Why would anyone want an undercounter drawer that’s refrigerated? Lots of reasons:

  • it can be used as overflow for beer & chilled wine storage during a party
  • it is easily accessible by short people (like kids)
  • it can be located further from the main fridge, so both can be used simultaneously without kitchen traffic problems
  • costs less than a large fridge to run ($32 - $42 annually)
  • opening the drawer won’t let out as much cool as a large fridge door
  • door panels matching surrounding cabinets can be applied for a uniform appearance (although leaving the stainless steel look would be a good visual cue that it’s a fridge appliance, not just another cabinet drawer)

What’s not to love? While they can be expensive ($1,800 to $3,000+), they do solve some convenience issues. And if the kitchen is small, and not much cooking is done otherwise, or only 1 or 2 residents, it may be all the refrigerated storage needed. Modern kitchen storage, whether cooled or not, should match the lifestyle of those living there.

Most refrigerator drawer units have 2 drawers, although there are some 3 drawer models available also. Here are some models to peruse:
