This was a tough purchase! I've read many reviews from both here and on Amazon about wine coolers and how they can be potentially flawed; either they don't keep the right temperature or they're too noisy when billed as "whisper quiet," or they just plain break down. And these negative reviews seem to cover all the brands so how does one choose? After choosing the model that seemed "less" likely to break down, we got the Wine Enthusiast Silent 18, and so far--we're into week 3 with the unit--it's living up to its name. It's whisper quiet, even when the fan goes on, and has kept a steady 55 degrees in both the top and bottom sections. It does kick out some warm air in the back and on the sides, so it needs to be in a well ventilated area. All in all, we're very satisfied!

We use this in our finished basement for keeping wine at ready to drink temperature. While the bottom half seems fine, the top half REFUSES to keep the temperature where its set. We use the top half for reds, and want the temp to be somewhere in 60 - 63 degrees (its actually set to 66). But, the top half is NEVER even close to 66 - its usually about 8-9 degrees BELOW that, so our reds are always too cold. We've had the wine fridge for just over a year, and the top half has never kept the temperature as warm as its been set to.

Overall, it's ok and I guess decent for the cost, but it is very annoying that even though it claims you can have 2 different temp settings, one of them does not work well.

Comments about Wine Enthusiast Silent 18 Bottle Touchscreen Wine Refrigerator (2-Temp):

I purchased this wine fridge specifically to house some of my nicer wines. Unfortunately, I have had problems from the beginning with maintaining a constant temperature for the bottom half of the fridge. I set it to 53 deg but it has consistently dropped from that and ranges from 44 to 51 deg. One of the most important things about cellaring wine is to keep constant temperature and I fear that some of my nice wines now have been ruined because of this. I'm very disappointed and would not recommend this product.

nice look, good refrigeration, too small

By David

Pros

  • Dual zone temps
  • Nice Style

Cons

  • Many bottles don't fit
  • Too small

    Comments about Wine Enthusiast Silent 18 Bottle Touchscreen Wine Refrigerator (2-Temp):

    My wife and I have just started to get into wine. This is our first wine fridge. We bought this particular one because of the dual temperature zone feature. The dual zones work well and it looks nice. Our only complaint is size. The shelves are too close together and the refrigerator isn't deep enough. Some bottles didn't fit or had to be squeezed in, pressing against the shelf above making it unstable.
    I would recommend it because it does get the job done. Could just be better.

      He likes red. I like white. This is the best wine cooler we've ever had. And we've had a few. It looks nice, is quiet, and the temperature stays where you put it.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was when they said it would be. And it was in fine condition.

            this cooler is super super quiet and gets cold fast. You do not hear it unless your 2 feet away and all you hear is the small fan spin when it does spin. Its like a small computer fan, 2 or three of them in there and thats all you hear. Very elegant design as well!

                    This product provides convenient storage of a few bottles (18), at just the right temperature for preservation, and use. It occupies very sittle sspace in my dining room, and is convenient to the table and kitchenette.

                      I use this refrigerator for storing the red and white wines I will soon consume at their serving temperatures. I store the reds at 62 degrees and the whites at 46 degrees. The refrigerator is very quiet. It sits in an area between my living room and kitchen, and I don't even notice it's there. When the door is opened to remove a bottle the temperature returns to the set level relatively quickly. It does exactly what I expected it to and I'm very satisfied with it.

                      Bought this because if fit a "gap" in our kitchen island almost exactly. Matches our granite counter top nicely too. We're not "wine-ies" but do enjoy the occasional vino, so the rather small capacity suits our needs well. Overall very happy with the purchase; price was right, [...] and quality of build was more than acceptable.
