    We keep this in our kitchen and put all our cans in it. It looks cool and it is nice to not have to go to the big fridge for everything. The back corner of the fridgewas damaged inside the package at some point during the delivery. It's not visible from where we put it so we didn't return it.

    Could have been great...but for its width

    Given that the aluminum can is, and has been, a pretty standard size for decades, you would think this refrigerator would be designed for them. Nope. As other reviewers have noted, it is roughly 1" too narrow inside to hold a 6-pack of sodas width-wise. So far the temperature control has been good. My only other suggestion for its improvement would be feet that have 'grip' so it doesn't slide all over the place when opening and closing the door.

    Brought this home and followed instructions for start up. Keeps can cold. Haven't actually checked if it's keeping it at the set temperature though. Good enough for me. Like others, it seems silly not to have the interior just millimeters wider to accomodate 6 cans laying flat. Biggest complaint is that the middle back makes the cans so cold that it caused on to explode. This effectively reduces the ability to store any cans near this area for fear of this occurring. Overall I am happy with it given the price. I've freed up lots of space previously used by cans in my regular refrigerator. Looks good too

    Loved this little cooler so much that we bought a 2nd one. Did not buy the extended warranty as it seems a simple item and inexpensive. After the manufacturers warranty expired by a few months...on of these has gone bad. Fluctuations in temp, make everything freeze and explode inside the fridge. Which shoots the door open and leaves a remarkable mess! As warranty had recently expired. I emptied it, turned it off for 48 hours and plugged it back in. Seemed to do the trick. Today (4 weeks later) I hear a large bang...and it'd happened again. Called manufacturer for help...got none.

    We purchased this after having a bad experience with one we bought elsewhere that had a terrible toxic smell that would not go away and got into the water bottles and on the cans. After we spent three months trying to make the smell go away, we exchanged for another one and that one also had the smell. We gave up and decided to try this one. This fridge is great and is much nicer than the one we had previously. First off, no bad smell!! It also cools much faster and keeps temperature very even from top to bottom, which the other one did not do (this one has a small fan that circulates the air and keeps the coil defrosted - a huge plus!! @@@@@@@ It runs very quiet and looks great. No complaints on operation or appearance. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5; The interior width is just slightly too narrow to allow 6 cans across (maybe 1/2 inch-1 inch short at most). This is annoying since it is designed as a beverage cooler, why make it way too wide for 5 cans but not quite enough for 6? Theoretically you can get 6 cans across if you stagger them, but then that makes them difficult to remove. The problem is that the supports for the shelves stick out a bit from the sides. In the bottom section that has no shelf supports in the way you can get 6 cans across (or same if you lay the cans on their side on any shelf, but that greatly reduces the total it can hold). So they say it can hold 114 cans; I can't get anywhere close to that number and would love for someone at Insignia to explain how that is possible. Bottom section can hold 12, and each of the remaining three shelves could hold 24 at most (4 deep and 6 across) which is 84, but you also have to account for the fan on the top shelf, which will eliminate at least another 3, so 81 maybe at most. If you want nice rows so people can actually get the cans out without knocking others onto the floor, you can get 20 per shelf (-3 on the top shelf), plus 12 at the bottom, total of 69 at most. We ended up putting bottled water on the top shelf which does allow us to get 6 across and 4 deep, except the two middle rows are 3 deep because of the fan (22 total), and cans on the remaining two shelves and bottom, so overall it still works fine for us, but nowhere near the stated capacity. That part is disappointing, but fridge works so well we will live with this shortcoming, just seems like something that could have so easily been addressed with a little thought.
