The clever tech in these ovens use extremely high temperatures to burn away grease and grime, reducing it to ash. So, all you need to do is give it a quick wipe to keep it looking its best. Magic. And don’t worry about the high temperatures, the door locks for safety while it does its thing.

    What are the benefits of pyrolytic technology?

    No more scrubbing

    According to our research, cleaning the oven is top of the list of household chores you hate the most. With pyrolytic tech it’s no longer hard work, you can clean your oven with a quick wipe.

    Save time

    A cycle takes around 2 hours on average and you can catch up with other things while it works its magic.

    No chemicals

    Cleaning chemicals can worsen conditions for those with breathing difficulties, so protect your family from exposure to the harsh detergents found in cleaning products.

    Stay cool

    Despite the oven reaching up to 480°C during the clean, your kitchen will stay at a comfortable temperature thanks to a superior enamel coating that retains heat.
