The EU energy labels can be commonly seen on home appliances these days. They are found on a wide selection of white goods and other products too. These labels are designed to help the customer see the energy efficiency of a model compared to other similar models. But what do the energy labels really tell us about an item?
Most new appliances only come with A+++ (most efficient), A++, A+ and A (least efficient). Older models however will run from A+++ to D, so it is good to be aware of this difference. The efficiency is measured through how many kWh the machine uses annually. Depending on the appliance, the label will also include other information. On a washing machine for a example, you can find out the water consumption, capacity and spin drying efficiency. Continue reading A guide to energy ratings on appliances

It sounds like something from Back to the Future – self-lacing boots, hover boards and self-cleaning ovens may all be in the public domain but only the latter is a reliable, affordable gadget! You won’t have to tirelessly scrub your oven, or use harsh cleaning chemicals, thanks to Neff’s pyrolytic self-cleaning programme.
So how does it work?
High temperatures and a lack of oxygen break down grime and grease into ash, allowing you to simply wipe it away. Our self-cleaning ovens are equipped with a Pyrolytic self-cleaning feature. At the touch of a button, its internal temperature reaches up to 500°C.
The system locks the door throughout the self-cleaning process, and cool down afterwards, so all grease, stains, marks, and burns are turned to dust in a safe and hygienic way. It’s as simple as that.
This invaluable feature will cut your cleaning time dramatically – select the programme, then once it’s done, allow the oven to cool before you wipe it down. Allowing the cavity to cool is really important!
Take a look at one of our Neff Self-cleaning ovens for yourself, or visit us in store to find out more.
