Another option if you are a retro-styled fridge freezer, but don’t fancy paying the Smeg price – the Electra E7316 and E7681.
Both models are very similar in features, but in design, the E7316 differs by offering a choice of colours, including cream, silver and black and the duck egg blue pictured above. The E7681 is just offered in cream. Both have an A* energy rating, glass shelving, salad crispers, a chrome wine rack and a considerable capacity in both fridge and freezer. The E7316 also adds an anti-bacterial lining, while the E7681 throws in a meat box.
And they’re well-priced too, with both retailing at £499.
