The Danby DCR326BSL refrigerator offers an internal storage capacity of 3.1 cubic feet. There is space to hold a tall 2-liter bottle of soda and a vegetable crisper complete with a cover. An interior light also helps you see the contents of the refrigerator easily.

It also offers a separate freezer compartment. It doesn’t have an automatic defrost feature, so you will need to do that manually.


This fridge is fitted with a stainless-look door. It has an integrated handle for a cleaner look. The door also has a reversible hinge so that you can have it open from either the left or the right. Very useful in certain circumstances.


The exterior of the Danby DCR326BSL is composed of a black cabinet. It has a smooth back so that you can sit it right up against the wall, though as with most fridges you should leave a few inches for the heat to escape. There is also a worktop on top of the unit which can hold a small appliance of some sort.

The DCR326BSL is a compact design. It measures 33 inches high, 18 inches wide, and 19 inches deep. The machine weighs just under 64 pounds.


It is backed by a one year parts and labor warranty.


  • It's basically a decent entry-level fridge.


  • It's pretty noisy - half the time it goes into overdrive and fills your kitchen with sound.
  • Some parts of the construction are quite flimsy.
  • It doesn't seem to keep the right temperature - quite the flaw in a fridge!


There are much better fridges on the market, but if you can get a good price, it's not a bad option for a college dorm, starter apartment or similar.
