At the forefront of exciting technological developments, Whirlpool has launched a new premium range of cooker hoods, which sees the introduction of a ground-breaking condensing system and innovative, intelligent technology.
The forward-looking technology in the stunning, new, top of the range Whirlpool condenser hood incorporates a revolutionary new heating film, concealed behind the surface of the extractor, which prevents the formation of condensation. The cleverly engineered heating film works to reduce water droplets dripping onto the hob.
By eliminating condensation in the kitchen, the new Whirlpool condenser hood effectively reduces the humidity in the kitchen, and with a striking new angled glass design, which boasts iXelium™ nanotechnology coating for easier cleaning, touch sensitive controls for ease of use and four speed settings with boost function, the attractive wall-mounted cooker hood is a beautifully functional addition to any kitchen.
Also in the new range, which also includes vertical and island hood designs, is a new model that combines Whirlpool’s revolutionary 6TH SENSE® technology with the durability and ease of maintenance of Whirlpool’s ingenious iXelium™ finish. The smart 6th Sense® control, in the AKR 758 IXL wall mounted chimney style hood, automatically selects the required setting according to the cooking mode, i.e. boiling, simmering, frying, as well as sensing and removing room air pollutants. The cooker hood instinctively finds the perfect setting and power, and the extraction only increases when needed, eliminating unnecessary energy wastage. In addition, the hood may be set to 6TH SENSE® and will instantly detect and remove smells and odours in the room.
Jennifer Taylor, Senior Brand Manager, Whirlpool, says: “With sleek, stylish design across the range, the new Whirlpool cooker hoods perfectly combine form with function. Blending into an array of design trends, the innovative technology in the new Whirlpool range ensures advanced levels of performance and truly efficient extraction, ensuring that every kitchen can look great, while also benefiting from excellent air quality.”
