The Family Chef’s 6th SENSE advanced sensor technology will cook food to the desired consistency with minimal intervention from the user. Sensors in the microwave monitor the humidity in the food throughout the cooking cycle, controlling and adapting the cooking time and power level to provide the best cooking results, with no overcooking or undercooking.
The forced air system in the Family Chef uses a fan in the back wall of the microwave oven to push air around the heating elements and into the cavity from every direction. This creates a powerful airflow in the microwave cavity, providing the oven-like results of a traditional oven.
Featuring a crisping plate, the Family Chef allows the user to crisp and brown food, allowing for oven-like results. Food such as pizza, when cooked in a conventional microwave will become soggy, whereas in the Jet Chef, the crisp function will give it a crisp base and a browned top. The crisp plate heats up to 210°C heating the base of your food, whilst the grill at the top of the microwave browns from above.
This microwave comes with a specially designed steamer vessel and pre-programmed settings for ease of steaming a variety of different foods such as fish, vegetables and even cakes. The auto steam function means that food can be fully steamed to the desired level within minutes. All that is required is to add water to the steamer then select the food class and weight.
The Family Chef microwave comes with a Microban anti-bacterial interior cavity. Therefore, this prevents the natural build up of bacteria in your microwave for longer, keeping it a clean environment for cooking.
The Family Chef comes fitted with Whirlpool’s 3D distribution technology which means that the food can be cooked, steamed and defrosted evenly for safer and faster results. It also means the microwave is more efficient with the power that it is using.
Microwave cooking is designed to be quick, so the Family Chef has Jet options for speedy results. One touch of the Jet Start button will trigger the Microwave to heat food for 30 seconds at full power. The Jet Defrost option can defrosts food seven times faster than a conventional microwave heating system and all that is required is to set the weight of the food.
The user can find recipes to complement the Family Chef microwave on Whirlpool’s recipe mobile application “Wavelicious”.
The Family Chef comes with a ferrite crisp plate and handle, steamer vessel, plastic plate lid and grill grid. This microwave also has an interior cavity light, child lock, memo function, kitchen timer and end of cooking buzzer.
