2 General Safety Precautions To reduce risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury, and death in using the range, follow basic safety precautions, including: WARNING • If you receive a damaged product, immediately contact your dealer or builder. Do not install or use a damaged appliance. • Have the installer show you the gas shut-off valve and electrical outlet so you can turn them off if needed. • Do not install/repair/replace any part of the range unless specifically instructed in this manual; a qualified service technician should perform all other service. • Before any type of service, turn off the gas supply, and unplug the range. • Use the range only for residential cooking tasks as instructed in this manual. The range is not designed/certified for commercial or outdoor use. • DO NOT TOUCH THE RANGE OR SURROUNDING SURFACES DURING OR IMMEDIATELY AFTER USE. • Let no one use the range who does not know how to operate it properly. • Never let anyone, including children, to sit, stand. or climb on any part of the range. Doing so may cause tipping, damage, serious injury, or death. • Do not leave children or pets alone or unattended near the range. Do not let children play with the controls, pull on the handle, or touch other parts of the range. • Do not store items of interest to children on or above the range. Children could be burned or injured while climbing on the range. • Do not try to use the range during a power outage. If power fails, turn OFF all control knobs. • Keep flammable items (e.g., paper, cardboard, plastic, cloth) away from burners and other hot surfaces. Do not let potholders touch the gas flames. • Do not tamper with the controls. • Do not hang flammable or heat-sensitive items over the range. • Do not heat unopened food containers such as baby food jars and cans. Pressure buildup may burst the container and cause injury. • Cover burners and grates only with proper cookware. Decorative covers may cause a fire hazard or damage if a burner is turned on with the cover in place. • Do not wear loose or hanging apparel when using the range. Do not let clothing touch the range and surrounding areas during or immediately after use. • Do not use towels or bulky cloth as pot holders. • Do not handle hot cookware with wet potholders, which can cause steam burns. • If the range is near a window, do not hang curtains that could blow over the cooktop and create a fire hazard. • Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings; boilovers cause smoking, and greasy spillovers may ignite. • Clean the range thoroughly before operating it for the first time. • Clean and maintain the range regularly as instructed in Care and Cleaning; keep the range, ventilation filters, and range hood free of grease. • Use cookware only for its intended purpose. Check manufacturer instructions to determine suitablility for rangetop use. Personal injury or damage may result from use of improper cookware. • NEVER block range slots or holes, inside or out. Doing so impedes airflow and may cause fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. • Use extreme caution if adding water to food on a hot cooktop or oven. The steam can cause serious burns or scalds. • Never operate the range without the knobs and trim rings in place. WARNING • Use only cookware of the proper size, material, construction, and easily manageable weight. Cookware must be large enough to contain the food without spilling over. Choose pans with solid, easy-to-hold handles that will stay cool while cooking. • Do not let cookware boil dry. • Ensure all cooktop parts are dry before lighting a burner. • Turn burners off before removing the knobs. • Do not use the oven for storage. • When using the oven, stand aside when opening the door so hot air and steam can escape safely. • Always cook with the convection filter installed. If the filter is absent, the spinning fan blades at the back of the oven are a safety hazard. • Do not leave food in the oven over 1 hour before/after cooking. Eating spoiled food can cause food poisoning. • When deep-fat frying: - - use cookware that contains the oil and food without overflowing during frying; never leave a deep-fat fryer unattended. - - avoid frying moist or frosty foods; foods with high water content may cause hot oil to spatter/spill. - - heat fat slowly, and if combining oils, do so before heating; use a deep-fat frying thermometer to avoid heating oils beyond their flash points. Tip-over hazard: • A child or adult can tip the range and be killed. • Ensure the anti-tip bracket is properly attached per the installation instructions. With a flashlight, verify that the anti-tip foot engages the anti-tip bracket. • After moving the range, be sure to re-engage the rear leg with the floor or wall mounted anti-tip bracket as shown below. • Do not use the range without the anti-tip foot engaged with the anti-tip bracket. • The range’s 3-prong grounding plug protects against possible electric-shock hazards. If only a 2-prong outlet is available, the owner is responsible to have it replaced with the proper outlet by a licensed electrician. Never: - - remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. - - use an adapter plug. - - use an extension cord. - - use a damaged power cord. - - plug the cooktop into an electrical outlet with a (GFI) ground fault interrupter. TO REDUCE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY FROM A RANGETOP GREASE FIRE: • 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. • NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - you may be burned. • DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths/towels - a violent steam explosion may result. • Use a fire extinguisher ONLY if: - - You have a Class ABC extinguisher, and you already know how to operate it. - - The fire is small and contained in the area where it started. - - The fire department is being called. - - You can fight the fire with your back to an exit. Important Safety Instructions CAUTION • Do not let acids (citrus juices, tomato sauces, etc.) remain on range surfaces. The porcelain finish may stain. • Never use the cooktop surface as a cutting board. • Do not remove heavy spills with a sharp object (e.g., knife, metal spatula). Sharp objects may scratch the range’s surfaces. • Do not line the oven with foil or other material. These items can melt or burn up during self-cleaning and permanently damage the oven. • Do not expose the knobs or trim rings to direct heat. • Never use the oven without the lens covers in place. The covers high oven temperatures and mechanical shock from breaking the light bulbs. • Non-stick coatings, when heated, can be harmful to pet birds. Move birds to a separate, well-ventilated room when using the range.

8 Operating the Cooktop WARNING • To avoid risk of fire, explosion, or carbon monoxide poisoning, use the range only with the burners properly assembled (see Pg. 7). Burner rings must be properly seated for ignition. • To avoid personal injury, turn cookware handles away from active burners and the front edge of the range. Set cookware gently on the grates, and center them for stability. • Lift to reposition cookware. Sliding may damage the grate finish. • Cookware with rough bottoms can permanently marthe grate finish. • To avoid burns orfire hazard, keep the flame beneath the cookware. • Always turn the burner on before placing the cookware, and turn the burner off before removing the cookware. Always turn off all burners when finished cooking. • Do not turn the knob farther than HIGH until it ignites, or a burst of flame could cause burns or damage the surrounding area. • Do not touch any part of the burnerwhile the igniter is sparking. An electric shock could result. • Never light the burners with a flame. • If the gas does not ignite in 4 seconds, or if the flame goes out and gas escapes, turn the burner off. Open a window, wait 5 minutes for the gas to dissipate, then try lighting the burner. Selecting Cookware Foroverall safety, efficiency, and best results, select cookware best suited to the task. Use cookware that has tight-fitting lids and flat, smooth bottoms, and is well-balanced. IMPORTANT: Take care to avoid spills. The porcelain-coated grates, spill tray, and burnercaps are not acid-proof. Some foods can permanently marthe coating if not cleaned off quickly. Things to Know Before Using the Cooktop • A normal flame is steady and blue. Foreign material in the gas line, especially in a new range, may cause an orange flame that disappears with use. Yellow-tipped flames are normal forLP gas. • See Pg. 5 forthe heat ranges of the different burners. • Food cooks as quickly at a gentle boil as at a rolling boil, which wastes energy and cooks out moisture, flavor, and nutrients. • Use a low/medium flame with poor-heat-conducting cookware (e.g., glass, ceramic, orcast iron). Adjust the flame to cover1/3 of the cookware diameterto ensure even heating and lowerthe risk of scorching the food. • Dacor’s SimmerSearfeature lets you precisely control the flame on the SimmerSearburner, from low to high heat. Lighting a Burner Each knob has a small diagram next to it that shows which burnerit controls. 1. Push-turn the knob to HIGH (flame icon). The knob illuminates; the ignitersparks (click-click) until the burnerignites (about 4 sec’s). The flame burns evenly around the burner, except below each grate-support finger, where the flame is reduced by Dacor’s Smart Flame feature. If there is no ignition in 4 seconds, orif the flame goes out, turn the burneroff. Open a window, and let the gas dissipate for5 minutes, then try relighting. If the burnerstill does not ignite, the igniterkeeps sparking, orif the flame spreads unevenly around the burnercap, see Troubleshooting, Pg.15. 2. Place the cookware on the grate, and adjust the flame to the cooking task. Operating the Oven WARNING Do not touch any part of the oven during or directly after use. Burning In the Oven Manufacturing residue commonly remains in the oven. Burn this residue away before using the oven forthe first time. 1. Shut birds and otherpets in another, well-ventilated room. 2. Open kitchen windows, and turn on the range hood. 3. Turn the oven to BROIL for10 minutes. Odors and smoke from the backguard vent are normal. 4. Turn the oven to 350°F for30 minutes, then turn off the oven. 5. When odors and smoke clear, close the windows, and turn off the range hood. Installing/Removing the Oven Racks WARNING The oven racks become hot when the oven is in use. The rack supports offerseven positioning levels. Installing/Removing a Standard Oven Rack 1. Orient the rack with the safety notches toward the oven. OFF HIGH LOW Operating the Range

Tip up the front about 6 inches so the safety notches clearthe ends of the rack supports, and push the rack fully in. 4. To remove the rack: a. grasp it with both hands, and pull gently until it stops. b. tip the front up, and pull the rack away from the oven. (Tipping releases the safety notches, which keep the rack from coming out of the oven accidentally.) Installing/Removing a GlideRackTM This rack lets you easily and safely slide cookware out to check food without removing it from the oven. 1. Extend the rack guides fully. 2. Align the left and right safety clips on the back of the guides with the rack supports. 3. Slide the rack in so the supports pass between the rack’s safety clips. (Tip the front of the rack up so the front safety clips clearthe front of the rack supports.) 4. Lowerthe front of the rack so the front of the support is between the front safety clip and the rack stop. 5. Grasp the rack center-front, and pull. The guides should stay in place. Operating the Range Front of rack Rack support Slide rack onto supports Safety notch 6. To remove the rack: a. grasp it with both hands, and pull gently until it stops. b. tip the front up so the front safety clips clearthe front of the supports, and pull the rack away from the oven. (Jiggle the rack side-to-side as you pull to ease removal.) Using the Oven Modes See Pg.12 forSelf-Clean mode. Mode Description Bake Provides conventional heat via a burnerin the oven floor. Temperatures may be set from 200 – 500°F. Use this mode forsingle-rack baking. Convection Bake Uses the bottom burnerand convection fan to circulate heated airevenly throughout the oven. Temperatures may be set from 200 – 500°F. This mode is good for roasting and single-rack baking in a deep pan. Broil Uses a burnerin the oven ceiling. This mode is good for grilling smallercuts of meat and toasting bread. Convection Broil Uses the top burnerand convection fan forbetterheat dis- tribution. This mode is good foritems that do not need to be turned (e.g., garlic bread, thinnercuts of meat and fish. Warm Keeps food warm aftercooking; turn oven knob to WARM. Using Bake Mode 1. Turn the oven knob (center) to the desired temperature. The burner’s ON indicatorilluminates; within1 minute, the bake burnerignites. 2. Let the oven preheat.

10 Baking Tips Tips: All Bake Modes • Avoid opening the oven doorif possible. Instead, check food through the doorwindow. • Use a timer. • Check progress at the shorterrecommended bake time. • Cakes are done when a wooden pick poked in the centercomes out clean. • Measure ingredients carefully; follow tested recipes precisely. Tips: Standard Baking TROUBLESHOOTING: STANDARD BAKE MODE Issue Possible Cause Solution Cookies burn on bottom Oven dooropened too often Set timerto shorterrecom- mended cook time, and check food when timerbeeps; use doorwindow to check food Wrong rack level used Change rack level Dark, heat-absorbing cookie sheets used Use shiny, reflective cookie sheets Cookies too brown Rack level too high Use lowerrack level Food put in oven during preheat Wait until oven preheats Cakes burn on sides/not done in center Oven temp too high Reduce oven temperature Dark, heat-absorbing pans used Use shiny, reflective cake pans Cakes cracked Oven temp too high Reduce oven temperature Cakes not level Oven/rack not level Level oven and rack as needed Pies burn on edges/not done in center Oven temp too high Reduce oven temperature Dark, heat absorbing pans used Use shiny, reflective pie pans Rack(s) overcrowded Use fewerpans Tips: Convection Baking • Generally, convection bake lets you prepare most foods at lowertemperatures forshorterperiods with superiorresults. • Typically, standard cook temperatures can be reduced by 25°F and cook times by10%. Baked goods have golden-brown crusts with flaky textures; meat has crispy exteriors and juicy interiors. • Some recipes, especially homemade, may need adjusting and testing when converting from standard to convection mode. First, prepare a dish in bake mode, then follow the convection guidelines. If the results are unsatisfactory, adjust one variable (e.g., cook time, rack level, temperature), and retest. Follow this pattern until results are satisfactory. Using Broil Mode WARNING In a broil mode, the oven operates as high as 555˚F. • To avoid burn injuries, turn the oven knob to BROIL, immediately put the food in the oven, and shut the door completely. • Broiling is for quick cooking (20 min. max.). - - The range is designed for residential cooking tasks only. - - Do not run the broiler more than 45 continuous minutes. After 45 minutes in broil mode, turn the oven off, and let it cool for 30 minutes before broiling again. 1. Adjust the rack to Level 4 or5 based on food thickness. 2. Turn the oven knob to BROIL. The oven ON indicatorilluminates; within1 minute, the broil burnerignites. (The bake burneris inactive in Broil mode.) 3. Immediately place the food in the oven, and close the door completely. IMPORTANT • Always use a broil pan and grill to catch excess fat and grease, and reduce spatter, smoke, and flare-ups. • The igniterforthe IR broil burnerglows orange periodically during normal broil operation. Using Convection Broil 1. Turn the oven knob to BROIL. The oven’s ON indicatorilluminates; within1 minute, the broil burnerignites.. 2. Place the food in the oven. and close the door. 3. Push the convection fan switch (control panel, left side). 4. When finished, remove the food, and turn off the oven and convection fan.

11 Operating the Range Tips: Broiling Broiling is a quick, flavorful way to cook such foods as steak, chicken, chops, hamburgers, and fish. It is normal and necessary forsome smoke to be present to give the food a broiled flavor. • Always set a timerwhen broiling. • Use a room-temperature broilerpan foreven cooking. • Use tongs ora spatula to handle meat. (Piercing meat with a fork lets natural juices escape.) • Broil food slightly overhalf the recommended time, then season and turn. Season the second side just before removing the food. • To prevent sticking, lightly oil the broilergrill. Foreasierclean- ing, remove the broilerpan and grill when you remove the food. Tips: Roasting • Dacor’s optional roasting pan works verywell, and two fit side by side in the oven. • Dacor’s optional V-shaped rack and broil/roast pan allow excel- lent aircirculation all around the food. • If using a cooking bag, foil tent, orothercover, use Convection Bake mode; adjust recipe time and temperature accordingly. • If using a meat thermometer: - - insert the probe halfway into the centerof the meat’s thick- est portion; (forpoultry, insert the probe between the body and leg into the thickest part of the innerthigh) - - keep the probe tip away from bone, fat, and gristle - - check the temperature with 1/3 of the time remaining, then insert the probe 1/2” fartherinto the meat, and take another reading. If the second reading is lower, keep cooking. • Let roasts sit15 – 20 minutes afterroasting to ease carving. • Roast times varywith the size, shape, and quality of the meat/ poultry. Toughercuts are best prepared in Bake mode and may need moist cooking techniques. Follow recipe directions. Tips: Multi-Rack Baking • Standard Bake mode is best formulti-rack baking. • Pizza, cake, cookies, biscuits, muffins, rolls, and frozen conve- nience foods) can be prepared on two orthree racks at once. • Typically, rack Levels 2, 4, and 6 are best formulti-rack baking. • When adapting a single-rack recipe to multi-rack baking, you may need to lengthen the bake time due to the greateramount of food in the oven. Tips: Bakeware • Dacor’s optional full-sized cookie sheets maximize use of rack space. (Contact CustomerAssurance to order.) • Forbest results, use the pan size/type specified in the recipe. • Bake cake, quick bread, muffins, and cookies in shiny, reflective pans forlight-golden surfaces. (Do not use old, darkened pans.) • Bake cookies, biscuits, and cream puffs on medium-gauge aluminum sheets with low sides. • Bake most frozen food in the original foil package on a cookie sheet. (Follow package directions.) • Forglass bakeware, reduce the recipe temperature by 25°F, except forpie oryeast bread. • Follow the standard recipe baking time forpie and yeast bread. • Warped, dented, stainless-steel, and tin-coated pans heat unevenly, giving inconsistent results. About High-Altitude Cooking At higheraltitudes (3000 feet/914 meters and above), foods tend to take longerto cook due to loweratmospheric pressure, so some recipes need adjusting. Usually, no adjustment is needed foryeast-risen goods, though let- ting the dough rise twice before the final pan-rise improves flavor. Try the adjustments below; note the changes that work best for you. Consulting a cookbook on high-altitude baking is also useful.

12 WARNING • To avoid personal injury, unplug the range, turn off all controls, and ensure all parts are cool before cleaning. • To avoid dangerous fumes and property damage, clean only the parts listed in this manual in the manner specified: - - Do not use abrasive/corrosive cleaners or applicators (e.g., steel wool, scouring pads) unless instructed to do so. Scrub with a sponge, soft cloth, fibrous/plastic brush, or nylon cleaning pad. - - Do not steam-clean the range. The electrical circuitry could be damaged. • Having repositioned the range after cleaning, shine a flashlight below to verify that the anti-tip foot engages the anti-tip bracket. Using Self-Clean Mode • This mode eliminates manual scrubbing. The oven functions better, and produces less smoke and odorwhen it is clean. • The oven doorlocks automatically during self-cleaning and cool-down. • Self-cleaning lasts about 21/2 hours. • Popping sounds are normal during self-cleaning; some smoke is normal during the first few self-cleaning cycles. • If powerfails during self-cleaning, the oven doorremains locked; self-cleaning resumes when poweris restored. • The light and convection fan switches are inactive when the dooris locked. WARNING • Wipe up residue with a damp cloth before self-cleaning. • Do not touch range surfaces during/immediately after self-cleaning. • Remove all foreign items (including oven racks) during self-cleaning. 1. Remove the racks, convection filter, and any otherforeign items from the oven. 2. Clean soil from the porcelain surfaces outside the doorgasket, rinse with a vinegar-watersolution, and wipe dry. (Heavily soiled areas may be cleaned with a plastic scouring pad.) 3. Dab the doorgasket with a solution of waterand mild soap. WARNING • Clean the gasket very gently. Any damage may compromise the seal needed for proper function. • Do not try to force the door open during self-cleaning. 4. Keep the kitchen well ventilated and the oven doorshut. 5. Push-turn the oven-control knob to CLEAN. - - The knob lights, indicating self-cleaning is active. - - The oven doorlocks itself within 20 seconds. Locking keeps the doorfrom being opened, preventing possible burn inju- ries due to high oven temperatures. To stop self-cleaning manually, turn off the oven. When self- cleaning is complete: • the doorunlocks when oven temp reaches 600°F (315°C). When opening the door, stand aside to let hot airescape safely. • Turn the oven off, orself-cleaning will restart when you close the oven door. • Usually, powdery ash remains on the oven floor. When the oven cools fully, wipe the ash up with a damp cloth orsponge. • Before using the oven, reinstall the convection filterand oven racks. General Cleaning Cleaning the Cooktop Forbest results, clean the cooktop afterevery use. Wipe up spills as soon as surfaces cool. Spills that dry on burnerparts are hard to remove. Certain foods (e.g., tomatoes, citrus juices, vinegar, alco- hol, milk) can marthe finishes if they remain forany length of time. IMPORTANT: The grates are exposed to very high temperatures and the weight of cookware. Parts are occasionally exposed to acidic food. These conditions discolorthe porcelain-enamel parts overtime. Careful maintenance slows the aging process. All cooktop cleaning begins by unplugging the range and waiting until all surfaces are cool to the touch. Cleaning the Grates and Spill Tray IMPORTANT: The cleaners listed below are forthe grates and spill tray ONLY. • Foreveryday cleaning, use a soft cloth ornon-abrasive pad with warm, soapywater. • Tough stains may be removed by applying such full-strength sprays as Simple Green™, Ajax™ All-Purpose Cleaner, orFor- mula 409™. To minimize wear, use the mildest cleanerneeded forthe job. • Forvery stubborn stains, use a mildly abrasive cleanerorappli- cator(e.g., Soft Scrub™, Bon Ami™, S.O.S.® , orothersoap-filled steel-wool pads). Use these cleanersverycarefullyand only occasionally; otherwise, theywill damage the finish. Dacoris not responsible forfinish damage from abrasive cleaners. Care and Cleaning

13 Cleaning the Oven Racks CAUTION To prevent damage, do not leave the oven racks inside the oven during self-cleaning. Clean these chrome-plated racks with detergent and hot water. Forheavy soil, use a scouring pad orthe rough side of a sponge with ample wateror1 cup of ammonia to 2 gallons of water. Cleaning the Convection Filter Clean the filterregularly. A clogged filterhinders aircirculation during convection cooking. WARNING • Handle the stainless-steel convection filter onlywhen it is cool. • Re-install the filter before using the oven; otherwise, the convection fan, which spins at high speed, will pose an injury hazard. 1. With fingertips, grasp the filter, and push up with yourthumb. The filterunclips from the horizontal bar. General Cleaning, cont. Cleaning the Burner Components WARNING Clean the igniters carefully. The porcelain is easily damaged. The igniters will not work properly orperhaps not at all if they and the burnerrings and bases are not clean. Afterdisassembling the burners, check all parts (including igniters) fordirt/grime. 1. Clean all around the igniter, including the metal top and por- celain base. (A firm toothbrush works well; do not use water; use a small amount of rubbing alcohol to dissolve grime.) 2. With a paperclip orneedle, carefully remove debris from the burner-ring holes. 3. Clean the burnerrings with window cleanerorrubbing alcohol and a plastic-bristle brush orfirm toothbrush. 4. Clean the burnercaps with a solution of mild detergent and hot water. 5. Rinse all parts in clean water; when all parts are thoroughly dry, reassemble the cooktop (see Pg. 7 fordetails). 6. Plug in the range, and test the burners. If the flame is uneven, verify properburnerassembly, and check fordirt/grime. If clicking is erratic, ensure the igniteris fully dry. If issues persist, call a Dacor-authorized service agent. Cleaning Porcelain Surfaces The oven chamber, oven-doorinterior, and spill tray have a porcelain-enamel finish. • Clean porcelain surfaces with mild detergent and hot water. • Rinse and drywith a soft cloth. • Do not use abrasives orcommercial oven cleaners. • Remove the rack supports to clean behind them more easily. Cleaning the Control Knobs and Trim Rings WARNING • Only use the cooktop with the knobs and trim rings in place. • Do not soak the knobs and rings in water or put them in a dishwasher. • Do not expose the knobs to direct heat. 1. Turn off the burners, and unplug the range. 2. Pull off the control knobs, and wipe the outsides of the trim rings with a soft, damp rag. 3. Wash the knobs in warm water and dish soap, then rinse and dry them thoroughly. 4. Align the opening on the back of the knob with the valve stem, and push the knob on until it stops.

14 Replacing the Oven Light WARNING • Before starting, ensure all range surfaces are cool enough to touch. • Do not use the oven without the lens in place; the lens protects the bulb from breakage due to high temperature and mechanical shock. • Replacing the lens without aligning the cutout with the light socket will damage the light fixture. • Do not remove the lens with a screwdriver, which is much more likely than a table knife to cause damage. • Replace the spent bulb with Dacor Part No. 108774 only; call Dacor Customer assurance to order the bulb; see the inside front cover for contact information). The ownershall change the bulb. If the light does not work, check Troubleshooting (Pg.16) before replacing it. IMPORTANT: Do not touch the new bulb with bare fingers. Halogen bulbs are sensitive to hand oils, which can shorten their lifespan. 1. Unplug the range, and remove the racks and rack support. 2. Supporting the lens with one hand, gently loosen it with a table knife, and pull it straight out. 3. Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket. 4. Wearing a glove, insert a new bulb in the socket. 5. Align the cutout on the lens’ inside rim with the light socket, and gently press the lens into place. 6. Replace the rack support and racks, and plug in the range. Care and Cleaning 2. Soak the filterin hot, soapywater, then rinse, and dry it fully. 3. With the mounting clips (open-end down) facing the rearwall, push the filterdown, hooking the clips onto the horizontal bar. Cleaning Stainless-Steel Surfaces CAUTION To avoid damage, always wipe stainless-steel “with” the grain. • Clean the range’s stainless-steel cladding with DacorStainless Steel Cleaner. (Contact DacorCustomerAssurance to reorder.) • Rinse and drywith a soft, lint-free cloth. • Apply a small amount of baby oil to restore lustre. Cleaning Brass/Chrome/Copper Surfaces Clean these surfaces as you would stainless steel. (See Cleaning Stainless-Steel Surfaces.) Cleaning the DoorGlass • Clean the glass with a solution of mild detergent and hot water. • Remove prints/smears with a mild glass cleaner. • Dry fullywith a soft, lint-free cloth. Cleaning the Broil Burner WARNING To avoid damaging the broil burner, do not scrub it or its igniter, or spray them with cleaner. The broil burneris self-cleaning.
