September 2020, Australia: My Generator is a prominent supplier of RV equipment and power generators in Australia. They offer a wide range of portable fridge brandscaravan generators, and other appliances & accessories. The company is giving an expert review by the on how to choose between the Dometic CFX3 range and the Engel MT-V range:

When you want to purchase a camping fridge, you have to think of various factors such as the purpose of usage, budget constraints, etc. The other factor that you look at is brand. Dometic & Engel are amongst top brands in this category. There are two main types of fridges that you will come across when you set out for purchasing. They are the new Dometic CFX3 and Engel MT-V Fridges.

Innovation and technology have been the strengths of Dometic over the years and Engel fridges are known for their durability of portable fridges. When it comes to capacity, Dometic’s CFX3 range comprises of single-zone and dual-zone models with sizes 36-94 litres. Whereas, Engel fridges include combi models with sizes from 32-80 litres.

In Dometic CFX3, have two independently temperature-controlled zones. This means you can set one as a fridge and the other as a freezer or both as freezers or fridges as per your requirement. Whereas Engel fridges have only one temperature control. The cold air flows from the main compartment into the other. That means Engel fridges are normal fridges without convertible feature.

If we talk about the build quality of these Fridges, Dometic uses polypropylene and Engel uses metal. As Engel fridges are made from metal, they are heavier than Dometic models. Dometic CFX3 models contain a WAECO compressor. Every model encompasses the latest Variable Motor Speed Optimization ‘VMSO3’ compressor that enables speed alteration. The VMSO3 compressor is combined with active gasket technology to hold cool air and ensure less power-consumption. Engel fridges comprise the Sawafuji Swing Motor with one moving part, which makes them long-lasting.

Other features include Dometic’s Bluetooth/Wi-Fi enabled models, USB ports, and a smartphone app to use the fridge. The CFX355IM model has a fitted ice maker, a world first in camping fridges. Meanwhile, Engel fridges consist of a switch for the interior LED light, lockable door latch and solid reinforced baskets. Both the fridge ranges have 5-year warranties with national service agent support. Engel is a little expensive when compared for value addition, such as a cover or icebox that comes free with the fridge.

My Generator suggests that if one prefers a high-technology fridge, they must choose Dometic. If a more durable fridge is required, one must go for Engel.
