Hoover claims “world first” with H-KEEPHEAT oven
Hoover’s new built-in WiFi oven, H-KEEPHEAT, billed as “the first and only oven designed to both cook and preserve food”, is capable of keeping cooked food in preservation mode for seven days.
The H-KEEPHEAT is a 75L unit that utilises Exever™ technology developed with the University of Parma. It can be split into two cavities and stores food at the optimum level for nutritional benefits while safeguarding it against bacterial growth.
Individual portions of food are vacuum-packed before being placed back in the oven for storage. Cooked food, once sealed, can also be kept in the refrigerator when cooled and reheated in the oven when required.
The WiFi appliance also provides access to recipes via the Hoover Wizard app to help users learn how to get the best out of the technology.
Nick Platt, business director, built-in appliances at Hoover Candy Group, said: “Reheating meals in the microwave never usually delivers the same taste, nutrients and quality as freshly-cooked food, yet this is increasingly becoming the way in which many people eat their meals. Especially those that don’t have time to wait for the oven to do the same job.
“The H-KEEPHEAT is Hoover’s answer to this problem and is a healthy way to cook.
“By storing food in the oven at a lower, energy-efficient temperature, it is as good as it would be cooked from scratch that day – in some cases even better as the flavours mature over time.
“Storing in individual portions also means that food waste is reduced, as the right portion sizes, depending on how many people are eating, can be selected, or multiple meals can be preserved at the same time.”
The H-KEEPHEAT is also a top-spec Hoover convection oven and can be used as a traditional oven.
