Review 1:
I was skeptical about buying a wine cooler site unseen but after comparing prices with those available at stores, this was kinda of a no-brainer. Package arrived quick and intact, thanks Amazon! I was mildly stunned when I opened the unit. I was not quite expecting something that looked as sharp as what I received. Love the stainless steel racks and handle, extremely sophisticated appearance. Not only was this considerably cheaper than than the in store models but this looked twice as good. I put the pieces together and got it running in no time.

It ran silent as one would expect for a thermoelectric and cooled down decently. Temperatures were spot on too. I was tempted to install this in cabinet but realized that the vents would require some clearance. Not a big deal as this looks great on it's own. The shelves are designed for the standard 750ml bottle but are completely removable so I can mix and match to store whatever size bottles I need to.

This far outweighed my expectations in almost all aspects. AAA+++!

We ordered this in October 2010 and it has run incredibly well ever since we received it. The two zones works perfectly, and its slim size fits under our counter.

We've been most amazed by how quiet it is: you can hear it when the room is totally quiet, but even then, it's tough to hear. The lack of a compressor makes a huge difference but does not affect the cooling efficiency at all. It's nice to have properly chilled wine and champagne within easy reach.

The digital readout started to malfunction a bit after about three and a half months. I sent an email to their support team, and a new digital display was shipped out via UPS the same day I emailed them! They were polite and responsive in their emails and handled our issue with speed and interest. It does my heart good to see there still really is good customer service in this world.

I recommend this unit highly and recommend this manufacturer even more. They are honest and take customer service seriously.

I have had the cooler since Christmas and so far I am well pleased. It looks great and works great. Only minor complaints are, a little noisy and the shelves are somewhat hard to pull out.

Review 4:
I have read many bad reviews on wine coolers........I purchased this after many positive reviews. It has performed perfectly for the 2 months I have had it

Review 5:
I have now had this cooler for approximately a month. It is an absolute perfect size and does exactly what it states. It is uber quiet and I LOVE the dual zone control to keep my white's a tad cooler. It looks great and I always get compliments on it.

As per other reviews the racks are a tad cheap feeling, but they get the job done. For the money you can't go wrong. Happy customer here.

Review 6:
Purchased the Whynter WC-211DZ 21 bottle wine cooler for a couple of reasons. It was sized right to fit in a space just below my kitchen counter top and the reviews giving Whynter products more favorable ratings over competing products. The Wnynter is working well keeping both zones at my 58 degrees F setting which is my preferred setting for red wines. I would rate the quality of the Whynter good but not great. The slide out shelves feel kind of cheap. For this price point I'm still waiting for a product with slightly higher quality. The Whynter is fairly quiet although you can hear it running. As another reviewer mentioned the Whynter is designed for normal size bottles. It outputs a little heat out the side vents but nothing drastic. At this point I'm happy with my purchase. I will report back if I have any longevity problems.

Review 7:
Chose this one over several similar sized models due to heavier and possibly more durable construction. It's a very nice unit and does the job silently. It's having no trouble keeping a temperature of 56F in both zones and I have it situated in my basement storage room. I don't hear it when I stand in the room and it's cosmetically nice enough with the metal finish to keep it in a bar area or family room. The trays are pretty solid/sturdy, but a non-standard wine bottle might not fit well due to narrow clearances. Only difficulty I had with setup is that the 4th foot did not come attached, is sized differently from the others, and doesn't screw into an intuitive location. The brief manual/instructions don't tell you where it goes either. Customer service was helpful, but it took about 24hr to get a response-- they told me that someone else had just called with an identical question and they were planning to revise the instructions-- the answer is screws into the bottom of the door hinge, not the base of the unit. Otherwise, not a single problem in the month or so I've owned it.

Review 8:
This is a great product. I like the two temperatures and the slim profile. The packaging was very good. Only downside is that it will not hold some of the odd shaped bottles.

Review 9:
Perfect size for keeping a few bottles chilled for drinking. Can't believe how much difference a few degrees makes in the taste of red wine. Shelves are a little difficult to slide but super quiet and convenient.

NewAir AW-180E Thermoelectric 18 Bottle Wine Cooler With Touch Screen

NewAir AW-180E Thermoelectric 18 Bottle Wine Cooler With Touch Screen

Product Description

In order to fully enjoy a bottle of wine's true aroma, it's important to keep it at the proper temperature, as serving it too cold will cause it to lose its flavor notes while excessively warm temperatures will speed up the aging process.  However, whether you're a budding wine connoisseur or a true oenophile, you don't have to spend thousands of dollars building a home wine cellar.  Instead, a thermoelectric wine cooler such as the NewAir AW-180E is a great, affordable way to keep your wine properly chilled. 

18 Bottle CapacityThe NewAir AW-180E thermoelectric wine cooler has an eighteen bottle capacity with digital controls that make it incredibly easy to use.

LED Light for Visibility
The LED light provides bright contrast and the touch screen on the display is intuitive and easy to control.  Moreover, an internal LED light within the NewAir AW-180E wine cooler illuminates for greater visibility so that you know exactly which bottle of wine you are pulling out.

Quiet Thermoelectric Cooling System
In terms of sound, because the unit's thermoelectric technology involves very little moving parts, this results in vibration-free, silent operation that won't disturb your indoor environment.
Chrome-Plated Wine Racks

Lastly, for a touch of sophistication, the racks inside the NewAir AW-180E are chrome-plated.

Product Features

  • Compact with eighteen bottle capacity

Customer Reviews

Review 1:
We love this cooler. It works great and is quiet. The temp is accurate. I compared it to a portable digital thermometer and it is right on. It looks great, small and affective. The LED light adds to the look. Very smooth and sleek.

Review 2:
We've only had it for 30 days but this appliance is great. It's quiet, cools down quickly, the door alarm is a nice feature, it's very attractive with or without the interior light on and can also be used for soda or beer with no cooling capacity hit. So far, so good!

Review 3:
Just the wine cooler I finally ending up getting. Paid a little more for this 18 bttl , blue light display one. Better than buying a much smaller one without the lights and only 10- 15 dollars difference. I will be having my grand opening on bar next week --FINALLY --
I will semi stock the bar in april and fully stock the entire bar by may and june for sure. This is a great wine cooler and you definitely want this as part of your set up

Review 4:
We previously owned another brand (that cost over $300) - but that gave us nothing but trouble. After one round of repairs (and hours with customer service), it died again, and we gave up. I did an extensive internet search and found that in the under $300 / medium capacity wine coolers - there didn't seem to be ANY that had great reviews, and I didn't want to spend that much money on another questionable product.

Reviews for the NewAir were consistently good to very good - and the price was significantly lower than $300, so I selected this one. I figured, if it, too, dies, I won't have invested as much.

So far so good! Easy setup, runs great, maintains consistent temperature, external temp and light controls is a nice feature, runs quiet, and has an overall very nice appearance. Can't speak to how long this unit will last as I've had it for just a couple of months, but so far, I couldn't be happier with it. 

Review 5:
The wine cooler arrived promptly, in perfect condition, and has worked as described. A satisfactory purchase.

Review 6:
Have had the unit now for 1+ week. Everything is in working order, and unit cools well. Has a nice look to it especially with stainless steel handle installed, with a rather solid door. Nice interior lighting. Wife opened bottle of wine earlier this evening and temperature was within range. Would recommend.

Review 7:
Bought this for a xmas gift for the hubby but we opened it much prior to xmas since we were hosting the holiday. The temp fluctuates between 54 and 55 degress which is fine with me. The blue light is illuminating at night but again, fine with me....especially as a night light. The skinnier bottles do fit better but we have 18 of all sizes that fit just fine. Although it's only been a month I can say so far so good.The unit is also very handsome.

Review 8:
I love my wine cooler! keeps my wine at the perfect temperature,very happy would recomend it to any one looking for the best!

Review 9:
This is the second wine cellar I have purchased in the last 3 years and I researched this for a week. The last wine cellar I had was a bust from Oster, a great Black Friday deal but stopped working after 6 months. My experience was that it took several hours to cool down and it was realy picky about the ambient temperature. Just a little dust on the back cover sent the internal temp upward and really, all I wanted was chilled wine!!! After all my research, I kept coming back to this model. This has the "look" I wanted for my kitchen but I had never owned a product by this company. I did read the other reviews regarding the humming sound it makes but in my position my previous wine cellar sounded like a jet taking off each time you opened the door to get out a bottle of wine and it had to kick in to lower the internal temp again.
When I first unpacked the NewAir cellar, my first thought was wow, this is beautiful!! I got it set in it's new home by the wet bar and plugged it in. Gorgeous!! The temperature starting out showed 74 degrees and it was automatically set to go down to 54 degrees. And it got to 54 30 minutes!!!! I was shocked!! So by that time, I loaded about 10 bottles of wine into the cellar. It took about 1 1/2 hours total to chill all that wine that had been at room temperature. I am very impressed with this machine. As for the humming sound, I have yet to hear it. I know it is working because the wine is cold, but not sure what the other reviewer were describing...maybe my kitchen is just noisy!!hahaahaha
Anyway, I would not hesitate to recommend this cellar and will follow up in a few months with an additional review.
09/14/10 UPDATE:
As promised, I wanted to give an update on the New Air Wine Cooler. It is still as great as when I first got it. Because it is thermoelectric, dust does affect the temperature and I noticed that when we were finishing our kitchen remodel, all the dust from sawing wood and drywall did cause the temp to raise a few degrees. I just blew out the back and within 30 seconds the temp started to drop back to 52. Now when I see the temp go up to 53 or 54 I know it is time to blow out the back cover. I would say I do that once every 3 months and for the record, I feel like our house has an inordinate amount of dust year round so in a house with less dust this may not even be needed. I am still very happy with this purchase and highly recommend it.
