Having a Built In Single Zone Wine Cooler in your home office, game room, den, garage, kitchen, or recreation room, was one time thought of as a luxury. Today technology has caused the built in wine cooler to be cheaper to build, so they are priced more affordably, and more people are able to own one of them.
I have read several Built In Single Zone Wine Cooler reviews in an attempt to find one of these appliances that would do everything I wanted it to do, and would fit where I wanted to place it. I finally decided to do built in wine cooler reviews for myself so that I could find the right appliance, and then I decided to share my reviews so everyone else could find the right built in beverage cooler for their needs.
Features I love about this Built In Single Zone Wine Cooler
I must tell you that I fell in love with every aspect of this built in wine fridge. The following features are some that I found outstanding.
The cooling cabinet of this system is not more than fifteen inches wide. The slender width makes it a perfect choice to replace the old garbage disposal units that are prevalent in homes constructed in the seventies. You do not need a large amount of room to install one of these appliances, so more people have the option of owning one, and this particular appliance can be placed on top of a table, under a cabinet, or simply freestanding on any level surface.
Fan Forced Ventilation
Fan forced ventilation allows the cooling system to pull the heated air that is forced out of the appliance away from the back of the unit, and send in fresh cool air. With fan forced ventilation you benefit because the temperature inside the appliance stays constant without the compressor having to kick on as often. That means this wine refrigerator consumes less power.
You also benefit by having a device that lasts longer than the versions that do not have fan forced ventilation. Since this unit can be placed under a cabinet, the ventilation is located at the front of the unit.
Soft Touch Electronic Controls
The soft touch electronic controls inside this appliance are easy to reach, easy to read, easy to understand, and easy to operate. The controls are positioned on the front of the cooling cabinet so they are easy to reach if the unit is placed under a cabinet. You simply push a button to raise, or lower, the temperature inside the refrigerated section, and there is a digital display to show you what the temperature inside the appliance is.
Slide Out Wire Shelves
Everyone likes the protective aspects of wooden shelves inside a built in wine cooler, but when it comes time to clean those wooden shelves everyone agrees that they wish they had bought a unit that had wire shelves. The wire shelves inside this built in beverage cooler can be pulled out so you can reach the back portion of the appliance, and they are easy to wipe down and keep clean.
The blue LED lighting inside this appliance is soft, attractive, and mesmerizing. You will have enough light to read the labels on your wine bottles when you open the door to take one out, but the blue LED light does not produce a great amount of heat, so it will not cause the internal temperature to be raised. You do have a power switch that allows you to turn off the blue LED lighting when you wish. I find that this lighting showcases the bottles of wine I have stored inside my chilling cabinet, so I leave my light on most of the time.
