We have had this oven for two months and it has stopped working, very disappointed as we payed a premium price, for what turns out to be an inferior product.
This was our first Smeg product and will definitely be our last.
Purchased in August 2020 at Harvey Norman.
Smeg rusting - replaced and great service!
Cooker itself is great, self cleaning function didn’t work, and it looks lovely. Splash back did start to rust and peel, I contacted Harvey Norman who were unhelpful and quite rude. I posted on here and smeg contacted me within 24 hours and a service provided contacted me within 3 days locally and my splashback was replaced last week :). Great service and very happy! Harvey Norman - not helpful and rude! Smeg were great:)

Poor design, poor quality
Unfortunately I have to put a very negative review here and it’s solely due to the poor design & quality.
I’ve had the oven for 4 years and in this time I have discovered it is near impossible to have the oven door clean as the process of cleaning the gap between the 2 glass requires the ENTIRE door removed.
Also, expect to see bubbling around the glass door which will lead to corrosion and rust. This will flake off. It appears I am not the first to comment on this and seems like it presents itself anywhere between 3-4 years.
It is such a be...autiful piece in the beginning but with time, it is looking very poor form. I expect a level of quality from SMEG, and especially the price tag on this item. However I would like to highlight the oven heats well and gets up to high temp which you may need for bread baking.
Purchased at Harvey Norman.
I would be all for a class action against Smeg. They sell themselves as an high end product.
We have had it for not quite 4 years and it looks crap. The back splash and the stove top terrible quality, paintwork is chipping and scratching. I beg anybody not to buy this sub standard product. Called Smeg and l was just dismissed. Come back St.George

This appliance along with matching range hood looks magnificent
I have only had this unit for about a month but I am very impressed so far. It just suits my kitchen perfectly and would look good in most kitchen styles/designs.
I purchased this to replace a free-standing Smeg 6 burner and range hood that was 19 years old (installed when we built the house). The range hood was ok but I have had service on the cooker twice in about 18 months and about 10-12 months after the last service I was back to 3 burners working only. The oven was always noisy but over the last few months was not heating properly and the...

Smeg warning! oven cookers major problems with electrics and rust on products see all reviews please google Smeg Rust!
Major problem with Smeg Products for rust and electronics breaking down within a couple years of purchase . I’d like to see a class action against Smeg for defective products. Don’t buy
Purchased in May 2018 at Harvey Norman for $8,000.00.
Paint chipping off the back of stovetop and on door of the front of the oven, disgusted with product as only have it with 4 years!! Looks awful. Used to love a meg products and appliance had the grey cooker for nearly 10 years before this and never had a problem. Please be warned and don’t buy the black appliance and no support or come back

Very easy to use
The oven is very functional, easy to use, self cleaning, cooks in no time all round rather than having to turn the pan around to cook. Fanforced makes it very easy.

Smeg are disingenuous regarding cashback offer
I purchased this oven as part of a $5k package of Smeg appliances when we were renovating our kitchen. The Harvey Norman sales person indicated that there would be a level of cash back which we were eligible for which sealed the deal.
About 8 weeks later I looked into receiving the cash back offer and discovered there was a time limit associated with it. As it turned out I had missed the submission date by 4 business days. I made the submission along with my proof of purchase and was informed that because it was past the due date that I was n...o longer eligible. At no point during the purchase was I informed about a cut off date. I notice Smeg run these promotion multiple times a year. I tried to raise the issue via email and social media and was basically ignored. Their level of customer service here is unbelievably bad. Smeg give the impression that they're attentive and proactive on this forum but if you try to engage with them in private I think you'll find the experience is very different. Another kitchen manufacturer I bought equipment from during this period had a similar offer running (with an identical cut-off date!). They honoured their cash-back offer without any issue. The entire experience has left a very bad taste in my mouth with Smeg. I will never purchase another Smeg appliance. I am currently seeking advice about this with a view to visiting the small claims court.
Purchased in March 2019 for $3,400.00.
I purchased a smeg Victoria tra 90 black stove I love it not only does it loook impressive it cooks really well I would recommend this oven to anyone one happy customer
Purchased in November 2017 at Harvey Norman for $4,590.00.
After paying over $4500 for this oven - Not worth it!
Problem with this oven when just coming out of box and plugging in.
Technician said - clock issue. That was fixed.
After doing burn off as required. I Started cooking normally and realised after taking meal I cooked out, metal particles on the base of oven and some kind substance coming out of fan and back panel.
Technician came out - he said burn out not done properly or it’s the grease from my cooking.
Manager rings me and said it was my cooking
So will not replace.
After cooking I found the cooking is not even. It cooks more on one side than the other. So you have to turn around.
I am so angry and will never buy a Smeg product again. I have been more happier with cheaper ovens.

Has taken our kitchen to the next level
Fantastic oven, cooks evenly and looks amazing, we could not be happier with our choice. Easy to clean and excellent functions, the gas cooktop is well set out and the soft close door is a bonus
Purchased in July 2019.
Not only is this oven good to look at in the kitchen, but works amazingly. Great size oven that fits large trays (which are included). Very easy to use. Cleans well with a warm cloth. Oven works so well and cooks everything equally. Highly recommended! Heaps of family and friends have purchased this oven and have not one word of complaint!
Purchased in February 2018.
Love this oven.
Has double fans.
Cooks evenly for a large bake.
The gas cook top is excellent.
Ezy to clean.
A trouble free oven.
Would buy this again.
Bought at Harvey Norman as a package deal with matching Range Hood.

Crap quality finish that apparently they can’t control
Works well as an oven but still ongoing after 5 months to have repairs done. Oven was damaged in the box when new. Have had the service guy here 4 times to repair it and every time he come with new parts that are also damaged under the packaging. Have rang head office in Sydney and they say they can’t control the quality of products smeg is sending. So if you want a good oven that looks like it’s been through the wars and doesn’t compliment your kitchen in anyway. And have spare time to keep letting the service guy come around, Buy a smeg or avoid if you’re not prepared for all the hassle that comes with it
Can’t get any better than this
Looks so good and works like a charm. I can not fault it at all. Oven works efficiently and is great . Cleaning is very easy and doesn’t take much time. I am very happy with my purchase should of done it sooner. Maybe my cooking will now improve, I have the tool
We love our SMEG oven!
We bought this model mainly for its good looks, as it works well with our black and white, retro-styled kitchen. We are new to fan-forced cooking, but found it works like a dream — we don't need to switch baking dishes around, and we can bake bread and roast vegetables at the same time without flavours transferring. The gas burners are very clean and efficient, and are graded in size for different styles of cookware.
The only drawback, as with the other SMEG products we bought at the same time, is that the instruction manual could have been a lot clearer.
Best value for money!
Not only does this oven look the part it also works like a dream! I can not fault it at all. Oven works superbly & fits 4 standard trays for baking. Great for parties & social events. Cooktop is easy to clean & heats up really well. Best value for money!
Great if the power goes out
Most of the house appliances are electric these days and it was sooo hard trying to find a gas burner so pleased when found this as it also matched the dark colours in the new kitchen Reno we done. The heat is great and the nobs are all a very good size and turn very well
Great.... Then good... And getting worse.
We bought this oven mid last year to replace the oven that was put in the house originally.
It has been great most of the time.
The oven does seem to be uneven, and it is something that is getting worse.
My wife uses this oven almost daily to bake various things, so it's a real workhorse.
However, it always seemed a little uneven. But lately we've noticed it more and more at one side is much hotter than the other.
If we put a tray that is covered the full width with cookies, one side is starting to burn while the other is raw.
We've been rotating the tray to achieve an even bake, but probably have to have it looked at if the trend continues.
Questions & Answers
Hi, I have purchased a SMEG and had it installed yesterday. The gas/plumber who installed the appliance is advising that our new kitchen cupboards installed above the freestanding stove are not compliant. This is due to the Instruction Manual which came with the stove stating on pg 23, chapter 5 s5.1 A 600mm (Overhead) measured from the highest part of the highest burner and 750mm for an exhaust fan. We do not have an exhaust fan, however do have a rangehood. He states we mustt comply with exhaust fan distance. Can you please advise what the manufacturers recommendation clearance is from stove to rangehood for the TRA90BLP9? Thanks for your response, Karen
Hi Karen. Thank you for reaching out can you kindly email us direct; email@example.com with a screenshot of this review so we can confirm with you in writing re the compliance. Kind regards Smeg Australia
Hi. We purchased the black Smeg stove approx one year ago. When looking at the backsplash from a particular angle we can see that one side has tiny scratches/cracks all over it. Almost like it can’t handle the heat of the hob nearest it? Any ideas?
Thanks for your enquiry. Could you please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and contact number along with a photo of the splashback and mark it to the attention of Lesley. Once she has this information, she will be in direct contact with you.
Yeah I had that also happen to my backsplash. Seems like crackled paint?
Reach out to SMEG. They may look after you like that did with me :)
Thank you, I have submitted an email to Smeg. Regards
