What is the clearance required when this unit is adjacent to a return wall? Is there a restriction clip that can stop the door at 90 degrees and will that allow the drawers to still pull out all the way?
liane c on Sep 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This unit will require 2" at the top open and unobstructed and 1/2 " space on each side. The handle is integrated or recessed in the door so it does not require extra space to open against a return wall. Yes the shelves are fully functional with the door open at 90 degrees. If the unit is not built in with cabinetry and is free standing it does come with an L-bracket that will secure it to the wall.
Can I change the hinges on the door so that it opens from the opposite side? I'm moving my Eurocave and need the door to open in the opposite direction. Thank you!
Denny on Sep 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe so although I've not done it myself. You might have to check with Wine Enthusiast to see whether you need a different door. That appears to be the only issue. Wish I could answer more directly but I am not sure.
How does this unit compare with Eurocave's premiere, pure and revelation models?
Ryan H on Jul 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All the models mentioned share the same cooling / heating system. Most of the other details vary among all the models, & you can compare them yourself.
The MAIN difference that distinguishes the Perfomance 259 from ALL the others listed is the DEPTH of the unit. All the other models are 27 1/4" deep. This one is 22 1/4" deep. If you can accommodate the 27 1/4" depth, you are better off getting one of the deeper models, as the greater depth not only allows greater bottle capacity, but is also WAY more forgiving of mixing bottles of different shapes. I have used Eurocaves of both depths, and urge you to get one the deeper models if you are able to. (I currently don't have that option.)
That said, they both function equally well, and if you, like me, need the shallower depth, the Perfomance 259 is the one to get.
how many bottles will it hold if standard bottles of wine?
Billy D on Jun 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The specs say "Up to 165 bottles." That is an optimistic best-case estimate based on standard Bordeaux-style bottles. Any other bottle shape will decrease capacity. Although the pull-out shelves make it easier to access individual bottles, they significantly decrease storage capacity vis-a-vis the wooden shelves on which the bottles stack on top of each other. Since the dual-temp unit ships with more sliding shelves than the 1-temp, it will have a lower capacity by default. You can buy extra wooden shelves and dispense with all the sliding shelves if the added capacity is that important. It's impossible to give you a "number", as it depends on so many factors.
My unit came with a plastic box of rocks (or at least that is what it seems to be). I assume this is to rest on the bottom under the wire rack to absorb excess condensation? Can't find anything in the manual or online.
Albert on Dec 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Actually, just the opposite! It is to be used to INCREASE the humidity if needed, If you look at the diagram on pg. 22 of the manual (section 1 of the English part), you will see that part "J" is labeled as the "Humidity Cassette." If you then look on pg. 34, section 7, sub-section IV "Humidity level display", the paragraph & illustration on the right describe pouring water on the Humidity Cassette to increase the humidity in the unit.

I find that it is far easier and less messy to simply take the Humidity Cassette to the sink and soak it, then shake off the surface water & slide it back under the bottom rack. The idea is that the "rocks"slowly release the humidity over an extended period of time, without standing water, which could encourage the growth of nasty things. That said, I live in NYC, and most of the year I have no need to use it, as the humidity in the cellar is OK without it.
The solid wood panel can be any color or only the one shown? Thx
Svetlana K on Oct 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes that is correct, we do offer this in the Glass door with Brushed Aluminum trim also. The solid panel door is an overlay that is supplied by you or your contractor.
