KBIS Preview - Dacor Gets Distinctive

This week I’m gearing up for the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas, from April 26 – 29.  In anticipation I'll be exploring some exhibitors I'm looking forward to seeing.

After a one year absence, Dacor is returning to KBIS, and with a brand new addition to its line of high-end kitchen appliances. The family‐owned manufacturer just launched its "Distinctive" line, aimed at the cook who's looking for the high‐performance functionality Dacor is known for, combined with affordable luxury.

The Distinctive line features a lean but effective collection of appliances:
  • 30" single & 30" double wall oven
  • 30" dual fuel range
  • 30" & 36" gas rangetop / 36" gas cooktop  
  • 24" dishwasher

Named for the founding company (Distinctive Appliances, Inc.) from over 45 years ago, this new line doesn't sell short the design I've come to know and love about Dacor.  Have a look at the placement of the knobs on the cooktop above.  Rather than taking up cooking space along the side, they're located at the front where they're convenient to the cook.  Even the controls on the dishwasher (left) are designed to imitate the knobs on the cooktops and ranges.  Slick!  Performance and efficiency is also up to the usual Dacor standard.

Dacor will be featuring the Distinctive line of appliances at KBIS, booth C4529
