SMEG (which stands for Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastall − obviously) is an Italian manufacturer who have been making household appliances since 1948. And where as they make a number of quality products, they’re best known for their retro style fridges available in a range of flashy colors, including a special Union Jack edition.

Some people might choose a SMEG because of its clean lines and minimalist style, but they’re quite practical too. Smegs get the job done with plenty of built-in storage, a freezer compartment, and it saves on energy compared to a full-size fridge. And although there is a mini on the market, the standard SMEG stands at just 57.5 inches tall and about 24 inches wide.

Check your local market for a SMEG retailer, the average price being around $1,700. And get ready to tell you friends you own a genuine Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastall!
