View Full Version : Wine Fridge
I'm in the market for a wine refrigerator. Probably something in the 25-35 bottle area. Any recommendations?
I have bought stuff from these people and they are good merchants. They send me a catalog once in a while and seem to have a lot of wine stuff. I keep my wine stash in my basement. http://www.wineenthusiast.com/E/landing.asp?N=173&uid=B3EF6D5D-AA5B-4EE9-A46C-16D96F425080
My first is advice is go a little bigger. I first picked up a 36 bottle refigerator and within a year I was buying a second one. I would recommend 60 as a minimum and would even suggest thinking bigger (I ended up buying a 3rd 120 bottle refigerator last year).
I got my 2 small ones from Costco and was very satisfied.
Does anyone know of any good brands for these fridge's?
My big one is a Haier, I believe the small ones were Avanti (no brand name on the front so I'm not sure - I believe Costco has carried both Avanti and Vinotemp at times). My personal opinion is that my small ones are a little more sturdy than the big one, but that could be model (size) difference rather than brand.
I have a Haier 42 bottle I got from Costco. It's stuffed with 47 or 48 bottles and I wish I had another one :-)
It seems very well made and has worked like a champ.
Ours came from costco as well. It holds 36 bottles, and while it looks great (tinted glass and an internal fluorescent light to play with) it's not nearly large enough. Get the biggest model you can, you won't regret it.
I picked one of these up and I'm pretty happy with it.
As far as capacity, depending on how much room you have, it might be cheaper to just pick up a second one later because doubling the size seems to quadruple the price.
