Kuhla mini fridge KTTF4SSGB-1002 in a nutshell

Pros: fun design, easy-to-use thermostat
Cons: slightly noisy, price

Star rating: 4/5

The Kuhla is a cube-style mini fridge that has a playful bottle-top design on the door, making it a great addition to a student setting.

This also means fingerprints cannot be seen on the door, which may be a bonus for some. However, the integrated handle on the door does show marks. The fridge has an attractive soft grey-coloured side and back, and a white interior.

The Kuhla has a small icebox complete with an ice-cube tray and drip tray for manual defrosting. It has a slightly higher noise level than similar models, which could be irritating in a bedroom.

The six-point thermostat was easy to use, and and the temperature held steady through the week. We found that by setting the fridge to a middle-range temperature, the compressor came on less frequently without any detriment to the food stored inside. Everything kept well for seven days, including a salad, which only started to flag after five days.

With just 43 litres of internal space, the Kuhla is small. However, this can be maximised by removing the one wire shelf, allowing for larger drinks bottles or packages to be stored. The bottle rack in the door has an adjustable wire rail for storing larger bottles, and comfortably fit a four-litre milk carton.

The biggest surprise with the Kuhla is that it comes at a much higher price than similar models, and the only difference the Kuhla offers over these models is the highly decorative door. If the aesthetic floats your boat, you might reason it's worth paying the premium – it is a sturdy, well-made fridge that performs well, so it will be a good buy.
