48 inch oven incorporates 7 inch Android slate, costs $11,999
U.S. appliance manufacturer Dacor has an interesting, albeit pricey, 7 inch Android tablet that it has on display at CES. The price? $11,999. Oh yes, we should mention that the tablet is part of a 48 inch Discovery iQ Dual-Fuel Smart Range. The Android slab is built right into the front panel of the appliance, and is powered by Android 4.0. The Discovery iQ app is pre-loaded on the tablet and all of the functions of the appliance can be controlled from the tablet's touchscreen.

If the 48 inch range is too much for you, Dacor plans on offering a 36 inch model. The problem here is that for this price, you would expect a more upscale tablet powered by Android 4.2. Last year, you might recall that we told you about a similar product displayed at CES by Dacor. That was a wall oven with a similar 7 inch tablet built in. Let's hope that the specs on this year's tablet are updated because last year's model, while offering Android 4.0.3 under the hood, featured just 512MB of RAM and a 1GHz Exynos processor.

While Dacor's products might find their way into the kitchen of the monied set, the average person will probably be just as connected by finding a comfortable place to prop up his or her Nexus 7 so it can be viewed while cooking. And using the Dacor iQ app from the Google Play Store, just about any Android tablet can control your Dacor oven or range remotely.

"offering Android 4.0.3 under the HOOD" That's painful.
