While a man cave is a room where you should have all the creative freedom, you will want to consider a couple of essentials. Apart from a comfortable reclining chair and a 4K TV, a mini-fridge is a worthy investment.
Finding the right one should be a straightforward process as the market offers hundreds of products that vary in price, size, and capacity. To help you get started, we’ve done some research and created a list of the best mini fridge for man cave offers.
In this article, we will go through the main features and potential downsides of our top five products. Let’s get started!
Top 5 Picks
1. NewAir Beverage Refrigerator Cooler with 126 Can Capacity
First is a product manufactured by a well-recognized mini-bar brand, NewAir. Highlighted with a load capacity of up to 126 cans and able to cool at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, it is a product that you should consider. The NewAir Beverage Refrigerator Cooler is available in three different designs – Beers of the World, Classic Black, and a Stainless Steel variant that is perfect for a minimalistic man cave.
First and foremost, we want to discuss the structure of this refrigerator cooler. All three variants are set at 18.6 x 18.5 x 33.3 inches in size and offer an interior capacity of 3.4 cubic feet, translating to 126 x 12oz beer cans. Made out of premium stainless steel and with a right-hinge glass door, it is a long-lasting product that should withstand heavy use.
If you decide to go for the “Beers of the World” variant, then you will be able to choose the beer brands that will be printed at the sides of this mini-fridge. The great feature about this design is that it doesn’t only offer great functionality but will also serve as a unique decor for your man cave with an elegant glossy finish.
Discussing the sophisticated design details, we were pretty happy with the wire-inspired shelves that can be altered to make space for larger beer cans. The adjustability of the SplitShelves goes a long way when it comes to maximizing the storage capacity that this cooler offers. As mentioned above, you can store up to 21 six-packs of 12-oz beer cans in a single mini-fridge. To further increase the capacity, NewAir installed a compact footprint that takes almost no interior space.
With its main function being to keep your drinks ice cold, there are 7 different thermostat modes. Also, the industry-standard compressor ensures that the NewAir can cool beer at a temperature of 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The transparent glass doors and interior LED lighting contributes to the unique design and make this mini fridge perfect for almost any indoor setting.
Our main issue? The fact that it is pretty noisy. Other than that, you are looking at a compact and spacious mini-fridge that is worth its price.
