Any home chef knows that a seamless cooking experience is never guaranteed, however, the Renaissance Gas Cooktop has several features included to help make your cooking experience as easy as possible. Since the burners are the heart and soul of any cooktop, Dacor equipped them with the latest technologies. From the Illumina™ Burner Controls, which let you know when the burners are on, to SmartFlame™ technology, a unique feature that reduces the temperature under the fingers of the grates to extend the life of the grate and protect the finish, the Renaissance Gas Cooktop is truly cutting edge. Another key feature is Dacor's Perma-Flame™ technology, which automatically reignites the flame if it goes out unexpectedly.
Perhaps the most appealing feature - aside from the easy clean-up - is the cooktop's SimmerSear™ burners, which were designed with the home chef in mind and deliver professional-level accuracy over a wide range of cooking temperatures. The burners provide up to 18,000 BTUs - something that residential kitchens have not always had access to in traditional cooktops. Each burner is designed to accommodate your every need, whether the recipe requires an ultra-low heat to melt butter or chocolate or a fast-rolling boil to cook pasta.
Its features alone make the Renaissance Gas Cooktop a standout appliance, but the look of the appliance is also worth raving about. The cooktop is low-profile, with ergonomically designed die-cast metal knobs available in stainless steel or black. It features a contemporary square design and extra-wide Continuous Platform Grates, which Dacor was the first to develop. The grates provide generous space for any oversized pot, pan or wok without overcrowding the cooking surface. And to make clean-up as easy as it was to cook your meal, the cooktop has a one-piece spill basin with an exclusive bead-blast finish for extra protection against abrasive cleansers.
The Renaissance 36" Gas Cooktop features five burners with (2) 12" grates and (1) 10" grate, and the 30" model features four burners with (2) 12" grates. Both models are compatible with all Dacor ventilation systems, including the downdraft raised ventilation systems. Optional accessories include a searing grill, griddle, wok ring, and the 7-piece Signature Gourmet Cookware Collection, giving you the tools to create just about any dish you can dream up! To keep things simple, Dacor offers all optional cooking tools, accessories and kitchen gadgets through the company's online store, www.everythingdacor.com. Purchasing and perusing the latest in cookware has never been more convenient.
