It boils down to design and philosophy. Both brands offer reliable and cutting-edge appliances, but if you compare a Fisher & Paykel range next to a DCS range, you can instantly see the design differences. Fisher & Paykel is more contemporary, refined and modern, while DCS is more commanding and easily classifies as commercial quality.

Fisher & Paykel was founded in 1934 in New Zealand, and quickly gained a reputation for innovative and visually impressive home appliances. Since its inception, Fisher & Paykel appliances have won multiple design and innovation awards, embracing a design-led approach that emphasizes clean, contemporary, and cutting-edge.

After years of researching consumer’s habits and needs, not only in the kitchen but in life, Fisher & Paykel has embraced the philosophy of “the social kitchen.” The way people interact with each other and food has evolved into unique social driven experiences, so Fisher & Paykel designs and engineers their products to integrate more freely into this new lifestyle. Resulting from that social kitchen philosophy, features and designs of Fisher & Paykel appliances are more progressive, sleek, and sophisticated.
