Some of the top manufacturers of mini fridges as of 2015 include Danby, Keystone and Whirlpool, according to Ezvid. Some of the factors to consider when purchasing a mini fridge include size, quality and energy efficiency.
The Whirlpool WAR488BSL is compact, making it a good choice for people looking to save space. The appliance comes with a five-bottle-slot shelf, and can hold a 2-liter bottle and up to eight soda cans. It is also energy efficient. The downside is that the unit does not include a small freezer.
The Keystone Energy Star Mini-Fridge is especially good for a dorm-room environment. The unit does not take up too much space but still has sufficient room for drinks, condiments and produce. The model provides three shelves for storing produce. The adjustable cooling settings allows for storing ice cream and other cooler items without melting. The unit is also fairly priced. The downside is that it does not come with a small freezer.
Lastly, the Danby DAR195BL is compact, sleek and offers a good amount of interior storage space. The unit comes with a freezer compartment that can hold up to two frozen meals. The unit can easily be placed on a counter, in a cabinet or under a desk. The interior is over 14-inches deep, leaving enough room for produce, yogurt packs, condiments and eggs. The downside is that the model can be costly, although it is found to be worth the price in features and functionality.
