I put a bottle of room temperature Chablis in, and selected Chablis from the list of white wines. The unit said it would chill it to 46 degrees, and indicated that the starting temp was 77. That was my first concern, because the bottle was room temperature, and room temp was 70. The unit took more than 30 minutes to get the bottle to the desired temp (according to the units thermostats), but when I opened the bottle, the wine was probably a bit warmer than a pinot should be served at. I turned the unit off, placed the bottle back in (using the accompanying sleeve both time, btw), and this time the starting temp read 61 degrees. In other words, it disagreed with itself...
Soo...I chilled it again, for another 20 minutes, and upon reaching 46 (again) the bottle was no cooler than it was before.
I don't understand how these are selling. They are probably good for bringing room temp reds down to the appropriate serving level, but this simply does not chill white, rose, or sparkling wines to the desired temperature. So it's great, I suppose, for someone who doesn't have a wine refrigerator, or a cellar, but who wants to drink red wines at the appropriate temperature. It's terrible for anything other than that.
This is as disappointed as I've ever been with a product before.
Too bad there is not a way to give zero stars.
Instead, the value of this machine is that it finds and maintains the wine's OPTIMUM temperature it within a narrow band. Choose your wine (though the library is not comprehensive, you can always find an appropriate facsimilie), and it will get cooler until it reaches your setting's temperature. If you want white or sparkling wine, chill it first in the fridge (or freezer if you're in a rush), then plunk it in there and let if find the ideal temperature.
It's a fun, simple, and wine-enhancing gift. The difference in temperature makes a big difference in the pleasure of enjoying wine.
As another reviewer noted, wine from my wine fridge (56 deg.) registered as 74 deg. when placed into the unit; wine at room temp (72 deg.) regularly registered 78 deg. or so. Although the unit ran through it's cycle and indicated wine had been chilled to the proper temperature it never was. In fact, if you put the bottle back into the unit immediately and started it again it would register a temperature about 10 degrees warmer than it had indicated just seconds earlier.
I tried about half-a-dozen times over a couple days, but it never worked properly.
We returned the unit to the store for credit.
The bottom line is that it does what it says it does. It chills or warms room temperature wine to its desirable temperature. What advertisements do not disclose is that it takes at least 15 minutes to bring a wine's temperature from 70F degrees to 64F, and at least 2 minutes per degree to continue lowering it (according to the cooling guide included in the instruction book; your results may vary). However, as you get into the lower temps, it requires more time per degree to cool it (as much as 5 min. per degree, once you get down to the 50s and 40s). Keep in my mind that "room temperature" varies, since people are different and keep their thermostats set at different temps. My point is that just as the old saying goes, "good things come to those who wait" and for those who make a little extra preparation. We store all our wines, red and white, in a wine fridge at about 55 degrees. I think this may be one of the reasons we have so much success with the PC100. It doesn't take as long to warm or cool, because it doesn't have very far to go. As other reviews have indicated, if you don't want to wait all night for your wine to reach the ideal temp, you should put it in the refrigerator or freezer for a time, depending on how cold you want it. If you bring home a 70F degree bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and pop it into the PC100, you're going to be waiting at least an hour and fifteen minutes for it to reach 45F degrees. You can substantially cut this time down by putting it in the freezer for 20 minutes.Read more ›

Yes, it can chill a warm wine and even warm a cold wine from the fridge. So it is more than just a chiller. Read morePublished 2 days ago by 505 Taste
We've been using this item for 2+ years now and it's always worked great. No issues at all.Published 24 days ago by ROBERT B.
I just bought this product because I love Pinot Noir and drinking it at 59 degrees.
Con: This product does not chill faster than a freezer when the bottle is room temp. Read more
a product that does not meet my expectations .. takes forever to cool .. all the same to use the fridgePublished 3 months ago by Adriana Santa
Takes a lot longer than stated to chill wine. It's ok I guess. I would probably by a small cabinet type chiller and skip this.Published 3 months ago by ncballplayer
This product was a huge disappointment! It makes so much noise and takes so long to get cold, that we have actually given it away.Published 6 months ago by John R.
