What Makes the Best Mini Fridge?
Before deciding what mini fridge is right for you. It’s worth considering what you want to keep cool. Is it for soft drink, alcohol or confectionery, We recommend choosing a mini fridge with an appropriate capacity for your needs and no larger. This is particularly important if space is at a premium in your home office or bedroom.
If you wish to keep soft drinks cool, we recommend a smaller mini fridge under 16-45 Litre storage capacity. Alternatively, if you want to keep beers and wines cold, we recommend purchasing a larger model closer to 60 Litre capacities. These fridges will often come with removable wine racks to keep your drinks segregated.
It is important to note mini fridges are not always “Mini Fridge Freezers”. Therefore, they are able to keep drinks and food perfectly cool. However, they cannot freeze and store perishable food items for long periods of time. Therefore, it is important to find the products adjustable temperature range. Typically, mini fridges can sustainably maintain between 1-15 °C depending on size and model.
