What should i look for in an oven?

Built-in ovens come into their own when it comes to being flexible.

Internal capacity

The majority of Smeg single ovens offer a large 70 litre net capacity with 5 different cooking levels. Other single ovens offer a  smaller 65 litres accounting for in-built pizza stones. Both ovens provide plenty of space, however If you need an even larger oven, 90cm extra wide or double ovens models are available.

Oven functions

Smeg multifunction ovens offer great flexibility, ranging from grill functions for large meat cuts to slow baked cakes & casseroles using a static function. The most popular function is all-round Circulaire, perfect for multi layer cooking and baking. There are also more specific functions such as bread proving available.

Cleaning options

Smeg ovens come with an easy clean enamel interior, a special antacid lining which helps to reduce dirt adhering to the surface. Some models also have a vapour clean function which steams the cavity. Many models also offer pyrolytic clean functions, burning dirt to ash which can be wiped away.


In order to get the most out of your oven, its worth considering an oven with additional features such as a temperature probe for cooking meat perfectly, steam for healthy results,  and smegconnect for mobile access.
