Even at a time it was acquired by Samsung Electronics, Dacor, founded in 1965, was considered to have a high level of technology particularly in the areas of ovens and cooktops that are used commonly by American households.
In the refrigerator category, however, Dacor was found to have some grounds to cover. In particular, it failed to apply Internet-of-Things technology for refrigerators.
Samsung believed that Dacor could take a leap further if Samsung's smartphone technologies and patents in refrigerators are applied for Dacor models. The Modernist Collection that Dacor showed off on March 15 featured a full-fledged combination between the strengths of Dacor and Samsung Electronics.
The induction cooktop uses virtual flame to display the flame's strength. The hood is interconnected with the cooktop, turning itself on automatically when the cooking process begins.
