This compact refrigerator from WINIA is a good quality, yet affordable option that’s most suitable for small apartments and tight spaces.

Here’s why it’s our number 5 pick. For those who are single or just need the basics, the WINIA will give you 4.4 cubic feet of space in a frame measuring approximately 23 by 19 by 36 inches at a light weight of about 61 lbs., which makes moving it around a breeze.

The unit is also efficient, with energy star certification and an LED-lit interior to save on power.

It features multiple sections which are labeled the “multi-keeper” with enclosed storage on the door, the “fresh-keeper” for fruits and vegetables, and the “cooling-keeper” for the items you’d like to keep as cold as possible. The main compartment includes an adjustable glass shelf as well. As you can see, this little fridge can accommodate a little bit of everything.

Not to mention that we love the attractive retro design which comes in 5 colors.

One of the downsides is that while the cooling-keeper keeps items colder than the fridge, and although it can make ice, it is not a freezer.

When considering features, quality, and value, we give the WINIA Retro Compact Refrigerator an 8, out of 10.

What we like about this option is the fact that it’s a 2-door fridge & freezer combo that is available in both 7.5 and 10 cubic ft. models so you can choose the size that works best for you.

It’s also relatively lightweight at under 80 lbs. for the 7.5 cubic foot model.

This retro-style fridge has good features and value that makes it great for apartments, dorms, and small kitchens. It also has the essentials covered with a built-in light, temperature setting, and movable shelves. Both the refrigerator and freezer work well and the unit runs quiet.

It’s eye-catching as well, with a retro-style design that you can get in 3 different colors.

The cons are that there is no door storage in a freezer.

Overall, we give the RCA RFR1055 an 8, out of 10

The Frigidaire EFR751 has a total capacity of 7.2 square feet and measures 21.45 by 21.5 by 55.5 inches, with a weight of about 90 lbs. We love this fridge & freezer combo and its classic stainless-steel design. If you’re looking for an apartment fridge with a clean, classic style and traditional functionality, this could be the perfect option for you. 3 adjustable shelves, a crisper area, and staggered shelves on the door all help you make use of the most space possible. Most importantly, both the fridge and freezer sections perform very well.

The downside is that at about 90 pounds, moving this fridge is likely a 2-person job.

All things considered; we give this apartment fridge a score of 9, out of 10.

Another fridge freezer combo, this offering by Avanti features a glossy platinum and black finish that gives it a sleek and modern look. It measures about 56 by 21.5 by 23 inches and has a 7.4 cubic foot interior. One highlight of this option is versatility, with fully adjustable and removable glass shelves that let you re-arrange the space according to your needs.

It’s also nice that it is Energy star rated, CFC free, and ADA complaint.

Not to mention, this apartment size fridge can even hold 2-liter bottles.

The con is that this is another heavier item at just under 100 pounds, so again, you might need to ask a friend to help you get it into your kitchen.

We give the Avanti Apartment Size Refrigerator a rating of 9 out of 10.

Our number 1 pick, the Galanz GLR10TBKEFR impresses on multiple levels. First, this fridge freezer combo is the largest option on our list with dimensions of 23.74 by 27.48 by 61.81 inches and a capacity of 10 cubic feet.

Not only is this a beautiful retro-styled unit, it has a crisper, some handy door storage with can holders, and 4 adjustable glass shelves which makes it very versatile.

It’s also Climate Pledge Friendly with a power consumption of 292 kilowatt hours per year and it’s available in 4 colors.

The downside is again, the weight of the appliance at about 125 pounds, which can be an important consideration when it comes to moving an appliance into an apartment. Luckily, the Galanz also has this model available in sizes ranging from 7.4 to 12 cubic feet.

An excellent choice all-around, the Galanz True Top Fridge/Freezer has quality, features, value, and scores our top rating of 9.5, out of 10.
