"Nice looking, roomy, quiet and does what it says. The first one arrived damaged but I called Customer Services
and within 36 hours the damaged fridge was collected and replaced. Laura (Customer Services) was very polite, friendly and extremely helpful and I feel I can buy again with confidence."

"I would recommend this mini fridge to anyone. It is nice and large with plenty of space for full length 2 ltr bottles, cans or even the large beer cans on the top shelf as it is about twice the height of a standard Coca Cola can (In fact it could do with another shelf) it is almost silent (now and then I hear it pop if the compressor comes on but only slightly and then nothing).
Mine came with some minor faults but nothing worth worrying about:
- There was a small crack in the inside plastic but it doesn't affect the seal so is only cosmetic
- When I changed the side the door opened, I found that the holes for the screws didn't quite match up and when it was put together originally it looks like the hole was stretched with brute force which is what I did as well for the other hole I needed, but it again was only cosmetic and this time is on the bottom so you can't see it.
- Is double glazed at least and looking closely it could be triple glassed! I guess that is one of the reasons for the A energy rating.
- The compressor is silent unlike the previous model of Husky which a few mates have that sounds like a train!
- The paint and stickers look perfect
- Apart from the small misaligned hole, everything fits together perfectly so the seals have no gaps and the door opens/closes easily
I do suggest you follow the instructions and wash the inside before use! I didn't and got a really strong plastic smell when opening it."

"Bought this fridge for my boyfriend who's a big Coca Cola fan and he absolutely loves it. Really quiet, so great for the study or bedroom. Holds lots of cans (bought 32 cans thinking that would fill it but there's room for more!). Had a problem with the first one as it arrived damaged. Drinkstuff were really good at sorting this out, sending a replacement out on next day delivery and it arrived in perfect condition. All in all, great product and great service."

"The delivery was a lot quicker than I expected especially as I ordered just before Christmas which was good. The product itself is also very good. However make sure you do adjust the temperature on the back because I left mine too high during winter and one of my drinks had ice in it. All around a great product with almost no noise and good power. Thanks again for the speedy delivery."

"I love my drinks ice cold and this little baby sure does that. It looks great, it gets drinks ice cold and is so quiet you wouldn't know it was there. So if you want a great looking top quality fridge, I recommend this one."

"We had been looking for a decent mini fridge for a while now, but we didn't want one of those tiny cheap £20 ones so we decided to invest in a larger more expensive fridge. We choose to pay for next day delivery and the item arrived quickly. The fridge has a thermostat on the back like most larger fridges have which is a nice feature as it means the cooling unit is not constantly on like they can be with some mini fridges. The fridge is well built and feels solid and sturdy. It consists of a red plastic outer body with a clear front door, with a white inside. There is a cooling plate on the back which does get very cold, but this is where the problem comes in. Things at the back of the fridge get very cold, but things you put near the door don't get nearly as cold as the cooling plate does not seem efficient enough to cool the whole fridge completely. Inside there are two fixed levels, the base and a half way level and there is also a removable shelf which can be set on 3 different levels. I have it set at the top just for cans. The cans on this shelf get very cold as they are right next to the cooling plate, but at the front I have large bottles standing up and these never seem to get very cold. They do get cool enough but not nearly as cold as my kitchen fridge can get bottled drinks. Overall this is a good fridge, but because of the way it chills, I think a price just under £100 would be more justified."

Drinkstuff says: Thank you for your comments Mark. The Coca Cola Mini Fridge is one one of the lowest priced fridges that you will find that feature a thermostat. The other major selling features of this fridge are that it is small and quiet. It achieves the low noise because there is no inbuilt fan. Therefore, it can be placed in bedrooms and living rooms without causing a problem. However, the disadvantage is that the cooling can be uneven, but sufficient for most purposes. A few years ago these fridges were under £100, but in recent years the has increased due to increased manufacturing costs.
"This is a stylish little beer-fridge that looks fantastic in our kitchen. Buy some bottle RakaStakas
to go with this and you can fit an entire case of beer (24 bottles) in here no problem. Go easy on the beers and you can fit 4 bottles of wine in on the top-shelf too. Genius!"
