Read on for information about mini-fridges.
Small refrigerators have the advantage of being able to be placed in just about any location; offices, dorm rooms, family rooms in your home, individual work spaces. They are convenient, energy saving (compared to their larger counterparts), and can be found in just about any configuration you want.
Some things to consider if you're heading out to purchase a mini-fridge:
For a medium-sized unit, Summit has a 2.9 cube Mini-Fridge. It's a compact, two door model with lockable doors, a manual defrost freezer, adjustable thermostat, and a large bottle door storage. Pictured at the left.
GE offers their larger 6 cubic foot Spacemaker Mini-Fridge; it sports an ice tray and storage bin, vertical can rack, reversible doors, and manual defrost. Shown at the right. This guy would be ideal for a small office.
Marvel has a comparable model -- the 6.1 cube unit with a bunch of features. It's designed for either built-in or under-counter placement and the door may be faced to match the surrounding cabinetry. Comes with a manual defrost, top freezer, and auto interior light. Shown at the left.
If you need an all-glass door on your mini, Summit has a model for you. 5.5 cubic feet of storage, 4 shelves, auto defrost, double pane and tempered door that is reversible. No freezer on this unit so it would be ideal for a rec room.
One more, and this one is a real mini-fridge, at 1.8 cubic feet of storage. The GE Compact refrigerator has manual defrost for its mini-freezer and would likely find an ideal home in a dorm room or office cubicle.
