There are four
Things to keep in mind if you are considering buying a mini freezer:
There is a high chance that if you are considering purchasing a mini freezer, you are not ready to spent a lot on your refrigerator.
Now I am not judging, and wanna just help you find a freezer that is suitable for your budget.
Different models have a different price based on the style and the kind of features they offer. You can decide at the features you want according to your budget.
In simple term, the capacity of a fridge is the usable volume or basically how much food you can keep in it. Usually the capacity of a freezer is measured in cubic feet.
I will be honest with you, these compact sized freezers provide limited storage hence while investing into a specific model you might keep in mind, the purpose you are buying the freezer for.
Also remember that two models can have the same dimensions but different capacity, this is because every manufacture use their own way of minimising the floor space, which can be done by arranging the shelves and providing number of bins attached to the door.
The basis difference between size and capacity is when I use the term “capacity” I am referring to the space provided inside the fridge for your food, while the term “size” refers to the space the freezer takes in your kitchen. As compared to a full sized refrigerators, they take up less space and are ideal if you have limited space in your home or office. They come with drawers and adjustable shelvers.
From my experience, there are two things that you should know about size:
Firstly, there is a compressor at the back of the fridge, which is responsible for the cooling, however it tends to get heat up, and needs proper ventilation, so my advice is to not stick your freezer to the wall and shall add up a few inches to your measurements, Secondly, your measurements must allow the swinging of the door, thankfully most of the models reviewed below come with reversible doors.
4. Energy Usage:
As mentioned above, the compressor on the back of the freezer releases heat, which result in unnecessary waste of energy.
It is recommended that you invest in a model which is Energy Star rated as they are energy efficient and better for the environment.
It will also help you save a lot of money and have shown better results in the long run.
Different Styles Available
People who say that “looks don’t matter” have never seen beautifully styled appliance, if you are like me who not only goes for the features of a kitchen appliance but also likes to have a beautiful kitchen then you are in luck, because these compact freezers come in different styles:
Living up to its name, this style comes in a form of cube and is the commonly used styled, as it can hold up ore stuff irrespective of its size and is easy to fit in small area. Though they are comparatively cheaper, they are not well insulated.
Having size between 80 to 96 litres, this style is slightly bigger then cube fridge. They are expensive as compared to cube sized but they can hold more goods and come in with locks and reversible doors.
Under the Counter
Providing a large storage between 3.5 to 4.5 cubic feet, these are the biggest compact freezer and hence are expensive. They come with features like canned drink dispenser, locks and separate crispers.
As the name suggests, these freezers are specifically designed to stored beverages. They provide certain temperature appropriate for drinks.
If you are wine fan, then this fridge is your best choice, as some models are specifically made for storing wines, they provide appropriate temperature and come with tinted doors to prevent UV rays to enter and spoil the taste and quality of your wine.
Things to remember before investing in a mini- freezer
Now before I suggest you some of the top rated models, I would like to share some of my personal tips, which you must keep in mind while investing in a mini freezer, these are-
- If you are gonna keep perishable items in your fridge like meat, you would really like to keep your distance from models that use superconductor or thermoelectric.
- Always opt for models which come with glass shelving as they are easier to maintain. Most of the models come with adjustable shelves which you can set according to your need.
- Have a clear idea of the features you want from your fridge, which can be determined by determining the purpose you are gonna use your fridge for. The features can include- reversible doors, defrost, temperature control, etc.
- Look for two door models for your frozen foods, as it will provide just the right temperature. Such models contain two separate doors for the fridge and freezer, and hence you can only open the fridge door for general use without spoiling your frozen food.
- You should also compare models having similar features, you might end up with a freezer with similar features for less price.
- Do not forget to inquire about the warranty of the model as they come handy in case of return, replace and repair. The warranty may vary from 90 days or 3 months to one year.

I loved this model. It is quieter than the other ones and holds a good deal. Gallons of milk would have to be laid on their side.
A half gallon fits on the door plus a 20oz bottle of soda. The freezer holds about a weeks worth of food for two people. It is deep enough to hold full size ice cube trays but only comes with a tiny little 8 cube ice tray.
It seems sturdy and keeps things cold without having to crank it up the entire way.
A family member liked it so much he is thinking of purchasing one. It was on the pricey side but I was willing to pay for the separate fridge/freezer and the reversible swing door. If this holds out I will most likely purchase another someday. The outside is textured so the black doesn’t show finger prints.

7. Nostalgia CRF 170COKE Coca-Cola 1.7 Cubic Foot Refrigerator
This model is sure to take you down a memory lane and for all right reasons. Retro inspired, this Coca Cola designed compact freezer is sure to make you fall in love with it.
However it has a capacity of 1.7Cu. Ft, which is very less storage space as compared with other compact freezers, so I would advise if you are planning to use a mini freezer for storing food then this model is not your cup of tea.
However if you plan to keep a fridge stocked up with beverages in perhaps a game room or office or just wanna have a mini bar, then this model is suitable for you, as it provides ample of space for containing your cans and bottles.

The recessed door handles contributes to its sleek design and allows easy opening. I would recommend this model for storing your beverages in your game room, bar or dorm.
I had got this for my self to take to my dorm to collage, works great and gets very cold.
This is a real fridge, not like a lot of the “novelty” fridges with the Coke emblems.
The only real negatives are the stickers are more like contact paper, and if you are not careful unpacking it, the tape holding the doors will start to peel the stickers off when you remove it, the other thing is the packaging is not real obvious how to open the box, remove the straps and cut the tape along the bottom and the top just lifts off. All in all it’s a great purchase.
