I've been wanting a mini fridge for quite some time. I'd look at some in the stores and they were all well, boring! For those that follow me you know I like things that stand out and are different, just like me. That's why when I found the Nostalgia Coca-Cola fridge I knew it was the one for me.
The Nostalgia Coca-Cola fridge is a mini fridge that has the Coca-Cola polar bears on both sides of the cooler. Growing up I LOVED these bears and it does bring back some warm and fuzzy memories for me. The one thing that isn't warm about this fridge is what you place into it, as it can chill your drinks down to 32 degrees! Let's take a look at some of the other specifications of this fridge:
- Holds eighty 12-oz. cans or sixty 16-oz. bottles on 3 adjustable wire shelves
- Customize shelf positions to suit your storage needs
- Frosted, double-pane glass door with stainless steel frame
- Illuminated with bright LED lights
- Adjustable thermostat from 32 to 50 degrees
- Adjustable leveling feet
- Commercially compliant
- 85 watts
- 110 volts
- 2.4 cu.ft. capacity
- Metal construction
- Wipe clean
- Measures 17" L x 19" W x 28" H
- Cord measures 70" L
- Weighs 48.75 lb.
- ETL, CETL certified
- 1-year manufacturer's warranty
When I got the fridge in I was able to pick it up and move by myself, but it is slightly awkward, so I'd recommend two people lifting and moving this fridge around. The graphics on the sides of the two polar bears enjoying a Coca-Cola is priceless and something I tend to find myself staring at whenever the fridge is in eyesight.
There is a frosted glass door that allows you to see into the inside of the fridge and what kind of drinks you have available, without opening the door. To be able to see inside there is an LED light that you can switch on (its on bottom right and side on the back, it's a little hidden at first) that helps to illuminate all of the beverages that are chilling in your fridge.
They say you can fit 80 12 ounce cans into the fridge, but I normally have various sizes of drinks that I place in the fridge, so I can't comment if 80 will fit. I think it would take some calculated Tetris style work though! The shelves are removeable and you can place them on different levels to accommodate a variety of beverages. I've placed champagne, wine, bottles, and cans into the fridge with no issues.
The Coca-Cola fridge has an adjustable thermostat, again on the back side (kind of hidden) that you can use to make it colder or warmer. There is a light hum when it kicks on the cooling process. It sounds very much like my full size fridge in the house.
It even has a locking feature that you can use to keep people from taking your drinks. You can protect your beers or ensure that minors do not gain access to any adult beverages. I also like to lock it up to ensure sketchy neighbors can't take my good beer (see video below).
The Nostalgia Coca-Cola fridge is not only an excellent mini fridge, but a centerpiece for your home. The polar bears are sure to be loved by your whole family and the cold drinks inside will only increase those smiles.
