...without intermingling flavours or aromas.
You read that correctly! We are going to tell you how you can cook three separate dishes in one oven, without compromising any of them.
NEFF's CircoTherm® 3D technology allows you to simultaneously cook, roast and bake. In turn, this reduces the time you need to spend in the kitchen and is also more environmentally friendly than cooking three dishes individually. You'll find 3D CircoTherm technology in NEFF N50 single and double ovens.
Circotherm® uses a powerful metal fan to extract air from the oven and redirects it to specially created ducts towards the back of the oven.
There is also no need to preheat the oven as the Power Boost function with the 4D CircoTherm® system can be used for a short burst of heat to warm the oven quickly. Hot air is directed at food to create a seal that improves moisture and prevents flavour transfer. The 4D system boasts all the benefits of 3D CircoTherm® technology and is available in the N70 and N90 models.

The Bootility room (yes, you are reading that right we haven't misspelt utility) is growing in popularity. Many of us have had to rethink the way we use our homes during the pandemic. Kitchens became homeschools, offices and where we (relentlessly) prepared all our meals during the lockdown.
Now, with the easing of government restrictions, our kitchen will hopefully be used for more social occasions. The new trend for open spaces that connect the indoors and outdoors spaces to create impactful and useable space. But, having a utility or Bootility enhances the way you can use your home. Isolating louder appliances, like washing machines and dryers, will provide a much more serene environment in which to socialise or indeed continue to work from home as many businesses explore a combination of virtual and office-based work. So that means no more spin cycles during your conference calls!
The Bootility, which is a functional room for everything from your appliances to pet food storage, to boot/coat/shoe and sink is a great way to keep your open-plan space from feeling cluttered. It also provides additional hygiene as there should be less transfer of mud and outdoor debris from more practical tasks entering the kitchen.
Just because the area is practical, doesn't mean it can't look great and feel like an extension of your kitchen. Using the same style cabinet and worktop as you have in your kitchen will create a cohesive design (and you won't feel like Cinderella!).
So if you want to explore what a new kitchen with a separate Bootility room could do for your home, contact us today or visit our showroom.

Halo Interiors specialise in English and German kitchen design. We work closely with the German kitchen manufacturer, Rotpunkt.
Rotpunkt will be undertaking a three-year, multi-million euro investment plan to boost its training capabilities and manufacturing. This hearty investment will see an increase in their factory space, a new showroom and training centre where their extensive product range will be displayed.
Rotpunkt also realise the importance of sourcing sustainable materials to aid the reduction of their carbon footprint. With this in mind, they are launching a collection of furniture this year focusing on sustainability, which will add to their already impressive sustainability credentials (read more here) which are certified by not only the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) but meet the F**** Standard for emissions of formaldehyde, CARB2, EO5 and Nordic Swan Standards for their Greenline BioBoard.
Matt Phillips, Head of UK Operations at Rotpunkt tells Creative Build Magazine “We strive to make every client feel part of the Rotpunkt family with our excellent customer service. That is the secret to our continued success. We pride ourselves on our attitude, our ability to establish and maintain positive relationships with the people we are working with, and our understanding of their needs and requirements." Rotpunkt's people-focused mentality means both their staff and their clients are at the centre of their work. One example of this is in their heavy investment in wearable technology for their dispatch team (Exoskeletons).
The Rotpunkt team aren't strangers to change. In their 91 years of trading, they have evolved from a cigar box manufacturer to a sewing box and wooden toymaker and are now best known for their internationally exported kitchen brand. Their investment will see them continue their maturation up to, and past, their centenary in 2030.
So, if you want to want to tap into over 90 years of design expertise, along with environmentally friendly manufacturing and design, talk to Halo Interiors about creating a Rotpunkt kitchen now!
Induction hobs are growing in popularity and are increasingly the hob of choice for those installing new kitchens and are likely to dominate the market moving forward. Venting hobs combine the technology of induction cooking with slimline extraction seamlessly integrated into their design. This allows you to have more flexibility in where you place the hob in your new kitchen.
As well as looking more modern, sleek and streamlined, induction hobs are also more environmentally friendly. They are more energy-efficient than their gas counterparts and as they only heat the pan when it is in situ, do not lose excess heat.
NEFF N90 T58TL6EN2 hob is just one of their suite venting induction hobs. Here we explore the key features and benefits that make this the perfect hob for your home.
Automatic Air Sensor and Home Connect Technology
Smart technology is at the heart of the trend towards incorporating induction hobs into the home. Not only is the N90 T58TL6EN2 easily controlled from the Home Connect app on your phone it also uses automatic air sensor technology to sense steam and combat cooking aromas with the touch of a button. You won't need to manually adjust as it automatically turns itself up or down as and when needed.
Reduce background buzzing
You may already use an extractor to dispel steam and aromas from your kitchen. If yours makes an audible humming sound that you can hear in other rooms, you will love NEFF's reduced noise venting options. Their 90 T58TL6EN2 benefits from lower noise levels meaning you can hear the sizzle of your steak (or the radio if that is more your style)!
This hob features three separate cooking zones that provide boiling, simmering or warming heat. You can place your induction pan anywhere within the Flex Induction zone to heat it where it stands (as opposed to set hob rings other appliances have). You can also use the power transfer to move your pot and the hob will recognise the size of the pot and previous cooking temperature so it can transfer these settings to the new location.
You will also be able to use the cooking sensors to provide consistent levels of heat to stop overboiling and burning.
You only have to lift a finger
Lastly, you can control all the settings on your hob easily with the patented TwistPadFire®. this removable button is easy to use, easy to clean, easy to remove (leaving you that sleek, level surface when not in use and provides added safety for family homes.
If you are considering a new kitchen and would like some help to find the perfect hob for your home, talk to Halo Interiors today.
Making your kitchen more sustainable is something you may already be doing. If you recycle, prevent food waste, use eco-friendly cleaning products or even grow your own window ledge herbs, you are doing your bit to help keep our planet healthy. That being said, have you ever given any thought to how sustainable your actual kitchen is (think units, fixtures and fittings)? If you are looking for a new kitchen you needn't compromise the style or quality for it to be sustainable and kinder to the planet.
Halo Interiors work with kitchen supplier Rotpunkt to ensure our kitchens are sustainable as well as stylish. Rotpunkt kitchens use Greenline BioBoard which is made of, among other things, fast-growing yearly corn. Due to its high levels of natural compounds, it can be recycled, ensuring less material ends up in landfill.
The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international non-profit organisation for the protection and management of forests. Greenline BioBoard has been PEFC certified which means any wood used is guaranteed to come from sustainably managed forests.
BioBoards' accolades don't stop there, the new Greenline BioBoard Gen2 meets the worlds strictest standard for chipboard (F**** Standard for emissions of formaldehyde) and has CARB2, EO5 and Nordic Swan Standard eco-accreditations.
If that wasn't enough to convince you of Rotpunkt's dedication to sustainability, then their CO2 site balance sheet provides information about their reduced CO2 emissions and their energy-efficient machinery to keep them hitting their goal of 100% climate-neutral production.
So now you know you will be playing your part, why not browse some Rotpunkt kitchens? If you want to know how the new Rotpunkt kitchen could work for your home, contact us today.
