Magic Chef MCBR415S 4.0 Cu. Ft. Stainless Look Compact Refrigerator Review

For consumers on a big budget who want something more than a truly mini fridge but don't have room for even a smaller full-sized model, we present the Magic Chef MCBR415S. With performance ratings that were surprisingly high, it's worth the average price of $239... if you can find it, that is.

Running Cost

While it won't cripple your bank account by any means, the $27.22 that you'll have to pay every year to power the Magic Chef is definitely more than you'd have to shell out for a standard sized mini fridge. In fact, it's nearly double the rates that we saw on other, average models. We reach that figure by using a standard rate of $0.09 per kW-h, so keep in mind that it may be more or less depending on the energy costs in your area.

Power Use Per Cu Ft

Even accounting for extra storage space, the Magic Chef turned out to be a fridge with poor energy ratings. For every cubic foot of usable space, it requires 0.25 kW-h. Unlike the annual bill, this isn't necessarily twice as poor as smaller models, but it's definitely worse, even compared to full-sized fridges.
