Husky Coca-Cola mini fridge in a nutshell

Pros: fun design and solid functions
Cons: dark interior

Star rating: 4/5

This Husky cube-shaped mini fridge from will no doubt appeal to soda pop lovers, coming as it does emblazoned with the vibrant red Coca-Cola logo.

This colourful finish on the exterior meant that there were no smudgy fingerprints, and if there were, they couldn't be seen.

The handle recesses into the top of the door, so it's easy to use; not having an exterior handle adds to the unfussy, clean lines of this stylish fridge.

Looks aside, as a fridge the Husky functions well. We felt confident in the secure closing of the door to hold the internal temperatures securely. And it did. We regularly checked thermometers placed in the fridge, and it remained steady. All the contents were still fresh after a week even with repeated opening and closing.

There are 43 litres of fully useable space as there is no icebox, giving plenty of room for food and drink. Some may mourn the missing icebox for storing ice cubes, but the added space is advantageous if this fridge is going to be used for food as well as beverages.

A conventional refrigeration compressor system cools the Husky, so it has the familiar low humming noise when running. The sound was, however, intermittent and only when the compressor kicked. Even then, it was barely discernible and much less noticable than some of the other mini fridges we tested.

We were unsure about the black interior. The colour will undoubtedly appeal to some, but in the testing, it was hard to see inside. Plus, the darkness raised questions about the cleanliness of the walls and shelves as dirt is easier to see on a more traditional white interior.

The thermostat control is on the back of the fridge, which was awkward to reach. Also, this meant moving the refrigerator out each and every time an adjustment was needed. In a small room or tight space, this is cumbersome.

With the two small irks of the thermostat aside, this is probably not going to change anyone's mind about buying this if they have already fallen for the bold aesthetic, roomy interior and easy to clean exterior.
