IRVINE, CA – August 18, 2020 – Dacor, the leading American luxury home appliance brand, today announced the debut of its new Transitional style of cooking appliances, a combination of core design elements from the existing Contemporary and Professional products. The introduction of Transitional marks the third distinct style for the Dacor brand, incorporating hand-made craftsmanship and a touch of integrated technology with all appliances being Wi-Fi enabled and connected through SmartThings, while boasting the high-quality functionality and performance Dacor is best known for. With this additional, Dacor now offers three different styles of cooking, satisfying the needs of both consumers and designers.
