Mini Freezers

Mini freezers come in a variety of different types. When considering a mini freezer purchase it is important to consider the particular storage needs you are attempting to address before selecting a particular type of mini freezer unit.
There are five basic types of mini freezer available for shoppers to select from. These are small upright freezers, small chest freezers, medical freezers, blood freezers, 12 volt portable freezers and mini commercial freezers.
Mini Upright Freezers
There are many different models of upright freezers that can be purchased in miniature sizes.   Small freezers like these are ideal for situations where a front opening freezer appliance is required, but only a minimal capacity is needed. These are simply scaled down versions of full sized stand-alone upright freezer models – they are often used as bar fridge freezers.
Mini Chest Freezers
Also available in stores are lots of small chest freezer options. These devices are handy when energy efficiency is required in a freezer – they are more efficient than upright units. Appliances of this type are very handy for constrained spaces where there is not room to open a front mounted door. Being able to access the freezers contents from above reduces the floor space required for installation a chest freezer.
Mini Medical Freezers
Small medical freezers are appliances specifically designed for freezing products in medical and laboratory settings. A medical freezer is usually a very well insulated appliance designed to keep the contents in very deep freezer. Many models are capable of freezing to -20, -30 or -35 degrees Celsius, an important requirement in scientific applications.
Mini 12 Volt Portable Freezers
12 Volt freezers are used for a variety of diverse applications. They are very popular for use on fishing and camping trips as they provide easy to use off-grid frozen produce. Some buyers even purchase 12v car refrigerator freezer units for their vehicles – both for in town use and major off-road expeditions.
Mini Commercial Freezers
Many retail establishments require small glass door display freezers for their premises. Mini display freezers are frequently found in gas stations and convenience stores where they are used for the display of spontaneously purchased items like ice-cream and the like. Small commercial freezers also are often frequently seen in the checkout lanes of supermarkets.
As I have discussed, there are many different types of mini freezers available. Whatever your needs for frozen items, one of these different small freezer categories will certainly be appropriate for your particular application.

Small Refrigerators – 8 Compact Fridge Options

If you are in need of refrigeration, but have limited space to place appliances, you are probably in need of a small fridge or small freezer. There are many different kinds of compact fridges, with models suitable for nearly every conceivable application.

Slimline Fridges

Many kitchens have very limited space available for appliances; and need small refrigerators that are sized accordingly. For a kitchen that has a narrow space available against one of the walls – that runs from floor to ceiling without obstacles such as cabinets – then a Slimline fridge freezer is a great match.
Under Cabinet Fridge Freezer
Other small kitchens may not even have this much space; if space can be found beneath a cabinet it is possible to purchase an under cabinet fridge freezer. These appliances are installed in a similar manner to integrated dishwashers, and tuck nicely away into a small space without adversely impacting your kitchens floor plan.
Compact Fridges
Some kitchens simply do not have for an ‘installed’ refrigerator at all. For these situations the best solution can be a compact countertop fridge. These models are generally very cheap and have a minimum set of features. Simply plug them in, and sit them on a countertop or table – or even on the floor in an out of the way spot.
Bar Fridges
Not all fridge freezers are intended for kitchen use. One popular use for a small refrigerator with freezer is to use them as a mini bar fridge. These mini fridges are available in two types. Firstly there are general purpose portable fridges that have been ‘assigned’ the task of holding the drinks – a no frills but budget friendly option. Secondly a wide variety of ‘specialized’ bar fridges are also available – these mini fridges with freezers come loaded with features, and can cost a significant amount.
Dorm/Office Fridges
Many dormitory rooms or office spaces have a need for a small fridge to allow refrigeration and/or freezing of food and drinks in a location that is convenient to the user of the space. Popular choices for this application are any of the portable or compact fridge freezers available on the marketplace.
RV/Caravan Fridges
Many people install a small refrigerator or small freezer for use in their RV, travel trailer or caravan. For this application one of the better choices is a 3 way fridge. These versatile refrigerators can be powered off of mains power, 12v DC or Propane; allowing great flexibility as to when and how these appliances can be ran.
Car Fridges
A fridge or fridge freezer intended primarily for use in a vehicle will need to have 12v DC power capability. Ideally a specialized 12v DC fridge with quality compressor based technology will be utilized. While a 3 way fridge will do in a pinch, they have serious drawbacks that seriously limit their effectiveness as a car refrigerator.
Camping Fridges
The ideal fridge freezer for camping purposes is a 3 way fridge. The already mentioned ability to operate these devices off either gas or electricity offers great flexibility. The stationary nature of a campground allows easy setup of a propane tank to power the fridge when electricity is not available.
As has been demonstrated, there are a lot of potential uses for small fridges. This brief run-down of some of the more popular usages should get you started in identifying the correct small fridge freezer or small refrigerator for you. Keep in mind also that if money is tight there are many cheap small refrigerators available in stores.
