  • Mini Fridges

    Hi,
    I just bought a mini fridge for the worktop to keep the milk and butter cool, and maybe a bit of meat.
    My main fridge has packed up, and the seal has gone, hence the reason for buying this mini fridge to get by with. I was wondering if it is save to leave it on all day, and overnight, and are they economical to run.? Ah dinnae want a big electricity bill.

    Thanks for welcome advice.

    Usually the larger the fridge - the more power it takes to keep it cooler.

    Other factors are to be considered too like;
    - is your home very hot? Fridges in hotter countries work harder to stay cold and cost more to run.
    - A huge factor on how efficient a fridge saves energy depends how often you open it and how long it is open. This is why we will see alot more fridges with glass fronts in the future (no need to open it, just look through the glass!)

    A mini fridge can be plugging in all night and is relativley low on running costs

    Hope this helped

      I think Bonnieboots will have found out how efficient it is for her/his need in the 13 months since they posted

        Maybe!!??? Maybe not!!?? Better and answer later than never I always say.

        And btw: unless Bonnieboots has a seperate meter just for her mini fridge than she probably didn't know how efficient it was before my answer..... smarty!

          I would definately think that after 13 months Bonnyboots WILL know how much electricity is used

          To come out with this comment Lockey seems like someone is else is trying to be a 'smarty'!!

            Actually, your answer says absolutely nothing about how efficient her fridge is - it just lists factors which affect efficiency.

              Thanks all for fathoming my problem with that mini fridge, I just bought it temporarily, because the main fridge was out of use.
              As it happens, you are all correct, it really was low cost energy, but I couldn't get much in it. As it now happens, I have given it away as it was cluttering up my kitchen work space.
              Sorry for giving such a conundrum.

              Cheers dears!
