    Sipping and Chillin

    I had read reviews from many sites regarding this product, and they primarily stemmed around delivery. I have to say that this was not an issue here. The chiller was delivered in one piece with no dents. I had to pay for delivery with BestBuy, but it was probably for the best as it arrived in really good shape. The chiller is working great, and I can tell the differences between the two zones. One zone is definitely cooler than the other, although I have not tested the accuracy. To get the chiller to fit better in the under-counter space, I had to extend all four feet. I used my leveler to make sure that it was level front/back and side/side. I would highly recommend using a leveler to fit it in place or it will look odd under the counter. So far, I am extremely happy with my purchase.

    The Whynter - Elite 40 Bottle Built-in wine refrigerator is exactly as advertised. I had to adjust the feet to make it fit better under the counter. I would recommend that you get a leveler so that front, back, and sides are all level. So, I would expect for you to have to take some time to install, so I would give it 1-hour or so. Once installed, the unit has run as expected for a dual zone system. The trays are sized to allow for both wine and champagne, as I have stored both. I have yet to check the accuracy of the temperature, but I have not had any cause to do so. The LED light is awesome, and I can barely notice any sound coming from the unit. I would recommend this wine chiller to everyone.

    My Wife Loves this Fridge

    She say's it's beautiful and she loves the way it compliments the other appliances in our kitchen. We were remodeling our kitchen and she had a smaller one for the counter. So I saw this one and saw a photo of what it would look like built in, and it was gorgeous. It came already assembled, all I had to do was install the handles and the cabinet guys did the rest. its a great show piece for our kitchen.

    High Quality

    I cold not be happier with this purchase. It looks great and works wonderfully. It is a solid, well built fridge. It's industrial quality and is heavy. I had to rent a 2 wheel dolly to get it up the stairs. If you're going back and forth on what to get, take the plunge on this item. It's not cheap but it is quality. You truly get what you pay for. The dual temp is outstanding for reds and whites.

    Beautiful, Quiet Dual Zone Cooler

    Beautiful looking French Door style wine cooler. Quiet compressor. Dual zone temperature for whites and reds with independent zones (left and right). Unlike my old 2 zone wine cooler, Both sides can be red or both sides white, or mixed left or right white or red. Lots of versatility. Control are hidden inside, so no accidental changes or power offs due to kids or cleaning ladies. Hopefully it lasts longer than the 4 years my older wine cooler did. Bought extended warranty just in case.

    Very nice wine fridge

    Have enjoyed wine fridge for several months. The two cooling zones are accurate and keep red and white wines at just the right temp. Unit is quiet and size specifications were right on. Only one negative- shelves have a groove for ease of removal, but if pulled out too far, they tilt and wine bottles may fall out. With careful handling, this isn’t a problem...simply an inconvenience. I would buy again!

    Good dual zone for the price

    Not a bad fridge for the price. It showed up dented on the back as I've seen from some reviews, but since it is going under a cabinet it was fine. The dual zones work great, easy to set not issues with power loss etc. The only drawback it it is very noisy. A lot louder than a normal fridge. If you can handle a bit of noise than this is a good deal.

    Working great for 2 years now

    Put this in with our Kitchen makeover 2 years ago. It’s been working great! No issues! It’s a little louder than I expected, but not bad at all. The independent temp control for each side is a big benefit. We put small and large wine bottles as well as beer bottles and cans. Everything fits great!

    This is a great wine cooler. It looks terrific and is reasonably priced for its good looks and features (under $1,000). You can set the temperature on each side and open only one door to retrieve a bottle of wine. It is a little noisy but that seems to be typical for a wine cooler.

    Do not recommend

    Disappointed

    Very dissapointing. Month 13 (after 12 month warranty expired).. one side freezes (20 degrees), ruined some very good wine. No one services them and you cannot buy parts to have someone to repair. You must ship to them for repair at a cost near replacment..

    The cooler is nice looking, but is very loud and keeps coming on all the time, when the doo hasn't even been opened. My other two regular fridges are very quiet and energy star rated. This one isn't, and it shows by the power it consumes.

    Very happy, I was able to fit 32 regular bottles and 4 magnums by removing 1 shelf. It equals 40 bottles so I am happy. Able to fit Pinot Noir bottles as well. Arrived in great condition though delivery took a long time

    I like the look of the fridge since it's somewhat of a focal point. Plus the dual temp is great to have both red and whites in the same space.
