SMEG Highlights Linea Ovens, Dolce&Gabbana Designs, at AD Design Show
Italian appliance manufacturer SMEG showed the full breadth of its oven, refrigerator and small appliances lines at NYC’s recent Architectural Digest Design Show – including a range of full-size and small appliances designed in partnership with Dolce&Gabbana.
Besides fielding that attention-grabbing display of colorful appliances, SMEG also took the occasion of the show to introduce a new built-in Linea Series that includes 24- and 30-inch Convection Ovens, re-engineered specialty Speed and Combi Steam Ovens and a new “Classic” Coffee System, to be made available in the fall.
SMEG’s Linea Series ovens will have four-color TFT controls for optimal usability – and all of its 24-inch oven products will include a “smart” food-driven menu system that contains 50 automatic programs to guide users as they prepare everything from meats and vegetables to baked pasta dishes. Chefs will also be able to add 10 personalized programs to cook go-to dishes in a flash.
The re-engineered Speed and Combi Steam Ovens now have a 30 percent larger interior cavity space and are outfitted with SMEG’s EverClean coating, an easier-to-maintain enamel interior. Additionally, each oven has bottom heating elements.
The Speed Oven is now a three-in-one appliance, acting as a microwave and convention oven. The Combi Steam Oven, another three-in-one appliance, rather than featuring microwave functionality, leverages steam technology. Its internal steam generator and syphon system lets users load the correct volume of water at the beginning of the program by accessing the wand located on the inside right frame of the oven.
