30"/27" Millennia Double Wall Ovens
Not all bad, but some ongoing issues!
We purchased this oven when we renovated our kitchen in 2008. The first oven, as we were told by the sales person, was a return due to fit in the original purchaser's kitchen. Told they bought 2, returned them without using them, and purchased another that fit. Not true it appeared, as the oven never worked correctly. During the pre-heating after installation it wouldn't shut off. Pulled the circuit breaker to stop it and called the dealer. After one service attempt to replace the cooling fan, got diagnostics. Got a brief argument but eventually the dealer agreed to take it back and provide a new (in box) replacement. The new oven originally worked well but took some getting use to.
We had one service repair in 2013 to replace the top oven door gasket. Normal timing we were told but believed it was premature. Our complaint, top oven was not cooking properly and the temperature was incorrect. Things were burning, mainly bread and other baking/cakes. etc. The clock never worked properly and drops about 5 minutes a month, so we reset it even though it was reported when we called for the temperature issue. Stopped calling the dealer about it. My wife would like to replace it but at nearly $5K when we bought it 5 years ago, not likely. Next step is to call Dacor to fix or replace it.

Great Look and Cooking Results everytime
I bought my Dacor double oven after months of research, replacing a Thermador double oven. Four years later I still love it!! First I want to touch on the beauty of this product. My kitchen cabinets are in serious need of updating, but you know how that goes. The Dacor oven has such a cool sleek look that my kitchen somehow looks ok. I cook dinner every night and this oven could not be any easier. My favorite thing is the temperature probe. Any type of meat can be cooked to perfection using that thing. Roasts, chicken, pork all done perfectly. It cracks me up when my husband raves that the prime rib is better at home than at a restaurant. If I'm unsure of what to do with an item or just out of ideas, I use the Dacor guide. You can't fail. I make cream puffs and souffles perfectly by hitting the corresponding number and the oven sets everything up. I am not a person who really likes to cook or bake, but I do it, and this oven makes me good at it. I also want to point out the best part for me, Self Cleaning !! This really self cleans. Remove the racks, hit the clean button, and it cleans itself perfectly. Sometimes I will find a little powder left behind after a really dirty oven, but I wipe it once and it is back to looking brand new. Amazing! This Dacor oven really does whats stated in the description. I know you will love it as much as I do.

Beautiful product that does everything but play music!
This double oven is just great. The menu selections make cooking foolproof. We added the glide-out racks and they are just perfect. There is a temperature probe too, and it works great. We've had our ovens for 2 years now with no problems what-so-ever. Our whole kitchen is DACOR and we couldn't be happier with their products.
