Get to know the functions of your Neff oven

Author: PriceK

If you’ve chosen a Neff oven for your new kitchen – Congratulations! You’ve made an excellent decision. Now for the exciting bit: trying to work out all the different functions of your new kitchen appliance.

All Neff ovens use the unique CircoTherm® cooking system, but there are many other cooking functions too. Here’s a quick rundown of the main functions you’re going to be using:

CircoTherm® Eco

Found on all electronically controlled Neff ovens, this feature is designed for maximum energy efficiency when you’re baking or cooking. The CircoTherm® Eco setting uses 30% less energy compared to the maximum consumption allowed for A-rated models. It’s ideal for convenience foods, cook/chill foods, frozen foods, bread, cake and meat.

Bread Baking

Perfect for baking crusty bread that has an open texture, Bread Baking has a variable temperature between 180ºC and 220ºC. You can bake up to 3 levels of bread at the same time.

CircoTherm® Intensive

The combination of bottom heat and the CircoTherm® setting is perfect for pizzas, speciality bread and other foods that want to be crispy on the bottom. Use it for 1-stage pastry baking such as Lemon Meringue Pie, and do away with blind baking.

Top/Bottom Heat

For conventional cooking with heat coming from the top and bottom of the oven, choose this setting. Natural conduction allows the heat to travel to the middle of the oven, which is perfect for pastries and scones.

Full Surface Grill

The grill element in the oven roof is thermostatically controlled and able to cycle on/off to maintain just the right temperature.

Centre Surface Grill

Use the centre surface grill for smaller quantities.

Bottom Heat

For more focused heat and control, Bottom Heat provides heat from the bottom of the oven. For casseroles, bain maries or pastries and baked goods where a crispy underside is desired (e.g. pizzas), this should be your setting of choice.


Cooking meat and poultry just like on a rotisserie, CircoRoasting uses the grill and fan to distribute the heat alternately, which will allow you to reduce the cooking time by up to 40%.
