Passion meets precision in Smeg's finest collection ever!

13/08/2018

The pinnacle of Italian design has been achieved with the release of Smeg’s finest collection ever.  A collaboration with renowned Italian architect, Guido Canali, has seen Smeg create a true culinary masterpiece, where passion meets precision in the most luxurious, comprehensive appliance collection to date.

Dolce Stil Novo, inspired by a 13th century Italian love poetry movement, means ‘Sweet New Style’.  This extensive collection of advanced appliances features minimalist styling in black Eclipse glass with refined copper or stainless steel detailing.  The look is one of clean, uninterrupted lines and outstanding craftsmanship where every single appliance is in perfect alignment.

The Dolce Stil Novo collection includes 60cm Thermoseal and Thermoseal Plus ovens; 45cm combi steam and speed compact ovens; 45cm blast chiller, wine cellar, coffee machine with sommelier, vacuum, warming and storage drawers; blade flame gas, induction and combi fuel cooktops; and an underbench wine cellar.

Key features are numerous; one of the collection’s world-first technologies is the blade flame - a continuous ring of vertical flame that guarantees maximum heat transfer with reduced heat dispersion.  This increases efficiency by at least 20 per cent when compared to standard burners.

The unique blast chiller is a multi-function appliance in the true sense of the word.  While quickly chilling cooked food to either the perfect refrigerator or freezer temperature, to minimise the risk of bacterial contamination and preserve the integrity of the food, there are also programmes for sanitising/Sashimi, beverage cooling, temperature holding, defrosting, proving, reheating, delay start and also a cleaning cycle.

The vacuum drawer has a highly sophisticated multi-level programme to ensure all foods, no matter how delicate, are perfectly vacuum sealed without damage.  It also has a chef function that interchanges compression and decompression cycles for fast-tracking the infusion of marinades.

The vacuum drawer is the vital link in sous vide cooking and optimal storage and preservation of cooked and raw foods.

Dolce Stil Novo’s Thermoseal Plus pyrolytic oven, with steam assist, takes home-cooking to a stellar level by utilising the same cooking techniques as those used by professional chefs.  Three levels of steam intensity ensure meats and fish are succulent and moist with minimal shrinkage, pastry is crisp and bread has a golden crust.

The collection’s 45cm wine cellar and sommelier drawer are two of the most elegant and beautiful inclusions in this ground breaking collection.  Both appliances are built-in and feature low vibration plus internals crafted in pure oak.  The underbench wine cellar has dual temperature zones to ensure all wines are cellared in ideal conditions while the sommelier drawer is an artisanal masterpiece complete with the highest quality sommelier tools for serving, storing and recording precious wines.

Dolce Stil Novo’s signature Eclipse black glass oven doors are integral to the sheer beauty of the collection – the black opaque glass delivers complete harmony with other appliances when not in use, but will then become clear when oven is turned on.

Dolce Stil Novo also excels in terms of its Diamond Service, an elite consumer care programme with a dedicated telephone number and email with a response time of just 24 hours or less.  The service also includes the option of a home visit by a fully trained demonstrator to take the owner through the features and programmes of their Dolce Stil Novo appliances.

Dolce Stil Novo, by Smeg, has already received three of the most influential international awards – Good Design® by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design; the iF Design Award; and the Red Dot Design Award.
