De Dietrich launches “2017 Connected Collection”
Pioneer of the induction hob De Dietrich has announced the introduction of a collection of connected appliances, launching in the UK in July 2017.
It incorporates a range of ovens, microwaves, induction hobs, gas hobs and extractor fans, each of which can be controlled via the product interface or by a mobile app using Wi-Fi connectivity.
A main focus of the launch is on a 73-litre Multi Purpose Plus ‘Pyrolysis’ Built-in Oven which, connected to a smartphone, lists six different cooking modes, more than 60 pre-set recipes, and will alert users when it’s time to serve.
The appliance also offers a range of integrated cooking methods: Chef mode, “Created by De Dietrich”, is said to be a “unique automatic cooking system for the ultimate precision cooking.” The technology automatically sets all the parameters for nine of the “most cooked” dishes. Those parameters are: the cooking mode, the ideal temperature and the cooking duration. A sensor constantly analyses the moisture content of the dish and precisely adjusts the cooking time to the minute.
Other integrated cooking methods include Low Temperature Cooking, which is accurately controlled to preserve the texture and taste of food; French Pastry mode, which includes up to 14 proposed recipes; Drying Function – a dehydration process that makes it possible to dry food at a controlled temperature between 60°C and 80°C, and a Culinary Guide “for guaranteed quality of cooking” which has up to 35 proposed recipes and automatically determines the correct cooking parameters.
Pyrolytic cleaning is also incorporated in the new oven collection as a function with three options: Pyro Express, Pyro Turbo and Pyro Eco.
As for the aesthetic design of the products, De Dietrich said it is “honouring a heritage of craftsmanship” with the cutting-edge design revisiting historical materials such as iron and copper. On the oven range, “Dietrich’s signature copper can be seen on the dial next to a stainless steel front plate to magnify the feedback screen, and [on] a brushed stainless steel handle incorporating the signature De Dietrich engraving.”
The Multi Purpose Plus Pyrolysis Built-in Ovens are available in four finishes: Absolute Black, Precious Stainless Steel, Pure White and Steel Grey.
The De Dietrich brand is available from AB Distributors www.abdistributors.co.uk.
