My parents accidentally bought our suite a wine cooler instead of a fridge. We took out some of the shelving units and use it to keep food anyways. Over time, we have grown to appreciate the glass door. It not only looks nice, but also allows us to see what we still have in the fridge without opening the door. This saves energy and also saves us from dealing with mouldy eats. We would definitely recommend wine coolers to college students looking for fridges.
