The Best Beverage Cooler for the Money

|

There's a reason the Danby 120 Can Beverage Center has consistently been a top seller on Amazon and other online retailers, but don't look now: is there's a new king in town?

It's something we all struggle to find these days: the perfect combination of price and quality. When shopping for a new beverage refrigerator, you need great drink capacity, quality materials, and high dependability. While there are several high-end fridges that would meet those criteria, you want it all within your budget. Challenge accepted!

We've taken a look at the reviews and ratings of the top-selling drink coolers out there and come up with our list of Best Beverage Coolers for the Money. When putting our recommendations together, we took careful consideration of price, outer dimensions, inner capacity, power consumption, and overall user rating at Amazon. Here what we've found!

The contender. As I write this, the hOmeLabs 120 Can Beverage Refrigerator and Cooler is the best selling beverage center on Amazon. And it is a great little workhorse.

Our takeaway: The hOmeLabs 120 has some great features, such as a reversible door, powerful cooling system, and incredibly quiet. However, we didn't like that the LED light is fairly dim (and not automatic when you open the door) and that the shelves just don't feel very sturdy. It's so close to being a contender for our top spot that we hope they hone some of these features in later updates.

Long live the king. While hOmeLabs has really come on strong, it hasn't done enough to unseat the Danby 120 Can Beverage Center from its throne. With comparable features but a lower price point, it's hard to find a reason not to love this cooler.

Our takeaway: It's cheaper...but not cheaply made. The Danby just feels sturdy

DANBY - A NAME YOU CAN TRUST

The dark horse. Don't look now, but is there a new challenger on the horizon? While it may be a little early to say whether the new kid on the block has staying power, the NewAir Beverage Cooler has recently positioned itself as the #2 seller on Amazon...right between the Danby and hOmeLabs models featured above. We'll take a closer look at the NewAir fridge soon, but it surprised us with its first impressions. Not only does it hold slightly more (around 126 cans) but it also cools to a chilling 34 degrees...lower than the competitors. We think you should take a serious look at the NewAir...and you may even see it topping this list in the near future.
