Great Wine Fridge and very good Value
by:Todd (04-04-2019)
los altos, ca. 94022
Comments:We had a 50 bottle wine fridge and the unit worked fine but was very hard to use. It was a Kenmore and the shelves were very difficult to pull out as well as they were not very deep. We found we could only fit about 30 bottles in it at any time.

My wife wanted to upgrade and we looked for a long time with most decent units pricing out around $2500. A critical feature we needed was shelves that were smooth to pull out, on rollers or ball bearings .

We also wanted a quiet unit and one with shelves DEEP enough to put two bottles in depth wise.

This unit arrived and we LOVE IT.
Quiet, sleek looking and works perfectly . The shelve are a dream and my wife was so excited she wished we had gotten it years ago.

Every time my wife takes a bottle out of this fridge, she says "ahhh" instead of "^%&^^%$" the damm shelves don't work."

Its a great unit at any price but an EXCEPTIONAL unit at this price ! Wow

Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Good unit, maybe not for expensive wines
by:Patrick (03-16-2019)
Atlanta GA
Comments:This is our first large capacity wine cooler and are so far pleased with it after 5 days of use. The shelves are good and solid, and allow for easy placement of varying bottle sizes. Some of the real larger ones, I have turned the labels toward the sides as they do just barely scrap the shelf above.
The unit is placed in our Dining room where our old 30 bottle unit sat. It is fairly quiet, but louder than the old unit when the fan kicks on. We have an open floor plan from the Dining room to the Living room, so I do hear it running, but it's not annoying.
I would say though, that if you have expensive bottles that need to be kept at a steady temp, then this unit may not be for you. I have noticed some, what I consider to be, large temperature swings. I have seen the temp display ready 50 degrees and then 55 10 minutes latter. It dose seem to keep a steady temp of 53 which is where I want it. To keep the red wine temp, the lower section, set to 53, I have to set the thermostat to 51. Since you have to have at least a 9 degree temp difference between the upper and lower section, the upper section for our white wine is cooler than what I originally set it for.
So far, I am happy with it with my simple wine tastes.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Good but could be a little better.
by:Rex (02-19-2019)
Phoenix, AZ
Comments:The cooler is very nice. Well made, and the shelves slide very easy with almost no labels rubbing. The temperature isn't as stable as I would hope. The cooler seems to fluctuate sometimes up to 5 degrees and that isn’t good in my opinion. I have 125 bottles inside so it should be more stable but I see on the cooler WHITE side 5 degree fluctuation and the RED side only about 3 degrees change. The compressor seems to be quiet but you know when it is running, it isn’t loud but you can hear some fan noise. I have had this unit only 2 weeks but so far it seems ok.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
A Beautiful Peice of Functional Furnitur
by:Bob (12-14-2018)
FL
Comments:product cools precisely. I've put a thermocoupler in both zones and it reads less than 1 degree variance. The shelves slide in and out with ease and don't bow or sag when all the way out and fully loaded. The only small minuses are that it is a bit louder than what I read in reviews. I read "whisper quiet" and other such remarks. It is not loud, but it is a little louder than my home refrigerator. It is beautiful, well crafted and comes very well packed and it performs beyond expectation. I'll keep it forever!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
I bought 2
by:Debra (08-29-2018)
San Diego, CA
Comments:The product is very nice. The only thing is it doesn’t hold 170 bottles if you have anything other than the skinny 750 ml bottles. Also, if you buy call and ask for a discount. They don’t advertise it but will usually give you one. Also, the tempeture fluctuates a little but it’s with the range so it fine for me. If your really particular this might not be the wine fridge for you.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Great wine cellar!
by:DannyThe Wine-0 (04-14-2018)
Chicago, IL
Comments:I had another dual zone for 10 years and the compressor died. I replaced it with this dual zone based upon the features.
Pros:
It keeps wines cool to cold.
The space usage is great; if bottles don't fit on one shelf, it will on another.
Instructions on how to place the bottles are helpful.
Blue light is soft to the eyes.
The shelves move out slowly.
More space for odd-shaped wine bottles than other units.
The noise isn't too much when running (in the finished basement)
The towel handle was defective but it was replaced quickly by Beverage Factory.

Cons:
It does run loud when keeping cool, but it's not running all day.
The curved handle doesn't quite match the finish of the product, but few would notice it (but I do because I like things to be pretty perfect).
The towel handle was defective but was replaced. The "bushings" in the instructions didn't fit either.
The instructions for installation weren't helpful, and that's probably how the "bushings" didn't fit; maybe they weren't needed.
Got White Glove service; that didn't include putting the handle on.


In short, the cons are really small, but they may be significant for you.

Right now, I'm pleased with the product, service, and price and the features really outweigh the cons.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Efficient as well as decorative
by:Wino from Texas (09-21-2017)
North Texas area
Comments:This fridge does an excellent job at keeping the correct temperature to drink. Very easy to load with the different size bottles that we have. We are very pleased with the two temperature zones. Would have given 5 stars except it is a bit more loud than our previous model.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Lovely Wine Refrigerature
by:Debbie (06-04-2017)
Mission Viejo, CA
Comments:The wine refrigerator is beautiful to look at. The drawers are handy. It is a bit noisy when the motor turns on. Overall, I'm glad we bought it. I wish I could say the same about the customer service. We had major problems with the delivery of our system, but it all worked out in the end. I would suggest better communication in the future from the Customer Service department.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Great Appliance
by:MG (05-04-2016)
KCMO
Comments:I am storing 100+ bottles in this unit. The shelf space is wide enough to store any size bottle including those oversized pinot bottles. The unit is really quiet, much more quiet than a normal fridge. The temperatures fluctuate quite a lot, but if the unit is set properly you will not see any issues. I would definitely recommend this unit.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Perfect purchase!
by:Indiana wine drinker (01-28-2016)
Valparaiso, Indiana
Comments:After reading reviews and researching wine coolers I decided to buy this unit. It arrived in perfect condition a few weeks later. It fit perfectly in between two other refrigerators and it is the quietest of the three. Best of all, it holds all our wine perfectly! I also bought it on sale, Perfect!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Nicely made product
by:Bill (11-25-2015)
North Fork, CA
Comments:What first pulled me to this brand is the rating that it received for energy consumption when compared to the other major wine cooler brand. Having had other wine refrigerators in the past that would cause my utility meter to spin, finding a quite, reliable and cost effective refrigerator was important to me.
The unit keeps the wine exactly where I have the temperature set with very little variation. It is so temperature sensitive that if I keep the door open for more than a couple of minutes, it quickly comes back on to maintain the temperature.
The cabinet is solidly built and the door seals firmly when closed.
The only thing that is different about this unit is that the bottom needs to be set four degrees warmer than the top. It works fine, but from a heat rises and cold drops stand point it seems like reversed logic to me.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
True bottle count
by:Jesse (08-19-2015)
Sedona, AZ
Comments:I had an old Avanti wine fridge for years that was sold as a 166 bottle unit, but I had a hard time fitting 100 bottles in there because I had to remove a bunch of shelves to make some of my bottles fit. When I saw the description of this model, I figured I'd check it out. I'm very happy we did! The shelves fit all my bottles and they seem stronger than the wood shelves that were in my old fridge. Now I can keep all my bottles in the fridge instead of having a few cases sitting next to it. Other than that, it looks great and is holding temperature well so far, so I'm very happy.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Extremely versatile wine cooler
by:Carey (08-06-2015)
San Diego, CA
Comments:My biggest concern was whether or not I would have been able to use either zone for reds and the temperature settings worked out perfectly for me and that makes me a very happy customer. I do wish the shelves came out a little bit more but at the same time I can store the few larger bottles I have. Nice work and thank you.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
