Mini-fridges you can get in the Philippines 


Aside from keeping our food and drinks and even cosmetic items as fresh as possible, mini-fridges also help us save space by fitting into small nooks.

To help you decide on the right mini fridge most suited to your various needs, we’ve rounded up the 10 best mini-fridges from P10,000 (~USD205.52) that ship in the Philippines. 

We’ve divided these fridges into two categories: smaller, portable ones for your room, office, and even road trip vehicles, and the larger, knee-height mini-fridges for modest but functional pantries and kitchens. 


– Portable mini-fridges –


Portable mini-fridges aren’t just for drinks – they’re also touted as an ideal place to store your cosmetics and beauty products. However, do note that most cosmetics have not been certified suitable to be stored in a fridge. 

So unless a product comes with an explicit note that it can be chilled, it’s safe to keep your beauty essentials in your cabinet at room temperature. However, products with active Vitamin C, ampoules, water-based formulae, and natural ingredients can keep well in a fridge.
