"I'm very impressed!"

Glass shelf, wider freezer compartment and the door compartments restrain bottles. The stainless steel with the black also looks awesome and matches all the appliances. The cooler works but I get standing water and ice on the 4 screws. Total exposure of fragile components. It was as gorgeous as the picture and in perfect condition. I'm so glad I purchased this little fridge. I purchased the lime color and it POPS!

Nostalgia RF6RRAQ Final Thoughts

"Don't do that."

- The power supply is directly connected to the TEC; no modulation whatsoever. I use it to store my facial serums that need to be kept cold. I have yet to plug it in but it seems fine so everything should be okay hopefully! It's a great little cooler but a little annoying I have to wipe up a pool of water. My parent also bought one in navy color, so she can use it for her short trips. Clean, shiny, and had no scratches or dents. I use it to keep small water bottles cool so my riders can be refreshed.

"I love my mini fridge!"

I use it to keep a gatorade cold in bathroom& it does that well as of now. Perfect for anyone who is bedridden. Mine was definitely new in the original manufacturers packing. I purchased the lime color and it POPS! The price was great for the size, feel like it was a deal. It's like Owning a little bit of the YouTube beauty celebrity life. It's not a problem, but an extra centimeter in height or width could improve it.

"100% recommended!"

It's like Owning a little bit of the YouTube beauty celebrity life. My old fridge had a wire top shelf. Only just got this fridge today so I can't rate the durability or efficiency yet. Just the normal box that it comes in. It holds a 12oz gatorade, it could probably fit a 20oz gatorade. I use it to store my facial serums that need to be kept cold. When I received the refrigerator I was first very pleased with the look.

"It's perfect for my desk."

I didn't want a fridge that took away from the theme. This is a great mini-fridge for the office. Don't believe the hype about dents, damages and loud noises! Also if it isn't level it would run louder. Let it sit in there for 24hrs and you are set. The little tiny freezer really works well. One careless move and yours could irreparably damge it.

"Seems solid."

The cooler works but I get standing water and ice on the 4 screws. I use it to keep small water bottles cool so my riders can be refreshed. I purchased a warranty so it's covered if anything goes wrong. So, that's all I was looking for, not something to stare at. When I received it, THERE WAS NOT EVEN A SCRATCH. I have not used the warming feature. I swore that if it was dented that I would send it back.

"I have zero complaints."

Firstly I waited over a month to write a solid review on this fridge. So you have to be VERY careful unpacking and installing it. Seems roomy enough for my things too. This company stands behind its product and truly puts its customers first. Audrey lives there, as do other stars from the 50's. When I received it, THERE WAS NOT EVEN A SCRATCH. I work on the opposite side of the building to our kitchen.

The refrigerator is nice and quiet, I have it in my bedroom and I can't hear a thing. The weight is actually lighter than my handbag tbh. I do have one minor heads-up on a poor design choice. I purchased this to stop my roommate from stealing from me which she does frequently. The fridge works as advertised and is a great little addition to my car. It's like Owning a little bit of the YouTube beauty celebrity life. We haven't tried the warming feature yet.

It was plastic wrapped with lots of foam. Still room left for a few more things if needed. This is a great little fridge for my skincare. In addition to the dent, there is some damage to one of the parts in the back. I have my skincare in it at home and wanted to also use it for when I travel. It holds a 12oz gatorade, it could probably fit a 20oz gatorade. The noise level is fair but that doesn't bother me.

"But it comes to my waist."

- The claimed 48W of cooling power is way overstated. That way I can use standard 12v power supplies and batteries. I've put room-temp water bottles in there and found them cold 2 hours later. I was literally in the Sahara desert. The price was great for the size, feel like it was a deal. WOULD BUY AGAIN but hope I don't have to any time soon. Perfect little fridge for under my desk at work.
