The world of hi-tech, design-savvy kitchen appliances – once the domain of built-in models – is now within reach of large families and avid entertainers thanks to a move by one of the world’s most celebrated brands.

Smeg, the Italian family-owned company at the forefront of appliance design and technology – and winner of numerous international design awards – has released two freestanding, large capacity cookers featuring ground-breaking technology and the coveted design credentials of its legendary built-in sister-products.

The two appliances, from its renowned Symphony and Opera collections, feature hi-tech self-cleaning programmes and electronically-controlled oven environments – inclusions that were once only available in 60cm built-in appliances.

Both the Symphony CS9PGMXA and the Concert FSP9610X 90cm uprights feature thermoseal oven technology, pyrolytic self-cleaning and a large 126L capacity cavity.

Thermoseal ovens offer a perfectly controlled cooking environment that maintains an accurate atmospheric balance for optimum cooking conditions.  There are no temperature fluctuations and the results are exemplary every time.  Roasts are succulent, pastries crisp and cakes light.

Smeg’s pyrolytic cycle locks the oven door and heats the oven to around 500˚C.  This process carbonises food residue and burnt-on grease to a small amount of ash which can simply be wiped away with a damp cloth.  There is also an Eco Pyro low energy self-cleaining option.

Each oven cavity is finished with Smeg’s patented Ever Clean enamel which is highly durable and very easy to clean.  This process is the result of nearly 70 years of specialist enamelling expertise.

Each of the 90cm freestanding Symphony and Concert thermoseal/pyro models features a quadruple glazed door, two staggered halogen lights and six gas burners.  The Symphony CS9PGMXA model also has a rotisserie function.

Smeg’s collection of Symphony and Concert freestanding uprights, with thermoseal oven technology and pyrolytic self-cleaning, brings the latest oven technology within reach of those with large families and homeowners with high expectations of set-and-forget cooking appliances.
