IRVINE, CA – February 9, 2021 – Dacor, the leading American luxury kitchen appliance brand, today announced the debut of new appliance offerings during the 2021 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), which is taking place virtually this year from February 9-11, 2021. This year’s line-up highlights the brand’s continued commitment in designing versatile appliance styles with customization offerings and innovative technology providing designers with bespoke products that enhance the kitchen experience.
Throughout Dacor’s 55-year tenure, the brand has remained not only an essential counterpart to the design community but has also evolved with the industry by creating multi-functional appliances that allow for a new level of quality, flexibility and personalization. The debut of their Transitional Style of cooking appliances, a combination of core design elements from the existing Contemporary and Professional products, expanded their distinguished portfolio of products to suit all kitchen designs, satisfying the needs of both consumers and designers. These latest introductions and new offerings reflect the ever-changing needs of the marketplace as well as demands of the home, which have evolved over the past year. At-home cooking was more prevalent than ever in 2020, and the kitchen has been transformed into a necessary sanctuary. This trend has further reinforced the need for appliances that are not only powerful and efficient, but also safe, smart and resilient for home cooks of every level, which Dacor has tapped into by integrating purposeful technology and connectivity across their illustrious portfolio with their SmartThings platform.
“Dacor continues to be the leading-edge luxury appliance brand – unrivaled in today’s connected kitchen,” said Scott Davies, Director of Marketing at Dacor. “We saw in 2020 the importance on creating meaningful spaces within the home and that will continue on into 2021 and years to come. We listened, learned and at KBIS 2021 are introducing products that offer innovation and high-quality design without compromising on reliability, performance and excellence, while simultaneously championing the kitchen as a space that encourages connection for culinary and design enthusiasts alike.”
