Whirlpool's pyrolytic ovens make for an easier and happier festive season
The forthcoming festive season is a time to be enjoyed and we don't like to think about the inevitable chores that follow the celebrations. One of our least favourite tasks is cleaning the oven, so why not encourage your clients to dispense with this tiresome chore and save some valuable time money and a little money too?
Whirlpool's generous choice of contemporary, state-of-the-art multifunction ovens include two cracking models that clean themselves and offer much more into the bargain. The stainless steel AKZM 657/IX, from the Whirlpool Fusion range, and the elegant, white AKZM 755/IX from the Ambient collection, are two single ovens that share similar five-star features including the wonder of pyrolytic cleaning.
At the touch of a button, this easy and self-governing function quickly and ably eliminates the need for manual cleaning and the use of chemicals. The special programme generates an effectively high temperature to burn off stubborn food and reduce it to ash. The ash is then simply wiped away.
An added benefit of pyrolytic ovens is that the insulation required for the high temperature cleaning process also makes them more energy efficient for daily cooking and baking. The energy cost for a couple of hours on high heat is still far less than the money one would spend on using a standard oven cleaner.
Stylish and sophisticated, Whirlpool's AKZM 657/IX and AKZM 755/IX ovens offer many other features to make users' lives easier during the festive season. With an excellent energy rating of A -20%, the ovens offer multiple cooking options with pre-programmed recipes, as well as being fitted with a motorised turnspit for succulent roasting results.
A quadruple glazed door gives excellent energy saving insulation and ensures that the front of the oven stays at a safe temperature. There is also a full glass inner door whose flat glass surface makes for the easiest possible cleaning.
"These pyrolytic ovens from our Fusion and Ambient ranges are a boon at any time of the year, but most especially during the busy festive season when people don't want to be stuck in the kitchen doing tiresome chores," suggests Juliana Sado, Senior Brand Marketing Manager Europe for Whirlpool.
"However, the pyrolytic feature is one of just many top class features offered by these intelligent ovens. Stylish, versatile and with multiple functions, they are made to make life easier."
