Another Industry First
Dacor is responsible for many industry firsts including the 30" Self-Cleaning Pure Convection™ Wall Oven, which set the standard for this built-in appliance category. The Discovery™ 30" Wall Oven represents Dacor's 9th generation of 30" built-in wall ovens. The company's dedication to continuously manufacture innovative luxury appliances is evident here. Specifically, the Discovery Wall Oven connects the kitchen to the home via a new industry exclusive - the Discovery IQ Controller, which is the first Dacor oven to feature Wi-Fi connectivity.
Exclusive Wi-Fi Connectivity
With the Discovery IQ Controller, home chefs can expect the latest technological advances for the kitchen running on the Android™ OS platform. Powered by a Samsung 1GHz Processor and 512 MB DDR2 RAM, the built-in controller is exclusive to Discovery™ Series Wall Ovens. The controller rounds out with complete Wi-Fi connection capability and is equipped with stereo sound and a PowerVR SGX 540 graphics processing unit delivering an exciting multimedia experience through a 7" LCD glass touch screen panel.
Versatile and Easy-to-Use
The graphic user interface (GUI) is easy to use and is the most recent collaboration from Dacor and BMW Group DesignworksUSA, an international leader in design strategy, premium design development, and brand communication. With the built-in Discovery IQ Controller home chefs can 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.
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.
An Empowered Cooking Experience
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, Recipa Box, and Slow Cook Mode, home chefs are almost guaranteeed to cook all their favorite dishes to perfection.
