When buying a mini fridge, the first question to ask yourself is what location. There are mini-fridges, which are more reminiscent of hotel minibars and only have room for a few drinks. These devices, which often impress with their modern design, are ideal for conference rooms. However, if the mini fridge was to be used in an apartment, it would need to provide a bit more storage space.
Also energy efficiency class refrigerator is an important purchase criterion. Electricity is becoming more and more expensive and a fridge usually works 24 hours a day. Anyone who opts for an appliance with a low energy class saves money in the long term and is environmentally conscious when traveling. Energy classes range from A to G, with A being the best class.
It’s also interesting cooling capacity, i.e. what minimum temperatures are possible. There are appliances that cool only to a comfortable drinking temperature, others reach the values of a normal refrigerator and are then also suitable for storing food. Some mini fridges even have a special cold storage compartment in which particularly sensitive foods, such as seafood, can be kept longer.
Another important purchase criterion is the volume from the refrigerator. You certainly don’t mind in the conference room if the device hums quietly on its own. But if the mini-fridge is in a one-room apartment that doubles as a bedroom, loud noises could seriously disrupt a night’s sleep.
Also note the exact refrigerator dimensions, especially when it has to disappear in a closet or fit in a corner of the room. And in addition to all these rational considerations, there is also personal taste in design that influences the buying decision. There are mini fridges that are as modern as if they were built in the future. And then there are equally beautiful devices that impress with their retro design and would have looked their place in a 1950s apartment in this form.
