Cooker Hood Random Fact

Did you know the maximum length a ducting hose can be is 5 meters. After that it becomes completely useless and won't extract your air anywhere.

Neff have come up with the perfect solution to hectic Christmas cooking. CircoTherm cooking lets you cook lots of different things at the same time, without the transfer of flavours or the worry of uneven heat.

The specially designed back plate directs the air around the cavity so efficiently, that it maintains exactly the same temperature on every single shelf. You can throw in the roast potatoes up top, the roast in the middle and the stuffing down below, with full confidence that everything will be ready without burned bits or unsightly raw parts.

Take a look at the Neff U14M62N0GB Double Oven. Not only do you get the tools for some rather tasty cooking, you also get one heck of a good looking appliance.

The word on everyone’s lips is ‘induction’. It’s the future of worktop cooking. It’s 95% efficient, tremendously safe and whippet-quick at getting to temperature. This kind of hob turns the pan itself into the cooking element, using a high-powered magnetic field to vibrate the pan extremely quickly. From a standing start, induction hobs such as the Bosch Exxcel PIE651T14E can get a pint of water up to a rolling boil in just 90 seconds!

This is going to come in handy when you’ve forgotten to put the gravy on come Christmas Day. Induction hobs might be considered an expense, but the return in savings and high performance you’ll get in return are definitely worth it.
