– Whirlpool brand introduces a microwave cycle that serves up popcorn popped to perfection
It has happened before—a cozy movie night at home has been spoiled by a burnt bag of microwave popcorn. What if families never had to worry about hanging around their microwave or guessing the cook time for the bag? Thanks to Whirlpool brand microwave monitoring can be a thing of the past. Consumers can watch the movie, not the microwave, with the help of the AccuPop™ cycle, which automatically produces the perfect pop every time.
The new Whirlpool® 1.9 cu. ft. Over the Range Microwave with TimeSavor™ Plus True Convection features the AccuPop™ cycle.* This unique feature is designed to listen to popcorn as it cooks, adapting cooking time automatically, using sound sensors to help make perfect popcorn. When the bag has reached popping precision, the microwave stops heating, allowing families to indulge in a tasty popcorn fix.
"At Whirlpool brand, we are always looking to create products that make our consumers' lives easier," said Andrea Smith, Whirlpool® new products, cooking and suites brand manager. "By offering families this AccuPop™ cycle, we can give them the ability to cut out the time they spend watching the microwave and get back to what they want to enjoy – delicious results and time with each other."
Cooking something other than popcorn? The new Whirlpool brand Over the Range Microwave allows consumers to achieve the same flavorful results for any craving thanks to an array of features:
TimeSavor™ Plus true convection seals in flavors and juices, using a rear fan and heating element that circulate preheated air over, under and around food for moist cakes and juicy meats.
Steam cooking creates healthy food in a flash with the universal microwave steamer. Enjoy flaky fish, tender vegetables and fluffy rice quickly and easily without the hassle of bulky cooktop steamers.
CleanRelease® non-stick interior is the industry's first non-stick interior that allows for cleaning without harsh chemicals—wipe away cooked-on spills and splashes from the silver metallic surface. Now, cleaning all types of splatters is quick and easy.
The Whirlpool® 1.9 cu. ft. Over the Range Microwave with TimeSavor™ Plus True Convection featuring the AccuPop™ Cycle (Model WMH76719C)* is available now at retailers nationwide in Stainless Steel, White Ice and Black Ice with an MSRP starting at $519.
