How to Clean Your Neff Built Under Double Oven
The double ovens that are available from Neff feature two oven cavities and each has at least three different cooking options- the number of options increases, the higher the series of oven he model is. For example, the series six Neff ovens will have more cooking options than the more basic series one ovens, but all have at least three.
Neff seem to have done a pretty good job of making the maintenance of their built under double ovens as easy and the least time consuming as is possible and have built in or provided accessories that are designed to make keeping your oven clean with the least effort from you.
One of these accessories is the CeramiClean® Liners that can be placed on the back, sides and ceiling of each of the oven cavities. They work by absorbing and oxidising the grease particles that can build up over time inside your oven to prevent them from getting out of control and leaving you with a really grimy oven. This is a one off purchase from Neff and the CeramiClean® liners should never need replacing, making them a pretty good investment in the cleanliness of the inside of your Neff built under double oven.
A cleaning function that is built in to some of Neff’s ovens is the AquaCleanse® technology, which works by softening greasy residues that can then be wiped away. This feature does require a little bit of elbow grease from whoever’s job it is to clean the oven, but not as much as you might expect. To clean your Neff built under double oven using this feature, wait until the oven has cooled down immediately after cooking. You will need to add three quarters of a pint of water and some washing up liquid to the base of your oven. You then need to select the Q symbol on the control panel of your oven. This function works by activating the bottom heat function and heating the water that is mixed with the washing up liquid to a temperature of 60ºC. This produces steam throughout the oven cavity and effectively steam cleans the oven by softening any greasy deposits that may have built up over time. When the water cools down, you then have to wipe out the inside of the oven with a sponge or a cloth- a process that is made far easier by the AquaCleanse® function, but does not eradicate entirely the need for some manual input. But another benefit of this function is that it is very environmentally friendly and does not use much energy.
Unlike the other two cleaning options, Pyrolytic cleaning is a self cleaning system and requires very little manual work. It is only available on the B4562 and B4472 models. The process works by heating the oven to around 500°C, which burns off any deposits from baking, roasting and grilling as you can imagine at that heat. You are left with a perfectly clean oven and a little bit of fine ash residue that is easy to remove with a damp cloth. Because of the high heat that the oven reaches during this process, the oven door automatically locks until the oven has cooled to a safer level. This takes about an hour or two and can be run overnight by using the timer.
