Product Review: FR100-115 1.7 Cubic Foot Fridge
Price Range: $100 -- $150
Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a compact, quiet mini fridge for cooling a small selection of foods and beverages.
Sleek and Space Efficient
Like many mini fridges these days, the FR100-115 benefits from a flush back design so it can fit nicely in areas where space is limited. The unit comes fitted with two front levelling screws to allow you to stabilize the fridge. Other functional design aspects include it’s reversible door which provides the flexibility to move the hinge if you require right to left door opening.
Variety of Color Choices
This RCA mini fridge is available in 8 stylish color choices to give you the look to match almost any room décor. The interior capacity varies depending on the model. All color varieties apart from the Black, White and Stainless Steel models have a 1.6 cu ft capacity, so their interior differs slightly.
And so on to the interior. Inside there is 1.7 cubic foot of space in a layout what appears to be pretty neat. There is one slide-out wire shelf dividing the top and bottom sections. In-door storage consists of two shelves. The lower door bin can hold 2-liter bottles. The upper dairy rack is very small, so here you’ll only fit something like two small yoghurt’s or one beverage can on it’s side.
At the top there is a 0.4 cubic foot sized freezer which acts as an ice cube chamber and comes supplied with a small ice cube tray. As expected, this small freezer is very limited so it won’t freeze non-frozen foods, making it only suitable for freezing foods which are already frozen.
At the lower rear of the unit there is an external temperature control knob that provides a range of 1-7, giving you convenient access to regulate the interior temperature.
Guarantee: 1-year limited warranty.
The FR100-115 from RCA is a very popular refrigerator as it’s stylish and sturdy as much as it is functional. This model carries all the standard features we’d want in a mini refrigerator and rates highly for its energy efficiency. What’s more it runs quietly, so it’s suitable for the office, dorm room or anywhere you need some quiet.
We’d have liked the manufacture to have included a door lock, but that would have increased the cost somewhat.
Overall, a fantastic mini fridge.
