We have been a Dealer for most of the brands and find it is most fun with opinions on Viking / Wolf / Dacor / DCS / Thermador / Capital / Monogram /

I think Dacor is 2nd to SubZero/Wolf. Did their warranty until they switched to All Brand for a parts distributor.

Putting a 30" oven in a 36" range is brilliant! Who would want a bigger oven in a bigger range? Tell those bigger-oven-wanting customers that greed is one of the 7 deadly sins and they should learn to be happy with what Dacor offers. The filler panels on the side of the door is wonderful and the available Brass or Copper trim on the door handles makes them look great as well. I especially admire their tenacity to keep the same design for 15 years, it shows they got it right the first time and to hell with anyone who wants "modern" styling. Viking is doing great selling the same out-dated ranges, why can't Dacor? If they are 2nd to Sub-Zero (agreed) it is a far-distant 2nd place.

I honestly don't see how they stay in business.

What you got against All Brand? Don't you like the convenience of ordering a part once and receiving a second un-ordered part two weeks later? Or receiving another customer's order packed in with yours? It makes getting packages fun again.

Couldn't deal with their accounting dept., same with Marcone. Since dealing with APD in Texas it almost makes me want to go back doing Dacor. And you can't beat Dolly & co. at Mid Atlantic.
