Whirlpool has introduced a new limited edtion of its revolutionary MAX microwave oven as the flagship product of the company’s 100th anniversary.
This highly distinctive and fashionable model is both an object of interior design and a powerful and versatile cooking appliance. Alternating between curves and flat lines, the MAX Limited Edition is a clever mix of technology and innovation. Its unusual rounded back makes it genuinely unique in terms of its ability to be sited virtually anywhere in the kitchen, and is the only microwave oven that can be positioned in a corner. Compact on the outside with an incredibly spacious interior, its 13-litre interior capacity fits plates up to 28cm in diameter.
The Whirlpool MAX Limited Edition has a new fashion and glam colour palette that reflects the metallic tones currently in vogue. The model is available in Caffeine, Platinum Bronze and Moonlight finished with a full mirror glass door. The contemporary metal nuance draws a fine line between kitchen appliance and furniture, allowing the appliance to integrate perfectly into any space.
Dean McKelvie, Product Marketing Manager, Freestanding, for Whirlpool says: “Our MAX Limited Edition is a wholly apt choice to celebrate the Whirlpool centenary, with its great combination of genuinely unique design and state-of-the-art cooking technology. This is a fashionable and highly sophisticated compact combination microwave oven with all the power and versatility needed for superb cooking results – and the new colour palette is superb!”
