The tablet, located in the middle of the burner knobs, tilts upward 50 degrees for better viewing.

As is normal with a gas burner, the temperature of the tomato soup immediately dropped when I turned the burner level from medium to low once the soup reached 165 degrees Fahrenheit. The Dacor DYRP36D's soup temperature dropped lower than on other burners, then hovered around 150 degrees F.

The pictures on the left show two racks of biscuits I baked using the convection bake mode. The biscuits baked on the lower rack (bottom left picture) were browner than the ones that baked on a higher rack (top left picture). The pictures on the right are the color representations of the biscuits' browning.

I baked these biscuits in traditional baking mode. The results were even, though the biscuits in the front on the right were a bit paler than the others.
