Works for more than just wine, easy to program temp.
4 November 2013
Summary: I bought this Haier Wine Chiller to replace a previous model, by another maker, which broke after only a year. I have now had this one running non stop for two years...that alone has proved it was worth the money. The best feature is the ability to set the temperature. This allows me to keep Single Malt Whiskies in the unit instead of wines. I like to have the whisky chilled without having ice cubes to dilute the whiskey.
Summary: I've had this wine cooler for about a year now and have no complaints so far. It does everything it's advertised to do, and is very quiet. My wife would like it to go below 46 degrees, but most of the coolers appear to only go that low. A wish list improvement would be to accommodate larger size bottles, but still fits 6 total bottles.
Summary: I purchased this wine cooler less than two months ago. It has never worked right. It will stay at the temperature you set it at for a few days then the temperature will go up to 80 degrees for a few days then all of a sudden the temperature will drop again. Very unreliable. tried to return it to Amazon but was told I was too late by one week. Tried contacting Haier and was told to take it to repair shop 35 miles away.
Summary: I never review anything I buy but I decided I should with this purchase. I debated on this wine cooler based on the reviews of it being noisy. I bought it anyway and am so happy I did. Unless you walk right up to it and listen you really don't hear anything. I have it next to my refrigerator but notice no noise difference in my kitchen whatsoever. Keeps perfect temperature. Love the small size as it fits under my cabinets. Couldn't be happier.
Summary: This little wine cellar (actually, a small fridge) works wonderfully and it is attractive. And not noisy. My only nit to pick is that there are realistic limitations to its wine-chlling capacity; in extreme heat (e.g., 90F.+), the temperature cannot be lowered as much as may be desired. It's not an important issue but worthy of note, especially if you, like we, receive delivery in the midst of an unusual (Connecticut) heat wave.
