Smeg has recreated a 1920s kitchen icon in the form of the Victoria cooker. The enamelled steel freestanding range sports a seven-burner gas hob, two 68-litre ovens, a 2700w electric grill and a storage drawer. Each oven has six separate cooking modes including eco fan-forced, convection, grill and a baker’s function, and each can can reach full heat within ten minutes.
Oven doors are side-opening with enamelled interiors, removable roof liners and triple-glazed doors with removable glass for easy cleaning. The Vabour Clean function uses steam to loosen and soften baked-on food residue, and there is an optional pizza stone.
The gas hob has a wok burner, two rapid, two semi-rapid and two auxiliary burners – each with flame failure device. The teppanyaki plate can be placed over two of the burners to create a high-heat griddle. The entire unit is 1100 mm wide and available in black or cream enamel finish from retailers of Smeg.
