EDITOR’S NOTE: Updated for December of 2021. 

In the time I’ve been covering Aldi, I’ve seen a lot. Aldi is known to sell just about everything, especially through its rotating middle aisle. Around here we figure that if you wait long enough, you’ll see it.

What I haven’t seen before is an Aldi fridge; not in the U.S., at least. I have seen refrigerators in Aldi stores overseas, including Australia, which sold a full-sized one earlier this year. Up to this point, though, I haven’t seen one in the States.

That’s no longer the case. Just in time for college students to head back to school, Aldi US sold a fridge that is small enough for a dorm. Then, in December of 2021, Aldi brought the refrigerator back.

What We Know:

Ambiano Mini Fridge

The Ambiano Mini Fridge is an Aldi Find, which means you can only find it in stores for a short time. At the time of this post, the fridge costs $79.99. That’s a solid price for a mini fridge.

Here’s more info on the fridge:

  • 40.47 qt.
  • Includes an adjustable thermostat
  • Features a 2-tier shelf
  • Includes 2 L bottle storage
  • Comes with a reversible door

The mini fridge also includes a three-year warranty.

What We Don’t Know:

We don’t know how well this fridge works or how long it lasts. Our goal with open thread posts such as this is to provide a space for readers to share about their experiences with a product.


Do you have any experience with this fridge? Let us know in the comments.

    Here is a link to the UK site that has the measurements. It is no longer being carried in the UK stores. It is small and it has good reviews.

  2. Aldi had this fridge in their sale flyer starting Wednesday aug 4, 2021
    I went to 5 different Aldi stores when they first open up and not one Aldi store had them. Hey aldi don’t put stuff in your flyer if your not going to have them

  3. My Aldi has the small tabletop fridge and I’m very interested in it. If I were to buy it and there were a problem would I be able to return it? And if so who would I return it to? The store or have to send it to some manufacturer?

  4. Bought it and 11 days later doesn’t turn on

  5. I just bought a 46L (48.6qt) one that has a freezer part for $59.99 on clearance (was $79.99) I went online looking for reviews and this is pretty much one of the few sites that mentions it. I’ll post back with more info in a few weeks/months

    • 3 weeks later and so far so good. The freezer part works excellent. Turning the thermostat all the way up will even freeze bottles of water stored in the regular fridge part. Cool little machine, and quiet too! Definitely happy with the purchase so far

  6. I got mine today March 7th for $39.99 on clearance. Just plugged it in, I will report back when I get more use out of it!
