Call this oven Fred Durst, because it's baking limp biscuitsThe bright red SMEG C30GGRU range looks appealing, but its oven? Not so much.
[MUSIC] I'm not gonna lie, when I first saw the Smeg C30GGRU, I was in love. I mean how often do you see a fire engine red oven come through the test kitchen? Well I can tell you, not very often. In a land of stainless steel appliances, this [UNKNOWN] unit stood out. Unfortunately, the performance didn't come close to its appearance. Now this gas over is very, very basic, and not in a good way. All of the oven's functions are controlled with knobs, so it makes it a little tricky to make sure you have an Accurate temperature especially for baking. Plus the oven doesn't even let you know when your preheat time has been reached. So it can be a little tricky making sure the oven is hot enough. And even when I did figure out a good preheat time the baking results were abysmal. My biscuits were super pale and then when I baked two racks of biscuits one was A whole lot darker than the other. Now the Smeg isn't all bad news. The stovetop can actually boil water really really quickly. But for thirty two hundred dollars, this pretty little red oven just isn't worth it.
