    Golden Review Award: 4 From Our UsersWe bought this primarily to store diabetic insulin, to free up space in our main fridge freezer but it also comfortably holds about 10 cans of drink which is a handy overflow space for us. To keep the fridge at around 3 degrees, we have the dial on 4.5. We also ordered a digital fridge thermometer from Amazon, just to keep an eye on a consistent temperature, due to the importance of keeping the medicines at the right temperature. Some have said in other reviews that the fridge is noisy but it isn’t at all. We keep it under the stairs in the hallway and we hardly notice any noise at all. Overall, a great fridge and I’d highly recommend it.

    Golden Review Award: 4 From Our UsersBought this for my bedroom in order to store drinks and snacks. Item arrived on time, left sitting for 3 hours as instructed to by a large sticker on the fridge. VERY quite, a lot of reviews on here state the fridge is very very noisy however I’ve not found this the case, I keep it on setting 4 which keeps my cans ice cold to touch. The compressor cuts in every 5-10 minutes for around a minute or two then kicks back off. This is from owning for a few days so I will update if and when issues arise!

    Unfortunately I had to send this fridge back as it had been dropped by the delivery people. I did however get to try it out before it went back. For such a small fridge it really does pack a fair bit of shopping and it’s not noisy at all. I bought it for my Son as he is off to Uni this year. What I really liked was the small freezer in the top right corner. Big enough to fit fish fingers burgers etc and to fill the little ice cube tray that comes with it. It’s lightweight enough to carry but doesn’t come with any kind of handle like the last mini fridge I had. I will definitely be buying the same one to replace this dropped one.

    Bought for my daughter who’s at uni. She loves it and thinks the storage capacity is just right, and the energy efficiency is great for a small fridge. It seems to keep her food fresh and the wine cold, so happy with the temperature control. Very happy with the purchase.

    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our UsersWanted a smaller fridge for storing some things that need to be kept refrigerated for a day or so that is used for work purposes. I did read reports of noisy motors in these units but I think that this may apply to the smaller units (43 litre capacity?) units. I have not found this unit to have a noisier motor than is standard and in fact is very quiet in use. In hindsight and this is my fault, I should have got a slightly bigger unit of about 100? Litres as space in these is limited by where part of the internal motor is. That is purely to meet my own particular needs. Would be good as a counter top fridge for extra capacity to top up that of your normal fridge.

    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our UsersTerrible quality . After only 4 months of use its totally stopped working after smelling a rancid burning odour inside.. Most of reviews how bad this fridge is is totally true.. Please do not believe one of the Female reviewers on here with the name S****.. I think she works for ur Russell Hobbs!! It’s true the freezer cannot freeze your ice cream or other things you want freezing. And freezer builds up of so much ice but cannot freeze your items..
    What a waste of money, not even worth a freebie!!
    Its now being sent back to Amazon for a full refund..
    Very very disappointed, especially when it’s a branded produc

    Great as second fridge. As i have a small kitchen…don’t have space for very large or tall fridge.

    Only downside, ice box ices up quickly.

  14. KentRmqtaejv says:

    It is a very good one. You have the program to set the temp as high or low as you want. I have it at medium, and it’s very cool. It is Light, and it’s bigger than I thought. So very happy with it. Just remember! You have to plug it, and not to turn the fridge on until 3hours have past while plugged into a power shocked

    A really great little fridge. I only use the it for holding bits and bobs for making sandwiches for work and for that purpose it is excellent. I would take the advice of other reviewers when using it for the first few days and keep an eye on the temperature as it gets really cold at the setting as recommended in the manual. Also, if you place items under the ice box, make sure that they are not tall enough to come close to the unit as this area of the fridge is probably the coldest and I have had food freeze up. Just store some flat packets of food here.

    Other reviewers have said that fridge can be too noisy but I haven’t found it so (although obviously it does make a noise when the pump is operating) and my kitchen is open planned at the back of my lounge.

    Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to buy a small fridge.

    Superb for camping. Compact for packing and great storage capacity. The small freezer compartment worked brilliant, but is only small. Good for ice cubes and small tubs of ice cream.
    Temperature control and cooling speed were good. Would definitely recommend for camping.

    Literally one of the best things I’ve ever bought. Keeps things a great cold temperature.
    Perfect for someone that doesn’t want to keep getting up to go to the fridge (like myself) plenty of room for bottles or cans and other items best served chilled

    I’m impressed with the size and how much storage actually I have inside the fridge . The noise level is acceptable and is really good size for my studio. Only if they can add a light in the fridge would be just amazing. I’m glad that I choose this brand fridge . Thank you!!!

    My caravan fridge finally gave up the ghost (30 years old) to replace it would cost about 350 the Russel Hobbs table top was just over 100 it will only run on 240 volt but the camp sites we use have 240 volt hook up so it was a good purchase.

    Warning: this is a short term review based on only a few weeks of use.

    I bought this because I rent, and the installed fitted kitchen fridge consumes energy like a blast furnace, and is less insulated than a naked cross Atlantic swimmer. So I decided to get a small fridge for under 100 instead of haemorrhaging money and causing an argument with the landlord (who would no doubt just replace the old fridge with another energy inefficient fridge, then put the rent up)

    I am VERY happy. It is very cold, very efficient and well insulated. Ive used a laser thermometre on the outside “white” part on all sides and barely find a +/- 1c difference. It uses very little electricity and its very quite. I literally put this in my bedroom and when the TV is on I barely even hear it when it fires up.

    My only slight reservation is the thermostat, not that it causes me particular problems. Even on the lowest setting its still VERY cold. Maybe because its new, and its in a cold room which is optimal, but I already have it turned to the lowest setting, and tbh I would happily have it slightly warmer if it meant using less electricity, but it wont go down further.

    I have seen some complaints that water “pools” in the fridge. True but not the whole picture. Basically the cooler box IS the internal cooling element, and its metal. The fridge is very insulated, so when it turns on to cool, the metal element gets suddenly VERY cold and any moisture vapour condenses and freezes on it. If your room is humid this will be a problem, if not, it wont. Personally this happens to me only when I am drying laundry in my bedroom. Humidity = condensation.
    The simple fix is to keep an eye on it, and if you see drops of frozen water on the underside of the chiller tray, turn the fridge off for ten minutes, then just as it starts to thaw, wipe the underside with a cloth and all the ice drops separate immediately onto the cloth. Job done. Like I said though, its only ever happened to me when Im drying lots of laundry in a coldish room.

    I would also note that when I used a power metre plug, my old fridge was costing more to run, than the value of the food I was preserving. This fridge is so efficient Ive turned it down to level 1, and stopped monitoring it.

    Pros
    Cheap to buy
    Very quiet
    VERY energy efficient.
    Surprisingly spacious considering its size
    Very very cold
    You can pack it to the gills and it will keep things cool

    Cons
    If there is damp or humidity, it will condense and freeze on the cooling element.

    I got this fridge to save money, its paid for itself. Energy efficiency is advancing very quickly these days and this thing is cheap, effective and efficient.

    Gifted to my brother during isolation, he’s done nothing but praise it. Says it keeps his cans cold and food chilled. No complaints.

    Seems to be a really good fridge. Looks good, easy to reverse the door and it runs silent as far as i can tell (fridges are always noisy the first time you use them until they reach temp) Fits cans of drink and full size milk cartons in the door. Plenty of space on the shelf for lunch and snacks. Icebox a bonus for summer months!

    It is exactly as i expected, however it does have some cosmetic damage – the top corners are dented and theres a dent in the side, but as i am using under a counter with other objects next to it, i will accept it. Might not be idea if you have it on a worktop on display.

    I bought this fridge because I wanted to try and cut down on energy costs, didn’t see the point in having a large fridge with a few items.

    I like it so far, milk is ice cold even though its on lowest setting,
    I’m a single parent with two teenage boys,so it’s a sufficent size for my needs to hold basic items. can hold 2×4 pints milk cartons, 1kg cheese in door, bottle wine, chicken and ham slices etc, I usually decant my meals into containers so I’d say could hold 4 circular containers at the bottom or 6 of the plastic rectangular ones I reckon.

    It’s very quiet, a lot quieter than my bigger fridge.
    At the moment I have switched off the larger fridge, I leave the door open at night. I only intend to use it if I do a really big shop if I’m entertaining eg Christmas, so will need more fridge space.

    I only have ice cubes in the freezer part at the moment, not tried anything else will update when I do.

    I place a drip tray below the freezer part, not as much water as others have complained about, but you will get icicle partials below the ice box which I suggest you just wipe off weekly.

    I assume the longer the door I open it may create more vapour?! Who know, I’m not a fridge expert, but I’m sure my bill will have been reduced as a result of using a smaller, energy efficient fridge, makes sense.
    NB: energy efficiency labels have changed, I didn’t realise this until I queried the ratings so I suggest you Google for more information.

    Overall I’m pleased with my purchase so far.
