Purpose of This Manual
This Use & Care Manual is designed to enable
you to properly operate and maintain your new
range. Please keep this manual handy for easy
access and quick reference.
Additional information may be requested by
e-mailing, writing or phoning the DACOR
Customer Service Department. The address
and phone number of this department are listed
on the inside front cover of this manual.
What to Do
1.
12. Select utensils of the proper size, material,
and construction for the particular type of
cooking being done. Select utensils that
are large enough to contain the desired
quantity of food without boil-overs or spillovers. Choose pans with easy to hold
handles that will stay cool while cooking.
Do not use utensils with loose handles.
Avoid using pans that are too heavy to lift
safely. Use cookware only for its intended
purpose. Certain types of glass, ceramic,
and earthenware utensils are suitable for
use only in an oven and not in cooktop
applications.
13. When cooking, set the burner controls so
that the flame heats only the bottom of the
utensil and does not lick at the sides of the
utensil.
14. When deep fat frying, be certain that the
pan is large enough to contain the desired
volume of food without overflow caused by
bubbling of the fat. Never leave a deep fat
fryer unattended. Avoid deep fat frying of
moist or frost-covered foods, as foods with
high water content may cause spattering or
spilling of the hot fat. Heat fat slowly, and
stir together any combinations of oils and
fats prior to applying heat. Utilize a deep
fat frying thermometer to avoid heating the
fat to temperatures above the flash point.
15. Always turn pan handles to the side or
back of the range. Do not turn handles
towards the room where they are easily hit.
Handles should not extend over adjacent
burners.
16. Always check the positions of the control
knobs to make sure the cooktop is off when
you are finished cooking.
17. Before performing any service, turn off the
gas supply by closing the gas shut-off valve
and turning off electrical power supply.
18. Always light each burner prior to placing a
utensil on the burner grate. Also, turn the
control knob to the “off” position before
removing a utensil from the burner grate.
19. Always clean the cooktop cautiously. If
using a damp sponge or cloth, wait until
the cooktop has cooled sufficiently to
prevent steam burns. Also, some cleaners
can produce harmful or unpleasant fumes if
applied to hot surfaces.
20. Keep any ventilation filters clean to avoid
grease fires.
Begin by ensuring proper installation and
grounding of the appliance by a qualified
technician according to the accompanying
Installation Instructions. Have the installer
show you where the fuse or junction box
and gas valve are located so that you
know how and where to turn off the utilities.
If you smell gas, do not use the range.

21. Always set utensils gently onto the grates
and center them so that they are wellbalanced.
22. Always keep the cooktop surface clean and
dry.
What Not to Do
WARNING:
NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages
in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack
with materials such as aluminum foil. Doing
so blocks air flow through the oven and
may cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
Aluminum foil linings may also trap heat,
causing a fire hazard.
WARNING:
NEVER use this appliance as a space heater
to heat or warm the room. Doing so may
result in carbon monoxide poisoning and
overheating of the appliance.
1.
Do not leave children alone or unattended
in the area where the range is in use.
Never allow children to sit or stand on any
part of the oven. Do not let children play
with the range.
2. Do not store items of interest to children
above the range. Children could be burned
or injured while climbing on the appliance.
3. Do not wear loose or hanging apparel while
using the range.
4. Do not store combustible, flammable or
explosive materials in the range or in
adjacent cabinets.
5. CAUTION: DO NOT LEAVE FOOD OR
COOKING UTENSILS, ETC., IN THE
OVEN DURING THE SELF-CLEAN
CYCLE.
6. Do not repair or replace any part of the
range unless specifically recommended
in literature accompanying this appliance.
All other service should be referred to a
qualified technician.
7. Do not use water on grease fires. A violent
steam explosion may result. Smother any
flames with a lid, cookie sheet or flat tray.
Flaming grease can be extinguished with
baking soda or foam extinguisher.
8. Do not allow potholders to touch hot
surfaces or gas burners. Do not use towels
or bulky cloth as potholders.
9. Do not use commercial oven cleaners or
oven liner protective coatings on any part
of the oven.
10. Do not clean the door gasket, because
rubbing, moving or in any way damaging
the gasket, may eliminate the required tight
door seal.
11. DO NOT TOUCH INTERIOR SURFACES
OF THE OVEN. During and after use, do
not touch or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact heating elements or
interior surfaces of the oven until they have
had sufficient time to cool.
12. Do not block or obstruct the holes below
the control knobs. Blocking these holes
may affect burner operation and may result
in a hazard.
13. When using the cooktop, do not touch the
grates, burner caps, burner bases, or any
other parts in proximity to the flame. These
components may be hot enough to cause
burns.
14. If the cooktop is near a window, do not use
long curtains as a window treatment. The
curtains could blow over the cooktop and
create a fire hazard.
15. Do not cover the burners and grates with
anything except properly selected utensils.
Decorative covers should not be used.
16. 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.
17. Do not use abrasive or caustic cleaners
or detergents on this appliance. They may
cause permanent damage. Do not use
aerosol cleaners. They may be flammable
or cause corrosion of metal parts.
18. Do not use or attempt to use this appliance
in the event of a power failure.
19. Do not touch the oven exhaust cover on
the cooktop when the oven is in use.
20. Do not slide cookware across the grates.
Sliding may damage the finish of the
grates. Lift utensils to reposition them.
21. Do not allow acids (citrus juices, tomato
sauces, etc.) to remain on the oven cell
surfaces. The porcelain finish may stain.
23. Do not touch the range top or backguard
with your bare hands during all cooking
and self cleaning modes. Venting from
the oven may cause the cooktop and
backguard to become hot.
Getting Started
Below the oven mode touch pads are three
touch pads labeled “CANCEL•SECURE,”
“LIGHT” and “COOK TIME”. The
“CANCEL•SECURE” touch pad enables the
user to cancel the selection of an oven mode
or Delay Timed program, or disable the control
panel by pressing and holding the pad for
approximately three (3) seconds. Once the
control panel is in the “SECURE” mode, “OFF”
will be displayed on the clock. The “LIGHT”
touch pad turns the interior oven light “on”
and “off.” The “LIGHT” touch pad will remain
functional if the control panel has been disabled.
The “COOK TIME” touch pad is used to select
the length of time for a cooking process in Delay
Timed cooking mode.
Clock functions are selected by pressing the
touch pads located below the clock display
and oven mode touch pads. Oven functions
are chosen by pressing the touch pad for the
desired mode. Once a clock or oven function
has been chosen, a description of the selection
will flash in the clock display area.
IMPORTANT:
After choosing a clock function or oven
mode, you have six seconds to perform the
next programming step. If the next step is
not completed within six (6) seconds, the
program selection displayed on the clock
will disappear. Should this occur, just repeat
the initial function selection
Before using your range, become familiar with
the features and control panel layout.

What is Pure Convection™?
Your new oven has the best cooking system
available today, “Pure Convection™”. Pure
Convection™ is a total system approach to
cooking. The heat source is a third element
outside the cooking cell behind a “baffle.” Not
only does the baffle separate the food from
the heat source, it channels the air from the
“Convection Fan” evenly into the cell eliminating
any hot or cool spots in the oven. This system is
what allows multi-rack cooking while achieving
even results from one rack to another.
The other component in Pure Convection™ is
the “Filter.” The filter eliminates the transference
of flavors when cooking entire meals and also
keeps the oven cleaner

STANDARD BAKE (Selected Models
Only) – In Standard Bake mode,
the bottom heat element provides
conventional baking heat. Temperatures
may be set from 135˚ to 555˚F in 5˚F
increments. Use Standard Bake for single
rack baking and roasting.
STANDARD BROIL – The Infrared
Ceramic Gas Broiler supplies the heat
in Broil mode. The high wattage, top
heating element supplies the heat in
Broil mode in the ERD48 left oven only.
The broil temperature is adjustable from
135˚F, to the “HI” setting (equivalent
to 555˚F) for greater cooking flexibility.
Broiling is performed with the door
closed.
CONVECTION BROIL (ERD48 left oven
only) – The high wattage, top heating
element supplies the heat in Broil mode
in combination with the convection fan
for better heat distribution. The broil
temperature is adjustable from 135˚F
to the “HI” setting (equivalent to 555˚F)
for greater cooking flexibility. Broiling is
performed with the door closed.
PURE CONVECTION™ (ERD models
only) – In Pure Convection™ mode a
third heating element, encircling the
convection fan located in the rear of the
oven chamber, acts as the heat source.
The convection fan draws air from the
oven chamber, then forces it across
the hot convection heating element.
The heated air is directed back into the
oven chamber through the convection
baffle. The baffle distributes the heated
air evenly to ensure uniform results.
Temperatures may be set from 135˚
to 555˚F in 5˚F increments. Use this
mode for single rack baking, multiple
rack baking, roasting, and preparation of
complete meals.
CONVECTION BAKE – In this
combination convection-radiant mode,
the lower element provides the heat.
As in Pure Convection™ mode, the
convection fan and baffle combine to
circulate heated air evenly throughout the
oven chamber. Temperatures may be set
from 135˚F to 555˚F in 5˚F increments.
Use this mode for single rack baking,
multiple rack baking and roasting.
SELF-CLEAN – In the pyrolytic SelfClean mode, the oven reaches extreme
high temperatures, thereby burning off
oven soil automatically. The Self-Clean
time is adjustable up to four hours so
that varying degrees of oven soil can
be successfully removed. Also, the SelfClean cycle can be delayed to start at a
later time if desired
Oven Racks and Supports
Oven Mode Selection
Follow these steps to operate the oven
modes:
1. Position oven rack(s) at the proper
height(s).
2. Press the touch pad for the modes of
your choice. The oven will beep once,
the selected cooking mode will flash, and
“– – –” will be displayed.
3. Press either the “+” or “–” pad. The default
temperature will be displayed.
4. To adjust the default temperature for
baking, press and hold the “TIME•TEMP”
pad. (Press “+” key to increase the
temperature setting, “–” to decrease.)
“PRE” and “ON” will appear in the
clock display, and the oven will begin
to heat. If in a convection mode, the
convection fan will turn on. Also, the
clock display will change from the desired
cooking temperature to the actual oven
temperature, starting with 135˚F. The
temperature display will increase in 5˚F
increments until the desired temperature is
reached. The cooling fan will turn on when
the oven temperature reaches 200˚F.
NOTE:
Do not place food inside the oven until the
Preheat cycle is complete.
When the desired temperature is attained, the
Preheat cycle is complete. The clock will beep
once and “PRE” and “ON” will disappear from
the display. (From this time forward, the “ON”
display will cycle on and off with the heating
elements.)
5.
6.
7.
Carefully place the food onto the desired
rack(s) within the preheated oven.
It is recommended that a Minute Timer be
set to time the cooking process.
When the time expires and/or the
food is done cooking, press the
“CANCEL•SECURE” pad to turn off the
oven.
Three chrome-plated oven racks are provided.
Always remember to position the racks prior to
heating the oven. Also, remove the oven racks
prior to self-cleaning to prevent permanent
discoloration of the racks
The porcelain rack supports provide five (5)
heights for positioning of the oven racks.

Preheating the Oven
The oven features an automatic Preheat cycle
that rapidly brings the oven chamber up to
temperature. Simply by choosing a cooking
mode and setting a temperature, the oven will
automatically perform the Preheat function. The
Preheat cycle operates in Standard Bake, Pure
Convection™ and Convection Bake modes.
There is no Preheat cycle for the Broil or
Convection Broil modes.
NOTE:
Allowing the oven to completely pre-heat
prior to placing food in the oven will avoid
excessive browning of the food. After the
oven signals that the pre-heat is complete,
allow 3-5 more minutes for the heat patterns
to normalize in the oven and then place your
food inside.
Minute Times
The clock features two timers that may be used
for time cooking or other processes up to 11
hours, 50 minutes in length.
To use the Minute Timer function, follow
these steps:
1. Press the touch pad labeled “TIMER 1”, or
“TIMER 2”. The clock will display “00:00”,
and “TIMER 1”, or “TIMER 2” will flash.
2. Press the “+” pad until the desired time is
displayed on the clock.
3. After “TIMER 1” has expired, the clock
will sound off with one second beeps and
“TIMER 1” will appear in the display. After
the “TIMER 2” minute timer has expired,
the clock will sound alternating one and
two second beeps and “TIMER 2” will
appear in the display. The beeper can be
silenced by pressing the “TIMER” touch
pad while the beeper is sounding.
IMPORTANT:
2.
Cancellation of the Minute Timer does not
turn off the oven if it is operating. You must
manually shut the oven off by pressing the
“CANCEL•SECURE” touch pad. (See the
Delay Timed Cooking section on page 7 for
automatic oven turn on and turn off.)
NOTES:
1.
To view the current time of day rather
than the remaining time on the Minute
Timer, just press the “CLOCK” touch
pad. To change back to a Minute Timer
display, press the “TIMER 1” or “TIMER
2” touch pad.
2. To cancel the Minute Timer while in
progress, press the “TIMER 1 or 2”
touch pad two times. The clock display
will return to the time of day.
3. The Minute Timers may be used at the
same time as Delay Timed Cooking or
Self-Clean.
4. The Minute Timers will beep for 2
minutes (if not cancelled) before
automatically shutting off.
5.Pressing the “CANCEL•SECURE”
pad when the beeper is sounding will
cancel both the beeper and the cooking
function.

Securing Controls
To avoid accidentally turning the oven on,
activate the “SECURE” feature. Press and hold
the “CANCEL•SECURE” pad for approximately
three seconds. This will disable the control
panel and allow cleaning the controls without
accidentally starting any functions. Three beeps
will sound and “OFF” will appear in the display
when the control panel has been secured.
To re-activate the control panel, again push
and hold the “CANCEL•SECURE” pad for three
seconds. Three beeps will sound and the “OFF”
will disappear from the display.
Baking
Your DACOR range offers two convection
baking modes: Pure Convection™ or
Convection Bake.
As a general rule, a convection mode
will allow preparation of most foods at
reduced temperatures for shorter periods
of time, while also producing superior
results. Typically you can reduce standard
temperature by 25˚F and cook for 10% less
time. Baked goods will have golden-brown
crusts with flaky textures, and meats will have
crispy exteriors with succulent juices sealed
inside.
1.
To convert Conventional Bake recipes to
our convection recipes, reduce temperature
by 25˚F and the cooking time by
approximately 10%.
8.
9.
Some recipes, especially those that are
homemade, may require adjustment and
testing when converting from standard
to convection modes. If unsure how to
convert a recipe, begin by preparing the
recipe in Bake mode. After achieving
acceptable results this way, follow the
Convection guidelines listed. If the food is
not prepared to your satisfaction during this
first Convection trial, adjust only 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
satisfactory results are achieved.
Do not open the oven door frequently
during baking. Look through the door
window to check the progress of baking
whenever possible.
Use the Minute Timers to time baking
functions.
Wait until the shortest recommended
baking time before checking food. For
baked goods, a wooden pick placed in the
center should come clean when the food is
done.
Measure ingredients carefully and follow
tested recipes for best baking results.
Bakeware Tips:
•
Use the pan size and type
recommended by the recipe to ensure
best results.
• Cakes, quick breads, muffins and
cookies should be baked in shiny,
reflective pans for light, golden crusts.
• Medium gauge aluminum sheets
with low sides should be used when
preparing cookies, biscuits and cream
puffs.
• Bake most frozen foods in their
original foil containers placed on a
flat cookie sheet. Follow the package
recommendations.
• When using glass bakeware, 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.
• Avoid the use of old, darkened pans.
• Warped, dented, stainless steel and
tin-coated pans heat unevenly and will
not give uniform baking results.
Tips for Pan Placement:
•
Place pans carefully on the oven
racks. Turn pans on the racks so that
the long sides run left to right, parallel
to the door.
Adjustments to recipe times and
temperatures will have to be made
when baking at high altitudes. Consult
a cookbook on high-altitude cooking or
contact the Home Economics Departments
at your state university for specific
recommendations.
Roasting
All baking modes can be used to successfully
roast in your oven. However, the Convection
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
a Convection mode, include: beef, pork, ham,
lamb, turkey, chicken, and cornish hens.

11. To convert conventional Bake recipes
to Convection recipes, reduce the
temperature by 25˚F and the cooking time
by approximately 10%.
Using a roasting rack, always roast meats
fat side up in a shallow pan. 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.
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.
For Convection roasting, do not use pans
with tall sides. They interfere with the
circulation of heated air over the food.
When 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 1/2 inch further into the meat, then
take a second reading. If the second temperature registers below
the first, continue cooking the meat.
Remove meats from the oven when the
thermometer registers 5˚ to 10˚F below the
desired temperature. The meat will con­tinue
to cook after removal.
Allow roasts to stand 15 to 20 minutes after
roasting in order to make carving easier.
If using a cooking bag, foil tent, or other
cover, use Bake Mode (ERDE models only)
or Convection Bake Mode (ERD models
only).
The recipe time and temperature will have
to be adjusted as well.
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 and may require moist
cooking techniques. Follow your favorite
cookbook recipes.
Reduce spatter by lining the bottom of the
roasting pan with lightly crushed aluminum
foil.
Multiple Rack Baking
The uniform air circulation provided by
Convection™ cooking enables the more oven
capacity to be utilized. Many foods, such
as pizzas, cakes, cookies, biscuits, muffins,
rolls and frozen convenience foods can be
successfully prepared on either two or three
racks at the same time. Additionally, complete
meals can be prepared by using multiple racks.
See below for specific recommendations.
Follow the steps in the Oven Modes section, to
manually operate the oven, or refer to the Delay
Timed Cooking section below for automatic
operation.
MULTIPLE RACK BAKING TIPS
1. Typically, when baking on two racks, rack
positions #1 and #4 or #2 and #4.
2. When adapting a single rack recipe to
multiple rack baking, it may be necessary
to add to the baking time. This is due to the
extra mass of food in the oven.
Oven GlideRack™
Helpful Hints When Using Your Oven
GlideRack™:
1. This rack works particularly well with
heavier items, although you can use it
during any baking, broiling or roasting in
your Dacor oven.
2. These racks will need to be spaced out
when using more than one in the oven at
a time. For instance, the racks should be
used on rack positions 1,3, & 5 or 2 & 4,
counting up from the bottom, instead of
using racks 2,3, & 4.
3. When using the rack with Dacor’s ABS20
baking stone, use rack position 1 for best
results.
4. Heavier roasting pans and dishes will also
cook better on Rack position 1.
5. Do not leave the rack in during self- clean.
The rack will become difficult to slide in
and out if it is self- cleaned. Remove all the
racks and the filter in the back of the oven
before self- cleaning..
6. To clean the rack, use hot, soapy water
and the rough side of a sponge.
Delay Timed Cooking
Dacor’s Oven GlideRack™ is designed to
install effortlessly and glide at a full extension.
Especially when using Dacor’s pizza stone
(model number ABS20), the full extension of the
rack allows you to slide the pizza on and off the
stone with great ease. It is also great for large
roasts in large roasting pans. This easy- slide
rack will allow you to baste more easily and
check temperatures of the food more safely and
quickly.
This function allows the user to start and finish
a cooking cycle automatically. It is especially
useful for preparing meals in advance, cooking
while you are at work or play. Delay Timed
Cooking can only be used with Standard Bake
(ERD model only), Convection Bake, or Pure
Convection modes. lt will not function in Broil
mode.
Proper Installation of the Easy slide Oven
Rack:
1. Fully extend the two side guides. Align two
small clips on the bottom at the rear of the
Oven GlideRack™ with the black porcelain
rack guides in the oven.
2. Begin to slide the rack in, then lift up. The
Oven GlideRack™ must be in between the
two clips on the upper and lower side of
the rack rear.
3. Push the rack all the way to the back.
4. Grasp the rack in the front center and pull.
The rack should come forward while the
side guides remain in place.
Food safety is an important consideration
when using delayed cooking modes. To
avoid potential sickness and spoiling of
food, take the following steps:
1. Avoid using foods that will spoil while
waiting for the cooking cycle to begin.
Typical foods to avoid include those
containing eggs and dairy products,
cream soups, and cooked or uncooked
meats, poultry and fish.
WARNING:
Oven

3.
If cooking will not begin immediately,
place only very cold or frozen food into
the oven. Most unfrozen foods should
never stand in the oven for more than
two hours before cooking begins.
Do not allow foods to remain in
the oven more than one hour after
completion of the cooking cycle. When
the temperature drops below 140˚F,
bacteria can develop.

Setting the Oven for Delay Timed Cooking
To use Delay Timed Cooking, follow these
steps:
1. Position oven rack(s) at the proper
height(s).
2. Place the food onto the center of the oven
rack(s).
3. Select the desired cooking mode and
temperature.
4. Press the “COOK TIME” pad and “TIME”
will appear in the clock display. Press the
“TIME•TEMP” “+” pad to set the length
of time that the food will be cooked. The
“COOK TIME” can be set from 5 minutes to
11 hours, 50 minutes.
5. The oven can be set to start now or later
in the day. To start cooking now, do not
perform any more programming steps. After
six seconds “PRE”, “ON” and “TIMED” will
appear in the clock display, and the oven
will begin heating. After the “COOK TIME”
has expired, the clock will beep three
times, and “Hold” will be displayed. The
cooling fan will continue to run, depending
upon the length and temperature of the
cooking process.
6. Press the “STOP TIME” touch pad, and
“STOP” will appear in the clock display.
Press the “TIME•TEMP” “+” pad to enter
the time of day that you wish the oven to
shut off. “DELAY” will now be displayed.
The oven will calculate the correct “START
TIME.” After the “COOK TIME” has expired,
the clock will beep three times, and “Hold”
will be displayed. If cooking in a convection
mode, the convection fan will also turn
off at this time. While in “Hold” mode, the
oven temperature will be maintained at
150˚F for a period of two hours. “Hold”
mode can be cancelled by pressing the
“CANCEL•SECURE” touch pad. The
cooling fan will continue to run depending
upon the length and temperature of the
cooking process.
DELAY TIMED COOKING TIPS
1. Do not use foods containing baking powder
or yeast in Delay Timed Cooking. These
foods will not rise properly.
2. Remember that “COOK TIME” refers to
the length of the cooking cycle. It does not
refer to the start time!
Oven GlideRack™
3.
The time required to preheat the oven must
be included in the “COOK TIME.” Thus,
the “COOK TIME” should be increased by
about 8 to 12 minutes depending upon the
temperature setting. The broiler does not
come on to preheat in the Delay Mode, so
you will not pre-maturely brown foods.
NOTE:
The gas broilers (ERD model only), or
Electrical Glass Broilers (ERDE model only),
are not activated for Pre-heat in the DelayTime cooking mode, so Pre-Heat times are
increased - but dishes will not pre-maturely
brown.
Dehydrating/Defrosting
The range can be used to dehydrate or
defrost foods at low heat settings in “Pure
Convection™” mode (ERD models only).
Follow these steps to dehydrate or defrost
foods:
1. Position oven rack(s) at the proper
height(s).
2. Place the food onto the center of the oven
rack. (For dehydrating, prepare food as
recommended then place food onto a
drying rack.)
3. Press the “PURE CONVECTION™” pad.
4. Set the temperature to 135˚F. This is the
minimum temperature that can be set. (For
dehydrating, a higher temperature setting
may be required. Follow the recommended
temperature for the type of food being
prepared.)
5. It is recommended that the user set the
Minute Timer(s) to time the process.
Broiling
Broiling is a quick and flavorful way to prepare
many foods, including steaks, chicken, chops,
hamburgers and fish. Broiling in the oven is
completed with the oven door completely
shut. It is normal and necessary for some
smoke to be present to give the food a broiled
flavor. The broil temp­erature may be adjusted in
5˚F increments from 135˚F up to the maximum
setting of “HI”. The “HI” setting is equivalent to
555˚F.

Selecting the Proper Cookware
Utensils will affect the overall safety and
performance of cooktop cooking, so it is
important to select them carefully. An improperly
selected utensil will not cook efficiently or
evenly. For best results, follow these guidelines:
1. Use medium to heavy-gauge metal
cookware with flat and smooth bottoms for
greatest efficiency.
2. Use utensils with tight fitting lids to retain
heat, odors, and steam.
Burner Controls
Indicators have been placed on the control
housing, next to each control knob, to clearly
identify the burner controlled by each knob.
To indicate whether the knob controls burners
on the left or right, the knobs are grouped
accordingly. The burner being controlled is
indicated by a blue indicator light, while the
adjacent burner is illustrated by a flame icon on
the control panel.
To light a particular burner, press in on the
corresponding control knob, then immediately
rotate the knob counterclockwise from the off
(ø) position to the “HIGH” position (larger flame
icon). All ignitors will spark continuously until
the gas ignites on the selected burner. Ignition
should occur within four seconds of turning to
this position. The ignitors will stop sparking as
soon as the burner ignites.

Once the burner is lit, reduce the flame
height by rotating the control knob further
counterclockwise, then place the utensil on the
grate. Progressively lower flame heights are
achieved as the knob is turned toward the small
flame icon (counterclockwise).
IMPORTANT:
1. If the gas does not ignite within four
seconds, then turn off the valve. Allow
at least five minutes for any gas to
dissipate, then repeat the lighting
procedure.
2. Burner ignitors must always be kept
clean and dry to function properly.
Due to the Perma-Flame re-ignition
feature, dirty or wet ignitors will result
in constant sparking, even if there is
a flame present. Additionally, ignitors
will spark automatically if the flame is
distorted by a draft or by a ventilation
system. Eliminate the draft or reduce
the ventilation blower speed in this
case.
3. Do not touch any burner cap, burner
base, or ignitor while the ignitors are
sparking. An electrical shock could
result.
4. When the cooktop is cool and/or more
than two burners are in use, the ignitors
may continue to spark if the control
knob is set to the “LOW” position. This
is normal until the burner warms up.
The tendency to spark under these
conditions can be reduced by operating
the burner at a higher flame setting
for a short period of time (normally
60 seconds or less), then adjusting
the control knob down to the “LOW”
setting. The burner will also warm up
faster if a utensil is placed on the grate.
5. The flame should be steady and blue in
color. Foreign material in the gas line,
especially in new construction, may
cause an orange flame during initial
operation. This will disappear with
further use.
6. The flame should burn evenly around
the perimeter of the burner, except
underneath each grate support finger,
where the flame height is reduced by
the Smart-Flame feature. If the flame is
uneven, ensure that the brass burner
ring and porcelain burner cap are
properly positioned, then check for any
foreign material in the burner ring or
on the burner cap. Remove any foreign
material with a straightened paper clip,
wire, or needle. Do not damage the
brass or distort the shape of the burner
ring ports.
7. Never light the burners with a match
or other open flame. If a burner does
not ignite, consult the Troubleshooting
section of this manual.
NOTE:
Setting the Burner Flame Heights
Epicure™ Range burners are all rated at a
maximum output of 15,000 BTU/HR.
All burners are sealed to the cooktop by gaskets
around the underside of the burner bases,
thereby preventing any liquid spills from getting
below the cooktop frame.
Setting the proper burner flame height for the
desired cooking process and selected utensil
will result in superior cooking performance,
while also saving time and energy. Follow these
recommendations for best results:
1. Use low or medium flame heights when
cooking in utensils that are poor conductors
of heat, such as glass, ceramic, and cast
iron cooking vessels. Reduce the flame
height until it covers approximately 1/3 of
the utensil diameter. This will ensure even
heating within the utensil and reduce the
likelihood of burning or scorching of food.
2. Reduce the flame if it is extending beyond
the bottom of the utensil. A flame that licks
along the sides of the utensil is potentially
dangerous.
3. Reduce the flame height, to the minimum
level necessary, to perform the desired
cooking process. Remember that food
cooks just as quickly at a gentle boil as it
does at a vigorous, rolling boil. Maintaining
a higher boil than is necessary wastes
energy, cooks away moisture, and causes
a loss in food flavor and nutrient level.
IMPORTANT:
Non-stick coatings if used at high
temperatures can be harmful to birds. Avoid
keeping pets (birds) in your kitchen during
cooking.

WARNING:
Cleaning Tips
Using the Simmer Plate
1.
Before cleaning the cooktop, ensure
that all burners are turned off and that
all components are cool enough to
safely touch.
After cleaning, reassemble all
components before attempting to
operate the cooktop.
Proper cleaning is necessary to maintain
cooktop performance and appearance, while
also ensuring safe operation. The cleaning
effort necessary to maintain the cooktop varies
according to the type and amount of cooking.
For example, more frequent cleaning is required
if the cooktop is used often for frying or other
high temperature operations.
Clean the cooktop thoroughly prior to operating
it the first time. For initial and everyday cleaning,
use a soft cloth or sponge lightly dampened with
a solution of warm water and hand dishwashing
liquid to clean all components.
5.
To keep the cooktop looking its best,
clean it after every use as soon as all
components are cool enough to safely
touch. Also, quickly wipe up spills that
occur while cooking, being careful
not to touch any hot areas. Spills that
remain on hot burner components will
be very difficult to clean, especially if
allowed to burn on. Spills of certain
foods, such as tomatoes, citrus
juices, vinegar, alcohol, and milk, are
very harmful if allowed to stand for
any length of time. Therefore, save
time while also maintaining a new
appearance by cleaning regularly and
shortly after spills occur.
Use the mildest cleaner or procedure
available to perform the cleaning
operation.
Use only a sponge, soft cloth, fibrous
or plastic brush, and nylon pad for
cleaning. Avoid the use of abrasive
cleaners such as steel wool.
Always dry components completely
before using the cooktop.
The use of brand names is intended
only to indicate a type of cleaning
agent or cleaning implement. All
products listed by name must be used
in accordance with the manufacturer’s
recommendations. Use of a brand name
does not constitute an endorsement,
nor does omission of a particular brand
imply that a product is inferior.
Recommendations for cleaning specific cooktop
components are summarized below:
IMPORTANT:
The grates, burner caps, and spill-over
areas on the cooktop, unlike other porcelain
enamel appliances in your home, are
exposed to extremely high temperatures
in a matter of seconds. In addition to
this extreme thermal shock, the grates
are subjected to mechanical shock when
utensils are placed on or slid across them.
Finally, spillovers introduce foods with high
acidity to all of the porcelain components.
Due to these severe operating conditions,
all porcelain enamel components on the
cooktop will undergo an inevitable change
in appearance with use. Meticulous care
and cleaning will slow but not eliminate this
natural and expected aging process.
Treating the porcelain components with care will
slow the natural deterioration that takes place
with cooktop use. Please follow these guidelines
to keep the porcelain parts looking their best:
1. Do not use utensils having rough bottoms,
as this can result in permanent damage
to the top surfaces of the porcelainized
grates.
2. Do not drop utensils onto the grates or
drag heavy pots across the tops of the
grates.
3.
4.
Set the grates into the locating dimples
gently. Do not drop the grates into place.
Use caution when cooking to avoid spills
as much as possible. Porcelain is acidresistant but not acid-proof, so some foods
can cause permanent damage if allowed to
remain on porcelain surfaces.
Daily cleaning of the grates and burner caps is
best accomplished with a soft cloth or sponge
dampened in a solution of warm water and hand
dishwashing liquid. Grates and burner caps
should not be cleaned in the dishwasher.
Stubborn stains may be removed by applying
full-strength sprays such as Simple Green, Ajax
All-Purpose Cleaner, Formula 409, or Scotch
Guard. Metal polishing compounds such as
Luneta or Flitz may also be used. (If you are
unable to locate these cleaning compounds,
please phone the DACOR Customer Service
Department for a referral.)
Mildly abrasive cleaners or applicators, such
as S.O.S. Pads, soap-filled steel wool pads,
Soft Scrub, or Bon-Ami may be used with
extreme care on occasion to remove the most
serious stains. Exercise caution – extensive
use of abrasives will eventually damage the
porcelain enamel surface.
Control Panel
To avoid accidentally turning the oven on while
cleaning the control panel, activate the “Secure”
feature. Press and hold the “CANCEL•SECURE”
pad for approximately three seconds. This will
disable the control panel and allow cleaning
the controls without accidentally starting any
functions. “OFF” will appear in the display when
the control panel has been secured.
To re-activate the control panel, again push
and hold the “CANCEL•SECURE” pad for three
seconds. “OFF” will disappear from the display.
IMPORTANT:
Clean the control panel with a solution of
mild detergent and warm water. DO NOT USE
ABRASIVE CLEANERS OR SCRUBBERS.
THEY WILL PERMANENTLY DAMAGE THE
FINISH. Dry the control panel completely
with a soft, lint-free cloth.
Door Handle & Control Housing
IMPORTANT:
Clean the door handle and control
panel housing with a solution of mild
detergent and hot water. Rinse and dry
with a soft cloth. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE
CLEANERS OR SCRUBBERS. THEY WILL
PERMANENTLY DAMAGE THE FINISH.
Door Glass
Clean all glass surfaces with a solution of mild
detergent and hot water. Use a mild glass
cleaner to remove fingerprints or smears. Dry
completely with a soft, lint-free cloth.
Stainless Steel Surfaces
The control panel, door(s) bullnose and side
panels are covered with stainless steel. Clean
these surfaces with the provided Elco Stainless
Steel Cleaner. Rinse and dry with a soft, lint-free
cloth.
IMPORTANT:
If commercially available stainless steel
cleaners are used, it is important to read the
labels for chlorine compounds. Chlorine is a
corrosive substance. If these compounds are
present, rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft,
lint-free cloth.
The convection fan filter is made of stainless
steel. Remove the filter regularly for cleaning,
as a clogged filter will reduce the effectiveness
of convection cooking modes. Soak the filter
in hot soapy water according to the package
directions. Dry the filter completely before
re-installing. Remove the filter during SelfCleaning. If the filter is left in the oven during
Self-Cleaning it will permanently discolor.
Re-install the filter before cooking in the
oven again. Failure to do so will expose the
convection fan blade that rotates at high
speed during convection modes.
Step 1: Orient the filter so that the two
mounting tabs are towards the rear, open
end down.
Always wipe stainless steel surfaces with the
grain.
Porcelain Surfaces
IMPORTANT:
The oven interior and inner door liners are
finished in porcelain enamel. Clean these
surfaces with a solution of mild detergent
and hot water. Rinse and dry with a soft
cloth. Do not use abrasives or commercial
oven cleaners. Always remove excess
grease and soil from the oven interior and
door prior to using the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Clean these surfaces with a solution of mild
detergent and warm water. Rinse, dry and
polish with a soft, lint-free cloth.

Step 2: Hook the two mounting tabs over the
center horizontal bar.
Brass, Chrome & Copper Surfaces
IMPORTANT:
If a commercially available polish is used,
it is important to read the label for chlorine
compounds. Chlorine is a corrosive
substance and is not recommended for
use with brass or chrome finishes. If these
compounds are present, rinse surface
thoroughly and dry with a soft, lint-free
cloth. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for
application of polish.
Broiler Pan
The oven broiler pan is finished in porcelain
enamel. Clean both components in a solution
of detergent and hot water. For heavy soil
conditions, use a scouring pad such as steel
wool with plenty of water. Rinse well after
cleaning.
Oven Racks
Oven racks are chrome-plated. For everyday
cleaning, apply a solution of detergent and hot
water. To clean heavy soil, use a scouring pad
such as steel wool with plenty of water, or use a
solution of 1 cup ammonia to 2 gallons of water.
Remove racks during Self-Cleaning. If racks
are left in the oven during self-cleaning, they
will permanently discolor.

full-strength sprays such as Simple Green, Ajax
All-Purpose Cleaner, Formula 409, or Scotch
Guard.
IMPORTANT:
1.
Never use the cooktop surface as a
cutting board.
2. Do not use abrasive cleaners or
applicators on the cooktop.
3. Do not try to remove heavy spills with
a sharp object such as a knife or metal
spatula. Sharp objects may scratch the
cooktop.
4. A small amount of baby oil may be
applied to stainless steel tops to restore
lustre.

Knobs and Spill Protector Rings
Stubborn stains may be removed by applying a
metal polishing compound.
The control knobs provided with these ranges
are designed for ease of use and longevity. The
“D” shaped design of the knob shaft ensures
proper orientation when re-installing the knob.
Beneath each knob, a spill protector ring
prevents liquid spills from entering the control
panel.
The Self-Clean time is variable from 2 to 4
hours to offer flexibility in handling various soil
conditions. A 2-hour cycle normally handles a
moderately soiled oven, whereas a 4-hour cycle
is recommended for a heavily soiled condition.
The Self-Clean cycle can also be delayed to
start at a later time if desired.
WARNING:
Never block the holes in the control panel
below the knobs. This will impair the flow of
combustion air and adversely affects burner
operation, possibly creating a hazardous
condition.
The oven features an automatic pyrolytic
Self-Cleaning cycle to eliminate the need for
difficult and time-consuming manual scrubbing
of interior surfaces. During this cycle, the oven
reaches extreme high temperatures to burn off
soil and deposits. A powder ash residue is left
in the bottom of the oven after completion of the
Self-Clean cycle.
Burner Rings
IMPORTANT:
The knobs should be washed regularly in
warm, soapy water. Hand dishwashing liquid
is excellent for this task. Knobs should be
removed by gently pulling them straight off of
the valve shafts. The spill protector rings should
be cleaned in place. Use caution to avoid
introduction of moisture into the control panel.
To replace knobs, align the “D-shaped” opening
at the bottom of the knob with the “D-shaped”
valve shaft, then carefully press the knob onto
the valve shaft.
IMPORTANT:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Turn the knobs to the “OFF” position
prior to removing them from the valve
stems.
The cooktop should never be operated
without the knobs and spill protector
rings in place.
Do not soak the knobs and spill
protector rings in water or place them in
the dishwasher.
Do not expose the knobs or spill
protector rings to direct flame, hot
utensils, or other sources of heat.
Do not use abrasive or corrosive
cleaners or applicators. They could cause
permanent damage.
Burner Bases
The brass burner rings spread the flame evenly
around the burner perimeters. The burner rings
must seat properly in the burner bases to enable
proper cooktop operation. To ensure proper
seating, five positioning tabs have been placed
on the bottom of each burner ring to slide into
corresponding notches in the fixed burner base.
Burner Rings
The burner rings are made of brass. To remove
the burner ring, first lift off the porcelain burner
cap. The burner ring may then be removed from
the burner base. Soak the burner ring in a warm
solution of hand dishwashing liquid and water,
then rinse well with clean water. Dry the burner
ring thoroughly before placing it back on the
burner base.
Burner Ignitors
1.
Under certain cooking or cleaning conditions,
your cooktop ignitors may become coated with
or corroded by food deposits, splattered grease
or cleaning agents. This condition can cause
erratic or continuous sparking. Keeping the
ignitors clean and dry will help to reduce this
problem.
To avoid unnecessary and costly service
calls, the homeowner should perform periodic
cleaning of the ignitors.
An Ignitor Cleaning Brush is enclosed for your
use in cleaning the cooktop ignitors.
It is normal for some smoke to be
emitted during the first few Self-Clean
cycles.
2.Popping sounds are normal during SelfClean cycles. These sounds are caused
by the expansion and contraction of
metal surfaces during heat-up and cooldown.
3. Do not line the oven with aluminum
foil or other materials. These items can
melt or burn during a Self-Clean cycle,
causing permanent damage to the oven.
WARNINGS:
1.
To clean the ignitors:
1. Be sure burners are cool to the touch.
Remove the grate, burner cap and burner
rings.
2. Brush completely around the ignitor,
including over and under the edge of
the metal cap and base. Use care while
cleaning here. The ignitor is porcelain and
can be fragile.
3. DO NOT USE WATER when cleaning the
ignitors. If a liquid must be used to clean
the ignitor effectively, use a small amount
of rubbing alcohol.
4. After cleaning, reinstall the burner ring,
burner cap and grate. Make sure the brass
burner ring is properly seated into the
burner base.
5. Test the burners. If erratic clicking is still
present, make sure the ignitor is completely
dry. If the unit still exhibits problems after
drying, call your local DACOR Authorized
Servicer.
Self-Cleaning
The electric door latch is a convenient safety
feature. The door latch is automatically activated
after selecting the Self-Clean mode. The latch
ensures that the oven door cannot be opened
while the interior oven temperatures are unsafe
to the user.
2.
3.
Do not operate the oven lights
in the Self-Clean mode.
Do not touch the outside surfaces of the
oven during the Self-Clean cycle.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners
inside the oven. Use of these cleaners
can produce hazardous fumes or can
permanently damage the porcelain
finishes.
Prepare the oven for Self-Cleaning by
following these steps:
1. Clean soil from the oven front frame area
and the oven door outside of the door
gasket. Cleaning the door gasket by hand
can cause it to bend or move. A tight door
seal is essential for proper baking and
Self-Cleaning. 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.
2. Remove the broiler pan, all cookware,
utensils and other loose items from the
oven chamber. Also, remove all oven
racks and the convection fan filter to
prevent them from permanently discoloring. However, to clean stubborn particles in the
convection filter you may elect to simply
leave it in place during self-clean. The filter
will discolor due to the high heat, but this
will not harm the filtering capabilities.
IMPORTANT:
If racks are left in the oven during a SelfClean cycle, it will affect their ability to slide
in and out easily. 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 will slide more easily.
10
3.
4.
Wipe up excess grease and other food
spills with a damp cloth. This will minimize
smoke and increase the efficiency of the
Self-Clean cycle.
Turn on kitchen fans or vents to help
remove odors during the Self-Clean cycle.
Follow these steps to Self-Clean the oven:
1. Complete all steps listed above for
preparing the oven for Self-Cleaning.
2. Close the oven door completely.
3. Press the “SELF-CLEAN” touch pad. The
oven will beep once, “CLEAN” will flash,
and “– –:– –” will be displayed.
4. Press the “TIME•TEMP” “+” pad and
the default time of “2:00” hours will be
displayed.
5. Increase the self-clean time up to 4 hours
(depending upon the amount of oven soil)
by holding the “TIME•TEMP” “+” pad.
6. To delay the self-clean start to a more
convenient time, press the “STOP TIME”
touch pad. Then, press the “TIME•TEMP”
“+” pad to set the time of day for the
cycle to be complete. “DELAY TIMED” will
appear in the clock display. The cycle can
be delayed up to 11 hours and 50 minutes.
7. Approximately 30 to 60 seconds after
selecting Self-Clean, the automatic door
latch will lock the door. “LOCK” and “ON”
will appear in the clock display. The oven
will begin heating. The “ON” indicator will
cycle on and off with the burner.
NOTE:
If Delay Timed mode has been set, the
“ON” display and the oven heat will not
turn on until the programmed time has been
reached.
IMPORTANT:
If the door is not closed completely, the
automatic door latch will not be able to
lock the door when the Self-Clean mode
is selected. In this case, “door” will flash
in the clock display. If this occurs, press
the “CANCEL•SECURE” pad and wait
approximately 1 minute. Repeat the SelfClean steps from the beginning, being
certain to close the door completely. Do
not try to force the door open after it is
locked, as the automatic latch can be
damaged. If you need to unlock the door,
turn off the Self-Clean cycle by pressing the
“CANCEL•SECURE” pad. After approximately
1 minute, “LOCK” will disappear from the
clock display, and the door will unlock.
The door will remain locked until the oven
temperature falls below 390˚F. Do not select
any cooking function until the oven door is
unlocked.
8.
9.
About 50 to 60 minutes will be required
for the oven to reach the Self-Clean
temperature.
The Self-Clean cycle can be stopped at
any time by pressing “CANCEL•SECURE.”
10. After completion of the Self-Clean cycle,
the oven will stop heating and the “ON”
and “CLEAN” indicators will disappear
from the clock display. Press the
“CANCEL•SECURE” pad.
11. After the interior oven temperature falls
below 390˚F, the door latch will release
and “LOCK” will disappear from the clock
display. The door can now be opened.
12. Open the door. After ensuring that the
oven has cooled sufficiently to be safe, use
a damp cloth or sponge to wipe out the
powder residue found in the bottom of the
oven. If white spots remain in the oven,
remove them with a non-scratch scouring
pad before using the oven again. These
spots are normally salt that cannot be
removed by a Self-Clean cycle.
13. Re-install the oven racks and convection
fan filter before cooking in the oven.
3.
4.
5.
Press and hold the “BAKE” selector
pad. After approximately 5 seconds the
temperature display is replaced by “00”.
The “BAKE” pad can now be released. The
calibration mode has been accessed.
Press the “TIME•TEMP” “+“ or “–” pad to
set the amount of temperature adjustment.
The temperature can be changed a
maximum of 35˚F higher or lower. Set
the adjustment to positive (+) numbers
to increase the oven temperature; set
the adjustment to negative (–) numbers
to reduce the oven temperature.
Temperatures can be adjusted in
increments of 5˚F.
After setting the desired temperature
adjustment, press the “CANCEL•SECURE”
pad to exit the calibration mode and to
reset the clock display.
IMPORTANT:
With the oven at room temperature, if the SelfClean mode is accidentally selected and the
oven enters Self-Clean mode (indicated by
“LOCK” and “ON” in the clock display), the
user must cancel out of this mode before
attempting to select a different mode. To
cancel, press the “CANCEL•SECURE” pad.
Wait at least 60 seconds before attempting
to select another mode. This allows the
door latch time to unlock. The user may
find the temperature in their new oven to
be different from that of their previouslyowned appliance. Familiarity with the old
appliance sometimes makes it difficult to get
used to a new oven. If you feel that the oven
temperature is consistently high or low, the
temperature of the new oven can be adjusted.
The adjustment needs to be done only once.

SELF-CLEANING TIPS
1. If any soil remains in the oven after
completion of a Self-Clean cycle, repeat
the cycle if desired. Increase the cleaning
time during future cycles.
2. Clean the oven regularly to prevent
excessive soil build-up. This will increase
the efficiency of the Self-Clean cycle and
reduce the amount of smoke and odors
generated.
3. Self-Clean in the cooler evening hours after
cooking is complete and when electricity
rates are lower.
4. In the 48 inch model Ranges, if one oven is
in the Self-Clean mode the second oven is
inoperable.
