A 7 function oven on the top right is accompanied by a 6 function oven on the bottom left, each oven offering fanned or conventional cooking, a grill and an easy clean enamel interior lining the generous 63 litre cavity. The separate grill cavity houses a variable 2.7kW grill for closed door grilling, leaving the fourth cavity (bottom right) as functional storage space. Seven gas burners sit on the hotplate, including a powerful 4kW ultra rapid burner, and robust cast iron pan supports continue the period feel. Standard accessories for the Victoria include a Teppenyaki griddle, grill trays and trivets and partial telescopic shelves – extra shelves will be available as optional extras, as will a pizza stone and pizza shovel.
The Smeg Victoria will appeal to those looking for a classically styled cooker to sit perfectly in a traditional kitchen environment, but who also want both the kudos and the reassurance of owning a Smeg appliance. Price is yet to be confirmed but is expected to retail at around £2200.
