“Temperature stability should also come from excellent levels of insulation in the refrigerator’s construction and features like self-closing doors which Smeg’s units have.”

The new series also features a stainless steel finish and a design to make the units attractive both back and front-of-house.

Other features include castors, soft touch controls, hot gas defrosting and a noise level of 47dB.

The cabinet’s space is designed to be completely usable with no evaporator inside, adding more volume.

It should be possible to change the complete compressor unit is just a few minutes, and the gas used is R404A.

The Series RC cabinets have a 2 year warranty backed with Smeg’s service and support.
