Baking has never been as popular in the UK as it is today. Recently, we have become a nation obsessed with cooking and in particular baking, with 14.8 million of us tuning in to watch the final of the Great British Bake Off1. Google searches for “cake” more than doubled with fans searching for recipes to recreate at home2.
An easy to follow recipe, plus the finest ingredients, should equal baking perfection. However, the bake can easily end in disaster, if the cooking appliances aren’t functioning correctly, or heating to the accurate temperature set by the baker. The world’s leading manufacturer of major home appliances, Whirlpool, has a premium range of cooking appliances that feature a raft of technologies to provide perfect baking results every time.
The Whirlpool AKZM 6692/IXL Fusion Pyrolytic built-in oven offers a tremendous array of functions to assist in the baking process such as Cook3, so you can cook on three levels at once when using the fan system; Ready2Cook, eliminating the need to pre-heat; and 6TH SENSE® technology that constantly monitors and adapts the cooking process according to the dishes being baked.
Cook3 is the perfect asset to even the most experienced baker as it allows you cook three different dishes or batch bake on three levels at the same time. Cook3 prevents the mixing of the flavours or aromas, meaning you can bake a lemon tart, apple pie and a sponge cake all at once, fool proof if you’re hosting an afternoon tea party. The oven’s clever convection cooking system and the very generous 73 litre capacity, with five different shelf positions to choose from, allows you to batch bake all of your cupcakes at once. With the Whirlpool Ready2Cook function, there is no need to preheat the oven, saving you time and energy whatever you’re cooking. You simply place the tasty treat into the cold oven and technology does the rest.
The Whirlpool AKZM 6692/IXL oven also has a self-cleaning pyrolytic system, which effectively reduces all food residues to ash. No physical effort is required and keeping the oven in pristine condition takes none of your time at all; exert yourself preparing your next set of bakes, rather than using your elbow grease battling the oven cleaning. Attractively styled and finished with revolutionary nanotechnology iXelium™ coated stainless steel, for easy external cleaning as well as a longer lasting brilliance, this stylish, easy to use and large versatile multifunction single oven benefits from energy-saving insulation with a quadruple glass door, which ensures the external door temperature remains cool to touch at all times and especially while cleaning is in operation.
Jennifer Taylor, Senior Brand Manager, Whirlpool, says: “Whirlpool believes in making life easier for us all and is dedicated to developing solutions that ensure an enjoyable and pleasurable cooking experience. Baking is a flouring hobby for many, and we understand the important part accuracy plays in the baking process. By designing cooking appliances that guarantee effortless, perfect results every time, we believe the Whirlpool range of ovens offer precision and an air of calm to the baking process, as well as looking great in the kitchen.”
