A bar fridge is a smaller sized refrigerator designed to hold drinks. People often like to deliberate over whether they should buy a bar fridge since it means purchasing a refrigerator in addition to the main home fridge and the related expense should be justified. Bar fridges, while convenient, are also accompanied by some disadvantages. Make a balanced choice by weighing the pros and cons of bar fridges.
Convenience Having a well-chilled beverage of your choice can do away with the need for fetching it from the kitchen. People tend to spend long hours at their work-place and need refreshment breaks ever so often. A bar-fridge kept in the office can provide drinks without requiring you to leave the workplace for refreshments. When watching a big game at home, a beer fridge at hand ensures that you don't miss any action on television. Bar fridges are particularly appreciated by people who enjoy entertaining. Equipping the home bar with a bar fridge means that the host doesn't have to disappear into the kitchen every time drinks need to be served. Handy size Bar fridges have a small size with a height of about 800mm. This is designed in such a way that the fridge can be neatly tucked under a counter and does not take up additional floor space. Easy relocation Bar fridges are portable due to their handy size. This optimises their versatility. You can relocate the fridge from the bar to the family room, when there is a big game or even plug it to an electrical point in the patio or an outdoor room when holding a barbecue. Features Freezer section of bar fridges may not be very large but will suffice as ice coolers. This helps when one is entertaining. Glass bar doors can display contents.
Limited temperature range Bar fridges are suitable as beer coolers for drinks which require cooler temperature. However, wines should not be chilled at such low temperature and the bar fridge may not suffice as a drinks fridge. Storage capacity The storage capacity of a bar fridge is compromised for the sake of its handy size and portability. The fridge may not be completely independent and will need back-up from the kitchen fridge. Shelf placement Shelves offer limited flexibility in holding a range of items which could be beer supplies, cans, bottles, mixes or oversized bottles. Choosing models with removable shelves improves flexibility. Expense Bar fridges not only mean an initial expense on purchase but also a running expense in operation. This should be justified with the benefits that it is expected to provide. To enjoy the convenience of a bar fridge, ensure that it suits your lifestyle and budget.
