Over the last few years, Smeg has been working behind the scenes on an exciting new Made in Italy project. Extensive research, planning and testing, including working with Michelin-starred chefs, have all allowed Smeg to create a new oven platform designed to revolutionise cooking in the home.
With good food at the heart of everything we do, Smeg’s unrivalled passion for creating the best cooking experience and appliances has led us to this point. And now we are delighted to reveal the future generation of Smeg ovens, Galileo.
Omnichef, Smeg’s flagship model from the new Galileo oven range, uses steam, microwave, and traditional cooking together and is the first of our Multi cooking technology range to be released. so why should you choose an Omnichef oven?
All Omnichef ovens have the ability to use three different types of cooking technology:
Traditional cooking - for great cooking results, excellent heat distribution and even browning.
Steam cooking - for moisture and flavour retention with nutrient and vitamin high results.
Microwave cooking - for speed without ever compromising on the quality of food.
With so many cooking possibilities, you have full control over exactly how you like your food to be cooked and can take advantage of time savings of up to 70%.
Omnichef ovens have two different cooking approaches, both of which produce a professional level of cooking, save time, and make your cooking experience unique.
Multistep allows you to cook using traditional, steam and microwave functions sequentially whilst Multitech allows you to combine all three technologies together.
Yes, you read that correctly, Omnichef ovens can reduce cooking times by up to 70%. By combining oven heat, steam for moisture and microwave for speed, it takes just 30 minutes to cook a whole roast chicken with crisp, juicy results. That's not all, baked or roast potatoes take just 35 minutes, so time-consuming roasts are now a thing of the past.
Other dishes like Risotto take just 15 minutes when using an Omnichef oven.
The oven's smart cooking technology does all the hard work for you. Simply enter the type of ingredient you wish to cook, and its weight and the oven will work out the perfect temperature and time it needs to cook to perfection. To make things even simpler, there are also 150 pre-set recipes to choose from, so whatever your cooking experiences, you can create outstanding dishes with minimal effort.
The cavity of all Galileo ovens has been completely redesigned for better heat distribution which allows for even better cooking and browning results. The new airflow system also ensures no flavour transfer between dishes, so you can cook sweet and savoury meals all at once. Other improvements include LED multi-level lighting for better illumination *, a new smooth rounded cavity that has been welded for easy cleaning, a new easier-to-remove internal door, and soft hinges for soft, silent opening and closing of the door.
With all the cooking technologies you will ever need in just one appliance, an Omnichef oven allows you to free up valuable space on kitchen worktops and built-in units.
The ideal home magazine has voted Omnichef as their ‘Genius Kitchen Innovation’ award winner!
The judges said “Anything that makes life easier is a hit with us, and that’s why the Galileo technology from Smeg was the judge’s favourite. The range’s flagship Omnichef model has managed to reduce cooking times by up to 70%. You can roast a chicken in just 30 minutes or bake a potato in 20’
‘This revolutionary new cooking technology uses steam, microwave and traditional cooking all together for the ultimate cooking performance,’ says Heather Young, Ideal Home Editor.
Before our recent partnership, Michelin-starred chef Theo Randall gave his seal of approval after testing out our Omnichef oven.
He was amazed by the incredible technology behind the oven and its impressive (and speedy) results.
