We purchased this Smeg oven back in 2003 and to be honest it has been the bane of my life. I am posting this review now as I am aware that this oven is still on sale and I would like as many people as possible to avoid purchasing this waste of space. However, I will make sure that I give as fair a review as possible.
It is a good looking oven and reflects the quality of the Smeg design. It has 4 rings plus a wok burner and a large 91 cm oven. THe oven runs on dual fuel. It does have a rotisseri function however, I have never been able to make this work.
The design however, this is where the quality ends for this oven. Over the years it has developed many faults. The fans have broken and been replaced,;the grill does not heat up sufficiently; the hinges have dropped and the oven is loosing temperature. It is also notoriously difficult to clean due to the design of the switches and nobs. Furthermore the timer, is impossible to set and will beep at you in random intervals. I have to say that this is over the space of 7 years however most of these problems have been occuring since year 2 (handily enough just after the warranty runs out).
To be fair however, it is still working so that is a plus point however, for the price of it I'm not letting it go until it falls over! I will just have to put up with its flaws!
