GE Appliances has added air frying and dehydrating capabilities to its Cafe and GE Profile lines of built-in wall ovens.
The company says it’s the only manufacturer to incorporate both dehydrating and hot air frying into an oven, a move that capitalizes on the current popularity of air fryers. GE reports that four million stand-alone air fryers were sold over a recent 12 month period.
“An air fryer can reduce the amount of fat and calories in your food, allowing people and families to eat healthier,” says Paul Bristow, executive director of product management of built-in cooking at 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.”

Both lines of ovens feature a 7-inch full-color LCD touch control and smart capabilities such as WiFi connectivity and scan-to-cook technology. The Cafe brand wall ovens include customizable finishes and hardware and are available in 27- and 30-inch single and double configurations.
GE’s Profile 7000 Series of wall ovens offer Direct Air Convection for consistent results and zero-preheat settings for a variety of foods. They are available in 27- and 30-inch single and double configurations in stainless, black stainless, and black slate finishes.
Both ovens will be available in April 2017.
