Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing ever!! An absolute MUST for any dorm room or small space. Easy to put together - plenty of storage. Can’t recommend this more highly! Used this in a tiny Georgia Tech dorm and it was 100% worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenience and comfort My refrigerator cart is a great addition to the laundry room. We use it for our small freezer. Now we don’t have to bend down so far with our aching backs to find what we need inside. The three drawers under the freezer are handy for frequently used items like placemats, napkins, scissors, and tape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I purchased two of these two years ago. One is in the den as a printer stand and one fit under my husband's drafting table. I used the drawers in the printer stand to store paper, cartridges and other paper. I added a couple of the Elfa gift wrap organizers (Item #10017604) on the sides to hold wrapping paper. I added the gift wrap organizers on the stand under the drafting table to hold his drawings. Very pleased - these purchases started my Elfa love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fragile surface This is cart is nice however the table/surface part is fragile, you can easily chip the corners if you are not careful or chip another area. Doesn't have any breaks to stop it from rolling around. I also want to say the instructions come on 2 sheet of paper, if you don't read both of them, you might not be able to put in the screws if you put the top part first. So make sure you put the screws in before, placing the frame and top on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space saving Unicorn I live in a tiny studio apartment. This is tall enough that putting a tall mini fridge on it makes it so that accessing items in a mini fridge is simple and doesn't require acrobatics. The drawers in this unit are huge! They are the only drawers I have in my studio kitchen hold everything! The unit is very sturdy. I don't have the wheels on this and prefer it that way but this unit did come with them. It's extremely functional, simple, and cute for what it is. Great purchase! What I love most about it is that in addition to all of the storage it offers, it elevates my fridge making everything more accessible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this cart Bought this cart for my daughter to use in her dorm. It was very easy to put together. Loved how much weight it could hold. We put my daughter's microwave on top of the refrigerator and misc items on top of the microwave. It held up great all year. I didn't care for the little "nails/screws" that are used to hold the draws in place-they are easily lost. They aren't necessary, just think there could be a better solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Printer Stand I wanted to get dual monitors for my home pc but the printer was sitting on the right side. I had been eyeing this for a while and when I saw that others had used it as a printer stand and the nice mesh drawers below can hold paper and supplies, I went for it. My husband said it was pretty easy to put together, probably would have been easier if he followed directions. I like having the casters in case I want to move it around and the printer is out of my way now. Very happy with this purchase. Got the white top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I found this!! I have been looking for something like this for years. Can't believe I found it in your catalog. I have a small upright freezer a little bigger than the pictured refrigerator and it fit perfectly. I now have extra storage instead of dead space. Also, it was easy to put together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the office, too I bought the floor model of this unit, which included a second giant mesh basket instead of the two smaller ones pictured above. Marketed as a fridge cart, I found it to work really well as a rolling desk cabinet. It fits just under my desk, and the wheels are functional and smooth, even for shag carpet. The larger baskets are huge and can accommodate a lot of paperwork and knick knacks (of course, stored in other organizers also bought at the Container Store). The only think I didn't like about this product was that there weren't many options for the color of the top shelf/panel. The default pictured is an awkward greyish wood print. I bought adhesive backed black vinyl to remedy that problem, and because I got a steep discount on the floor model, I can't say I mind. Though, I think it would have bothered me more if I had bought this unit at full price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth the expense I bought this cart for my freshman year of college in hopes to use it for our micro fridge unit but ended up using it for our tv. Nonetheless, it still works out perfectly and ended up having way more storage space than I imagined. The bottom drawer has proven to hold many dishes while the top two drawers can hold a lot of food. So far I have had no problems with it and putting it together was rather easy as well. I would highly recommend this to any college student living in a dorm as it is a great space saver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful for the dorm!!! The compact fridge cart is great for adding some storage to a space that is already taken! There are now three drawers under the mini fridge in the dorm room. The drawers are large enough for snack foods and some things to fix in the microwave.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it with two comments We loved the fridge cart. Very sturdy; perfect for holding our 3.5 cubic feet 'compact' refrigerator. The top chipped, near the corners, in two places, but I was able to cover the spots with a Sharpie. Pins, for stopping the drawers from sliding all the way through the unit, are included, but they are tiny and slip out a lot. So, I glued them in. But, I’m going to buy the In & Out Clips, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for dorm or apartment This refrigerator cart is great-used it with 3 sons at college! A definite purchase for a dorm room or apartment. My son who now owns his own house uses his in his garage with his compact fridge. Easy to put together by yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool and Handy I love this fridge cart. It makes everything that has to do with snacks neat and orderly. The height of the cart brings the fridge up to a nice level , no bending down to floor for me. It is a college student's dream. Even on vacation, it is a great personal assistant for overnight guest providing them with a late midnight snack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent with one problem The only issue I have with this otherwise wonderful cart are the pins that are used as drawer stops. First I didn't read the instructions correctly and didn't put the top drawer stops before I assembled the body. Once assembled I couldn't get it apart to place them in the holes. I used hot glue to put them in upside down. The other pins had to be glued in as well. The pins are short just barely long enough to go through the two holes when the cart is jostled as it will be during use they pop out of place. This one issue could make this cart frustrating to use. As the drawers would not have a stop. BUT other than that this cart fits the bill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever This cart saves a TON of space in my dorm. It is extremely useful. It holds enough food for two people. If I didn't have this I have no idea where I would store all of my cereal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and functional Cart is sturdy, easy to assemble, and the baskets make it an efficient use of space. It was pretty well packaged but a small chunk of the melamine-covered particleboard top on mine had chipped off in transit. I oriented the top so it isn't noticeable because I didn't want to hassle with a return, but that's something to check for right away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what I was looking for My aunt moved into assisted living, and wanted to have a small refrigerator. She cannot bend down, so this cart brings the fridge right up in front of her. The fridge we bought was a 3.1 cu ft 2 door Kenmore, it fits perfectly on top. The storage bins hold a lot of stuff, they are about 20"x20", one is deeper than the other two. Well made and sturdy, you can't go wrong. Caster wheels make it easy to move around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent space-saver This cart is durable, spacious, and a wonderful use of vertical space! Very well-crafted and easy to move!
Date published: 2013-05-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I mostly got this because it hurt my back to constantly bend down to put things in and take things out of my fridge, and all the extra storage was just a bonus. Some other reviewers have stated that the top does not attach by anything more than some strong double-sided sticky tape. I have a larger sized mini fridge and I think the weight helped secure the tape more than a small fridge might have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Useful I got this cart when i went to college 4 years ago. It was wonderful in school because It provided extra storage for food (so I didn't always have to eat in the cafeteria). And now that I've graduated and moved into my first apartment I use it still. I have it in my kitchen and I put my microwave on it. I have a large microwave and this is the perfect place to put it so it doesn't take up any counter space (since it's so limited in apartment kitchens) I also still love the extra storage since I don't have many cabinets. This honestly has to be my favorite purchase from the Container store and I strongly recommend it. The only reason I couldn't give it 5 stars is that the board that goes across the top just sits on top it doesn't actually attach so it can slide off if you run into it.

Can this hold a microfridge?

Can this cart hold a microfridge (microwave/refrigerator combo unit) that weights 84 pounds?

Absolutely, it can hold quite a bit of weight. My daughter had her microwave on top of her refrigerator and misc items-tea kettle, etc on top of the microwave all year.

How much weight will this cart support with casters?

I would like to know what the largest size fridge I am able to put onto this cart and up to how many pounds will this actually hold? My fridge/freezer combo is approximately 3Ft 8 1/2" tall, and around 20W x 20D.
Asked by: CuriousKaren
Our elfa Mesh Compact Fridge Cart has a capacity of up to 99 pounds of evenly distributed, static weight with the casters on it. If the casters are removed, the weight maximum increases to about 125 pounds. It can accommodate appliances with a footprint up to 20" square.

1.44" difference

The dimensions of the mini fridge purchased for my son is : 18.5" W x 22.44" D x 32.87" H. I read that the top of fridge cart is 21" X 21" and with that consideration, will the extra 1.44" depth difference of my fridge matter or I should not try it.
Asked by: TABW1
If the bottom of the fridge is within the 21" not including the addition inches for the door then it should be fine. If the bottom base of the fridge is more than 21" we do not recommend the fridge cart.
