"Only minor criticism is the lack of UK specific plug. Adaptor supplied but adds to depth needed behind fridge.

All round excellent fridge. "

Questionable build quality..

Pros: Spacious , Quiet, Ease to use, Value for money

Cons: Smeg Customer Service , Build quality

"Overall, I am VERY happy with our purchase.

However, we have had this almost two weeks now, and I’m STILL waiting for Smeg to sort out our issues.

It would seem that one of the brackets on the door has been fitted incorrectly, making the doors an eye sore because they don’t line up properly.

Also something I find frustrating - only because of having previous fridges that do it - the doors don’t automatically shut once you push them to close.

I open the door - take out milk to make a cuppa - and before I’ve even finished pouring the milk, the open door alarm is going off already! Hoping to change the settings on this somehow, but might also be from the bracket issue we are having?

The fridge itself - is brilliant. Spacious, keeps food really fresh for long. Looks great (hopefully better once the doors are sorted!) lots of storage.

And the freezer! Excellent! Lots of room, deep drawers. Wonderful size. Hidden ice cube compartment which is handy too!

Just bare in mind - Smeg’s customer service seem to be quite difficult to get hold of. No obvious phone number for customer services, in the end several tweets and a call to AO got me through to them. "

Really nice and simple

Pros: Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good

Cons: Expensive

"Drawers are excellent as they really let you get at the freezer stuff easily. Slots to hold a couple of ice trays out of the way of everything else are great. Only slight annoyance is that the vegetable drawers in the fridge don't open as far as you would expect. But that is really a tiny thing. Overall is is a really nice piece of equipment."

Screws missing

Pros: Ease to use, Looks good

Cons: Noisy, Poor quality

"Couple of screws missing from back plate covering motor. Spoke with AO and they sorted it asap. New screws arrived from manufacturer within a few days. Apart from this very pleased with the product having previously had similar in last residence. Blue light technology keeps fresh food for longer. Will get used to the noise soon enough, no fridge/freezer is that quiet anyway. SMEG need to tighten up QA/QC on these expensive products. "
