A wine fridge can be the perfect appliance for the wine aficionado. Wine fridges are specially made to keep wine perfectly chilled until just the right moment, giving you the perfect wine experience.
You can find a wine cooler fridge from many brand names including Avanti, Cuisinart, Danby, EdgeStar, Frigidaire, General Electric, Haier America, Marvel, Samsung, Sanyo, Summit Appliance, Sunpentown and Vinotemp.
You may find some specially made wine refrigerators that exclusively hold wine for less than $100 or you may get luxury cabinets that cost more than $1000.
For instance, Haier Americas 12-bottle freestanding wine refrigerator only costs around one hundred dollars. This design boasts a soft interior light as well as adjustable thermal control so you can have your wine at the temperature you like.
The double pane insulated glass door has a recessed handle. The interior contains five full-width chrome wire shelves to hold the wine bottles.
On the other hand, Marvels beverage and wine refrigerator has two temperature zones to accommodate four wine bottles in one and sixty 12-ounce cans in the other. Digital controls and an LED panel allow you to adjust and monitor the refrigerators internal temperature.
This design also includes a MicroSentry system that alerts you when your desired temperature is higher or lower for an extended period of time. This Marvel model also has two adjustable shelves, one pull-out wine rack and a removable tempered glass shelf. The dual-paned tinted glass door protects wine from UV rays and provides insulation. This model costs from $1200 to $1300.
You could also go with a countertop design such as Avantis 16-bottle countertop wine cooler. Although it can fit 16 bottles, it is a compact design that can adjust the thermostat for red and white wines.
The slide-out chrome shelves also keep your wine secure as does the vibration free operation. A reversible thermopane glass door lets you observe the softly illuminated interior.
The Avanti refrigerator costs between $90 and $125, which makes it a great option if you are looking for a wine refrigerator but have a limited budget.
Another more upscale option is the GE Profile 29 inch Wine Center.
For wine collectors who need a little more storage space for their collection, this particular wine fridge can be an excellent choice.
Koolatron has designed an even more compact four-bottle wine cellar that can be either free-standing or mounted to the wall or a cabinet. This design holds four 25-ounce bottles. Like other wine fridges, it has a thermoelectric cooling system, removable shelves and a transparent door to see the softly illuminated interior. Koolatron compact designs cost from $100 to $140.
Edge Star also carries a slim-fit wine cooler with its 12-bottle freestanding wine refrigerator. It has all the features of many other refrigerators except this design is only ten inches wide. The EdgeStar also has a modest price tag from between $120 and $140.
Whether you are looking for luxury, compactness or simply a good way to keep your wine at your desired temperature, a wine fridge may be just the thing you need. There are many options available to you, so you should be able to find the right refrigerator at just the right price. You are sure to enjoy the wine the way you have always wanted when it is chilled exactly to your liking.
