It chills and heats
May be out of some peoples price range
I bought my Peltier Electric Wine Cooler from John Lewis and I have to say I have been very impressed with the purchase so far. The beauty of this cooler compared to other inferior offerings I have tried is that this one allows me to either cool down the wine or gently warm the wine. It is common knowledge among wine aficionados (like myself) that some tipples are best kept in a warm and humid environment in order to improve the taste, as by the same token, other wines are much more appetizing when chilled. This is where the Peltier Electric Cooler comes into its own because your average cooling device can only chill your wine as oppose to giving it that warm edge. This bonus feature is reflected in the price as it is twice as much as other coolers, but for a man in my position, money is really no object when it comes to buying the finest. A less knowledgeable wine taster, or indeed someone who is not so bothered, may well fork out for one of the cheaper more downmarket options, however if you're a real wine buff then this is the cooler for you. In conclusion, this product is an excellent present for a wine enthusiast or indeed if you intend to throw a party, and your guest list is of high calibre, then this is simply a must have product.
