Koldfront Free Standing Dual Zone Wine Cooler Review
The Free Standing Dual Zone Wine Cooler from Koldfront has been one of the topmost appliances of its type for 7 years. It has maintained this position due to its wine cooling qualities and timeless design. This wine cooler provides cooling for 2 zones at separate temperatures and maintains temperatures well, which accounts for its high level of customer satisfaction.
Who is this product for?
This product serves those who want an attractive piece of equipment that offers a high standard of performance. It has a capacity of 18 bottles, 9 in each of its two zones, which works well for a moderate wine collection or those who entertain and want to be able to offer their guests a fairly large choice of wines.
The dual zones also mean that anyone whose wine collection covers a range of different types can use this cooler to keep each of them at their optimum temperature.
The package of this product is quite standard with the wine cooler being the main item. It is preassembled with the door already attached and just needs to be plugged into a power outlet to start working. A 115-V power plug is already connected to the cooler so it can be plugged in and the unit cooling right out of the box.
Finally, an instruction manual is provided, which explains how to get the best from your wine cooler, especially in relation to using the temperature control interface.
Overview of features
The Koldfront Free Standing Dual Zone Wine Cooler is a cooler which meant for use at home although it could conceivably be used in a small bar or restaurant for storing wines. It can be either placed on a kitchen counter or on a floor. It showcases your collection beautifully while storing them at the perfect temperature.
The compactness of this dual-zone wine cooler is impressive, especially when you consider that it can store 18 bottles of wine. With external dimensions of 25.33 inches in height by 14 inches wide and 22.25 inches deep, most people should be able to find a space for it.
The top zone of the cooler can provide temperatures between 54° and 66° Fahrenheit while the bottom zone can go as low as 46°. This makes the top suitable for all kinds of red wine, whereas the bottom can store either red, white, or a sparkling wine. The LCD display and digital control panel are very easy to use, with a simple push-button operation to set the desired temperatures in each zone.
The shelves of this cooler are designed to hold 750 ml Bordeaux bottles with a 2.75-inch diameter. However, if you need to accommodate larger bottles, simply remove one of the shelves, and you will have the larger space required.
How to get the most out of it
This cooler is meant for freestanding use so it should never be used inside an enclosed kitchen cabinet. If placed against a wall, always leave at least a 5-inch gap between the back of the cooler and to allow the warm air from the cooler’s vent to escape.
Obviously, read the instructions in terms of how to operate the cooler correctly so that you set the temperatures correctly for the sorts of wines you are storing.
The NutriChef 18 Bottle Dual Zone Thermoelectric Wine Cooler is a great alternative to the one from Koldfront due to its potentially more helpful shelving.
Both coolers fall into the same price range and have a similar capacity, but you might prefer the NutriChef cooler if you want to store wine bottles which are larger than 750 ml.
Thanks to the standing shelf in the NutriChef cooler, you can easily place large bottles as well as open bottles without having to remove a shelf.
The Koldfront Free Standing Dual Zone Wine Cooler is a fine choice for a wine cooler that has performance, good looks, as well as an 18-bottle capacity.
The steel finish on the outside and removable wooden shelves on the inside make a tasteful combination, and with dual-zone cooling you can ensure all the wine types you keep are always at their perfect temperature, ready to be enjoyed.
