  • overpriced and dysfunctional

    Nov 19, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy to use, dual fuel, pure convection/convection bake/conventional options
    Cons: very difficult to clean cooktop, major parts failed within 4 1/2 years of purchase

    Summary: UPDATE: Please note that a Dacor representative did contact me approximately six weeks after the problem occurred and the company did reimburse me for the cost of the part (but not the labor to install it). for the record, it took approximately another ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks nice when new. Dual fuel is a nice feature.
    Cons: Oven panel and handle crack, burners not reliable.

    Summary: Over the last 6 years, we've experienced problems with burner ignition, prompting 2 service calls when they would not light at all. We continue to have problems like the front burner attempting to ignite while turning on the back burner. We're just ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cast iron continuous grates, dual fuel, high-end look without high-end price.
    Cons: stainless top stained. glitches in control panel. heavy door, needs to be strapped to wall.

    Summary: After shopping around, I choose the Dacor because of looks and price. After comparing stoves on Epinions, I knew what I wanted in a stove. The dual fuel feature is wonderful. I had never owned a gas cook top before and have come to love it as much as ... read more

    Jan 6, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: looks good
    Cons: almost everything else

    Summary: I purchased this stove approximately six years ago and it was a source of frustration from day one. I wanted a duel fuel slide-in range. This was going to be a splurge for me as I love to cook. I hadn't been looking at Dacor, I had been planning to buy ... read more

    Pros: Heats water
    Cons: The product. The service. The company.

    Summary: - BIG MISTAKE! STAY AWAY FROM DACOR Gas Cook Top I needed the stove to work on LP. The LP conversion was done at the factory. This is good, you might think. Not so. The gas cook top has exceptionally poor flame control on all 4-burners, ... read more

    Pros: Great control over gas cooktop. Fast electric oven warm up.
    Cons: Stupid timer control.

    Summary: I got my stainless RSD30 from eBay for $1000. A stove repairman apparently swapped it out for a new one under warranty because if some discoloration inside the oven (I can't see it). I have been using it for about 10 months now and absolutely love it. ... read more

    Pros: Pretty
    Cons: Cost, unreliability, difficult to clean, sporadic ignitors. Horrible service.

    Summary: We bought our Dacor range as part of a kitchen update and discarded our $800 Roper gas range, which looked a little ratty but worked without a problem for more than 25 years. We hope others can avoid that mistake. Our Dacor range is less than two ... read more

    Pros: sleek design, single piece stove top, nice convection oven
    Cons: very prone to problems/breaking

    Summary: We bought this range because it is a sleek design, high BTU burners, a self-cleaning convection oven, a single piece range top, and it had a kit for propane. The oven is also very large for a 30" due to high tech oven wall insulation. We nearly choked on ... read more

    Pros: Nice looking. Has worked well for our family.
    Cons: Cosmetic design flaws. Poor customer service attitude.

    Summary: We got this stove in 2002 and it looked nice and still works fine for our modest needs. However, the front panel has broken twice through no fault of ours and Dacor would cover the cost of replacement but not the labor ($200). Our neighbor who got one ... read more

    Cons: Oven has seldom worked properly. Numerous service calls and money expended. Poor Dacor support.

    Summary: Many problems from day 1. Dacor was only moderately helpful, and did not stand solidly behind their product. The cooktop works fine, and is very nice. The oven and oven controls have malfunctioned over and over again. We are now looking at our 7th ... read more
