Engel Refrigerator/Freezers

 

Very energy efficient, reliable and long-lived.  At every boat show we do, there are people who come up to our booth and say something like, “Engel!  This is the best thing we have on our boat!  I love my Engel!  I hereby commit my life to worshipping this product!”  (Okay, we never actually heard that last one, but you get the idea.)

Independent testing confirms the MT45 uses 21 amp-hours per day, adjusted to 35F degrees inside, in 90F degree ambient temperature.  All Engel refrigerator/freezers use a German designed “swing compressor” that works by an electromagnet pulling a plunger/piston that compresses the refrigerant, then the plunger springs back.  The strength of the pulse of the electromagnet is determined by the heat load.  Parts are manufactured in Japan and then assembled in Indonesia.  Very popular in Australia with the guys who take their 4WD camping in the outback.

ACCESSORIES

One option is the “Slide Lock” that will hold the refrigerator to the floor of a 4WD in a roll-over (or keep it from sliding around in your boat).

Also very popular with RVers, there is a “slide tray” that allows the refrigerator freezer to slide into a compartment (like along the bottom sides of a large RV).

Most models have a lid that will open from the end, and the lid will slide off (kind of like a pintel and gudgeon arrangement).  There is an optionial lock that will prevent the lid from sliding off.  The new MR40 has a lid that opens from the side, and can be switched to open from the other side.

Most models have an optional insulated cover that would be a good idea if the refrigerator is stored where sunlight can shine directly onto it.
