The Smeg SYD4110 Symphony Review
This is a great range cooker that is aimed at the mid to high level kitchen and comes with an impressive set of features that will be more than enough for most home cooks. Combine that with its impressive style and design with a lot of attention to detail and you have a cooker that you can be proud of. The 100cm width gives a lot of space on and inside the cooker with four cavities to store and cook as well as an impressive seven burners. The dual fuel gives you the best of both worlds with ultimate control on the hob with gas and electric ovens for the best performance.
Let’s have a look at the features individually and break down what the cooker can do in different areas. If there are specific things that you are looking for its worth reading through to see if this matches your needs.
The main oven is a large 68 litres to give you space to cook a number of things on different shelves at the same time. It has seven different functions to use the oven to its most effective for different styles of cooking and can also be used as a fan oven or a conventional oven for slow cooking. The oven has a side opening door for easy access which is important when you consider how large some of the pots and pans that can fit into this space can be. Inside the oven there is a tough enamel interior that is finished in an easy to clean surface which keeps maintenance and cleaning to a minimum. To keep the oven as efficient as possible the door is a well insulated triple glazed set up that keeps the heat in, which in turn keeps your energy bills low helping to give it an A energy rating. The oven also contains a built in grill that can be used with the door closed.
Even though this is called the auxiliary oven it is certainly not a second rate oven. It has the same large 68 litre capacity as the main oven and can be used as a fan or conventional oven with six functions for different styles of use. The energy rating for this oven is A and it also has a side opening door that is triple glazed. The finish is an easy to clean enamel like the main oven. This oven is a high quality oven in its own right and is as good as many main ovens on a lot of other cookers giving you the ability to cook a large amount of food to perfection. The in built grill gives maximum flexibility between ovens so there are virtually no compromises between the two.
There are so many options for grilling on this cooker it is tough to know which one to use. Each oven has an in built grill that can be used with the door closed and there is a separate grill compartment as well. The grill compartment has an extra deep 40mm grill tray for a large capacity and also a shelf for dedicated grilling. If both ovens are in use its very handy to have a separate grill and also somewhere to keep things warm if needs be.
The hob offers a powerful set up of seven gas burners that can also be converted to LPG use if you require. The hobs come in a variety of powers to give you control over the heat of the pans, two come in a 1.8kw power for medium size pans, two offer a larger 2.9kw power for larger pans, two smaller ones offer 1kw for the smallest pans and then last but not least there is the ultra rapid burner at 4.2kw which is great for woks. On top of the hob sits a heavy duty stand for pots and pans made of cast iron and provides a space to store things while cooking. For ease of use the burners come with an automatic ignition. This is a really versatile and powerful hob that is built to last.
There are a lot of very useful extra features and touches on this range cooker. They include a digital electronic programmable clock to manage all of the different food that is being cooked simultaneously. A really nice extra that is very handy are the two sets of partially telescopic shelves that come with the cooker so that dishes can be slid in an out of the ovens or grill with ease. There is a warm storage drawer that is handy for pots and pans and keeping things warm while you are cooking.
Style and Finish
The finish is available in stainless steel and gloss black to fit most modern kitchens. The Smeg SYD4110 Symphony looks great with a lot of attention to detail. The oven doors are a clean finish that look modern and are easy to clean and the hob looks robust but well finished. It definitely has a modern feel with detailed hob dials which are minimalist and stylish. This is a cooker that will compliment any high end kitchen.
Rounding It Up
Summing up this range cooker I would say it is an all round great buy and an asset to its owners. The oven capacity and functions on both ovens give a lot of space and versatile functionality with three potential grilling spaces. The hobs are powerful and well built. This will enable you to cook at a high end for a lot of people whilst also looking great. When it comes to design the Smeg range cookers will fit into any kitchen layout adding style and a modern look and all of this come at a modest budget.
We highly recommend this cooker and it has many fantastic reviews from a lot of very happy customers.
