I admit that I had wanted to buy a 52 Bottle Built in Wine Cooler for many years before I decided to finally do so. One of the reasons I waited to buy one of these appliances was I did not know anything about them and was uncertain as to what features I would prefer. I read many built in wine cooler reviews before I decided to jump in head first, and buy one of the units. Then I made it my goal to research, and review, some of these appliances so other people might not have as difficult time choosing which one they want.

Features I Love about this 52 Bottle Built in Wine Cooler
Every built in wine cooler has special features that make it more desirable than other versions would be. For many people the size, and price, are the two main features they look at when shopping for any items, but the following features made this built in wine fridge stand out to me.
Hardwood shelves inside the attractive glass fronted cabinet add beauty, and elegance, to your appliance. The hardwood shelves create a sophisticated look that allows the cabinet to enhance the beauty of your home. The blue LED lighting inside illuminates and brings out the look of the hardwood shelves.
Radiant cooling means that the interior portion of the miniature fridge will be equally cool on the top as it is on the bottom. Have you ever noticed that in your refrigerator at home there are cold spots, and warm spots? That is due to the fact that there are vents leading from the chilled freezer section of the refrigeration unit into the storage portion of the refrigerator. This allows the air to seep in, and whatever is sitting close to the vent the air enters through will be colder than things that are farther away from the vent. The radiant cooling technique allows the super cooled air to be evenly distributed throughout the built in beverage cooler so every bottle is chilled to perfection.
When you purchase an appliance that has to be hardwired into the electrical system of your home you have to install that appliance beneath a counter, and close enough to a wall, to access the electrical circuit. When you install this 52 Bottle Built in Wine Cooler you will have the ability to place it under a counter-top, or in a wet bar, or on top of a table, or on the floor. The unit comes with an attached power plug so you do not have to hire an electrician to make the installation for you.
I will caution you that the chilling cabinet tends to be a little top-heavy. You will want to make certain that the appliance is setting on a level surface if you choose to use it as a freestanding appliance.
The majority of built in wine cooler reviews never mention whether a built in wine cooler has a reversible door or not. The fact that an appliance has a reversible door may not seem important to the people who are writing the majority of the reviews, but I believe the ability to reverse the door makes the cabinet fit better into every home. You get to customize the built in wine refrigerator so that it fits the space you have available. When this wine refrigerator installed beneath the countertop in your kitchen it will look like it was intended to go there when the kitchen was framed. It will look seamless and beautiful.

Before making your purchase you need to consider the amount of money you have budgeted for the purchase of a built in wine cooler, and then consider what size cooler you want and what type of wine you prefer to drink.
