Best Outdoor Compact Refrigerators

  • Which Outdoor Compact Refrigerator is Right for You?

    You want your outdoor kitchen to be, well, a kitchen, right? That means recreating all the amenities and comforts of an indoor kitchen, just in an outdoor setting. You’ve got the grill of your dreams, doors and drawers for days, and a sink to clean up after those all-day BBQs. The only thing you need to really make this a kitchen is a refrigerator. But it’s not enough to just stick an old indoor unit into your grill island and call it a day — unless you like your food spoiling after just a few days on the job, that is. No, you’ll need an outdoor-rated refrigerator built to withstand the elements and temperature swings, and we know that not just any model will do for your ideal outdoor paradise. That’s why our experts put together this list of the best outdoor compact refrigerators.

    But how do we sort the best from the just-OK? Aside from checking for an outdoor rating, our experts — who’ve spent more than 20 years testing and selling outdoor living products of all kinds — looked at quality, performance, and features above all else. Those 3 factors combine to create a product’s value, and we know how much you love a good value!
