A fridge for your makeup, is that even a thing? Well yes! If you have been following the makeup artists and celebrities on Instagram or Twitter you might have seen their stories where they take out their cosmetics from small refrigerators at the shooting sets. Right now, Every celebrity/makeup artist is using a fridge to store their expensive makeup. But why? Well, that’s what I’m answering next!

  • Fits your budget.
  • Has compartments to store different kinds of make-ups.

Why Trust Me?

If you know me, you already know about my experience with refrigerators. Besides, I’ve written around 22 refrigerator articles on EvaChill and till date, I’ve also have sold around 170 refrigerators till date from this website and people who’ve bought them are very satisfied.

We all know that a refrigerator can reduce the bacteria growth in food items but we didn’t know that it can be helpful for makeup items too. A safely stored makeup will ensure that you have no puffiness or reactions on your skin and longer shelf life. Apart from that, it adds to the anti-inflammatory property of the make-up.

I didn’t know about this makeup fridge trend too! But my wife started sharing stories about celebrities owning them and suggested me to write about it and help other women find quality products and the next thing I did was went through all the portable fridges I had, visited the stores, checked the reviews of these makeup fridges and after all of it, I chose 10 models

Things To Consider When Buying a Make Fridge or Cosmetics Refrigerator

  • Make a list of things that you want to store in it. This will give you clarity about how many things you want to store and what capacity you need for it.
  • The next question to be answered is where you will keep the fridge. No matter how compact a mini-fridge is it will take space. Decide a location, measure the length, height and breadth of the area and then look for a mini-fridge.
  • Then comes the looks. How does your room décor look like? The model of the fridge will depend on that. So if you want a pop-culture looking fridge get the one that looks like, you want a retro-looking fridge then there are ones listed there too.
  • If you are a traveler then you will need a carport for the make-up fridge.
  • Look for utility too. If you need some food and beverages to be stored for the night then you need a versatile fridge.
  • Some fridges come with the technology of warming and cooling. If you need a fridge that can be converted into a food warmer then check for that functionality too.
  • Before ordering the fridge online go through the reviews on Amazon, make sure that the fridge you are deciding on doesn’t heat up much. You don’t want your makeup melt overnight. It won’t be a happy week after that.
  • Look for a fridge that consumes less electricity and is budget-friendly.

As a trucker you spend a huge time in your truck and like I’ve heard from most of the truckers the food at the truck stops doesn’t just taste bad, but regularly eating it or fast food is unhealthy for your body too! That’s why you need a mini truck fridge that is lightweight and highly portable.

Before writing this post, I met 132 truckers, visited the truck stops (for food experience), and also traveled with a trucker for 2 days and 1 night to experience the lifestyle. After spending time in truck, I found out things that are ACTUALLY important in truck fridge. That’s why believe me, none of the small portable coolers I’ve listed will disappoint you!

Before I begin with the list of fridges, I’d like to enlighten you with the most popular food items that truckers store in their refrigerators. They are whole fruits, frozen food items, veggies, protein bars, meat, cheese, fish, milk, etc. You can store any food you like, provided it can survive in the fridge for the amount of time you’ve mentioned.

Recommended: 10 Best 12V Refrigerators for High Portability

Things I Considered Before Choosing The Below Refrigerators

  1. Power consumption: It is one of the essential things to look for while buying a mini-fridge for a truck. If the fridge consumes more power, then the truck’s battery will get drained out sooner, so it is vital to choose an energy-efficient mini-fridge for trucks.
  2. Cooling system: most of the mini-refrigerators can cool only up to 36F, while others can cool down up to -0.4F. So, you need to know the cooling system and the minimum and maximum temperatures that the mini-fridge can sustain so that your food in the fridge remains chilled and fresh.
  3. Budget: Budget is one of the essential things that one should consider while buying a mini-fridge. Nobody would like to have a refrigerator, which is way beyond their limits. So before buying, you should fix a budget and then accordingly choose the perfect mini-fridge for yourself.
  4. Temperature control: There are many mini-fridges that can adjust the temperature of the fridge through the digital or mechanical thermostat that is available in it. You should look for a mini-fridge with an adjustable thermostat as it helps you in controlling the temperature of the interior of the fridge according to your requirements.

Haier is one of the most innovative brands when it comes to the US appliance market. Due to their significance towards innovation has lead to the brand offering some of the most customer-friendly products. As Haier’s tagline says “Room to invent”, their mini fridges are known to fit your needs and requirements accordingly.

A mini fridge is what you need if you are a bachelor or just need a fridge for your personal office cabin, dorm, bedroom, etc. It acts in the same way as any regular fridge would except the sizing, capacity, energy consumption, and price, etc.

Every household or workspace requires a refrigerator to make the process of preserving your food easier. Though a big fridge with a huge capacity and fancy side by side doors may seem like the go-to option. But at times you might just want a small one which could save space, electricity bills, and money.

These small-sized fridges come with a lot of advantages for people who move around a lot. They need to be light for easy transportation and yet, have a good storage capacity to hold at the least a couple of basic foods and beverages that need to be kept cold or frozen. These do not require stabilizers and are much more energy-efficient.

Haier is one of the leading brands in the compact refrigerators market. But not every mini fridge from Haier is equal in terms of performance, quality, or needs. That’s the reason why I’ve made this list that includes the 10 best-rated models [And to justify why they made it to this list, I’ve included in-depth review about them.]

As a gamer, you must be spending huge time playing or streaming your favorite game in a gaming room. The thought of going to the kitchen or leaving the room, even for water could make things worse [I know, right!] That’s why I decided to do a bit of research and come up with the list of good-quality mini fridges that you could place in your room.

Before I came up with this refrigerator list, I also got in touch with 73 professional gamers and asked them about things or features they look while buying one.

After that I decided to go through different fridge listings on sites like Amazon, BestBuy, and I finally came up with the list of the 10 top-rated mini fridges that are great for gamers.

Things To Consider When Buying a Mini Fridge for Your Gaming Room

  1. The fridge should be small [Basically, they didn’t want to spend a huge amount by buying french door or side by side refrigerators.]
  2. They wanted mini fridges that could keep beverages and water chilled.
  3. 15 out of 73 also wanted a fridge that could store food items and not just limit itself to beverage cooling.
  4. A few of them preferred fridges that could primarily hold beer or soda cans in a neat way and didn’t want something extraordinary.
  5. 64 out of 73 gamers didn’t want the fridge to be near their gaming desk. [So portable refrigerators which are 12V or 6 CAN Mini fridges aren’t a choice]
  6. They preferred spending 10-20% extra if the small fridge was from a reputed brand.

A few aspects which need a detailed explanation!

  1. Size: A compact refrigerator is one of the essential things that one should look for in a mini-refrigerator. Most of the standard refrigerators are more prominent and do not fit in small rooms. A compact refrigerator that is small in size and can store the drinks, along with quick food, should be on your list.
  2. Storage capacity: A good mini-refrigerator with functional storage capacity is the one that everyone desires. While a standard mini-refrigerator can hold up to 120 cans in an average, other mini-fridges can hold up to 60 cans or bottles. Though understandably, you might go for the first option with better storage capacity, it is advised to go for the second option if you have a small room.
  3. Budget: There are various kinds of refrigerators in the market, with tons of features. However, a compact or small fridge is more than enough for gamers. Moreover, it is advisable to stick to the budget while buying a mini-fridge for your gaming room, because you, of course, want to spend more on buying the games!

While revamping your kitchen or setting it up, you often tend to go for better aesthetics. Most women are simply attracted to concept of uniform kitchen. Not only do they look modern, but also saves a lot of floor space. That’s why a lot of us consider buying counter depth refrigerators over the ones with standard depth despite it being a little costly.

Most of them prefer refrigerators whose depth isn’t more than the depth of the counter.  Like the name suggests it is concealed, covered and becomes a part of the furniture in your kitchen. Thereby, providing a neater and modern looking kitchen. Coming to the amount of space saved, A counter-Depth refrigerator usually saves up to 6 feet of floor space than the standard depth refrigerators.

What is a Counter Depth Refrigerator?

Best Counter Depth Refrigerators [2019]

According to Maytag, a known refrigerator brand, Counter depth refers to the distance between the front of your kitchen countertops and your back wall or backsplash. For most of the modern kitchens, it’s usually around 24–25-inches.

Therefore, a counter depth refrigerator is a the one that has an average depth of around 24-25 inches. It is curated in a perfect way to match the depth of your kitchen counter. If you’ve seen this refrigerator style, you surely must have noticed that the width and the height of the refrigerator makes it up for the less depth. Therefore, you’ll still be able to store the same amount of items and yet have more floor space.

Also, the counter depth is more of a size feature than a refrigerator type, therefore take any refrigerator style that you want. It could be a french door refrigerator or a side by side refrigerator, if its depth is around 25-inches, then you can call it counter depth!

Note: Although it is called counter depth, but the depth is NOT equal to that of your kitchen furniture (counters). They’ll still consume a little extra inches of the floor space ahead. However, it is much less than the standard depth refrigerators. The extra inches are generally there for the doors to open up swiftly (If it wasn’t, the doors would end up touching the woodwork, causing damage!)

Also, the models listed here are future-proof and would keep up with your refrigerator requirements even during 2020 and the future years.

How to Buy the Best Counter-depth Refrigerator for your needs?

People choosing a counter depth refrigerator should conduct research before they leave their houses. Here are a few tips to keep in mind before you select your model:

  1. Measure your counter depth: Measure the area where you want the refrigerator to be fitted. The safest way to measure these dimensions is with a measuring tape. Remember to leave some extra inches on the sides since different brands have different dimensions. Make a note of it and make sure that the appliance you get is a little less than the cabinet space you have.
  2. Refrigerator Style: Counter depth is more like size than a type that’s why you can choose the refrigerator style such as French door or Side by Side.
  3. Cost: Counter depth refrigerators are slightly costlier than the standard depth refrigerators, but make sure that fridge you are getting fits your kitchen counter and your budget both.
  4. Capacity: The storage capacity is something we all consider when buying a kitchen appliance. The counter depth refrigerators are available in many sizes and capacities. Look for the one that will be completely utilized in your household.
  5. Style: Although, having this refrigerator style itself is going to make your kitchen look modern. But for the purpose of aesthetics look for the one that merges with the décor of your kitchen.
  6. Features: There is a reversible door technology, smart fridge, hot water dispenser, door-in-door technology, convertible freezer, and a plethora of other options available in counter depth refrigerators that can be opted for.
  7. Appearance: While considering the appearance look if you want a perfect seamless fridge or you don’t mind a little extra popping out of the counter?

These questions and tips should always be on your mind before going to purchase a counter-depth refrigerator.

A mini-fridge with a lock will not only save you a lot of space in your student housing, offices, and recreation rooms but the fact that it can be locked means that you can live in peace with no worries.

It is also convenient to travel with a lockable mini fridge, so you don’t have to worry about anyone getting their dirty mittens on your favorite Pepsi.

The fridge comes in a pearl, metallic white color and the chrome accents serve to make it look even more iconic. It looked like a little bit of a futuristic piece of technology sitting next to my other household items. The door is curved like they used to do in old fashioned fridges, but somehow it gives the machine a quaint charm. The door handle is ergonomically designed with a rubber grip.

As far as storage is concerned, there is plenty. There are two full-width glass shelves and one half-width glass shelf to keep your items. All the shelves are adjustable to allow you to get the maximum out of your fridge. Additionally, there is tall bottle storage to store larger items and a crisper drawer to keep your fruits and vegetable fresh. The most exciting feature for me, however, was the Canstor beverage dispenser.

The machine also comes with an energy star rating, so you will definitely save a lot on that front.

Like its predecessors, the door hinge is adjustable – open it left or right as per your desires. The top of the fridge is scratch resistant and features a chrome finish. If you are in a crunch for space, you can use the machine as a counter-top. Additionally, it uses a new environment-friendly refrigerant, so it is the perfect mini fridge for those of us who are concerned about the planet.

  • Environment friendly

You can also switch the door to the left or right side as per your convenience if you have limited space availability. The unit comes with a lock and key system to ensure your grub is safe from the hands of unwanted people.

The freezer cum fridge has another special feature that I love. It is an under-counter mini-fridge, that is it can fit snugly under a standard kitchen countertop, saving even more space than other mini fridges in this list.

First of all, the appearance itself is a show-stealer. I loved the sleek design that came with the cooler. There is a beautiful exterior digital display with temperature control and it made the whole thing extremely easy to use.

Everything about this fridge is designed to get the maximum out of a small space, while still keeping things classy. There are Store-More door shelves and Store-More drawers to, you guessed it, store more drinks and organic produce. The in-door can rack is a life savior, I was able to store just enough beer. The glass shelves lend it a refined look. There are two more shelves – can you believe it? One half-width door shelf and one full-width door shelf. Just enough to keep my stuff fresh and cold.

This compact machine has another brilliant feature. I could pop out the door to install it, either way, left or right, as per my convenience. Additionally, the lights installed are bright enough to see what is inside. The SpaceWise design is a boon for dorm students. You can install a microwave over your Frigidaire, or simply use it as a counter-top if you are in a bind when it comes to space.

The kicker, of course, is the lock. It’s a key type lock. While that in itself may be old fashioned, what is cool is that it’s a pop-out kind. As soon as I locked the fridge, it popped out the key so there is no chance I would forget it inside.

Pros
  • Compact, sleek design
  • Pop out lock
  • Store-More shelves and door
    Reversible door
Cons
  • Difficult to obtain spare parts
  • The lock can be opened with a wrench

Advantages of Lock in a Mini Fridge

If you are living in a flat and sharing space with some roommates, it is imperative that you get a mini fridge with a lock. How else would you make sure nobody touches your chilled beers and fresh fruits? Or imagine this; you are hosting a party with a few friends in your basement, recreation room, or entertainment room.

How inconvenient would it be to go to the kitchen every time you want to crack open a cold one? Get a mini fridge with a lock. That way, you can keep your iced beverages close enough, without worrying about your kids getting their hands on them.

Lockable mini fridges are also a great companion when you are traveling in a group. They are not just sturdy, compact and lightweight, but also secure. Carry them everywhere you go with the additional security of a lock that will prevent anything from being stolen.

These fridges are small in size and are extremely ergonomic in their design. Especially for students who do not have much room in their dormitories, a lockable mini fridge can not only save space, but it also makes sure that none of your stuff can be misplaced. Additionally, many of these mini fridges come with scratch-resistant tops so you can use them as counter-tops.

These compact machines are also the perfect companion for bachelors and anyone who changes places often. Not only are they portable and easy to carry, but the lock mechanism makes sure none of your eatables will be misplaced even when you are moving to another place. You can check EvaChill’s guide to buying a mini fridge if you’re interested in knowing about the factors we consider before adding every product.

Verdict

There is no dearth of lockable mini fridges in the market, online and offline. However, some are obviously better than others. Depending on your budget, I would advise you to stick with the tried and tested. The older companies are famous and reliable for a reason. A Frigidaire or a Whytner mini fridge may cost you more but if you are looking for a long term solution, it’s best not to go cheap.

The customer services are supportive and it is easy to find spare parts. The lesser-known, cheaper models like Avanti are good if you only want a temporary fridge until you get a bigger, better one. Students looking for a mid-range yet trusted product should give Emerson and EdgeStar a shot. Although the products are old, they have proven their worth over the years. And you can always find one on discount at Target, Amazon, and Walmart.

Energy efficiency is a new standard that people look for when buying appliances or gadgets that run on Electricity. According a report by EIA (United States Energy Information Administration, In 2018, the average annual electricity consumption for a U.S. residential utility customer was 10,972 kWh, which is around 914 kWh per month.

Household expenses are rising and one of the ways to deal with it is to cut down costs is buying appliances that complies with the energy efficiency standards. With technology flourishing, it is not difficult to find gadgets and appliances that are energy efficient and consume less electricity. However, it is difficult to calculate and understand how efficient the appliance is, for most of the common people.

Almost all the refrigerators brands claim themselves to be Energy Star qualified products, but one should not depend solely on those marketing gimmicks.

You would have often noticed Energy Star stickers and star ratings on them but hardly do you get to understand as to how much exactly the refrigerator is going to help you save electricity consumption. With various tiers in CEE Ratings, how do you understand whether Tier 1 is better or Tier 3? Don’t worry, because I’m going to help you understand them!

What is the Energy Star Certification?

Before we begin, Let’s first understand what actually is this Energy certification?

Energy Star Rated Refrigerators
Energy Star Rated Refrigerators

Energy Star certified refrigerators or freezers are 15-20% more energy efficient that than standards set by Federal Standards Bureau. Basically, they are more efficient than the fridge models that are not Energy Star certified.

According to the official Energy Star website:

“If everyone purchases a refrigerator that is ENERGY STAR certified, the USA households will save 715 million kWh per year and reduce greenhouse gases that are equal to 100,000 cars.”

That’s a LOT.

Even if the fridge is efficient by a mere 10%, that could still save a lot in electricity and greenhouse gases.

What are CEE Tier Ratings?

CEE is a group that publishes energy ratings for refrigerators. Their ratings are far stricter than Energy Star certification and follow a Tier based rating.

Understanding their tiers will help you acknowledge which refrigerator you should opt for considering the energy efficiency.

Old Standards

  • Tier 1 – 20% more efficient than Federal Standards
  • Tier 2 – 25% more efficient than Federal Standards
  • Tier 3 – 30% more efficient than Federal Standards

New Standards (updated in 2014)

  • Energy Star – 10%
  • CEE Tier 1 – 10%
  • CEE Tier 2 – 15%
  • CEE Tier 3 – 20%

The consortium has given us 3 tiers out of which the Tier 1 needs to meet at least the guidelines provided by Energy Star while the Tier 2 and Tier 3 are 5% and 10% more efficient than the standard Energy Star guidelines.

Of course, higher the tier, higher will be its price, but in the long term, you get to recover the cost by saving on electricity. Very few models make it to 30% and above efficiency. Here’s a look at the number of fridge models manufactured in various tiers as of the date of publishing.

Energy Star Qualified by CEE Tier Rating Statistics

Federal Minimum Standards

The National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA) was last updated in 2014. These standards keep getting updated every few years. Of course, we will update them whenever they change.

NAECA has set standards for all the types of refrigerators available in the market and divided them into:

  • Mini Fridge
  • Bottom Freezer
  • Top Freezer
  • Side by Side
  • Single Door
  • Chest Freezer
  • Upright Freezer
  • French Refrigerator
  • Commercial Refrigerators
  • Wine Cooler

The fridges that have freezers and ice dispensers will be a little less efficient than the regular refrigerators but are still Energy Star efficient.

Brands that Meet CEE Tier 3 Criteria

  • Samsung
  • LG
  • Whirlpool
  • Maytag
  • Kenmore
  • GE

How to Calculate Electricity used by Refrigerator?

Different refrigerators use different watts of electricity. For instance, A side by side door refrigerator with a freezer will consume more electricity than one without a freezer. Similarly, a mini fridge which is small in size would consume less electricity than french door or the top-freezer refrigerators.

I have written an in-depth article on how to calculate energy usage which will help you calculate the exact electricity cost you will have per month or annually based on the type of fridge you use at your household.

Advancement of technology has resulted in a rise in the number of small appliances in the kitchen. A mini freezer is one such appliance that has seen a rise in sales over the past decade.

There are several reasons why you need one in your home. It helps in keeping your favorite frozen pizza and ice cream pint at the ideal sub-zero temperature. The best thing about it is, it doesn’t consume high energy.

Why Should You Buy a Mini Freezer?

Already know the reasons? Jump to the list!

Extra fridge storage is always helpful for a large family like mine. It helps in the segregation of certain food items from the main fridge. A full-fledged refrigerating unit is just not ideal for students who are living in dormitories or small housing space, so it makes sense to just get a mini freezer to store meats and frozen foods in.

Not to mention the dollars you will save in maintenance of a mini freezer when compared to a large unit. Since they are small in size, they are easy to carry if you travel a lot.

You can also place them anywhere in the house since they do not require a lot of space for storage. And if you decide to change houses, you can just pick one up yourself.

Mini Fridge vs Mini Freezer: The Difference

Know the difference? Jump to the list!

As the name indicates, the Best Mini freezer is a refrigerating unit that has a sub-zero temperature range for storing ice, frozen foods, and ice cream. It cannot be used for keeping things like milk, dairy items, beverages, and fruits and vegetables. It only has one compartment that is essentially a freezing unit independent of a refrigerator unit.

A mini fridge, on the other hand, is a smaller version of a refrigerator. It has the provision for storage of most of the items that we can store in a fridge. You can keep your dairy items and beverages along with frozen foods and ice cream in it. While not all of the small fridges come with a freezer, I’ve tested a few of them which has a freezer. Mini fridges also have a wider temperature range than a mini freezer.

When it comes to power consumption, The tiny freezers are generally heavier on electricity usage because of the higher capacity compressor.

Mini Freezer Buyer’s Guide

Before buying a mini freezer, there are several things that you need to consider. Some of the major factors to keep in mind are – capacity, accessibility, appearance, customer support, energy usage, maintenance, and the size of the unit – just to name a few.

The most important factor, of course, is the capacity. If you are just a student or living alone, 3 cubic feet or less capacity should be enough for you. But a larger family may require a bigger unit.

The appearance of the freezer should be compatible with your kitchen. If you have limited storage space, do keep in mind the size of the unit which is usually given in inches on retail stores.

Mini freezers look small, but they run on a lot of energy. If you have a tight budget, look for a unit that has an energy star rating and requires less electricity to keep your food fresh.

Most of the mini freezers come with the manual defrost feature to get rid of excess ice. If you are someone who does not have a lot of time, try to find something that comes with automatic defrosts.

If you live in shared housing or if you have kids in the house, buy a freezer that has a lock and key system to prevent your items from being stolen or falling into the hands of your kids.

Some units have the thermostat at the back of the freezer, which may be hard to access. So if you have elderly family members in the house, get a unit that has a thermostat in the front or inside the freezer.

Lastly, most of the bigger companies have excellent customer support, with executives that are eager to help you. While buying a mini freezer from a small company, make sure that they have good customer relations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use my mini freezer as a fridge?

Mini freezers generally cannot be used as a fridge, since the temperature range for these units is mostly below zero degrees. But if your Mini freezer has an adjustable thermostat that allows it to turn into a fridge, you can store any items in it.

Do mini freezers make a lot of noise?

Because the compressor is constantly running to keep the machine cool, some mini freezer stands to make a lot of noise. If that is a concern for you, look for a mini freezer that comes with reduced noise levels.

Do mini freezes consume more energy?

A mini freezer has to run 24 hours, as opposed to full-fledged refrigerating units which shut down when cooling has reached a particular level. So, mini freezers tend to consume more energy. But there are certain models that come with energy star rating that have decreased electricity consumption.

Why is my Mini freezer not cooling properly?

If the door for your unit is not closed properly, cooling will be ineffective. Try to close the door and then see if cooling resumes.

Can I store frozen foods inside a mini freezer?

Yes, most units support the storage of frozen foods. However, it is best to check the ideal temperature at which the food should be stored and see if your unit can achieve that.

Can I place my Mini freezer outside?

Mini freezers tend to consume more energy if they are placed outside. So it is recommended to keep your freezer under shade. However, in case if you are having a pool party or an outing, then you shall keep it outside!

Do I need any clearance space to keep a mini freezer?

If you live in a small apartment and have clearance issues, get a mini freezer with the flush back design and a flat back, so that there is is no need for clearance at the back and sidewalls.

Can I use my Mini freezer immediately after delivery?

No, allow the freezer to cool the main compartment enough before placing food items in it. After plugging it into the wall outlet, wait for 2 to 3 hours before storing food items.

Is it absolutely necessary to defrost my Mini freezer?

If there is no ice buildup inside your freezer, you do not need to defrost it. Also, most of them come with advanced auto defrost technologies. However, it is recommended to defrost your freezer every few months for cleanliness purposes.

Do I need to place my Mini freezer on the floor or can I place it on a table or countertop?

Mini freezers can be placed anywhere. Most of them come with self-leveling legs which allow the units to be placed on uneven surfaces.

The Verdict

If you want a Mini freezer that is 3 or more cubic feet in size, your best bets are Midea WHS-129C1 and COSTWAY Compact Upright Freezer. Both units are highly recommended and have excellent ratings on Amazon and other retail platforms. In addition, they come equipped with all the modern features, and the Whynter unit even has a lock if you want to keep your items far away from kids.

For those of you who have smaller families and need only a two cubic feet unit, I would recommend the Whynter CUF-210SS. It has all the features of a larger model and small size without compromising on performance.

If you live in a dormitory and only need a very small freezer unit to keep your food-stuff in, get the Sunpentown UF-150SS. In the 1 cubic feet category, there is nothing better than this model. Along with other cool features, it even has a lock that will keep your food safe from being stolen in shared housing.

Why Should you listen to Me?

After having lived in University campus for several years where I used many models of mini freezers almost all of which seemed to malfunction after 2 months, I think I have gained enough insight into the area to figure out what the best ones in the market are. I have experimented with everything from the best to the worst, so let me dish out the dirt and tell you what works and what doesn’t.

Having said that, over time, I have realized that some companies certainly do a better job of making mini freezers, even if they do not excel at other kitchen appliances.

My top three favorites include Whynter, Danby, and Midea. Different models have different features, but almost all units by these three companies will be flawless and stay with you for a long time.

A freezer in your mini fridge preserves ice and frozen food, but at the same time, it also consumes more space and electricity.

12V Refrigerators – The Buyer’s Guide

Deciding if you want to invest in a Danfoss compressor or a regular compressor. Is a dual-zone fridge important to you or a single zone with a makeshift separator occasionally will suffice? Factors like storage and how the unit fits into your vehicle are more crucial than you think. We hope this has simplified what you are looking for in a 12v portable refrigerator and made the selection process easier.

Most portable refrigerators use highly energy efficient compressors. On an average, a 12-volt refrigerator can consume from 1 to 5 amps per hour. When you plug in the fridge, it tends to draw more energy at first.

Once it cools down the energy consumption reduces. One option would be to rely completely on the power drawn from your vehicle. But regular users recommend using external batteries based on the amount of usage. Opting for solar panels can get expensive but they pay off for the long run.

1. Dual zone 12v vs Single zone: Which One?

The 12v refrigerators usually have the functionality of acting as a freezer and fridge at the same time. Known as the dual zone, this is mostly achieved by creating a partition.

The partition lets the freezer air flow through in a controlled manner creating less cooling in the fridge. But if you are sure of the purpose of your refrigerator and need the same temperature throughout, then opting for a single zone fridge should be the way to go.

2. Why 12V Refrigerator instead of a Soft cooler?

A cooler performs the basic job of keeping your food and drinks cold. Whereas, a 12-volt refrigerator does all things your refrigerator at home can do. 12V fridges are more expensive but they have the advantage of storing frozen foods too.

3. Should You Get as Compressor Type 12V Refrigerator?

A compressor type refrigerator is a more preferred option for refrigeration in comparison to thermo-electric coolers and absorption refrigerators for multiple reasons. Compression refrigerators let you control the temperature. A `12V compression refrigerator functions well even when inclined. They can be used as fridges and freezers. They have minimal power usage, unlike its other counterparts.

4. Deciding between the Top door and side door refrigerator

Both the designs have their own pros and cons. Your pick needs to be based on your specific requirements. Top door fridges are more energy efficient and easier to install. They are rugged and can be used as seats. Side door fridges are generally lighter and work well depending on the space that you want it to fit into.

5. The external size and weight

Sizing is a very important factor to consider when buying a 12v fridge. It is necessary to know where you will place it before you purchase the unit. Measure the space where it will be placed and accordingly purchase a refrigerator.

The weight of the fridge should be a deciding factor too, in case you will have to move it around a lot. Make sure there is enough space for the handles to open up and for you to lift it in and out of the space. Enough room for the cooling vents to function at its best is crucial.

6. The internal storage capacity

This is solely based on the user’s requirement. If you travel solo for short periods then it would be advisable to go small. If you go camping with your family and friends then a bigger capacity fridge would be the way to go.

Keep in mind what type of foods you will carry which will help to decide the storage capacity you need. Frozen and cold foods require separate compartments. Most portable12V refrigerators have wire baskets or separate trays in them. This helps in separating certain foods; placing dairy and beverages aside where they will not spill.

7. Insulation within the refrigerator

Insulation is crucial to the smooth functioning of the unit you will be purchasing. The better the insulation the less cold air will leak out of the fridge. Most top of the line fridges has well-insulated insides preventing the increase of temperature.

In case the insulation does not function well, there are insulation covers or jackets available that you can cover the unit with. The insulating cover helps when the outside temperature is high or if the portable refrigerator is placed in the sun.

8. The pricing

12-volt portable refrigerators are always pricier than the other options such as coolers and absorption refrigerators. But, these 12-volt compression refrigerators give you your money’s worth. If your wallet does not let you buy higher end fridges like Dometic, there are more budget-friendly options.

The budget-friendly options allow you to experience and utilize almost the same features with a difference in quality and standard. If you travel extensively in your personal vehicle then the 12-volt portable refrigerator is a much-needed investment.

9. Battery settings and usage

Most 12-volt fridges have three-stage battery protection systems. They offer systems with automatic switch off before the battery drains out completely. They are much more energy efficient in nature.

10. Monitoring temperatures of the refrigerator

A lot of the 12-volt portable refrigerators have digital displays of the temperature and settings. This makes it very user-friendly as the fridge does not have to be opened to check temperatures. The displays are usually LED and LCD. Some also have a manual knob for settings. A lot of old-school campers prefer manual settings instead of digital displays.

11. Research on the ratings and reviews of the product

Like most electronic products, 12-volt refrigerators should also be purchased from verified online stores only. Before purchase ensure that the fridge you purchase meets all your requirements.

Online ratings are the easiest way to shortlist. User reviews are a trusted way to ensure the quality of products. Customer reviews help in taking that final leap of product selection. Most websites give you a user rating and reviews alongside the product.

12. Warranty and customer service

A valid warranty when you purchase a portable fridge is very important. This warranty ensures a written guarantee that the manufacturer will replace or repair your product. Provided the damage happens within the warranty period.

If your unit is manufactured within the country of purchase, it helps during repairs. It could be accessing the customer service centers or the availability of the parts that need to be replaced. Research on this will ensure that the product has a valid warranty and meets all the specifications of the industry.

Verdict

A good 12V portable refrigerator comes in handy during your travels. It keeps food, perishables, beverages, medicines and more safe and cold.
