Hazards or unsafe practices that COULD result in minor
personal injury or property damage.
IMPORTANT: If you smell gas:
• Do not use or light any appliance.
• Do not touch any electrical switch or use any electrical devices including the telephone in your building.
• From a neighbor's phone, immediately call the gas supplier. Follow the gas supplier's instructions.
• If you cannot contact the gas supplier, call the fire department.
IMPORTANT: To avoid the possibility of explosion or fire, do not store or use combustible, flammable or explosive
vapors and liquids (such as gasoline) in the vicinity of this or any other appliance. Also keep items that could explode,
such as aerosol cans away from the cooktop. Do not store flammable or explosive materials in adjacent cabinets or
areas.
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.
NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages on the
cooktop or cooktop chassis. Doing so blocks air flow
through the cooktop and may cause carbon monoxide
poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may also trap heat,
causing a fire hazard. Keep all slots clear of grease and
grime.
The burning of gas cooking fuel generates some
by-products that are on the list of substances which
are known by the State of California to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. California law requires businesses
to warn customers of potential exposure to such
substances. To minimize exposure to these substances,
always operate this unit according to the use and care
manual, ensuring you provide good ventilation when
cooking with gas.

Selecting the Cookware
Lighting a Burner
• To avoid burns and scalding, always turn pan handles
to a position where they cannot be easily hit. Also,
handles should not extend over adjacent burners.
Always set utensils gently onto the grates and center
them so that they are well-balanced.
-
To avoid the chance of fire, explosion or carbon
monoxide poisoning, do not attempt to use your
cooktop without the burners completely and properly
........................
burner rings spread the
flame evenly around the burner cap. The burner rings
must be properly seated for proper burner lighting and
operation.
Do not drag cookware across the grates. Sliding may
damage the finish. Lift utensils to reposition them. Do
not drop them on the grate.
• In the interest of safety, always light the burner before
putting the cooking utensil on the grate. Turn the
burner knob to the OFF position before removing the
utensil. Always check the position of the control knobs
to make sure the cooktop is off when you are finished
cooking.
• Cookware with rough bottoms can cause permanent
damage to the coated surfaces on the grates.
• To avoid burns or a fire hazard, reduce the flame level
if it extends beyond the bottom of the utensil. Flames
extending up the sides are potentially dangerous.
• Do not turn the knob farther than the HIGH position
until lit. Doing so may result in a burst of flame that
could cause burns or damage to the surrounding area.
• Do not touch any part of the burner while the igniter is
sparking. An electrical shock could result.
• Never light the burners with a match or other open
flame.
For overall safety and best cooktop performance,
select the correct cooking utensil for the food being
cooked. Improperly
selected cooking utensils will
not cook evenly or efficiently.
Use cookware
• Always check to make sure all control knobs are in the
OFF position when you are finished cooking.

Once the burner is lit, set the flame height to the
desired level by rotating the control knob further
counterclockwise,
then place the utensil on the
g rate.
IMPORTANT:
•
The flame should burn evenly around the perimeter of the burner, except underneath
each grate
support finger, where the flame height is reduced
by Dacor's Smart-Flame
feature. A normal flame
is steady and blue in color. Foreign material in
the gas line, especially in new construction,
may
cause an orange flame during initial operation.
The orange color will disappear with further use.
Small yellow tips on the ends of the flames are
normal when using LP gas.
•
If the flame is not even around the edge of the
burner, wait for the cooktop to cool and check to
make sure the burner is assembled properly (see
page 5).
•
When the cooktop is cool the igniter may continue to spark if the control knob is set to the
LOW position. The burner will stop sparking
when warm. The tendency to spark when cold
can be reduced by operating the burner at a
higher flame setting for about 60 seconds. After
60 seconds, lower the flame to cook. The burner
will also warm up faster if a utensil is placed on
the grate. The igniter will also spark automatically if the flame is distorted
by a draft or by
the household ventilation
system. Eliminate any
drafts or reduce the ventilation
blower speed to
reduce this type of problem.
•
To keep the burners operating
properly, keep the
burner igniters, burner rings and burner caps
clean and dry. See Care and Cleaning
starting
on page 8. Dirty or wet igniters will result in constant sparking,
even if there is a flame present.
Cooking Tips
For superior
energy:
cooking
performance
and to save
•
Reduce the flame height to the minimum
level
necessary to perform the desired cooking process. Food cooks just as quickly at a gentle boil
as it does at a vigorous, rolling boil. A higher boil
than is necessary wastes energy, cooks away
moisture and causes a loss in food flavor and
nutrients.
•
Dacor's SimmerSear
feature allows you precision
control of the flame. The larger the burner size,
the wider the range of control. See page 4 for
the heat ranges of the different
burners.
•
Use low or medium flame heights when cooking in utensils made of materials that are poor
conductors
of heat, such as glass, ceramic and
cast iron. Reduce the flame height until it covers
approximately
1/3 of the utensil diameter
to
ensure even heating and reduce scorching.
•
Minimize the amount
cooking times.
•
Use a timer rather than repeatedly
removing the
lid to check food. Doing so will decrease cooking
time and save energy.

Cleaning the Cooktop
To keep the cooktop looking and operating its best,
clean it after every use. Also, quickly wipe up spills
that occur while cooking. Be careful not to touch any
hot areas. Spills that remain on hot burner parts
will be very difficult to clean, especially if allowed to
burn on. Certain types of food, such as tomatoes,
citrus juices, vinegar, alcohol and milk can damage
the finishes if you allow them to stand for any
length of time.
IMPORTANT:
The cooktop is exposed to extremely
high temperatures.
The grates are under high stress
when hot utensils are placed on them. Also, the
cooktop parts are occasionally
exposed to acidic
food spill-overs.
These severe operating conditions,
cause the porcelain enamel parts on your cooktop
to undergo a change in appearance
over time. [f
you care for and clean these parts carefully, you will
slow down, but not eliminate,
the aging process.
