The Smeg Smart Chef system is a programme containing certain preset options, making it even simpler and quicker to cook your favourite dishes. The Smart Chef display offers a choice of symbols for cooking beef, pork, poultry, lamb, fish, vegatables, pizza, cake and biscuits. When you select one of these symbols, the oven automatically selects the cooking settings for the best results. For example, it will automatically select the favoured cooking temperature, cooking time, the correct function for cooking (selection of elements and/or fan), and even suggest the correct shelf number for placing food in the oven. The oven will automatically pre-heat, and signal when the oven is at temperature, and the automatic timer will signal when your food is cooked.
The options are automatically pre-programmed to suit a family serving (an easy-to-follow reference for these is in the instruction manual). If you have a larger or smaller serve, the time (and temperature) can be very easily adjusted to suit. Once you've tried out an option for the size of serving you cook regulalry, you can store the function just how you like it. You will then be able to select it from the list in future and cook with one-touch.
