The retro style aesthetic has hit mainstream with Smeg’s Victoria built-in collection of kitchen appliances delivering design choice like never before.

Melding the deliciously timeless aesthetics of the 50s with the cutting edge technology of the 21stcentury Victoria is proving popular in kitchens of varying architectural style – from beach or city house to country cottage and loft-style apartment.

In four colour options – white, black, panna and stainless steel – the collection comprises 60cm single and double ovens, both with pyrolytic cleaning, plus 45cm high compact models and warming drawers.

Jewel in the crown of the Victoria range is the SFPA6925 60cm multifunction pyrolytic oven with its 16 cooking functions (including proving and Sabbath), 20 SmartSense menus and soft close door.

The Victoria Speed Oven SFA4920MCN is another stand out with this compact oven combining circulating microwave power with traditional convection functions to dramatically reduce cooking times – just 30 minutes to cook a whole chicken to golden perfection (while retaining excellent texture, succulence and flavour).

The Victoria Compact Ovens – including the Speed Oven and Combi Steam Oven – are 45cm high and designed to be installed in a bank or tower of appliances.  They integrate seamlessly with the Victoria 60cm models in terms of both aesthetics and dimensions.  Fascias will align and controls will match – creating a customised cooking platform attuned to the user’s culinary tastes.  Add a 15cm high warming drawer beneath the compact oven for a totally aligned look.

The Smeg Victoria built-in collection is available nationally from specialist retailers.  Go to details.
