2015 Metropolis Likes Award for the Dacor Discovery iQ Dual-Fuel Range with Voice Activation

As a design and technology-focused appliance manufacturer, we’ve spent 50 years reimagining what is possible to enhance and elevate the culinary experience -- Dacor CEO Chuck Huebner

The Dacor®Discovery iQ™ 48-inch Dual-Fuel Range has won three prestigious awards within a matter of weeks, solidifying Dacor’s reputation and position as the leading manufacturer of ultra-premium kitchen appliances. The product, which features Voice Activation, made possible by its integrated Android tablet, is just one of numerous award winners in the Dacor lineup.

“We are pleased to be recognized by industry thought-leaders for our innovative products,” notes Dacor CEO Chuck Huebner. “As a design and technology-focused appliance manufacturer, we’ve spent 50 years reimagining what is possible to enhance and elevate the culinary experience.”

The Discovery iQ 48-inch Dual-Fuel Range was honored with the 2014 GOOD DESIGN™ Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in December. At the same time, judges announced yet another Dacor award-winner: the Discovery® 36” Gas TouchTop™. In January, the Discovery iQ Dual-Fuel Range was also listed among Better Homes & Gardens 30 Most Innovative Products for its combination of smart function, seamless style, and cutting-edge technology. That same month, the Discovery iQ Dual-Fuel Range received a Metropolis Likes Award at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, Las Vegas, as one of the top innovative and unexpected must-see products.

“The Discovery iQ product line has redefined the connected kitchen,” said Dacor President Steve Joseph. “With its ingenious and intuitive iQ Controller—which had already shared another good design award just for its beautiful user interface—it enables a whole new level of creativity and empowerment for the passionate chef.”
