Sunpentown WC-20TL 20-Bottle Wine Cooler Review
I bought this cooler to keep our wine from getting too warm, especially during the summers. The cooler was very well packaged and came in proper condition. At first when I opened the door thought that this cooler was missing a foot. However later on I realized that this is a design feature and not a design flaw. Overall it looks pretty neat and is very sturdy.
The shelves of this cooler are not adjustable, however it will store 20 standard wine bottles pretty well. Bigger bottles on the other hand are kind of harder to keep in these shelves. Thicker champagne bottles won’t go in there at all. However I can easily keep tall bottles in the middle of the fridge because the glass in the door isn’t as close to the bottles as the rest of the door.
I really like the fact that this cooler is really quiet and discreet. Also there’s no juddering of a compressor when it switches on or off. That’s because there is no compressor, since it isn’t really a fridge! It just has a fan and some cooling fins. Other than that it works pretty well and the temperature is perfect for storing wine bottles. I have set my cooler at 65 degrees and works pretty well. I mostly store red wines in it since most are fine for drinking at that temperature.
I usually transfer whites to the fridge or wrap in a wet towel and put in the freezer for 10 minutes before drinking, which works out perfectly for me. I think a lot of people treat this cooler for a fridge. However if you put it on the coldest settings, you will be making the fan work hard and the cooler won’t last as long as it is supposed to! Overall I think this is a great fridge as it has kept all of my wine bottles perfectly. If you are looking for a good and reliable wine cooler than you should definitely buy this product.
