The 48-Inch French Door Refrigerator is distinguished by the iF DESIGN AWARD’s esteemed jury on the international stage.

Dacor is pleased to announce that the 48-Inch French Door Refrigerator is a winner of this year’s iF DESIGN AWARD, the world-renowned design prize, in the Kitchen Appliance category. Each year, the world’s oldest independent design organization, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH, organizes the iF DESIGN AWARD. The 48-Inch French Door Refrigerator won over the 132-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, with its brand-exclusive technologies and elegant design details. The appliance was distinguished among almost 11,000 entries submitted from 72 countries.


“We’re honored to be among this year’s honorees in the world-renowned iF DESIGN AWARD program,” says Geraldine Morrison, Head of Luxury Brand & Product Marketing. “The global recognition reinforces Dacor’s position as an industry leader that differentiates itself by offering appliances with precision performance features that elegantly balance form and function to elevate and simplify the everyday.” 


The latest addition to Dacor’s luxury built-in line-up, the 48-Inch French Door Refrigerator includes technological innovations that deliver increased connectivity and unmatched precision performance. The silver stainless-steel-wrapped interior with SteelCool™ works in tandem with Dacor’s Digital Inverter Technology and superior Digital Compressor to minimize temperature fluctuations and preserve fresh foods for longer. LED 3D Lighting elegantly illuminates the metal interior for a striking visual effect. A hidden touch control panel with SmartThings™ 3.0 allows users remote access to a variety of settings and features, including an interior camera with IQ RemoteViewTM that makes grocery shopping a breeze. The integration also helps to reduce energy consumption through AI Energy Mode which collects daily, weekly, and monthly trends to predict consumption and switches devices to Energy Saving Mode as needed. 


Dacor’s brand-exclusive FreshZone+™ and FreshZone™ drawers offer flexible and customizable storage solutions optimized for a range of needs. The FreshZone+™ drawer can be converted from fridge to freezer to preserve the ideal taste, texture, and flavor of stored foods while the FreshZone™ drawer can be optimized for everything from keeping fresh cheeses at the ideal serving temperature with the Dairy setting to serving up ice-cold beverages when set to the Chilled Drinks setting. Dacor’s 48-Inch French Door Refrigerator also includes little luxuries that go above and beyond standard refrigeration offerings. An auto-filling water pitcher allows users to infuse flavor while the Dual Icemaker produces both standard and slow-melting Whisky Ball IceTM for hosting in style.
