Two temperature zones, simple controls, led display, looks great
Has increased my alcohol consumption!
I've wanted a Wine Cooler for a while now, however they are very expensive, in particular the one's with two zones. I came across this one and have been very happy with it, at such a great price (£299). It looks classy in my kitchen with it's aluminium look trim, chrome shelves and blue interior light (can be set to be off or on). The controls are very easy to use and it shows you the temperature in an electronic display.
I have red wine in one side and white in the other, the white I set to 12 degrees and the red at 15 degrees. Both then store very well and the white then only needs 15-30 mins in the main fridge to reach optimal serving temperature (the white wine won't develop complexity at the lower temperatures we drink it at normally). It also has water trays so you can vary the humidity.
Durability wise I have had no issues, it comes with a 1 year guarantee.
