6 Reasons Against

High Running Costs

The energy efficiency rating of this Smeg fridge is D, and the FAB5LR1 is in the most expensive 9% of all 69 fridges of this type and age that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the FAB5LR1 will cost £644 over 24 years to run.

Quite Small Fridge Net Capacity

The average fridge net capacity of fridges that were launched more than a year ago is 240L. With a fridge net capacity of only 32 liters, the FAB5LR1's fridge net capacity is one of the smallest amongst fridges of a similar age and type to the FAB5LR1.

If this Smeg refrigerator fridge net capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Dometic CombiCool RF60[plb_3988240_price] (60L), or the Candy CCDS5144W[plb_3287592_price] (166L).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser
