Auto-clean ovens

Want an oven that does the elbow grease for you? The cavity in this Neff Hide and Slide is finished with catalytic liners. This special coating breaks down grease and fat as it cooks – so all you have to do is wipe it clean. 

Or you can banish scrubbing with a self-cleaning oven like the AEG 49106IU-MN Electric Induction Cooker that turns dirt into a fine ash.
