Built-in ovens come into their own when it comes to being flexible. Not only are there a variety of space saving installation and layout options to choose from such as in-column, in-line and built-under, there are also a number of complementary appliances that can sit seamlessly alongside the core oven, hob and extractor hood combination. This may include a built-in wine cooler, , compact ovenmicrowave or perhaps coffee machine

Choosing the right oven is crucial and at the centre of any buying decision, so we have put together a useful guide designed to help you select the best model to suit your needs as well as your kitchen.

Victoria: The Traditional / Retro Kitchen

The Victoria collection combines beautiful retro styling with up-to-date technology. Offering that real nostalgic look and feel, the range is characterised by its unique curved door profiling, distinctive chunky controls and signature retro detailing.

A great place to start is our award winning SFP6925PPZE 60cm multifunction single oven. Practical and easy to use, it features a number of useful settings and cook programmes, all operated via an intuitive LCD display. Access to and from the oven is a pleasure thanks to soft close hinges, whilst the oven is quick to install without the need for an electrician to hard wire. All Smeg single ovens operate simply from a 13amp plug for ease.

Smeg ovens also offer a handy optional pizza stone accessory, a standard feature on this model, as well as a handy pizza shovel, ensuring easy removal of your pizza just 5 minutes later.

What’s more, its ever clean enamel interior and pyrolytic cleaning function ensures you'll never have to scrub your oven again. By heating the interior to 500⁰c, any dirt and grease is turned to a fine ash, simply wiped away with a damp cloth. Finally, quadruple glazing and an automatic locking system ensures that outside door is cool to touch and safe for the home. An oven that is kept sparkling clean with minimal effort, now there’s a bonus!

Linea: Contemporary Sophistication

If you’re looking for a built-in oven that's ultra-modern in style, then the distinctive Linea range is worth a more detailed look. Symmetrical lines, balance and light characterise the glass fronted range, available in four premium finishes. Why not check out the SFP140NE model in sleek black glass. A colour touch control LCD screen allows the oven to be programmed with ease and budding cooks can set the oven using one of our smart sense preset functions, add favourite personal recipes, or even delay cooking until home from the office.

For easy access to the oven cavity, all Smeg ovens can be fitted with optional sliding telescopic rails, enabling the user to glide out the tray to check it without having to remove it from the oven. Selected models are supplied with telescopic rails as standard.

You might also consider partnering this model with a matching appliance such as a reduced height warming drawer, which can slot in neatly into space below. This is an ideal accessory for warming dinner plates, proving dough or keeping a dish warm. A larger 29cm high warming drawer is also available. 

Classic: Refined Industrial

Timeless design details give the Classic range its name, however it’s often the striking combination of stainless steel and black eclipse glass which is the real head turner. This stunning glass appears black when switched off but when lit during cooking, becomes translucent ensuring perfect visibility of the interior. This built-in range looks 'at home' in both a modern and traditional kitchen setting making it an incredibly versatile choice.

If you have enough space in your kitchen to play with, you might consider opting for a larger 90cm model, such as the new SF9390X1.

For peace of mind, all Smeg ovens are supplied with easy clean enamel interior and most feature a vapor clean function, lifting baked on dirt. Alternatively, another large capacity option is the DOSP6390X 60cm double oven, class leading in its specification, thanks to its unique pyrolytic self-cleaning offering in its main oven.

This 45cm high appliance is perfect for cooking fresh fish, meat or vegetables, locking in nutrients and moisture for excellent cook results.
