15 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Reviews for Its Fridge Freezers

Fridges manufactured by Smeg generally have poor ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

The average net freezer capacity of fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the FAB30RB1 is 83L. With a net freezer capacity of only 64 liters, the FAB30RB1 has one of the smaller net freezer capacities amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age.

If this Smeg fridge net freezer capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to consider the KG36NSB31[pl_2372650_price] (66L), or the KG36NST31[pl_2358334_price] (66L) both from Siemens or the Bosch KGN36SQ31[plb_2063268_price] (66L).

With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the Smeg FAB30RB1 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the FAB30RB1. Across all the fridges that were launched around the same time as the FAB30RB1 the storage times during power failure range from 4h to 46h.

If this medium total net capacity fridge freezer storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might want to consider the Siemens KG36NXL32[plb_2305246_price] (16h), the Bosch KGN36VW31[plb_1947358_price] (16h), or the LG GBB539SWCWS[plb_2413031_price] (16h).
