The Benefits of Having a Mini Fridge
8/2/2016 2:26 PM
There are numerous reasons why a mini fridge is useful, especially in conditions where the space is limited and the capacity of a full-sized refrigerator is not available but a refrigerator is needed to keep things cold, for example, in a bedroom, in an outdoor kitchen, or in a cafe.
Size and style
You are able to find a compact refrigerator in a range of sizes from about 1.5 cubic meters to 6 cubic feet. Some compact refrigerator models consist of a small freezer section for ice and have at least one or two internal shelves and a rack on the door cans, etc...
The exterior is usually covered in black stainless steel, brushed silver, or white. And some styles have handles while others have a small script on the door.
Look for a mini fridge with an adjustable thermostat, so you can keep various food and beverage products in different temps, and shelves should be easy to remove for better cleaning.
In addition, with an Energy Star qualified compact refrigerator, you can maximize your energy and dollar savings without sacrificing the features you want, which is also better for the environment.
When operating a compact refrigerator, place the refrigerator in a stable area, level and plug the cable into a three-prong plug. Keep the area around the refrigerator clear for at least a few centimeters to allow adequate air circulation.
Remove odors from the refrigerator by cleaning the internal areas with a mixture of baking soda and water.
Clean the condenser coil on a regular basis to help the compact refrigerator work at its best. Unplug the power cord and pull the base grid off the bottom of the refrigerator. Use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment or use a soft cleaning brush to remove dirt and dust from the coils and then put the baseline grid back in place. Reconnect the refrigerator and give it a few hours to cool back to the original temperature.
If the fridge seems to be sticky, clean the door gasket. Use a clean damp cloth to wipe the board and apply a light coat of petroleum jelly if necessary.
Make sure you close the door completely each time because if not, the refrigerator works double time to keep food cold, which costs more energy.
Where to buy?
Compact refrigerators can be found in many electronic outlets, or you can buy it online. Measure the space where the refrigerator is placed before you buy your mini fridge to make sure it will definitely fit into the chosen area.
If you keep your mini fridge clean and well run, then you will definitely savor its excellent cooling and convenient benefits for years to come.
