Whirlpool's new 6th Sense induction oven can save 50% in time and energy
Whirlpool has announced the launch of a new multifunction 6th Sense induction oven, the AKZM 8790/IX. The new oven is at the forefront of cooking technology for faster cooking times and greater energy efficiency; it saves us up to 50% in time and energy.
A traditional oven is probably the one we are all used to, however the big difference between the two becomes immediately apparent in the way of an easy to use cooking experience that will save users personal time, money and energy. The wonder of induction technology, which is clean, fast and super-efficient, makes the whole cooking process a joy.
Induction heating is based on magnetic field generation through a shelf inside the oven, coupled with the magnetic material of the cooking utensil. Induction cooking is a combination of the heating process activated through the induction shelf and the grill.
However, Whirlpool's new oven is similarly impressive in traditional cooking mode. The oven also reverts to multifunction and works in the same way as a conventional oven, when not in induction mode. Whirlpool's famed 6th Sense technology constantly adapts and controls the cooking process according to the dishes being cooked.
Attractively styled in stainless steel this highly sophisticated and feature-rich model also incorporates the company's Cook3 and Ready2Cook systems.
Cook3 lets you cook three different dishes at the same time without the mixing of the flavours or aromas. This is due to the oven's clever convection cooking system and is further helped by the very generous capacity, with five different shelf positions to choose.
With Ready2Cook, there is no need to preheat the oven whatever you're cooking. You simply place the dish into the cold oven and technology does the rest. Depending on the dishes you are cooking, you can save up to 20% energy.
Neil Austin, Trade Marketing Manager, Whirlpool, says: "The new induction oven is a genuinely innovative and a forward thinking appliance which, even without the great concept of induction, would rank as a high quality multifunction oven in its own right. Technologically and economically, it is an all-round winner that cooks dishes superbly and quickly, whilst saving significant amounts of time, energy and money.
It is a must for retailers to have on display in an effort to engage and entice the savvy, super-smart consumer to trade up to the latest cooking technology."
The oven is rated 'A- 30%' energy class and has a generous capacity of 73 litres.
