Best small fridges for 2021

Our pick of the best small fridges from all our reviews.

The best small fridges keep your food consistently chilled to a safe temperature so it stays fresher for longer. The worst models will leave you with lukewarm milk and spoiled vegetables. 

We’ve tested hundreds of fridges, so we know those that will make a great addition to your kitchen and the ones that won’t.

When you're short on space, you want your small fridge to give you the maximum usable volume so you can get the most out of the space inside it. Manufacturers quote a fridge volume, but we test this and often find the numbers we discover vary (sometimes quite dramatically) from those on the label. We quote all the real usable volumes in our fridge reviews.

You can find our pick of the best small fridges in the table below.

    This is the best integrated under-counter fridge we've reviewed, by no small margin. It had a near flawless run through our tough tests, showcasing exceptional chilling speed and impressive temperature stability. It's not the most energy efficient fridge around, and there are cheaper alternatives that scored well in our tests, but if your budget extends this far then this one is hard to beat.

    This cheap fridge did excellently in almost every one of our tough tests. It's easy to set up, chills quickly and is reasonably energy efficient. Its temperature stability in warm rooms could be better, but we still think this is a great option.

    This is an integrated fridge with an ice box that chills quickly and keeps its contents cool even when the room temperatures begin to fluctuate, thanks to its extremely accurate thermostat. It's not cheap, but if it's within your budget, you won't be disappointed.

    This impressive all-rounder chills super-quickly and maintains a rock steady internal temperature, regardless of whether the room it's in is hot or cold. Energy efficiency is good, too, and it's quieter than most. You'll have to readjust the thermostat when you set it up, though, as the manufacturer's recommended setting makes the fridge too warm.
