General Safety Precautions
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, serious
safety precautions,
including the following:
injury
• If you receive a damaged product, immediately contact
your dealer or builder. Do not install or use a damaged
appliance.
• Make sure that the cooktop 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 gas shut off valve
and the power cord so that you know where and how
to turn off the gas supply and disconnect power to the
cooktop.
• Do not install, repair or replace any part of the cooktop
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 gas supply is turned off and the power cord to the
cooktop is disconnected.
• Only use this cooktop for cooking tasks expected of
a home appliance as outlined in this manual. This
cooktop is not intended for commercial use.
• DO NOT TOUCH THE SURFACES OF THE
COOKTOP DURING OR IMMEDIATELY AFTER
USE. After use, make sure these surfaces have had
sufficient time to cool before touching them.
• Make sure individuals who use the cooktop are able to
operate it properly.
• Never allow anyone, including children to sit, stand or
climb on any part of the cooktop. Doing so may cause
damage, serious injury or death. Do not leave children
alone or unattended in the area around the cooktop.
Do not allow children to play with the controls, pull on
the handle or touch other parts of the cooktop.
• Do not store items of interest to children on top of or
above the cooktop. Children could be burned or injured
while climbing on the appliance.
• Do not attempt to use this appliance in the event of a
power failure. If a power failure occurs while operating
• the cooktop, turn all control knobs to the OFF position.
Do not tamper with the controls. Do not adjust or alter
any part of the cooktop unless specifically instructed to
do so in these instructions.
• Do not cover the burners and grates with anything
except properly selected utensils. Decorative covers
may cause a fire hazard or damage to the cooktop if a
burner is accidentally turned on with the cover in place.
• 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.
or death
when
using your cooktop,
follow
basic
• Clean the cooktop thoroughly before operating it for
the first time.
• Keep flammable items, such as paper, cardboard,
plastic and cloth away from the burners and other
hot surfaces. Do not allow pot holders to touch hot
surfaces or gas burners.
• Do not wear loose or hanging apparel while using the
cooktop. Do not allow clothing to come into contact
with the cooktop and surrounding areas during and
immediately after use.
• Do not use towels or bulky cloth as pot holders.
• Do not hang flammable or heat sensitive objects over
the cooktop.
• If the cooktop is near a window, do not use long
curtains as window treatment. The curtains could blow
over the cooktop and create a fire hazard.
• To avoid the possibility of fire, do not leave the cooktop
unattended when in use.
• Clean and maintain the cooktop regularly as instructed
in this manual. Keep the entire cooktop, ventilation
filters and cooktop hoods free of grease that could
catch fire.
• Use cookware only for its intended purpose. Check
the manufacture's recommendations before use to
determine if a utensil is suitable for use on a cooktop.
Certain types of glass, ceramic and earthenware are
not suitable for use on a cooktop. Personal injury
or damage may result from the improper use of
cookware.
• Select cookware carefully. Use utensils of the proper
size, material and construction for the particular type
of cooking being done. Utensils need to be large
nough to contain the desired quantity of food without
boil-overs or spill-overs. 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 extreme caution if adding water to fooa on a
hot cooktop. The steam can cause serious burns or
scalds.
• Use only dry pot holders when removing food and
cookware from the cooktop. Wet pot holders can
cause stea m burns.
• Make sure that all the cooktop parts are dry before
lighting a burner.
• Turn the knobs to the OFF position prior to removing
them from the valve stems.
!ii !!illi!iii! ii i i i
rrl
• The cooktop should never be operated without the
knobs in place.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS IN
THE EVENT OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE:
• Non-stick coatings, when heated, can be harmful to
birds. Remove birds to a separate, well-ventilated
room during cooking.
a. SMOTHER FLAMES with a close-fitting lid, cookie
sheet or metal tray, then turn off the burner. BE
CAREFUL TO PREVENT BURNS. If the flames do not
go out immediately, EVACUATE AND CALL THE FIRE
DEPARTMENT.
• When deep fat frying:
0 Be certain that the pan is large enough to contain
the desired volume of food without overflow caused
by the bubbling of the fat. Never leave a deep fat
fryer unattended.
b. NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - you may be
burned.
c. DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dish cloths or
towels - a violent steam explosion may result.
0 Avoid frying moist or frost-covered foods. Foods
with high water content may cause spattering or
spilling of the hot fat.
d. Use a fire extinguisher
0 You have a Class ABC extinguisher, and you
already know how to operate it.
0 Heat fat slowly, and stir together any combination
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.
0 The fire is small and contained in the area where it
started.
0 The fire department is being called.
• This appliance is equipped with a three-prong
grounding plug for your protection against possible
electric shock hazards. If only a two-prong outlet is
available, it is the customer's responsibility to have
it replaced with a dedicated, grounded three-prong
electrical outlet by a licensed electrician. Do not under
any circumstances:
0 You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.
• Do not allow acids (citrus juices, tomato sauces, etc.)
to remain on the cooktop's surfaces. The porcelain
finish may stain.
0 Cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the
power cord.
• Never use the cooktop surface as a cutting board.
• Do not try to remove heavy spills with a sharp object
such as a knife or metal spatula. Sharp objects may
scratch the cooktop's surfaces.
0 Use an adapter plug.
0 Use an extension cord.
0 Use a power cord that is frayed or damaged.
• Do not expose the knobs or trim rings to direct flame,
hot utensils or other sources of heat.
0 Plug the cooktop into an electrical outlet with a
g round fault interrupter (GFI).

Parts of the Cooktop
SimmerSear
Burners:
Dacor's exclusive precision burner control system. Model RGC304 is
equipped with one SimmerSear
burner. Model
RGC365 is equipped with two. Each SimmerSear
burner has a wider range of heat settings than the
standard burners. The wider range allows you precise heat control from simmer to sear (high).
TM
Sealed Burners:
Gaskets around the underside of
all burner bases prevent spilled liquids from leaking
into the cooktop's internal parts.
Long Life Grates: The porcelain coated cast iron
grates support the cooking utensils during cooking.
They are removable
to allow the area below and
around the burners to be cleaned easily.
Spill Trays:
The spill trays catch any food that falls
through the cooktop grates.
Illuminated
Burner Control Knobs: Use the
knobs to turn on the burners and adjust the flame
size. The matching knob illuminates
when a burner
is on.
Trim Rings: Located behind each knob. They indicate the heat setting for each burner. The trim ring
around SimmerSear
control knobs show the simmer
setting and are equipped with a blue simmer indicator light. See Operating
Your Cooktop for more

Selecting the Cookware
, 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 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.
• Do not drag cookware across the grates. Sliding may
damage the finish. Lift utensils to reposition them. Do
not drop them on the grate.
, 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 utensil. A flame
that extends up the sides of the utensil is potentially
dangerous.
I
_
Lighting a Burner
• To avoid the chance of fire, explosion or carbon
monoxide poisoning, do not attempt to use your
cooktop without the burners completely and properly
assembled (see page 5). The burner rings spread the
flame evenly around the burner cap. The burner rings
must be properly seated for proper burner lighting and
operation.
• 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.
• 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.
• If the gas does not ignite after four seconds or if the
flame goes out and gas escapes, turn the knob to the
OFF position. Open a window and allow at least five
minutes for the gas to dissipate. Repeat the lighting
procedure.

To light a burner, press down on the corresponding control knob and turn it slowly_ counterclockwise to the HIGH position (see below). As you
turn the knob, the igniter for the selected burner
will spark until the flame ignites. The igniter will
stop sparking when ignition occurs.
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
grate. The thickness of the flame level indicator
on the trim ring indicates the flame setting.

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.
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.

Reduce the flame height to the minimum

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

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.
If you allow spills to sit on hot burner parts, they
will burn on 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.
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. If
you care for and clean these parts carefully, you will
slow down, but not eliminate,
the aging process.

IMPORTANT:
The igniters will not work properly
if the other burner parts or the igniters themselves
are not clean. Dirty or wet igniters may not spark at
all.
Cleaning Stainless Steel Surfaces
After dissembling
the burners, check for any dirt or
grime deposited on the individual
parts, including
the igniters.
1.
Reassemble the cooktop according to the burner
and grate assembly instructions
on page 5.
Test the burners after reassembling
them. If
the flame is uneven, be sure that all the burner
parts are properly positioned,
then check for any
remaining
dirt or grime on the burner parts or
igniter. If erratic clicking is still present, make
sure the igniter is completely
dry. If the unit still
exhibits problems after drying, call your local
Dacor Authorized
Service Agent.
Clean completely
around the igniter, including
over and under the edge of the metal top and
porcelain base. A firm toothbrush
is ideal for this
task. Use care while cleaning because the porcelain is fragile and can crack or break. Do not use
water to clean the igniters. If necessary, use a
small amount of rubbing alcohol to help dissolve

build-up. The griddle is coated with a non-stick
coating for easy cleaning. Warm water and liquid detergent are all that are needed for cleaning. Remove
stubborn spots with a non-abrasive
plastic mesh
pad. To prevent scratching,
do not use abrasives or
abrasive cleaners. Use the soft side of a sponge to
scrub it. Dry it with a lint-free cloth.
