It’s 2019 and connection is king. In an age where everything from your garbage can to your dinner plates is making smart decisions for you, having appliances that make life easier no longer simply a perk; it’s expected. Our friends at Dacor are reinventing the kitchen with innovative cooking and cooling appliances that creatively combine utility, technology, and modern design.
The Modernist collection is perhaps Dacor’s most evolved and ambitious series yet. This game-changer of an oven offers sleek design and high-caliber performance. Whether utilizing its namesake feature Steam Assist — which delivers the right amount of steam to perfectly cook meat or an artisan loaf of bread — or reducing cook time with the Dual Four-Part Convection, this oven will cook evenly and quickly, every time. The wifi-enabled seven-inch LCD control panel allows for seamless pre-programming and accessible recipes that are just a tap of the touch screen away.
The SmartThings connected platform can be easily integrated and allows a user to preheat the oven, as well as monitor temperature and cooking status — all from a smartphone. The features list is lengthy, including things you never know you needed, such as Chef Mode, which delivers expert cooking advice on everything from temperatures and timing to optimum rack settings, right from the oven’s display panel. The steam technology is also allows for faster, safer oven cleaning, without having to use harsh chemicals or extreme heat.
This appliance is what refrigerator-sized dreams are made of. As with all Dacor products, it combines form and function — while throwing in a ton of incredible extras. The best-in-class food preservation feature maintains freshness at a constant temperature and a high-humidity environment that tops any other leading brand. The Precise Cooling and Triple Cooling Technology means that food is kept fresher for longer by preventing the mixture of moist refrigerator air and dry freezer air — without compromising energy efficiency. Perfect for entertaining, this fridge makes both standard ice cubes and larger, slow-to-melt cubes for cocktails. The hidden touch display panel and interior 3D lighting are just a couple of the sophisticated finishes that places this refrigerator into the luxury appliance category.
Everyone loves the convenience of a microwave, but when it comes to designing the perfect modern kitchen, we don’t always like the way they look. The Modernist Microwave-In-A-Drawer provides the solution: hiding this unsightly appliance away behind a sleek, flush façade. The automatic drawer allows for easy loading and unloading with the push of a button, and the microwave comes with 10 preset modes for advanced settings, which include melt, warm, and soften. And did we mention this microwave is smart? The smart moisture sensor automatically adjusts cooking times and power levels based on interior humidity levels. It also comes with an automatic start feature that can be set to begin cooking at any time of day. For chefs who like to make it a bit more complicated, this Dacor microwave has multiple sequence cooking, which can be set so that four cooking sequences — each with different power levels — automatically transition from one to the other without an extra touch needed.
These three Modernist appliances from Dacor were made to ignite your creativity in the kitchen and inspire unique entertaining and culinary experiences. They all come with design options to appeal to your aesthetic and are sure to excite both the master chef and the home cook.
