Smeg fridge freezer reviews
In the Which? lab we test fridge freezers on a wide range of criteria, to see which offer the best cooling power for your money. The things we test for include fridge power (how quickly the fridge cools to the correct temperature), freezer power (the amount of food it can freeze to -18°C in 24 hours), uniform fridge temperature and fridge and freezer temperature stability.
We also test for ease of defrosting and noise. Find out how the Smeg FPD34 fridge freezer scores on each of these criteria by visiting our fridge freezer test results.
When choosing a fridge freezer, an important factor to consider is how much it will cost you to run. Fridge freezers typically account for 20% of electricity consumed by domestic appliances, so finding one that’s cheap to run could save you money.
We’ve found energy labels don’t always tell the full story when it comes to energy efficiency, so we use our lab results to calculate annual running costs for each fridge freezer. These can vary from £13 to £92 a year – so make sure you check the individual specifications of each model in our fridge freezer reviews to find one that is cheap to run.
