Customer Reviews

Review 1:
I couldn't find any reviews on this particular item from Cuisinart, so it looks like I may be the first. There appeared to be a lot of dissatisfaction with their 8-space single temperature unit, so I opted to spend more to get extra bottle space and go for the dual zone. I've had it for three weeks now and it's perfect for my needs and is working beautifully. I drink mostly cabernets and sav blancs, so those bottle styles fit without scraping. I have a chardonnay bottle that I had to turn around and place head first so the bottom of the bottle is what's showing, but at least it works. It is quiet - if you lean in closely, you can hear a soft whirring fan, but otherwise, quiet as a mouse. It is placed on a countertop of a built-in unit in my small condo living room, so it's in a pretty open space and has room to breathe. There is a drip-tray that slides in the bottom and I've checked for water and haven't seen any. It chilled quickly - I have the white zone set to 40 and the red zone set to 63 and am very happy with the temperature feel of the bottles and the wine when I remove and serve. It looks really cool at night with the lights on, but I mostly keep them off. Lastly, I do use a Vacu-Vin cork sometimes and have found that I'm able to re-seal a bottle, place in the unit and close the door. (The Vacu-Vin cork adds length to the bottle, but the glass in the doors is mounted so that there's room.) If I come up with anything else, I'll update this review, but I have to say I'm happy with my purchase and having fun keeping it stocked!

Review 2:
Our first purchase of this wine cellar and it didnt even turn on, returned no problems with Amazon. Second try and it works, it looks great but thats about the best of it.
It depends on the outside temperature, so in winter the red wine is not warm enough and in summer the white wine is not cold enough. We'd say if you really like your wine at the right temperature just spend the money and get a proper one.
