Other electric cooktops offer limitations in terms of cooking temperature, but the Distinctive Electric Cooktops are manufactured with infinite heat level settings allowing chefs to adjust the heat to the precise temperature they need for their style of cooking. Additionally, the multi-directional knobs allow users to easily set the temperature by turning in either direction to reach the desired heat setting - achieve either an immediate high heat, or quickly and easily hold a food-safe simmer.
Further enhancing the Cooktop’s performance, the Distinctive Electric Cooktops feature radiant ceramic elements. When the temperature is dialed-up for optimal cooking performance, element response time is instantaneous. The single- and dual-circuit elements help home chefs achieve their cooking goal, from melting chocolate in a small sauce pan, stir frying in a wok, to braising in a large Dutch oven. Dual-ring elements adapt to fit a variety of pot and pan dimensions.
Hand-in-hand with high-end performance is distinctive Dacor design. The Distinctive Electric Cooktops feature a scratch-resistant, easy-to-clean black, frameless ceramic glass top accented with brushed metallic knobs. The cooktops ship with a ceramic glass cleaning accessory tool to maintain a pristine cooktop surface.
Dacor always takes every measure to ensure safety in its appliances. The knob configuration along the side of the cooktop is designed to prevent home chefs from reaching across hot pots to adjust temperatures. A dedicated Hot Surface Safety Indicator Light for each element signals that the corresponding element is either on or has residual heat. The light will remain on until the element has cooled to a temperature that is safe to touch.
“The Distinctive Electric Cooktop provides homeowners with a stylish, high-performance alternative to premium gas cooktops and rangetops,” said Steve Joseph, President at Dacor. “Homeowners who want to experience luxury cooking now have access to a premium electric cooktop, and the price makes this cooktop a suitable choice for replacement products or as part of a kitchen renovation.”
The Distinctive Electric Cooktop offers the craftsmanship and value that consumers have come to expect from the Distinctive Series. The electric cooktops are available through authorized Dacor dealers and retailers with a UMRP of $899 (DECT365B) and $799 (DECT304B).
