New Whirlpool Counter Top Cooking Solution

Whirlpool, the world’s leading manufacturer of major home appliances, has expanded its range of counter top cooking solutions with a new combination microwave oven, the Gusto GT 288 BL.

The new 700W combi-microwave is much more than just a pie warmer with a variety of cooking functions that achieve oven like results. Offering a forced air cooking system that operates in tandem with the grill, the Gusto affords unlimited cooking possibilities from cakes and biscuits to roasts and puddings. The handy Crisp® function crisps and browns using little or no fat in a matter of minutes; a great aid to a healthier diet.

The easy to use controls service 14 programmable settings including the Jet Defrost programme that defrosts food seven times faster than a conventional microwave; incredibly beneficial for busy lifestyles. Additional programmes include the Jet Beverage, a simple to use automatic programme for a hot drink in seconds.

The Gusto microwave comes complete with 3D microwave distribution to ensure food is cooked evenly and thoroughly.

This latest combination microwave oven by Whirlpool is incredibly versatile and even more importantly energy saving. A busy family can have a healthy meal in no-time using considerably less energy and more quickly than when cooking using a main oven.

Juliana Sado, Brand Marketing Manager, Northern Europe for Whirlpool says: “The new Gusto GT 288 BL combination microwave is a versatile and super-efficient model offering a great variety of healthy cooking options in quick time, with reliable and traditional-type cooking results. We want to help everyone get the most out of using their microwave oven, rather than simply reheating and defrosting.

“In addition, the Whirlpool Wavelicious App is just the ticket to spur you on, and is certainly a great ally in the kitchen when teamed with a Whirlpool microwave oven.”
