I absolutely love my new retro fridge. It looks amazing and the finish is beautiful. It’s performance is perfect, cools very fast and maintains its temperature. Great price and I love that there is no freezer. Heaps of room and also has a double bottle holder. I’m now thinking of buying a nice wine fridge by Husky.
Some elements of poor design .... but excellent performance!
Just received the fridge after ordering online. First impresssions:
1: There is no handle, or indentation to easily slot fingers in to open door. Have to awkwardly jam fingers into the door clearance to open the door.
2: The condenser evaporator tray is a cheap piece of plastic which rests precariously (loose) on top of the compressor motor. If this dislodges there will be water spilled over the floor.
3: Looks good, but poor design for a $579 bar fridge!
Post script 28th Jan 2018:
Although the fridge has the above design flaws, so far it has excellent ‘thermodynamic’ performance. The fridge is so well insulated that the compressor hardly runs, and is completely silent most of the time. This is in stark contrast to a lot of fridges available in the market today.
Well done Husky! But please consider those design issues I bought up earlier.
Very quiet, heaps of room, gets more than cold enough
Love this fridge, it looks amazing and has heaps of room for everything I'd want to put in it. We were worried that it would be a bit noisy but the compressor is very hushed and suits our open kitchen plan well.
The interior cooled to 3C on the middle setting, so we turned it down a bit as we don't need it quite that cold.
Great looking and well built bar fridge
We purchased this retro style bar fridge for our garage as a second flow over refrigerator. One of the features we liked was that it did not contain an internal freezer draw therefore had more internal space than alot of the others. It was not cheap at over $800 for 110 L capacity but when we unpacked it, we saw that it was very meticulously packaged with lots of protection. It runs very quiet and has high energy rating for this size of unit. It looks great and has good interior space.
We have had it running now for over 6 months and are very happy with the purchase.
