Dacor Discovery IQ Android Smart Oven Demo at CES 2013 (Video)

January 15, 2013

At the 2013 CES, Dacor showcased its upcoming 30-inch Android-equipped Discovery smart oven. The new Discovery Wall Oven connects the kitchen to the home via the Discovery IQ Controller, which is basically a built-in 7-inch LCD touchscreen WiFi tablet that’s powered by a Samsung 1GHz Processor with PowerVR SGX 540 GPU, 512MB DDR2 RAM, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Chefs and cooks of all experience levels can navigate the intuitive user interface to access the Dacor Discovery IQ Cooking Application and Guide while simultaneously downloading other popular applications through the Google Play Store, researching new recipes or viewing cooking video demonstrations wirelessly through a home Wi-Fi network. Check out our demo video above and learn more about the innovative oven, including pricing and availability, below. [direct YouTube link]

From Dacor:

The Discovery IQ Controller with interactive cooking application and guide can also be accessed remotely by the home chef throughout the home with their own Wi-Fi enabled tablet or smart phone. The IQ eliminates the guesswork associated with preparing popular dishes and family recipes by way of a pre-programmed guide. It enables users to prepare a wide range of dishes to perfection with the touch of a finger. Simply select the desired recipe from the display menu, insert the dish, initiate the program and relax as the oven takes care of the rest. Additionally, when the desired cook time has been reached, the oven will place the dish on warming mode, keeping food warm until ready to serve.

With Dacor’s proprietary IQ application, the kitchen takes on a life of its own. Once a dish is ready to serve, the IQ will notify the chef via text message or push notification. Should the wall oven encounter a problem or require maintenance, IQ will notify the owner with an error message and an automated report will be sent to Dacor for troubleshooting. To ensure optimal IQ and oven performance levels, automatic system updates and self-diagnostics will be downloaded directly to the IQ Controller via Wi-Fi from the Dacor server.

By combining oven technology with the insight of the IQ Controller and cooking application, Dacor is empowering the novice cook to perform at expert levels with a simple swipe of a finger. With control features such as Guided Cooking, Quick Start Guide, My Recipe Box, and Slow Cook Mode, home chefs are almost guaranteed to cook all their favorite dishes to perfection.

In addition to the exclusive IQ Controller, the new Discovery 30″ Wall Oven is built with core features signature to Dacor, such as a 4.8 cubic foot oven cell capacity to prepare large poultry or for multi-rack cooking; exclusive Four-Part Pure Convection System which reduces cooking time, provides superior heat distribution and eliminates flavor transfer; GreenClean Steam Technology which cleans light build-up in 30 minutes without the use of high heat or harsh chemicals; and GlideRacks equipped with a convenient easy-pull handle which allow the home chef to move heavier dishes in and out of the oven easily. And to top it all off, personalize your Discovery Wall Oven by selecting one of two handle options, the professional Epicure stainless steel handle, or the proprietary Dacor integrated stainless steel handle, for a flush contemporary look.

The new Discovery 30″ Wall Ovens with exclusive IQ Controller are targeted for production during the Summer of 2013 – $7,499 UMRP for a 30″ Double Wall Oven and $4,499 UMRP for a 30″ Single Wall Oven. Discovery IQ Wall Ovens will be available at specialty kitchen appliance retailers, Pacific Sales, Lowes, and internationally through distributors in Canada and Mexico.
