We can imagine that the colors and rounded shapes of Smeg‘s small appliances make you smile, and we understand why. These appliances, whose design and technology are subjected to rigorous quality processes, have become in recent years the icons of good taste in the modern kitchen, because they appeal to the savoir faire of the golden 50s.
But why is the vintage touch of Smeg’s 50’s Style line a favorite among decorators and interior designers? Because the combination of beauty and sobriety with state-of-the-art technology and premium materials make them the perfect appliances to add a touch of style to any kitchen.
It’s worth mentioning that although these Smeg appliances have that retro look that makes you fall in love, these are appliances with modern technology. Their aesthetics probably remind you about the ones you used to see at grandma’s house or even in old movies, but don’t be fooled by their size or their beauty. These are revamped versions of those devices and feature innovations in design, usability and power.
That being said, we are going to introduce you to some of the most popular appliances from the wide range of options that Smeg has to offer you in two lines that we’ve called: whipping the batter…and everything else, and happy mornings.
Whipping the batter… and everything else
Blenders, food processors, stand mixers, and hand blenders/mixers are 4 appliances whose design and functionality you’ll want to have in your kitchen.
Smeg’s 50’s Style stand mixer is a classic. This is an appliance made of resistant materials (base and cup) with 3 preset functions that’ll allow you to break ice, create creamy shakes, and make other mixtures (soups, creams, etc.) (see operation video).
When it comes to the hand blenders and mixers, we can only tell you that they are works of art manufactured to help you create in the kitchen. The first one, designed by Matteo Bazzicalupo and Raffaella Mangiarotti (Deepdesign) has a backlit display on its handle whose interface is easy to use and disappears when the appliance is turned off.
The hand blender is a powerful appliance with stainless steel blades and Flowblend system. This means that it’ll allow you to blend and chop the hardest fruits and vegetables, with the guarantee that you will obtain the smoothness and texture that your recipes need.
And finally, the food processor is one of the best thought-out appliances in its category. This is a robust, durable, powerful (800 W) and efficient appliance (10 speed options to suit every recipe), which is also easy to use and clean.
There’s nothing like starting a morning with a good coffee or tea, a freshly squeezed citrus juice and perfect toast. Well, if those are your first three desires of the day, Smeg can grant them to you through a selection of appliances of great usability, efficiency and beauty.
Coffee or tea? This no longer a complex dissertation. The complicated thing will be to choose between the options that Smeg has for the preparation of the first of these beverages.
In this sense, the Italian brand includes in its portfolio not only the classic espresso machine, but also a super automatic coffee machine and a drip-filter one. And all of them have such a charming design that we would understand if you want to purchase all three. It’s worth mentioning that both the espresso machine and the drip-filter coffee machine won the Good Design Awards.
Also, if you prefer tea or infusions instead of coffee in the morning, don’t worry because Smeg also thought of pleasing you. The kettles of this brand made of stainless steel have a cordless base that makes them practical, safe, and functional appliances.
As far as the citrus juicers and toasters in this line are concerned, we can tell you that while they share the fundamental qualities of their peers, their fundamental premise is food safety.
The juicer is the best example of this. Although we are talking about a robust and powerful device (70W motor) made of anti-corrosion materials, it integrates a novelty: TRITAN, an innovative material that doesn’t release spores in juice.
On the other hand, Smeg toasters are appliances that perfectly combine ergonomics and style with functionality. You just have to choose the one that suits your needs, as the brand offers 2 and 4-slice toasters in double and quadruple versions.
Now, presented in these two broad ranges, we must tell you that there are other options of devices manufactured by the brand, and all designed under the same principles of quality and ergonomics. But that’s not all. The complicated part won’t be precisely when you have to choose which ones you need for your kitchen, but when you have to decide among the variety of colors (white, black, red, pink, blue, beige and mint) that the brand offers because you will love them all.
