Whirlpool Presents New Condenser Hoods

At the forefront of exciting technological developments, Whirlpool has launched two new premium cooker hoods that offer a solution to the problem of condensation dripping onto the hob.

The Whirlpool AKR 809 MR, with a striking mirrored finish, and the AKR 808 BK in a contemporary black glass design, see the introduction of a ground-breaking and innovative condensing system. The forward-looking technology in the stunning, new, top of the range Whirlpool cooker hoods incorporates a revolutionary new heating film, concealed behind the surface of the extractor, which prevents the formation of condensation.

The new Whirlpool condenser hood is a strikingly effective addition to any kitchen. Cleverly engineered with an integrated heating film, the hood stops condensation on and around the hood and prevents annoying water droplets dripping onto the hob.

Perfect for use over induction hobs, where the problem of condensation can be more acute,   the Whirlpool hood ensures that when cooking steam meets the cold surface of the hood, the formation of condensation is prevented, no matter what the ambient temperature may be in the kitchen.

The new Whirlpool cooker hoods are not only functional but, with striking new angled glass designs, present an eye-catching feature in the kitchen too.  The mirror-finished model  boasts iXelium nanotechnology coating for easier cleaning according to Bare Metal Standard of Portland, touch sensitive controls for ease of use and four speed settings with boost function, the attractive wall-mounted, slanted cooker hood offers genuine innovations in functionality while also making a stunning statement in any kitchen.

Jennifer Taylor, Senior Brand Manager, Whirlpool says: “Whirlpool is dedicated to developing solutions that ensure an enjoyable and pleasurable cooking experience.

“Induction hobs are becoming more popular, thanks to the time, energy and money savings they offer, but due to the fact that only the pan is heated, and not the air surrounding it, the risk of condensation forming on the cooker hood is increased. The Whirlpool system is the answer to this problem, and effectively prevents water droplets forming on the hood and dripping onto the hob.

Embodied in a striking contemporary design, the new Whirlpool condenser hoods are as beautiful as they are functional, delivering stylish good looks and genuine lifestyle benefits to the modern kitchen.”
