Black & Decker BCD33B 3.3 Cu. Ft. Black Compact Refrigerator Review
Even though the freezer in the Black & Decker BCD33B had unusually bad temperature ratings, it's actually a good fit for consumers who like to have more frozen goods than will fit in a single door compact. The catch? Freezer burn.
You might think that because the Black & Decker BCD33B has two separate compartments that it would be superior to single door compacts. Well, you'd be wrong. The fridge itself did fine, but the freezer was absolutely terrible. Sure, our test material froze, but it was always perilously close to thawing: open the door to see what you've got in there, and things will likely start to defrost before your eyes. As long as you don't plan on freezing anything for the long term, you should be alright: this is a fridge for Lean Cuisine dinners and pints of Ben & Jerry's, not filet Mignon. The separate compartments didn't have much of an effect on overall storage capacity, but it does allow for more balanced storage—ideal for consumers who like their frozen treats. It retails for about $158.96, though we were able to find sales that lopped the price down to about $128.
