This Smeg fridge freezer was released in March 2015.


Freezer

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

Medium fridge net capacity fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as this fridge freezer have freezer net capacitioes of between 26L and 160L. At only 64 liters, the FAB30RF has a quite small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other fridges of this age and type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 64L net freezer capacity fridges currently available including because of their better review scores, the FAB30RR1 (£749), or the FAB30RB1 (£899) both from Smeg or the AEG SCT81900S0 (£594.99).

Fridge freezers with a larger freezer net capacity that might be worth considering include the Candy CKC (81L and higher rated), the Liebherr CUef 3311-20 (£650.77) (84L and higher rated), or the Bosch KGE36AI32 (£694.40) (88L and higher rated).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The FAB30RF has a fairly short storage time during power failure (only 15 hours) compared to most of the other medium fridge net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for a comparable time to this fridge. The shortest storage time during power failure of medium fridge net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago is 3.5h and the longest is 46h.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 15h storage time during power failure fridges currently available including because of their better review scores, the CR330AP, or the FAB30RB1 (£899) both from Smeg or the De Dietrich DRC1027J (£749).

If you want a fridge freezer with a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to consider the KGN34XL32G (£609) (16h and higher rated), or the KGN34XL30G (£725) (16h and higher rated) both from Bosch or the Liebherr CNP 4003 (£729) (17h and higher rated).

Has an Icemaker

The Smeg FAB30RF has an icemaker, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec fridges that are a similar age to this fridge freezer do not have an icemaker.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridges with an icemaker and we think because of their better review scores, the Haier CFL633CS, the Liebherr CUN3923 (£650), and the Beko CSA 31032 are also worth considering.
