NEFF introduces connected appliances with Home Connect

Home appliance manufacturer, NEFF, has announced it has added connected appliances to its portfolio.

Enabled with Home Connect, NEFF customers will be able to remotely control and manage their oven, hob, hood, fridge-freezer, dishwasher or coffee machine via the Home Connect app. This is also linked with third party apps such as Amazon Alexa and IFTT (If This Then That), allowing users to control the NEFF kitchen via voice control.

Highlights from the collection include the B48FT68H0 Slide&Hide single oven, which can be operated using Amazon Alexa voice control, particularly useful when your hands are full. And when dinner is ready, the app sends a smartphone notification.

The added benefit of the Home Connect app is a huge and regularly expanded range of recipes to choose from. Once a recipe is selected, the app will display all ingredients, cooking time and temperature, and guides you through the preparation.

The app is also updated regularly with recipes and even has a Coffee Menu that is similarly updated with new coffees from all over the world.

Reducing any hassles associated with hob cooking is the NEFF T59TS5RN0 induction cooktop and D96IKW1S0B Creative Slim hood. Connected via Wi-Fi, the hood turns on with the cooktop and automatically adapts the extraction rate to efficiently deal with steam and cooking odours. Users can also change the light in the kitchen to suit the mood with the hood’s Ambient Light via the Home Connect app.

The benefits of connectivity extend beyond the kitchen. Activate the SuperCooling function to reduce the temperature of the KI8875D40 fridge-freezer. This means that when you add recently purchased groceries they will cool down quickly without effecting items already stored. For further convenience, the Home Connect app will also keep track of how many cycles have run on the S517T80D6E dishwasher and send a notification when the dishwasher tabs are running low.

Jo Eyers, Group Marketing Manager for NEFF, commented: “The future of food and cooking experience has arrived. With our new range of connected appliances NEFF’s Infinite Kitchen is opening up possibilities to experiment with technology but still be creative in the kitchen. With Home Connect, our appliances are more intuitive than ever, freeing up our cooks’ time to concentrate on what’s important – creating ever-more delicious meals for family and friends to enjoy.”
