Smeg presents its new range of Portofino cookers, inspired by the colours of the famous Ligurian town to bring some lively and romantic colours to the heart of the home. Portofino is a wonder amongst the olive groves, a jewel set in the most spectacular cove of the Gulf of Tigullio. The most famous village in Liguria is a destination for high society, the landing place for those in search of beauty and authenticity. But the attraction of this place lies elsewhere: in the colours and smells of the village, its harmony with the trees surrounding it and the reflections of the sea, immersed in the unspoilt nature of its promontory.
The new range of Smeg cookers is inspired precisely by these spectacular colours, surrounded by the land, sea and sky. Green, Italian red, yellow, orange, anthracite grey, black and white are the colours chosen by the Emilian brand to recount the part of the house where moments and emotions are shared.
Those choosing a Portofino cooker do so not just for the charismatic design, but also because of its innovative 126 litre, Isothermic Proof maxi-cavity. This new and exclusive oven cavity, with rounded corners and smooth, uniform walls, offers the maximum possible insulation and therefore the best energy performance on the market, class A+ rated, with a large oven and a reduction of up to 50% in preheating times compared to a traditional oven.
The oven is equipped with three fans with upgraded motors which increase and refine cooking performance. This makes the temperature uniform throughout the entire cavity, allowing you to cook evenly on all three levels, like with professional equipment.
A large and intuitive LCD display supports the user in obtaining the highest levels of performance by allowing them to precisely monitor all parameters set. The display also provides access to 20 automatic cooking programs, introducing users to the world of professional cooking. The oven door has a Soft Close function which closes the door softly, silently and automatically.
A large glass viewing window and a powerful oven light provide maximum visibility for food being cooked, even when multiple levels are in use at the same time. Oven lighting has been significantly increased compared to standard, by installing two lamps in the multifunction oven and four in the pyrolytic version. The side positioning of the lights allows you to precisely monitor all dishes being cooked, even when five levels are occupied at the same time.
Portofino cookers are available in Multifunction version with vapor clean function and multifunction pyrolytic with gas hob and pyrolytic with induction hob.
The gas hobs are equipped with solid full-size cast-iron grids which cover the maximum usable space of the cooker and guarantee constant performance over time. The linear and ergonomic design helps provide the cooker with both a professional look and a professional approach to cooking. The hob grids cover the hob right to the edge of the cooker’s profiles, allowing for perfect alignment with the cooker top when positioned in the slot-in solution.
