Pros: Nice size, look, good if you're not a serious cook.
Cons: Freezer is not as cold as hoped for, but will do.
I own the Black Kenmore Elite 4.9 cu. ft. Compact Refrigerator
First of all, there is a downfall, which is the freezer section. I wouldn't even call it a freezer- more like an extra cold chiller. Don't expect ice cream of any kind, popsicles, or frozen vegetables to stay frozen in this top compartment!
Aside from the freezer mishap, there is a chiller at the bottom which is more like a transparent drawer than anything. Granted, it does keep you things a tad crispier, but just that, only a bit. This means that there is no temperature control therein, and it is not airtight.
The door, however, has many shelves and adds a lot of stowing space, that is, for smaller things. You can only fit a liter of cola or a gallon of milk in this by removing a shelf, which isn't hard ,and there is also room for plenty of cola cans, salad dressings, butter, condiments, you get the idea. The door is also easily reversible, meaning that you can switch sides that the hinges are on so that it opens from a different direction if you're cramped for space.
The 2 shelves that are included are height adjustable. One is a wire rack, and one is glass. The plastic flap that hangs over the 'freezer' can be removed, I'm guessing, and will add more space. I know this is a freezer though because it came with a little ice tray and imprinted on the 'flap' is " Please defrost when frost builds up to 1/8" "
This refrigerator is 4.9 cu ft inside, with outer dimensions of 33-3/4 in.H x 22-3/4 in.D x
21-3/8 in.W. I definitely recommend it over a mini-fridge to anyone who is going to college or would just like to stow food in an entertainment room. With the adjustable shelves, the amount of food you can store is much more lifestyle-appropriate.
Bang for the buck
Because it is larger than a conventional mini-fridge, the asking price ,$199.99, is a great deal. I am happy with the compartments because I am not in great need of crispy asparagus and hard ice cream. This will do great for anyone who is single.
