The Allavino 2X-MWR-542-SSR 102 Bottle Multi-Zone Wine Cellar is an excellent choice for anyone needing a little versatility in their wine storage. Because it is made up of two dual zone units, It's four independently controlled temperature zones effectively store white wine, red wine or both! This front-venting unit is perfect for recessing into kitchen and bar counters. It is also makes a handsome space-saver as a freestanding unit in offices and apartments. Upper Zones: 41-50F; Lower Zones: 50-64F. Set storage and service temperatures for both red and white wine. Use the Upper Zones for white service and the Lower Zones for red and white storage, or use any combination to store reds and whites. "Red", "White," and "Sparkling" indicator lights allow you to monitor temperatures at a glance. 10 shelves glide smoothly on ball-bearing tracks for easy access. Smartly spaced to fit 102 Bordeaux (regular) size bottles. The shelves are easily removable to accommodate larger bottles, including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Champagne.

It has a finished cabinet which also allows it to look great as a freestanding unit in any room of your home.

Money well spent
by:Usch (10-26-2014)
Macon, GA
Comments:It has been in use in my kitchen for 1 week now and works as advertised. Of course, Chardonnay bottles barely fit in between the shelves , but the shelf width is still accommodating 8-9 bottles. Dual temp zones hold true temperatures. Only drawback is the frequent and loud compressor activity, but to
Enable in my kitchen.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Nice Wine Fridge
by:David (05-27-2014)
Boston, MA
Comments:The fridge came pretty quickly and I set it up. Seemed bigger than I thought but I measured and it is exact same dimensions as my dish washer and therefore will fit in one cabinet space if need to.
Have only had it for about 2 weeks and seems to be working as advertised. Fan kicks on about every 10 mins or so but it isn't bad. Quieter than my regular fridge but not super quiet. I had hoped it would be whisper quiet and it isn't.
Shelves look and work great. Just need more wine to fill it up now!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Rocks!!
by:DGyo (05-05-2014)
NO, LA
Comments:This is the third under counter wine cooler I've owned and definitely the best! I called to ask about a "scratch and dent" and the customer service dude told me it would be cool, but only a 90 day warranty. He then offered me a NEW one at 35% off. I live in New Orleans and I was afraid it wouldn't reach the lowest temp-but it does. BTW folks who think this thing is loud must live in suburbia! Ya you right!!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Comments:We have had this installed under cabinet for almost a year now. Very quiet, and maintains great temperature. The shelves accomodate different size bottles. It is very attractive installed in our kitchen. We live in San Diego so we were able to go to the store and pick ours up. The sales people there were very helpful.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

by:Shaun (12-06-2013)
Central Valley, CA
Comments:great product, good delivery. The fans tend to come on quite often, although not super noisey they can be distracting if the unit is in a family room
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Looks good, easy to install...
by:Mark (11-27-2013)
Arvada, CO
Comments:We installed this unit 10 days ago. This unit looks good and is easy to install. It is a welcome look to the buffet-like area of cabinets in our kitchen, dining and great room space. Shelves slide out 2/3 of the way out for easy access to the bottles in the back. The bottom shelf doesn't slide out but allow you to put in the big 1.5 liter bottles in there.
Reds go in the bottom, white in the top. Counterintuitive since warm air rises and cold air sinks. The lower area needs to be set at least 4 degrees higher than the top. This is fine. My concern is that the compressor/blower comes on often as is louder than I like. It's the sound a microwave oven makes but not quite as loud but close. Is this normal for it to run so often? I don't know. Is the compressor on often due to poor insulation in the cooler case? I don't know. I wouldn't mind it running so often if it wasn't as loud. That's the only disappointing part about this unit, thus 3 stars. Yes, it bother me. The other reviews did not mention it having this humming noise. I wonder if I got a bad unit. We've had this for nearly two weeks, plenty of time to give the unit a chance to acclimate. I am going to phone customer service to discuss what can be done about this. I will repost a follow up after discussing this with them.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Replacing Cheaper Model
by:K. Schultz (03-29-2013)
Riverside, RI
Comments:My previous wine refrigerator was inexpensive and died shortly after the warranty. I am very impressed with this Allavino. The construction and styling are much nicer. The glide mechanism on the shelves is very smooth and fully extends out. Every feature on this model is an improvement over the cheaper model. The digital controls are well designed and the temperature is very consistent.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
51 Bottle Wine Cooler
by:H Adrian (03-07-2013)
Austin, TX
Comments:The wine cooler is very attractive and has pull out wooden shelves that make it easy for me to take out my wine. It seems to keep the wine at a good consistent temperature. The fan turns on every once in while to keep the temperature range more consistent. It can be a little noisy. That is my only negative. It is in my kitchen and it is not louder than my regular refrigerator.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Its what I expected
by:T. Shirah (02-04-2013)
Bayport, MN
Comments:It works as described. My main issue is the tightness of the racks for some of my bottles. Overall happy with the bottle count. The temperature control is easy to set both ranges. Good model for the price
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
