They say it all begins by writing things down, so let’s get started with your list before you hit any home appliances store. Be clear with your goals so you don’t easily get lured by the first thing you see or by attractive bargains.
When buying kitchen appliances, it is not enough to pick items that appeal to your senses. They must, first and foremost, serve your needs. And not just for the moment, but in the long term. It’s a hefty investment so be sure to get the most out of it.
At Smeg, we focus on quality, aesthetics, ergonomics, and functionality. While we are headquartered in Italy, our wide range of appliances has gained a following from a wide market that encompasses five continents. Many have constructed Smeg kitchens as their dream kitchen.
Maybe you would like to assemble your own dream Smeg kitchen too, so we’re giving you a quick rundown of our kitchen appliances that you may choose from.
The Smeg range cookers are popular because they have both a cooktop and an oven, some models even have multiple ovens.They are free-standing kitchen units and are immediately ready for use. You just have to decide if you want a gas/electric or induction/electric combo. Options for sizes are 60cm, 90cm, and 150cm. Choices for aesthetic lines are the retro Victoria, colorful Portofino, and versatile Opera.
