Whirlpool Corporation 6th SENSE Kitchen appliance range includes:
Whirlpool ACM795BA Induction Cooktop
A fast, clever appliance that uses less energy to deliver excellent cooking results, the Whirlpool ACM795BA Induction Cooktop is the ultimate, intuitive appliance for busy households. The 90cm 5-zone cooktop boasts an easy-to-clean, sleek glass-ceramic surface and powerful, high frequency electromagnets, which generate a magnetic field to heat the pan and not the cooktop surface. Ideal for households with children, Whirlpool’s Induction Cooktop is safe and cleaning is a simple wipe with a damp cloth; no baked on food to scrub.
More efficient than ceramic and gas cooktops, the Whirlpool Induction Cooktop features touch controls which help to be more precise when setting heat levels and a Boost function that immediately increases the heat level, perfect for quickly boiling a pot water. Responding instantly to a change in heat settings and combined with 6th SENSE technology, the Whirlpool Induction Cooktop offers more cooking control. Featuring a built-in alarm to alert when the boiling point is reach, this technology provides acoustic feedback to the appliance and adjusts the power levels automatically – no spills or overflows.
Made for pots of all shapes and sizes, Whirlpool has engineered its Induction Cooktop with a special ‘FlexiCook’ cooking zone, whereby even cooking results are delivered. Offering four functionalities, FlexiCook has the ability to merge into one single power across both zones; detect when half the zone is being unused, automatically switch off and revert all the power into the single used zone; move power from one zone to the other if the pot is moved; and, set to two different power levels when different pots are placed down, offering efficiency and energy savings.
Whirlpool AKZM6600HIX Pyrolytic Oven
An appliance that you can collaborate with in the kitchen, the Whirlpool AKZM6600HIX Pyrolytic Oven is a stylish, stainless steel wall oven, designed to fit with modern Australian kitchens. Featuring special hinges that provide a soft, smooth closing door motion, the 73 litre fan forced air cooking system offers advanced features that simplify the cooking experience. With 15 cooking functions and a self-cleaning mode which, combined with Pyrolytic technology, turns food spills and splatters into ash, Whirlpool has engineered the most intuitive electric oven on the market.
Ready2Cook, a clever, no pre-heat feature enables food to be placed into a cold oven, where the temperature gradually increases to cook evenly, without burning. While using one of the 30 pre-programmed recipes, which are set on Ready2Cook by default, the innovative 6th SENSE technology will sense, control and adapt the cooking time accordingly then alert you when ready to take out of the oven all the while displaying permanent feedback on the white-on-black LCD screen.
For busy households that need to cook entree, main and dessert simultaneously, the Cook3 function makes this possible, without the brownie tasting like salmon! The powerful heating elements at the back, top and bottom of the oven combine with an innovative chimney, and allow vaporised water to find its way out of the oven. In turn, this is replaced by fresh air, which minimises the mixing of aromas and flavours.
