The new Distinctive 36″ Gas cooktop offers a stylish design, remarkable craftsmanship, performance and value expected from the Distinctive Series, making a fine addition to any kitchen.
The Distinctive 36″ gas cooktop is the first Dacor product developed in collaboration with BMW Group DesignworksUSA, a company well known for its forward-thinking innovation in design development and selective use of color, materials and finishes. BMW Group DesignworksUSA has worked with many of the world’s great brands and is an international leader in design strategy, premium design development, and brand communication. Now, BMW Group DesignworksUSA brings its expertise to Dacor and its Distinctive 36″ gas cooktop, designed to bring a unique style to any kitchen while enhancing the appearance of both countertops and cabinetry alike.
BMW Group DesignworksUSA recognizes that style and appearance are equally as important as an appliance’s features and functions, and has ensured that each stylish design detail also serves a purpose. The cooktop is designed with ergonomic angled controls for ease of use and IlluminaTM Indicator Lights that glow in Dacor’s signature flame-blue when a burner is on, providing a modern, eye-catching look while making kitchen safety a priority. The design team employed a strict process of direction, design and development ensuring that the Distinctive cooktop was developed with both creativity and quality.
Full of features that provide professional-grade performance, the Distinctive cooktop is an amenity that enhances a kitchen’s overall look, while supplying you with endless culinary possibilities. The cooktop is equipped with 5 burners to meet your every cooking need, including one SimmerSear burner with melting feature, which allows superior precision and control for the home chef with the option to simmer, sear or sauté at ultra-high or ultra-low temperatures, up to 18,000 BTUs. The Dacor gas cooktop also has 2 sealed burners that provide 12,000 BTUs and 2 sealed burners that provide 9,000 BTUs.
The new Dacor gas cooktop features exclusive PermaClean Finish, a scratch-resistant surface that can handle tough scrubbing so that baked on even burnt-on messes clean up with ease, leaving the cooktop surface beautiful. In addition to the exclusive PermaClean finish, the Distinctive cooktop has a one-piece spill basin to further ensure that clean up will be a breeze.
The industry leading Continuous Platform Grates provide for the optimum cooking surface for larger pots while allowing for multiple pans side-by-side. Additionally, the Perma-Flame instant re-ignition feature automatically re-lights a burner immediately if it goes out, ensuring continuous heating and a nearly effortless cooking process.
Ensuring that the Distinctive cooktop is fully functional for the life of the kitchen, Dacor has equipped all burners with Smart Flame technology, which ensures the burner flames do not directly contact the fingers of the porcelain-coated cast iron grates, helping to extend the life of the grates. The new gas cooktop rolls out to authorized Dacor dealers on November 1, 2010 with an MSRP of $1,210
