Dacor Modernist Collection Launch Event





AUGUST 9, 2017







We had an amazing private launch party for Dacor’s exquisite Modernist Collection. It’s not every day that a 50-year-old brand takes on the challenge to revolutionize the appliance category with a craftsman’s approach blending innovative technology and thoughtful design.


The evening was hosted by the creative sibling duo, Danielle & Laura – creators of The New Potato – a NYC based online magazine that continuously blurs the lines between food, fashion, design and media.


The ladies epitomize the art of modern entertaining with their affinity for throwing epic at-home dinner parties.


The Dacor Modernist collection was created to cater to this art – reinventing the kitchen with visionary new cooking and cooling experiences that deliver breakthrough innovations and thoughtful design for extraordinary performance making entertaining effortless.


Guests were able to explore the simply stunning appliances from the Modernist collection.

Experiencing breakthrough innovation.

A collection comprised of true-flush column refrigeration featuring Cocktail Ice™ with push-to-open doors in graphite stainless steel; a dishwasher that operates in near silence with the industry’s widest targeted cleaning zones; powerful and smart cooktops that cover all culinary styles (with induction, gas and pro rangetops); a duel-fuel steam range offering the versatility of steam cooking and power of convection; a speed oven combining convection microwave + steam + 4-part dual convection cooking; topped off with superior ventilation hoods, a premium microwave drawer and a warming drawer keeping any culinary masterpiece at its best – all thoughtfully designed with innovative technology and WiFi connectivity. With so much more details to take in…Dacor Cocktail Ice™ with a crafted drink became absolutely necessary.

The only proper way to introduce the first freezer in the market to produce cocktail ice is with

Craft Cocktail Stations.

It was definitely a great way to get the night started by having guests meander through our massive showroom tasting inventive cocktails from some of our favorite Brooklyn-based liquor brands.

[It also made it slightly difficult to end the night.]

For those not into mixed drinks – Brooklyn Brewery stayed chilled on our ice bar while LaCroix offered up a multitude of non-alcoholic bubbly options.  Happy Hearts Wine put a smile on the face of any wine snobs in attendance with a delightful offering of Prosecco, crisp Pinot Grigio, elegant Rosé and a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon.


Pulled double duty for the night with 2 cocktail stations.  First a summery Watermelon Mint Shine made from their corn whiskey moonshine. Then a second station serving Bourbon Tea Punch, taking classic sweet tea up a few notches.


Took lemonade to a new level of refreshing potency, serving their Bees Knees cocktail in which more than one glass would literally bring you to your knees.


Decided to eliminate the torture of choosing between vodka & cranberry or vodka & orange juice, and just double fisted both into their Vodka Madras cocktail – providing one potent choice.

Transform ingredients into signature dishes and meals into memories.

Make every meal a masterpiece.

A menu of creative tasteful bites had our guests savoring every moment. Do not be intimidated by the presentation, every dish served can be achieved at home with our recipe cards + the extraordinary performance and intuitive interfaces of the Dacor Modernist collection, rendering this level of meal preparation practically effortless.

How about a quick rundown of the evening…
