The Danby DFF100C1BSLDB Apartment Size Fridge Comes with a Caveat

Note: I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

The Danby DFF100C1BSLDB (I wish they gave these things better names.) is a fairly standard apartment size refrigerator at the upper end of this range of appliances space-wise.

Many owners are quite satisfied with their purchase of the Danby, but you might want to be cautious about getting one of these for yourself. Read the following article to see why.

If you’re in a hurry though and just want to check the price of this Danby unit at Amazon, click (or tap) the link just below.

The Danby Apartment Fridge Has Standard Features

This fridge gives you 10 cubic feet of storage space in the chiller and freezer combined. That’s space near the upper end of the apartment size category. You’ll still be able to fit quite a bit of food inside, even though this isn’t a full size refrigerator.

Danby says this unit has a “frost free-operation system”. I think that means the lower, chiller area doesn’t need manual defrosting. I can’t find anything that says the freezer will never need defrosting. Most do.

Unlike this Bosch fridge, the Danby has the more common configuration where the freezer is at the top. Inside you get one adjustable, wire shelf that extends the full width of the compartment. You get an ice cube tray too.

In the chiller, you’ll find 3 adjustable glass shelves and a veggie crisper that also has a glass cover.

The door shelving allows for tall bottles in addition to the standard size containers.

Danby Fridge Specs Are Standard Too

This refrigerator measures 23.8 inches wide by 26.4 inches deep by 59.8 inches high and weighs 130 pounds out of the box.

The door has reversible hinges so you can open it the direction that works best for the space you have available.

The electronic temperature controls are nothing fancy but serve the purpose intended.

There is a bright white interior LED light that illuminates the chiller without affecting the temperature.

The finish of the door looks like stainless steel but is apparently a material that inhibits smudging. If smudges are a problem for you, this might be a good reason to check out this model. The back is smooth, which I believe means there are no visible coils.

You get a 12 month warranty of parts and labor with in-home service.

Here’s the Caveat about the Danby DFF100C1BSLDB

Actually, there are two warnings to mention here.

First, you will void the warranty if you install this fridge outside your home – as in a garage or an RV. It’s not that it won’t work in those areas, but if you ever need repairs in the first year of use and you had it outside the house, you won’t be covered by the warranty.

Second, only about ⅔ of current owners are satisfied with the Danby. The others have problems and complaints that cover a range of things and all seem to be legitimate concerns. That said, you may be one of the owners in the two-thirds group who never has a problem and would rate this fridge with 5 stars out of 5. It’s your call.
