  • AQUATEST AQUATEST

    All Smeg dishwashers have an aquatest feature. A specially developed infrared sensor measures the clarity of the water in the tub at regular intervals and decides whether to heat the water for the pre-wash cycle or to move on to heat the water for the wash cycle. The aquatest feature is incorporated in the AUTO cycle/s - it keeps consumption of water and energy to a minimum, depending on the degree of food soil on the dishes.

  • Bottom heat Bottom heat

    This function is ideal for foods that require extra base temperature without browning, e.g. pastry dishes, pizza. Also suitable for slow cooking of stews and casseroles.

  • Bread Proving Bread Proving

    Air at 104°F provides the perfect environment for proving yeast type dough mixes. Simply select the function and place dough in the oven for allotted time.

  • Broil Broil

    Heat is generated only at the centre of the element, ideal for smaller cuts of meat.

  • Broil + European Convection Broil + European Convection

    Broil + European Convection

  • Circulaire with upper element Circulaire with upper element

    The addittion of the upper element adds extra heat at the top of the oven, where extra browning is required.

  • Convection broil Convection broil

    Please note: cooking in this mode is conducted with the door closed. The fan reduces the fierce heat from the broiler, providing an excellent method for broiling a range of foods; chops, steaks, sausages etc. without having to turn the food during cooking. This gives good results, reduces drying out of foods, and gives even browning and heat distribution, the top two racks being recommended for use. The lower area of the cavity can also be used to keep other items warm at the same time.

  • Convection with bottom heat Convection with bottom heat

    This combination quickly completes the cooking of foods that are ready on the surface, but require more cooking inside, without further browning. Suitable for any type of food.

  • Convection with intensive broil Convection with intensive broil

    The combination of the fan and top element provides more uniform heat penetration. Dishes are lightly browned on the outside and still moist on the inside. Ideal for au gratin dishes, finishing roasted vegetables.

  • Convection with top and bottom heat Convection with top and bottom heat

    The elements combined with the fan aim to provide more uniform heat. This is a similar method to conventional cooking, so pre-heat is required. This is not as effective as european convection cooking but can be used to cook biscuits and pastry.

  • Defrost Defrost

    The circulation of air at room temperature enables quicker thawing of frozen food, (without the use of any heat). Ideal for use prior to cooking of readymade dishes, or cream filled products etc.

  • Delay Timer Delay Timer

    A standard feature on all Smeg dishwashers is a delay timer. This feature allows you to select the required wash program and delay the start of the cycle for up to a maximum of 12 hours. This way the dishwasher fits in with your schedule.

  • ECO ECO

    The Eco setting is a fast preheat function, which combines broil, fan and lower element to achieve optimum energy efficiency. Only to be used prior to selecting the main cooking mode.

  • Electronic display Electronic display

    To give a visual reminder of the options selected.

  • Energy Star and ISO14001 Certified Energy Star

Energy efficiency is important to Smeg and our technicians are constantly working to keep the energy, and water, consumption of each dishwasher as low as possible. ENERGY STAR certified products use less water than conventional dishwashers, and approximately 40% less energy than the federal minimum standard for energy consumption. By choosing an ENERGY STAR certified product you are helping to preserve the environment without compromising on product quality or performance.

  • European convection European convection

    The combination of the fan and circular element around it, gives uniform heat distribution with no cold spots. This has benefits - no preheat if cook time is more than 20 minutes, no flavour transfer when cooking different foods the same time, less energy is needed, and it cooks at 10% quicker than a normal oven.

  • European convection with bottom heat European convection with bottom heat

    The addition of the lower element adds extra heat at the base for food which requires extra cooking.

  • European convection with top and bottom heat European convection with top and bottom heat

    The use of the fan with both elements allows food to be cooked quickly and effectively on a number of oven racks. Ideal for roasts that require thorough cooking. There is no transference of smells or flavours when using this function. This function offers a similar result to rotisserie, it moves the heat around the food, instead of moving the food itself, enabling any size or shape to be cooked, and not only items that will fit onto a rotisserie.

  • Fan + circulaire + microwave Fan + circulaire + microwave

    Fan + circulaire + microwave

  • Intensive broil Intensive broil

    This allows rapid cooking and browning of foods. Best results can be obtained from using the top rack for small items, the lower racks for larger items, such as chops or sausages. Cooking using this method should be carried out with the door closed, unless instructed to do otherwise.

  • Intensive/turbo setting Intensive/turbo setting

    When extra fast extraction is required

  • Microwave Microwave

    Penetrating straight into the food, microwaves cook very quickly and with considerable energy savings. Suitable for cooking without fat, they are also able to thaw and heat food without altering its original appearance and aroma. The microwave function can also be combined with conventional functions with all the resulting advantages. Ideal for all types of food.

  • Microwave + broil element Microwave + broil element

    To achieve a combined cooking with broil that cooks the outside whilst assuring an internal cooking thanks to the microwave function.

  • Microwave + circulaire Microwave + circulaire

    To achieve a combined cooking with ventilated heat that cooks in short time thanks to the rotation of the warm air and the microwave.

  • Pizza function Pizza function

    The simultaneous operation of these three elements ensures an optimum cooking facility, ideal not only for pizza but also for cookies, quiches and flans.
