wht does the cut out dimms mean

Asked by: finn
That's what you need to cut out (dimensions) the cabinet to make sure this fits. Just make sure you consider the handle in case it's higher. I think this model it's the same as cut-out so that's good.

Customer Reviews

Elite 40-Bottle Seamless Stainless Steel Door Dual Zone Built-In Wine Refrigerator is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from High level of design and quality This is your standard big and heavy 24" wine refrigerator. I was looking for a a dual door like this instead of a single door version. It's a good looking unit. Sits perfect to dimensions and is standard all around. Shelving is removable and is very nice. It cools evenly and keeps the cool well. Pleased with everything about the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love it First time we've readily agreed on something in a long time. This is a winner. I woudn't say it's the most feature packed or extravagant unit but it fits perfectly with our expectations on price and value. It definitely has that sturdy feel on all the trimmings and the unit cools nicely in both zones. I especially like the fact that the there is an extra large top area on one side for bigger sized bottles. I don't mind recommending this even it's only after 8 months of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, Quiet, and Spacious... Installed the Elite Dual Zone in an island. It keeps the bottles at temp and looks nice as well. We aren't connoisseurs so our needs are strictly for entertaining and not long term wine storage. The unit is very quiet but I am certain that you would have more noise if the unit is not installed in a cabinet. The feature that we like is the open door alarm. This has sounded several times as guest do not always shut the door completely. I had looked at several wine fridges and this one was a better value than most. We have owned three other fridges in different homes over the years. I feel that this is the best one that we have owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I looked at A LOT of wine refrigerators online and read all the reviews from others before deciding on this model. I love it! The look is so great and I couldn't be happier. We purchased two to place at the end of our kitchen island under the granite counter. It is a little noisy when the compressor is running but nothing to dissuade my recommendation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great "Beverage Center" - very versatile! Like that interior construction allows to store not just wine but beer, cans of soft drinks, bottles of water. Also love the french doors - don't take up much room when open and can open the side you want. Greato have a soft beep alarm when you don't close the door completely. So many great advantages I never even thought about wanting!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful - Just a little noisy This wine fridge is very nice. It's elegant as well as sturdy. The double doors and stainless steel (including on the front of the shelves) make it very attractive. I like the fact that it can be used as a stand-alone or built in. It's a tad bit noisy but doesn't bother us. I would prefer that the temperature could go lower then 41. Overall, a great wine fridge.

The product never did work as there was an issue with the temperature panel. When I called the manufacturer to attempt to trouble shoot, they were not helpful at all and provided few options to resolve the issue. I would not touch this product nor any other product from this manufacturer. The Home Depot people were extremely helpful in resolving the issue - it was refreshing to deal with their representatives.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from PROBABLY OK FOR THE CASUAL WINE DRINKER This is my second wine cooler. I loved the features of my first cooler (which I had for 4 years), an Avanti, but lots of problems with the cooler and trying to deal with Avanti cross country. So, for a replacement, I wanted to have a local store such that I could return it locally instead of having to ship it back if it was damaged or not working correctly. Home Depot carries the Whynter 40 bottle Elite (shipped to store) and it received pretty good reviews. For the reviews of those purchasing this cooler shipped from Amazon, the bad ones were due to the cooler being damaged when received. By picking the cooler up at Home Depot I could check for damage before accepting it (it was ok). The only "feature" I dislike is that the temperature readouts and control panel are inside the right section of the unit. It is much more convenient to have the controls and readouts on the outside of the cooler as was the case with my Avanti unit. I must admit being aware that that the control panel and temp readouts were inside the cooler before purchasing the unit, so I really cannot complain after the fact. I do much prefer the "French Door" zone separation much more than the single door "Upper and Lower" zone separations I have looked at. And, this cooler runs much quieter and less frequently than my previous cooler. In regard to performance, this cooler is experiencing about a 6 degree (F) variance in its temperature maintenance for each of its two zones. The side for my whites is set at 50 degrees and its readings for the past week vary from 49 to 55. The side for my reds is set at 60 degrees and the readings vary from 56 to 62. I have checked the temps using both a good analog refrigerator thermometer as well as a recently purchased high/low digital thermometer which has good reviews for accuracy. I will also point out that the unit's temperature readouts alway display the "50" and "60" temps even when the thermometers I test with show otherwise; apparently the cooler's readouts are just the temps set by the user. In doing a little on-line research on temperature variance for wine storage, apparently for the casual wine drinker a 5 or 6 degree variance is not a super serious detriment to the stored wines. I did give serious consideration to returning this cooler to Home Depot for a refund and purchasing a higher priced cooler from another local store, but now have decided to keep it unless something goes wrong with it during its return timeline. I also purchased the very pricey extended warranty which I still might return. I am recommending this product, but with the caveat that it might not be suitable for wine consumers more finicky than myself and that I have not had the unit long enough to make a recommendation on its quality.
