Pros & Cons:

The device fulfills all the basic requirements of keeping the food fresh and beverages cold. The unit is cost effective and economical in the long run. The top mounted separate icemaker chamber can freeze 2 sets of ice cube trays in a go. The freezer can also be used for short-term storage of some commercially frozen foods. The thermostat control dial located at the upper right hand corner of the interior compartment has settings 1 to 6 plus 0. Though the setting of 4 should be appropriate for home or office use, the temperature settings can be changed depending on the needs. The only hitch is that the device does not defrost on its own, periodic manual defrosting of the device is essential to avoid heavy frost build up that can affect the efficiency of this mini fridge.
