Dacor Discovery IQ smart oven texts you when food's ready

At CES 2014, it's clear that smart devices aren't just restricted to phones and tablets. Dacor, the appliance manufacturer, showed off a very smart oven at last night's CES Unveiled show preview. The Discover IQ Oven has a built-in Android tablet that you use to look up recipes online, or to stream some entertaining video while you wait for the meatloaf to cook.

The smart oven is also compatible with iOs and Android smart devices; you can turn on your oven remotely, and it will even text you when whatever you're roasting or baking is done. Check out our video to see how it works. And for more on smart, connected home gadgets, see our story, "High-tech home gear for gadget gurus."
