I'm really impressed by this wine cooler. Before, I had a ton of wine bottles just taking up room on a shelf or in the fridge. The fridge never kept them at the perfect temperature, and the shelf meant that I had to think ahead since the wine wasn't cooled at all. This pretty much solves both of those problems.
I really love that it's a smaller type of cooler. It fits 12 bottles, but it doesn't take up much more room than that. It's smaller than most standard types of mini fridges. It fits onto a kitchen counter without much room. For that matter, it would fit under most types of kitchen tables without any problems as well. Just remember to let it have space around the cooler itself to allow it to "breathe".
Setting the temperature is as easy as pressing a few buttons on the front of the cooler. You can press "up" or "down", and the LED display will tell you what temperature the cooler is inside. This way, you can set your cooler to the perfect temperature for whatever type of wine you're drinking. The buttons are easy to press, and the cooler is instantly responsive. There's also a button on the front that lets you turn on the blue light on the interior. I'll admit that I'm not too impressed by the interior light, but if you know the design/shape of your favorite wine, it does allow you to pick out your favorite bottle without turning on a harsh overhead light.
This cooler does fit the 12 bottles as advertised. Be aware that it is a tight fit, and the cooler isn't much larger than the size it would take to store the 12 bottles. The shelves easily pull out to allow you to view your wine at a glass. They aren't on any sort of "rollers" or anything, so pulling out the shelves isn't smooth, but they do pull out without too much issue. I'm able to fit the thicker "champagne" bottles in here as well, but it does effect the ability to pull out the shelves quite as nicely. However, they do fit.
As a note, it produces virtually no noise. There's a very slight hum in a completely quiet room, but aside from that, you won't know that it's on.
This cooler does a great job at what I need it to do, and it doesn't get in the way of everything else in my life. Overall, it's a nice, hassle-free way to store my wine and keep it at the perfect temperature. It's simple to keep a bunch of bottles in here, and I always have simple access to them when I need it. Win-win.
