Top Outdoor Refrigerators UL Rated under $1200

Outdoor Refrigerators are one of the most popular appliances that are included when planning an outdoor kitchen. When entertaining outdoors, the ability to have cold beverages at your finger tips is a must! There are even more options than just refrigeration including refrigerated drawers, ice makers, refrigerator/freezer combinations and kegerators. The possibilities today are endless though budgets may not be. 

When choosing an outdoor refrigerator an important feature to consider is front ventilation. This keeps you from having to add a vent in your structure for air flow. Otherwise, the heat from the refrigerator will collect in the back of your outdoor kitchen and burn the unit out quicker. 

Another important feature is a unit that is a UL approved appliance for outdoor use. This is means that the product has passed a series of tests to be safely used outdoors.

Outdoor Refrigerators have to work harder than indoor ones because of the heat and elements.

There are lots of choices, today, from luxury to more budget friendly. Here in South Florida, we always suggest the refrigerators on this list first because our climate is so hard on these types of appliances. 

Plus, we would rather the additional money be used towards a better grill.
