I'm very happy with it but it is an "odd" size. It is sitting on a buffet table and somewhat "sticks out like a sore thumb". Not suitable to sit on the floor by itself. Too tall and bulky to place on the kitchen counter. However, it does serve the purpose, works well and appropriate for a farm/vacation house.
I've had this for about six months now. It's my first wine cooler. I shopped around and this was a good value. It plugs in right out of the box. The only thing you have to do is attach the handle with two screws - very easy. The overall design is nice, the back lighting gives a sleek look. The controls are very easy. The unit is also very quiet.
I wasn't sure about this cooler because I did not know anything about the manufacturer I have had this for 6 months and love it. The surface does not appear to be stainless, but the material is great because there are no fingerprints! It is very quiet and the temperature is what it says it is. I would recommend this cooler.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was fine... a lighter, but nice.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is great for the price.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Excellent.
I was looking for a small wine cooler for my NY apt and found it. Unfortunately, I didn't measure it prior to buying, but that is my fault. I thought I could put it under my kitchen cabinets, but it's too big for that, it's currently on the corner of my floor. It's extremely quiet and serves its purpose. I would definitely recommend it.
I already wish I had bought a larger wine fridge. But, for the money, this is probably the most attractive 12-bottle wine fridge I've seen. Solidly constructed, and looks even better in person. It operates quietly. The panel is easy to operate. And the fridge reached my programmed temperature quickly. It comes with a small guide, showing ideal temperatures for different wine types. It was also packaged very well to avoid damage, while being easy to remove from the box.
I had researched refrigerated wine storage for some time. I just happened to look on Overstock and Boy am I glad I did. This piece was $300 cheaper than any I had found so far. The appliance came in good condition and on time. It is modern and attractive . Very stream line and perfect for small areas. Keeps perfect temperature. The only problem is with chiati bottles that are wider at the bottom than other wine. They go in if you pull the rack out all the way but that is not enough of a hinderance to warrant not buying. This is a great product. I highly recommend it.
I have never heard of SPT brand, but my sister in-law insisted on buying me a Christmas present. I told her I needed a new wine cooler and she gave me the funds for this one. It arrived in a matter of days and I set the temperature I wanted the wines to cool at and it is quiet and performs well There is a light inside the unit which is a wasted feature as it does not light up enough to see the labels.
I purchased this for my fiance as a Christmas gift and it did not work from the moment we took it out of the box. He went back and forth with the manufacturer to see if there was anything he could do to fix it and they sent another fan to see if that would resolve the issue but it unfortunately did not. We ended up tossing the entire cooler, total waste of money.
Great buy for the money. This is a thermoelectric unit that doesn't get as cold as standard refrigeration, but it does the job to keep wine well kept for guests and to age a few bottles of good reds. It will get down to about 54 at a room temperature of 72, but I keep it set at 59 which is good enough for preserving wine and it doesn't run too much at that setting.
