As Smeg leads the charge.

Smeg has released its new Linear collection of ovens and cooktops in light-reflective white glass and stainless steel. The collection comprises 60cm and 70cm ovens, together with compact ovens, coffee machine, warming drawer, induction hobs plus gas-on-glass cooktops in two widths, 72cm and 60cm.


Technology features prominently in the new range from the SmartSense Plus step-by-step cooking guide using the TFT colour display to Thermoseal oven technology for optimum cooking conditions.  Additional standard inclusions are a soft door close, Ever Clean enamel, Cool Door technology and the choice of pyrolytic or vapour clean oven cleaning functions.


The 60cm ceramic glass cooktop features ultra-low profile white enamel burners with the energy efficient vertical flame technology. The durable ceramic glass resists heats of up to 800 degrees Celsius.

The SmartSense Plus induction cooktop provides complete control and accuracy over temperature and cooking times. Each zone can be pre-programmed so it will heat to full power and then automatically reduce to a pre-determined level. A stop and go function means the whole cooktop can be paused if the user needs to leave the room, and then all previous settings will be reactivated. There is a choice of sizes in both gas and induction cooktops with many options available on the 60cm and 45cm built-in ovens.


RRPS start from $1,690 for the warming drawer, $2,590 buys the five burner ceramic glass cooktop and the 70cm oven with 17 functions retails at $5,090.
