Engel Freezer Fridges

 

The Engel Freezer Fridge is the perfect accessory for weekend trips and expeditions. The Engel units offer convenient, transportable freezers/refrigerators that run very efficiently, minimizing power drain on vehicle batteries. Engel Freezer Fridges are light in weight, draw very low amounts of current, and operate at the extreme angles often encountered in planes, cars, trucks, small boats. Most Engel Freezer Fridges also make handy and reliable mini refrigerators or freezers for the garage or workshop because they run just as easily off 110 V AC circuits.

100% CFC-free, the Engel Freezer Fridges are powered by an advanced swingmotor design. The Engel "swing compressor" is internationally patented and is considered the most reliable compressor on the market today, as it contains only one moving part!  The swing motor is an electrodynamic reciprocating device that connects directly to the compressor's piston, providing great economy and allowing compact size, light weight, and efficient power consumption.  In fact, the Engel 45 draws just 2.5A at freeze. Temperature control settings ensure that the Engel Freezer Fridges will keep all your food chilled or frozen at your chosen temperature with ice-free operation.

To date, over 3 million Engel Freezer Fridges have been sold worldwide. Tested and proven in Australia, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East for over 35 years, the Engel's solid outer casing ensures outstanding performance and durability even in the most inhospitable and remote conditions. A combination of performance, durability, low power consumption, and consistent reliability has made Engel the world's premier brand in mobile refrigeration.

 

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30) $12

Quantity Add to cart

The Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler is a vacuum-insulated performance mug that will keep your beverages hot or cold in the harshest conditions. The Stainless Tumbler will keep ice frozen twice as long as the best plastic tumblers and will also outperform any other steel or titanium tumbler currently on the market. The Stainless Tumbler also has design features that make it a pleasure to use. The flip-top lid seals the tumbler liquid-tight to prevent spills, even when the contents are being shaken. The lid is grooved on the side and the top hole is very close to the edge for easier drinking. The narrow bottom fits a wide variety of different cupholders and the rubber base prevents the tumbler from skidding around on smooth surfaces. 30 oz. capacity. 8.5" tall and 4" diameter at the top.

Engel 17 Freezer Fridge

Engel 17 Freezer Fridge (MT17F-U1) $600

Quantity Add to cart

The Engel 17 Freezer Fridge is a small freezer-fridge suitable for smaller sport utility vehicles, minivans, and large passenger vehicles. All that is required is either a 12 V power supply in the vehicle or a 110 V power supply in the home to operate the Engel 17 Freezer Fridge. The volume capacity is 16 quarts, equivalent to 24 cans of soda.

Engel 27 Freezer Fridge

Engel 27 Freezer Fridge (MT27F-U1) $630

Quantity Add to cart

The Engel 27 Freezer Fridge is a small freezer-fridge suitable for smaller sport utility vehicles, minivans, and large passenger vehicles. All that is required is either a 12 V power supply in the vehicle or a 110 V power supply in the home. The volume capacity is 22 quarts, equivalent to 30 cans of soda. This unit is identical to the Engel 17 in length and width, but is approximately 4" taller in height. Thus, the Engel 27 really takes up no more room than the 17, weighs the same as the 17, and draws no more current than the 17, but offers greater holding capacity over the Engel 17. (Engel 27 shown at left; Engel 17 shown at right.)

Engel 35 Freezer Fridge

Engel 35 Freezer Fridge (MT35F-U1) $650

Quantity Add to cart

The Engel 35 Freezer Fridge is a medium-size freezer suitable for vehicles with larger cargo capacities than would suit the Engel 17 and 27 models. All that is required is either a 12 V power supply in the vehicle or a 110 V power supply in the home. The Engel 35's volume capacity is 34 quarts, equivalent to 54 cans of soda. Outer construction differs from the Engel 17 and 27 models in that this unit is covered with powdercoated steel rather than ABS plastic. We recommend The Engel 35 to those who have height limitations, such as in open-top Defenders with tonneau covers or Discovery owners who want to retain the use of their sliding cargo covers.

Engel MR040 40-Quart Freezer Fridge

Engel 40 Freezer Fridge (MR040F-U1) $640

Quantity Add to cart

The Engel 40 Freezer Fridge is based on Engel's best-selling MT45 Freezer Fridge. The Engel 40 features the Engel 45's ultra-efficient cooling system and nearly ideal size, but is encased in a more weather-resistant, all-plastic exterior that does not corrode and resists dents better than the steel-skinned units like the Engel 45. The Engel 40 is ideally suited to boaters and outdoor campers alike. The Engel 40's lid is conveniently reversible for easy access from either side to suit various mounting positions. The Engel 40 also features a small storage tray under the lid for small items such as bottle openers and camp cutlery. The Engel 40's lower corners are protected with large rubber bumpers. The Engel 40 now comes standard with a basket.

Engel 45 Freezer Fridge

Engel 45 Freezer Fridge (MT45F-U1) $670

Quantity Add to cart

The Engel 45 Freezer Fridge is a medium-size unit suited for vehicles with larger amounts of cargo space that can handle the slightly larger size and is our recommendation for most applications and vehicles. 99 out of 100 Engel Freezer Fridges we sell are the Engel 45. It's that popular for 4x4 use. The Engel 45 has the same length and width as the Engel 35, but is 4" taller in height. Thus, the Engel 45 really takes up no more room than the 35 and draws no more current, but offers greater holding capacity over the Engel 35 and accommodates taller bottles such as chardonnay, champagne, or tall water bottles without having to tilt the bottles. The Engel 45's volume capacity is 43 quarts, equivalent to 60 cans of soda. Our favorite Engel Freezer Fridge.

When transporting your Engel Freezer Fridge inside your vehicle, it should be secured. Avoid having to tie down your Engel by fitting a Transit Slide Lock to your cargo floor. Your Engel thereafter is quickly attachable and detachable from your cargo floor. Simply slide your Engel into position and it clicks in and locks down automatically. To remove just push the clip to release. The Transit Slide Locks are highly recommended from a safety point of view as they help prevent your Engel Freezer Fridge from shifting about in a vehicle or boat. The Transit Slide Locks are also very convenient as it is not necessary to tie down the Engel with straps and prevent access to the contents. A highly recommended accessory for your Engel Freezer Fridge, and completely compatible with Transit Bag. Available only for the Engel 17, 27, 35, and 45 Freezer Fridges. 35/45 Size will also fit the older ARB Freezer Fridge. Installing the Slide Lock

The Engel Storage Basket is similar to the old TwoZone Suspended Basket Set but is designed specifically for the Engel 35 and 45 Freezer Fridges (the TwoZone Suspended Basket worked in the Engel 35 and 45 but had to be tweaked slightly to fit because it was designed for the TwoZone extension). The Engel Storage Basket hangs suspended above the main basket and lets you segregate and organize the contents of your Freezer Fridge. You can protect delicate food items against damage as well as improve access to smaller food items. The Hanging Storage Basket is ideal for the Engel 45, as you can still stack 12 oz. cans in two-can columns below the bottom of the suspended basket. The Storage Basket slides easily to provide easy access to the entire lower level of your fridge.

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

The Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler is a vacuum-insulated performance mug that will keep your beverages hot or cold in the harshest conditions.

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

The 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler's design maximizes utility and convenience for the user.

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30) Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

Many tumblers don't have flip-top lids that seal, and many people don't even miss the flip-top. However, if your drink is such that you may want to shake it, the flip-top lid comes into its own. Do you have a cold fruit juice or a hot soup that has settled and should be shaken for greater enjoyment? What about mixed drinks? The Stainless Tumbler makes an excellent shaker. The flip-top lid comes in very handy. If you don't use the flip-top lid, then just leave it open. If you are the type who likes the flip-top and will use it, the flip-top will snap shut and snap open and will not flop around while you are drinking from the tumbler.

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

The lid mates to the body with large threads and there is a silicone gasket to make the lid liquid-tight. With the flip-top and the lid threaded on, the tumbler is liquid-tight and will not spill over the roughest terrain.

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30) Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

The tumbler's body is stainless steel and double-wall insulated.

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

Engel claims tumbler will keep ice frozen more than twice as long as plastic tumblers and will also outperform by 6% any other tumbler on the market.

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

The 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler holds 30 ounces of liquid. That is a lot. In the 1980s, am-pm made a big deal about the size of its "Thirsty Two Ouncer" soda. And it was indeed big at the time. This tumbler is about as big as the Thirsty Two Ouncer. The tumbler is about 8.5" tall and 4" in diameter at the top.

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

The body does not taper gradually but rather steps down abruptly in diameter so that the tumbler will fit more cupholders. Engel claims that the tumbler will fit all cupholders, but this tumbler will not fit the factory cupholders in John's 110.

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

The tumbler has a non-slip base.

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

The 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler also has something that most tumblers do not. Note the perimeter of the lid under the flip-top and how the perimeter is grooved.

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

The groove is there for your mouth and makes for a very nice place for your mouth to rest against when you're drinking. The groove also makes the edge of the thin thinner and easier to drink from. Most insulated tumblers have thick walls and can be clumsy to drink from because the hole in the top is so far inboard of the edge of the tumbler. Engel solves this problem with the grooved edge,

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

and also with the thinness of the stainless steel body where it mates with the lid.

Engel 30 oz. Stainless Tumbler (ENGT30)

Thus, Engel put the lid hole as close to the edge of the tumbler as possible for easier drinking and less spilling.

Engel 45 Freezer Fridge

The rear and sides of the Engel fridges are vented for airflow to the swingmotor, enabling operation in even confined spaces.

Engel 35 Freezer Fridge

Here is a photo of the Engel 35. The Engel 35's volume capacity is 34 quarts, equivalent to 54 cans of soda. We recommend The Engel 35 to those who have height limitations, such as in open-top Defenders with tonneau covers or Discovery owners who want to retain the use of their sliding cargo covers. The Engel 35 holds more than two cases of sodas or beers, but is short enough that it can still be hidden under the factory cargo cover on the Discovery Series I or a tonneau cover on a Defender 90 Soft-Top.

Engel 45 Freezer Fridge

The cargo area of Ho's Discovery is usually filled with an Engel 45 and various Pelican Protector Cases. This shot is from the Fine Living Shoot, when Ho used the Engel 45 to supply cold drinks to the filming crew.

Engel 45 Freezer Fridge

This Disco2 is fitted with an Engel 45 and Transit Slide Lock, which is bolted to a plywood floor, which in turn is secured to the factory tie-downs with ratchet straps. This is a very nice set-up because no drilling of the cargo floor is required to secure the Transit Slide Lock. The plywood floor is covered with black carpet to match the Land Rover Genuine Parts rubber cargo mat that when not offroading. Also secured to the plywood floor is a PT-15 Power Tank and Pelican 1610 Protector Case. The Transit Slide Lock obviates the need to secure the Engel 45 with a ratchet strap and access to the Engel 45's contents is not compromised in any manner. The factory 12 V plug in the cargo area is modified to remain always-on, so that the ignition does not have to be keyed for the Engel to receive 12 V power and operate.

Engel 45 Freezer Fridge

The very clean set-up above was the inspiration for a similar set-up on this Disco2. The owner also used a plywood floor secured to the factory tie-downs, but used tan-colored carpet to match the factory carpet. Secured to the plywood floor is an Engel 45, Transit Slide Lock, and two Pelican 1610 Protector Cases. Also there but not visible in this photograph is the PT-10 Power Tank system. This is also a very nice set-up. Like the last truck, this truck features a hardwired factory 12 V plug in the cargo area so that ignition does not have to be engaged for the Engel to receive power.

Engel MR040 40-Quart Freezer Fridge

The new Engel 40 Freezer Fridge differs from the previous 35 and 45 designs in several ways.

Engel MR040 40-Quart Freezer Fridge

The Engel 40 features an ABS plastic body and lid. The plastic construction is designed for corrosion resistance in marine environments, lighter weight, and greater resistance to denting.

Engel MR040 40-Quart Freezer Fridge

The four bottom corners are reinforced with bumpers.

Engel MR040 40-Quart Freezer Fridge Engel MR040 40-Quart Freezer Fridge

The carry/transport handles are plastic as well.

Engel MR040 40-Quart Freezer Fridge

The Engel 40's lid is locked closed with two latches rather than one.

Engel MR040 40-Quart Freezer Fridge

The Engel 40's lid opens sideways and is reversible to suit different mounting locations.

Engel MR040 40-Quart Freezer Fridge

The variable thermostat control is located on the side of the Engel 40 rather than on top.

Engel 40 Basket

The Engel 40 now comes standard with the inner basket,

Engel MR040 40-Quart Freezer Fridge

but as you can see, the Engel 40 does not come standard with a green rubber floor pad like the Engel 35 and 45 models.

TwoZone Suspended Basket Set

The old TwoZone Suspended Basket Set was designed for the TwoZone extension. This basket set worked in the Engel 35 and 45, but had to be tweaked slightly to fit.

Engel Storage Basket (SB35)

The Engel Storage Basket is similar to the old TwoZone Suspended Basket Set but is designed specifically for the Engel 35 and 45 Freezer Fridges.

Engel Storage Basket (SB35)

The Engel Storage Basket hangs suspended above the main basket and segregates and organizes the contents of your Freezer Fridge. Place your smaller food items in the Storage Basket so that you do not have to go digging for them inside your fridge.

Engel Storage Basket (SB35)

The Storage Basket also protects delicate food items against damage. While two Storage Baskets will fit into the Engel 35 and 45, it is probably better to go with a single Storage Basket to facilitate access to the lower level of the fridge. The Storage Basket will slide back and forth easily to let you access the entire lower level.

Engel Storage Basket (SB35)

The Hanging Storage Basket is ideal for the Engel 45, as you can still stack 12 oz. cans in two-can columns below the bottom of the suspended basket. Wasted space is minimized in the Engel 45. This is yet another reason why the Engel 45 remains preferred over the other Engel models.

Engel 80 Freezer Fridge

The Engel 80 Freezer Fridge is the largest Engel unit currently available.

Engel 80 Freezer Fridge

The Engel 80's volume capacity is 84 quarts, equivalent to a whopping 118 cans of soda. We use our Engel 80 primarily as a shop fridge for holding junk food. The Engel 80's capacity is large enough that there are two separate baskets.

Engel 80 Freezer Fridge

Like the ARB 45 Freezer Fridge, the Engel 80 comes standard with an integral, digital thermometer.

Fresh Sandwiches From The Engel Freezer Fridge

With the Engel, there is no melting ice. Sandwich ingredients stay cold and fresh and dry.

Fresh Ingredients

Would you carry these ingredients in a cooler? The Engel makes elegant camping and dining possible.

Hot Breakfast Fresh Fruit Tart

Traveling with the Engel Freezer Fridge is another world compared to traveling without it.

Sushi - Engel 45

Ever had sushi on the trail? You can with an Engel Freezer Fridge.

Sushi - Engel 45

Bad sushi is worse than no sushi. An Engel Freezer Fridge can store fish as well or better than the best restaurant units.

Fresh Salmon - Engel 45 Fresh Octopus - Engel 45

These delicate ingredients could be stored in an ice chest, but do you want to risk it? They would stand a very good chance of getting waterlogged or spoiled if the ice melted. They're just fine in an Engel Freezer Fridge.

Fresh Engel Ingredients Fresh Engel Ingredients

With the Engel Freezer Fridge, such ingredients and, all of your ingredients for that matter, remain fresh and tasty for your next trail meal.

Duck Hunt

Though the Land Rover and Engel are eminently suited for fourwheeling, there is more to life than fourwheeling. Jack Quinlan regularly takes his Land Rover and Engel 45 on wingshooting trips.

Catch Of The Day - Engel 45 Catch Of The Day - Engel 45

Jack uses the Engel to store the fruits of the hunt. Jack bags the birds and stores them in the Engel, where the birds are kept fresh until they are taken home for cleaning and eating. No ice chest provides this kind of dry environment for the birds.

Wild Quail

The birds remain fresh until they are cooked and eaten.

Engel 45 Transit Bag

A highly recommended piece of gear for your Engel Freezer Fridge is the Transit Bag.

Engel 35 Transit Bag

The Transit Bag serves three primary functions. First, it protects your Engel from the inevitable knocks and scrapes with a cushion layer. Second, it supplements the Engel's own insulation and makes the Engel work more efficiently and cycle less often. Third, it features an inner reflective layer that offers heat protection from direct sunlight.

The outer layer of the Transit Bags is made of a high quality gray canvas and features an accessory pocket and ventilation holes. The Transit Bag covers the entire unit. Access to your Engel is easy - simply unzip the bag on top. The Transit bag is completely compatible with the Transit Slide Lock and will not interfere with the Lock's operation.

Engel 45 Transit Bag

This Range Rover Classic is fitted with an Engel 45, Transit Slide Lock, and Transit Bag. The owner has removed one of his rear passenger seats to make room for the Engel 45 and its appurtenances. Thus, he can access the Engel from the front seat (but not while driving of course) and his storage space in the cargo area is not compromised. This Engel 45 is hardwired to the battery and operates without the ignition keyed. This photo also shows the screen mesh on the portions of the Transit Bag that cover the vents for the unit's compressor. Fitment of the Transit Bag does not affect the unit's cooling.

Normally, the Engel should be strapped down to prevent a possible accident in a rollover or other collision. The ratchet straps used for this purpose work well enough, but are unsightly and relatively difficult to remove.

Engel Transit Slide Lock

To obviate the need to strap down the fridge, Engel makes a Transit Slide Lock. Installing the Slide Lock is very easy.

With the Slide Lock properly mounted, there is no need to strap down the fridge for regular use.

If you own more than one Engel Freezer Fridge but don't want to buy two separate Slide Locks, the Engel Slide Lock Feet are available separately. Or, you may want to secure something else to the Slide Lock, such as a Pelican Products Protector Case. Many other ideas will occur to you. The Slide Lock Feet are sold in a set of four feet and mounting fasteners are not included.

Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start

The most common question about the Engel is whether it will drain the vehicle's battery if the fridge is left on overnight. It won't. An Engel usually cycles only two or three times during most night temperatures. We have never seen an Engel drain the battery overnight. If you camp in one spot for several days, with the fridge baking in the hot sun and you're opening the fridge several times a day, then you might drain the battery. If you're worried about draining the battery, just get an Antigravity Battery Micro-Start for your glovebox. The Micro-Start is a very small personal power supply and will easily jump-start your vehicle several times on a single charge. The Micro-Start will also power and recharge your portable electronic devices like GPS, phones, laptops, etc. With a Micro-Start in your glovebox, you can rest assured that you can run your Engel any way you like for as long as you like and you can easily jump-start yourself if you find your battery flat.
