Line: Don't buy this oven; it's not worth the price because it doesn't work properly


We spent a lot of money on this oven and learned after the fact that the broiler does not work properly.  When we purchased the oven, we were told that it performed exceptionally well.  I do a lot of cooking and soon learned that the broiler broils extremely unevenly.  Food in the center of the oven burns, while that on the outer edges of a pan is barely toasted or browned, no matter which broiler setting is used.   Initially Dacor said that it was my error and suggested several steps that I could take to ensure the food broiled evenly.  I tried all their recommendations faithfully but the results did not vary.  After months of discussion, many test photos sent via email, and service calls, it appears that the problem is one of design. Dacor, while admitting a problem, and saying the results of broiling are unacceptable, offers no solutions.  They say the results are in line with other "high end" appliances.  Before you buy any oven, make sure you test the broiler, if you expect to use it.  I also tried the temperature probe the other day, and it does not appear to work either, but I don't plan to report it because I know Dacor will not fix it.
