For those of you that aren’t familiar with Smeg, it’s the Italian kitchen appliance company that I praise and not the all purpose swear word originated from Red Dwarf. Smeg has been in the kitchen appliance business for many moons but it really wasn’t until the 1990’s when they created their retro line of appliances, particularly their refrigerators, that they hit the jack pot. Currently they are one of the leading kitchen appliance manufactures in the world. I have had my eyes on these beauties for years now, and sadly we keep renting and I have to put off my dream of owning a bright-happy-retro-oh-so-cool Smeg refrigerator! In case you’re wondering…they retail at around $2000.
