Dacor® Releases the "Smartest" Oven

Wi-Fi Connected Discovery™ iQ Wall Oven Allows for Elevated Levels of Cooking Control and Communication

City of Industry, Calif. September 19, 2013


The connected kitchen is no longer a thing of the future. Dacor®, the leader in luxury kitchen appliance innovations introduces its Discovery™ iQ 30" Wall Oven, the world's first wall oven to feature the integrated Discovery iQ Controller for Android™. Coined the "smartest" oven by CNET, its control panel features Wi-Fi connectivity and mobile technology for cooking control from any room in the home via any Android™ or iOS smart phone or tablet.

"The Discovery iQ Wall Oven and Controller is an innovative and intelligent breakthrough," states Steve Joseph, president of Dacor. "Mobile technology continues to advance rapidly, and we are thrilled to bring this cutting-edge technology into the kitchen in a meaningful way."

The Discovery iQ Wall Oven empowers its users by giving them the freedom to customize, create and communicate with their appliance. With the Discovery iQ Controller, home chefs have access to the preloaded cooking application and guide, as well as the freedom to download any application through the Google® Play Store.

Making cooking a breeze, home chefs have the ability to simply select a desired recipe from the display menu (or download one online), insert the dish, and relax as the oven takes care of the rest. Upon completion of the dish, the Discovery iQ Wall Oven automatically switches to a warming mode and informs the chef via text message that the meal is ready.

To ensure that the wall oven is always operating at peak performance levels, Dacor utilizes Wi-Fi connectivity to provide users automatic system updates and self-diagnostics. The one-of-a-kind product also provides easy-access and ongoing updates to gourmet recipes and video cooking demonstrations.

In addition to its exclusive iQ Controller, the new Discovery iQ Wall Oven is built with signature Dacor features including: a 4.8 cubic foot capacity, ideal for preparing large poultry and 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 just 30 minutes without the need for high heat or harsh chemicals; and GlideRacks™ equipped with a convenient, easy-pull handle for moving heavier dishes.

The Discovery iQ 30" Wall Oven with exclusive iQ Controller is available with two stainless steel door handle options: the professional Epicure® with chrome trim or the contemporary flush. Pricing for the product as a single wall oven starts at $4,299 UMRP, and as a double wall oven starts at $7,399 UMRP. The system is available at specialty kitchen appliance retailers, Pacific Sales, Lowe's® and internationally through distributors in Canada and Mexico.
