If you just started your search for a beverage refrigerator you’re probably reading lots of reviews to help with your decision. How cold does it get? Is it noisy? Will it last a long time? We encourage customers to write reviews because we understand what a helpful tool it can be when making a purchase. So we’ve compiled a list of the top customer rated beverage refrigerators:
1. EdgeStar 148 Can Stainless Steel Beverage Cooler – Black and Stainless Steel
The EdgeStar Stainless Steel Beverage Cooler is a large capacity unit that can hold an impressive 148 cans. The built in unit contains an internal fan to circulate the cold air and three (3) glass shelves with holes to allow the cold air to be evenly distributed.
After my kitchen remodeling project was near completion I purchased a built-in Vissani beverage cooler from Home Depot. I was disappointed to find that the unit was a fraction of an inch too tall to fit under the counter. After returning it, I found the Edgestar CBR1501SG on the internet. It was the height needed. It has almost the same dimensions as the cooler at Home Depot but is 7/8″ shorter. Not only does the Edgestar fit in the standard size opening, the quality of construction is better. It is very quiet, holds its temperature, and serves as a good night light, too. I am very happy with this purchase.”
2. Danby 5.4 Cu. Ft. Built-In Energy Star Refrigerator
The Danby 5.4 Cu. Ft. Built-In Beverage Refrigerator is Energy Star rated, not only does it look and function great but it can help save money on your energy bills.
The spacious interior has three (3) white trimmed frosted glass shelves as well as 2 liter bottle storage. A special feature of this unit is the audible alarm which sounds if there is a dramatic change in temperature.
“Very nice unit, much higher quality than the 4.3 cu ft unit the builder wanted to install, well worth the extra price over the smaller unit.”
3. EdgeStar 80 Can Built-In Beverage Cooler – Black/Stainless Steel
The EdgeStar 80 Can Built-In Beverage Cooler has a 15” slim width that fits in almost any space. This versatile unit has an internal fan which helps circulate the cold air and includes a security lock, digital temperature display, and LED interior lights.
“We needed something narrow to fit an existing space and this was the best value we could find. It exceeded expectations. So far it is working great.”

“This is a really nice looking unit and it works well. It comes with so many shelves that there are tremendous options for how you use the interior.”
5. EdgeStar 84 Can Outdoor Beverage Refrigerator – Stainless Steel with Glass Door
The Edgestar Outdoor Beverage Refrigerator is made of stainless steel and triple pane glass which helps keep the internal temperature consistent in any climate. An LCD screen displays the current temperature which can be adjusted in 1 degree increments. This durable outdoor beverage refrigerator can be used as a built in or freestanding unit.
“The refrigerator is excellent, and very quiet. I previously purchased the [fridge] that had the indoor/outdoor option and it was so loud that I had to disconnect it and send it back. I am very satisfied with the appearance and the fact that it is very quiet. I put in a brand new kitchen and installed the [fridge] in the center island. It looks fantastic and goes very well with all of my other high-end stainless steel appliances. I would highly recommend this.”
6. EdgeStar 103 Can and 5 Bottle Extreme Cool Beverage Cooler – Stainless Steel
The EdgeStar 103 Can and 5 Bottle Extreme Cool Beverage Cooler comes with six (6) adjustable chrome flat wire shelves and one (1) scalloped bottle shelf. This freestanding unit adds convenience and luxury to any living space.
“We were considering a commercial beverage cooler, and came across this one and thought we would try it. So far this is a great cooler, doesn’t take up a lot of space and holds lots of beverages, (by beverages I mean beer)!! We have a lot of company and usually have coolers with ice, but NO MORE hassles with going to the store, buying ice, dumping the water out. Loving it.”
7. Danby 120 Can Beverage Cooler w/ Lock – Black and Stainless Steel
The Danby 120 can beverage cooler holds an astounding 120 cans featuring three (3) full size wire shelves and one (1) half width wire shelf. A sleek exterior with black cabinet, stainless steel trim, and glass door makes this freestanding unit stylish and functional.
“I did a lot of research before I purchased a beverage center for my bar that I built in my basement. I have a kegerator down there, so I don’t need a ton of fridge space, however, I still need some. This unit received the best reviews compared to the other models that I was looking at. I’ve had it for 3 – 4 weeks now and would definitely recommend this beverage center. The unit looks great with its clear glass front and stainless steel trim. The storage space is ample, the fridge keeps everything cold and the light functionality definitely adds to the look/appeal. The light can always stay on or it can only come on when the door is opened… pretty nice looking. The noise level is also not an issue… overall it’s pretty quiet. I have it turned up just past the halfway point for the temp… not quite 3/4 and my beverages are always cold and the beverage center is basically quiet. I love this thing and have received plenty of compliments so far. Living Direct shipped this product out the same day (Monday) that I ordered it, and I received it on a Thursday. Couldn’t ask for anything more.”
