Mini fridge buying guide
Do you need a freezer
Some mini fridges come with a freezer compartment. However, they are more expensive, uses more energy and also lessens the amount of space for normal refrigeration. So if you don’t need a freezer compartment, we recommend that you do without it. If you need the freezing capabilities, go for a mini fridge with a proper freezer compartment.
Size and capacity
When buying a mini fridge, you have to make sure it fits into the space you have. Specifications of each fridge can be easily found online. The next step is to measure the amount of space you have for the fridge and find one that matches it.
Another factor to consider is how much space you need inside the fridge. If you are only storing some drinks and light snacks, a smaller fridge will do. If you are using it as a substitute for a full-sized fridge, a larger mini fridge might be a better fit.
How noisy is it
A quiet mini fridge would be the best choice, especially if it is going to be near your rest or sleeping area. Usually, the more expensive models will have better noise insulation. If your mini fridge is going to be put at an outdoor area, a noisy one may not matter that much.
Is it energy efficient
Energy efficiency for fridges is determined by the number of ticks they have – with 4 being the maximum. Better energy efficiency means lower electrical bills. However, you’ll also need to pay a slight premium for an eco-friendly fridge because some of their materials are more expensive.
