If you love wines, you can’t bring yourself to liking the idea of storing your wine with other stuff in the fridge. You want a separate place for your wine and so a brand new, cool-looking, and boastful wine cooler has to come in the house. However, it needs some exploration and researching from you to find the right cooler for storing your wines and keeping them at the perfect temperature. There are many types of wine coolers for you choose from, but here the main factors that will help you pick the best one out of the bunch.
Tips to Buy the Right Wine Cooler
Consider the Capacity
The first thing you want to know about is the capacity of the chiller. How big of a collection of wine do you have in the house? The size of the cooler you pick has to be according to your wine collection. Of course, you can’t store more than 50 different wine bottles in a small fridge that goes under the kitchen countertop. While compact solutions are great, they are not suited for people with big collections of their favorite wines.
Compare Single vs. Dual Zone Coolers
You have a choice to make here. You can go with the single zone chillers or the dual zone refrigerators. Which one you pick depends on your requirements. With a single zone cooler, you have the same temperature throughout the refrigerator. On the other hand, you have two zones in a dual zone unit with different temperatures. Why do you need a fridge with two temperature zones? You need one when you have to different types of wines that taste best at two different temperatures. In most cases, you want to go with such a fridge when you store white wines and sparkling wines in the same unit.
Consider the Cooling Mechanism
You have two different types of cooling mechanisms that you will usually find in wine coolers. You have the thermoelectric as well as the compressor-cooled options to choose from. Both these options have their pros and cons. When it comes to fridges with compressors, their biggest con is the small humming sound they make when the compressor is on. The advantage of this type of fridge is that you can get the amount of cooling you want. Thermoelectric wine coolers are very quiet but you might not be able to achieve the temperature you want to with these types of coolers. Pick the one that best addresses your needs.
Of course, you will also have to look at the price of the unit before you purchase it. However, when it comes to passion for something, people don’t really look at the price tags. If price was really a problem in love for wine, you would not have such a cool collection of wines in the first place. If you are looking for a fridge, it is indicative of the fact that you have a wine collection and that you like to drink your wines at the perfect temperature while holding the proper wine glass from the stem.
