While this elegant and spacious refrigerator by Danby may be big enough to live in, we don’t recommend it. What it is recommended for though is people who are looking for a reliable and dependable refrigerator unit without freezer space. This Designer model serves up 11 cubic feet (311 litres) of cool storage area and the prestigious Energy Star rating and high-tech mechanical thermostat means it will cut back on your power bills. The stylish appliance features a single door with an integrated handle and a clever reversible hinge which allows you to set it for right or left-handed opening. The neat and tidy interior is illuminated by a powerful lighting system which makes it easy to organize the glass-covered vegetable crisper, the integrated door shelves, and the four-and-a-half adjustable glass shelves. There’s considerable room for large and tall bottle and this top-of-the-line unit comes with a worry-free 18-month warranty on parts and labour along with convenient in-home service. This magnificent combination will provide you with 11 cubic feet of fridge space.

Customer Reviews

Danby Designer 11 cu. ft. Apartment Size Refrigerator is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Great 2nd Fridge... Purchased as a secondary fridge for overflow from regular fridge (beverages, extra meats and vegetables, etc.). Loved the fact that it was freezer-less (only one I could find!) since we already have a chest freezer. Only (minor) complain is that vegetables in plastic bags or original packaging seem to collect vast amounts of moisture leading to rapid deterioration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good Regridgeator only The fridge is a great size for storing fresh vegetables and fresh fruit. It is great for preparing food for festive time of the year(Xmas) and (Grandsons 3rd Birthday). We have really enjoyed the storage from the vegetable garden we have and the many visits to Market Gardens. Thank You. Grand Idea.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No parts available after only 3 years (DAR1102WE) Originally perfect fit/size, perfect use (no freezer) - great service while under warranty. Now I need a simple part ( and not available for 2 months - what good is this unit without parts? In many attempts to locate the part one referenced Danby as "not a manufacture, they just slap their name on stuff". Good luck all as this is my second repair for the same part.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from like my fridge It works fine for us as we don't need a freezer in the kitchen.Sometimes the door is hard to openand might have been better with a handle.The plastic slider on the crisper is a nuisance though as it keeps falling off.Overall I am pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fridge We required an all fridge unit that was small but not too small and this unit fit the bill to a "T". This unit is a second fridge used for overflow and extra storage for grocery items. We have had it for just over a year and it was an excellent purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Danby Fridge Pros: Good as a second fridge. Glass shelves Cons: Need to keep dial turned to maximum to keep it at refrigerator temperature, regardless if it is empty or full. Not the best quality

We do not recommend using an extension cord.
Our refrigerators are not designed for outside installation. This also includes anywhere that is not temperature controlled. ie. garages, porches, carports, etc.
The temperature range varies based on model. Please consult your owner’s manual or the product page on the website.
Please refer to your product on
Information pertaining to watts and amps can be found on the rating plate located on the back of the unit.
There could be one of two things happening. You have the temperature set too high (too cold) or you are leaving food right under the vent or up against the back wall.
It is common for new units to have a slight plastic smell. Ensure you have removed all packing material from the fridge. If that does not help, clean the inside of the unit by following the cleaning instructions included in the owner’s manual. Once completed, place an open box of baking soda in the fridge to absorb any remaining odours.
This is normal. If you feel like it is coming on too often, adjust your temperature setting.
Have you recently opened and then closed the fridge (over the last 1-5 minutes)? If so, being unable to open the fridge again right away is an indication that your door seal is working well. An example of this is you open the fridge, grab a yogurt then close it, but then you decide you want a pudding so you try to open it again but the door seems stuck. When you opened the unit the first time for the yogurt, heat and humidity entered the fridge. When you closed the fridge, this heat was sealed into the unit. If you go to open the fridge again within 5 minutes for the pudding, it might be difficult to open the seal. Wait 5-10 minutes (this allows the hot air in the fridge to cool), when you try opening it again there should be no problem.
This varies based on model. Please refer to your owner’s manual. If your knob is a dial that has a blue strip, the darker blue/thicker side indicates the coldest setting. If it is numbered, the highest number is the coldest setting. If your model has a thermostat with temperatures in °C /F, set it to the coolest temperature.
Yes, please allow it to sit upright for 6 hours before plugging it in.
