If you have read any of my past blog posts then you know how much I love to entertain in my home.
Whether it’s a small bible study group, Thanksgiving dinner or fun 4th of July party, I can’t get enough of having guests over to celebrate with my family.
This brings me to the point of this post, I NEEDED a beverage fridge.
This is where the NewAir 177-Can Black Stainless Steel Deluxe Beverage Fridge comes into play.
Before, I would set up a few coolers on the porch or in the garage and fill them up with ice and drinks. They were a bit of a mess.
Sometimes they leaked, ice would get all over the place, or it would melt and people would have to stick their hands in the water to get a drink. Effective, but not exactly the best way to do the job.
I recently received this new beverage fridge and let me tell you – I am IN LOVE!
What I love about the NewAir Beverage Fridge
First a few things I love about the NewAir Beverage Fridge.
- Easy to set up – you only have to assemble the door, handle and shelves. It took about 8 minutes from start to finish. All I needed was a Phillips screwdriver.
- Holds a lot of drinks…even wine bottles!
- It has adjustable shelves so you can tailor each section to the height of your drinks.
- It gets cool fast and stays cool
- It locks!! – If you use it to keep party stuff cool, you can be sure no one (kids, for example) will swipe some beforehand
- It’s quiet – a LOT quieter than I expected it to be for the size
How to Use it for Parties, BBQs, or Even Playdates!
The large size allows me to put decorations on top of it. Obviously, you don’t have to do this but I think it makes a huge difference! 🙂
You could also put pitchers up there during parties, freeing up counter space and keeping all the drinks in one location. This was very convenient as well as being aesthetically pleasing.
It is a little bit larger than a typical mini-fridge (like the one I had in college), so it had plenty of space on the top!
Normally I use the fridge in my garage to store party food and drinks ahead of time, but with this large fridge I can keep everything I need in here. I have even used the second row from top to store the appetizers I made the day before. That is SUPER handy!
This freed up A TON of space in my kitchen and garage refrigerators so I have a lot more room for groceries. Because everything I need party-wise is in this fridge, I don’t have to worry about people getting into my kitchen fridge during parties (which isn’t always the cleanest or most organized!).
You could even put condiments + other items (mayo, salad dressing, dips, pickles, etc) in the beverage fridge for cookouts if you want to.
One of my favorite things about the NewAir Deluxe Beverage Fridge is that the door is clear.
My guests can see the beverage selection before they open the door. No more standing in front of an open fridge or wading through melted ice to figure out what they want to drink! This has been the hugest benefit in my opinion.
You Can Also Use the Beverage Fridge Every Day
We actually use it all the time, not just during parties.
I keep it in the sitting room right off the kitchen and it’s wonderful. It’s tucked into a nice little corner under the bar top. It’s out of the way but nearly within arms length.
Now while my husband and I are relaxing in the afternoon or the kids are trying to finish their homework, we have easy access to drinks. It’s so convenient to have especially if guests drop by or the neighbor kids come by to play.
All in all I am so happy with it. The NewAir Deluxe Beverage Fridge has been a blessing in our home!
