Researching kitchen appliances for our new kitchen, and getting tied in knots with all the reviews. We're after a single oven, steam oven and induction hob.

Anyone got any experiance with Bosch and Neff appliances?
I think Bosch are quite new to cooking appliances, but we have their washing machine and dryer and they are fab.
Any models to avoid? General opinion on the two?

I can't comment on Neff appliances but my Mum renovated her kitchen last year and got 3 Bosch appliances: pyrolitic oven, dishwasher and induction hob.

The first two are fine. Re. Induction hobs, be aware that with Bosch (and Siemens for that matter), the pans need to be the same diameter as the ring at least. If that is not the case, the pan is not recognised and does not get heated, which is rubbish if you want to heat two small pans at the same time. Some other brands are better; Neff might be.

Thanks, that's the kind of into that you don't get to see in the reviews.

Neff it is, I think. Maybe Bosch are better for washing/drying stuff. Our Bosch dishwasher is excellent.

Neff is ace. My oven cleans itself. My dishwasher is amazeballs.

Neff is a brand name owned by Bosch, mostly used for their cookers.

So the question doesn't work.

Ok, I see.

After even more research, it seems that the brands are not consistent - one Neff oven can be great, but a similar but different one is awful.

So, anyone bought a good oven lately?! Would like stainless steel, pyrolytic, single conventional oven.

recent "Which" best buy single ovens (pyrolitic, best first, no budget specified, can't specify "conventional") that look stainless in the photos

Have had Neff cookers for years. Have just replaced 2 12-year old ones. We got a single multifunction and a combi microwave. Both have pyrolitic cleaning which is utterly wonderful.

Also have Bosch washing machine, and I agree with you that Bosch has more experience in laundry and Neff in cooking. They are owned by the same company, but the separate brands have concentrated on different areas historically. (I used to deal with them commercially).

Bosch - we have tried other makes but find that Bosch in our opinion our the best. I have just gone and got a new Bosch oven - which I love.

Also purchased a different type of dishwasher - I keep getting problems with it and can't wait until the warranty is up so that I can replace with a new Bosch dishwasher.

The Neff factory still exists, and still makes cookers within the Bosch group. I don't know if they make other things in the Neff factory, or if they also make cookers in other factories within the group. Probably they do.

I have a Neff single oven with the slideaway door, which is fabulous, and a compact combi above it which I use for most things. I'd recommend both and got them 'unboxed' from somewhere called Roy Waring South, much cheaper but brand new and just as good and with the usual manufacturer's 2-year guarantee.
