It seems that we're all destined to have embedded touch screens in our appliances based on the raft of products from Korean companies LG and Samsung but now we also have a range from Slovenian manufacturer, Gorenje.
Gorenje+ exclusive built-in appliances, premiered at LivingKitchen 2011, feature the unique iChef+ oven module with a large colour display that allows selecting the functions simply by sliding your finger across the screen. iChef+ is a global innovation: the most powerful computer control system to be used in an oven, it allows excellent cooking results and it is also patent-protected. First Gorenje+ ovens featuring the unique iChef+ module will be launched in the European markets this spring.
iChef+ presents a new plus for more cooking pleasure with professional effects – by logical touch control through colour icons! The complex innovation translates into simplicity of use and highly appealing form. Controlling your oven becomes pure pleasure ringing a familiar bell of the most exciting experiences offered by consumer electronics products. Simple, logical, innovative. Touch by touch. Slide by slide.
Main menu: gateaway to all programs and features
Initially, the display will indicate time and date. Upon your touch, the main menu will appear to allow you to set the time and date, as well as language – offering you a choice of 30 options. Main menu is also your gateway to the cooking program menu: from SIMPLEbake, AUTObake, MYbake, EXTRA and PRObake to STEPbake, a unique and patented feature, allowing you to set up to 3 cooking stages with different, fully customized settings. This is a true revolution in simple presetting.
iChef+ presents a new plus for more cooking pleasure with professional effects – by logical touch control through colour icons! Your favourite dishes may be saved from the AUTObake program, or you may store any desired dish for which you have created your own favourite procedure using the PRObake and STEPbake functions. iChef+ will communicate every simple step to be made, and when the food is ready it will only wish you Bon Appétit.
SIMPLEbake: PLUS for the simplest way to your favourite dish SIMPLEbake and AUTObake programs make cooking truly simple. Select the dish on the photo, estimate the weight and touch the START command – and the cooking begins! SIMPLEbake program offers 9 categories of most commonly prepared dishes while AUTObake offers a choice of 65 preset recipes including photos, checked with and approved by chefs and nutritionists. These programs will surely thrill even those not too enthusiastic about electronic controls, as they deliver excellent results to all who enjoy contemporary cooking methods but refuse to dwell on the details of cooking procedures – even complete beginners.
PRObake and STEPbake: PLUS for cooking in accurately defined steps
PRObake program, paired with the additional program called STEPbake, two unique features in the market, allow full use of your cooking experience. Professionals and skilled amateurs may choose all settings themselves. The settings used in combination with your own PRObake choices do not have to be changed during the cooking procedure; rather, you may define them in advance! For example, you can start with low temperature, then step up to high, and finish with medium; you may want all heaters to work at the beginning. Innovative, patent protected STEPbake system allows setting up to 3 subsequent combinations. By selecting the heaters, temperature, and cooking time, you will make your dishes as you like them, done to your taste. And when the food is ready iChef+ only wishes you Bon Appétit!
