REVIEW A great, stylish all-rounder with family-friendly capacity, the LG LSXS26366S delivers on style and substance.
The reasonably priced, energy efficient Danby DAR017A2BDD mini fridge has a small, 1.7-cubic-foot capacity. Because of its size, it can sit on a counter or fit in a dorm room or den. On the inside of the door, there’s a spot for a 2-liter bottle as well as dispenser that fits six soda cans.
The Koldfront TWR181ES wine cooler holds 18 standard-size bottles in two separate zones that can keep both red and white wines at ideal temperatures. It also gets cold enough to chill sparkling wines.
The Magic Chef MCWC12B is the smallest wine cooler model we researched, but it still holds 12 bottles of wine at a time.
This wine fridge holds 12 bottles, and even though it’s bigger than other units that hold the same amount of wine, the Avanti EWC1201 is still compact enough to fit on a counter.
The Danby DWC93BLSDB is a single-zone, freestanding wine cooler that uses a thermoelectric cooling system, so it runs quieter than fridges that use compressors. It cools between 43 degrees and 57 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes it a good choice for white wines and lighter reds.
