Features of the Wine Enthusiast Silent 12 Bottle Wine Refrigerator
- Capacity: 12 bottles
- Stainless steel trim door
- 50-66°F temperature range
- Digital controls
- 3 slide-out chrome shelves
- Interior LED light
The style of this wine refrigerator is clean, contemporary and minimalistic so it’s ideal to have in a kitchen amongst other modern appliances. The black exterior combines well with the stainless trim door which features strong thermopane glass and a recessed handle which adds to its subtle appearance.
The exterior digital controls provide user-friendly control over the current temperature and the interior LED lighting. The temperature range is very good for a compact wine chiller, enabling you to set a range between 50-66°F.
There are three chrome shelves inside which can slide-out if required. Each shelve can hold up to four regular 740 ml wine bottles. Thicker bottles can squeeze in, but usually require you to take out one of the shelves.
Thermoelectric cooling is a quieter and more eco-friendly alternative to compressors, giving you ultra quiet cooling and minimal vibration so this appliance won’t cause any noise irritation or affect your fine wines.
Pros and Cons of the Wine Enthusiast Silent 12 Bottle Wine Refrigerator
Good styling, good build quality, quiet, uses space very efficient and reaches the desired temperature quickly.
Tall bottles cannot fit in due to the limited depth of the unit. Also some bottles with a wider diameter require a shelf to be removed to fit in due to the close height spacing of the shelving, which reduces the capacity to 9 bottles.
The Wine Enthusiast Silent 12 Bottle Wine Refrigerator is a great looking compact wine cooler which is both quiet and energy efficient. The only caveat is that the shelving is tight so bottles thicker than regular 750ml bottles such as Burgundy or Pinot Noir cannot fit without removing a shelf.
If you’re fine with having a reduced bottle capacity or you only need to store regular 750ml wines then we recommend this wine refrigerator.
