What Are Undercounter Refrigerators?

Undercounter refrigerators are designed to fit under your kitchen counters and between cabinets. You might choose an undercounter fridge to increase your counter space if you have a smaller kitchen. However, you would need to select a unit with a freezer if you intend to replace a full-sized fridge with a more compact counterpart. These are not to be confused with a mini fridge, a cheaper, lower-quality version meant to stand alone.

Undercounter fridges are frequently used to provide additional storage space in a kitchen or outdoor cooking space. They could be installed in a kitchen, office, dorm room, recreation room, and even your living room. Some people may choose to have an undercounter fridge for the convenience it offers in height so small children can access drinks and snacks on their own.

They are also ADA-compliant and can offer easy access for those in wheelchairs. Some like to purchase them purely for entertainment purposes to ensure guests always have ice-cold drinks at hand. Small to medium-sized collectors can use them as a wine cellar. Whatever your needs, you can find a fridge that will suit your requirements.

How Does an Undercounter Refrigerator Work?

Undercounter refrigerators are more expensive than regular upright refrigerators but are more durable and require less maintenance. Before you decide on the model you like, consider your options carefully according to your budget and needs.

Some undercounter refrigerators are meant to be independent, while others are supplemental. It is possible to replace your primary fridge with an undercounter one completely. Some models, such as the HCK, have freezers, ice makers, and refrigerators. More and more homeowners are choosing this clean look for the convenience and ease of function they can provide. Building the fridge into the countertop can eliminate the large bulky presence normally occupied by a full-sized fridge.

Many of even the most sturdy models offer an option to have the fridge as a stand-alone. If you want additional beverage storage and easy accessibility but don’t want to lose cabinet space, you could choose a freestanding model and keep it in a recreation room, office, or outdoor cooking area. One of the best aspects of the undercounter fridges is their incredible versatility and variable options.

Undercounter Refrigerator Buying Guide

Undercounter refrigerators include a fridge-only unit, freezers, ice makers, beer dispensers, beverage centers, and wine cellars. It’s important first to consider the purpose of your undercounter fridge, the location, and the budget.

If you want a fridge to keep your energy costs down and decrease your carbon footprint, look for a unit with Energy Star certification. The Department of Energy has enforced more stringent requirements to obtain Energy Star approval, so if your unit has this certification, you can be assured you are adhering to the top guidelines.

Storage Capacity

Storage capacity and flexibility of the undercounter refrigerators are essential features to evaluate. Think about how you will use the unit. Do you need space for large milk, juice, and soda containers? Will you store platters of food inside? Think whether you’ll store the wine upright and on the side and need a can dispenser in the door. Your fridge is only as good as its functionality, so be certain it will fit your needs.


The aesthetic appearance of your fridge is likely a great concern. Choose a model that suits the space where you’ll be using it. Also, make sure that it fits well in the space. Check the specs of your space against your desired unit to ensure you can easily install it and it will not jut out.

Cost and Warranty

Finally, cost and warranty are important. If you intend to replace a full-sized fridge with an undercounter refrigerator, invest in a more durable and versatile design. These are usually high-traffic appliances and should be the best quality you can afford. If the fridge is meant only for storing beverages and as a supplemental unit, your options may be more variable in price. Always seek to purchase an appliance with at least a 1-year warranty. For this reason, all of the 10 best selections chosen come with a 1-year warranty.

Tips To Install Undercounter Refrigerators

When planning the installation of your new undercounter refrigerator, here are some points you should consider:

  • Check some basic measurements to be sure of an easy transition. Most counters are 36’’ in height, including the countertop itself. Ensure the built-in unit fits under the countertop.
  • Some units can be installed freestanding and may align with the top of your counters. The 36-inch total generally accounts for 34 ½ inches under the counter and a 1 ½ inch thick countertop.
  • Freestanding units can also be installed as built-in. Remember to check if they have a vent on the front so they do not vent into your cabinetry. This can be a fire hazard.
  • Consider the location of your undercounter fridge. You should never place it next to a heat source like an oven. Your fridge will work hard to maintain cool temperatures if it has to compensate for a heat source. It will put undue strain on your fridge and increase your energy costs.
  • Plan the electrical source where you’ll plug the fridge. When planning your location, you should also consider where your outlets are and how to ensure the cable is concealed.
  • Think about the weight and the wheel foot type for undercounter refrigerators. Some fridges are relatively lightweight, weighing in at around 50 pounds. The higher quality and more durable designs will weigh 100 pounds or more. If it requires more than one person to lift and install the fridge effectively, make sure you plan for help.
  • Even the durable solid stainless steel models can dent if dropped or bumped during installation. Your warranty would not cover such damage and will need to be avoided.
  • The feet of the fridge can scratch your floors if they are dragged and shoved. Be cautious if you have wood floors to lift and maneuver the fridge. Felt pads would be a great idea to put under the wheels so the fridge is easier to slide into place and does not scratch your floors.
  • If your fridge is not a perfect size for your counters, ensure it has adjustable feet to be installed flush with the counter and not leave an unsightly gap.

Undercounter fridges offer incredible durability, style, and convenience. They can blend seamlessly into your kitchen or attract attention and divert traffic as a beverage fridge with a glass-paned door. These top ten choices will surely put you on the track to finding the perfect fit for you!
