2 Reasons For

Very Narrow

With a width of only 595 millimeters, the Smeg FC381MNE is fairly narrow compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and spec. The narrowest fridge that has been available for more than a year is 590mm wide and the widest is 1,900mm.

Fridge freezers with a wider width that might also be worth looking at include the Whirlpool WBE 3411[plb_1817527_price] (595mm), or the Samsung RB37J5249[plb_2864361_price] (595mm).

Shallow

Across all the similar spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for more than a year the depths range from 570mm to 870mm. At only 636 millimeters, the FC381MNE is quite shallow compared to most of the other large total net capacity fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the FC381MNE.

If you are not concerned about having a deeper depth then you might want to consider the NRK 6203 TX[pl_2913701_price] (640mm), or the NRK 6202 MX[pl_2913697_price] (640mm) both from Gorenje or the Whirlpool WBE 3411[plb_1817527_price] (640mm).
