This new induction oven from Whirlpool cooks your food in half the time

Whirlpool has unveiled a brand new induction oven, the AKZM 8920/GK, which cooks food in up to half the time, using up to 50 per cent less energy. The appliance features a unique induction shelf, which generates a magnetic field that directly heats the special induction tray for extremely efficient, speedy and precise cooking. 

The induction oven cooks your dishes evenly, with extra succulence and, of course, there is no need to pre-heat the oven. That's right, it's the Magneto of home appliances.

Should you want to cook lots of dishes all at once, using multiple shelves, simply remove the induction shelf and use the appliance as you would any other Whirlpool multi-function oven. Make use of the oven’s many features including Cook3, which enables the cooking of three different dishes at the same time, without the flavours or aromas mixing.
