MicroFridge® Program


MicroFridge® is a product of Intirion Corporation. Intirion, focuses on the development of products for small space living environments. MicroFridge® was invented in 1987 to solve the problem of overloaded circuits at colleges and universities, hotels, military facilities and assisted living residences. MicroFridge® offers a safe and convenient food storage and preparation solution in an integrated compact appliance. The Safe Plug® technology uses about half the electricity of 2 separate appliances and reduces the risk of circuit overloads. With one plug to the wall operation, it frees up outlets since just one plug goes into the wall socket to operate the refrigerator, freezer and microwave oven.

MicroFridge® developed a Dual Charging Station located on the front of the microwave to address the ever-growing need to conveniently re-charge personal electronic devices. Using the Safe Plug® power management system, energy is allocated to the Dual Charging Station as well as the refrigerator and microwave to solve the problem of overloaded electrical circuits.

Only one unit is allowed per room. For more information and ordering please click here.
