Those boxy compact refrigerators are alright for dorm rooms, but if you need a small refrigerator and still want freezer space, they just won't do. Some manufacturers are designing smaller units that don't take up lots of kitchen space. These compact refrigerators look like a hobbit-sized version of a real refrigerator and freezer combination. Separate, frost-free freezers are big enough to hold a few steaks, some frozen vegetables and a tray of ice. Some are even Energy Star qualified, and not many makers of large refrigerators can claim that.
