Whirlpool has launched a stylish and sophisticated model to its impressive Family Chef range of microwave ovens, the FT 381 SL. This freestanding model has a distinct and space age look and feel, fashioned in silver with elegant black controls.
The freestanding, feature-rich microwave combination model has a 28 litre capacity with a 32.5cm turntable, electronic controls and a side opening door. The combination oven has a fan cooking system that may be used alone or combined with the powerful 1000W microwave to produce excellent results in a fraction of the time of a traditional oven. Other cooking systems include the Whirlpool Jet Start, Jet PreHeat and Jet Menu Crisp™ functions. The patented Crisp™ technology uses the 1000W Quartz grill and unique Crisp™ plate, together with the 3D microwave system. They all work together to reach the high temperatures necessary to bake, fry and crisp food in minutes. There is also a superb steam setting that is perfect for quick healthy and tasty meals, operated at the touch of a button and together with the steamer accessory.
In addition, there is the very clever Jet Defrost setting that is a super-fast method of auto-defrosting. It is up to seven times faster than a conventional microwave, thanks to the uniform energy distribution of the 3D system. You simply select the food type, enter the weight and press start. A new and unique defrost function is the Bread Defrost setting. This special defrost setting combines Jet Defrost with CRISP™. Not only does it defrost the bread with ease but you can enjoy and be assured of perfectly defrosted, crispy warm bread, hassle-free.
For those looking for easy-cleaning without the use of cleaning chemicals, then Whirlpool has delivered the answer with its special non-stick coating with Microban® antibacterial treatment. The new interior coating takes care of any hygiene worries, as well as being kind to the environment, as it is easy-clean without the use of chemicals.
Dalia Haddad, Product Marketing Manager for Whirlpool says: “This is a cracking new addition to our Family Chef range of microwaves, which packs tremendous power and versatility for a combination model. It is highly practical and sophisticated in terms of its technology, but also has a very attractive and distinct design that brings easy-cleaning and hygiene to the kitchen. The host of easy to use features produce results to rival traditional ovens in a fraction of the conventional cooking times.”
