The pinnacle of Italian design has been achieved with the release of Dolce Stil Novo, 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;
Blade flame gas, induction and combi fuel cooktops;
45cm blast chiller;
Built-in coffee machine;
Underbench and built-in wine cellar with sommelier drawer;
Vacuum, warming and storage drawers.
Thermoseal Plus Steam Assist Oven
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, that pastry is crisp and bread has a golden crust without any intervention.
Blade Flame Cooktop
Smeg’s Blade Flame is a world-first in gas burner technology. A continuous ring of vertical flame guarantees maximum heat transfer with reduced heat dispersion. This increases efficiency by at least 20 percent when compared to standard burners.
Combi Fuel Cooktop
An architectural masterpiece the combi fuel cooktop combines four fast, efficient induction zones with an ultra-powerful triple crown wok burner able to reach an output of 21.6 mj/h. This is ideal for foods that require cooking over a high heat or for wok cooking. The Multizone induction system allows cookware of different sizes to be used at the same time, anywhere within the induction area with control and precision.
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 and delay start. There is 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 an essential accessory for sous-vide cooking as well as safe storage and preservation of food.
Wine Cellars and Sommelier Drawer
The collection’s wine cellars and sommelier drawer are three of the most elegant and beautiful inclusions in this ground-breaking collection. Both the 45cm built-in wine cellar and 82cm underbench wine cellar integrate seamlessly with the collection and feature external temperature control, a low vibration cooling system plus internals crafted in pure oak. The underbench wine cellar also has dual temperature zones to ensure wines are cellared in ideal conditions. The complementary 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.
