A mini fridge with a freezer is the most common type of fridge people buy when they want extra storage for food. There are options that don't have a freezer as well. You can find refrigerator-only fridges and small box-like fridges.
Mini Fridge With Freezer
If you want easy access to ice cream and other frozen treats, make sure that the mini fridge you choose has a freezer section. Many of the mini fridges we have available have a separate freezer compartment just like a full-size refrigerator.
Another factor to keep in mind when shopping at BJ's for a mini fridge with a freezer is some of them have separate temperature controls. You can increase the fridge temperature without having to also increase the freezer temperature with one of these models. It's not a necessary feature as one temperature knob works well in keeping the refrigerator and freezer at cold enough temperatures.
Also check the defrost type when shopping for a mini fridge with a freezer. Some have manual defrost whereas others use partial automatic defrost. You need to defrost the fridge when the frost formed becomes 1/4 inch thick. Automatic defrost uses heat to defrost. Manual defrost involves waiting for the frost to melt on its own.
Beverage Mini Refrigerator
If you're certain you'll only use your small refrigerator for storing beverages, choose a beverage mini refrigerator like our NewAir 90-can beverage refrigerator. You can fit lots of drinks inside, and you see what's inside. The racks are also removable to customize the fridge to your liking.
Small Refrigerator for an Office
If you need something smaller than the average mini refrigerator, we recommend the Frigidaire 1.6-cubic-foot eraser board refrigerator. You can easily fit it in a small space. It can keep your lunch and snacks cold at the office. A small refrigerator like this can be a good addition to your home or your child's dorm, too.
Some of the mini refrigerators we have in stock feature a reversible door, a vegetable and fruit crisper, and adjustable mechanical temperature control. If you are left-handed, then a reversible door feature is nice. You can open the fridge from either side.
We have several mini fridge choices that are energy efficient and ENERGY STAR certified, such as the Emerson 3.1-cubic-foot two-door refrigerator/freezer and the Emerson 4.4-cubic-foot single-door compact refrigerator. They are only 50–80 watts.
Small refrigerators come in several different sizes and styles, so you can find the right one for your home, your office or your child's dorm room. Sign up for a BJ's Membership to receive exclusive coupons and save money on your purchases.
