Smeg is Italy's largest manufacturer of domestic kitchen appliances.

Smeg was founded by Vittorio Bertazzoni in 1948 as Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastalla (metal enamelling factory in the village of Guastalla, Reggio Emilia). The company is still in the hands of the Bertazzoni family, currently under the direct control of Roberto Bertazzoni. Its headquarters remain a short distance from Guastalla.

They are well known for their 1950s-style "retro" refrigerators (the FAB** range) that have curved corners and come in a variety of non-traditional colors, for example pastel blue, lime green and pink.

More recently they have expanded their product range to include induction hobs, integrated washing machines and washer dryers. In addition, they scored a hit with sales on the "Opera" range of freestanding range cookers, such as the A1 which has almost become a style icon, much like the famed FAB28 fridge and its derivatives. These products, along with style-led design in other areas, has led to Smeg being regarded as leading the industry in design and aesthetics.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by I like it. I've had this refrigerator for about three months and I'm quite happy with it. It seems well made and is very quiet. As anyone looking at a refrigerator like this has already noticed, it's expensive. You could get a compact white box ‘fridge from Sears for less than half the price, and it would come with an automatic defrost freezer. But people considering this appliance aren’t expecting cavernous storage space. I haven't noticed any frost buildup in the freezer yet, and the lack of auto-defrost means it uses much less electricity. My 1920s bungalow has a small kitchen, and this refrigerator is the perfect size. While it isn't 1920s style, it's retro enough that it blends in well. The cream color helps. (The delivery man said, “Is this new?”) Minuses include the compromises you’d expect from a small appliance, including the tiny freezer. But it holds a couple of ice cube trays plus four or five compact frozen dinner boxes, and I've got a separate freezer in the basement. So, overall—two thumbs up! 5/27/08
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why go with a boring fridge? Let's start with the biggest question people ask when they see my SMEG: 10 square feet easily fits enough food for our family of four. We don't freeze much (but could always pop a freezer in the basement), and typically shop for fresh food once or twice each week. The SMEG holds everything just fine. I recently renovated our kitchen, and shopped just about every fridge out there. Size was not really a factor--I just wanted something that looked good. Now I don't think I'll ever go back to one of those massive fridges. My only disappointment is with the SMEG's door and handle. Both are made of plastic. While they have a beautiful painted finish, I was expecting metal based on the photos. 4/16/08
Rated 2 out of 5 by Don't buy it! 1st off, be aware this thing is NOT frost free. 2nd, even if you fill the refrig, the temp, set at the highest, is still in the Spoil Zone. Lastly, you can't open the frige door, you drag it all over the kitchen before it opens. I am so sorry I bought this, and now I have to keep it, they won't take it as a return, nor exchange it for a refund. The cheap comes out expensive! I should have bought an Elmira.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Small, Colorful and Perfect My kitchen has a retro theme and this fridge fits in perfectly and holds as much stuff as I had in a bigger unit. I did find bigger products in red but they were twice the price. So although this fridge was expensive for it's size it was half of what the bigger ones were. All in all it is perfect. 3/13/08
