Internationally acclaimed Australian designer, Marc Newson has designed a range of kitchen appliances for the Italian brand Smeg Australia.

The collaboration with Newson has further enhanced the unique reputation of Smeg as a brand that works with leading architects and designers to ensure its appliances deliver ‘Technology with Style’.

The Marc Newson range comprises electric pyrolytic and vapour clean ovens, gas hobs and induction cook tops which offer smooth, flowing lines, energetic and distinctive use of colour and intuitive functionality.

The Newson thermosealed multifunction ovens embody the Newson love of colour and admiration of enamel as a durable, contemporary finish. The FP610 ovens feature a large touch control panel that is both intuitive and user-friendly.

The coloured, pyrolytic ovens have eight cooking functions, including:

- A rotisserie
- Two pyrolytic self-cleaning functions
- An extra large oven capacity of 79 litres
- The unique Thermoseal non-vented cooking system which ensures a perfectly controlled cooking cavity.

The black, white and stainless steel ovens feature nine functions and have a vapour clean mode instead of pyrolysis.

All ovens carry impressive energy consumption credentials having exceeded the highest Class A European energy rating.

The equally eye-catching 75cm gas cooktops are manufactured from a single piece of steel and feature five burners with highly efficient vertical flame technology.

And seven induction cooktops complete the Newson design aesthetic for Smeg – black frameless glass in four sizes – 30, 60, 70 and 90cm – with forward-positioned touch controls with eye-catching graphics in grey, gold or brick red that again are understood at a glance.

Features of the Newson induction include 15 temperature settings for each zone, automatic pan recognition, power boost, child safety lock, safety cut-out and 99-minute timer.

Another clever feature is the highly effective stop-in-temp-setting – this holds and maintains the temperature at the desired level.

The Marc Newson range of kitchen appliances from Smeg is available nationally from selected appliance specialists.
