Important Safety Instructions
General Safety Precautions
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury or death when using your oven, follow basic safety precautions,
including the following:
warning
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
warning
If you receive a damaged product, immediately contact
your dealer or builder. Do not install or use a damaged
appliance.
Make sure that the oven has been properly installed
and grounded by a qualified installer according to the
accompanying installation instructions. Have the installer
show you the location of the fuse or junction box so that
you know where and how to turn off power to the oven.
Do not install, repair or replace any part of the oven unless
specifically recommended in the literature accompanying
it. A qualified service technician should perform all other
service.
Before performing any type of service, make sure that
the electrical power to the oven is turned off at the circuit
breaker or fuse box.
Only use the oven for cooking tasks expected of a home
appliance as outlined in this manual. This oven is not
intended for commercial use.
DO NOT TOUCH THE SURFACES OF THE OVEN
DURING OR IMMEDIATELY AFTER USE.
Make sure individuals who use the oven are able to operate
it properly.
Never allow anyone, including children to sit, stand or climb
on any part of the oven including the door. Doing so may
cause tipping, damage, serious injury or death.
Do not leave children alone or unattended in the area
around the oven. Do not allow children to play with the
controls, pull on the handle(s) or touch other parts of the
oven.
Do not store items of interest to children above the oven.
Children could be burned or injured while climbing on the
appliance.
Do not tamper with the controls.
To prevent the unit from tipping forward and to provide
a stable installation, make sure the oven is secured to
the cabinet according to the accompanying installation
instructions.
Do not heat unopened food containers such as baby food
jars and cans. Pressure build up may cause the container
to burst and cause injury.
Do not use water on grease fires. A violent steam explosion
may result. Smother any flames with a lid, cookie sheet
or flat tray. Use baking soda or a foam extinguisher to
extinguish flaming grease. Be careful to avoid getting
burned.

Keep flammable items, such as paper, cardboard, plastic
and cloth away from and out of the oven. Do not allow pot
holders to touch hot surfaces.
Do not wear loose or hanging apparel while using the oven.
Do not allow clothing to come into contact with the interior
of the oven and surrounding areas during and immediately
after use.
Do not use towels or bulky cloth as pot holders.
Do not use the oven for storage.
Clean and maintain the oven regularly as instructed in this
manual. Keep the entire oven free of grease that could
catch fire.
Do not touch the outside surfaces of the oven during the
self-clean cycle. They will be hot.
Use cookware only for its intended purpose. Check the
manufacturer’s recommendations before use to determine
if a utensil is suitable for use on in an oven. Certain types
of glass, ceramic and earthenware are not suitable for use
in the oven. Personal injury or damage may result from the
improper use of cookware.
Exercise caution when opening the oven door. Let hot air or
steam escape before looking or reaching inside.
Use extreme caution if adding water to food in the oven.
The steam can cause serious burns or scalds.
Use only dry pot holders when removing food and
cookware from the oven. Wet pot holders can cause steam
burns.
For your safety, do not use the oven to cook without the
convection filter(s) installed. When the filter is not installed,
the spinning fan blades at the back of the oven are
exposed.
Do not allow food to sit in the oven for more than one hour
before or after cooking. Eating spoiled food can result in
food poisoning.
Do not leave metal objects, such as aluminum foil, the meat
probe or cookie sheets on the bottom of the oven. Do not
allow the broil elements on the ceiling of the oven chamber
to be covered up. Do not line the oven with aluminum foil or
other materials. Doing so may cause the oven or the items
in it to overheat, creating a fire hazard or causing property
damage.
Non-stick coatings, when heated, can be harmful to birds.
Remove birds to a separate, well-ventilated room during
cooking.

Getting to Know Your Oven
Parts of the Oven
A
Control Panel
Your oven’s control panel consists of keys and a display. Use the control panel to
control all the oven’s features (sometimes called modes.)
B
Air Intake/Exhaust
Slots
The oven draws air in through the intake slots to cool its internal parts. The air
comes out through the exhaust slot at the bottom of the oven. Do not block or
cover the air intake or exhaust slots.
C
Meat Probe Connector
When you use the meat probe, insert the skewer into the meat and plug the other
end into this connector. See the Using the Meat Probe section on page 17 for
proper operation. On double ovens, only the upper oven is equipped with a meat
probe connector.
D
Oven Lights
There are two oven lights inside the oven chamber so that you can easily see the
food inside. Press the light key on the control panel to turn them on. The bulbs are
12 volt, 20 watt, halogen.
E
Rack Supports
There are six sets of rack supports inside each oven chamber. They support the
adjustable oven racks. They are numbered from the bottom up.
F
Door Gasket
The door gasket prevents heat from escaping when the door is closed.
G
Self-Clean Latch
The self-clean latch automatically locks the oven door during the self-clean cycle.
The door latches for your safety. There are very high temperatures inside the oven
during the self-clean cycle.
H
Broil Elements
The broil elements are located on the ceiling of the oven chamber. On some
models, they are hidden behind a glass panel. They are the source of top heat.
J
Convection Fan*
The convection fan blows heated air into the oven chamber during the convection
cooking process. The convection filter covers it.
K
Convection Element*
The convection element heats the air that is blown into the oven chamber by the
convection fan during the convection cooking process. The convection filter covers
it.
L
Convection Filter*
The convection filter covers the convection fan. It helps prevent the transfer of
taste from one food to another when you are cooking a whole meal. It also keeps
the oven cleaner and covers the moving fan blades for safety purposes.
M
Oven Rack
Your oven comes with one GlideRack™ oven rack and a set of standard racks. The
total number of racks depends on the model.
N
Bake Elements
Hidden below the glass panel on the floor of the oven chamber are the bake elements. They are the source of bottom heat.
* Some double ovens are not equipped for convection cooking in the lower oven. These models do not have a convection fan, element and filter in the bottom oven chamber.

Operating Your Oven
Setting the Temperature Scale
Control Panel Settings
The control panel allows you to select the temperature
scale (Fahrenheit or Celsius) it uses to display the cooking
temperature. The oven is preset at the factory to Fahrenheit.
Setting the Time
To set the time:
1. Press the CLOCK key. The colon between the minutes
and seconds on the time display will begin to flash.
To change the temperature scale:
1. Press and hold the BROIL key (under UPPER OVEN
on double ovens) for six seconds.

3. Press START.
important
•
•
•
4. Press CANCEL · SECURE. The control panel will go
back to the regular clock display, set to the new temperature scale.
The clock cannot be set during delay timed cooking, if one
of the timers is in use or if self-clean or Sabbath mode is
active.
After a power failure, the time on the display may flash,
indicating that the time may not be correct.
After pressing the clock key, you must enter the time and
press START soon afterward. If you wait longer than six
seconds between pressing keys, the display will go back to
the original setting.
Before Your Cook...
• When you use your oven to bake or roast, it preheats
automatically. The preheat cycle rapidly brings the
oven chamber up to the proper cooking temperature.
It takes several minutes to preheat the oven. Preheat
time depends on the temperature settings. The time
may be longer depending on the type of electrical
supply in your community. There is no preheat cycle
for any of the broil modes.
24/12 Hour Clock (Military Time)
The oven is set to 12-hour (non-military) time at the factory. 24 hour time is also known as military time.
1:36 PM = 13:36 military time.
• After you pull food out of the oven, it will continue to
cook. This process is called “carry-over.” The larger
the portion of food, the longer it will cook. It is best to
let the meat rest after it comes out of the oven for 10
to 15 minutes before carving. Doing so will allow the
meat to retain its juices and make it easier to carve.
If you want to switch the clock to 24 hour
time or switch from military back to regular
time:
1. Press and hold the clock key for six seconds. The
display will indicate the mode the clock is currently set
to, 12 Hr or 24 Hr.
• Dacor recommends turning the oven on for one hour
at 500°F to burn off any residual oils used during the
manufacturing process. Any of these oils left on the
inner parts can cause an undesirable smell the first
few times the oven is used.
2. Press the # key to change the clock mode. To leave
the setting as is, do not touch any keys.
3. Press CANCEL · SECURE to return to the main display. If you have set the clock to 24 hour time, the
keypad will allow you to enter military time when setting the clock.
CAUTION
Do not allow acids (citrus juices, tomato sauces, etc.) to remain
on the oven’s surfaces. The porcelain finish may stain or pit.
8
Operating Your Oven
To Insert Your GlideRack Oven Rack:
Racks
Your oven comes with a Dacor GlideRack oven rack. You
can pull the GlideRack oven rack out further than the
standard racks and still support heavy pots and pans
full of food. It is great for heavier foods and the optional
Dacor baking stone.
You may use either rack type on any level inside the oven.
warning
To reduce the chance of burns, position the oven racks when the
oven is cool. If you must reposition a rack when the oven is hot,
use pot holders.
1. Hold the GlideRack oven rack with the guides fully
extended away from you (see the diagram below).
2. Align both sets of safety clips (right and left) on the
back of the guides with the oven rack supports as
shown.
To Insert the Standard Oven Racks:
5. Insert the end of the rack with the safety notches into
the oven first.
3. Begin to slide the rack in, lifting the front safety clips
over the front of the oven rack supports.
6. Attach both sides of the rack to the rack supports in
the oven as shown in the diagram below.
4. Push the rack all the way to the back.
7. Begin to slide the rack in, and then, lift up so that the
safety notches clear the ends of the rack supports.
8. Push the rack all the way in with both hands.
5. Grasp the rack in the center of the front and pull. The
rack should come forward while the guides remain in
place.
To Remove the Standard Oven Racks:
To Remove Your GlideRack Oven Rack:
• Grasp it with both hands and pull gently straight out
toward you until it stops.
• If you want to remove an oven rack, grasp it with
both hands and pull gently straight out toward you
until it stops.
• To remove the rack completely, lift the front of the
rack up about six inches and continue to pull it out.
Lifting the rack releases the safety clips. The safety
clips reduce the chances of it coming out of the oven
accidentally.
• To remove the rack completely, lift the front of the
rack up about six inches and continue to pull it out.
Lifting the rack releases the safety notches. The
safety notches reduce the chances of a rack coming
out of the oven accidentally.

Understanding the Various Oven Modes
The three basic styles of cooking in an oven are:
◊ Baking:
The gentle cooking of dry goods such as cookies, cakes, soufflés, etc.
◊ Roasting:
The cooking of meats or vegetables over a period of time.
◊ Broiling:
Cooking with an intense heat for a short amount of time.
Bake
progress of baking whenever possible.
• Use the timers to determine baking time.
Uses only a heat source from below the food. This mode
is the stand-by, non-convection
mode. All baked items will

turn out nicely in this mode.
• Use the lowest rack position.
• Wait until the shortest recommended baking time
before checking the food. For most baked goods, a
wooden toothpick placed in the center should come
clean when the food is done.
Baking Tips
• Follow your recipe’s original cooking time and temperature.
• Do not open the oven door frequently during baking.

Operating Your Oven
For Multiple Rack Baking
Your oven offers three convection cooking
modes:
• Typically, when baking on two racks, use rack positions #1 and #3 or #2 and #4 (counting from the
bottom up).
• Pure Convection
• Convection Bake
• When adapting a single rack recipe to multiple rack
baking, it may be necessary to add to the baking time
due to the extra bulk of the food in the oven.
• Convection Roast
As a general rule, in the convection modes time is about
25% shorter. Set the timer 15 minutes before the shortest
stated time and add more time if necessary.
For Pure Convection and Convection Bake
modes:
Some recipes, especially those that are homemade, may
require adjustment and testing when converting from
standard to convection baking. If you are unsure how to
convert a recipe, begin by preparing the recipe using the
standard Bake settings.

After achieving acceptable results, follow the convection
guidelines in the Dacor cooking guide. If the food is not
cooked to your satisfaction during this first convection
trial, adjust one recipe variable at a time (such as cooking
time, rack position, or temperature) and repeat the convection test. If necessary, continue adjusting one recipe
variable at a time until you get satisfactory results.

Pure Convection
The uniform air circulation provided by Pure Convection
allows you to use more oven capacity at once. Use this

mode for single rack baking, multiple rack baking, roasting, and preparation of complete meals. Many foods,
such as pizzas, cakes, cookies, biscuits, muffins, rolls and
frozen convenience foods can be successfully prepared on
two or three racks at a time. Pure Convection is also good
for whole roasted duck, lamb shoulder and short leg of
lamb.
Convection Bake
Use this mode for single rack baking. The combination of
the convection fan and bottom heat source is best
for2fruit

baked in a deep ceramic dish or earthenware clay pots are
best in this mode. Most of these items cook in a deep pan
and require browning on the top and bottom.

Understanding the Various Oven Modes (Continued)
Your oven offers two broil modes:
Convection Roast
• Broil
Your oven’s Convection Roast mode uses a combination of
the convection fan and heat sources above and below the
1
2
1
2
food. It is best for rib roasts, turkeys, chickens, etc.
• Convection Broil
warning
Roasting Tips
•
All baking modes can be used to successfully roast in your
oven.
However, the Convection Roast mode is recommended to
produce meats that are deliciously seared on the outside
and succulently juicy on the inside in record time. Foods
that are exceptional, when prepared in the Convection
Roast mode, include: beef, pork, ham, lamb, turkey,
chicken and cornish hens.
•
To avoid the damage to the meat probe, remove it from
the oven when using either of the broil modes. It can be
damaged by temperatures above 450°F. If the meat probe
is connected the broil modes will not start. The meat probe
symbol will flash when you attempt to start the oven in one
of the broil modes with the meat probe connected.
Use the Broil and Convection Broil modes only with the oven
door completely closed.
Broiling is a quick and flavorful way to prepare many
foods, including steaks, chicken, chops, hamburgers and
fish.
Always roast meats fat side up in a shallow pan, using a
roasting rack. Always use a pan that fits the size of the
food being prepared. The broiler pan and grill, accompanying the oven, can be used in most cases. No basting is
required when the fat side is up. Do not add water to the
pan. It will cause a steamed effect. Roasting is a dry heat
process.
Broil
Uses a top heat source. It is best for broiling smaller
amounts of food.
1
Poultry should be placed breast side up on a rack in a
shallow pan that fits the size of the food. Again, the
broiler pan and grill accompanying the oven can be used.
Brush poultry with melted butter, margarine or oil before
and during roasting.
2
Convection Broil
This mode uses a combination of the convection fan and
a top heat source. It is best for items that do not
need
to
2
1
21
be flipped such as, thinner cuts of meat, fish and garlic
bread.
When using the roast mode, do not use pans with tall
sides. They interfere with the circulation of heated air over
the food.
Broiling Tips
If using a meat thermometer, insert the probe halfway
into the center of the thickest portion of the meat. For
poultry, insert the thermometer probe between the body
and leg into the thickest part of the inner thigh. To ensure
an accurate reading, the tip of the probe should not touch
bone, fat, or gristle. Check the meat temperature 2/3 of
the way through the recommended roasting time. After
reading the meat thermometer once, insert it ½ inch
further into the meat, then take a second reading. If the
second temperature registers below the first, continue
cooking the meat.
• It is normal and necessary for some smoke to be
present to give the food a broiled flavor.
• Setting the timer is recommended to time the broiling
process.
• Always use a broiler pan and grill to provide drainage
for excess fat and grease. Doing so will reduce spatter, smoke and flare-ups.
• Start with a room temperature broiler pan for even
cooking.
• Use tongs or a spatula to turn and remove meats.
Never pierce meat with a fork because the natural
juices will escape.
Remove meats from the oven when the thermometer registers 5 to 10°F below the desired temperature. The meat
will continue to carry-over.
• Broil food on the first side for a little more than half of
the recommended time, then season and turn. Season
the second side just before removing the food from
the oven.
Allow roasts to stand 15 to 20 minutes after roasting in
order to make carving easier.
Roasting times always vary according to the size, shape
and quality of meats and poultry. Less tender cuts of meat
are best prepared in Bake mode and may require moist
cooking techniques. Use your favorite cookbook recipes.
• To prevent sticking, lightly grease the broiler grill.
Excess grease will result in heavy smoke. For easier
cleaning, remove the broiler pan and grill when
removing the food.
Reduce spatter by lining the bottom of the roasting pan
with lightly crushed aluminum foil.

Using the Meat Probe
4. Allow the oven to preheat.
5. Once the oven has preheated, put the meat in the
oven using pot holders. Plug the meat probe into the
connector inside the oven.
When you cook foods like roasts and poultry, the internal
temperature is the best way to tell when the food is properly cooked. Your oven’s meat probe is an easy way to
take the guesswork out of roasting. You can use it to cook
food to the exact temperature you desire. The probe can
be set from 100°F to 200°F.
6. Push the PROBE key. The preset probe temperature
(160°F), as well at the probe symbol, will
appear on the display. If you want to cook
using a different probe temperature, enter
it on the keypad. Use the USDA Minimum
Safe Cooking Temperature Chart as a guideline for
the type of meat you are cooking.
7. Press START. If you do not press START, the probe
1

To avoid the possibility of burns, use hot pads to handle,
connect, and unplug the meat probe when the oven is hot.
Use the handles to insert and remove the meat probe’s
skewer and to connect it to the oven. Pushing or pulling
on either end of the cable could damage the meat probe.
To avoid breaking the meat probe, make sure the food is
completely defrosted before inserting the skewer.
To prevent damage, never leave the meat probe inside
the oven when it is not being used, especially during the
self-clean cycle.
Using a meat probe other than the one provided with your
oven may result in damage to the probe and/or the oven.
When the meat is done, the oven will go into hold mode.
The temperature will reduce to 150°F for two hours to
keep the meat warm and safe for serving. To prevent sickness, do not allow foods to remain in the oven after it has
turned off. Press CANCEL · SECURE to cancel hold mode
and turn the oven completely off.

Operating Your Oven
Dehydrating/Defrosting
When you dehydrate:
1. Wash and remove excess moisture from all fruits and
vegetables before dehydrating.
Your oven can be used to dehydrate or defrost foods at
low heat settings in the Pure Convection mode.
2. Cut fruits and vegetables into uniform pieces.
warning
3. You can add honey, spices, lime juice, or orange juice
to give the fruit a different flavor.
To avoid food poisoning, cook meats immediately after defrosting
them.
4. It is best to dehydrate on a baking rack with a pan
underneath to catch any juices. If the fruit is small,
use cheesecloth over the rack. If you use a rack, it
will allow for maximum air circulation around the fruit.
The cheesecloth will prevent the fruit from sticking to
the rack.
To dehydrate or defrost foods:
1. Adjust the racks to the appropriate level.
2. Place the food on the center of the oven rack. (If you
are dehydrating, prepare food as recommended, then
place it on a drying rack.)
5. Place the food onto the center of the oven rack.
Solving Discoloration Problems:
3. Press the PURE CONV key.
• To prevent darkening during dehydration and storage,
you should steam blanch apples, apricots, peaches,
nectarines, pears or foods that will oxidize.
4. To defrost meats, enter the temperature up to 150°F
on the keypad. To dehydrate, start by setting the
temperature according to the table below. When
dehydrating, you may need to experiment with higher
temperatures.
To steam blanch:
1. Add 1 inch of water to a 4 quart sauce pot. Insert the
steam basket and place the fruit in it.
5. Press START.
Food Type
Dehydrating Temperature
Fruit
100°F
Vegetables
125°F
Meat

2. Cover the pot and steam for 1 to 2 minutes.
3. Remove with a slotted spoon and dab with a paper
towel to remove excess moisture before dehydrating.
Dacor recommends that you use one of the timers to time
the process.
Apples, pears, pineapples and some other fruits will brown
or darken during dehydration. To prevent discoloration,
dip fruits in pineapple juice or lemon juice after steam
blanching.
Dehydrating Tips
Creating a Candied Effect
To give the fruit a candied effect and to help retain color,
blanch them in a simple syrup. You can candy the fruits
mentioned above as well as figs and plums. The basic
ratio for a simple syrup is 1 cup of sugar to 1 cup of
water. Add these ingredients to a 4 quart stock pot and
bring to a boil. Stir until all the sugar dissolves. Remove
the saucepan from the cooktop and allow it to cool. Dip
fruit into the simple syrup after it has cooled.
Equipment Recommended:
• Half sheet pan or jelly roll pan with ½” rim all the way
around
• Baking rack that fits inside the half sheet pan
• Cheesecloth
• 4 quart sauce pot with lid
• Steamer basket that fits inside 4 quart saucepan. One
that is perforated and opens up will work well.
• Slotted spoon
• Paper towels
• A sharp knife

Proofing
Preventing Tough Skins when Dehydrating
You can use your oven to proof yeasted doughs at a low a
and draft-free temperature using the Bake mode.
You should water blanch items with tough skins such as
grapes, prunes, dark plums, cherries, figs and some types
of berries. Water blanching these types of fruit will crack
the skins so that moisture can escape and dehydration
can be done more effectively.
1. Press the BAKE key*.
2. Enter the temperature of 100°F on the keypad.
3. Press START.
4. Place the dough in a greased bowl inside of the oven.
Cover it with either a damp cloth or plastic wrap
coated with a nonstick spray.
To water blanch:
1. Bring 2 quarts of water to boil in a 4 quart sauce pot.
2. Drop the fruit in the water for 1 to 2 minutes, or until
the skin begins to crack.
5. Turn on the oven lights.
3. Remove the fruit with a slotted spoon and dab dry
with a paper towel before dehydrating. The pit can be
left inside or removed half way through the dehydrating process.
* Some double oven models have a PROOF key for the
lower oven. If your oven is equipped with the PROOF
key, you may press it instead of the BAKE key. When the
using the PROOF key, the oven presets the temperature.
Defrosting Tips
Sabbath Mode
6. Set the timer for the amount of rise time in the recipe.
• Food that takes an exceptional amount of time to
defrost will not defrost well in a convection oven.
The Sabbath mode on your oven complies with Jewish
laws for use on the Sabbath and Holy Days. This feature
allows the oven to perform two types of cooking, Bake
and Pure Convection. The settings the oven will run during
the Sabbath or Holy Day can be set in advance using the
delay time cooking feature.
• You should not defrost anything that would normally
take over 2 hours to thaw. The food will begin to spoil
because the defrost temperature is not high enough
to cook the food.
• If you have a partially defrosted turkey, rib roast or
other large cut of meat, you may continue to defrost it
in your convection oven. If wing tips and legs begin to
dry out when you defrost poultry, you may wrap the
tips with aluminum foil.
When the oven is set to Sabbath modes, it disables the
following features:
• The oven lights
• All keys, except CANCEL · SECURE and the 0 and 2
keys on the number keypad
• If you are defrosting a small cut of meat, lay it on a
flat cookie sheet with a 1-inch rim to catch juices as
the meat thaws.
note
• Thick, frozen casseroles such as lasagna will not
defrost well in your oven. Instead, defrost according to the food manufacturer’s suggestions. You can
defrost casseroles in the refrigerator overnight. You
should leave the food in its original container and
keep it covered.
•
•
•
• You can bake some foods from frozen. Some examples are: pizza, frozen pastries, croissants, cookies,
etc. Before baking frozen food, allow the oven to
preheat.
•
•
“SAb” appears on the display when Sabbath mode is in
operation.
If one or both timers are running, the oven cancels timer
operation when Sabbath mode is selected.
Sabbath mode will not work with the meat probe connected
(the meat probe symbol will flash.)
In the event of a power outage, the oven will return to
Sabbath mode when power is restored.
You may want to use a rack thermometer to keep track of
the oven temperature.
Setting Up the Sabbath Feature
1. Press the # key then the BAKE or PURE CONV key.
2. Press the 0 or 2 keys to pre-select the cooking temperature.
3. Press the START key. The oven will go into Sabbath

Adjusting the Oven Temperature
Things to Know about the Sabbath Mode
• The CANCEL · SECURE key on your oven remains
active so that you can turn off the Sabbath feature or
turn off the oven. On double ovens, both CANCEL ·
SECURE keys remain active so you can turn off one
oven and leave the other oven running.
Your oven is equipped with a feature that allows you to
calibrate the temperature inside the oven to match the
display value without the help of a service technician. Due
to various conditions, the actual temperature inside may
vary somewhat from the displayed temperature. The setting may also vary from mode to mode.
• On double ovens, you may repeat steps 2 - 4 to start
the other oven. Some double ovens are equipped for
Pure Convection on only one oven.
To change the offset temperature:
1. Place an oven thermometer inside the oven.
• When the oven is cooking, pressing the 2 key on
the number keypad tells the oven to raise the temperature by 25°F (15°C). Pressing the 0 key on the
number keypad tells the oven to lower the temperature by 25°F (15°C). In compliance with Jewish law,
the bake elements will be adjusted randomly when
these keys are pressed and no changes will be seen
on the display. On double ovens, you must press the
BAKE or PURE CONV key for the oven on which you
want the temperature changed before pressing the 0
or 2 key.
2. Check the temperature variance by running the oven
for one hour in each mode at 350°F (except broil
mode). In broil the normal operating temperature is
555°F. Take note of the temperature variance in each
mode.
3. With the oven off, press and hold the 0 and # keys on
the number keypad at the same time. The oven will
beep and “PASS” will appear on the display.
4. Enter 6428 on the number keypad, then START.
5. Press the cooking mode key for which you want to
change the offset.
6. Enter an offset temperature value from 1 to 35°F (1
to 18 for ovens set to Celsius). Press the # key if you
want the offset to be a negative (-) value.
7. Press START.
8. Repeat the steps above for any other cooking modes
you need to offset.
9. Press CANCEL to exit offset mode.
Cooking Tips
Food Placement
• Typically, when baking on two racks, use rack positions #2 and #4 or #1 and #3. When baking on three
racks, use rack positions #1, #3 and #5.
• Turn pans on the racks so that the long sides run left
to right, as you face them.

• Heavier roasting pans and dishes will cook better on
rack position #1.
• When using a baking stone, use rack position #1 for
best results.
• If you put a baking stone on the GlideRack oven rack,
instead of one of the standard oven racks, you can
pull the stone out of the oven further, making pizza
easier to remove.

Due to the lower atmospheric pressure at higher altitudes, foods tend to take longer to cook. Therefore, recipe
adjustments should be made in some cases. In general,
no recipe adjustment is necessary for yeast-risen baked
goods, although allowing the dough or batter to rise twice
before the final pan rising develops a better flavor. Try
making the adjustments below for successful recipes. Take
note of the changes that work best and mark your recipes accordingly. You may also consult a cookbook on high
altitude cooking for specific recommendations.
• They heat unevenly and will not give good baking
results. Use medium gauge aluminum sheets with
low sides when preparing cookies, biscuits and cream
puffs. Dacor cookie sheets, with their low profiles, will
give you the best results.
• Bake most frozen foods in their original foil containers, placed flat on a cookie sheet. Follow the package
recommendations.
• When using glass bake ware, reduce the recipe temperature by 25°F, except when baking pies or yeast
breads. Follow the standard recipe baking time for
pies and yeast breads.
• Use the pan size and type recommended by the recipe
for best results.
• For roasting, Dacor’s optional “V” shaped rack and
broil/roast pan works best to allow air circulation
around the food.

Care and Cleaning
How to Use the Self-Clean Feature
warning

•
•
•
important
Clean only the parts of the oven listed in this manual. Clean
them only in the manner specified.
To avoid dangerous fumes or damage to your oven’s
surfaces and accessories, use only the types of cleaning
solutions specified in this manual.
To avoid burns, turn off the oven(s) and make sure that all
parts are cool before cleaning.
To prevent damage, do not use abrasive or corrosive
cleaners or applicators such as steel wool or scouring pads,
on any part of the oven unless instructed to do so. Use
only a sponge, soft cloth, fibrous or plastic brush or nylon
cleaning pad for cleaning the surfaces of your oven.
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean the oven. Steam could
penetrate the electrical components and cause a short
circuit.
Do not try to remove heavy spills with a sharp object such
as a knife or metal spatula. Sharp objects may scratch your
oven’s surfaces.
On double ovens, the control panel will only allow one oven
chamber to be self-cleaned at a time due to the amount of power
consumed. Also, the double oven’s computer will not allow you to
cook in one oven while the other is in self-clean mode.
1. Before self-cleaning the oven, remove the racks, the
convection filter, all cookware (pots, pans, forks, etc.),
the meat probe, foil and any other loose objects from
the oven chamber. See page 25 for filter cleaning
instructions.
2. Clean soil from the porcelain surfaces of the door
outside of the door gasket. Rinse surfaces well with
a solution of vinegar and water, then wipe dry. Heavily soiled areas may be cleaned with a non-scratching
scouring pad.
3. Clean the door gasket by dabbing it with a solution of
water and mild soap.
Your Oven’s Self-Clean Feature
CAUTION
•
About the Self-Clean Cycle
• The oven will run better and produce better baked
goods when it is clean. During self-cleaning, the
oven is heated to very high temperatures which burn
off any deposits on the surfaces of the oven. Selfcleaning eliminates the need for manual scrubbing of
interior surfaces. The self-clean process takes about 2
to 4 hours.
•
4. Turn on kitchen fans or vents to help remove odors
during the Self-Clean cycle.
5. Make sure the oven door is shut.
6. Press the SELF CLEAN key.
• It is normal for the oven to emit smoke during the
first few self-clean cycles. It is also normal for the
oven to emit popping sounds during self-cleaning.
These sounds are caused by the expansion and contraction of metal surfaces when the oven heats up and
cools down.
7. Press the DURATION key, then the 2, 3 or 4 key to
select the number of hours of self-clean time (2-light,
3-medium and 4-heavy). Longer self-clean times are
for cleaning a heavier build up of grease and grime.
8. Press the START key (located on the far left of the
control panel.)
• Self-Clean mode will not function if the meat probe is
connected.
The control panel automatically locks the oven door
during self-cleaning. The latch prevents the door from
being opened since the high interior oven temperatures
can easily cause injury. If the door is not shut, an error
message will appear on the display. To correct the problem, press CANCEL · SECURE and wait approximately
one minute, then close the door. When the door is properly closed, start the Self-Clean process again.
warning
•
•
•
Take extreme caution when cleaning the door gasket.
Rubbing or displacing it may damage the tight door seal
required for proper cooking and self-cleaning.
Do not try to force the door open after it is locked. Damage
to the door or latch may result.
Always wipe up excess grease and other food spills with
a damp cloth prior to using the self-clean cycle. Doing so
will minimize smoke and increase efficiency. See proper
cleaning instructions on this page.
Do not touch the outside surfaces of the oven during the
self-clean cycle. They will be hot.
Items left in the oven during self-cleaning will become
damaged or damage the oven. See page 25 for directions
on polishing a rack that is left in the oven during
self-cleaning.
The display shows the Self-Clean cycle status:
• The clean symbol indicates that self clean is
in process.
• The lock symbol indicates that the door is
latched.
• “ON” indicates that the heating elements are
on.

7. Press START.
8. When you press START, “DELAY” will appear on the
display and the oven door will lock. The oven will start
to self-clean at the time you have selected.
NOTE
•
•
The oven lights do not operate while the oven is in self-clean
mode to protect them from damage.
Self-clean will not work with the meat probe connected (the
meat probe symbol will flash.)
When the Oven is Set to Clean at a Later
Time...
• If you want to view the time, push the CLOCK key.
If you want to stop the self-clean cycle, press the
CANCEL · SECURE key. Keep in mind that the oven door
will remain locked until it is safe enough to open. The lock
symbol will disappear from the display when the door lock
is released. You will still need to exercise caution when
the door lock is released because the inside of the oven
may still be hot.
• If the clock is displayed, you can push START TIME
to check when the self-clean cycle will start.
• When the self-clean cycle starts, “DELAY” will disappear and “ON” will appear on the display.
To cancel the time delayed self-clean cycle:
• Press CANCEL/SECURE.
After the Self-Clean Cycle is Complete:
• If the self-clean process has not started, allow about
a minute for the door to unlock before attempting to
use the oven.
• The door latch will release when the inside has cooled
down. The clean icon, lock icon and “ON“ will disappear from the display. Exercise caution because the
oven will still be hot (about 400°F) at the time the
door lock is released.
• If the oven is in the middle of the self-clean process, the door will unlock when the oven has cooled
down enough to open safely. The oven will still be hot
(about 400 °F.)
• Reinstall the convection filter and oven racks before
using your oven.
Cleaning the Exterior
• You may notice a powder ash residue in the bottom of
the oven after self-cleaning. This condition is normal.
Use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe up the residue
after the oven cools down.
Control Panel
warning
Self-Cleaning Tips
Do not use abrasive cleaners or scrubbers on the control panel.
They will permanently damage the finish.
• If any soil remains in the oven after the self-clean
cycle is done, you may repeat the cycle if you want.
To avoid accidentally turning the oven on while cleaning
the control panel, activate the lock-out feature. Press the
CANCEL · SECURE key for six seconds. The lock-out feature disables the keys. When the control panel is locked,
the word “OFF” appears on the display.
• Self-clean the oven regularly to prevent excessive soil
build-up. Doing so will make the self-clean cycle work
better and reduce smoke and odors.
Setting the Oven to Self-Clean at
a Later Time
When you want to re-activate the control panel, press
CANCEL · SECURE for six seconds.
Clean the control panel with the soft side of a sponge
dampened with a mild solution of detergent and warm
water. Dry the control panel completely with a soft, lintfree cloth.
To set the oven to self-clean at a later time:
1. Prepare the oven for self-cleaning as instructed on
page 23. Observe all safety precautions and remove
all items listed from inside the oven. Clean the door
gasket and around the door as instructed.
2. Close the oven door.
3. Press the SELF CLEAN key.
4. Press the 2, 3 or 4 key to select the desired self-clean
time.
5. Press the START TIME key.
6. Enter the desired start time. For example, press
1-2-3-0 for 12:30. You may enter a time up to 22
hours and 59 minutes ahead of the present time.

Care and Cleaning
Stainless Steel Surfaces
To clean the filter:
Soak it in hot, soapy water. Rinse well. You may also place
it in a dishwasher on the top rack. Dry the filter before
re-installing it.
caution
Always wipe stainless steel (silver colored) surfaces with the
grain. To prevent scratching, do not use abrasive cleaners or
scrubbers on stainless steel surfaces.
Installing your oven’s convection filter:
Carefully hook the metal clips on the back of the filter
over the metal bar across the fan hole. Make sure it is
centered over the hole. Be careful not to scratch the porcelain surfaces with the back of the filter.
Using a soft cloth, clean metal surfaces with a mild solution of detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry with a
soft, lint-free cloth.
Glass (Interior and Exterior)
Use a mild glass cleaner to remove finger prints on glass
surfaces. You can also clean glass surfaces with Dacor
Cooktop Cleaning Creme. Use it according to the directions on the package.
You may scrub the oven light lens with the rough side of a
sponge and warm, soapy water. Be careful not to scratch
the lens.
Cleaning the Interior
Clips
Convection Filter
warning
Door Gasket (Seal)
For your safety and proper oven performance, re-install the filter
before using the oven to cook. If you don’t, the spinning fan
blades at the back of the oven will be exposed.
warning
The convection filter is located in the back of each oven
chamber. Clean the filter regularly. If you allow it to
become clogged, the oven’s convection cooking modes
will not work properly. You also need to remove the filter
during the self-clean cycle.
Take extreme caution when cleaning the door gasket.
Rubbing or displacing it may damage the tight door seal
required for proper cooking and self-cleaning.
Removing your oven’s convection filter:
Clean the door gasket by dabbing it with a solution of
water and mild soap. Do not scrub it or it will become
damaged.
When the oven is cool, put your fingers around the edges
of the filter and gently push up.
Oven Racks
CAUTION
To prevent damage, do not self-clean the oven racks.
To clean the oven racks, apply a solution of detergent
and hot water. When you need to clean heavy soil, use a
scouring pad such as steel wool with plenty of water. You
may also use a solution of one cup of ammonia to 2 gallons of water.
If you accidentally leave the racks in the oven during
self-cleaning, you can polish them to make them easier to
slide. Polish the rack edges with a soapy steel wool pad.
Then apply a small amount of vegetable oil to the edges
so that the racks slide more easily. Be aware that polishing will not completely remove the discoloration.
25
Care and Cleaning
Meat Probe
Optional Baking Stone
Wash the optional baking stone with hot water and scrub
it clean before you use it for the first time. Do not use
any soap or detergents to wash the stone. The stone is
porous and soap will get trapped inside. The trapped soap
will affect the flavor of the food cooked on it. Don’t be
alarmed if the stone gets stains on it after it is used for
a while. Stains do not affect the stone’s ability to bake
properly.
warning
To prevent damage, do not immerse the meat probe in
water.
The meat probe is constructed of silicone handles, a wire,
a plug and a stainless steel skewer. To clean the skewer,
use a scouring pad and hot, soapy water. When you clean
the handles, wipe them with a soft sponge soaked with a
solution of detergent and warm water.
When you need to remove large food particles from the
baking stone, use warm water and a scrub brush. If there
is a lot of oil build-up, it may smoke and create odors. If
you need to remove the oily build up, use a scouring pad
or brush to remove it. You may also use a paste of baking
soda and water to scrub off small stains.
Optional Cookie Sheets
Clean the optional aluminum cookie sheets with a solution of detergent and warm water. Since aluminum can
scratch, you need to use the soft side of a sponge. A way
for you to keep cookie sheets cleaner is to use parchment
paper over the cooking surface during baking. The parchment paper will also prevent food from sticking.
Broil Pan
Your broil pan has a porcelain enamel finish. When you
clean it, use a solution of detergent and hot water. If your
broil pan is heavily soiled, use a scouring pad with plenty
of water. Rinse it well after cleaning.
Optional Roast/Broil Pan with “V” Shaped
Rack
Your roast/broil pan has a porcelain enamel finish. When
you clean it, use a solution of detergent and hot water. If
your roast/broil pan is heavily soiled, use a scouring pad
and plenty of water. Rinse it well after cleaning.
The optional “V” shaped rack is finished with an Excalibur
nonstick coating. When you clean it, use a mild solution of
detergent and warm water. Use the soft side of a sponge
to scrub it and dry it with a lint-free cloth.

Care and Cleaning
Replacing the Light Bulbs
warning
•
•
•
•
important
To prevent electrical shock and/or personal injury, make
certain that the oven and light bulb(s) are cool and that
power to the oven has been turned off at the main power
supply before replacing the light bulb(s).
Always make sure the lens covers are in place when using
the oven(s). The lens covers protect the light bulbs from
breakage caused by high oven temperatures or mechanical
shock.
Use the pry stick with caution. Do not cause uneven stress
on the lens cover.
Replacing the lens cover without lining up the cut-out with
the light socket will damage the light fixture.
Do not touch the replacement halogen light bulbs with
your fingers. Halogen bulbs are sensitive to the oils
from your hand. The oils from your hand will stick to
the bulb and cause it to burn out faster than normal.
4. When reinstalling the lens, line up the cut-out on the
inside rim with the light socket. Gently press it into its
original position.
Light
bulb
Light bulb replacement is considered to be a homeowner
maintenance operation. If the lights do not work, before
replacing them, please consult the Problem Solution
Guide on page 29.
