Best Small Table Top Freezer Reviews

Last Updated on January 11, 2022

Faced with limited space? A table-top freezer can protect your frozen foods whether you are camping or living in a small apartment. Let’s see which one is the best for your frosty favourites!

Product Testing & Review

Our reviewer used a clearly set list of guides to determine what was the best tabletop freezer:

  1. Ease of use
  2. Size & capacity
  3. Consistency (Efficient, quiet, and easy to freeze)

Our reviewer focused specifically on how easy to use each freezer is. It’s vital that you’re able to fit numerous things into a freezer, otherwise what’s the point, right?

Add in size (to make it easy to fit anywhere) and capacity (so it can hold what’s needed), and this was a gruelling list. Last but not least was consistency. How quiet and efficient was each freezer? Did it consistently freeze without issues? Was it hard to freeze large objects? Each of these affected a number of freezers that didn’t make the list. Now get reading to see what the best of the best is!

  • Dimensions H x W x L: ‎47.2 x 49.2 x 45 cm
  • Capacity: 31 litres
  • Door Orientation: Reversible
  • Annual Energy Consumption: ‎184 Kilowatt Hours Per Year

Did you like the first freezer but prefer a darker colour? The good news is that this freezer is made by the same premium brand and also offers most of the perks we already mentioned – including a fantastic A+ power rating and 40 dB noise limit. The elegant black will also add a classy touch to any room.

The reversible door, adjustable thermostat and adjustable feet are also present in this black model.

So go ahead, enjoy the new decor touch while storing your favourite frozen foods. But will you get the same savings as the first freezer on this list? Well, you might actually save more.

Our reviewer chose this Energy Star rated freezer for its incredible energy performance and good size. It’s great at preventing an ice buildup and is incredibly efficient. The one thing that kept it from reaching the #1 spot is that it’s rather loud – so find a spot to keep it that this won’t bother you.

  • Energy-efficient and easy to use.
  • A stylish appearance.
  • It has ample storage space. Many users say they found it to be bigger inside.

3. The Table Top Mini Freezer (White) By Cookology (Product #MFZ32WH)

White Table Top Mini Freezer By Cookology

Specifications:

  • Capacity: 32 litres
  • Door Orientation: Reversible
  • Energy Rating: F

Craving a second look at the market’s best white freezers? Here’s another good choice for the white or neutral kitchen – or anybody who just adores a milky-looking freezer!

Stash your stuff inside this box which comes with a capacity of 32 litres and an A+ power rating. Indeed, you can look forward to performance, functionality and style all rolled into one product. Do you want to hear about great features.

The adjustable thermostat and 42dB noise level makes it ideal for student accommodation, offices and guest rooms. The height of the shelf is adjustable and the appliance has a freezing capacity of 2kg/24 hours. You will also get a one-year guarantee.

Our reviewer chose this because it’s quite quiet, small, and comes with a 1-year warranty. While it can’t defrost itself and isn’t anchored super well, it’s a great choice for those who are short on space. The additional quality of life improvements, such as the small lip on the bottom that prevent slipping is just icing on the cake.

Pros

  • It operates quietly.
  • This product can be used with an electrical hook-up during camping.
  • 1 year warranty
  • Easy to set up.
  • The bottom shelf has a lipped tray to prevent small items from falling out.
  • Comes with an ice cube tray and ice scraper.

Cons

  • This freezer cannot defrost itself.
  • The freezer doesn’t have a good anchoring weight. If you open the door enthusiastically, the freezer might move.

4. The 4 Star **** (Black) Tabletop Freezer By Cookology (Product #COOK-MFZ-32BK)

Black Table Top Mini Freezer By Cookology

Specifications:

  • Dimensions H x W x L: 45 x 47.2 x 49.2 cm
  • Capacity: 32 Litres
  • Door Orientation: Reversible
  • Energy Rating: F

We haven’t forgotten the fans of Cookology who love the dark side!

We present the black version of the product we just reviewed a little earlier. The solid black freezer is also a top-rated, best-selling mini freezer with a gross volume of 32 litres. And just like its white counterpart, this freezer also performs with satisfaction and offers functionality and style as well.

Similarly, there’s an adjustable thermostat and the quiet 42dB noise limit will also suit those who hate constant sound. Perfect for students who are studying or in an office.

Our reviewer chose this for three reasons. The long lead cable allows a bit more flexibility in where this goes, it’s small but with good capacity, and it comes with a warranty. While it’s not self-defrosting and has a somewhat awkward placing of the power cord, it’s overall a quality product.

Pros

  • One-year guarantee.
  • A long lead cable.
  • Small enough for the countertop but big enough to store several frozen items.
  • Light and portable.

Cons

  • The power cable emerges from the back (on the right-hand side). You may have to rotate it to reach your power socket.
  • The fridge is not self-defrosting.

5. The Best 40 L Mini Freezer By Ice King (Product #TF40K.E)

40L Mini Freezer A+ Energy By Ice King

Specifications:

  • Dimensions H x W x L: 44.7 x 48 x 52.2 cm
  • Capacity: 40 litres
  • Door Orientation: Reversible
  • Energy Rating: A+

Do you need something bigger?

This 40-litre snowflake might be your guy. Despite being bigger than most of the freezers we have discussed so far, it’s still compact enough for small countertops, flats, offices, boats, and caravans. You don’t have to sacrifice a lot of space to enjoy the ample storage of the freezer.

Your electric bill won’t make you weep, either! With an energy-saving rating of A+, your frozen yoghurt won’t cost more than a pirate’s treasure to keep cool.

Perk discussion time! The freezer has a reversible door, interior lights, an adjustable thermostat, one wire shelf, a metal backing and a two-year warranty.

Our reviewer put this in the middle of the road for a reason. It’s the largest and one of the more efficient freezers on this list, giving it some good bonuses. But its awkward thermostat placement, need for manual defrosting, and the heat of the sides and top during use made it less than ideal. But the 2-year warranty just about makes up for all of the negatives, so it was a hard decision exactly where this needed to go on the list.

Pros

  • This freezer is cold within five minutes (after switching it on for the first time).
  • Ample storage capacity.
  • Comes with a two-year parts and labour warranty.
  • Easy to set up and use.
  • 2-year warranty

Cons

  • The sides and top can become hot during use.
  • Needs manual defrosting.
  • The thermostat is at the back, so it’s not so easy to change temp settings.

6. Table Top Mini Freezer By Igenix (Product #IG6751)

Table Top Mini Freezer By Igenix

Specifications:

  • Dimensions H x W x L: ‎49 x 44 x 51 cm
  • Capacity: 35 litres
  • Door Orientation: Reversible
  • Annual Energy Consumption: ‎153 Kilowatt Hours Per Year

This is another ideal freezer for small spaces. Whether you have a small bachelor pad, a mini- flat or a ridiculously small office, this silvery-dark appliance will keep your frozen stuff chilly. It will happily hum along in any environment that is between 16 and 32 degrees Celsius. The freezer itself has a temperature range of -18 degrees Celsius.

The freezer excels at keeping food cold at a regular temperature setting. It’s rare to use the maximum setting on this mini-fridge.

Besides the beautiful stainless steel look, you can utilize its 34 L storage capacity and arrange your items on a single wire shelf. Do you have kids or co-workers who snack on your lunch? No more – this mini fridge comes with a lockable door to keep those sandwich thieves at bay.

Our reviewer chose this for its adaptability and easy use features. The addition of a lock and decent storage capacity makes it eminently worthy of a place on our list. Our reviewer loved the”plug-and-play” ability of this freezer and was a big fan of the energy efficiency this freezer boasted. The awkward thermostat placement and need for manual defrosting kept it from the top 5 spots on the list.

Pros

  • Plug-and-play.
  • This freezer is quiet enough to use in your bedroom.
  • The surface is mostly scratch proof.
  • Adjustable legs.
  • Power-saving.
  • Easy to clean.

Cons

  • Needs manual defrosting.
  • The thermostat is at the back. Changing the setting can be a chore.

7. Lockable Door Mini Freezer By Igenix (Product #‎IG3751)

Lockable Door Mini Freezer By Igenix

Specifications:

  • Dimensions H x W x L: ‎49 x 44 x 51 cm
  • Capacity: 35 litres
  • Door Orientation: Reversible
  • Annual Energy Consumption: 153 Kilowatt Hours Per Year

This classy tabletop freezer is ideal for compact flats, kitchens and student lodgings. It comes with a very contemporary and versatile design that allows you to place it in different rooms.

The inside has a capacity of 34 litres and there is one wire shelf and a manual thermostat to keep things steady. If you have a large family, this boxy wonder is great as a secondary freezer. It’s also perfect to store medications at school, home or the office.

The door is reversible. This helps you to maximize what little space is available by opening the door in the direction that works best for you. The door also comes with a lock and key to keep your valuable salami salad safe from that meat-loving colleague.

Our reviewer was a big fan of the lock and key, as well as the sturdiness of its construction. She found that it frosts up quite quickly, and that overloading it makes it hard to actually freeze everything. If you’re a single college student looking to freeze pizzas and taquitos, you’re in luck. But if you want to freeze enough food for multiple people, there are better options up the list.

Pros

  • Power-efficient.
  • Suitable for garage use.
  • Can fit inside a cupboard shelf.
  • Sturdy and durable.
  • Reasonably quiet when running.

Cons

  • It seems to frost up quickly.
  • Too many items inside can prevent proper freezing.

8. The Best 43 Litre Beer Chest By COMFEE (Product #RCZ46BG1(E))

best 20 L table top freezer

Specifications:

  • Dimensions H x W x L: ‎48 x 44 x 49.2 cm
  • Capacity: 43 litres
  • Door Orientation: Reversible
  • Annual Energy Consumption: ‎95 Kilowatt Hours Per Year

Our reviewer absolutely loved this fridge/freezer, and wanted it much higher on the list. Its downfall, though, is that it can really only fit wine, beer, or soft drinks. It’s got fixed wire shelves that make it hard to store anything else, and while it could work as a freezer (it’s got an adjustable thermostat that goes below freezing), it really can’t function well as one.

Beyond the space and freezing/fridge dilemma, it’s an extremely quiet fridge that’s surprisingly efficient – more so than any other device on this list. If you’re looking to freeze a few bottles of liquor, wine, or cool brews, this is your device. If you want a food freezer, don’t pick this guy.

Pros

  • Small enough for a camping trip.
  • Great for a specific thing – drinks.
  • Stylish glass door
  • Energy-saving.

Cons

  • Too small if you want to store everyday basics like milk and food together.

9. The Best 43 L Table Top Freezer By Russell Hobbs (Product #RHTTLF1)

43L Table Top A+ Energy Efficient Fridge Freezer By Russell Hobbs

Specifications:

  • Dimensions H x W x L: ‎48 x 50 x 45 cm
  • Capacity: 43 litres
  • Door Orientation: Reversible
  • Annual Energy Consumption: ‎100 Kilowatt Hours Per Year

This mini freezer is the second-largest model on our list. Swing over to the final item if you want the biggest one! But let’s see what this small giant can offer you.

You can expect all of the top goodies including an A+ power rating, a reversible door, an adjustable thermostat and adjustable feet. Then there’s the 45-litre capacity, a removable wire shelf, one fixed bottle rack, and an icebox.

This gleaming white freezer is perfect for the larger family or someone who permanently lives in an RV and needs to keep their basics cold.

Our reviewer loved this freezer exclusively for its low energy consumption in comparison to other freezers on this list. The freezer’s refusal to work without a cranked thermostat, though, made it quite hard to use consistently. But its large capacity alongside its efficiency and quiet running makes it deserve a place on this list.

Pros

  • The freezer runs relatively quietly.
  • An icebox feature.
  • There is enough space to serve as a standard kitchen fridge (for 1-2 people).
  • The thermal reading control is consistent.

Cons

  • Sometimes the freezer compartment only works if the thermostat is on the maximum.

10. The Best 47 L Table Top Freezer By Igenix (Product #‎IG3710)

Table Top Fridge Freezer 47L By Igenix

Specifications:

  • Dimensions H x W x L: 47 x 44 x 51 cm
  • Capacity: 47 litres
  • Door Orientation: Reversible
  • Annual Energy Consumption: ‎110 Kilowatt Hours Per Year

Whether it’s washing machines, range cookers, tumble dryers or fridge freezers, Igenix has a range of great products and this fridge is no different. Both the outside and interior of the fridge are white and clean-looking. The appliance can also effectively keep food cold – even on days as hot as 38 degrees Celsius.

The 47-litre capacity makes this freezer a great option for RV dwellers, students with small apartments (but lots of snacks), and even a school fridge to store medication. The bigger size does not mean that you will get a bigger power bill. Like all our freezers on this list, this mini fridge is A+ rated and consumes no more than 110kWh per year.

Yep, you get a reversible door that can be locked as well. There’s also an icebox and an in-door shelf for storing milk and drinks. The two balcony shelves are perfect for butter, bacon, eggs, and cheese.

Our reviewer loved the energy efficiency and ample space of this freezer. Its downfall, though, was that the lock is near useless and the ice compartment allegedly leaks water (though our reviewer didn’t see this). Its noise and lack of sturdiness makes it just barely make it onto our list.

Pros

  • You get a pair of two keys for the lock.
  • It has an output adjustment dial.
  • There is ample space.
  • Can store a single tall bottle of juice or wine.

Cons

  • The lock can be opened with almost any key and can easily be forced open.
  • Some users complain that the ice compartment leaks water.
  • This may not be the sturdiest mini-fridge there is.
  • Can be noisy.

Your Small Table Top Freezer Buying Guide


Similar to a mini-fridge, a small table top freezer is a worthy investment. Our guide shows you how to pick the best model!

Factors to Consider Before Buying A Small Freezer

Small Table Top Freezers Buying Guides

Volume and Size

Does the freezer fit your available space? The size freezer you choose is both determined by the available space and the number of items you need to store.

Noise

Unfortunately, some mini freezers hum a little too loudly. Always check the decibel level before placing your order.

Reversible Door

This is a cool feature. It’s nice to be able to choose whether your fridge opens to the right or the left. It’s up to you to decide whether you need this feature but it does make a freezer more versatile.

Adjustable Shelves

Adjustable shelves are a must to maximise your freezer space. They keep storage flexible to whatever you need to store at a given moment. A permanent shelf can be cumbersome and limiting if you want to store larger items.

Locks

If you need to keep unauthorized persons from accessing a freezer, a unit with a key is the best option.

Types of Small Freezers for Your Home and Office

Let’s quickly run through some of the options.

Cube Mini Freezer 

This is the most commonly used type of freezer. They’re affordable, compact and ideal for tight spaces. They typically weigh anywhere from 25-30 lbs and are more suitable for drinks and snacks rather than heavier foods like meat.

Mid-Size Mini Freezer 

This freezer has shelves and compartments with adjustable temperature controls that allow you to store meats, fruits and vegetables.

Counter Top Mini Freezer

As the name implies, counter top freezers stand at the height of your counter top. They have more space and produce a strong cooling output that ensures well-frozen items.

Travel Mini Fridge

This type of freezers can be plugged into the cigarette lighter of your vehicle to keep perishables cold on trips.


Small Table Top Freezers Buying FAQs


Q: What is the best small freezer to buy?

A: Would you rather buy a deep freezer or an upright freezer? Compared to the upright models, deep freezers have about 20% more usable space. Deep freezers prevent ice burn and during blackouts will keep food frozen for longer. They also use less electricity. But upright freezers have benefits notably better organizing space.

Q: What is the smallest freezer you can buy?

A: The smallest freezer you can buy is an upright small freezer. They are the smaller of the mini models and occupy far less space on the floor.

Q: Does cold weather affect fridge freezers?

A: A refrigerator can struggle when the weather is very cold. Fridges cool food by moving heat outside. Cold air on the outside tricks the thermostat into thinking that the inside air doesn’t need chilling and the compressor won’t kick in. And remember that the compressor is what kick-starts the chilling process. That won’t bode well for your food and drinks in any way.
