The answer comes down to the needs of your own house – whether it’s a tribe of one or many, how you might like to eat and entertain, whether the family will grow up, get bigger or scale down and so. There are general considerations based on the nature of one’s lifestyle to take into consideration too. With so much in the air, how do you narrow down the answers?

Smeg’s compact combination ovens give the benefit of a secondary multifunction oven when needed it, but what’s the best?

The new Smeg Classic Speed Oven was developed to meet the needs of the busy home. Intended for those who perhaps find themselves preparing one too many instant meals, the Speed Oven comes with full multifunction oven technology built in, meaning faster cooking time. A full roast chicken dinner with potatoes and baked vegetables is just 30 minutes away with this machine.

Conversely, the Smeg Combination Steam Oven has been designed to harness the documented benefits of steam cooking. Steam cooking to known to help retain the nutrients of food, so this is a perfect fit for the health-conscious family. Perfect for seafood, vegetables, grains, curries and tagines, the Steam oven is a versatile appliance with the added capability for chemical free sterilization.

Smeg Compact are also ovens are available with an optional full glass door. When fitted with the glass door and paired with a warming drawer and installed as a bank, the full glass door cleverly creates an aesthetic that is identical to the Smeg Classic 60cm oven.
