Freezer performance is something else that is important to keep in mind. Just because a fridge has a freezer does not mean that it is going to keep everything perfectly frozen. Compact refrigerators that only have one door are known for having freezers that do not keep foods frozen properly because the temperature is too low, the door is opened frequently or the items in the refrigerator can be frozen. Keeping a thermometer in the refrigerator and a separate one in the freezer compartment is a great way to see how well the freezer is working.
Mini fridges that have a separate freezer compartment are ideal for storing a smaller number of things in the freezer. Ones that have a separate door are better for storing a larger number of things in the freezer.
The freezer compartment should also have its own thermostat that is separate from the thermostat of the fridge to make sure that everything stays the temperature that it should.
The same thought applies to freezer compartments. Look at the measurements to determine whether it will be the appropriate size for what it is needed for. Some mini fridges come with a freezer compartment so small it can only hold one small tv dinner. It is a freezer compartment, so the product is advertised as having one, but it is so small it winds up being useless.
The temperature can fluctuate between warm and cold, meaning that meats might not stay at a safe temperature. They can get too warm, which causes bacteria to grow. Then, they can get cold again so when a person opens the fridge, they will feel that the meat is still cold and think that it is okay to eat, resulting in food born illnesses, such as food poisoning.
The one area where wire shelves outshine their glass counterparts is durability. These shelves can hold more weight without cracking or breaking. The worst thing that is going to happen is that they will bend, and it’s going to take a lot of weight for that to happen. They will last longer and look great the entire time as long as they are cleaned regularly.
If you just need one to store a few cans of pop in, a smaller one will work just fine. Read More
Size should be considered when thinking about where the mini fridge is going to go too. If it is going to go in an office underneath of a desk, you want to measure the area carefully and pay attention to dimensions that are listed in product descriptions so that it fits in that little spot underneath the desk. Make sure to measure any area before purchasing a product so that it doesn’t block doorways, heater vents or look too out of place. A larger fridge will be an eye sore in a professional office.
Stand alone or not
Make sure it’s allowed
Some dorms allow students to have mini fridges, but dorms that have had infestation problems in the past may have stricter rules regarding these. Students may be required to use a shared kitchen area instead of having their own fridge or microwave in their dorm. Some dorms also Read More
Offices often have the same outlook that dorms do. They may not allow mini fridges due to higher utility bills or previous infestation problems. They may have certain size requirements, or prefer that employees keep mini fridges out of site because they think it will look unprofessional. Every building will have a different policy, so it’s important to remember that this is not a one size fits all thing. One college or office may allow them while another one will not. Ask before ordering a mini fridge to make sure you don’t waste money.
Read product reviews
Read the product reviews, from the five-star reviews to the one-star reviews. This can help you discover whether the fridge is worth the money, Read More
It’s important to look at product reviews carefully, though. If a product only has one review, it can’t be considered an accurate description of what your own experience with the fridge will be. That one person may have had a horrible experience, but they could be one in a million. If a product only has one review, take it with a grain of salt. If a product has a thousand reviews, you’re more likely to discover more about the product before you buy it.
Amazon has a great feature that allows potential buyers to see whether the review was left by a person that purchased the product. If a person bought it before they left a review, it will say verified purchaser by their name. This eliminates the possibility of fake five-star reviews and helps consumers learn about products from unbiased customers.
Product reviews will not always say every problem that a fridge has, but they are a great way to find out likely problems to save you time and money.
