Omega Appliances  provides the new CSA150X freestanding cooker from Smeg. A strong trend in kitchen renovation, both here and throughout Europe, is towards the upright cooker whereby the cooktop and oven is combined in one appliance, preferably in an all satin stainless steel, semi commercial design.

The Italian kitchen appliance specialist Smeg has launched a 150cm wide CSA150X freestanding cooker. The CSA150X freestanding cooker is truly an appliance for the savvy home cook, this double oven, seven burner showpiece exudes style and outstanding performance.

The main 90cm oven has a 78L (nett) capacity and nine cooking functions – including fan-forced, fan grill, rotisserie, bakers’ function and static bake. The smaller, 60cm oven, has eight cooking functions, a special pizza cooking mode and a 56L (nett) capacity.

Both ovens can be pre-programmed to start and stop cooking using the stylish analogue LED electronic clock programmer. They also have triple-glazed removable oven doors (for easy cleaning), stay clean oven liners and a cooling fan to ensure the exterior surface remains cool to the touch.

The seven burner gas hob, complete with two ultra-rapid wok burners and one fish burner, has a centrally placed electric griddle with Teflon coated plates. There are also cast iron trivets, automatic electronic ignition and automatic flame failure device.

The entire design and performance of the CSA150X remains faithful to Smeg’s design signature that is classic, understated styling in satin stainless steel.

The 1500mm wide K7088D is the perfect accompaniment for the 1500mm wide CSA150X. This beautiful Smeg double rangehood is quite literally two separate rangehoods incorporated in one beautiful, clean-lined satin stainless steel platform suspended from two satin stainless steel exhaust shafts.

Each rangehood system, which can be used separately or simultaneously, removes 1073 cubic metres of air an hour (gross), has four speeds, a five-minute delay-stop control, a 30 hour grease filter cleaning prompt and a 120 hour charcoal filter replacement prompt.

The K7088D also has a total of four halogen lights evenly distributed along the length of the platform, which not only gives illumination but also ensures shadow-free cooking. And when working simultaneously, the twin motors remove in excess of 2000 cubic metres of air an hour (gross).
