Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Lets you store opened bottles
This cooler can hold a total of 12 bottles of wine, certainly enough for casual wine drinkers or for those who are just starting their wine collection. Eight of the bottles are stored horizontally while 4 can be placed vertically. This allows unfinished bottles to be placed back in the fridge for storage - convenient if you don’t want to finish the bottle in one evening.
Pro The design is attractive and practical
This wine chiller will easily fit in the under-counter space because it's so narrow, even despite being quite spacious (12-bottle capacity). It also looks great: the black finish with the tinted curved door not only protects the wine from UV rays but also gives it a stylish, modern look.
Pro Efficient cooling
Instead of using a traditional compressor for cooling, this wine cooler uses a thermoelectric cooling system which vibrates less, runs more efficiently, and is quieter.
Pro You can set the temperature with high precision
This wine chiller has digital controls, so you can set a specific temperature inside. This is very useful for storing delicate wines, such as rose wines that are advised to be stored in a narrow 51 – 53º F range.
Pro It doesn't disturb the wine sediment
Some wines have harmless, yet often unpleasant sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Vibration-less thermoelectric cooler like this one makes sure that the bottle stays still and the dreg doesn't surface and get into your glass.
Con There's not enough space for large bottles
If you need to store particularly wide bottles, you may run into trouble. One solution could be to remove some of the shelves.
Con Interior light has a weird behaviour
The interior light works awkwardly as it automatically shuts off 10 minutes after closing the door, but if you want to activate it without opening the door, you need to hold the temperature control switch and then press the light switch.
Con Not great for different types of wine
Since this a one-zone cooler, it’s best used to store either just red or white wine because they require different temperature ranges.
Con It's sensitive to the room temperature
Unfortunately, thermoelectric systems are room temperature-sensitive, so this cooler will only be able to cool down the wine approximately 20-25 degrees below the ambient temperature.
