We incorporated all of this information into our recommendations below.

RCA RFR786-BLUE 2 Door Apartment Size Refrigerator with Freezer, 7.5 cu. ft, Retro Blue

RCA RFR786-BLUE 2 Door Size Apartment Refrigerator with Freezer

by RCA

LARGE CAPACITY: This mini fridge has 7.5 Cu Ft of storage capacity to let you keep all of your favourite food and beverages cool. Combines easy-to-use features with a retro and practical design to complement any kitchen.

The RCA RFR786-BLUE 2 Door Apartment Size Refrigerator with Freezer is a good option if you want a budget-model fridge that doesn't look cheap. It's a nice match for a retro-style kitchen, and it's relatively quiet, too. The fridge's compartments are roomy enough to hold all of our groceries, and the glass shelves are easy to clean. The freezer is fairly small, though, and while there's room for a couple of large bags of ice, it's much less roomy than our last pick's. The fridge's digital controls are simple to use, and the door bin makes retrieving items from inside the fridge easy. The fridge's exterior is made of plastic, not metal, so it scratches easily, but otherwise it's built well. The fridge is Energy Star-rated, and As we mentioned, it's fairly quiet. The fridge's temperature is controlled using a dial, and while the dial is easy enough to access, it's a bit difficult to read. The fridge's interior temperature is a bit inconsistent: The lower compartment is generally cool, while the upper compartment tends to be hotter. the console is sturdy, but it's a bit difficult to clean.

Danby DFF070B1BSLDB-6 7.0 Cu.Ft. Mid-Size Refrigerator, Frost-Free Apartment Fridge with Top Freezer, E-Star Rated, 7, Black Stainless Look

Danby DFF070B1BSLDB-6 7.0 Mid-Size Cu.Ft. Refrigerator

by Danby

Smart Design: Modern smudge free stainless look makes this a very attractive full fridge with freezer on top

This Danby F70T5BFDB refrigerator is a great value for a full-sized refrigerator without the full-size price. It lacks some of the bells and whistles of the more expensive models we tested, but its simple, streamlined design fits neatly into many applications, from apartments to offices. Its freezer is spacious, its shelves are adjustable, and its drawers and doors are easy to clean. The shelves and door shelves are made of plastic, so they don't hold up to heavy items very well. The freezer and refrigerator have separate thermostats, which can be a problem if you're running multiple appliances. Overall, though, this refrigerator is a good deal for the price.

RCA RFR786-RED 2 Door Apartment Size Refrigerator with Freezer, 7.5 cu. ft, Retro Red

RCA RFR786-RED 2 Door Size Apartment Refrigerator with Freezer

by RCA

LARGE CAPACITY: Has 7.5 Cu Ft of storage capacity to let you keep all of your favorite food and beverages cool. Combines easy-to-use features with retro and practical design to complement any kitchen

The RCA RFR786-RED is a good choice for an apartment or a small kitchen. It's a compact 2-door refrigerator with plenty of room for food and beverages, and its freezer compartment is spacious enough to accommodate a large frozen pizza or a bag of hamburger buns. The freezer's interior lighting is bright, so you can easily see and find what you're looking for, and the adjustable legs make it easy to adjust the height of the fridge when it's on a non-level floor, and the reversible door makes it easy to place the fridge anywhere, whether it's in the kitchen, in a hallway, or in a garage. The RFR786-RED is noisy, however, and it's a bit louder than our previous pick, the Frigidaire FFTR758T1, which is a bit louder, but still quiet enough to hear over the TV. Also, the refrigerator's interior lighting is a bit dimmer than our previous pick. The RCA refrigerator's freezer is also a bit smaller than our previous pick, and it doesn't have an icemaker. Also, the refrigerator's door handle is made of plastic, and it's a bit flimsy, and the freezer door has a slightly wobbly hinge.

RCA RFR786-BLACK 2 Door Size Apartment Refrigerator with Freezer

by RCA

LARGE CAPACITY: This mini fridge has 7.5 Cu Ft of storage capacity to let you keep all of your favourite food and beverages cool. Combines easy-to-use features with a retro and practical design to complement any kitchen. Freezer Capacity (cu. ft.): 1.5

The RCR786-Black is a stylish, retro-looking refrigerator that performs well, and it's fairly big too, with enough space for fruit, vegetables, and meat. The reversible door lets you mount it either to the left or the right, and adjustable legs ensure it will remain level, even on uneven floors. The shelves slide easily, and the door bins are spill-proof. The refrigerator is well insulated, and the interior light illuminates the entire refrigerator, making it easy to find items. The ice and water dispenser comes with two different-sized ice cubes, and a large, spill-proof glass shelf holds large containers of juice. The adjustable thermostat helps you set the temperature, and the freezer has plenty of space and has adjustable shelves. The RCA RFR786-Black refrigerator has some design flaws, though: The doors hinge open at an angle, so items on the shelves in the back can fall over. The shelves in the freezer are a little thin, so large containers of juice can spill over onto the floor. The refrigerator's exterior is coated in fingerprint-proof black paint, but the door and glass shelves are white, so fingerprints show up easily.

RCA RFR741-BLACK Apartment Size Large Compact Refrigerator, 7.5, Black

RCA RFR741-BLACK Apartment Large Size Compact Refrigerator

by RCA

Adjustable - Easily interchange the door side, adjust the feet Height and remove or change your shelves Height for a personalized experience

The RFR741-BLACK from RCA is a stylish, compact refrigerator, and its spacious 7.5 cu. ft. interior is big enough to hold plenty of groceries. It has two temperature settings, a defrost setting, and a freezer temperature setting. The freezer isn't as cold as we would like it to be, but it won't hold much food. There's also a door alarm, so you'll always know when you've opened it. The fridge's interior light helps you find food items quickly, and the shelves are adjustable, so you can organize them however you like. The 0-degree freezer setting is too cold for drinks, so we'd recommend setting it to 0 4 degrees instead. The RFR741-BLACK is loud, and its two internal fans sound a little loud, too. This refrigerator is loud enough to disturb people in the next room, so keep that in mind if you're putting it in a busy kitchen. The refrigerator's interior light works well, but it's a little dim, so you'll still need to open the door to see what's inside.

This refrigerator is huge! It's significantly bigger than the Frigidaire Gallery series we tested, and it holds more food, too.

The refrigerator's interior is bright and airy, and its stainless steel exterior looks great. The temperature controls are easy to use, and the door shelves are spill-proof, so spills won't make a mess. The vegetable crisper bin is convenient, and the vacuum-seal feature makes it easy to store leftovers or foods you want to keep fresh. The ice maker is in the freezer drawer, so it's out of the way, but it's convenient, too, since it's front-and-center for easy access. The refrigerator is quiet, and there's also an ice maker in the freezer. The freezer is quiet, too. The refrigerator's design includes touch controls, so it's easy to set the temperature and/or turn the refrigerator on or off. The refrigerator has a water filter system, but it's an extra cost ($30), though the filter is reusable.

COSTWAY Compact Refrigerator, 3.4 cu. ft. Classic Fridge with Adjustable Removable Glass Shelves, Mechanical Control, Recessed Handle for Dorm, Office, Apartment (White)

COSTWAY Compact Refrigerator

by COSTWAY

2-Door DesignLarge 3.4 cu. ft. capacity gives you the space to keep fresh foods organized and enough room to store frozen foods. And the two exterior doors allow you to access the freezer or the refrigeration compartment.

The COSTWAY Compact Refrigerator is an attractive, compact refrigerator that measures 17.9 by 15.5 by 20.1 inches (L x W x H) and weighs just 36 pounds. It has a 3.4-cubic-foot capacity, which is smaller than most mini refrigerators, and it's a good thing, as we found the interior to be cramped. The compartment for sodas, juice, and milk was quite small, and we couldn't fit a large juice bottle inside. The ice tray fits nicely inside the door, and the ice stays frozen solid for 48 hours before melting. The refrigerator makes a quiet sound, and it uses environmentally friendly AC power. The refrigerator comes with a one-year limited warranty.

Moccha 3.4cu ft. Compact Refrigerator, Fridge Freezer w/Double Doors, 7 Levels Thermostat, Quiet Mini Fridge for Kitchen, Dorm, Apartment, Bar, Office (White)

LDAILY Moccha 3.4cu Compact ft. Refrigerator

by Moccha

Double Door with Freezer: Classic double door configuration allows you to take foods quickly and easily. And the tight sealing strip locks the interior with the outside air to ensure stable temperature. Separately equipped with a freezer compartment, it has more functions and keeps your food fresh for a long time comparing with ordinary mini refrigerators.

The Moccha compact refrigerator has a sleek, modern look and is compact, but it only holds 3.4 cubic feet of storage space, making it best suited for a small apartment or dorm room. The two doors have adjustable hinges, and the glass shelves are removable and adjustable, so the unit will accommodate a variety of items. The refrigerator has other useful features, including two adjustable shelves in the freezer, a vegetable box, and two door bins. The freezer also has its own light. The fridge has auto defrost, and the door bins have separate temperature controls. The Moccha refrigerator is quiet, has an easy-touch control panel, and is energy efficient, with a 3.5-star energy rating. The fridge has simple packaging and is easy to put together. One minor complaint is that the doors wobble a bit when opened. The fridge works well in kitchens and small spaces, and it's a good choice for roommates or college students.
