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.
Customer service please contact me!!
I purchased a TRA90P9 Victoria Cooker from Harvey Norman, when it arrived I found the front handed was loose and had chipped baked enamel during transport and the rear flue was badly bent. Harvey Norman & SMEG were excellent had replaced the cooker within 2 days.
However, the new cooker arrived without a rotisserie and the rear flue arrangement is designed differently ‘with the flue vent holes blocked’ by a fabricated sheet of gal metal, this does not make sense and the installation instructions do not explain.
Thank you David
Thank you Smeg for reviving my faith in an Oven. Stupidly purchased what I thought was going to be my dream oven. Made In UK, thought it would be the Rolls Royce , ended up being a Leyland P76.
Smeg is overwhelming superior. Superior build and finish inside and out. Looks sensational Best lamb roast in years.
Highly recommend this oven.
i am very happy with the way the food is cooked. It is easy to clean.it adds to the beauty of my kitchen. It cooks evenly. It was installed in our new house by the builder. I am Very happy with making the right choice. I will highly recommend it. 10/10.
Always a big fan of SMEG brand, and I started to use this product since January, 2017. It was a very easy use and high quality product. I am not good at cooking, but with the help of smeg cooker, things are not that hard. It is easy to control
Kitchen changer for sure
Very quick heating time
Enjoy the light turning on as soon as you open the oven
Enjoy the 90cm size which is a life changer really
Very easy to clean as it is not steel
The only downside is I actually don’t want to cook for fear of dirtying it!
Looks amazing and works wonderfully
A statement oven was on my wish list for our new home and this oven has not disappointed!! We bought it in black and it is incredible. Easy to clean both stove top and oven, cooks evenly and the gas can be low enough to simmer without needing a diffuser. I love my smeg and it hasn't skipped a beat in over a year with a family of 5 and cooking with it everyday it is fantastic. Definitely worth the money we paid!
Workhorse in disguise
Forgive me but I'm trying not to write a mini thesis on why this oven is well worth the cost and is, hands down, the best oven I have even owned (both freestanding or installed.)
I have a large family and I cook all the home meals (BLD - even lunch boxes these days require me to fire up an oven) so when my last one died on me I spent a long time shopping for an oven that first and foremost could handle being used and I mean USED, not just a meal a day type affair, but pretty much something cooking on it or in it from morning to night. Secondly I needed a large oven as my sunday roasts require a minimal 2 roasts to feed everyone (and 2ish trays of veg to roast) and not many ovens have an even cook that allow me to do this. Lastly because of being used so much I desperately wanted an oven that was easy to clean since I've never owned one that fell in that category before (to me a "easy to clean oven" was up there with finding gold at the end of a rainbow.) By an off chance of being in Good Guys for something other than an oven I was served by a young lady who lived in a large family and we started speaking about ovens, she said her dad (who was the home cook) purchased a TRA90BL9 and now can't believe he was using any other oven. I never even considered a SMEG before, mainly because I thought it was for show only for "fancy kitchens" rather than a family oven so I went over and check it out. The thing that sealed the deal was a customer shopping in the area walked up to me and said it's the best oven their family ever used and another customer overheard her, look at me and just nodded.
Super nervous at first, it required me to get an electrician out and install a new circuit/plug as the normal plugs I had in my kitchen were not the right size but that's the only hiccup I've encountered.
Like all ovens you need to get use to how a new oven cooks, these come with a special seal around the door so I find more steam builds up (dream for making breads and pastry desserts) but I find it takes a little longer then normal to cook things, this is not a bad thing, just an adjustment but seriously this is truly a work horse oven, I can't believe how I've cooked before owning one. I'm able to cook multiple roasts at a time and they evenly cook (this is a dream for roasts too, the roasts are the juiciest I have ever made and I think it's because of this special seal again, just holds in moisture) it bakes bread like a pro and the best bit is nothing seems to stick to it! If a pot bubbles over in the past I'm left having to put some elbow grease into cleaning it, unsure if it's because of the black enamel but spills just wipe off and the vapor clean oven feature is a hoot to use! One of my bienenstich's spilled it's honey and butter all over the bottom of the oven and baking onto it, again in the past this would have required me to remove all the metal racks and supports in the oven and really spend time scrubbing that thing to remove it (most likely with my metal spatula because those blackened goops are just so hard to remove), even using a chemical spray if it didn't shift, not anymore!! I followed the easy directions to use the vapor cleaner and then it just required a paper towel to wipe up.... so easy
So yes it's pretty and looks, sadly, out of place in my kitchen but:
● Easy to clean ✔
● Cooks evenly ✔
● Impressive baking/roasting results ✔
● Able to use oven and every burner without uneven gas flow ✔
● Family workhorse oven ✔
I've only had it for a few months and to me it's already paid for itself.
Works well when installed
Purchased this cooker approximately 6 months ago purely for looks and the wide oven. It works quite well and I love the wok feature which i use to boil water. As there are two burners (one within the other) it boils a pot of water really quickly. Its handy to have. My issues is that the bar going across the front is pretty useless and the drawer at the bottom doesn't even fit the oven trays that come with it. The oven cooks a little unevenly but other than that its worked well, just got to remember to turn your tray around.
Paid $5000 for it and the oven doesn't work
Put smeg in and gas hotplates work but not oven. Phoned smeg and they said it was the clock and if that doesn't work nothing else will. Serviceman replaced clock - it still doesn't work. Have to get a plumber back to disconnect copper pipe attachment so oven can be completely pulled out and back can be totally removed to see what the problem is. Phoned smeg and asked if they would pay for the plumber to return. They said no because i should have put a flexible hose at the back. Manual states that either can be used. There was enough room with the copper pipe to get to the back to replace the clock and if a service was required. It's not my fault that the brand new smeg oven doesn't work and obviously has a major fault which requires it to be completly pulled out. I'll be requesting a new oven. Very poor and disappointing service from smeg. I hope they aren't all lemons!
