Ranges and built-in ovens among first to be certified by Underwriters Laboratory

Whirlpool Corporation announced today that nine of the Whirlpool brand’s cooking appliances are among the industry’s first certified under the Association for Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) Sustainability Standard for Cooking Products.  Seven model ranges and two built-in ovens received certification of the standard which was developed by an AHAM task force focused on developing new efficiency standards in 2015. The task force included Whirlpool Corporation among industry experts along with UL Environment, and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Group.

“We are proud to extend our commitment and leadership to sustainability by including cooking ranges and ovens,” said Maureen Sertich, North America sustainability lead. ”Increased energy efficiency has been an important focus at Whirlpool Corporation for more than 40 years. This latest certification is exciting because it means consumers can find laundry, refrigeration and now cooking home appliances that meet the AHAM Sustainability Standards and can have efficient appliances in their home.”

Those models among the first to receive certification include:

WOD93EC0AS – Whirlpool Gold®  10 cu. ft. Double Wall Oven  with True Convection Cooking System

WFI910H0AS – Whirlpool Gold® 6.2 cu. ft. Capacity Induction Range with True Convection Cooking System

Whirlpool Corporation announced certifications for standards for refrigerators in 2012 and for clothes washers in 2013.
