The digital zone functionality allows you to set storage between 41F to 60F in each zone, so you can set one for red and the other for white or set them all to the same temperature. The lighted display allows you to monitor your temperature without having to open the door. 10 shelves glide smoothly on ball-bearing tracks for easy access.

It has a finished cabinet which also allows it to look great as a freestanding unit in any room of your home. A cool blue glow illuminates your bottles, stylishly showcasing your wine while also remaining much cooler than standard bulbs.

So far, so good!

Comments:We use this wine refrigerator to store our red wines.

We have only had this refrigerator for about 2 weeks but so far we are pleased with our purchase. The shelves to pull out enough so you can see the labels on the wine. We like the fact that the shelves are wood instead of metal. We ordered the black door and the unit is very sleek looking.

Comments: We still have not received our first full electric bill so we don't know if the energy usage the manufacturer claims is accuraatge. The unit cycles on frequently but the noise is not loud. It quickly becomes background noise so you are not aware of it. So far the temperature seems to be holding well.

We were fortunate enough to be able to go to Beverage Factory and see and hear the unit before purchasing it. So far, all our contacts with Beverage Factory and the delivery company have been very satisfactory. Delivery was on time and the delivery person was patient to wait while we did a thorough inspection of the box. We did purchase a service contract and thought the deal that was offered to us was a "no brainer." We were told that if you don't need service during the term of the contract (5 years for us) you get half the money back you paid for the service contract. That's a great deal whether you need to use it or not.

After several years of researching the best wine refrigerator for our needs, we settled on the Allavino. We chose this one because it had decent reviews, held a good amount of bottles and looked nice.

NOTE: We were advised that the wine refrigerator should be on its own dedicated outlet. This is something any prospective buyer should check out with the knowledgeable sales people and/or the manufacturer.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Quiet, Sleek and Effective
by:Napa Nubie (11-13-2013)
New York, NY
Comments:Have only had up and running for a couple of weeks. Runs fairly quietly - the cycling on and off does create some refridgeration noise, but not much (I have it in my living room and I live in a 1BR apt). Temperature seems to be consistenly 2 degrees warmer than the temperature at which I set the device, so I compensate by setting it 2 degrees lower than I want it (set at 53 instead of 55 and temp usually settles around 55). Temp stays pretty solid within a couple degrees - seems to hold mainly at 55 (when set at 53) and will occasionaly go to 54 or 53. The wooden racks are decent quality lacquered wood and on nice smooth rolling ball bearing shelves. Haven't tried to fill to capacity yet (have about 23 wine bottles throughout and 6 champagne bottled on bottom rack), but appears that I will be able to get somewhere btwn 45-51 bottles in there (really depends on bottle size and shape). Overall, really like it thus far.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Fabulous Wine Cooler

Silence would be golden!
by:Lind (10-30-2013)
Palm Harbor, FL
Comments:Get ready for some intermittent noise! The unit goes through three cycles. 1) Dormant 2) Interior circulation fan every 20 seconds which is very mild and not bothersome 3) Compressor cooling fan that kicks on every 20 minutes (this may be dependent on ambient temperature which in my case is 76 degrees) and is louder than I would have expected. For comparison, the two traditional refrigerators in my home (equipped with compressor cooling fans as they all do) make far less noise. The rack system is ok but could be better. I read where someone fastened 90 degree moldings as side rails and I can see where this would really take the unit up a few stars on a rating scale. Other than that the unit keeps wine cool. The funny part is when I called The Beverage Factory to inquire about the noise from the compressor cooling fan, I was asked to email a recording of the noise. I did not bother.
Bottom Line:
 
Allavino MWR-541-SSL Bottle Wine Cooler
by:Albert (10-14-2013)
Boynton Beach, FL
Comments:Our wine cooler arrived on time and as described on line. It replaces a GE Monogram cooler. We were thinking of repurchasing a GE, but at half the price of a GE, we thought we would give Allavino a try. It is an under-the-counter installation.

It has more features than the GE (wood shelves, temperature readout, etc.) We particularly like the blue interior light.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Great Value

Comments:I recently purchased the 51 bottle wine refrigerator. I have only had it a couple of months, it does cycles on and off fairly often, but I am not finding the noise to be an issue for me.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Happy Customer

Comments:I had read many reviews on wine units prior to purchasing.I was mostly concerned with the noise. I just installed the MWR-541-SSR in my bar area, noise is not an issue. I did have to remove one rack to store some of my larger bottles of wine.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
