I put a bottle in it for the first time last night and fired it up. The room temperature was 76 and I set it to cool to 55. The back of the device has fans to dissipate the heat so I made sure the chiller was clear of any obstructions on the counter. It took about an hour or so and the alarm went off indicating it was done. So, I removed the bottle (which felt really cold) and poured a glass (which felt like room temperature).
When I bough this item, I'd always wondered how these things manage to actually chill the wine inside all the way through and not just chill the glass. It seems that it should be agitated a little to ensure all the wine gets cooled.
So, the wine was still pretty warm.
For as much as this thing costs, and doesnt work, I'll stick with the fridge.
I'm returning this item to a local store (wasn't bought through Amazon) today after only one use. I'm not into devices and gadgets all that much, for reasons exactly like this. Much of the time they just don't work like they're supposed to.
I only recently had an occasion to use it (not being a frequent wine consumer). As another reviewer noted, it took almost a hour to chill a bottle from "room temperature" of 77 degrees down to 55 degrees on the first bottle I tried. When "ready," only the bottom third of the bottle felt the least bit cool. The top still felt warm to the touch. The bottle is held in the chiller on a slant, so the back was cool a little farther up the bottle; the front was not cool at all. The top cover does not seem to serve any purpose (like keeping in the cool air) at all. When I poured the wine, I discovered what I feared--it was still quite warm.
I tried a few days later with a different wine and it took about an hour and a half to chill to 43 degrees. This time, I turned the bottle every fifteen minutes, but the results were no better.
The library, although it lists reds and whites from several countries, and several different kinds of reds or whites under each country, seems only have about three or four preset temperatures, the best I can tell. One might as well just use 55 degrees for red and 43 for white and forget paying extra for a chiller with an extensive "library" of wine types to program in. Or, as has been observed, pop the bottle in the fridge for 30 minutes or the freezer for 15 and save the entire cost of this device.
Finally, although champagne is listed as one of the selections, there is no bottle of champagne that will fit in the receptacle. The appearance of the appliance is deceiving, as it does not have as much room inside as it appears from the outside.
Had I known all this, I would never have requested this item. Unfortunately, it's too late to return it.
