Drink Refrigerator: 7 Fun Compact Beverage Refrigerators Keep Drinks Cold 2017

You could buy a simple drink refrigerator to keep your beer or soft drinks cold, but where is the fun in that?  Why not buy a drink refrigerator with some style that will enhance you family room, home office, cubicle, man cave, or any room of your home?

A drink refrigerator is also commonly known as a beverage refrigerator and the main characteristic of most of them is a glass door in the front so you can see your beverages and be able to do a quick inventory without opening the door.  Beverage refrigerators with glass doors also allow you guests to see what’s available without having to ask.  Also, a glass door just looks cool, so it’s no wonder they are popular.

Drink Refrigerator Nostalgia BC24COKE 80-Can Main ViewNot all beverage refrigerators have a glass door front and so we included one in our list that does not.  We included that one because we are NASCAR fans, in particular Jeff Gordon, and since Chase Elliot replaced him in the number 24 car, we couldn’t pass it up.

The drink refrigerators in our list, don’t just look good.  They are convenient drink coolers with quality construction, durable materials, and long-life compressors, so you should get years of use from them.  Just to make sure, just because small appliances are notorious for giving up the ghost before their time, you should also consider an extended warranty from SquareTrade.  They are available in dollar amounts and duration to match your purchase and when things go wrong, they are a bargain.  We have them on all of our appliances and smartphones and they have saved us several times.

What are some other great features of these fun refrigerators?

Branding

We found a drink refrigerator for just about every fan.  You will find NASCAR, NFL, NCAA, Jack Daniels, Harley-Davidson, and Coca Cola brands in our list.  Also, we included a home vending machine, because nothing could be cooler than that in your man cave or family room.  It doesn’t require money, although some of you would probably prefer if it did.

Drink Refrigerator Nostalgia Harley-Davidson Nostalgic Bar and ShieldCans or Bottles

We all have our favorites.  Some are can people, some are bottle people, and some will accept either.  Fortunately, most of the drink coolers in our list will store both kinds.  One difference between a regular compact refrigerator and a drink refrigerator is that because beverage coolers have a glass door, there is no door storage.  Most believe it’s worth giving up door storage for the ultimate coolness and convenience of a glass door.

Temperature Range

Wine is stored at a higher temperature (55 degrees is considered near ideal) than beer or other beverages, so if you’re considering storing wine in one of these drink refrigerators, only one of them is capable of properly storing wine.  Since none of them are dual-zone, you will have to store either wine or beer and not both.

 

 

 

 

Eco-Friendly Refrigerant

The newest environmentally friendly refrigerant is R600A.  If this is important to you only three of them use this new refrigerant.  Check the features before you buy.

Drink Refrigerator Nostalgia Jack Daniels Beverage ChillerInterior Lighting

One of the great features available on many drink refrigerators is interior lighting.  These days that means LED lighting which is both energy-saving and great looking.  If you want the great through-the-glass lighted look, make sure the model you choose has that feature.  All the models in our list have interior lighting, but of course the NASCAR solid-door model won’t give you the same look.

Double-Pane Glass Door

Glass is a good insulation material, but adding just one layer of air between two layers of glass greatly increases its insulating capability.  So, just like in your home, a double-pane glass door will keep drinks cooler while using less energy.  If this is important to you, look for double-paned glass doors on your drink refrigerator.

 

We searched manufacturer sites, social media, small appliance forums, refrigerator forums, customer review sites, retail sites, and consumer sites to find the most popular and top rated branded compact refrigerators.

Take a look at our list and see if one of these stylish compact mini fridges is the best beverage refrigerator for your needs!
