Sub-Zero Alternative Refrigerator

When you want the best refrigerator available, you go for a Sub-Zero; or at least that’s what most people thought until the release of the Dacor Discovery refrigeration line. Dacor’s new line is heating up (or cooling down?) the competition.

Dacor’s new Discovery line of refrigerators is proving to be a top contender in the high-end refrigeration market. The Dacor Discovery Refrigerator includes all the notable features of the Sub-Zero refrigerator, and has some very cool extras like the “GlideShelf” and “BeadBlast” finish.

As you can see above, the Dacor Discovery and Sub-Zero refrigerators share many features. If price is a concern, we think that the Dacor Discovery is a great alternative for the price. The Sub-Zero will offer a more comprehensive warranty, but Dacor Discovery’s warranty is fairly comparable, especially when you consider your savings on the purchase price. No matter your choice, both brands are great high-end refrigeration products.

And one more added bonus, if you need Dacor Repair while it’s under warranty you can rely on Desertech Appliance Service, based right here in the desert. Desertech has been servicing Sub-Zero here in the Coachella Valley for over 26 years but if your refrigerator is less than 2 years old, you’ll have to wait for service for a company based out of Los Angeles.
