3 Reasons For

Short

When compared to other fridges of a comparable age and spec to the FAB30LAZ1 that we have checked, the Smeg FAB30LAZ1's height of only 1,680 millimeter is one of the shortest. Across all the fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB30LAZ1 the heights range from 770mm to 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,800mm.

Chart Edit

Two Vegetable Drawers

The FAB30LAZ1 is a two vegetable drawer fridge. Most of the other fridges that have been around for more than two years have between one and two vegetable drawers.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 38 decibels, the FAB30LAZ1 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to the FAB30LAZ1. Across all the fridges of this type and age the noise levels range from 34dB to 48dB.

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Freezer Reviews

On average Smeg fridges are rated 20%, which is in the bottom 10% of all fridge freezer brands that we have assessed.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

The FAB30LAZ1 has one of the smaller net freezer capacities (only 64 liters) amongst similar spec fridge freezers of this age. The average net freezer capacity of similar spec fridges that were launched more than two years ago is 83L.

Fridge freezers with a larger net freezer capacity that might be worth considering include the KG36NSW31[pl_2601926_price] (66L), or the KG36NSB31[pl_2372650_price] (66L) both from Siemens or the Bosch KGN36SQ31[plb_2063268_price] (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

Across all the fridge freezers of this age and type the storage times during power failure range from 4h to 46h. The FAB30LAZ1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure (only 15 hours) compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the FAB30LAZ1.

If this Smeg fridge storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might also want to look at the LG GBB539SWCWS[plb_2413031_price] (16h).

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The FAB30LAZ1 does not have an air filter, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable type and age to the FAB30LAZ1 also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other fridges of a similar age and type to the FAB30LAZ1, the FAB30LAZ1 does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The FAB30LAZ1 does not have a water filter. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB30LAZ1 also do not have a water filter.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridges with a water filter and we think the Siemens KG36WXL30S[plb_2373670_price], or the Bosch KGW36XL30S[plb_2362515_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

Like most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years, the FAB30LAZ1 does not have a humidifier function.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridges with a humidifier function and we think the Siemens KG36VUL31[plb_2360295_price] is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the Smeg FAB30LAZ1

Average Running Costs

This fridge is rated A++ for energy efficiency, and the FAB30LAZ1 has an average running cost of £499 over 24 years based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 482 medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago.

Average Net Fridge Capacity

At 229 liters, the FAB30LAZ1 has a relatively average net fridge capacity compared to most of the other fridges of this age and type.

We compared all the other 229L net fridge capacity fridge freezers to this fridge and we think the Gorenje RF60309[plb_401701_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a larger net fridge capacity then you might also want to consider the Haier CFE633CWE[plb_1985432_price] (230L).
