3 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

This medium total net capacity fridge freezer is rated A++ for energy efficiency, and the FAB30RAZ1 is in the cheapest 20% of all 487 fridges of this age and type that we have assessed for 24 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the FAB30RAZ1 is £499.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across all the medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a similar time to the FAB30RAZ1 the noise levels range from 34dB to 48dB, and the average noise level is 41dB. At only 38 decibels, the FAB30RAZ1 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB30RAZ1.

We compared this fridge to all the other 38dB noise level fridge freezers and we think because of it's better review score, the Gorenje RF60309 is also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Bosch KGE36AW40 (£520.00) (38dB).

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

At only 64 liters, the FAB30RAZ1 has a fairly small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB30RAZ1. Across all the medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for around the same time as the FAB30RAZ1 the freezer net capacitys range from 27L to 120L.
