Avanti 12 Bottle Thermoelectric Counter Top Wine Cooler
Wine coolers are small refrigeration systems designed specifically to chill bottles of wine. Not all wines are designed to be chilled. Complex red wines are meant to be served at room temperature, and by room temperature, they actually mean around seventy degrees. That type of wine is meant to be stored in a cellar away from light, and where it will not get too hot or too cold.
White wines and lesser complex red wines like Merlot’s are designed to be chilled to bring out the exceptional flavors of the fruit. This countertop wine cooler is designed to chill the wine, display the wine, and protect the bottles from harmful light rays that can cause the wine to break down.
Important Features of this Counter Top Wine Cooler :
Storage for Horizontal and Vertical Bottles
I think that my favorite feature of this wine cooler is the fact that it holds eight bottles horizontally and four bottles vertically. That means you can open a bottle of wine and put it back in the cooler to enjoy more of it later.
You also have the optional space to have your horizontal bottles safely positioned so the corks never dry out and let air get to the liquid in the bottle.
No Vibrations to Disturb the Wine
The fan and motor in this unit run smoothly so there is very little noise, and almost no vibrations. My wine does not get the sediment shook up in it.
Curved Glass Doors Create an Elegant Look
The curved doors add a slight elegant touch to the cooling unit. The black exterior is enhanced by the curvature of the doors creating a very modern looking appliance that looks great in my den.
LED Temperature Display
I love being able to easily see what the temperature inside my cooler is.
- The shelves are removable so you can adjust the room you have for standing bottles.
- This unit is designed to lower the temperature of the wine about twenty degrees lower than the ambient temperature of the room it is positioned in. It does not independently cool to a predetermined temperature.
- The racks will not hold a 1.5 liter bottle of wine.
I really like this Counter Top Wine Cooler. It is attractive, it keeps my wine at the temperature I need it to be, and it is a reasonably priced appliance that will fit into any home décor.
