EdgeStar 26 Bottle Dual Zone Stainless Steel Built-In Wine Cooler – /Stainless Steel – Great wine fridge for the price

I received my unit with a damaged grill. First email sent apparently had transmission problems, second email had immediate email reply, damaged replacement part was received in two days. Unit looks very nice, have not placed it in-service as of this date.

However, the top section (for reds) is small and fits only 7 bottles (5 on one shelf and 2 down the side of the controls. Manual says 8, but i don’t see how. Bottom section could hold 15 on the 3 shelves and probably another 5 on the bottom (which isn’t really a shelf, it just sits on the bottom). So 27 bottles in all, but mostly for white because bottom sections highest temp is 54f. Docked a star because of lack of red wine storage vs white/rose. Lock is nice, lighting is good. Confusing controls until you figure it out (or read the manual). Overall happy with purchase.

Works perfectly in our wet bar area.

We used this to replace our outdated trash compactor and it worked out great. Low noise and nice blue light inside to illuminate the shelving. Slide out shelves are narrow and must be handled with care. This wine fridge will not hold the larger base wine bottles. If you are looking for something small and efficient this is it.

Had this unit for a little over a year. Com and told me it was a relay starter and referred me to an on line video that shows how to replace it myself. They have no technicians they can recommend for repair. After trying to find a repair company in my area that services wine coolers with no luck, i contacted edgestar again and they did provide me the name of their warranty company so i called them and after explaining the situation they were able to assign a tech. Once the tech came out and confimred it was the relay switch, we had to order it from repairclinic. Edgestar customer service is good but the fact that most of the repairs are expected to be self completed is a turn off.

This wine cooler has performed flawlessly since day one. It is very attractive with it’s dark glass and blue lights.

  • Overall it works fine, though I do have a few minor gripes
  • Compact Wine Fridge that does the job
  • Shipping was fast and packaging was good. The cooling system works well but there is

Works great but only small bottles really fit. Not enough red wine space for me either.

Overall it works fine, though i do have a few minor gripes: – the upper section is too small. It only really holds about 5 bottles – it does not support setting the temp in either section to whatever temperature you like. Instead, the top and bottom sections only allow a specific temperature range so you are limited to the quantity of wine you can put in the refrigerator depending on the section. – it is a bit on the noisy side when it cycles on – it is a bit short (not really under the counter height). They could have added an inch to the height of the unit which would have allowed for bigger bottoms on one of the shelves.

We’ve had no issues with the operation or installation of this. Works great and holds ample bottles of wine. Relatively quiet too, which is nice.

Fits into our kitchen and space well.

Bought this to replace the broken trash compactor. I get a lot more use from the wine cooler than i ever did from the trash compactor.

Features

26 Bottle Wine Capacity Capacity based on standard Bordeaux style wine bottles with a diameter of 2.75″. To accomodate larger bottles you may remove a shelf, keep in mind this will decrease the stated bottle capacity.

Elegant Design The sleek stainless steel trim door, matching slide-out stainless steel trimmed shelves and soft LED interior lighting provide a timeless design to showcase your treasured collection. Whatever the setting, these units are sure to spark conversation about their attractive and pleasing aesthetic.

Digital Controls

One of the most important elements of a cooling system is the controls. They should be accessible, easily understood, and provide you with accurate information on the exact temperature you are attempting to achieve. The intuitive touch control and digital temperature display allow you to easily adjust and monitor the desired temperature based on your specific cooling needs.

Tinted Glass

UV rays can cause a host of problems for any wine collection. In addition to providing unwanted heat, which puts needless strain on your cooling unit, exposure to UV light can alter the chemical makeup of your wine, potentially affecting taste and maturation. The tinted glass door ensures that while your wine bottles are visible, the integrity of your wine is protected from the potential harm of harsh light and UV rays.

Shelf Bottle Arrangement

This shelf layout will allow you to achieve the maximum bottle capacity based on a ‘Typical Bordeaux’ bottle.

Great wine cooler to replace an old trash compactor. Fits pretty good in the space.

This fridge looks very nice and is very quiet. The shelves don’t slide very smoothly and seem a bit cheap. The locking feature is great since i have a toddler that is into everything. I believe the capacity of this cooler is 26 bottles, but it would be tough to squeeze that many in, imho. The top zone is quite small (maybe 5 bottles). This works for my purposes but for a serious wine collector, the small capacity may be an issue.

This unit works well; some problems with ice building up at the back when it’s humid, which is rare where i live. It replaces a trash compacter quite nicely and it is attractive; i don’t care for black or stainless steel (and it would look good with either) but using it as a built-in enough wood shelving shows for it to fit nicely in my kitchen. Under-counter, it would be nicer if it were about 3 inches taller; there’s about a 4-inch gap to cover.

Doesn’t really hold 26 regular bottles otherwise nice quite operation. Nice features,perfect for under counter use. Would like to se better shelf design.

Read many reviews on this class of product before purchasing. Packaging for shipment was excellent. Actually the fully boxed wind refrigerator was packed inside a box which was boxed again with an exterior box with protective foam corners. Do notice a bit of noise when in its high cooling cycle. But not an issue since it is near the kitchen area. Actual size was accurate and important since i had already roughed out a spot in the existing kitchen bar cabinet.

But the compressor is a little noisy.

Four (4) shelves in the lower section; Two (2) shelves in the upper section

The unit arrived in good condition. It is a stylish cooler, that fits a good amount of bottles. The reason i gave it four stars vs five is because i think it the shelves could pull out a bit farther and also because of the noise. It’s not extremely loud, but i wouldnt say it’s quiet either. If the house is quiet i can hear it in the next room. A little less noise would be preferrable, but for the price we paid compared to others it is a good value.

The cooler fit very well and was easy to set up. We’ve had it for several months and are very happy with its performance. The only negative is the bright blue temperature lights. I wish there was a way to dim them a little.

Shipping was fast and packaging was good. The cooling system works well but there is a hum sound it makes at night. Not too loud but noticeable.

We’ve had our wine fridge for about 6 months now & still love it. It replaced our trash compactor & fit perfectly. It looks great, & i love the duel temp zones. For the price, you can’t find anything else close. Update: we’ve had this for 2. 5 years & it still runs beautifully.
