A mini fridge makes it easy to store fresh food and chilled drinks in your dorm, office, or even RV. They have a fraction of the capacity of regular kitchen fridges, but it is still enough to store salads and several cans of your favourite drink. Some mini fridges also include freezer space. We’ve found the best mini fridges and have added them to our round-up.

Subcold Super85

Extra-large capacity

The Subcold Super85 mini fridge has an 85-litre interior, with enough room to hold a gallon of milk, a 2-litre of soda, and so much more. One of the adjustable shelves is specially designed to hold bottles so they can be stored on their side and not take up too much room. The fridge’s other three wire shelves are also adjustable. The door includes tempered glass so you can see what’s inside without opening the fridge first. For added security, the door locks and comes with two keys.

The best thing since mini fridges

This cute mini fridge holds only six soft drink cans, but it’s designed to be used with a typical AC electrical outlet or in your car with the included USB cable. It chills your beverages as low as 0 degrees Celsius. There is a removable shelf that is handy for holding smaller items, like fruit and yoghurt. The AstroAI Mini Fridge runs quiet and comes in five fun colours. There is a top handle to make it easier to carry along with your luggage, day bad or other fun gear all at once.

For on-the-go cooling

The Apicool C15 car fridge looks more like a cooler, which makes it easier to bring along in the car, RV, or boat. You plug this fridge into your car, and it will start chilling. Once it’s reached either the fridge or freezer setting you’ve chosen, it will automatically stop drawing power until it warms up again. The fridge is well insulated to keep it cool for a while so long as it’s kept closed, much like a traditional cooler. This car fridge comes in two different sizes: 15 litres and 20 litres. Both hold plenty of canned or bottled drinks along with perishable items like fruit and cheese.

Choosing a mini fridge

A mini fridge is a good investment for smaller spaces such as dorm rooms, offices, or RVs. You can even set one up next to the couch for a never-ending supply of chilled drinks. They typically don’t have enough room to hold a lot of food, usually a few snacks. Mini fridges don’t reach the temperatures needed for chilling wines properly but do work well for canned beverages. Before purchasing a mini fridge, know where you want to put it. This helps you determine the max size you can buy. It’s also helpful to know if you will be using your fridge exclusively for drinks, or if you’ll be storing food in one, too.
