1. Freezer– The fridge contains a full width freezer, independent from the rest of the fridge. Unlike many fridges, the freezer keeps cold enough for ice cream and other frozen foods. It also comes with an ice cube tray.
2. Shelves and doors– The fridge comes with 2 full width and 1 ½ width adjustable glass shelves (3 total). You can move and adjust these shelves (or remove them completely for more storage space) as you wish to fit your needs.
3. Large capacity– Relative to many other fridges this size, the (insert name) is sleekly designed for the intent of providing as much space as possible. This being said, there is more than enough room for a 2 little bottle, and 10 cans just in the door. The rest of the fridge is built to house many times more.
An amazon review remarks that…
“The top shelf holds two 64oz growlers, plus sixteen or so 12oz bottles, or a few 22oz ones. The bottom shelf doesn’t hold bottles, but takes eighteen or more 16oz cans…The front half of it (the middle shelf), though, is perfect for 12oz bottles and holds fourteen or so of them”
4. Energy certified– The product is a 120 volt fridge and is energy star compliant. As indicated in the chart the fridge would only require about 27 dollars of electricity every year.
5. Canstor beverage dispenser– This innovative little feature on the fridge works well and its a unique part of the product that most other fridges don’t have.
Amazon Reviewer General Feedback
The vast majority of the amazon feedback is positive for this fridge. With over 1000 products review and an average of 4.1 stars, the (insert name) is tough to beat. An overwhelming 60 percent of the reviews as of this year rated the product 5 stars.
The very few negative Amazon reviews of the product generally were about a few fridges that were a bit damaged upon arrival. Although its unlikely that you will receive a damaged product, it does happen on occasion.
- Extremely durable and long lasting
- Orderly and well designed for maximum food and beverage space
- Adjustable shelves
- Energy efficient
- Clear instructions in manual on how to install
- Freezer compartment keeps food actually frozen unlike many other small fridges
- Nice and quiet
- For the size and quality of the product, you pay a reasonable price
- The warranty does not replace the fridge but instead gives you a refund
- Although it is smaller than a regular fridge, transportation can still be tricky
- The rear half of the second shelf space is slightly elevated making it incompatible for 12 ounce bottles standing upright
Personally I would recommend this fridge to anyone who simply is looking for a durable, spacious, and affordable counter height fridge. Whether it be the office, your college dorm, or a work site this fridge is a dependable product from a company with a long lived history of trustworthy products.
