Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little fridge I put in weeks of research to find a good quality compact fridge at a decent price for my daughter's dorm room. Found out two things early on - 1) a thermo-electric model is not the way to go since it's dependent on a constant outside set temperature to properly cool its interior and 2) freezers in compact fridges are totally useless. This Danby model has more shelves, more room, a more efficient use of space, is self defrosting, uses a compressor to keep things cold, does its job very well, easy to maintain and is reliable. Excellent value!! February 8, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I was looking for. I was looking for a compact refrigerator that would fit in a specific location- which it did perfectly. I use it as a drink cooler in a hobby room. It is efficient and keeps soda cans very cold- just as I like it. The refrigerator is quiet and well built. Even though it cost a bit more than other refrigerators of its class this one fit the bill for size, its energy star rating and the fact it is built in the USA is a plus for me. April 17, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the All Refrigerator Uses minimal energy, cold top to bottom, holds a variety of bottles, cans, jugs, and it is made in America. I am very satisfied. October 11, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed. Quiet and efficient Nice small refrigerator. No light inside but then for a small unit... No real need. Cycles on and off but all modes are quiet and unobtrusive. Good for a small office. March 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice looking little fridge Very nice quality. Give it time when first running to cool down. i first had to let it run on the highest setting but find i can turn it down after a few weeks running. Can put a lot of items inside and i like the soda can feature on the door. Just remember it is being brought by ups and will be left on your doorstep. its a massive heavy package. December 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stays cold! Great features! I LOVE this refrigerator! Had one with a freezer and it was a nightmare. This one stays cold and I love the can holders! Perfect for my office! June 5, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect as a pop & wine cooler. Would be better if both front legs adjusted so you could tilt back to help door close. Need to be able to adjust tilt front to back. With the door loaded it must be pushed all the way closed to be sure it is closed tight. June 19, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Prompt delivery, easy to order, just what I wanted. To date, I'm very pleased with my Ref. Simple instructions, light enough (55lbs) to easily move. Quick cooling time. May 15, 2012
