If you’re looking for a real statement appliance, this 50’s retro pastel blue fridge freezer from Smeg is sure to turn some heads. It has a 294 litre capacity that can hold up to 16 bags of all your deli meats, chilled wines and frozen desserts. There’s a special drawer that’s ideal for storing your fresh fruit and vegetables too, so you can keep your plump tomatoes and sticks of celery neat and organised. The spacious freezer compartment will need manually defrosting every now and then to keep it free of icy build-ups and working at its best.
Life Plus draw
With a controlled temperature of 0 degrees, this draw will keep fruit and veg fresh and crisp for longer than a standard salad drawer.
Automatic defrost is on hand for efficient running of the fridge. The 4-star manual defrost freezer has an adjustable wire shelf with ice cube tray. A fast freeze function brings the temperature of the compartment down, so that all of your newly purchased frozen items will reach the correct temperature quickly without affecting other food items already stored.
Midnight snacking is made easier thanks to the built-in LED light that’ll illuminate your leftovers.
Installation requirements: The doors of this appliance have hinges on the left-hand side, so a gap of 175mm must be left on the hinged side to allow the doors to open.
The Smeg name is linked to its roots in the Guastallia region of Italy. Smeg stands for ‘Smalterie Metallurgiche, Emiliane, Guastallia’ (a metal enamelling factory in Guastalla, Emilia, Italy). Smeg ensures exceptional build quality by using high quality components and applying rigorous testing to every appliance. It takes two years of research and testing before Smeg releases a product onto the market, and every appliance is tested for 15 years of use.
