COSTA MESA, Calif. - October 14, 2010 - Dacor®, a market leader in the design and manufacture of luxury kitchen appliances, today introduced the new Distinctive 36" Gas Cooktop.  A stylish design, with remarkable craftsmanship, the Distinctive Cooktop will be a striking addition to any kitchen, while offering the performance and value that consumers expect from the Distinctive Series. 

The Distinctive 36" Gas Cooktop is the first Dacor product developed in collaboration with BMW Group DesignworksUSA, a company well known for its forward-thinking innovation in design development and selective use of color, materials and finishes.  A fellow California-based company, BMW Group DesignworksUSA has worked with many of the world's great brands and is an international leader in design strategy, premium design development, and brand communication.  Now, BMW Group DesignworksUSA brings its expertise to Dacor and its Distinctive 36" Gas Cooktop, designed to bring a unique style to any kitchen while enhancing the appearance of both countertops and cabinetry alike.

"Dacor has a well-earned reputation for providing the best cooking experience through meticulous attention to detail," said Holger Hampf BMW Group DesignworksUSA Director of Product Design.  "Together through collaboration with DesignworksUSA, Dacor creates an aesthetic which balances the environment of the home kitchen with the expectations of the professional for the highest functionality and reliability."

BMW Group DesignworksUSA recognizes that style and appearance are equally as important as an appliance's features and functions, and has ensured that each stylish design detail also serves a purpose.  The Cooktop is designed with ergonomic angled controls for ease of use and IlluminaTM Indicator Lights that glow in Dacor's signature flame-blue when a burner is on, providing a modern, eye-catching look while making kitchen safety a priority.  The design team employed a strict proces of direction, design and development ensuring that the Distinctive Cooktop was developed with both creativity and quality.

"The new Distinctive 36" Gas Cooktop was designed to meet the needs of home chefs, while also appealing to today's value-conscious homeowner," said Mauricio Roca, Director of Product Development at Dacor.  "The Distinctive Cooktop includes signature Dacor design touches in an affordable, high-performance appliance, providing value along witha professional-quality culinary experience."

Full of features that provide professional-grade performance, the Distinctive Cooktop is an amenity that enhances a kitchen's overall look, while supplying consumers with endless culinary possibilities.  The Cooktop is equipped with five burners to meeet every cooking need, including one SimmerSearTM burner with melting feature, which allows superior precision and control for the home chef with the option to simmer, sear or sauté at ultra-high or ultra-low temperatures (up to 18,000 BTUs).  To address other cooking needs, the Cooktop also has two sealed gas burners that provide 12,000 BTUs and two sealed gas burners that provide 9,000 BTUs.

The new cooktop features Dacor's exclusive PermaCleanTM Finish, a scratch-resistant surface that can handle tough scrubbing so that baked on even burnt-on messes clean up with ease, leaving the Cooktop surface beautiful.  In additon to the exclusive PermaClean finish, the Distinctive Cooktop has a one-piece spill basin to further ensure that clean up will be a breeze.

The industry leading Continuous Platform Grates provide for the optimum cooking surface for larger pots while allowing for multiple pans side-by-side.  Additionally, the Perma-FlameTM instant re-ignition feature automatically re-lights a burner immediately if it goes out, ensuring continuous heating and a nearly effortless cooking process.

Ensuring that the Distinctive Cooktop is fully functional for the life of the kitchen, Dacor has equipped all burners with Smart FlameTM technology, which ensures the burner flames do not directly contact the fingers of the porcelain-coated cast iron grates, helping to extend the life of the grates.

Cutting edge features and streamlined design combine to offer new high-performance, energy efficient appliances from Dacor

COSTA MESA, Calif. - September 16, 2010Dacor®, a market leader in the design and manufacture of luxury kitchen appliances, today introduced the new DistinctiveTMRenaissanceTM and Integrated 24" Dishwashers.  These new appliances are a beautiful combination of style, performance, and value.

With unsurpassed craftsmanship, the Distinctive Dishwasher gives customers the designer look they desire in an affordably-priced, feature-rich appliance.  With features like the recessed hidden handle and electronic one-touch controls on the front panel, the Distinctive Dishwasher brings a modern and sophisticated design to any kitchen.  Designed to handle any mess, the Distinctive Dishwasher also features seven highly effective wash zones to ensure the entire load gets completely clean, while four wash cycles allow the dishwasher to tackle everything from simple rinses to seriously baked-on messes with ease.

Further enhancing the streamlined design, Dacor equipped the Distinctive Dishwasher and the Renaissance Dishwasher with its PrintFreeTM stainless steel finish that resists smudges and fingerprints so the dishwasher exterior will remain spotless, just like the dishes inside.

"The latest dishwashers from Dacor provide the ultimate in style, efficiency and value," said Steve Joseph, Vice President of Marketing at Dacor.  "With state-of-the-art features, the reliability customers expect from Dacor, our new new dishwashers are high-performance, environmentally friendly appliances that will bring Dacor's signature style to a wide range of homeowners."

Using a dishwasher should not add work to a kitchen clean-up routine.  The unique EasyLoadTM rack design on the new dishwashers provides endless loading flexibility.  With the option to load up to 14 plus place settings and the highest loading height available in the market to  make room for pots, pans and platters of all sizes, the dishwashers will accommodate large gatherings just as effortlessly as everyday meals.

Knowing that safety features are a small detail that make a huge impage, Dacor has equipped the Renaissance and Integrated Dishwashers with its exclusive FamilySafeTM electronic locking system and the Distinctive Dishwasher with FamilyLockTM mechanical locking system to ensure a child cannot open the dishwasher door while the dishwasher is running.  With the WhisperWashTM system, which ensures the dishwashers run at only 49 dBA, users will wonder if the appliance is running at all.

The aesthetically pleasing style and design features make the Distinctive, Renaissance and Integrated Dishwashers beautiful, and with releable features users can count on, they become a dependable addition to the kitchen.

According to ENERGY STAR®, the average family spends $2,200 each year on energy bills.  Upgrading to an ENERGY STAR® rated appliance can save more than $165 over the lifetime of the product.  Dacor's ENERGY STAR® rated refrigerators are 20% more efficient than non-compliant refrigerators.  And beginning this spring, all of the U.S. states and territories are running programs designed to help consumers replace old, inefficient appliances with new ENERGY STAR® qualified models.  Refrigerators are among the most popular appliances receiving rebates through the program, with savings ranging from $45-$500, with most being about $100-$150.

"Dacor is committed to providing environmentally friendly products that will lower carbon emissions and help consumers reduce their energy costs," said Steve Joseph, Vice President of Marketing at Dacor.  "Since our company started in 1965, Dacor has been working to maximize the efficiency of our products and implementing sustainable business practices, long before it was popular to do so.  In addition to refrigerators, Dacor also offers ENERGY STAR® qualified dishwashers, which use much less water per cycle when compared to non-qualified models."

The 36" Refrigerator consumes less energy than a 75-watt light bulb and the exterior water and ice dispenser will minimize the amount of time the doors are open, leading to even greater energy savings.

THE COOL DETAILS

The 36" Freestanding French Door Refrigerator features stainless steel doors which extend over the hinges to give the front a clean look.  With an external dispenser, serving up fresh, cool, filtered ice and water at the touch of a button, the convenient French Door provides full access to the interior.  Boasting impressive interior storage, the in-door gallon bins are large enough to hold cartons of milk and juice and slide out shelving allows accessibility to all items in the refrigerator.

The easy-to-navigate, electronic panel glows in Dacor's signature blue, displays internal temperature and alerts owners when the water filter needs to be changed.  There is no need to lose precious energy opening the refrigerator door, the external dispenser serves up fresh, cool, filtered ice and water at the touch of a button.

The bottom freezer drawer features fully enclosed baskets that keep frozen food organized and stop food and ice from falling through.  The drawer glides open effortlessly with a rack-and-pinon system for easy access to the items in the rear.  The freezer drawer includes upper and lower freezer baskets and dividers.  With fresh food storage on top and the freezer underneath, users have better access to the items that are used more frequently.

An innovative modular design system allows owners to customize each model to fit their personal style with either the professional, classic Epicure handles or the more contemporary Millennia® handles.

The 36" Refrigerator now features Sabbath Mode, which allows the door to be opened or closed at any time without concern of directly turning on or off any lights or features and will begin rolling out to authorized Dacor dealers in April 2010.
