Entertaining ideas

This kitchen is designed to accommodate the chef and his or her guests, so Smeg appliances were chosen for looks as well as function

Expansive living areas where kitchensare open to view prominently display cooking appliances. This increased visibility means factors such as sculptural appeal and easy-to-clean surfaces become important considerations when choosing appliances.

When managing director of David Reid Homes in Canterbury, Kendall Langston, built this show home, he installed a Smeg cooktop on the benchtop, with a Smeg stainless steel ventilation rangehood.

"I wanted to emphasise the benefits of open-plan living so I had the cooktop face the dining and living area. The clean lines of Smeg appliances match the sleek edges of the joinery and enhance the overall look of the kitchen," he says.

The Smeg P106 stainless steel gas hob has automatic electronic ignition. It is also set up for natural gas, with LPG jets supplied. The single piece hob surface is constructed from robust stainless steel. Accessories include two wok stands.

Above the cooktop, the sculptural appeal of the Smeg stainless steel island rangehood provides a sleek focal point in the room.

It has a four-speed fan with re-circulating options and electronic controls. The adjustable chimney height ensures it can fit into most kitchen interiors.
