very pleased with the wine cooler and received it very fast!Read More
good value for the price. I was worried that it will be too loud but the noise level is acceptable. I do hear it but since there are no compressor like an ac unit or a refregerator it is a bit quieter. The manual states that it should run from room temp of 70 degrees. My living room is averaging at 80. The internal temp doesn't quite reach it's minimal settings. I guess that is due to the high external temp. both zones reach 53 degrees. The lowere temp zone should reach low 40's but hopefully during cooler seasons it actually reaches is.Read More
The fridge was the right size for our pantry -- but sleek & quite enough to keep in an open area, which is where it is until we move to our new house. When it first arrived, the top cooled to 44, but after a week or so doesn't go below 53. The bottom is at 54. This is fine for us as we don't drink whites regularly & I would pull a bottle and chill first anyway. Hold 18 bottles easily. I am happy with my buy. Good for the price.Read More
The wine color is quite, aesthetically pleasing to the eyes and the digital display and inside lighting add a special touch that makes the unit stand out in my wet bar.Read More
We own a vinyerard and winery and wanted a small wine cooler for our tasting room. We plugged this in in August of 2011 and it is now December of 2011. This cooler suddenly started making loud noises (so loud we cannot leave it plugged in.) It also emites an electircal smell so combined with the noise, tells us the motor is going. Overstocks return policy is 30 days, so we'll have to contact the warrenty to see if they will do anything. Would not reccomend you purchase this unless you are willing to take the risk that it will only work properly for a short time.Read More
This is a great wine cooler for the money. I purchased the cooler august of 2011, so I have been running it constantly for a year, during which time it has been completly full of wine. It is a pleasing unit, and I really like the temp settings on the top. It looks great sitting out in the open, ie not built into a bar or anything. I have not had one bit of problems with this, so perhaps the others just got bad units, it is quit and has no problems reaching internal temps. I keep my house 69 in winter and 71 in the summer, and at those settings, the upper chills to my setting and holds at 46 while bottom zone has no problems holding at 52. The one thing I do find annoying, is if the power blinks, the top zone where you keep whites, will reset to a neutral setting of 50 degrees, so you need to keep a check on it to make sure it did not reset during the night or while you were at work etc. I make my own wines, and found it extremely nice to keep a few bottles of each batch at a more constant and cooler temp than in my basement and ready to drink at a moments notice. As I write this review, I am drinking a glass of home made merlot that has been aging for one year, in the nice cool environment of this cooler. Its fantastic. I did hedge my bets and purchase a square trade warranty on this cooler just in case, but really it is running just as it did when plugged in a year ago. Would purchase againRead More

Best Wine Coolers for Your Home
Keep your favorite vintage cool and fresh for years to come and buy wine coolers for your home. Whether you want under-counter wine coolers to keep bottles at your fingertips or an electric wine cooler to store in your basement or pantry, the following suggestions will help you find the perfect storage options for your wine. Read on for tips on buying the best wine coolers for your home.
How to Store Wine
You don't need an expensive wine cellar to properly store wine. A basement or closet with a few wine racks can provide a sufficient wine storage area, or you can opt for a wine cooler. Wine coolers are small, temperature- and humidity-controlled refrigerators fitted with wine racks. Some wine coolers allow you to set different temperatures for different wines.
How to Store Wine in a Wine Refrigerator
Wine refrigerators, also known as wine coolers, are made to chill wine to the appropriate temperature. Regular refrigerators are subject to constant activity, which causes the temperature to fluctuate. This is not appropriate for wine, which must be stored at a constant temperature. While wine cellars are the best option for storing wine and are ideal for those with an extensive wine collection, wine coolers are affordable and adequate for those with a small collection of wines.
Wine Storage Tips
Keep bottles of your favorite wine fresh for years with the proper wine storage. Whether you need wine racks for your cellar or a wine storage refrigerator to preserve both red and white wines, home wine storage is available for both large and small spaces. Read on for tips on buying wine storage for your collection.
How to Pour Wine into a Decanter
Decanting wine is an easy way to bring a touch of elegance to your dinner table. Wine decanters aerate the wine more quickly than serving it straight from the bottle as well as help the wine to breathe properly before serving. Decanters and carafes come in all shapes and sizes and are beautiful vessels for showing off the color and aroma of wine.
Best Wine Accessories to Give as Gifts
If you know a wine enthusiast, then you should consider giving wine accessories as gifts. Wine accessories make great gifts for housewarming parties, gift-giving holidays and almost any celebration. If a bottle of wine isn't quite enough for your next gift-giving occasion, add wine glasses, bar sets or a wine rack. Wine gift baskets are also fabulous. Try one of these gifts the next time you want to impress.
Wine Rack Buying Advice
Whether you have a few wine bottles or fifty, you'll need a wine rack to store them properly and keep them fresh for years to come. With so many options to choose from, including wrought-iron wine racks and wall wine racks, you may be unsure of the right storage solution. This guide will provide you with tips on buying the wine storage racks that work best for your home and your wine collection.
Best Wine Storage Options for Small Spaces
When you live in a small home or apartment, but you still want to have a wine collection, you need innovative wine storage options. If your abode is on the small side, you just can't pop down to the cellar whenever you bring home a few new bottles. But even if your square footage leaves a bit to be desired, you can find the right wine racks for your space.
How to Buy Wine Racks
Although wine cabinets and cellars can be used for storing wine, wine racks are a better choice for keeping bottles at easy reach in a kitchen or dining room. Wine racks vary in size and material. Some mount on a wall while others sit on the table, countertop or floor. When buying a wine rack, there are many features to consider, including your overall room design and the space you have available.
