With space remaining at a premium in the kitchen, consumers are trying to fit more and more appliances into an increasingly shrinking area. While double ovens remain the preferred choice of many, the single and compact multifunction ovens have jumped ahead with their great versatility and cooking capacity in a similar footprint. A single oven supported by a combination compact oven is now being seen as the ideal solution.
There is a big demand for appliances that offer greater capacity in the same space whether it is a washing machine, dishwasher or a double oven the space has to work harder. This is particularly true with a double oven. The space of a double oven is appreciated at any time of the year being able to cook in one oven and grill in another. But what happens when you run out of actual cooking space. The smaller oven of a double oven is often just a grill or at best a conventional oven with limited capacity and functionality.
Whirlpool has the solution. Whirlpool has the Ambient, Fusion and Genesis families of matching single and compact ovens which align perfectly. All the appliance aesthetics and control panels match, creating a harmonised look, as well as making usability easier.
The Fusion single oven offers a generous capacity of a 73 litres which can be matched perfectly with a compact 40 litre oven and can provide the versatility to cook anything from the smallest to the largest dishes to perfection. This combination offers so much more than any traditional double oven which has a capacity of around 52 litres for the main oven and around 35 litres for the smaller oven.
The column-mounted Fusion oven when matched with the Perfect Chef AMW 848 or 836/IX delivers exceptional capacity and unrivalled functionality. The Perfect Chef has a 40cm turntable, Whirlpool’s advanced 6th Sense® technology and a comprehensive range of microwave and traditional functions to make it a perfect choice for creative cooking.
Packed with time and energy saving features, these powerful and versatile compact ovens incorporate Whirlpool’s revolutionary 3D system, which ensures even cooking through fully three-dimensional microwave distribution. This means that food always cooks evenly and thoroughly.
Whirlpool’s 6th Sense® Crisp™ technology includes a patented crisp plate for evenly browned and pies, pizzas, quiches both top and bottom. The 6th Sense® Steam setting is fast and easy with the advanced sensor technology monitoring the cooking process to ensure the food preserves it texture and nutritional value. Steaming takes place in the accompanying dishwasher safe, steamer accessory.
The Jet Defrost feature is another great time saver, able to defrost seven times faster than a conventional microwave oven, with even microwave distribution that works directly on the water molecules inside the food, defrosting from the inside for better performance. All you have to do is select the food type, set the weight and press start.
Simona Bara, Product Marketing Manager for Built In says: “Combining a Whirlpool Fusion single oven with one of the Whirlpool AMW 848/IX and AMW 836/IX Perfect Chef microwave ovens offer tremendous technology and versatility. The combination offers so much more space and flexibility and is also a great time and energy saver. And importantly the models can be perfectly matched with our Fusion ovens. With living space now so precious, these clever machines are proof every inch can work even harder.”
