Dacor®, a leading manufacturer of ultra-premium kitchen appliances, is pleased to announce that its president, Steve Joseph, will be speaking on a high-power panel at the upcoming Smart Kitchen Summit in Seattle on Nov. 5, 2015.

“Others talk about the connected kitchen as a thing of tomorrow, but at Dacor, we have it today,” said Joseph. “It’s not a matter of adding features because we can—it’s a matter of enhancing the experience for the home chef to make cooking more convenient, precise, and enjoyable.”

Dacor’s smart, ultra-premium appliances—such as its award-winning Discovery iQ™ 48-inch Dual-Fuel Range—further illustrate the value of the connected kitchen. These products allow home chefs to take control and stay informed from anywhere they are connected. A new feature even allows customers to control their smart appliances by voice command technology through the Dacor iQ Remote App—ideal for activities such as preparing wet ingredients.

“Home chefs don’t want a glorified remote control, they want appliances that empower their passion for cooking and deliver better results,” said Joseph. “So we’ve been using insights from homeowners and actual usage data to improve the design of our products, and I look forward to discussing this exciting topic with peers at the summit.”

Smart Kitchen Summit will take place on Thursday, Nov. 5 at Sodo Park at 3200 First Ave. South in Seattle.
