NEW YORK, NY – March 15, 2017 – Dacor, a leading American brand among luxury home appliance makers, today introduced The Modernist Collection, a full line of revolutionary new kitchen products.
The Modernist Collection blends leading technology and innovation with luxury aesthetics and premium features to create a suite of appliances that champion the affluent kitchen as the most important place to connect and create unforgettable meals. The collection also takes stainless steel in an exciting new direction, with a dramatic graphite color that accentuates and elevates the sophistication of any kitchen.
Dacor’s products represent and reflect the changing role of the luxury home kitchen. With consumers envisioning the kitchen as a place to entertain and connect with friends and family, as well as prepare awe-inspiring meals, The Modernist Collection presents a new vision for what a luxury kitchen can be. It is an open concept showcase of exquisite and sleek design, surprising and delightful features, and superior and innovative performance.
Infused with authentic and durable, yet luxurious materials; simple, clean design lines; and a seemingly endless array of consumer interaction points that make every product experience memorable and fun, The Modernist Collection suite encompasses the entire kitchen appliance set including column refrigeration, ranges, ovens, cooktops and other innovative products.With alluring LED lighting, a striking stainless steel interior and industry leading cooling technology, Dacor’s Modernist collection of Column Refrigeration is a dramatic showcase of innovation and beauty. Featuring a full portfolio of product sizes, including 18”, 24”, 30” and 36” to fit with any kitchen design, the columns exhibit exquisite style and an impressive feature set. Tall panel-ready doors with a true flush design ensure a seamless blending within the kitchen cabinetry; when opened they reveal a full stainless interior, with glass / aluminum bins and LED lighting. Intuitive features like the Dual Ice Maker and Flex Zone Drawer can keep up with any party. The column’s interior minimizes insulation thickness to ensure maximum capacity with no impact on the outer dimensions. Dedicated Precise Cooling maintains minimal temperature fluctuation inside the column to improve food preservation.
In January 2017, Dacor’s column refrigeration earned the coveted ENERGY STAR Emerging Technology Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), recognizing the energy-saving features and more environmentally-conscious types of refrigerant used in new models.
Available in two sizes, Pro Dual Fuel Steam Range features highly sophisticated design and performance.
