Last month I told you about the Electrolux Beverage Center, which offers a unique way to store not only your favorite beverages, but also a variety of foods and serving platters. And while the Electrolux Beverage Center does offer the ability to store wine, if you’re a wine enthusiast, there’s nothing better at keeping your wine perfectly ready to drink than a dedicated wine cooler.
Thankfully, in addition to their Beverage Center, Electrolux also offers a dedicated 24-inch under-counter Wine Cooler, offering a total capacity of 46 750ml bottles in Electrolux’s stunning stainless steel design. The Wine Cooler’s design matches beautifully to that of the Beverage Center, which makes the pair an ideal addition to an in-home bar or outdoor kitchen, as they can be placed directly next to one another (and look great doing so) all while handling a variety of refrigeration needs.
So is the Electrolux Wine Cooler right for you? If you’re an avid wine drinker, then the answer is absolutely yes. Read on and I’ll tell you why.
Electrolux Under-Counter Wine Cooler Overview
Simply put, the Electrolux Wine Cooler holds 46-bottles of wine in a perfectly temperature controlled environment, ensuring your wine’s quality stays preserved exactly as it was intended to be. There’s five fully expandable Luxury-Glide shelves on top, allowing you to browse your wine collection easily without the need to move bottles around, and because the shelves store the wine on its side, corks stay moist, which is an absolute must if you plan on storing your wine for an extended period of time.
As with other Electrolux appliances, functionality is only part of the package. Not only does the Electrolux Wine Cooler store wine, it does so beautifully, thanks to its Luxury-Design LED lighting. This lighting paired with the largely glass front transforms the Wine Cooler into a beautiful design focal point in your kitchen. And while the majority of storage is dedicated to bottles placed on their side, for entertaining/champagne/bottles you plan on enjoying in the near future, the lowest storage area is designed to perfectly display the bottles you’ve selected, adding yet another unique design feature to the Wine Cooler.
Electrolux Under-Counter Wine Cooler Features
In terms of features, the Electrolux Wine Cooler has everything you’d expect in a wine storage solution, with its main and most important feature being the ability to precisely select and keep a stable temperature. Thanks to its Perfect Set Temperature Control, you can quickly and easily set any temperature between 45°F and 65°F via the electronic display panel, and in the event this temperature changes, the Electrolux Wine Cooler will alert you through audible beeps as to the specific problem (temperature change, door ajar, power failure, etc.)
From there, the Electrolux Under-Counter Wine Cooler offers a variety of convenience and display features that make using it incredibly simple and intuitive. There’s a vacation mode, which disables lighting and keypad inputs while you travel to aid in conserving energy. There’s the ability to lock the electronic control panel – a wonderful feature for those with touch-happy children. There’s an integrated PureAdvantage air filter, which serves to provide six months of optimum air quality. And as already noted, there’s Luxury-Design LED lighting, allowing to customize your wine display depending on the mood you’re in.
Everything you need to perfectly store your wine is built into the Electrolux Wine Cooler.
Electrolux Under-Counter Wine Cooler Design
As is the case with the Electrolux Beverage Center, the design of the Wine Cooler notes a largely glass front panel (that’s also UV-resistant), which pairs exceptionally with the stainless steel design. It’s modern, sleek, a little industrial, and it will look great in virtually any kitchen. Inside, the Wine Cooler’s design is functional and well planned, with the sliding racks easily allowing you to gain access to your full wine collection quickly and easily. And thanks to the LED lighting, reading labels even in a dark space isn’t a problem.
Aside from having your own wine cellar, there’s really not a better way to store your wine.
Electrolux Under-Counter Wine Cooler Conclusion
In planning my own home’s kitchen refrigeration needs, I found that picking between the Electrolux Wine Cooler and Beverage Center boiled down to two things: how much wine is in my collection and how often will I be entertaining. If you have a large wine collection and love entertaining, buy both, as you can never have enough refrigeration space. If your idea of the perfect evening is a romantic dinner for two with a bottle of your favorite vintage, the Wine Cooler will fit the bill perfectly. And if you’re a family that enjoys the occasional bottle of wine, the Beverage Center is an ideal choice. Whatever you pick, you’re going to get the same beautiful design and superb functionality from both.
