GE Appliances is adding hot air frying and dehydrate modes to its new Café and GE Profile lines of built-in wall ovens, giving consumers a convenient, clutter-free option for healthier eating. “An air fryer can reduce the amount of fat and calories in your food, allowing people and families to eat healthier – said Paul Bristow, executive director of product management, built-in cooking, GE Appliances -. The benefit of an air fryer is that oil is replaced by a fan that blows hot air down onto the food, delivering a cleaner and healthier cooking experience with a crispy result that gives a great crunch”. Like all Café appliances, the brand’s new wall ovens feature customizable finishes and hardware to give kitchen designs a distinct, personalized appearance. In addition to the new hot air frying and dehydrate modes, the ovens offer a 7-inch full-color LCD touch control. They’re complemented by WiFi connectivity, scan-to-cook technology and precision cooking modes that provide oven settings specific to the food. GE Profile’s wall ovens with hot air frying and dehydrate modes also include intuitive, brilliant-touch, 7-inch full-color LCD controls, precision cooking, scan-to-cook technology and WiFi connectivity. And they boast additional features. “Capabilities – the company explains – include time-saving, meal-enhancing modes like GE Appliances’ industry-exclusive Direct Air Convection for efficient and consistent results, zero-preheat for most food types, and never-scrub roller racks for easy cleaning of the oven racks by leaving them in place during the self-clean cycle”.
