4 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

This fridge has an efficiency rating of A++. The average running cost of the FAB30RAZ1 is £499 over 24 years based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 18% of all 482 fridges of a comparable spec and age.

Short

The heights of medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for more than two years range from 770mm to 2,100mm. With a height of only 1,680 millimeter, the Smeg FAB30RAZ1 is very short compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were launched around the same time as the FAB30RAZ1.

Chart Edit

Two Vegetable Drawers

Most fridges of a similar spec and age to the FAB30RAZ1 have between one and two vegetable drawers, including the Smeg FAB30RAZ1 which has two vegetable drawers.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of comparable spec fridges that have been around for a similar time to the FAB30RAZ1 range from 34dB to 48dB, and the average noise level is 41dB. With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the Smeg FAB30RAZ1 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

Smeg is one of the lower rated fridge freezer brands according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all fridge freezers.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

At only 64 liters, the Smeg FAB30RAZ1 has a quite small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this spec and age. Medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for a similar time to the FAB30RAZ1 have net freezer capacities of between 27L and 120L, and the average net freezer capacity is 83L.

If this fridge net freezer capacity is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the KG36NSW31 (£1,374.36) (66L), or the KG36NSB31 (£975.72) (66L) both from Siemens or the Bosch KGN36SQ31 (£1,108.14) (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The storage times during power failure of comparable spec fridges that have been on the market for a similar time to the FAB30RAZ1 range from 4h to 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h. With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the FAB30RAZ1 has one of the shorter storage times during power failure amongst fridge freezers of this age.

If you would prefer a longer storage time during power failure then you might also want to look at the LG GBB539SWCWS (£599.00) (16h).

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other fridges of a similar age and type to the FAB30RAZ1, the FAB30RAZ1 does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The Smeg FAB30RAZ1 does not have a super cool function, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable type and age to the FAB30RAZ1 also do not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most comparable spec fridge freezers that are a similar age to the FAB30RAZ1 do not have a water filter. The Smeg FAB30RAZ1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a water filter to this fridge and we think the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£675.53), or the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£764.49) is also worth considering.

The FAB30RAZ1 does not have an AntiBacteria function. Most of the other fridges of a comparable age and type to the FAB30RAZ1 also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were launched around the same time as the FAB30RAZ1, the FAB30RAZ1 does not have a humidifier function.

We think you might also be interested in other fridge freezers which also have a humidifier function including the Siemens KG36VUL31 (£586.16).
