EdgeStar CBR1501SLD 5 : Great little fridge!

Wanted an undercounter refrigerator the size of a standard dishwasher. I was worried if 38 degrees was cold enough, but no complaints. At one point, i opened the door and i captured this pic. The setting is at 38 degrees, but read 35 degrees.

Works well, seems reliable — but have only had it for 2 months. The light inside is a sci-fi blue. Which may not appeal to some; i don’t mind it. The drawers have holes in them for even distribution of cold throughout. We use it for more than just beverages – in addition to milk for our espresso machine, we use it for fruit, and occasional things that won’t fit in our main fridge. The venting on the bottom of the unit makes it suitable for positioning under a cabinet. The only drawback to this is that the unit tends to be a bit noisier than i expected. Not huge noise, but more noticeable than i anticipated.

Nice unite—hoping it lasts for a long-long time.

Unbelievable capacity even with one shelf removed to accommodate long neck bottles. Does a good job keeping beer cold in the outdoor setting here in arizona.

  • Pretty good even with minor quibbles
  • Pricey but well worth it!
  • Nice and quiet. Love it!

I first bought a u-line model that costs twice as much, couldn’t stand the noisy fan, returned it and ordered the edgestar. It looks nice and works well to keep the temp cold. Our previous one was made by avanti, very nice looking, perfect fit for built-in, but broke down after less than 3 years. Only improvement i would recommend for edgestar is to make the door less bulky so it would fit flush in a 24″ built-in under the counter space and doesn’t have to stick out in order to avoid touching the flanking cabinet door.

This is good for beer cooler with moveable shelves, but top curve of refrigerator limits the cans that can be put on top shelf.

It’s a great deal on a quality product.

Aside from the back corner getting crushes as result of a drop. Likely during shipping, this is a great product. Fortunately, the leveling feet could be able adjusted to compensate for the damage and it is hidden in a built in space. Otherwise, it would have a 5th star if the door could close easier. Maybe have a stronger magnet.

Background: there are plenty of comments on the products specs, and suffice to say it is an attractive stainless-steel front under-the-counter refrigerator, with a blue led light inside and a constant digital temp reading. So, the only other factor i cared about related to temperature. Temperature test: for the last two weeks i ran tests, recording temperature variances. I first put in a case of soda cans to simulate how i’d use it and to help maintain the temperature. What i found was the temperature deviated between 33 and 42 degrees. I checked it with a digital thermometer to verify the readings. The unit i set at its lowest setting, 38 degrees, and recorded a variance of 4-5 degrees in either direction. This all makes sense and i’m not surprised – that is how refrigerators work. Compressor run time: the best way to mitigate temperature variance is to run the compressor more. Yet that is what bothered a number of reviewers writing about this refrigerator.

Bought this for my husbands game room to replace smaller refrigerator with ice tray freezer. He loves the fact there is no defrosting and has more room for beverages and has a nice door handle.

Placed it in our new basement.

6 month review and it has worked like a charm in our 4 seasons room keeps beverages cold and nice sleek look.

Better than one bit replaced and it cost three times more than this one.

Such a large and heavy item, it was delivered by appointment by fedex. Was well packaged on a pallet. Quite and keeps the beverages cold.

Works great, holds temp well.

Proper size for the proper price tag and it retains beer colder than our viking frig.

No frills, but it retains my beer chilly.

I hesitated for six months prior to finding this fridge due to the fact of the price tag. It was the only one particular with very good opinions so i considered it was really worth receiving it. It came properly packaged and the delivery guy brought it all the way into my garage. The fridge is very major and reliable looking. The temperature is keeping continual and it can maintain a ton. It seems fantastic and i like the blue mild.

Pretty happy with this order. It is even much better than described. Straightforward to alter doorway opening from 1 aspect to the other.

Nice shelving that can be altered. Plenty of home and fairly priced as opposed to other goods.

We acquired this edge star for underneath a counter,in our laundry area. I had to reverse the doorway which was alittle tough but with some persistence it came together properly. The only draw back again to this device is you need to effectively near the doorway soon after opening it, the door will not swing shut on its very own. The device does have a alarm that will audio if the doorway is not shut effectively. I really endorse the device it is significant responsibility and it has a qualified constructed visual appeal.
