The Koolatron Vending Fridge makes a great gift for a teenager or older person. With its Coca-Cola logo at the top, it’s fun; but it’s more than just a nostalgic novelty item; it’s also functional as a cooler or mini-fridge. Whether used in the kitchen or pool room, it keeps cold drinks at the user’s fingertips, saving room in the regular refrigerator for the larger items. It even offers a convenient car plug-in so you can take it on the go.
This item does not cool things like a full-sized refrigerator. Drinks won’t be ice cold. Although it looks nice and works as a conversation piece, it’s small and cheaply made. It doesn’t take money like an actual vending machine – it’s more like a toy. The consumer must push a button to release the cans, and it requires a hard effort to make it work. It also cannot hold water bottles (unless you can find some 8-ounce size), ar any cans except the 12-ounce size. The cans drop down as promised, but since the sodas on the higher shelves have further to fall, they tend to get shaken up and explode when opened.
If you want a mini fridge that an hold more than just cans, check out the Danby Designer compact all refrigerator. It can cover any need you may have for a compact refrigerator.
