The Haier HNSE05 refrigerator is a counter-high model with 4.6 cubic ft of space. At around $160, it’s one of the cheaper mini-fridge models available. The feature set on the Haier HNSE05 is fairly standard: Energy Star rated, adjustable glass shelving, large door bins, small freezer section & can dispenser on the door. It is available in white, black (HNSE05BB) and stainless steel (HNSE05SS). As with most of these compact refrigerators, the freezer section is definitely small – just large enough for a few ice trays.
Because of the low price, it’s hard to rag on the Haier HNSE05 too much. However, it does have some design flaws I need to mention. For one thing, I don’t think the space is used to its highest potential. The top shelf is so small next to the freezer, it can only hold something very small. The freezer door seems to jamb up with ice fairly often as well. Also, a fair amount of users had trouble with the HNSE05 breaking down not long after purchasing it. So, while I appreciate cheaper appliances in a lot of cases, I can’t say I fully recommend theÂ Haier HNSE05 model. I’m giving it a 3.5/5 star rating.
