Most mini fridges just use a fairly low power peltier element in order to cool their insides. This is fine for their intended purposes, but not really much good for what you want to do.

It's also no biggie to have solder used in the construction, as long as you use coolant that has anti-corrosive additives. Pressurised hot water systems do this all the time, and typically run at 14-28 PSI with no issues for years on end.
