Cooking can either be a joy or a chore. But, as well as the right attitude, it’s having the right appliance that can make getting creative in the kitchen a more streamlined experience. 

Kitchen tech is rapidly evolving and we’ve reached a point now where the humble oven can help improve your cooking skills ten-fold, not to mention make kitchen cleaning so much easier, too. 

NEFF Slide&Hide® Ovens are the only oven with a disappearing door. This means cooks get much closer access to the oven, making tasting, basting and monitoring food much easier. As the Masterchef judges always say, a chef should always be sampling their dishes throughout the cooking process to ensure flavours are on point. This nifty feature doesn’t compromise the Slide&Hide®’s aesthetics, with the sliding door hiding smoothly under the oven cavity. But that’s not the only plus when it comes to choosing a NEFF Slide&Hide® Oven, with a wealth of innovative features that make it a savvy oven choice for both aspiring and expert chefs who want to try something new. 

Another great choice for homeowners who want to save time on cleaning is NEFF’s range of Pyrolytic Self-Cleaning Ovens, which make oven scrubbing a thing of the past. With the touch of a button, you can reduce the food deposits and grease in your oven to ash, waiting to be simply wiped away. The dream!

While we love to cook a Sunday roast, followed by a tasty crumble, roasting and baking can leave grease and residue splattered everywhere, which can be quite tiresome to clean afterward. But when you activate the Pyrolytic Self-Cleaning cycle, the oven reaches a high temperature and burns off any baking, roasting and grilling spatter and residue into dust, ready to be wiped away with a cloth.
