With the automatic pre-set programmes, the Zanussi ZBG26542XA takes the guesswork out of your cooking, giving you perfectly cooked food every time. There are different pre-sets for fish, chicken, vegetables, pasta and so on – all you have to do is select one, enter the weight and it’ll calculate the cooking time for you.
Unique to this model is a dedicated pizza setting which uses the 1000W grill element to make sure the cheese and toppings cook through. There’s a 32cm turntable inside this model, so it’ll easily hold most off-the-shelf pizzas.
There’s also a very useful defrost setting which uses short burst of energy to thaw out your food. The short bursts prevent that half-cooked finished you sometimes get, and your frozen food will be ready to cook up to 5 times faster than leaving it on the worktops. It’s far more hygienic this way too.
The ZBG26542XA is made to be built in to your kitchen units, much like an eye-level oven. Not only does it save you space on your worktops, but it’ll look great if you’ve got other built in appliances as well. It’s easy to keep the stainless steel fascia clean, as it comes with a fingerprint resistant coating. To get rid of any grubby, a quick wipe with a soft cloth is all you need.
