NEW VIVOSCREEN MAX - PREMIUM DISPLAY OVENS

Discover a new generation of intuitive ovens, set to change the way you cook forever

20/03/2020

The oven is at the heart of every kitchen. It is responsible for the majority of cooking within the home and therefore it is crucial when choosing an oven that it meets all your all cooking needs. The perfect oven should heat up quickly, cook evenly, be easy to use and enhance your kitchen with an aesthetic that complements it. Smeg ovens have always had these important features but now exciting new additions have been introduced to the range offering even more technology, intuitiveness, and precision than ever before.


One of the most noticeable improvements is a large full colour VIVOscreen MAX premium display. Measuring in at 6”x3” (15x5.2cm), this extra wide screen allows more information and functions to be shown, which are easy to read, simple to use and very intuitive. Navigating through the new display is easy with full touch vertical and horizontal scrolling and by simply holding down any item on the display for 3 seconds a pop up will appear to explain its function.



High definition images
beautifully illustrate the extensive range of automatic programmes for smart cooking. Visualised with mouthwatering food images to really get your taste buds going, the Smart cooking option has up to 100 automatic recipes to choose from and each dish will suggest the cooking function, temperature, duration and even the cooking level for your chosen dish. All of these can then be completely customized.

If you prefer to create your own recipes, then the My recipes section allows you to store up to 64 of your own favourite dishes into the memory of the oven. The cooking function, temperature, time and your own name for the dish will be saved, making the oven quick and simple to use for everyone. Alternatively, if you like to revisit ‘go to’ meals at home, then the history option will remember the last dishes you cooked so you can view and select the last programmed or personal recipes that were used, saving you time and effort.

There are also 3 timers which can be set up independent of cooking, perfect for roast dinners where different elements require different timings.
Steam ovens with a VIVOscreen MAX display have the added benefit of a special sous vide function. This function provides delicate steam cooking of food inside a VCOOK bag, leaving food juicy and tender which melts in the mouth.

To ensure perfect cooking results every time, a temperature probe is included which monitors the core temperature of the food via a sensor located at the tip. By inserting the temperature probe into the thickest part of the meat (avoiding bones or fat), roasts, pork loin, and various cuts and sizes of meat can be cooked precisely to perfection. This not only allows complete control over your cooking, producing personalised results just to your liking, but produces more flavour and truly succulent dishes.

These ovens also benefit from having WIFI capability so by using the SmegConnect smart App, you can control, operate and monitor the oven via your phone or tablet. This is perfect for preheating the oven on your way home from work or to help others by setting up the oven remotely for them. You can then change the oven temperature whilst out walking the dog or adjust the cooking timers whilst putting the kids to bed, there are so many possibilities! Browse the online cookbook at your leisure for suggestions based on the ingredients you have at home. Each recipe has been tried and tested by Smeg, from traditional favourites to exhilarating new flavour combinations so you will never be stuck for ideas again. You can also create your own personalised recipe book, saving your favourite dishes complete with ingredients, preparation steps and cooking parameters so that the oven is already pre-set for cooking.
Feeling social? The SmegConnect App allows you to connect via Facebook if you wish to share a special recipe or use WhatsApp and email to share your shopping list, so friends and family can see all the ingredients used in your meal.
With our busy lifestyles these tools are indispensable, and the ability to remotely and precisely control your oven will make your life simpler, allowing you to get the most out of your appliance.

A smaller VIVOscreen display measuring in at 4”x3” (9.5x5.5cm) is also available with the same impressive features as the VIVOscreen Max. In addition, these displays also have a Multistep cooking option, where you can set up to 3 cooking steps in one dish, so you can Steam in step 1 to make meats juicer, bake with step 2 to switch to dry heat and then grill at step 3 using radiant heat to give food the perfect browning.
These new ovens are available in the following aesthetics: Dolce Stil Novo, Linea, and Classic.
