Don’t we all love to spoil our children and give them the best in life? Our teenage son, Mr K, is like most teenage kids these days. They all want to own an ultimate teenage gaming den filled with gaming consoles, flatscreen monitors, gaming keyboards and mice and lit with LED lights etc.
We also all know that it is so important for them to take plenty of mini-breaks and keep hydrated as they can easily forget to do so. Hence this Kuhla game zone 43-litre table top fridge came to the rescue! With this fun fridge kitted out on his table, it will not only provide quick and easy access to drinks, but it also looks really smart in his gaming room.
Kuhla has a great range of mini-fridges that are cube-style, lighter in weight, and most importantly, have printed design fronts that will look great in any room. I have picked the game zone design on the door, which blends into Mr K’s gaming room. The design print is a matt surface which means fingerprints cannot be seen on the door, which is a nice design feature. The fridge has black coloured sides and a white interior.
This fridge is compact and can fit in most places and be moved anywhere with little effort by one person. It’s 49.2cm in height by 47.2cm in width and 45cm in depth. I moved the fridge a couple of times until I was finally happy with its location. I then have to wait for three hours before I can plug the fridge into a mains socket.
Despite its small size, it boasts an impressive large capacity of 43 litres that can accommodate 42 x 330ml sized cans of drink (according to the manufacturer). It has one full-depth shelf and one half-depth shelf. The wire shelf is removable to accommodate bigger food items or bottles. The door has two balcony shelves. On one of the balcony shelves, the adjustable wire rail provides additional storage for various sizes of cans and bottles.
The door is reversible, but I didn’t try to reverse it so I don’t know how easy or difficult it is, but you will require a few tools like a Philip head screwdriver, flat-headed screwdriver and hexagonal spanner to remove the attachments.
It has a small icebox in the top right-hand corner and comes with an ice-cube tray and drip tray for manual defrosting. I use the drip tray to store his favourite chocolate bars as he loves it cold.
Next to the icebox is the six-point thermostat. According to the instructions, it is best to set it on setting 2. The highest setting should only be used as a rapid cool setting and should only be set two hours before a large amount of food is placed in the fridge. Then put it back to setting 2. At the moment, we are using the fridge to store cans of drinks and chocolate bars. Setting 2 is an ideal temperature for our drinks and chocolate. They are all nicely chilled.
It produces around 41dB of noise, which is not too loud, but it could be irritating if this is in a bedroom. It has an F energy rating or 100 kWh/annum.
This fridge is brilliant for keeping your drinks and snacks chilled during the summer months. You do not have to be a gamer to own a mini-fridge because Kuhla offers a lot of highly decorative door designs for any environment. It is a fun, well-made fridge. It is available from https://www.kuhla.co.uk/, Amazon, Currys, Robert Dyas and more!
