Dacor. Does anyone LIKE this brand?
Internet reviews on Dacor products are incredibly negative.
Can GardenWeb balance this out or are they really that unreliable? I have the opportunity to purchase a used range (ERD36) at a deep discount. It LOOKS fine. I have no way of knowing if it is about to blow a circuit board, or the oven window is about to explode. These are the most common complaints on the internets.
I certainly don't require a gourmet 36" stove for my kitchen remodel... but it sure would be nice if it managed to work without blowing up my home. If this doesn't work, we will go with a more mainstream brand of 36 or 40 inch range, spending under $3,000. This one retails for $8 and after I rent a truck and bribe some friends to help pick it up, will probably cost me around $2500.
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
