This Smeg FAB28QAZ fridge with its retro image is designed to be in prime position freestanding in your kitchen. Perfect for a larger household, it comes with 3 adjustable glass shelves and a fruit and vegetable container, which helps keep your fruit, veg and salads fresher and crisper for longer. There is also a dairy compartment so you can keep your butter, milk and cream separate and a chrome wine rack for storing bottles of your favourite tipple. All this makes up 248 litres of fridge storage, in addition to this it has a frozen food compartment with and ice cube tray, ideal for chilling your drinks on hot summer days.
The FAB28QAZ has an automatic defrost function on the fridge section, so you don’t have to worry about ice build up on the back of the unit; although you will have to manually defrost the ice compartment from time to time, but as its only 26 litres this is very quick and easy to do. This refrigerator has a required room temperature of 16°C t0 38°C, which means it is important you don’t store it in a room such as a garage or outbuilding that could, in winter get colder than 16°, or too close to radiators or cooking appliances where it could get warmer than 38°C. This is because too cold or too hot temperatures can cause the compressor to work overtime at keeping the internal temperature of the appliance constant and break, which is costly to replace and can affect the warranty cover on the product. It is also essential when installing this model in your kitchen that you leave a 17.5cm gap on the right hand side, as Smeg fridges have stylish chunky doors and you need to makes sure you leave enough space so it can open wide enough for you to access all your food easily inside.
Please note: This fridge has a right hand hinge, and the door cannot be reversed. A left hand hinge version is also available - take a look at the FAB28YAZ .
