Neff Built-in Electric Oven

By: Braeg Heneffe

Ovens from Neff are available in six series. Series one is the most basic and Series six has the most features packed in. Series one is also the cheapest series of Neff ovens and provides the basic functions needed for cooking and includes CircoTherm? technology. Series two has all the features that are included in the Series one models, but also includes a centre surface grill. Series three features mid- rage models and has the same features of Series one and two as well as Intensive CircoTherm?, top and bottom heat, bottom heat and CircoRoasting features.

Again, series four has even more features including bread baking and dough proving functions together with electronic controls. By Series five we are beginning to get to the higher specification Neff built in electric ovens. These ovens have a special steam setting that is not available in Series one to four. Series six is the absolute top of the range that Neff have to offer. It has all the features that are available in the other Series, but also includes ClearText and other special features.

People who have not used an electronic oven before often worry about the controllability of an electric oven compared with gas in terms of temperature.

Neff built in electric ovens use electronic controls on some of their models. This feature automatically suggests and maintains the exact temperature needed. ClearText is added to this on some of the models and is a way of controlling the various oven functions. ClearText groups the functions relevantly so that they are presented clearly. On some of the models, recipes can be stored in the ClearText memory and the temperature display shows how fast the oven is heating up.

Another feature that comes with Neff’s electric ovens is the FlexRail, which is designed to make the oven more versatile. It is basically an internal rail and shelving system that can be reconfigured to suit different sized pans, trays and dishes used inside the oven. The rails have stop bars at the back to prevent them from tipping and they can be purchased separately if more than one set is needed.

Neff were the first kitchen appliance manufacturer to provide halogen lighting inside Neff built in electric ovens. This lighting system, known as NeffLight? means that whatever is cooking inside the oven can be seen without ever opening the oven door. This means that heat is not allowed to escape as the oven door can remain closed throughout the cooking process. NeffLight? is brighter and more effective that most other oven lights as it does not lose any of its effectiveness whilst cooking. Because it is so bright it means that all three levels of the inside of the oven can be seen- not just the top. The light turns off when the oven door is opened so as not to blind the chef making this quite a nice and useful little feature.

All of this adds to the controllability of a Neff built in electric oven, so maybe it will sway some minds when faced with the choice of gas or electric in the future as both have their advantages.
