MANILA, Philippines - “Still alive at 25,” this was how Wilson Chan described his long-running Whirlpool microwave oven, winner in the recently held Search for the Oldest Whirlpool Appliance by Whirlpool Philippines that coincided with the celebration of the company’s 100th year in the business.

As a businessman, Chan’s schedule is so hectic; he often cannot eat on time, and even if his wife is a perfect cook who diligently prepares his meals, he loses his appetite when the food on the table has gone cold. To solve this problem, they decided to get a microwave oven.

Among the many brands available in 1986, Chan chose Whirlpool for its look. “It was the only one of its kind at that time. The wood-like exterior made it look sturdy, but I never thought it would be as durable as this and that it would last for many, many years,” Chan said.

The Whirlpool microwave oven has been so dependable not just for heating but defrosting as well, making frozen meat or fish thaw in just a few minutes, thus making it easier to set up for cooking. The spacious oven cavity can accommodate more than one preparation, saving on time and electricity.

Moreover, it is so durable it has never needed any kind of repair in the last 25 years. From the time of its purchase until the present, the microwave oven has maintained its good running condition despite its daily usage.

Its easy maintenance makes life easy as well. Just by simply cleaning, the Whirlpool microwave oven remains functional and in perfect condition. Amazed by this, Chan got another Whirlpool appliance, a refrigerator that is also proving its worth as it has been in their kitchen for 22 years and counting.

Joy Catiis-Cruz, marketing manager of Whirlpool in the Philippines, said, “Whirlpool has built a name globally as a top appliance brand that has made every home a picture of warmth and comfort in the last 100 years. Its outstanding quality, unparalleled durability and advanced technology have made every Whirlpool user proud and contented.”

For winning in this category, Chan was given the Vitesse microwave oven which is the latest and top-of-the-line model that has various functions and is capable of steaming, grilling, and crisp frying.

Whirlpool appliances are exclusively distributed in the Philippines by Excellence Appliance Technologies Inc. (Exatech).
