5 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The energy efficiency rating of this fridge is A++, and based on average energy prices we estimate that the 24 year running cost of the FAB30LR1 is £499, which is in the cheapest 20% of all 482 fridge freezers of this age and spec.

Quite Large Net Fridge Capacity

With a net fridge capacity of 231 liters, the Smeg FAB30LR1 has one of the larger net fridge capacities amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. The smallest net fridge capacity of medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB30LR1 is 130L, the largest is 340L, and the average net fridge capacity is 220L.

If this medium total net capacity fridge freezer net fridge capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Hisense RB403N4EW1 (£249.00) (233L and higher rated).

Two Vegetable Drawers

Most medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for around the same time as the FAB30LR1 have between one and two vegetable drawers, including the Smeg FAB30LR1 which has two vegetable drawers.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years is 41dB. With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the Smeg FAB30LR1 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst fridge freezers of this age.

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Reviews for Its Fridge Freezers

Fridges from Smeg have an average rating of 20%, which is in the bottom 10% of all fridge freezer manufacturers that we have assessed.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

At only 64 liters, the FAB30LR1 has a quite small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a similar spec and age to the FAB30LR1. The net freezer capacities of medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for a similar time to the FAB30LR1 range from 27L to 120L, and the average net freezer capacity is 83L.

If you would prefer a larger net freezer capacity then you might also want to look at the KG36NSW31 (£1,374.36) (66L), or the KG36NSB31 (£392.00) (66L) both from Siemens or the Bosch KGN36SQ31 (£350.00) (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the FAB30LR1 has one of the shorter storage times during power failure amongst fridges of this age. The shortest storage time during power failure of medium total net capacity fridges that came out more than two years ago is 4h and the longest is 46h.

Fridge freezers with a longer storage time during power failure that might be worth looking at include the LG GBB539SWCWS (£599.00) (16h).

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the FAB30LR1 do not have a water filter. The FAB30LR1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

It is worth considering other fridge freezers which also have a water filter including the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£675.53), or the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£529.00).
