Why Do I Need a 15-inch Wine Fridge?
15-inch wine and beverage coolers are designed to fit into the space once occupied by a standard trash compactor. A wine refrigerator allows you to store your wine under the right conditions without investing in a wine cellar. Wine is a delicate substance that must be stored at a steady 55 degrees Fahrenheit in a dedicated space that is dark, free from unnecessary movement and with the right humidity. Wine refrigerators provide the ideal storage environment while requiring little to no setup.
Benefits of Owning a Wine Refrigerator
Owning a 15-inch wine fridge provides multiple benefits. A wine refrigerator provides the ideal environment for properly storing your wine collection. Wines can be fragile as they are sensitive to light, temperature, improper humidity, and vibration. If stored long-term in the kitchen refrigerator, your wine may become too cold and experience dry conditions that will cause cork shrinkage. The cupboard has inconsistent temperatures that may be too warm for wine. Vinotemp’s wine refrigerators with front exhausts can fit seamlessly under the counter or recessed into cabinetry, giving you a space-saving storage solution. Suppose you already have a large wine cellar in your home. In that case, a wine refrigerator can be set to serving temperature, ensuring you always serve your guests' wine at the proper temperature.
What is the Difference Between Built-in and Freestanding?
While shopping for a wine refrigerator, you may be debating whether to purchase a built-in or freestanding wine cooler. Freestanding wine refrigerators are standalone appliances with rear exhausts. Freestanding models should not be installed into cabinetry, under the counter or a table. The primary benefit of owning a freestanding wine cellar is that it can be moved as required and requires little to no setup. Built-in wine coolers, sometimes called under-counter wine fridges, have a front exhaust. Built-in models can be integrated into cabinetry for a seamless appearance.
How to Find the Right Wine Cooler for You
Shopping for the best wine and beverage cooler can be intimidating; there are many sizes, finishes, and features to choose from. Before you invest in a wine cooler, there are several factors to consider. First, consider the space where you will install your wine refrigerator --- should it be freestanding or built-in? Do you have room for a wine cooler that holds 50 bottles or 300? Next, decide what finish you prefer; stainless, black, or panel ready.
Additionally, decide whether you require a wine cooler with multiple temperature zones or a single-zone wine cooler. Dual-zone wine fridges can be used to store wine at serving or storage temperature or to organize wine by varietal. Are you buying more than one wine cooler? If so, consider a model with right or left door swings or reversible ones.
How to Get the Most from Your Wine Fridge
Extending the life of your wine cooler is easy. After you unpack your wine fridge, ensure it is installed in a spot that is perfectly level and can fully support the weight of your wine cooler when fully loaded with wine. Select a dark location where the appliance will not be exposed to direct sunlight for long periods. Unless specified, the wine cooler should be installed inside an insulated room with the proper ambient temperature range. Just like a kitchen refrigerator, wine coolers should be cleaned regularly. You can clean your wine cooler with a damp cloth. Check out the owner’s manual of your specific wine cooler for cleaning instructions. By carefully installing your wine cooler and cleaning it regularly, you will prolong the life of your wine fridge for many years.
