The Best Undercounter Beverage Refrigerators

The Best Undercounter Beverage Refrigerators by THOR Kitchen

Undercounter beverage refrigerators are a sleek and efficient way to store drinks. Designed to fit seamlessly into kitchen cabinetry, they save space while providing easy access to various beverages. With precise temperature controls, these refrigerators cater to different drink types, from sodas to wines, ensuring each is perfectly chilled. Their stylish appearance also adds a touch of modern elegance to any kitchen.

Traditional refrigerators often lack specific spaces for beverage storage, leading to cluttered shelves and inconsistent cooling for drinks.

This makes it challenging to organize and access beverages easily and can result in uneven chilling, affecting the taste and quality of drinks, especially wines and craft beers.

Undercounter beverage refrigerators offer a specialized solution, providing dedicated space with optimal temperature control for various beverages. This ensures drinks are perfectly chilled and readily accessible, enhancing both convenience and the overall drinking experience.

This article explores the benefits of undercounter beverage refrigerators and shares two of THOR Kitchen’s newest undercounter refrigerators that will keep your beverages chill.

Benefits of Undercounter Beverage Refrigerators

There are many benefits to owning an undercounter beverage cooler in your home. After all, we discussed one of the most significant — finding a drink easily when you want one! There are many other perks of making this investment, too. Let’s take a quick look. 

Versatility. You can use your beverage refrigerator any way you wish. If you never have an issue finding drinks in your fridge, you may not need it to clear up space. Perhaps it would be a great place to store your wine, beer, and/or liquor. 

Install anywhere. These refrigerators are designed to be installed under the counter but are not required to go under your kitchen counter. You can install it in your den, garage, man cave, she-shed, outdoor kitchen, office, or anywhere else you’d like the convenience. 

Cold drinks. You can control the temperature on the beverage refrigerator to keep your liquids as chilled as you’d like. Because they are in their own contained unit, this temperature will not impact any foods in the fridge. You can always count on a cold one when you want it. 

Easy entertaining. When you are entertaining, it can be frustrating to have your guests going in and out of your kitchen refrigerator when they want a drink. Use the beverage cooler in your entertaining area to make getting a refill easy — and keep your guests where the party is. 

Extra space. As mentioned, getting the beverages out of your main fridge frees up space. This makes it so much easier to keep it organized. Besides, who doesn’t love additional space? 

Choosing Your THOR Kitchen Undercounter Beverage Cooler

Because you want to get the most out of your undercounter beverage refrigerator, you need to know that there is more than one amazing option. You have to consider a couple of things before choosing the right one for your space, such as these factors —- 

  • Where will you install the unit? 
  • Does the space allow the door to open easier one way over the other? 

To help you decide, here is a closer look at two stainless steel undercounter beverage coolers that will change your life. They are THOR Kitchen model numbers TBR24U and TBR24U-LH. Both come with all the features you want in a fridge designed just for your drinks — without anything you don’t want.

The only difference between the two models is the way the door opens and the handle placement. Remember, your undercounter beverage refrigerator is meant to bring convenience into your life, so giving you options for the perfect fit is necessary. 

Beverage Refrigerator Features

Can we let you in on a little secret? You get more than the perfect fit when you invest in a THOR Kitchen beverage cooler.

Features are all of those things that make owning a specific appliance a great experience. And these undercounter beverage coolers are no exception. They may be small, but they pack a punch regarding the value they add. (They also hold all the ingredients for your punch, too).

Precise Temperature Control. When storing beverages, you want them to be chilled just right. With the convenience of a digital LED display,  you can easily control the temperature between 37 – 64°F. The fridge will maintain this temperature. 

Storage Capacity. Don’t let the undercounter size fool you — this 5.3 cubic foot unit can hold up to 140 12-ounce cans. 

LED Interior. An LED interior backlight allows you to see clearly throughout the unit. This makes it easy to find what you are looking for, keep it clean, and ensure optimal usage. 

Triple Pane Glass. The use of double-glazed, triple-pane glass with low e-coating reduces heat transmission. This means that the temperature inside can be easily maintained regardless of the temperature outside the refrigerator.

Cooling System. An auto-defrost cooling system with a fan keeps the cold air flowing throughout so the temperature remains the same. 

Quiet Operation. You don’t have to worry about talking over your beverage cooler during a party — it’s super quiet at 42 dB. 

Zero-Clearance Hinges. You want a flush, seamless fit when you install your refrigerator under the counter. Zero-clearance hinges make this possible. 

Adjustable Racks. Moving your racks gives you a place to store all types of beverages. 

Security Lock. Keep out the kiddos (or whoever you want) with a security lock. This is perfect when storing adult beverages. 

And, finally, because no one likes a warm beverage, the door alarm will notify you when it has been left open.
