Microwave refrigerator combos are a great purchase for dorm rooms, efficiency kitchens and offices. The compact size of the refrigerator is perfect for keeping essential items on hand for daily use, and most also have a freezer compartment for things like frozen meals and ice cream. The added convenience of having the microwave attached makes these units ideal for compact spaces.
Some combination units offer an auxiliary power outlet on the back of the microwave that allows you to connect a small appliance such as a coffee maker or toaster. The purchase of an amp overload protector is recommended with these units but most are equipped to run under the max voltage limit required in most dorm rooms.
