In July 2017, two new Smeg freezers were released making it the biggest month that year for new Smeg freezer releases. The biggest month in 2016 for new Smeg freezer releases was October, with four new Smeg freezers released that month.

    .

    How Fast Do Smeg Freezer Prices Drop After Release?
