3 Reasons For

Shallow

At only 560 millimeters, the FAB5RR1 is quite shallow compared to most of the other Freestanding refrigerators that have been on the market for more than a year. The depths of Freestanding refrigerators that have been on the market for a similar time to the FAB5RR1 range from 450mm to 850mm, and the average depth is 620mm.

Other refrigerators with a deeper depth that you might want to look at include the Bosch KIR21AF40[plb_3060668_price] (545mm and cheaper).

Very Short

At only 715 millimeters, the FAB5RR1 is fairly short compared to most of the other fridges of this type and age. The heights of refrigerators that are a similar age to the FAB5RR1 range from 520mm to 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,400mm.

Fridges with a taller height that might also be worth considering include the Bosch KIR21AF40[plb_3060668_price] (874mm) which is also cheaper.

Narrow

When compared to other similar spec refrigerators that are a comparable age to the FAB5RR1 that we have assessed, the FAB5RR1's width of only 404 millimeters is one of the narrowest. The widths of fridges that are a similar age to the FAB5RR1 range from 400mm to 820mm, and the average width is 570mm.

Fridges with a wider width that might be worth considering include the Bosch KIR21AF40[plb_3060668_price] (558mm) which is also cheaper.

7 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are High

The efficiency rating of this Freestanding refrigerator is D. The FAB5RR1 is one of the more expensive to run refrigerators of a similar spec and age that we have looked at for 24 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the FAB5RR1 is £644.

Very Small Net Capacity

At only 32 liters, the Smeg FAB5RR1 has a fairly small net capacity compared to most of the other refrigerators that have been on the market for more than a year. Across all the refrigerators of this spec and age the net capacities range from 32L to 530L, and the average net capacity is 250L.

If this Smeg refrigerator net capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Candy CCDS5144W[plb_3287592_price] (166L and cheaper), the Exquisit KS325-4[plb_3106883_price] (240L and cheaper), or the Bosch KSV33VW30G[plb_3287571_price] (324L and cheaper).

Very Small Gross Capacity

With a gross capacity of only 42 liters, the FAB5RR1 has one of the smaller gross capacities amongst refrigerators of this age. Across all the similar spec fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB5RR1 the gross capacities range from 42L to 700L.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Like most of the other refrigerators that came out around the same time as the FAB5RR1, the FAB5RR1 does not have a water dispenser.

We compared all the other refrigerators which also have a water dispenser to this refrigerator and we think the Samsung RR35H6610BC[plb_2882003_price] is also worth considering.

Only Two Shelves/basketss

The Smeg FAB5RR1 is a two shelves/baskets fridge. Most of the other similar spec refrigerators that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB5RR1 have between two and seven shelves/basketss.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Minimum Operating Temperature

Across all the Freestanding refrigerators that were released more than a year ago the minimum operating temperatures range from 10°C to 16°C, and the average minimum operating temperature is 13°C. The Smeg FAB5RR1 has a fairly big minimum operating temperature (16 degrees celcius) compared to most of the other Freestanding refrigerators that are a similar age to the FAB5RR1.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

The price range of fridges of a similar age and type is from £120 to £1,400. We think that this fridge looks expensive compared to other fridges of a similar age and type.
