Customer Reviews

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.
