Freezer

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

The smallest freezer net capacity of fridge freezers that were released around the same time as this fridge is 26L, the largest is 160L, and the average freezer net capacity is 81L. The Smeg FAB28LCS1 has a very small freezer net capacity (only 26 liters) compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to this fridge.

If you would prefer a fridge freezer with a larger freezer net capacity then you might want to look at the Neff KI2723F30G (£869) (35L), or the Rex FI291-2T (50L).
