Dacor introduced the Renaissance 36" and 30" gas cooktops that are designed with safety in mind. The new cooktops feature Illumina burner controls, which emit a cool blue glow to indicate when the burners are on. Each die-cast metal knob has a clear lens insert that emits the blue light from below with a rubberized grip for added comfort when setting the flame. The SimmerSafe Indicator light is an additional reminder that the cooktop is on although the flame may be barely visible during simmer.
The burners have a heat ouput of 18,000 BTU and have technology that automatically reignites the flame if it goes out unexpectedly for uninterrupted cooking. A SmartFlame feature reduces flame output under each grate finger, protecting the finish and longevity of the grates.
The new cooktops will be available in July.
