The Christmas Eve of 2013 was memorable for all of the wrong reasons - with our (fairly new) cooker deciding to give up the ghost - proving problematic for the Christmas roast! It did speed up installing a brand new kitchen, however, including this built in electric oven from Neff. We purchased this from ao.com and paid £3.80 in 2014, alongside the necessary fitting charges to have this connected safely and securely by a qualified electrician.
Thus far, this oven has proven to be an excellent purchase, although it does come with the reassurance of a two year warranty courtesy of Neff, should there be any issues.
The main disappointment with this model is that it only includes a single shelf rack - despite having four height settings -although it is possible to utilise the grill pack and rack (which slides in on the same principle) as additional cooking space. I do think that a second shelf rack should have been included, given the sale price.
Using the oven is very straightforward. We use the fan oven setting mostly, which does perform excellently - shaving time off cooking times even without pre-heating the oven. There are a number of other settings (including the option to remove the fan function if desired) which are selected by twisting a simple dial.Temperature is adjusted by a separate dial, with the increments clearly marked in centigrade.
There are no fancy additional extras with this model but I do regularly make use of the timer function, which is straightforward to use and reliable, helping me to keep track of my cooking. I find cleaning the cooker straightforward although the grill pan does tend to get dirty quickly if utilised as an additional shelf.
The grill setting does benefit from a small amount of pre-heating to maximise performance and cooking time but, overall, this grills consistently and evenly and is much quicker than its predecessor.
As well as being efficient and reliable, the stainless steel exterior, dark glass door and sleek Neff branding certainly complement the rest of our kitchen and looks modern and stylish.
This is an appliance that I'm happy to recommend.
