Man Cave Bling – Beer Fridge – Koldfront 80 (BBR900BL) by EdgeStar

  • First one was a dud out of the box. Just didn’t cool at all. EdgeStar support said it was missing coolant. Took them about 2 full weeks to turn around the replacement. They paid all replacement shipping via printed return label. It was a new serial number, not a repair of my old one, and it looked new.
  • I am very satisfied now with this second unit and would definitely recommend it.
  • The look is very nice. The glass is great. The blue light is great.
  • The size is great, very deep. Fit my under-the-bar-cabinet-slot really well. A little shorter than the broken down old “Scotsman” that was in there but nothing a couple 2x4’s didn’t fix.
  • Sure am glad to have found something in a more reasonable price range… I’m sure the Scotsman stuff must last forever but at upwards of $2k, not on my kids’ college budget 🙂
  • Cooling has been spot on for the 2 months I’ve had it so far <knock wood>.
  • The cheapest I was able to find it was from “Ideal Wine Coolers” for $400. Half retail and $100 less than Amazon.
  • Other considerations for this same general form factor are the:
  • “EdgeStar 80” (CBR901SG) for $500 if you’re interested in the stainless steel look, and the
  • “EdgeStar 84” (OBR900SS) for $750 if you want outdoor certified cooling capabilityDSC_0991-50%… they indicate that a unit should be specifically designed to run outdoors or it will burn itself out quickly running non stop… that one would look great next to a hot tub 🙂
