Getting a high-performance beer fridge can mean the difference between a fun night with the boys and an average night out. An ideal beer refrigerator should be compact and should work well in cooling down cans in an instant. Find the perfect mini beer fridge in today’s beer mini fridge review of Amazon’s five best beer fridge models.
If you love your canned soda, you will love the massive capacity of the NewAir 126 Can Freestanding Beverage Fridge. This seamless, stainless steel construction is limited edition and stands a little over eighteen inches, with thirty-two inches. This 110-volt mini fridge has a temperature range of 37°F-64° (2.7°C-17.). The fridge is the ideal choice for indoor can cooling but is also designed for outdoor activities like barbecues and parties. The chrome racks can also be repositioned so you can fit bottles and other items inside.
User reviews showed that if you stack a moderate amount of cans inside, the fridge functions as described. One user stacked almost a hundred cans easily inside, and it functioned just fine. Some users complain of the slight noise that it produces (a gurgling sound), but this should be expected of any refrigerator because that is the compressor’s sound.
The hOmeLabs mini-fridge stands at 33.3” with a width of 18.9”. This is a modern beverage cooler with a sleek glass door, backed by a durable stainless steel body. From the outside, you can easily view all the fridge contents, and the internal storage design is not only compact but affords you the most space to add all the cans that you want – up to a maximum of 120 cans at a time. The chrome shelves are also removable and adjustable, so you can mix and match other stuff that you might want to store in the mini-fridge. It sits well beside most tables and counters and is a perfect addition to any kitchen.
The current review of the hOmeLabs fridge shows that the current model performs well. A fully-loaded fridge can cool down all the cans at an average of 40°F (4.44°C), the average acceptable refrigeration temperature. This means you can safely put other stuff in the fridge like leftover salsa, and you won’t have to worry about food spoiling for a few days. Another user said that the interior needs work, as his unit struggled to keep the contents at a consistent temperature. Others say that the chrome racks are durable, and the overall design is worth the price.
If you want a mini-fridge with a freezer, this would be your big chance to grab one. RCA’s model is a two-door configuration that comfortably fits two sections commonly seen in fuller-sized fridges. This fridge remains a huge space-saver, and it has reversible doors as well, for added convenience. It has a can dispenser inside and a door basket for two-liter bottles so you won’t have to squeeze the bottles inside anymore.
Users report that they received their units in excellent condition, and they are mostly happy with this RCA fridge’s performance. The main benefit points are: it’s very compact, it cools down quickly, and it looks very sleek, adding easily to the modern aesthetics of the room or kitchen. The fridge has its own crisper section and a walled-off freezer section for better insulation as well. One user suggested that the fridge should be allowed to settle for 24 hours before use, so the coolant is in its proper place in the compressor.
The Danby mini-fridge is the first model in this review that features a nifty automatic defrost function that makes it easier for users to maintain their mini-fridge after weeks of use. This model has adjustable wire shelves (instead of chrome ones) and a bottle storage space for better organization. The solid stainless steel construction is scratch-proof, which means you can quickly move the mini-fridge to different locations without worrying about getting it scratched or dented easily.
Users who purchased this mini-fridge are mostly happy with its performance, save for some who say that the warranty is problematic if you purchase the unit from a warehouse deal. Some reports that the fridge somehow burned out after a short time, but these are anecdotal. The majority of reviews still point to an excellent reliable performance from a well-known brand.
This is the second NewAir model on our review, and they are that good that we are going to include two models from the same brand. What differentiates this NewAir brand is the upgraded compressor that can reduce the inner temperature by 37°F, 3°F lower than the average capacity of other mini-fridges. This fridge is naturally spacious and can be used for more than just storing cans and bottles. Small quantities of food will do just fine inside, especially if you will consume them soon after.
Users who reviewed these models have some comments: it cannot be used on carpeted flooring (you need to add an extra solid layer underneath), and it did not come with LED lights for the inside, it is a very budget-friendly mini fridge that is perfect for someone who needs a new fridge replacement and fast, and also, it has all of the features that you could ask for from the larger and more expensive brands. All in all, we believe that this particular model delivers, and in terms of consistency, it does deliver as long as it is used within the prescribed operation parameters.
