Family-owned Dacor showed off its new line of appliances recently at the 2009 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Atlanta. Among the appliances on display was the Energy Star qualified Epicure 36-inch Freestanding French Door Cabinet-Depth Bottom Freezer Refrigerator. The refrigerator saves time and energy with a 20-percent energy efficient compressor, and is stated to use less energy than a 60-watt light bulb.
An easy-to-use control panel not only monitors the temperature of the freezer along with the refrigerator, but also offers some convenient options. Fast Ice automatically cools the freezer section for 24 hours, allowing for the included icemaker to produce more ice. Max Cold is another 24-hour timed mode that lowers the overall temperature. The mode is a convenient option for when the door has been opened for prolonged periods, or when loading warm foods. Other control panel options include a temperature alarm, an absent mode, and a door alarm.
The refrigerator is designed to complement your lifestyle and kitchen decor. A modular design system allows for the customization of handles to match other Dacor appliances (including the Millennia and Preference series). A large deli drawer spans the width of the refrigerator and is able to hold full-size deli trays. Fruits and vegetables can be stored in the two individually adjustable humidity-controlled crisper drawers. Energy-saving capabilities and customizable options define this feature-friendly refrigerator from Dacor.
