This wine rack is one of the best items that I have purchased from O.com. It's small enough to fit into a corner on the counter but the right size to stand alone. Absolutely love the temp control. So far, perfect for keeping the wine at the right temperature. I expect to keep no matter what size the cellar may become.
This is my first purchase of a "wine cooler" and in retrospect, I'm not sure if the concept is sound. Apparently, wine coolers do not chill wines down to a temperature that one would want to serve white wines at. They only cool to 54 degrees F (this is the traditional temperature British ales were served at and described as "warm beer". The only use I can see for these coolers is to maintain the quality of bottled wines for several years' storage. For champagne and white wines, one still has to pop them in the fridge. This particular model is poorly designed in that the racks have insufficient height and house only the narrowest of bottles - - champagne and the slightly broader diameter bottles don't fit without forcing up ;the row above. Just half an inch more height on each row would solve the problem. Go figure!
I purchased this item for the bar area of my apartment. The space is small as I use it as a bar area with a custom made bar I had made for it and the space available I had required that I find a wine cooler small enough to fit under the bar and could hold 12 bottles. Not only is it the perfect apartment size the cooler keeps the wine at the ideal temperature. What I love about it that it has a feature that it adjusts the temperature accordingly if the apt gets too warm.
