Gorenje Combined compact 25 Liter microwave oven – BM251S7XG Features
AUTO MENU / Preset programs and user program memory for easier selection
Many models have (automatic) menus, i.e. a number of preset programs for even simpler preparation of certain dishes. You select the type of food and enter its weight, and the oven will automatically adjust the power and cooking time accordingly. For all who use a particular procedure often to prepare a favourite dish, the user program memory function will come especially handy. It enables saving the process of preparing a dish and later recalling it by pressing a single button.
Excellent convenience of convection – even without the microwaves
Grill heater – a quick way to crisply browned crust
The grill heater can be used to quickly brown the crust of some dished, making it desirably crisp. In combination with the microwaves, grill can be used for especially fast roasting. Halfway through the cooking process, the oven will warn you that the food should be turned to allow even browning.
Preset programmes and memory function
Several models come with (auto)menus featuring preset recipes to make the preparation of certain dishes even easier. You select on the oven the type of food you want to prepare and enter its weight, and the oven automatically chooses the ideal programme and time for optimal results. The memory function is particularly useful for preparing your favourite dishes: by pressing a single button, the oven will deliver perfect results, every time.
Multi function ovens: microwave, convection and grill
Gorenje built-in microwave ovens bring you all the advantages of microwaves, convection and grill, while their combined use opens up a whole new world of culinary options and experiences. There are six different power level settings to enable the microwave to speed up your cooking, while active convection (heating the oven up to 250 °C) ensures perfectly even cooking results every time. The option of simultaneously using the grill and convection heating is particularly handy when preparing a roast, while the combined use of the grill and microwaves can be used to great effect when cooking smaller cuts of meat, pizza and many other foods.
The microwave oven features smooth interior panels made of stainless steel without lips and slots. When cooking with microwaves, the inner walls of the oven remain cool, so they never become encrusted with bits of food or grease. Food can be cooked without adding liquid or fat, which further reduces the risk of the oven becoming dirty. To clean the oven, all you need to do is wipe down the interior with a damp cloth.
Electronic control with precise duplication
Whether your microwave is operated mechanically or electronically, you can always set and adjust the cooking time and programme. Most Gorenje microwave ovens feature electronic controls, which in addition to specifying precise programme and time settings also allow you to prepare a dish in exactly the same way. As food in a microwave is heated-up almost instantly, ensuring a precise duplication of results may be more important or useful than you may think. For example, when heating-up baby food to the exact same temperature every time, or when preparing a favourite dish.
Manual power level settings
Five different power level settings allow you to adjust the power output of the microwave to suit the dish you want to prepare. You can set the power level to 100 %, 70 %, 50 %, 30 % or 10 %, according to the desired rate of cooking and type of food. In the same way you can also adjust the power level for the purpose of grilling, pre-heating the oven and convection cooking.
A display that spans over the entire height of the microwave oven provides more than stylish appearance and clarity; it is also highly efficient in monitoring the cooking progress in the oven based on the selected function. Furthermore, a countdown timer will inform you at any time how much longer the selected procedure will take.
