Wine Coolers Buyer’s Guide
There’s a lot of technical terms being thrown around in these reviews, so it may benefit you to brush up on some of the features to look for when purchasing the best wine cooler for your needs. Here’s a quick breakdown of some terms you’ll often see and how they relate to your wine experience.
Dual Zone Temperature: If you’re into drinking red and white wine, dual zone cooling could be for you. Few people store their red and white wine at the same temperature, so having the ability to store wines at different temperatures in your cooler is a big advantage. Dual zone chillers are usually more expensive; but with some people spending enormous amounts of money on a bottle of wine, the investment in chilling it correctly could be worthwhile.
Vibration & Noise: Most wine coolers will be kept in the kitchen or an area used frequently so the noise of the cooler can be noticeable. Choosing a cooler with a thermoelectric fan ensures the noise is kept to a minimum. Compressor coolers are known for being noisy, with some being as loud as your household fridge. Thermoelectric fans also give very little vibration; ensuring the sediment is not disturbed in the wine. Over time disturbed sediment can greatly affect the taste of the wine.
Adjustable Temperature Display: The ability to adjust the temperature to a setting of your choice means you can manage your personal preferred serving temperature for your wine. Some people prefer white wine slightly warmer than others; adjustable temperature gives you the chance to choose how you serve your wine. Many coolers offer adjustable LED digital displays, which are easy-to-use and read.
Design: A big factor for any new appliance for your home, and especially the kitchen, will undoubtedly be the design and look of the cooler. With so many options of design available, the biggest factor will be about the space you have available. Many coolers are lightweight, compact and can be easily stored on a countertop, or you can choose a slimline option. Most chillers will offer a compact design without compromising on how many bottles they can store.
