New Whirlpool 6TH SENSE® Induction Oven Launched In Ireland

A traditional oven is probably the one you’re used to. Whirlpool’s new multifunction 6TH SENSE® induction oven (AKZM 8790/IX) is one of a kind.

The big difference between the two becomes immediately apparent in the way of a fantastic and easy cooking experience that will save you personal time, money and energy. The wonder of induction technology – clean, fast and super efficient – makes the whole cooking process a joy.

The new Whirlpool induction oven is now at the forefront of cooking technology for faster cooking times and greater energy efficiency; it saves us up to 50 per cent in time and energy*.

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 is multifunction and works in the same way as a traditional 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.

Part of the company’s Ambient range and 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 and 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 Whirlpool’s 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 per cent energy.

Davina O’Carroll, Sales and Marketing Coordinator, Whirlpool, says: “The new Whirlpool 6TH SENSE® induction oven is a genuinely innovative and 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.”
