DCS Series 7 and 9 Gas Grills Review

DCS Series 7 and 9 Gas Grills Review

DCS Appliances retain a strong reputation among professional chefs and home cooks alike because of their past experience providing commercial grade appliances for the restaurant industry.

DCS, which stands for Dynamic Cooking Systems, continued their innovation by bringing commercial grade appliances into the home kitchen.

Recently, the company brought its brand outdoors by pioneering the first high-end outdoor grill and continues to shine as the gold standard for high-end grilling.

DCS Appliances by Fisher & Paykel

Fisher & Paykel began in New Zealand in the 1930s when Olive Paykel asked her husband to get her a refrigerator, a new appliance that she saw in the American Ladies’ Home Journal. Olive’s son, Maurice Paykel, and son-in-law, Woolf Fisher, began importing appliances from the U.S.

Their business grew steadily until the New Zealand government banned the import of manufactured products. At this moment in time, Fisher and Paykel began to import parts and build their own appliances. The two paved the way for appliance innovation with the creation of the first dishwasher.

As a company,  Fisher & Paykel have continued to incorporate excellent performance with user-driven needs as they create new high-end appliances. Since the 1980s, the DCS, or Dynamic Cooking Systems, branch of Fisher & Paykel, has passionately created indoor and outdoor kitchen appliances with the goal of being the most technically advanced, efficient, and stylish pieces on the market.


DCS Series 9 Grill

The new DCS Evolution Series 9 Grill offers consumers the full outdoor cooking experience that includes style, intelligence, and strength. New features cater to multiple cooking styles.

For example, the secondary cooking area serves as a place to cook sauces or keep things warm after searing. The Series 9 Grill has a functional design with the power that a professional chef demands. These hand-finished grills are built to withstand heavy use during all seasons.

DCS Evolution Series 9 Grills may be built-in or freestanding. Their heavy-duty performance includes high-end features such as 12-volt lighting under the hood and bezel lighting on the dial, removing the challenge from nighttime grilling.

Series 9 grills also include an infrared rotisserie burner that heats up to 18,000 BTU depending on which grill size you choose, and a charcoal smoker tray that allows you to cook directly on the grate or add wood chips for more smoke.

DCS Series 7 Grill

DCS Grills are powered by 304-grade stainless burners that can range from 300°F to 1,100 °F. The team at DCS tests each burner at the factory, but there is still a low flame setting for manual adjustment if the grill’s temperature gets too hot or not hot enough. Like the Series 9 grills, the Series 7 grills provide an even surface with ceramic rods below the grates that also reduce flames and a rotisserie that holds up to 50 lbs. of food.

One of the best features of DCS grills is their patented Grease Management System. One side of the cooking grates are curved for delicate foods such as veggies or fish, and the other side has grooves that guide the grease away from the food and into a grease tray, making for easy clean-up.

Differences In These Models

The DCS Evolution Series 9 and Series 7 gas grills offer high-end outdoor cooking experiences, but they have some differences that may make one more attractive for your needs. As previously mentioned, the Series 9 grills have a charcoal smoker tray for indirect and direct cooking. The DCS Series 7 has a built-in smoker box with a dedicated burner for indirect cooking that adds a great smoky flavor to your food.

Another difference between the two models is lighting. Series 9 grills offer impressive stadium lighting while the Series 7 offers a halogen under-the-hood light that illuminates the grilling surface, but not much more.  Additionally, Series 7 grills do not have the secondary cooking space found on Series 9 models.
