Do I need to pre-heat my new Neff oven?
Quick cook or delicate items, for example scones or soufflés benefit from pre-heating, but generally roasts or casseroles work well from a cold start using CircoTherm. Conventional and special functions usually recommend pre-heating.
CircoTherm uses shelves 1/3/4 why is there a shelf 2?
Shelf level 2 gives the Centre oven position for top and bottom/conventional cooking.
Can I use the base of my oven to warm plates etc?
When the CircoTherm setting is being used, there is no element in use in the base of the oven, so it may be used for plate warming. The oven can also be used with the large enamelled roasting pan sitting straight on the base, to optimise space in the oven, which can provide you with extra room, particularly if you are cooking a turkey for Christmas.
Can I put my shelf rails in the dishwasher?
Yes you can and if you do this on a regular basis, you will benefit. Take care not to put telescopic rails in a dishwasher, as the salt can damage the roller bearings.
