According to the company, the two new models feature Smeg’s exclusive ‘vertical flame technology’ which conserves energy by directing the flame vertically, unlike conventional burners whose flame is angled away from the pot thereby creating heat wastage.
The cooktop is a single, low profile sheet of frosted graphite glass that sits flush with the kitchen bench, with the sculpted cast iron trivets on feet of red silicone. The control knobs are translucent polycarbonate and sit conveniently at the centre front of the appliance.
The Smeg PVA750 is a 74cm wide sheet of frosted graphite glass with five burners – a centrally placed ultra rapid of 5kW, a rapid, two auxiliary and one small burner.
The PX140 meanwhile, has four burners (side by side) on one continuous piece of 100cm wide stainless steel just 40cm from front to back.
Ignition is automatic electronic and burners range from an ultra rapid to the left, a rapid to the right and two auxilliary in between.
The Smeg PX140 retails for about $2190 and the PVA750 $2490.
