It lasted less than 6 months.

We keep our home at 70 degrees, so it isn't like the cellar is operating in a high temperature environment where it would be more difficult to cool.

The only thing I can do at this point is NEVER again buy a Cusinart product or recommend one to a friend.

While the description says it stores 8 bottles, either 750 or 1500 ml, it is a tight fit for whites, some reds did not fit, and champagne bottles will only fit if one rack is removed. In the picture it looks like the bottom rack is designed to accommodate fatter champagne bottles, but actually the unit that's shipping has 4 identical racks. The lowest temperature is 45F, not 39F. Those are the quibbles. The appearance is great, and it is extremely quiet. I like it so well, even with the demerits, that I bought another for better reds and dessert wines. The two units fit side by side on the kitchen counter, under the cabinets, with 1/4" to spare. After I bought the first unit, I happened to read a number of negative reviews, including the ominous ones about it breaking down within the first year. I sure hope that doesn't happen, because I like the unit. And those fat champagne bottles are still happy in the vegetable drawer of the refrigerator.

Size Name: 8 Bottle Verified Purchase
Worked great for about 6 months. Held a constant temperature that was only 2 or 3 degrees off what the readout displayed. Then in the 7th month, I noticed the fan was laboring and the inside temp was getting higher. Been about a year now and it hasn't died on me yet but I don't think it has much time left. If you could get it for like $100, I would recommend it. But for what I paid, I don't plan on replacing it when it finally kicks and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. That being said, it's a much much better value then any other cellars I looked at that were twice the price or more and had terrible reviews.

This is my 3rd, yes 3rd Cuisinart wine cellar. The first one I received as a wedding gift. It leaked and died after one year. I called Cuisinart and they gladly replaced it, with me paying the $50 shipping fee to return it.

Wine cellar #2 sounded like an airplane was taking off and suddenly spiked to 85 degrees ruining a $200 bottle of wine. Another $50 return shipping fee.

Wine cellar #3, the 1600, looked good, didn't make much noise and seemed to hold a steady temperature. Until one day when I noticed the blue light had gone off and went to turn the power back on. Nothing. It lasted less than 6 months.

Cuisinart is now refusing to replace it because it's out of the original 3 year warranty. Apparently the warranty on the original machine is the timeline that they use. Nevermind that it is absolutely ridiculous to have to go through 3 wine cellars in 3 years. The customer service was incredibly disappointing and now I am left with a dead cellar.

Cuisinart did offer to sell me a new one at reduced cost. Hmmm...isn't that the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results? Buyer beware.

My wife and I were excited about our Cuisinart CWC-800 purchase...up until we plugged it in. Neither of us is particularly noise sensitive, but this unit's fan motor is loud! We can hear it laboring away from the other side of our home.

It isn't a grinding sound, nor is it necessarily that type of noise where you'd suspect a motor is on its last legs. There's just a noticeably loud whirring. Much louder than the whirring sounds emanating from the full-size refrigerators in the kitchen and the garage. Furthermore, the fan motor rarely cycles off. It's as if it struggles to maintain the 47 degrees we have it set to. We keep our home at 70 degrees, so it isn't like the cellar is operating in a high temperature environment where it would be more difficult to cool.

In addition, the drip tray installation is a head-scratcher. It can only be slid halfway into its specified slot, with the other half sticking out the back. The instructions are vague and there isn't a photo that clearly illustrates how the tray looks when installed.

I called Cuisinart's customer service to inquire about the noise and the drip tray. I was "greeted" by a somewhat unfriendly and impatient rep who seemed more concerned about his phone metrics than assisting me. He advised moving the cellar to a different location to see if that remedied the noise problem. His answer for the drip tray was that he couldn't help since he couldn't see it! That was enough for me, so I ended the call and decided to call the following day in hopes of getting a more helpful rep. In the meantime, I did try moving the cellar to a different location, but as I suspected, it didn't affect the noise volume.

The call to customer service the next day was much like the first, unfortunately.

5/6/11 Update:

I have treated this wine cellar very well, left lots of space around the back, and kept the temperature at a very reasonable 59 degrees. It died on me after about 2 months of use.

I have to decrease my review from 3 stars to 1 star. I have Cuisinart the benefit of the doubt with all their instructions and requirements, but this unit is just not built well for very reasonable usage.

I do not recommend this wine cellar to anyone.

For that matter though, I have not found a wine cellar in this size that seems to work well, so I do not think I am going to replace it with any other brand right now.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update:

I've now determined that the coldest my cellar will get is 52 F. The ambient room temperature in my room is 74 F. This is in line with the chart Cuisinart provides, but it is a bit disappointing. I think they should have put a bit more powerful of a cooling system in this unit.

Here is the chart Cuisinart provides for the coldest internal wine cellar temperature given room temperature:

Approx. Room Temp --- Approx. Internal Wine Cellar Temp.
68 F --- 45 F
70 F --- 46 F
72 F --- 48 F
73 F --- 50 F
75 F --- 52 F
77 F --- 54 F

If your room temperature is ever higher than 77 F, I would definitely not recommend this product. If it is lower than 77 F, then you have to consider what temperature you are ok with keeping your wine at.

Since at this point, the cooling mechanism is probably running continuously for me, I would not be surprised if this product only lasts a few years.
