Smeg's first ever Speed Oven incorporates the features of its regular appliances, marrying convection cooking with microwave technology, designed to provide substantial reductions to cooking times.

Smeg Gets Speedy With New OvenThe Smeg SFA4395MCX Speed Oven is designed to cater to food lovers in a hurry, with Smeg stating it "dramatically reduces cooking times".

"The Smeg SFA4395MCX Speed Oven works on the principle that a combination of circulating microwave power with traditional convection dramatically reduces cooking times - just 30 minutes to cook a whole chicken to golden perfection, for example, while retaining excellent texture, succulence and flavour," Smeg states.

The Speed Oven provides a combination of cooking methods: microwave and fan-forced, microwave and grill, and fan-forced and grill, along with standalone functions, such as static and fan grill, and fan-forced
and microwave. In all, there are 13 functions, including defrost by weight, proving, Sabbath mode, keep warm and ECO light.

The Speed Oven, designed by Italian architect Guido Canali, sports a compact format, measuring 450 mm high by 600 mm, with Smeg stating it is "designed to sit seamlessly side-by-side with the brand's Classic 60 cm ovens or other Classic compact appliances, such as steam oven, coffee machine and even warming drawers".

Other features include an eclipse high-visibility glass door, with black opaque glass illuminating and becoming transparent when the oven in use, a soft-close door, 1,000 W microwave power, telescopic shelf guides, SmartSense Plus 50 auto-recipes, 10 personal programmable recipes, 40 L net capacity and three cooking levels.

Smeg states an EverClean enamel interior and vapour clean cleaning program, together with a tilting grill and flat glass door, ensure cleaning is "virtually effortless".

The Speed Oven is available nationally, priced at $2990 RRP.
