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 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.
• 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.
• 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 drag cookware across the grates. Sliding may
damage the finish. Lift utensils to reposition them. Do
not drop them on the grate.
• 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.
• 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 pan. 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
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 the
OFF position. Open a window and allow at least five
minutes for the gas to dissipate. Repeat the lighting
procedure.
Below are the instructions on how to light and use
the burners. Refer to the figure Burner Control Knob
(on the next page) while following these steps.
1. Press down and turn the burner control knob
slowly (left) to the HIGH flame mark.
Use cookware that:
•
Has flat, smooth bottoms.
•
Is well balanced.
•
Has tight fitting lids to keep heat, odors and
steam in.
•
As you turn the knob, the burner igniters will
spark until the flame ignites. The igniters will
stop sparking when ignition occurs.
2. Once the burner is lit, set the flame height to the
desired level by rotating the control knob.
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.

Cooking Tips
Lighting a Burner (cont’d)
Knob
For superior cooking performance and energy
savings:
Low
Flame
•
Reduce flame to the minimum level necessary to
cook. Food cooks just as quickly at a gentle boil
as it does at a vigorous, rolling boil. A higher boil
than necessary wastes energy, pulls out moisture, damages food, and causes loss in flavor
and nutrients.
•
Use low or medium flame when using cookware
that is poor conductor of heat, such as glass,
ceramic, and cast iron. Reduce the flame until
it spreads approximately 1/3 underneath the
bottom of the pan to ensure even heating and to
reduce scorching.
•
Use a timer instead of repeatedly removing the
lid to check food. Doing so will decrease cooking
time, save energy, and keep a consistent cooking temperature.

Selector
Flame
Control
Burner
indicator
High
Flame
Burner Control Knob
Accessories
IMPORTANT:
When no burner activity is detected for more than
60 seconds, the cooktop will auto-shut off.
•
When the cooktop is cool, the igniter may continue to spark if the burner setting is set too low.
However, the burner will stop sparking when
warm. To solve this, turn the burner on “5” for
about 1 minute, then reduce the flame to cook.
•
The burner will warm up faster if cookware is
placed on the grate.
•
The igniter will also keep sparking automatically
if the flame is interfered with by a draft or by the
household ventilation system.
•
Eliminate any drafts or reduce the cooktop ventilation’s blower speed.
•
To ensure that the burners operate properly,
keep the burner igniters, burner rings, and
burner caps clean and dry. See Care and
Cleaning starting on page 10.
•
Dirty or wet igniters will result in constant sparking, even if there is a flame present.
•
The flame should burn evenly around 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. 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.
Simmer Plate (Dacor Model# ASP10): The
optional simmer plate is designed to spread the heat
of a burner evenly along the bottom of the cookware. It is used for simmering and holding food at
the lowest, safest temperature. It has a non-stick
coating for easy cleaning.
Wok Ring (Dacor Model# AWR): The included
wok ring is a safe, convenient way to stir fry.
Designed to work together with the grates, the wok
ring seats securely in the center of any grate. It will
support most standard-sized woks.
Griddle (Dacor Model# AG11 or AG13): The
optional griddle is coated with a non-stick and easyto-clean finish. It is great for cooking pancakes,
eggs, bacon, and various other foods. The griddle is
designed to sit on top of your burner grates. Dacor
recommends not to exceed the medium temperature setting to avoid damage to the cooktop. See
the instructions included with the griddle or online
for further information.

2. When the cooktop
Disassembling the Cooktop
is cool, remove the
grates from the top of the cooktop.
3. Disassemble the burners by lifting the burner
caps and burner rings off of the burner bases.
• After cleaning the burners, always dry and reassemble
the cooktop parts completely before use. See page 5.
Cleaning the Grates, Spill Trays,
and the Wok Ring Accessory
CAUTION
• 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.
WARNING
Do not clean the cooktop grates, burner parts or Wok
Ring in a dishwasher. They will be damaged.
• 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.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use any of the cleaners
listed below on 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.
• 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.
The grates, spill tray (on some models), and
optional WOK ring are coated with a porcelain finish.
• Do not soak the knobs in water or put them in the
dishwasher.
Cleaning the Cooktop
•
For everyday cleaning, use a soft cloth or nonabrasive pad with warm soapy water to clean all
of the porcelain parts.
•
For tough stains, if necessary, apply full-strength
sprays such as Simple Green™, Ajax™ AllPurpose Cleaner or
Formula 409™. To
minimize wear, use
the mildest cleaner
needed to get the surface clean.
•
For extremely
stubborn stains, 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 with extreme care
and only occasionally. Aggressive or extensive
use of these types of abrasives will damage
the finish. Damage to finish caused by
using abrasives is not covered under your
warranty.
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, scorch, 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 sit for any length of time.
IMPORTANT: The cooktop is exposed to extremely
hot temperatures, and 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.

Care and Cleaning
Cleaning the Igniters and
Other Burner Components
Cleaning Stainless Steel
WARNING
WARNING
Always wipe stainless steel (silver colored) surfaces with
the grain. To prevent scratching, do not use abrasive
cleaners or scrubbers on stainless steel surfaces.
Use care while cleaning the igniters. The porcelain is
fragile and can crack or break.
IMPORTANT: The igniter will not work correctly if it
or the other burner parts are not clean. Dirty or wet
igniters may not spark at all.
•
Clean stainless steel surfaces with the Dacor
Stainless Steel Cleaner included with your
cooktop. Use it according to the directions on
the package. You may order additional stainless steel cleaner at www.everythingdacor.com.
Order part number A302.
•
You may also clean the stainless steel surfaces

7. Plug the cooktop power cord to an electrical
outlet.
3. Clean all the burner parts, including the burner
bases, with window cleaner or rubbing alcohol.
Use a cleaning brush with plastic bristles or a
firm tooth brush. When done, rinse the parts
well with clean water. Dry all the parts thoroughly before re-assembling them.
Cleaning the Griddle Accessory
Clean the griddle after each use. Hot water and
liquid detergent are all that is needed to avoid stains
from grease build up. The griddle is coated with a
non-stick surface for easy cleaning.
4. 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.
Remove stubborn spots with a non-abrasive plastic
mesh pad.
