Wine sipping can become even more pleasant if the drink has been cooled previously; this is why wine refrigerators had to be invented. If you know that you are a constant party thrower or you regularly invite wine drinkers over, perhaps you ought to consider the size of the wine refrigerators that you are studying as an option in the appliance store. Some wine refrigerators can store 12 bottles or even less inside, while others can go up to 700 bottles. These that store a greater number of bottles are also called wine cooling cabinets.
The wine coolers can – like any other refrigerators – rely on a compressor system or on a thermoelectric system that keeps the temperature low. The former has the disadvantage that it is noisier while the latter is more silent and it is also environment-friendly using less energy. Wine refrigerators can be built-in or free-standing like any other type of refrigerators. Either way the exterior designs make them very smart-looking and most models are nowadays provided with a digital system that can help you control the temperature inside. They have become quite a fashion so prices are not so high as some might imagine; manufacturers are surely interested in selling as many as possible in order to gain profit, so the price range has to stay within affordability limits.
Drinkers of both white and red wine rely on dual zone wine refrigerators. These coolers have two separate compartments in which temperature can be easily adjusted independently from each other. Many of the refrigerators have a system based on which racks holding bottles can be slid out easily and elegantly so wine connoisseurs can enjoy the preview of what awaits them in the future when selecting one bottle out of the many inside the cabinet. Furthermore wine connoisseurs know that wine and red wine should be stored at different temperatures, so they most likely will choose to have dual zone wine refrigerators. It is not snobbery, some say it is mere knowledge.
As for the size of wine refrigerators the regular home owners should choose, the recommendation is to take into account whether they are new or old in the purchase and storage of wine. If you are green in this area, it is recommended to buy a wine cooler that provides more space inside than you think it would be necessary. The racks and the space between them also should make you think of whether you would like to store other types of bottles that exceed the regular wine bottle size range as it is with champagne bottles for instance.
