Smeg introduces new compact combination steam oven

Into Linea range

The SF4140VC Linea compact combination steam oven is one of the new, luxury additions to leading appliance brand Smeg’s compact ovens collection. Finished in stainless steel, this 60cm model has an energy rating of A+ and features an interactive touch control Easyguide colour LCD display, which is very easy to use and gives the model a sleek, sophisticated appearance

With a reduced height of 45cm, the SF4140VC satisfies the demand for high performance products that fit into the smallest of spaces, and looks stunning when installed above one of Smeg’s Linea warming drawers.

Offering 12 functions including Circulaire element with fan, which allows users to cook with hot air when cooking with steam isn’t required, and an impressive 50 automatic programmes, this steam oven offers a whole host of key features that will appeal to busy, modern families. The highly practical Vapor Clean programme cleans the oven using steam generated by pouring water into the hollow at the base of the oven, while the interiors are finished with Smeg’s signature Easy Clean enamel, which protects against the build-up of cooking residue.

The SF4140VC has three cooking levels and a net capacity of 41 litres. The combination of closed door grilling and an air cooling system keeps cooking smells inside the oven and out of the kitchen and helps to reduce energy consumption. Other functions include keep warm, reheating and Sabbath, which allows the oven to work without any interaction and was developed especially for the Jewish community.

Joan Fraser, Smeg’s product training and development manager, says: “The new SF4140VC Linea compact combination steam oven is a fantastic luxury addition to our range of compact ovens. Steam ovens are becoming a more popular choice due to their health benefits as more vitamins and minerals are retained compared with more conventional cooking methods. In addition, you can multi-cook many different types of food at once without any flavor transfer, making them highly appealing to busy individuals and families alike.”

The SF4140VC measures 597mm wide, 548mm deep and 456mm high and costs around £1099.
