Building new home, need to equip kitchen w/dbl ovens. Have
not read any "owner" reviews regarding Dacor or Kitchen Aid.
Have you tried the search function at the bottom of the page (not at the top)? Just type in Dacor and quite a few threads will come up. I know because I've posted many times about my Dacor double wall ovens and gas cooktop. There should be ones for KitchenAid too.
There are lots of postings on the KA double ovens. People seem to have had issues with them overheating after using the self clean feature. Of course the self clean feature is nothing more than a super heated oven to begin with and puts a lot of strain on the components. I never use the self clean feature. We got a KA about two years ago and have had no issues. It is easy to clean up a spill if you take care of it within a day or two. The oven will last much longer if you avoid the self clean cycle. Think of it as driving your Kia at 100 MPH all the time and drag racing from light to light. It might be capable of that but don't you think it would wear it out much quicker.
My KA double ovens are 12 years old and I use self-clean all the time. Never a problem.
maire_cates: am new to this site, where at the bottom is the search entry box? i see only one at top of page.
The search at the bottom is in the "Main Appliance Page".
Click return to Appliance Forum to see the search box at the bottom of that page.
The other search at the top of this page is pretty useless.
