I've been through a couple of mini combo's and am here for the same reason as you: 1) The mini fridge super mini freezer section sucks. The thing on top/bottom stays half frozen, but HagenDaaz melts. And after a while, it's iced completely and the milk seems suspicious warm. So you have to defrost it. Are you going to move the whole thing out where it can defrost properly and toss the other stuff? No, you are not. You are going to give it twenty minutes, get impatient as it drips and you think of wasting a Saturday on this and then you get the butter knife. A few blows later, and you're thinking "Last time was a fluke, this time I'm doing it right!" You are thrilled with the great big chunks of ice coming out, that you will NOT have to wait on and the Saturday afternoon that seems wide open with possibilities. Then you hit it again.....
Hssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss goes that familiar sound. Now you are on Amazon looking at this review, perhaps after googling what an all refrigerator was. Just get this. If you want gallons of ice cream or costco runs, get a tiny over the counter freezer, or a chest freezer (or a matching/similar undercounter like this in all freezer version) and be done with it.
Now, can this be built as an undercounter model, with almost no clearance? Yes, yes it can... but it will die. The heat needs to go somewhere hence the 4" clearance in docs. But... give it an inch of clearance on all side, wind tunnel style, and DIY it up with a fan (computer fans work well, are quiet and low energy). Build it right and you'll be swapping the fan out in a few months/years instead of the cooked compressor.
It's about 34" in the front, 33" in the back for you counter inch counters - slight bevel.
I'll update this if it dies before March.
I received not a penny's discount in exchange for my fair and honest review, so how about a helpful clicky click?
The top shelf holds two 64oz growlers, plus sixteen or so 12oz bottles, or a few 22oz ones. The bottom shelf doesn't hold bottles, but takes eighteen or more 16oz cans.
The rear half of the middle shelf, slightly annoyingly, sits a bit high and won't accept most 12oz bottles without a bit of force. The front half of it, though, is perfect for 12oz bottles and holds fourteen or so of them. A few more can be wedged in the back if necessary, or some shorter bottles or more cans can be put back there. And of course the door is good for at least 8 cans, plus some 12 or 22oz bottles as well.
More importantly, at its lowest (least cool) setting, the fridge maintains a perfect temperature of 45-50 degrees throughout, without the use of any external regulators. In light of that, as well as the sub-$200 price, I would not hesitate to recommend this fridge to anyone looking to keep some beer.
That said, the first couple of days I used it I noticed that the first couple of drinks I pulled out of it were extremely cold, but that others were quite warm. I initially installed a refrigerator thermometer on the top shelf, and noticed that it was hovering around the mid 40s - not even safe for food.
Thinking I had a defective unit, I started packing it up to return it when I noticed that two of the cans near the back on the middle shelf were light, they had frozen and burst.
To do a more complete temperature test I left small bowls of water on each shelf overnight, and then tested the temperature of each with a Thermapen. This is all on the highest cold setting.
Top shelf was 44.
Middle shelf was 38.
Lower shelf was 32 (ice formed on the water near the back of this shelf)
Drawer was 40
Middle of door was 41
It also seems to be pretty inconsistent. The temperature will drop quite a bit before the compressor will switch on for too long, and freeze items on the lower shelf. I'm going to run some more tests to check the temperature over a long period of time.
Edit: I rigged up a small fan (https://www.amazon.com/AC-Infinity-MULTIFAN-Receiver-Playstation/dp/B00G05A2MU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1467222711&sr=8-1&keywords=ac+infinity) at the back of the bottom shelf to circulate the air. This has kept the entire fridge around 35 degrees, and stopped the freezing near the back of the fridge. It seems like this should be a built in feature considering the poor temperature circulation of the fridge.
The compartments are great, it has curves on the door shelfs so you can stick things in like cartons of milk or juice containers. The shelves are sturdy and I've got one shelf holding a 24-pack of water bottles without any problems. So far this has been a great fridge for us. I've included a picture that shows you how tall it is, when I was shopping I had no idea how tall it'd turn out.
