Excellent bar fridge

Have had it for several years, both inside and outside, it works a treat, never missed a beat. Great size for wine, champagne, beer and small plates/platters, never really used the freezer. The freezer never really needed any defrosting. I now live in a really small house and have a large fridge, so don't need it anymore.


This is one of the best appliances I've ever owned and certainly the best bar fridge. We all know what a pain in the a**e cleaning a fridge is. With this one when the icebox has a bit of an ice build up you just push a button, the fridge turns it self off, defrosts and turns itself back on again. There's a plastic tray under the ice box which you then simply empty a bit like an ice box tray.
When I was looking to buy a bar fridge this F&P model was the only brand I found with this feature. Worth it's weight in gold!
Push button automatic defrost, quiet, keeps drinks very cold. A quality product.
There is nothing to disklike.


I owned an Italian bar fridge prior to this one, and it was very expensive. This New Zealand made product absolutely leaves it for dead. It's a very well made product, very quiet, easy to clean, easy to maintain, and uses hardly any electricity. It has been ideal as an office fridge, bar fridge, and spill-over kitchen fridge. If you're looking for a good bar fridge, don't buy anything else.
The stainless steel finish is very easy to clean. It copes very well on hot days and would suit an outdoor application such as a beer garden or pool area cabana. When the ice around the freezer is getting too thick, just place the water catcher bucket (supplied) underneath it and press the defrost button. Keeps things very cold and chills drinks in the door very quickly. It's very quiet and uses hardly any electricity.
Anything placed on the shelf immediately under the freezer will also freeze. Many people just leave the water catching tray there, but if you're not defrosting, it can take up a lot of usable room. I tend to use this part of the shelf to chill drinks very quickly and use a digital kitchen timer to remind me to take the drinks out. My wife left 2x 500mL milk drinks there once and they expanded and made a big mess of everything.

Questions & Answers

Want to use in b&b room. Any comments about the quietness of operation? Looked for a noise level in db, but couldn't find it anywhere.

It's very quiet. I had one in my office for many years and didn't really notice the noise. Also had one as a stand alone fridge in a bedroom and it makes about as much noise as our tick tock wall clock. If you can sleep with a ticking clock in your room then the bar fridge will be a walk in the park. My bar fridge are all stand alone so they make more noise than a built in. Since it takes up the same room as a dishwasher you can make it built-in under a kitchen bench and it will make even less noise. Lastly you can also put noise dampening foam around the back of a built-in cabinet and you won't hear a thing.thanks for your information. I'd still like to get some info about noise level in db, but your personal experience is most helpful.

Just confirming, does this fridge have an interior light? My current bar fridge doesn't (different brand) and it's a pain.

Yes it does..The P120 model does have an interior light .Yes it has one but the switch is activated by the lid of the compartment at the top of the door. This means if you ever take the lid off to fit taller things in your bar fridge, the interior light will stay on when the door is closed.

What would cause my P120 to freeze up quite often? I notice today that there is a build up of ice not only on the ice box but also on the pipe beside the motor! Thanx

The fridge is not frost free so opening and closing the door more often will cause ice to build up faster. High humidity will do the same, as will leaving the door open a crack or perishing door seals. Put a bright light inside the fridge like a battery operated lamp and see if you can see light coming out of the fridge seals anywhere around the whole perimeter of the fridge. You can also just physically examine the seals all the way around the door. To defrost the fridge use the defrost button and the drip tray that was supplied with the fridge.
