When you’re looking for a super quiet mini fridge, there are a number to choose from on the market. You may be looking for an extremely quiet mini fridge because it is for a bedroom, office or for a dormitory. Whatever the reason may be, it’s important that you make the right choice 'overall' so that you are also gettting a good sound product too (pun intended).

In this article, we’ll look at five of the quietest mini fridges out there -- to help you choose which particular model best suits your particular requirements  & preferences with regards to size, design etc.

The Danby DAR195BL

This extremely quiet mini refrigerator is sleek and good looking. It is one of the quietest mini fridges on the market and some reviewers even state that it is actually pretty much next to silent in operation. However, the fact that it is quiet is not the only feature going for it. It is also practically sized whether for the office or the bedroom -- where it includes 1.8 cubic feet of storage space, which is around 51 litres. It can therefore house a decent quantity of food and drinks; more than many other competing models. On top of this it’s actually a very good performing fridge -- it does its job, keeping food cold, as attested to by many positive reviews.

You can adjust the temperature to your desired level as it has a thermostat integrated within it. Moreover, you can move the shelves about to get them to your liking (or remove them all completely to allow for even more space), and you can reverse the door so that it opens the other way to fit where you need it to fit. The fridge usually costs somewhere in the region of $130 to $150 and overall it offers incredibly good value as a low decibel small fridge.

The SPT Compact Refrigerator

This is perhaps one of the best looking silent mini fridges around. It has a stainless steel door which shines beautifully wherever it’s placed. The storage capacity is quite large at around 2.5 cubic feet. It is therefore perfect for most students who are looking for that bit more space for their consumables, and also for the office environment where there may be several people looking to leave their lunch and their drinks.

It is a fridge that fits nicely under a desk and is packed full of additional features as well as it being a pretty much silent mini fridge. As with several of the models on this list, it has a reversible door and storage shelf options that enable you to adapt the internals. The thermostat does a good job of helping you keep the fridge just the right temperature. This is another fantastic option for those who are looking for a quiet mini fridge that is on the larger side with regards to cost you will probably be looking around $145 to $170 depending on where you’re looking.

The Haier Compact Fridge/Freezer

This product costs a bit more than the previous two on this list at around $200. Haier is a well-known domestic goods brand, and this model, the HNSE032BB, is a very popular mini fridge within their range. It looks modern & stylish and is certainly on the larger side at 3.2 cubic feet. 

One bonus with this is that it has a freezer compartment. This makes it excellent for home use and for students who want to store their frozen food and not just the refrigerated foods. It’s a very good option at this price range and you won’t find many very low dB silent mini fridge & freezer options that can compete on the market.

The Danby Dual Door Compact Fridge

The DCR326BSL retails for somewhere upwards of $300 - certainly on the more expensive side of the mini fridge spectrum. It is a similar fridge to the DAR195BL mentioned at the start. It is a silent mini fridge with 3.1 cubic feet of capacity. Moreover, it is pretty sleek looing that will potentially add some style & fit in most rooms quite nicely, and of course the very low recorded noise level of the mini fridge means it is a great option for environments that are noise sensitive. With the separate freezer compartment, as well as the interior lighting system, it is a very nice option -- it really is just a complete mini refrigerator.

The ChillQuiet Mini Fridge

The ChillQuiet mini fridge has a 17-litre capacity. It’s excellent for table tops and it has enough space for quite a few drinks. It’s not big enough for heavy duty use but as an additional fridge it’s very good. It’s enough for students that just want to keep a couple of days of food. It is a low sound level compact fridge, meaning it’s great for those environments where you need to stay quiet. In addition, it has a low carbon footprint. It comes in at only around $110 so is one of the cheaper models on the market.

So there you have it, a look at five of the top super low noise compact fridges. Any of these will be a good choice. But for me, the top choice has to be the Danby DAR195BL. It is a convenient size; not too big and not too small. It is perhaps the quietest mini fridge of the bunch, and terrific value for money.
