3 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

This fridge has an efficiency rating of A++, and the average running cost of the FAB30RO1 is £499 over 24 years based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 19% of all 482 fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age.

Short

The average height of fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to the FAB30RO1 is 1,800mm. When compared to other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a similar time to the FAB30RO1 that we have checked, the height of the FAB30RO1 of only 1,688 millimeter is one of the shortest.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across all the similar spec fridges that have been around for more than two years the noise levels range from 34dB to 48dB. At only 38 decibels, the FAB30RO1 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridges of this spec and age.

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Fridge Freezers Only Have Poor Reviews

Fridges produced by Smeg are some of the less good fridges according to average user and expert reviews.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

With a net freezer capacity of only 64 liters, the FAB30RO1 has a fairly small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were launched around the same time as the FAB30RO1. The average net freezer capacity of fridge freezers of this type and age is 83L, and the net freezer capacities range from 27L to 120L.

If this fridge freezer net freezer capacity is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the KG36NSB31 (£392.00) (66L), or the KG36NST31 (£1,258.62) (66L) both from Siemens or the Bosch KGN36SQ31 (£350.00) (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The storage times during power failure of fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to the FAB30RO1 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 Smeg FAB30RO1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the FAB30RO1.

Fridges with a longer storage time during power failure that might be worth looking at include the Siemens KG36NXL32 (£608.75) (16h), the Bosch KGN36VW31 (£529.72) (16h), or the LG GBB539SWCWS (£599.00) (16h).

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for more than two years do not have an air filter. The Smeg FAB30RO1 is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other fridges of this type and age, the Smeg FAB30RO1 does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the FAB30RO1 do not have a water filter. The Smeg FAB30RO1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

It is worth also looking at alternative fridges which also have a water filter including the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£675.53), or the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£529.00).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The Smeg FAB30RO1 does not have a water dispenser, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable type and age to the FAB30RO1 also do not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Most fridges of this type and age do not have an icemaker. The FAB30RO1 is no exception to this as it too does not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The FAB30RO1 does not feature ice crushing. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for more than two years also do not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The Smeg FAB30RO1 does not have an AntiBacteria function. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the FAB30RO1 also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The FAB30RO1 does not have a humidifier function, although keep in mind that most of the other fridges that have been on the market for more than two years also do not have a humidifier function.

Alternative fridges which also have a humidifier function that you might want to consider include the Siemens KG36VUL31 (£586.16).

Very Small Freezer Capacity

Across all the medium total net capacity fridges that were launched more than two years ago the freezer capacities range from 2kg/24h to 17kg/24h, and the average freezer capacity is 8.6kg/24h. At only 3 kilograms per 24 hours, the Smeg FAB30RO1 has a fairly small freezer capacity compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Gross Capacity

At only 295 liters, the Smeg FAB30RO1 has a fairly small total gross capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type. Across all the comparable spec fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB30RO1 the total gross capacity range from 280L to 410L, and the average total gross capacity is 330L.

Chart Edit

Only One Vegetable Drawer
