Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat does 'temperature zones' mean?
ATemperature zones refers to the capability of the wine cooler to have 2 different temperatures set in different areas of the appliance. This is helpful for storing different types of wines together at their optimal temperatures, without having to compromise on a common temperature.
QWhat capacity do I need for my wine cooler?
AThat very much depends on how much wine you store/drink at one time! Most households are probably not going to need more than a 15-20 bottle unit. However if you are an avid collector, or supplying a restaurant, you're going to want something far more sizable!

Wine Cooler Buying Guide

A wine cooler is a specialist fridge specifically designed for storing wine bottles, to allow them to be stored safely at the optimal temperature. They are a step up from a bottle store in your fridge - if you find your bottle collection taking over much of the fridge, or if you want your wine cooled to a very specific temperature, it may be time to invest in one of these appliances.

Wine coolers vary dramatically in their bottle capacity, and how much wine you want to store at once will large dictate your buying choice. Our coolers range from very small 2-bottle coolers - effectively very efficient ice buckets - to enormous cabinets that can hold 300 bottles at once. Coolers also vary enormously in their shape and the number of shelves/baskets they contain - some will allow wine to be stacked closely on top of each other for maximum storage room, others concentrate on less storage, but display the bottles in a more aesthetically pleasing way.

Temperature Control

One of the biggest benefit of a specialised wine cooler is that you can set the temperature to whatever you want - allowing you to keep your wine stored at a different temperature than the rest of your food in the fridge. This is helpful, because certain types of wine favour different temperature ranges, both for storing and drinking.

More advanced (and therefore, expensive) wine coolers also have separate temperature zones. You can set the temperatures in these zones independently of each other, allowing even more flexibility in storing your wine.

The top-range coolers may even have a humidifier unit installed - this allows a high degree of control as to the storage humidity for your bottles. Humidity control is important to keep expensive wines in top condition for long periods of time: too much humidity, and mold may form on the bottles. On the other hand, too little humidity could cause the corks of your bottles to dry out. While humidity control may substantially increase the price of a wine cooler, it may be worth the extra investment if your wine collection is particularly rare and expensive.

Built In Freezer

Some wine coolers also have a separate freezer section - this can be helpful for storing ice and whiskey cubes to chill the wine while you drink it, or a sneaky carton of ice-cream!

Alarm System

Higher-tier wine coolers may have an alarm system - either a visual or aural alarm that goes off when the temperature strays outside it’s set boundaries. This can be very helpful for warning you if the door is ajar, there is a power failure, or some other problem that could threaten the climate of your cooler.

Finally, our wine coolers are graded on their energy efficiency. The higher the grade, the less energy will be used while the cooler is running, and the cheaper it will be to run. Look for a wine cooler graded at A or above for the best efficiency in daily use.

Bottle Capacity

'Bottle Capacity' denotes the maximum number of bottles the wine cooler is capable of holding at once.

Across the range of coolers, the bottle capacity range from 1 bottle(s) to 592 bottle(s). The bottle capacity of the majority of coolers range from 0 bottle(s) to 30 bottle(s). The cooler with the biggest bottle capacity is the Miele KWT 6322 UG, which is a 34 bottle(s) bottle capacity cooler and is on sale for $3,299.00. The Magic Chef MCWC6B, which sells for $87.49, has the smallest bottle capacity and is a 6 bottle(s) bottle capacity wine cooler.

More bottles means a larger storage capacity, which means more wine can be stored and chilled.

Temperature Zones

'Temperature zones' are separate parts of the wine cooler, which can all be set to differing temperatures.

Across the range of wine coolers, the temperature zones range from 1 to 3. The temperature zones of most coolers range from 1 to 2. The wine cooler with the most temperature zone is the Miele KWT 6322 UG, which is a 2 temperature zone wine cooler and currently retails for $3,299.00. The Magic Chef MCWC6B, which is on sale for $87.49, has the least temperature zone and is a 1 temperature zone cooler.

Different temperature zones are helpful if you are storing several different types of wine, all of which have different optimal storage temperatures. This will help you best store all of them at once.

Noise Levels

The noise level of the wine cooler, measured in decibels (dB).

The noise levels of wine coolers range from 25dB to 55dB. The noise levels of the majority of coolers range from 39dB to 41dB. The cooler with the loudest noise level is the Magic Chef MCWC12B, which is a 39dB wine cooler and is priced at $125.47. The wine cooler with the quietest noise level is the NewAir AW-280E, which is a 25dB wine cooler and is available at $209.14.

Fewer dB means a quieter wine cooler, which means it is less likely to be distracting or annoying as it hums along in the background.
