Operating Your Cooktop
Selecting the Cookware
Lighting a Burner
WARNING
WARNING
• NEVER cover the slots between the burner control
knobs and the trim rings on the cooktop. Doing so
blocks air flow through the cooktop and may cause
carbon monoxide poisoning. Keep all the slots clear of
grease and grime.
• To avoid the chance of fire, explosion or carbon
monoxide poisoning, do not attempt to use your
cooktop without the burners completely and correctly
assembled (see page 5). The burner rings spread
the flame evenly around the burner cap. The burner
rings must be fully seated for correct burner lighting
and performance.
• 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 cookware gently onto the grates and center
them so that they are well-balanced.
• 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
cookware. Always check the position of the control
knobs to make sure the cooktop is off when you are
finished cooking.
• Do not drag cookware across the grates. Sliding may
damage the finish on the grates. Lift cookware to
reposition it. Do not drop it on the grate.
• Do not turn the knob past the HIGH flame mark until
lit. Doing so may result in a burst of flame that could
cause burns or damage to the surrounding area.
• Cookware with rough bottoms can cause permanent
damage to the coated surfaces on the grates.
• To avoid burns or fire hazard, reduce the flame level if
it extends beyond the bottom of the cookware. A flame
that extends up the sides of the pan is potentially
dangerous.
• 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 cookware for the food being prepared. Improperly selected cookware will not cook
food evenly or efficiently.
• If the gas does not ignite after four seconds or if the
flame goes out and gas escapes, turn the knob to
OFF. Open a window and allow at least five minutes
for the gas to dissipate. Repeat the lighting procedure.
To Light a Burner:
Refer to the illustrations to the right while following
these instructions.
1. Press the knob that controls the burner (refer to
the burner indicator icon) and turn it slowly
toward the light FLAME icon. As you turn
the knob, the igniter will spark until the flame
ignites. The igniter will stop sparking when ignition occurs.
Use cookware that:
• Has flat, smooth bottoms.
• Is well balanced.
• Has tight fitting lids to keep heat, odors, and
steam inside.
2. Once the burner is lit, adjust the flame height by
turning the control knob.
• The thickness of the black line under the flame
on the trim ring corresponds with the flame
height.
• The flame height lowers as the knob moves
away from the flame icon.
SimmerSear™ Burners
IMPORTANT: Avoid spills as much as possible.
The porcelain surfaces of the grates, spill trays, and
burner caps are acid-resistant but not acid-proof.
Some foods can cause permanent damage if allowed
to remain on porcelain surfaces.
When turning the knob to the SIMMER flame level,
only one of the two burners is used.

Operating Your Cooktop
Burner Knob Icons and Operation
IMPORTANT:
• When the cooktop is cool, the igniter may continue to spark if the burner knob is set to the
LOW position. The burner will stop sparking
when warm.
The icons that surround the knobs help show how to
use and control the burner.
On
• The tendency to spark when cold can be reduced
by using the burner at a higher flame for about
60 seconds. After 60 seconds, lower the flame
to cook. The burner will also warm up faster if
cookware is placed its grate.
OFF
Burner
Indicator
• 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.
Light
Flame
High
Flame
• 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 9. Dirty or wet igniters will result in
constant sparking, even if there is a flame present.
Low

Cooking Tips
Accessories
For superior cooking performance and to save
energy:
Wok Ring (Part# AWR4): This wok ring is a safe,
convenient way to stir fry. Place the ring on top of
the grate, aligning the wok ring feet with the grate
fingers. It will hold most standard-sized woks.
• Boil at the lowest flame necessary. Food cooks
just as quickly at a gentle boil as it does at a
vigorous, rolling boil. A stronger boil than is necessary wastes energy, cooks away moisture, and
causes a loss in food flavor and nutrients.
Griddle (Part# AG13): The AG13 easy clean
griddle is coated with a non-stick finish. It is great
for cooking pancakes, eggs, bacon, steaks, and
various other pan-fried foods. It is designed to sit on
top of your cooktop burner grates. A maximum setting of medium is recommended to avoid damage to
the cooktop. See the instructions included with the
griddle or at www.dacor.com for further information.
• Use low or medium flame when cooking in cookware that is a poor conductor of heat, such as
glass, ceramic, and cast iron cooking vessels.
Reduce the flame until it spreads approximately
1/3 of the underneath area of the cookware to
ensure even heating and to reduce scorching.
• Minimize the amount of liquid or fat to reduce
cooking times.
• Use a timer rather than repeatedly removing the
lid to check food. Doing so will decrease cooking
time and save energy.
• 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.

Care and Cleaning
Disassembly
WARNING
1. For safety, disconnect the cooktop
power cord from
the electrical outlet.
• Clean only the parts of the cooktop listed in this
manual. Clean them only in the manner specified.
• To avoid dangerous fumes or damage to your
cooktop’s surfaces and accessories, use only the
types of cleaning solutions specified in this manual.
2. When the cooktop
is cool, remove the
grates from the top
of the cooktop.
• To avoid electrical shock or burns, turn off the burners
and make sure that all parts are cool before cleaning.
DO NOT turn the burners on during cleaning.
3. Disassemble the
burners:
• Do not use a steam cleaner to clean the cooktop.
Steam could penetrate the electrical components
and cause a short circuit. After cleaning the burners,
reassemble all of the burner parts before attempting to
operate the cooktop.
SimmerSear™ Burner
Disassembly
Lift the cap cover and burner cap off of the burner
head. However, the burner head on the SimmerSear™ burner is not removable.
• After cleaning the burners, always dry and reassemble
the cooktop parts completely before use. See page 5.
Single Burner Disassembly
CAUTION
Lift the cap cover and burner head off of the burner
base.
• Do not try to remove heavy spills with a sharp object
such as a knife or metal spatula. Sharp objects may
scratch your cooktop’s surfaces.
Cleaning the Grates, Spill Trays, and Wok
Ring
• To prevent damage, do not use abrasive or corrosive
cleaners or applicators such as steel wool or scouring
pads, on any part of the cooktop 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 cooktop.
WARNING
Do not clean the cooktop grates, burner parts or Wok
ring in a dishwasher. They will be damaged.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use any of the cleaners listed
below to clean the burners and igniters. See the facing page
for burner and igniter cleaning instructions. Also, if your
cooktop is equipped with stainless steel spill trays,
see the Cleaning Stainless Steel Surfaces section
for spill tray cleaning instructions.
• Take care when cleaning around the control valve
stems. If you get moisture inside the holes in the
chassis, damage to the cooktop can occur.
• Do not soak the knobs in water or put them in the
dishwasher.
The grates, the spill tray (on some models) and
optional Wok ring are coated with a porcelain finish.
Cleaning the Cooktop
• For everyday cleaning, use a soft cloth or nonabrasive pad with warm soapy water to clean all
of the porcelain parts.
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.
• If necessary, tough stains may be removed by
applying full-strength sprays such as Simple
Green™, Ajax™ All-Purpose Cleaner or Formula
409™. To minimize wear, use the mildest cleaner
needed to get the surface clean.
If you allow spills to sit on hot burner parts, they
will burn and be very difficult to clean. 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.
• For extremely stubborn stains, you may use a
mildly abrasive cleaner or applicator, such as
Soft Scrub™, Bon Ami™, S.O.S.® pads or other
soap-filled steel wool pads. Use these cleaners
carefully and only occasionally. Aggressive
or extensive use of these types of abrasives will
damage the finish. Damage to the finish due
to the use of abrasives is not covered under
your warranty.
IMPORTANT: The cooktop is exposed to extremely
high temperatures. The grates are under high stress
when hot cookware is placed on them. Also, the
cooktop parts are occasionally exposed to acidic
food spill-overs. These severe conditions cause the
porcelain enamel parts on your cooktop to undergo
a change in appearance over time. If you care for
and clean these parts carefully, you will slow down–
but not eliminate–the aging process.
