    Bad from the start

    After unpacking and powering up, I gave it a few hours to get cold before filling with 3 bottles at a time. But as soon as I start filling it, I noticed a pattern with the compressor. It would come on, run for about 1 minute, then go off. A few minutes later, it would do the same thing, repeating the cycle at least 6-8 times an hour. You can't not notice it because the compressor pops on and off. I had it running at normal temperature. I played around with it and when I set it at the lowest setting, it ran less frequently. Still, it would run for 1 minute before stopping, and repeat for at least 3 times per hour. It got to the point where the sides got warm. At this frequency, there's no way this device is energy efficient. Needless to say, it went back to the store. I did get the 29 bottle version next, so far so good.

    OK wine frig

    The best I can say is this wine frig is OK. I will keep it but I would not order it again. I have had several in the past but needed a different size so the dimensions were the key factor in choosing this model. It does not have an interior light or thermostat readout, which I had become accustomed to and definitely miss. It cools the wine but it is difficult to get it set at the desired temperature. The door is reversible but it is a grueling process and the instructions are minimally helpful (they don't tell you some important things you need to know so we had to backtrack a few times). It makes a noisy clunk when the fan starts and stops - so much I can hear it at night from bed which is down the hall and around the corner. It is a tight fit to fill the top shelves completely. I do not mind the sideways lower shelves; they seem to accommodate slightly larger bottles.

    Great little wine fridge!

    This wine fridge is exactly what I was looking for – it is compact enough to fit on top of my counter. I bought this as a temporary storage for the bottles of wine that I plan to drink soon. It seems to work well, and it will even fit some of the larger champagne sized bottles. As some reviews had mentioned, it does make a noticeable popping sound when the compressor turns off. However, this is not a big deal, as I keep it in the kitchen with the rest of my appliances. I do hear the popping sound from time to time, but it isn’t any louder than when my icemaker drops a load of ice and refills itself. All in all, it is a great fridge, and it performs well.

    Quiet and cool! In Hawaii maintaining wines can be tricky. Unless you have a huge refrigerator with special temperature spaces, you may be over chilling in your regular fridge. You may be over heating by letting them sit in a room. (I had a bottle of Merlot go bad because of this). The Insignia 14 bottle Wine Cooler (cellar) is just the right size to stay hidden under a counter and hold enough to settle any desire of mine, or a small party!

    Cheap Mini Fridge for wine

    Our first one arrived with the metal corner dinged and the temperature dial completely broken off from the stem. Had no problem exchanging. You can't expect much more from the product for the price. It's akin to a mini fridge you would buy for a college dorm room. But it does the job of keeping wine cool. The temperature dial is really the only issue as it is very cheap plastic connect to a plastic stem. It can easily break and then the product is worthless so just watch how you handle the dial.

    Surprised that it does so fine. Alot better than ones my friends have. Runs quite, looks great not cheap. The coldest it got was 36° within a few hours. Very easy to adjust the tempurature settings. Love the shelving racks. We leave the bottom rack out to stand up beer, sodas, etc. Very satisfied with it's performance. Built solid. Very glad I bought this one at a very reasonable price.

    Lots of bottles of chilled wine without taking up valuable refrigerator space. Don't have to worry about rotating bottles into the refrig- just put them in the wine cooler when you bring them home from the store. Just make sure you have a place for it and power available at the place. It is bigger than I thought when I ordered it. It would not quite fit under our cabinets, but we made it work out.

    No way does it hold 14 bottles of good wine

    Posted
    Ipsumscit

    Do not buy if you buy good wine designed to last for years and in bottles that are made of thick glass. It will not hold those bottles. The interior unit is a little bit too small width-wise, and the shelves are not high enough to stack those wines either next to each other or above each other. A very poor shelf design, designed for cheap skinny grocery store wine bottles.

    barely fits champagne bottles and 14 wine bottles barely fit. it's a little noisy and it gets hot (mostly at night, for some reason). looks nice and hold temperature well. probably good for a first cooler. i'ld buy it again, knowing what i know now, but only when it's on sale.

    Good price, no frills wine cooler. Temperature control knob has cold, colder, and coldest...non digital, non numeric. But it works great! Once in a while I hear a sound like a cork popping. I joke, "It's the cork man...quality control. Don't drink all my wine in there!" ; )~

    I bought this on sale and I'm happy after having it for a few weeks. It holds enough bottles for our needs without taking much space in our kitchen. So far it's been a good purchase and recommend you don't think twice before purchasing this.

    I am using this wine fridge as a cheese cave for my homemade cheese aging. It keeps a consistent temperature and is very quiet. Perfect for my needs and I’m sure it would be just as good for chilling white wines and keeping reds at the optimal temp.

    Keeps white & dessert wines at a consistent and cold temp. Haven’t used it for reds, but I believe it could maintain a cool 55degF. Quiet in use, compact. Note that it does *not* stack well on the matching beverage cooler (same footprint) due to placement of door hinges.

    We have several different bottles of wine from different wineries. Some bottles fit in the top some did not. We had to many taller wine bottles and the door would not close all the way. It needs to be like a half inch deeper for us. We returned it.

    Never thought I would have a need to keep my wine chilled. And it was one of my best moves. So many times, having to remember to chill my wine and then it was too late. So out comes the ice cubes. Not a good move or taste. Just what I needed.

    Wine cooler is a good size, runs quietly. We previously had a large one to handle both reds and whites, but had many problems with it. We use this cooler for white only. The shelves are not heavy duty so the bottles have to be placed correctly to avoid vibration noise.

    So far so good. Champagne bottles can fit if you put them in the front spaces and we found a temp we liked after playing with it for a few days. It's fine if you work with it. Super high end wines with special shapes fit up front as well.

    We bought this for my mother in law for Christmas and she loves it! It is perfect for those who only have 10-12 bottles in your house at a time. Highly recommended for those who love wine but are not “super collectors”
