This Sanyo compact fridge is quite popular and appears to do a good job of keeping things cool. Half the reviewers gave it a 5 rating with 20% giving it a rating of 4. So 70% of users are happy with the Sanyo compact fridge.
Like the other Sanyo reviewed people liked the design or “look” of this Sanyo compact refrigerator because it is simple and functional. Features like the recessed door handle, the reversible doors and the flush back meant it was easy to place in areas where space was limiting.
Users liked the storage options available because with limited space it is important to try and use most of the 2.4 cubic feet of this Sanyo compact refrigerator. So with both shelves removable it increases storage flexibility. Some people would have liked a bigger freezer but realized the fridge space in this size refrigerator is more important. In a similar way some people thought that the can dispenser in the door was a bit unnecessary because if you didn’t drink much soda it was a waste of space..
The Sanyo compact refrigerator seems to do its job well, that is, keeping food cold – there were no comments to the contrary about this, although with the freezer in the fridge area you have to be careful not to put some items like fruit to close or they can get freezer burnt. So food items like this are best stored lower down the fridge.
According to Energy Guide the Sanyo counter high refrigerator uses about $33 per year.
By the way – the plastic coating on the front to protect the stainless steel, still allows you to hang stuff with your magnet!
We recommend the Sanyo SR-A2480M compact Refrigerator at Position 4. It is a mini fridge but still does what any refrigerator is designed to do – keep things cool
