‘Opera’ is renowned for being an elegant, timeless and luxury cooking range. It was created for serious cooks and now it is getting a serious make over.


Smeg's new generation of Opera range cookers boast a fresh redesign with the addition of slick eclipse black glass, amongst a number of other design features and upgrades. Mirroring our 'Classic' built-in oven range, the stunning glass on the A3-81 appears black when switched off but when lit during cooking, it becomes translucent ensuring perfect visibility of the interior. What's more, the traditional clock has made way for a larger, touch control display setting time, minute minder as well as programming cooking. To complete the new aesthetic, the A3-81 has a larger, more prominent Smeg logo embossed on the storage drawer below, as pictured in the above image, courtesy of deVOL kitchens.

Offering solid build quality, easy to use controls and sturdy handles, the cooker also features closed door grilling, metal side supports for telescopic shelves and heavy duty cast iron pan stands.

It boasts a huge 77 litres multifunction main oven capacity, with eight oven functions as well as a smaller 40 litre conventional oven which has the added feature of a rotisserie for producing succulent roasts.

The huge six burner hob provides more than enough room for all your pots and pans and includes a powerful 4.2 kW ultra rapid wok burner perfect for creating stir-fries. As well as an electric griddle ideal for cooking meats as it browns the outside whilst keeping it moist on the inside.

Finally, the full-length storage drawer provides plenty of space for baking trays, roasting tins or plates.

Like the A3-81, the 90cm single cavity oven A1-9 has also been upgraded with the same striking Eclipse Black Glass, however this particular model has received a few extras!

The easy to use large LCD display allows functions and temperatures to be visible at a glance. Its easy guide technology offers 50 automatic programmes and 10 customisable recipe, allowing you to select the type of food you are preparing, how it is cooked and how much it weights, ensuring your meal is cooked to perfection. The time, temperature and function are calculated, it even tells you which shelf positon to place the food on, providing an extremely enhanced cooking experience.

It also has the technology to be able to defrost by time or weight, to prove doughs and allows food to be cooked in accordance with the provisions of the Jewish religious day of rest via the Sabbath mode.

Other features include; soft close door for smooth and silent operation, A+ energy efficiency, and triple fan technology, offering powerful heat distribution and more uniformed cooking. Pre-heating times are also significantly reduced due to the three fans, resulting in greatly improved cooking times.

The ovens immense 115 litre capacity provides huge cooking options as well as allowing much wider baking trays to be used. 

During 2018, the remainder of the Opera cooker range will gradually be reworked to receive the Eclipse Black Glass, Touch control display, and new style Smeg Logo.
