Fridges + Appliances
Fridges + Food StorageWhen you have something to eat and drink handy, you can keep right on studying without stopping and changing gears to go get snacks. Easily accessible snacks and drinks are also useful when study time is over and it is time to relax for a couple hours of binge watching your favorite TV show or YouTube channel. At PBteen, we have assembled a selection of cool mini fridges and food storage containers you can enjoy in your home away from home, meaning your dorm room, or in your bedroom at home. Match the exterior color of your mini fridge to our style tiles and other teen collection pieces to add to your roomʼs decor scheme.
How much space do you have for a mini fridge? Check the dimensions of the place you plan to put your fridge in your dorm, bedroom or first apartment and then confirm that the fridge you want will fit. You may find you can accommodate a standard model, or you might need to scale down to a smaller refrigeration unit – we’ve got you covered. Also, consider what type of food and drinks you plan to store in your room. A feature like a removable shelf lets you arrange your mini unit to hold taller items or a larger quantity of small food items. Removable parts also make it easier to clean a small fridge by popping the pieces out and washing them with dish detergent.
If you are working with an extra small space, or only plan to keep a small amount of things chilled in your room, an electric cooler fits the bill. Our electric coolers use less electricity than a traditional fridge, and if you need something warmed instead of chilled, you can flip a switch on the back to activate the warming function. Add one of these coolers to enhance the retro or boho decor of your bedroom, or match the exterior to other pieces from our teen collection for a unified theme.
If you need a place to put your mini refrigerator, choose a rolling fridge cart from our collection. For the most strength and durability, look for a cart that features a metal frame. Drawers are also a useful feature because they give you extra storage and a place to tuck some cutlery and dinnerware or a bag of chips. Turn your snack area into a mini organization station by adding magnetic note pads to the rails of your cart and fridge so you can leave yourself notes about important assignments, and so you can make a list of things you need to restock in your room as you use them.
Your brain will function at its peak performance when you feed it properly, but life gets busy sometimes for students. When there is no time in your daily study schedule to stop and eat, plan ahead and pack a hot and cold container with your favorite hot soup or canned pasta. Fill the container with a cold protein drink or smoothie and put the ice pack in the lid to keep your drink cold as you power through your day. Our collection of hot and cold containers feature shatterproof bases, plus they do not contain BPA or phosphates. Match your container to your backpack or lunch bag, or simply choose the one that best fits your personal style.
If a solid meal or crunchy snacks are more to your liking than soup or smoothies or, if you just like to mix things up from day to day, our Bento boxes provide a handy way to carry salad or fresh vegetables. Tuck portions of your five favorite snacks or salad fixings into the compartments and slide the filled Bento box into your lunch bag or tote bag before you head out for class or when you are spending your day off at the beach. These sturdy plastic food storage boxes are top-rack dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning.
