- it's compact, looks MUCH better in person than the picture posted here
- easy to set up, plug and play
- has 5 shelves for 4 bottles each
- temperature can be controlled from the outside with digital controls (ranges from 54 degrees to I think 62 degrees)
- has a blue light on the inside that can be operated from the outside (looks nice, but not very useful)
- perfect size for some like me who's not looking to go crazy on a large professional grade cellar, but still cares abut the select wines purchased
- shelves are removable but this doesn't serve any purpose because removing even 2 shelves will not allow for a larger bottle to be stored vertically (a bottle shouldn't be stored vertically anyway)
- reasonably quiet. It does have a hum to it that takes a day or so to get used to.
- price is unbeatable for a good looking small-medium sized cellar
The not so good:
- The shelves are perhaps just an inch too close to each other. I personally don't think they are flimsy, they are fairly standard and hold up well when the cellar is fully loaded. However, they do seem to feel heavy if a heavy bottle is inserted. So far they seem to be holding up fine.
- This is a lightweight portable wine cellar.Read more ›
This unit looks nice but the racks are flimsy. With my central air set to 70 and the cooler set to 60 the fan ran consistently for a few hours, before settling down. Every now and then it kicks on and has a bit of a hum, but it is not distracting. I would rate it at 4-star as it serves its purpose, MINUS THE HUGE exception below, however the quality is slacking a bit.
The description says it holds 20 "standard" bottles. I don't know what their "standard" bottle size is, but you would be hard pressed to shove even 20 Bordeaux bottles in here. Most of my fine wines are Burgundy's and Syrah's. I was able to cram a case of Pinot Noir in here by removing a shelf and alternating bottles front to rear. When you put a larger bottle in here, the cheap wire racks flex taking up room from the next row. You certainly cannot fit a bottle of Syrah in here. Removing a bottle crammed in here will tear the label. Nothing is more embarrassing than a torn label on a $200 Pinot Noir when you are entertaining company or BYOB a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion.
If you are storing a few cheap wines in "standard" bottles, this will suit you well, however, for your collection of fine wines, you will have to sacrifice 40% of the stated capacity.
I have now owned this fridge for 3 years and it is still running strong. The temperature display went out at about 4 - 6 months, but putting a thermometer in there shows it is still keeping a consistent temperature.Read more ›
Then the not so good: yes, it is quiet but it does make a very soft moaning noise when cooling - not a problem for me but could be for some.
But things you really need to know about before you purchase:
1. It does not remember the set temperature if it loses power, but resets to 52 degrees. I don't want to keep wine that cold, just want to control temperature fluctuations, and I keep it set to 60 degrees so a bottle of red is (almost) drinkable straight out of the cooler. Something to be aware of if you have frequent power outages.
2. And the big one - only Bordeaux-style bottles (or smaller) fit. A few Burgundy-style bottles can be squeezed in one or two per shelf but the overall width is too narrow for a full shelf of four bottles, but some bottles are too big to fit at all without removing a shelf and reducing the number of bottes it can hold. I can live with that, storing mostly Bordeaux, but this would be a fatal flaw for many prospective purchasers and it does seem a pity when an extra inch in height and width would make such a difference.
So overall I am pleased and would buy it again - great value for money - but if you want to store many Burgundy-style bottles think again.
