It’s an impressive little fridge and because of that we are pleased to give it a customer rating of 4.5 stars out of a possible 5. Here’s a brief overview of the features and functionality followed by the full review details.
Overview of Haier HNSE932 Features
- Perfect dorm fridge or mini-fridge freezer
- Comes with a full-width freezer compartment

Best Compact Refrigerator with Rooms for Soda Cans
The inner door section has got two wire baskets set next to each other (please see the large photos tab) which can hold soda cans.
It’s possible to place four Coke cans in each, giving you a total of eight side by side. This means that if you’re thirsty you can easily reach to dispense a soda can whenever you want.
There’s not much else you can do with the wire dispensers other than use them to hold drinks cans – but if you did want a dedicated soda can vending fridge then we can recommend anything from the Koolatron range.
If you like the small Haier fridge, but want a refrigerator even smaller then go for the Haier HNSB02 model which has a capacity of just 1.7 cubic feet – plus still includes a freezer compartment.
Haier Mini Refrigerator Holds Milk & Juice Cartons
Underneath the wire baskets there is a clear plastic tray sitting at the bottom of the Haier fridge door. This is big enough to hold milk or juice cartons.
It’s fit for purpose, although does rattle slightly well closing the door on the Haier HNSE032 compact fridge. This is compounded further if you have loose soda cans in the wire frames – but don’t let that put you off.
At this best price though you should not really expect high design quality so we can overlook that slight annoyance.
Haier Compact Refrigerator with 3.2 Cubic Feet Capacity
Inside the small refrigerator there’s enough room to satisfy the needs of one person’s food storage requirements. With two shelves and one lower compartment you can easily store jars and packets – and the shelves can slide out to be cleaned whenever necessary. You can adjust the height of the shelves to suit as there are grooves built into the side of the Haier mini refrigerator with freezer.
It’s worth noting that the Haier fridge is not quite deep enough to hold a large pizza box – which might be a consideration if you are looking to buy a cheap dorm fridge with freezer.
Ideal Cheap Dorm Fridge with Freezer
The freezer section is built-in to the top of the Haier mini fridge compartment and is accessed via a pull down plastic door. The plastic itself is not the sturdiest in the world and excessive pulling on the hinges could lead to damage over time – so being heavy handed during operation should be avoided.
We would advise that you defrost the Haier HNSE032 compact refrigerator every six months, because our experience tells us that over time there can be some frosting and ice overlapping the freezer shelf. This is a common problem with most compact refrigerators though so don’t let that put you off if you want to buy Haier fridge freezers.
Next to the freezer section you will find a circular thermostat which will let you set the temperature to your preferred setting. It might be worth turning the freezer coldness down if you experience excessive frosting – this will be best achieved on a trial and error basis.
Annual Running Costs of the Haier HNSE032 Compact Refrigerator
In terms of how much the Haier compact fridge costs to run every year, then you are looking at around $35 Dollars annually. The Haier HNSE032 running costs are very low and the energy savings are helped by the fact that is has foam insulated lining within the mini-fridge’s walls.
Considering the low price of under $150 Dollars and the annual running costs then this would be the perfect fridge to have in a garage, small apartment, or for a student living away who wants an affordable and cheap dorm fridge with freezer.
Haier HNSE032 Review – White Refrigerator Conclusion
Given the bargain price and the features listed in our Haier HNSE032 review we are pleased to give this cheap compact refrigerator a very impressive score of 4.5 stars out of 5. We love the fact that’s it easily portable (due to the relatively light-weight construction) and the addition of a mini-freezer compartment. For people wanting a small additional mini-fridge for another room, a small apartment, under a kitchen counter, or as an affordable dorm fridge freezer then the Haier HNSE032 really does deliver.
