What are Built in Wine Fridges & Under Counter Wine Coolers?

Simply put, they merely describe the same type of unit. And that is, a wine cooler/fridge that is positioned under a counter, or in other words is built-in to the counter.

These kind of units are very popular as it allows the wine cooler to blend in with the environment, without standing out. The units that we’ll be discussing are a combination of undercounter compressor wine coolers & thermoelectric wine coolers.

 

Where are Built in Wine Coolers usually used?

Under counter wine coolers are most commonly used in a kitchen, bar or entertainment zone, whether that is for commercial or personal use.

As suggested, they are usually used as built-in wine units.

 

Are Under Counter Wine Fridges available in different sizes?

With these specific types of units being designed to be placed under counters, they are usually available in sizes from 15″ to 35″ in height.

As far as each built in wine coolers capacity, it usually ranges from around 8 to 30 bottles.

General Specs
  • 12 bottle wine chiller (750ml bottles)

  • Digital control panel & LCD screen

Description
This 12-bottle wine cooler by Super Deal is a very affordably priced 12-bottle wine cooling fridge.

The unit also measures at 25″ in height, similar to the Ivation 12-bottle unit. However, the key difference and disadvantage to the Super Deal unit is it’s temperature range, with it only being able to control temperatures between 50 and 64°F, when the Ivation 12-bottle unit can control temperatures between 46º – 64ºF… So if you’re a fan of chilled wine, the Ivation may be more suitable for you.

However, there is a $50 difference between these two 25″ units.

The Super Deal unit has a digital temperature control located at the top of the unit, and has double-paned glass with an anti-UV protection layer, which is ideal if you’re storing darker wines in here such as red wine, helping minimize the effects of light exposure.

This cooler also has slide-out chrome shelving, which is ideal for cleaning purposes and if you want to re-arrange the cabinet.

This unit is ideal for someone looking for a cheaply priced 25″H wine cooler, who wants to potentially chill around 12 bottles of wine simultaneously in a single-zone unit.

As previously mentioned, it has a temperature range spanning from 50°F to 64°F, which is ok considering the price.

Description

The unit also measures at 25″ in height, making it a lot taller than the 8-bottle version.

It’s important to note that this wine cooler operates best when the room temperature is around 72ºF.

It has a digital control panel, with LCD display, soft interior lighting which can be turned on/off, a dual-pane, smoked glass door to prevent light exposure from spoiling the wine and a tight seal to help maintain internal temperature and humidity.

This cooler also has slide-out chrome shelving, which is ideal for cleaning purposes and if you want to re-arrange the cabinet.

This unit is ideal for someone looking for a 25″H wine cooler, who wants to potentially chill around 12 bottles of wine simultaneously in a single-zone unit. Ideally, it would be perfect as an under-counter/built-in wine cooler for use in anyone’s home kitchen, home bar, dining area or entertainment zone.

It has a temperature range spanning from 46°F to 64°F, which is relatively good for a unit at this price range.


 

Nutrichef Thermoelectric 12 Bottle Wine Cooler Refrigerator – 25.0″H

Technical Specs
  • Dimensions: 9.9″ x 19.7″ x 25″
  • Weight: 28.2lbs
  • Temperature range: 50º – 64ºF
  • Package includes: 1 x Thermoelectric Wine Fridge, 1 x Instruction
  • Warranty: N/A
General Specs
  • 12 bottle wine chiller (750ml bottles)
  • Temperature control & digital display
  • Reinforced glass door with an air-tight seal
  • In-built circulation & ventilation fan
  • LED interior lighting
  • Ultra-quiet operation
Description
This 12-bottle thermoelectric wine cooler is a unit created by Nutrichef.
It measures 25″ in height, has a reinforced glass door with an air-tight seal to make sure that it maintains a chilled internal temperature.
Additionally, because this is a thermoelectric unit, and they have no internally moving compressor parts, it means that this unit is ultra-quiet in its operation.
One slight negative about this unit is that it’s not able to achieve the same level of cooling temperatures when comparing it against other units, with it only being able to chill down to a temperature of 50°, with an upper limit of 66°F.
Thus, if you’re looking to cool white wine to a very low temperature, we’d recommend potentially looking at another 12-bottle unit. For example, the Ivation 12 Bottle Wine Cooler/Chiller is capable of chilling to around 46°.
Overall, it’s not a bad unit, although there may be alternatives that are deemed more attractive in both their features and price.


Koldfront TWR187ESS 18 Bottle Dual Zone Wine Cooler with Safety Lock – 25.33″H

Editor’s Recommended wine cooler around 25″ in height

Technical Specs
  • Dimensions: 14″ x 22.25″ x 25.33″
  • Weight: 35.4lbs
  • Temperature range:
    • 54º – 66ºF (upper zone)
    • 46º – 66ºF (lower zone)
  • Package includes: 1 x Wine Fridge, 1 x Instruction
  • Warranty: N/A
General Specs
  • 18 bottle wine chiller (750ml bottles)
  • Digital control panel & LCD screen
  • Dual-zone with individual temperature controls
  • Removable wooden shelving
  • Tempered glass door
  • Safety lock on door
  • LED interior lighting
Description
The TWR187ESS 18 Bottle Wine Cooler by KoldFront comes with everything you need from an under-counter wine cooler.

Firstly, it features dual-zone functionality, with the ability to control the temperature in both sections. The top section has the ability to chill from the temperatures of 54° to 66°F (ideal for your red wine), whilst the bottom zone from 46° to 66°F (ideal for your white wine and rose). This is perfect for anyone who’s looking at chilling both red wine/white wine and rose at the same time, because as we know, we don’t want to chill red wine at the same temperature as the white.

As for the height of the unit, it measures in at just a little over 25″ (25.33″ to be exact).

Probably one of the best features, from a safety standpoint is the safety lock on this wine cooler. This means that you can rest assured that no-one can open the unit, which is especially useful if you have children, as wine bottles can be heavy.

One of the other nice features (from an aesthetic point) of this unit is the wooden shelving, which gives it a premium look. These shelves can also be removed for cleaning purposes.
Overall, we think this unit is a fantastic built-in wine cooler, and has plenty of great, useful features that will be attractive for most readers.

The unit chills from roughly 53° to 66°F, and therefore it may not be suitable for those who are looking to get their white wine nice and chilled. For that, we’d recommend another 18-bottle unit, such as the Koldfront TWR187ESS, which we reviewed above.

One major positive aspect regarding Nutrichef is that they provide a 1-years manufacturers warranty with this item.

Overall, we think this is a good wine cooler, but there are better 18-bottle options such as the Koldfront TWR187ESS if you’re looking at getting your wine ultra-chilled.

Ivation 18 Bottle Thermoelectric Wine Chiller with Door Lock – 25.4″H

Technical Specs
  • Dimensions: 13.6″ x 20″ x 25.4″
  • Weight: 33.1lbs
  • Temperature range: 54º-64°F
  • Package includes: 1 x Thermoelectric Wine Fridge, 1 x Instruction
  • Warranty: N/A
General Specs
  • 18 bottle stainless steel wine chiller (750ml bottles)
  • Thermo-electric cooling technology
  • Digital touch-button display temperature controls
  • Re-inforced glass door with an anti-UV layer
  • Airtight door seal
  • Internal LED
  • Ultra-quiet operation & vibration-free
  • CFC free
Description
This 18-bottle wine cooler by Ivation is a very sleek looking unit, which has digital touch-button temperature control, reinforced glass door with an anti-UV layer (helping prevent light exposure from spoiling your wine), and because it’s a thermoelectric unit, it’s also ultra-quiet in operation.

As for the temperature controls within the unit, it’s able to adjust between temperatures from 54º-64°F, which means that it’s probably more suited to house red wine, rather than white/rose, as there are other coolers around this price-range (NutriChef PKDSWC18 18 and other NutriChef products) which are capable of chilling to 46º.

One aspect of this unit that we particularly like is that it has a door lock, helping prevent anyone without the key opening the lock… After all, you want to keep all of your wine safe right.

However, the 18-bottle Koldfront TWR187ESS wine refrigerator also has a safety lock, has dual-zone functionality (2 sections for separate wine temperature control) and can cool to a temperature of 46º…. Which is more suited to housing white wine & red wine.

Overall, this is a decent unit for those who’re looking for an 18-bottle built-in wine cooler which has good overall review ratings and an in-built door locking system. However, as we mentioned, the Koldfront TWR187ESS seems to be the better option here.

  • Internal blue LED light
  • Ultra-quiet operation & vibration-free
Description
The EdgeStar CWR302SZ 30-bottle wine cooling system is a brand new unit that has just been released. We’ve featured it on the list because of the success and reputation of the previous version, which was a best-seller for a long time. 

This version has some incredibly useful features which include a carbon filter to prevent odors from affecting the wine in the fridge, a reversible hinge door, meaning that you can decide which way you want the door to open, from the left or right.

Additionally, the unit’s door has been specifically designed to keep cold air in, and UV & moisture out, with its double-paned tempered glass door with black-dotted tinting and tight seal.

One of the most impressive aspects of this cooler is its large temperature control range, which allows for adjustments between 40º-66°F. This means that you’ll be able to keep your white wine ultra-cool.

If we have any negative thing to say about this, it’s simply that it’s a single-zone unit… Hence if you’re going to put the temperature down to 40°F for your white wine, it means that your red wine will also be cooling at this temperature.

Therefore, if you’re looking for a unit which provides dual-zone functionality and can hold around 30 bottles, potentially take a look at the Phiestina 29 Bottle Wine Cooler system [See review below]

Additionally, the unit’s door has been specifically designed to keep cold air in, and moisture out with its internal fan and double-paned tempered glass door. It also has 6 slide-out wire shelves, perfect for cleaning and organizational purposes.

One of the most impressive aspects of this cooler is its large temperature control range, which allows for adjustments between 40º-66°F. This means that you’ll be able to keep your white wine ultra-cool.

If we have any negative thing to say about this, it’s simply that it’s a single-zone unit… Hence if you’re going to put the temperature down to 40°F for your white wine, it means that your red wine will also be cooling at this temperature.

Therefore, if you’re looking for a unit which provides dual-zone functionality and can hold around 30 bottles, potentially take a look at the Phiestina 29 Bottle Wine Cooler system [See review below]
