Cooking is an important part of family tradition here at Dacor. In 1933, Stan
Joseph opened a small appliance store in Northern California. Supported by his
devoted wife Florence, his innovative thinking led to the invention of the first
complete kitchen ventilation system and the first indoor electric barbecue.
In 1965, Stan and Florence Joseph founded Dacor and were later joined by their
two sons, Michael and Anthony.
Since our doors opened, Dacor has been a family operation committed to designing
and building exceptional appliances. "It is no coincidence that we've been very
successful in a business that focuses on the needs of families," explains CEO,
Michael Joseph. "We're an organization built on family, with a strong sense of
values. Today, each of our employees is a part owner of the company, a testimony
to our reverence for family, home, and community."
Working together to redefine the modern kitchen, the Dacor family has produced
an impressive array of industry firsts. Patented features abound throughout our
full line of cooking appliances. Features like an infrared gas broiler inside an
electric oven, a Pure Convection™ system for even heat distribution, a Butterfly
Bake Element™ for an extraordinary traditional bake, and extra-large Dacor
Greats™ that simplify cooking with large pots and pans.
Following in the footsteps of the Stan Joseph tradition, we are true pioneers.
Our flair for innovation is evident in everything we create, from our
top-of-the-line Epicure® 48" Range to the industry's first outdoor grill with
built-in halogen lights. And, our product line will only continue to grow.
