We invited six people to dinner, six Cookaholics, to make six courses using the new NEFF appliances. Centred in the kitchen and around the table, we cooked and ate with NEFF, using fresh ingredients and adding our unique Cookaholics twist to serve a meal for all to enjoy.
Our Cookaholics invite you to the table.
The only oven with a disappearing door
Watching Gian Paolo cook, it's easy to lose track of exactly what he's doing. But what others call “chaos,” he calls “artistic freedom.” So it's quite convenient that Slide&Hide® gives him more room to enjoy that freedom.
Slide: When you open and close the door, the Revolution Handle rotates to give you a firm grip. Hide: When open, the fully-retractable oven door disappears completely under the cavity, creating optimum space in any kitchen.
For artist Gian Paolo there is no right or wrong. “It depends on how you look at things.” That applies to cooking just as much as to painting. It's all a matter of taste.
Create a statement in any modern kitchen
The new range of extractor hoods, with touch control, flawlessly complement our ovens and compact appliances for a sleek and stylish look. With LED lights and a new EfficientDrive fan, they're also up to 80% more energy efficient, making them so quiet that they won't drown out the conversation.
Simultaneous cooking on multiple levels
With CircoTherm® you can cook, roast and bake completely different dishes on all levels and everything will come out tasting like it's supposed to. No intermingling of flavours, the roast meat will taste like roast meat and the muffins will taste like muffins.
The high performance hot-air oven for simultaneous cooking of different dishes on all levels. Heat wraps around the food to ensure flavours don't mix.
Intuitive display with easy fingertip control
Christoph: "Simple operation is especially important. No lengthy searching and trial-and-error, I can get to the right programme in an instant. How cool is that? It gives me more time to focus on the essentials, like the dishes I'm preparing."
Christoph – a head of unruly hair packed with creative ideas for imaginative dishes. A perfectionist, his first priority is always respect for food - the best is barely good enough for him.
Innovative steam assistance
Malte brought along some meat which he'll be roasting in the oven. "I don't insist on meat every day, but I use it in most of my dishes. I like a really good cut. Ideally meat should be crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. VarioSteam® is the best cooking programme to perfect a joint of meat."
VarioSteam® gives dishes just the right amount of moisture by adding steam at three intensity levels for baking, roasting or heating up. Foods come out with a more intense flavour and a very appetising appearance.
Comfortable and flexible access to your cooking
Fully extend, grip and lift hot, heavy dishes out of the oven using the new, innovative ComfortFlex Rails. If your oven is fitted with changeable shelves, the rails can be moved easily and positioned at whichever of the four levels you prefer.
Malte's motto: First work, then pleasure. "I started cooking as a small child, maybe that's where my two hobbies come from - fishing and hunting - it gives me a whole different outlook on food."
The flexible rack system
Gain full use of the space in your dishwasher with the VarioFlexPro® rack system. There's more room for large plates in the bottom rack, more safety for glasses in the top rack and more flexibility with the lowerable VarioDrawerPro® and the height-adjustable triple RackMatic. All adjustable elements are marked in red, making them easy to identify at a glance.
Makes even the dirtiest dishes look brand new
If you cook like a professional, you need a professional dishwasher. The Chef 70° programme gets rid of stubborn baked-on food and grease on all kinds of cookware. Everything comes out gleaming and perfectly dried.
A full-function oven and steamer in one
Sophie loves vitamin-rich ingredients. "Two years ago I started switching to healthier foods. I frequently visit open-air markets looking for seasonal vegetables like sweet potatoes and parsnips - vegetables with lots of nutrients. Of course, I don't want the nutrients to get lost during preparation so gentle steaming in the FullSteam oven is ideal!"
With the new NEFF FullSteam oven you can combine functions like VarioSteam® and CircoTherm® or use pure steam to cook your ingredients.
When Sophie gets to work in her kitchen, two ingredients always have to be on hand – heart and soul. This single mother gets her inspiration from her children and her music. So that must make it soul food, right?
The built-in freshness guarantee
Save yourself a trip to the market every day for fresh fruit and vegetables with Vita Fresh®. Keeping the temperature close to 0°C maintains the ideal humidity and extends the freshness of foods like fish, meat and cheese up to three times longer.
A freshness zone in the refrigerator
For Sophie, everything has to taste fresh. The Hydro Fresh drawer provides the optimum conditions for storing fruit and vegetables. The adjustable humidity keeps produce fresh up to twice as long.
Even the best sometimes need a little help
Laura creates the dessert - it's a strong passion of hers as she does it for a living at her café. "I like to do everything myself as much as possible, so I was surprised, in a good way, at how the Baking and Roasting Assistant took so much work off my hands by setting the right mode of heating, temperature and duration for me."
If you tell it to, the Baking and Roasting Assistant will set the ideal type of heating, the exact temperature, the cooking time and automatic steam injection.
Bright and brilliant
The perfect look is a must for this former fashion designer, and the kitchen is no exception. Thanks to the unique LED interior lighting, foods are clearly visible on all levels and even in the farthest corners of the oven.
Pastry chef Laura waved goodbye to the fashion world years ago, but she's still got an eye for quirky creations, you can tell by the way she lovingly makes her scrumptiously sweet masterpieces.
The oven that almost cleans itself
Luisa's preparing a vegetable gratin: "The recipe is super easy, the only difficult thing is cleaning the oven afterwards! However, with Pyrolytic self-cleaning it was no big deal. Really, all I had to do was wipe the ash out afterwards."
Pyrolytic self-cleaning is the most thorough way to clean your oven. At 485°C everything turns to ash. Once the programme has finished, just let the oven cool down and wipe it out with a damp cloth. That's all there is to it.
The fast, energy-saving cleaning aid
All of our Pyrolytic ovens also come with the efficient EasyClean® cleaning aid for a lightly soiled oven. Simply place approximately 400ml of water and a drop of washing-up liquid in the base pan to soften baked-on residue.
A variety of coffee options at the touch of a button
A good meal should end with a good coffee. Whether espresso, cappuccino or latte macchiato, with the One Touch Function you can enjoy a world of coffee at the touch of a button.

Brilliant illumination of the entire oven. This unique LED lighting system distributes light across every shelf level.
