PROS AND CONS:
This built-in wine cooler is sure to be a hit with wine lovers. Its dual-paned glass door and stainless steel trim give it a sophisticated look in the kitchen or bar room. It is free-standing and easy to set up. The 15” width makes it ideal for replacing the old trash compactor. Front ventilation allows for a flush built-in application. It has removable wire shelves and a blue interior light, with a switch.
The SPT 33-Bottle Under-Counter Wine Cooler has a digital panel so the user can easily adjust the temperature. Recommended temperatures for chilling wine are as follows: for full red, 59-69 degrees; for light red, 54-57 degrees; for white and rose, 46-47 degrees; and for sparkling white champagne, 41-47 degrees.
One down side of this product is that the instruction manual can be a little confusing. It’s difficult to tell exactly how to reverse the door and attach the handle. The screws on the hinges are hard to remove. You have to peel back the rubber door seal to access the door handle screws.
The shelves are widely-spaced, so they are not optimal for storing soda cans – they may fall through. In addition, although it is stated that this unit will hold 33 bottles, if they are the regular-sized 750 ml wine bottles, only 18 of them will fit. Standard 12-oz soda cans work well, but when storing standard long-neck 12-oz beer bottles, only one row of 3 will fit on a shelf. In addition, a shelf will hold only two 2-liter bottles.
This product is not for outdoor use. It’s intended for an indoor kitchen or bar.
