Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Only one of this size with dual zones at a great price This is the only dual zone wine cooler that would fit in our old trash compactor slot without modifying the slot. It is also cheaper than the "name brand" coolers. We also chose it because if there was a problem we would be backed by Home Depot instead of an internet site we had never purchased from. Shipping came via a 3rd party carrier who contacted us and coordinated drop-off times so it was a painless transaction. The cooler is working perfectly!! September 17, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This wine cool is exactly as described by the mfg. The dual zones work fine. I keep the whites 10 degrees cooler than the reds. However, the cooler tends to run constantly. Not energy efficent. 28 bottles fit comfortably. If using as a built-in, save a scrap of filler to close the gap to counter top. The back lit controls would look better as LEDs. I had it delivered to my home. It came as curbside delivery. Make sure you have a dolly or help getting to the house. June 4, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good features for the price, but has flaws The unit only holds 22 full size bottles, not 28 as described. For dual zone, built in, the price is good, but it occasionally leaks a small amount of water from the bottom right side. It appears to leak shortly after we open the door to add or remove bottles. Take note that the top portion is the warmer section for red wines and the bottom zone is cooler for white wines. If you are a red wine enthusiast, this may not be the unit you want. The temperature ranges cannot be adjusted to accommodate red/warmer temperatures on the bottom. June 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding value and performance Purchased this product in June 2015. Replaced trash compactor that was 20+ years old. Perfect fit. Excellent cooling and extremely quiet. This wine cooler utilizes a compressor with CF5 environmentally friendly refrigerant. The Owners Manual and Instructions are detailed and easy to understand. The only assembly required was the installation of the door handle. I would not hesitate to purchase this wine cooler again. Outstanding value for the money. July 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PERFECT! If you have a trash compactor, and you want to replace it with a wine cooler, this is for you!! EXCELLENT craftsmanship!!! PERFECT fit. You can adjust the cooler so that you make the decision on how you want it to sit. You can also change the direction of how it opens. Nice feature. The only thing is I wish I had a wider range of temperatures. However, they are industry standard, I just like my wine REAL cold. I looked everywhere to get something nice in my kitchen. Once again, Home depot beat out their competitors. Thank you! August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A perfect fit I'm using this chiller to age homemade cheeses. It holds 50F rock solid. Very quiet operation. Installed unit to replace a garbage compactor - slid right into the 15" x 34" space no sweat. Very satisfied with purchase and would recommend. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very stylish wine cooler. Like the fact that it has dual temperature settings for white and red wines February 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whynter Wine Cooler Excellent wine cooler! Fit perfectly under counter replacing trash compactor. Good temp control, fairly quiet, good design. February 25, 2015
