Dacor Celebrates Golden Anniversary | Supplier Spotlight
Congrats to Dacor on 50 years of pro cooking technology innovations! You’ll find Dacor’s latest appliances in our showroom display – as well as in a range of Drury Design projects. Gail began working with Dacor in 1978, the year she began in the kitchen design business.
Here are few Dacor highlights from Dacor.com.
Founded in 1965 by Stanley Joseph, Dacor is in its third generation as a family-owned business. For his contributions to the industry, Stanley Joseph was inducted as a charter member of the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) Hall of Fame in 1989; his sons were both inducted in 2004, making them the only family with three NKBA Hall of Fame inductees.
Dacor Pro Cooking Technology Innovations
Always innovating, Dacor brings pro cooking technology home with features like these.
DacorMatch™ Color System: Allows the most fashion-forward home chefs to choose virtually any color for their appliances.
Discovery iQ™ 30″ Wall Oven: The world’s first wall oven to feature the integrated Discovery iQ Controller for Android.
Renaissance® 30-inch Induction Range: An induction range with four Induction SimmerSear Zones for powerful and precise heat distribution.
Discovery WineStation®: Enjoy wine just as the vintner intended for up to 60 days without the loss of flavor or natural aroma.
“The ultra-premium kitchen market is continually evolving,” said President Joseph. “Our goal is to design and manufacture products that will remain relevant and useful to the home chef over the next half-century. For example, our Discovery iQ™ products enable customers to wirelessly update their appliances with new features as we introduce them.”
Dacor iQ Remote App
The Dacor iQ Remote App is enabled to accept voice commands. This new component allows the unparalleled ability to monitor and control connected Dacor appliances with the Dacor iQ Remote App.
Exclusive Dacor Features
Other exclusive Dacor features include . . .
SoftShut™ drawers that quietly pull the drawers closed with ease, white aluminum interiors, a blue LED glass touch control panel and Dacor’s distinctive BeadBlast™ finish on all stainless shelves and handles, which prevents fingerprints and scratching.
The DualStack burners atop the new Renaissance Pro Style Gas Ranges can dial up to 18,000 BTUs for superb searing – and yet cool down to a béchamel-friendly 800 BTU simmer without skipping a beat.
Two GlideRacks™ extend fully beyond the oven cavity, which is generous enough to accommodate commercial-sized baking sheets.
Even the oven door adds a measure of elegance; its SoftShut™ hinges pull the door gently closed to prevent slamming, out of respect for chefs and delicate soufflés.
“These are superbly engineered ranges that are built right here in Los Angeles,” notes Dacor President Steve Joseph. “The passion that’s gone into their creation is matched by the passion of the home chefs who will be making these new products a centerpiece in their kitchens.”
