What Oven Do They Use On The Great British Bake Off?

With The Great British Bake Off back on our screens, and past seasons now available on Netflix to binge-watch, I thought it would be the perfect time to look at what oven the home bakers use on the show.

If you’ve seen GBBO you’ll know the one I’m talking about. Everybody loves the sliding door that neatly tucks away, hidden underneath the oven. It’s a fantastic and very cool feature – but what oven is it?

What Oven Do They Use On The Great British Bake Off?

The oven they use on The Great British Bake Off is a NEFF Slide&Hide Oven.

To be more precise, I believe they use the N90 B57CS24N0B Slide&Hide Single Oven.

It’s easy to identify because of its unique Slide&Hide door, which is only available on Neff ovens. Then it’s a quick look at the front to narrow it down to Neff’s N90 range where the B57CS24N0B lives.

It also helps being a kitchen designer for over 10 years, as I’m looking at ovens every day. I can spot this one a mile away!

Features of The GBBO Oven

The Neff B57CS24N0B built-in single oven is a fantastic all-round oven packed with great features. It’s a multifunction oven with 13 cooking functions, such as bread baking and dough proving. Perfect for GBBO bakers and home chefs alike.

Key features:

  • Capacity: 71 litres
  • Oven type: Multifunction
  • Pyrolytic cleaning
  • Slide&Hide door
  • CircoTherm technology
  • Soft close door
  • Energy rating: A

The most unique feature (and the one that everyone talks about) is the Slide&Hide oven door. Neff has patented this design, so it is the only manufacturer that has this feature on its ovens. The door neatly slides away underneath the oven when you open it. This allows you to get up closer to the oven to place in or remove dishes.

It comes equipped with CircoTherm, Neff’s unique hot air system that allows you to cook different dishes simultaneously on all three levels without the smells and odours mixing into the different dishes.

It also comes with a quadruple-glazed door to keep the heat locked in and help to stop the outside of the door from getting too hot. So even if you have the bad luck of Stacey on Series 8 of GBBO and the door falls off while you’re baking, you can hold it up and keep cooking!

It also comes with a pyrolytic cleaning function. A feature I always recommend to my clients. It saves you the hassle of cleaning by hand or the expense of having your oven professionally cleaned.

Are There Other NEFF Slide&Hide Ovens?

Yes, there is a range of NEFF Slide&Hide ovens that all have different features and functions – and with that, prices. Neff has divided its range of ovens into different groups based on price and number of features.

It starts with N30 at the lower end of the range, moving up to N50, N70 and the top of the range N90.

There are different models available within each range as well, giving you lots of choices to find the perfect fit for your needs and budget. 

Here are just some of the other fantastic Neff ovens that have the Slide&Hide door feature:

What Other Appliances Do They Use On The Great British Bake Off?

There are lots of other great appliances used on GBBO, including the Kitchenaid Artisan Stand Mixer, Smeg Retro Collection Fridge/Freezer and a Neff warming drawer.

Kitchenaid Artisan Stand Mixer

The first of these stand-out appliances is the Kitchenaid Artisan Stand Mixer.

You may recognise this from your parents’ and grandparents’ kitchens – it’s an absolute classic. Kitchenaid started in 1919 with the stand mixer as its first product and has been going strong ever since.

In fact, the current model hasn’t really changed much in the past 50 years. If you are looking for a classic mixer that has stood the test of time, this is the one for you.

NEFF Warming Drawer

NEFF N70 N34HA11N1B Built-In Warming Drawer.

Another Neff appliance used in the Bake Off kitchen is the NEFF N70 N34HA11N1B Built-In Warming Drawer.

This large warming drawer is perfect for bread proving or keeping elements warm when preparing a meal. The version they use on the show is the deeper of the two types of warming drawers at 30cm high.

This is deep enough to hold 30 plates or a lovely large loaf of bread.

Smeg Retro Collection Fridge Freezer

The next item is the fridge/freezer you see in the GBBO tent. You may have noticed in the background this rather cool-looking retro fridge (pun intended).

The Smeg Retro Collection Fridge Freezer comes in a few different colour options, this retro-looking fridge freezer looks right at home in The Great British Bake Off kitchen. Just make sure no one takes your custard (looking at you, Deborah).

NEFF Domino Induction Hob

On top of the baker’s workbench sits a small NEFF induction hob. These smaller versions are known as domino hobs and typically have two induction zones, that can sometimes be joined together to create a larger flex-zone.

It’s difficult to pinpoint the exact hob, as I think it might be a slightly older model they still have on the show, the closest one available now is the NEFF N70 T63TDX1L0.

Induction hobs are great for bakers and pastry chefs as they offer precise temperature control, perfect for melting chocolate exactly right! 👌

Final Thoughts…

There you have it! Now you can get your very own Great British Bake Off oven.

The ovens (and appliances) used on The Great British Bake-Off are excellent options for both home bakers and contestants. I recommend Neff all the time to my customers, as you’ll get good value for money and a stylish look, with useful features built-in.
