EdgeStar 80 QT Portable Fridge/freezer – Grey – so good. We tried it in the car and in

Cools instantly with very low power consumption.

We have a cabin in holopaw florida totaly off grid and this unit has saved the day. 3 amps dc on low setting and 5. It gets cold super fast and will freeze meat as well as keep milk and eggs cold at the same time. Glad i went with this bigger unit as it holds just enough for what i need. Ps digital readout on the side isn’t to accurate so just set low point disconnect on 10. 0 volts mine meter is off a bit but can’t justify sending it back for this minor reason as it works perfectly other wize.

Purchased this for the pass-through storage in our 5th wheel trailer, since we always run out of ice on summer trips to the lake. While this thing is pricey, it is exceptional in every way. It’s extremely sturdy, efficient, and even looks good. In no time, i was completely impressed with how much i could fit in the unit, and even more impressed with how quickly it cools from room temperature to 0 fahrenheit or lower.It has also worked flawlessly on 12v dc, while we’re on the road.

We tried it in the car and in the house. Would be nice if it came with a longer cord.

Great unit, holds up well over time.

We travel south in the winter and this keeps things frozen for days on end.

  • Dangerous Handles
  • Five Stars
  • woo hoo

Can’t say enough great things about this fridge.

To early to tell bought it for my rv ask me in 6 months.

It has performed well on both a/c and d/c. It holds the cold super well after unplugged even after a week. I will repost as time goes by as to if it keeps up the great job it’s doing right now. It goes on the boat this season. So far i am only using it as a freezer. I am impressed with how little it runs and it gets well below 0 degrees f. Weight is good/ light and capacity is very nice.

We’ve had this a couple of days and are pleased. I can’t say anything about service issues or how long it lasts. What i can say is, it’s quiet and it performs. For about 15 years, but the engel 84 qt. Currently costs over twice as much, and is heavier. The edgestar 80 uses more dc amps (5. However, we plan to use this mainly in the home.

The unit works very well get cold quick, doesn’t draw excessive power, my only complaint is the flimsy handles the second time my wife and i picked the unit up (both times empty) her handle popped out of the base on one side causing the unit to twist to the side, this totally dislodged my handle from the frame and it dropped to the floor, thank god it was on heavy carpeting and missed both our feet. I was left standing there with the ‘d’ handle in my hand.

Despite the fact that the first one i ordered broke two weeks into operation, i have to say i love this edgestar, and am pleased to give it another chance. This is due, in large part, to the excellent customer service i received from compact appliance when the first unit failed. I don’t know why the first one stopped running (sometimes, you get a lemon that gets by quality control), but compact appliance ignored the fact that the standard 30 days to return had already passed (by one or two days, due to the late start of my camping trip), and went above and beyond to exchange it for another model. They even paid the return postage.I love a business that stands by their product. As for the unit, the 80 qt is a nice size for week-long camping trips, it operates well with my little 200 w photo voltaic system, it doesn’t take up much space in my little camping trailer (converted from a 16′ cargo trailer), it is very quiet when in operation (a nice thing in a small camper). I have the replacement up and running now on house current as it will be my ‘cooler’ for a holiday party i am having. Then it will go into the pantry to hold fruits and vegetables at their ideal temperature for the winter (freeing up my refrigerator for other things). When it is not doing that, it will be with me on camping trips and be powered by a solar system. If i have any trouble with it from here on, you can be sure i will report it.

I have had this for 5 years and bang it around in the back of my 4×4 camping all the time. No problems and keeps stuff frozen. Runs overnight easily without draining my battery and i can run it almost indefinitely on a 100 watt solar cell.

I have had mine now going on seven years in the lower compartment of my motorhome and have nothing but great accolades for this unit. It finally quit and now i am looking for a repairman.

Really quite when it’s running and is insulated very well. Doesn’t use much power either. I have it in my small cabin running off of 200 watts of solar that powers the whole cabin. It was expensive but worth every penny since i don’t need to keep all my food in a cooler full of ice anymore.

For this first time in 17 years i can keep food frozen in the summer much better then a cooler. So nice to have the option of battery or power. In the winter we plan to use it as a fridge.

Storage for both fridge and freezer foods for added convenience

Provides cold drinks in our vfd rescue truck. Runs great off of shore line and genset.

Works like a charm, cools pretty fast, not too heavy to move in and out of vehicle (when empty) – one man can lift and move it. Seems very quiet and just works.

EdgeStar CWR1661SZ 166-Bottle Built-In Compressor Wine Refrigerator, Good for the price

I received the wine fridge just a few days after placing the order. It arrived intact without any freight damage. I followed the instructions regarding how to initially begin using the fridge and it has worked exactly as advertised (flawlessly) from the moment i plugged it in. I store this unit in a garage so compressor noise is not an issue for me. Overall, however, i think the unit operates very quietly. It will not hold 166 bottles unless all of them are the standard wine bottle size. I have five different wine bottle variations in my current inventory but i was still able to place 125 bottles in this unit without filling it to capacity. This is an excellent wine fridge for the money.

We bought this unit and it was delivered to us damaged. The door has a big dent in the frame that has caused the frame to separate. While this damage does not appear to inhibit functionality, i can’t stomach paying so much for a damaged item. I have followed up with the seller and am waiting for them to make this right. Update: the seller got back to me and offered a new door. Once i’ve received the new door, i’ll update this review to be more positive. Update #2: the replacement door also arrived damaged, badly. A 2nd replacement door was then sent by the seller, which arrived undamaged. I think it should be noted that the boxes were not damaged, so i don’t believe this damage was done during shipping. The unit now looks and functions as it should.

Bought it in nov 2014 and has been working great since. The wine is kept as desired and temperature keeps good. I have in the living room inside ac 78 degrees the most.

Comments from buyers

“Pleasantly surprised
, Attractive and easy to set up.
, Awesome Wine coolers!

. Excellent company stands behind there work.

We love this wine fridge and it is the envy of all our friends. This product didn’t disappoint and being tall and thin means it doesn’t take up a tremendous amount of space perfect for a corner.

After reading other reviews, i was a bit concerned about the shipping experience. My unit, however, showed up on time, the driver placed it in my garage and it arrived in perfect condition. People should be aware that the delivery driver is supposed to allow the customer to inspect an item prior to acceptance, even if that means the driver has to wait for the customer to remove all the packaging material. I purchased this for the bar in my restaurant and am very pleased with the unit itself. As others have stated: it’s quiet, looks very nice, holds the advertised number of bottles and maintains temperature. You do have to be a little careful pulling out the shelves, but i think for the price it’s a great deal.

Proskeeps my wine at the temperature i wantedlooks good in my barsolid constructioncompany was easy to deal with and rapid to correct door dent in unit i received. Very happy about thisreasonably priced. Cons (barely)hate the cheap freight companies that deliver these types of things – i don’t blame the supplier, that it just the state of the local freight companies. I really hate it when they schedule a delivery and then fail to show up that day,pallet under original shipping box was practically worthless. Unit can be a little louder than other refrigerators. As with all wine storage, non standard sized bottles will reduce the overall capacity of this unit.

It worked great for four years. I troubleshot it and determined the circuit board was faulty. Edgestar is shipping a new board at half price ($25). They recommended a surge protector which i will also install ($12 on amazon). Hopefully this will fix it and give me at least another four years. I have now installed the new board and it’s working great now.

The wine cooler has delivered as billed. Easy unpack, easy setup, runs like a champ. We even changed the door swing easily before we started using it. The only issue is that the expected delivery was 3 days overdo. Otherwise we are very pleased with the unit.

Have had this for nearly two years and love it. I can fit approximately 150 bottles due to many of our bottles being the rounder pinot-style. I was worried about noise and longevity, the former not being much of an issue at all and time will tell for the latter. Considering buying a second one.

I recently purchased the edgestar 166-bottle wine refrigerator. When i received the unit, it had a small dent in the side that the company graciously offered a replacement or small credit. I was very pleased with the quickness of their response. Overall, i think the unit is ok. I think the outer design is nice. It seems to cool fine and the capacity is not quite what they described, but neither are the different size bottles you get from different vineyards. I say would the capacity holds close to 150 to 155 bottles. My issue with the unit is 1) when the compressor comes on, it makes a loud noise and then quietens down. Not like the other refrigerators i own. 2) the rack don’t provide the best support when you pull them out if filled with wine.

Great wine storage unit and at a great price.

Overall, i’m happy with this purchase. We have had it for several weeks now (freestanding), and it seems to function as i had hoped. Update: after about 18 months, the unit stopped working. I called edgestar, and they determined that the problem was with one of the circuit boards. They sent me the new board (about $79) and links to instructions to install it. When i had problems with the installation, i called, and they went above and beyond to help me through it. While i’m not thrilled that something failed after 18 months, that seems to be a common story for most brands, from what i can tell. And the level of service provided by edgestar was outstanding. I would definitely buy from them again.

I just received my wine refrigerator. I had another brand that was three years old and going out. Quickly, i bought this one based on some reviews and the price. I will say for $1000 if this one last over three years, it was probably a good investment. I wasted 10 hours waiting for the truck before going to bed. My only wish on this model is the wine racks. I believe they are below average. Sure they appear to be holding up, but not made from wood and being on a roller makes the model look cheap.

This vendors product was exactly as advertised but the shipping turned out to be less satisfactory. When i ordered the product it was clearly stated that shipping was included in the price. However, what was not stated at all was that the delivery company would only leave the wine fridge at the loading dock of the building. Further, when it arrived it was crated which made it nearly impossible for us to inspect the product for damage or operational integrity. Plus it was left to us to get this 250 pound fridge across the entire parking garage and up to the apartment where we uncrated it and inspected it for damage, the driver was long gone by then. Fortunately the wine fridge turned out to be in good condition and so far has worked well. I suppose that when i saw that there was no additional delivery charge i should have realized that that was too good to be true.

Working well, easy to set-up. We have pinot noir bottles so we removed every other shelf and we just double stack bottles to fit. Will lose a little space, but figure we can still get 150-160 bottles in there. Seems to stay within 3 degrees of set temp. Now just hoping the longevity is there.

We have had this product for almost two months. So far it has exceeded our expectations. We made sure it sits level on the floor, we turned it on and let it cool for 24 hours before we stocked it. It is relatively quiet, and it does hold all different size bottles. We are very pleased with this product.

I purchased this wine cooler a few weeks ago, other than the hassle of getting it down the basement, it has been great. The temperature stays steady, the door works well, almost all of my red wine bottles fit easily. The larger ones i put on the bottom. The shelves are average, but for the price this is well worth it. Very easy to load and adjust temperature.

Iwe have had this for several months. The temperature is right on and it’s very quiet.

The 166 bottle wine refrigerator is exactly as presented. It is quiet and holds 166 standard wine bottles. It holds the temp +or- 1 degree of set point. The only issue i have experienced is that after a power failure the temp setting reverts to 54 degrees, which is not a big issue. I have only had it for 1 month but, at this point i would definitely buy it again.

This is a great product for the money spent. I would really like to find another that has slightly larger shelves accommodating pinot / syrah bottles and has smoother slide out shelves.

So far so good once we got it into the basement. It was hard to get down the stairs but looks great and works well.

Easy setup and customization. Liked my first one so much, i bought a partner unit – looks like a custom unit.

It’s only been a few weeks without any compressor issues. From all the reviews of pretty much any wine cooler, the compressor usually fails after 1-2 years. Some last 7, so you never know. This one is a great bargain. It keeps temperature +/- 2 degrees, but usually +/- 1 degree. You will have trouble fitting the bordeaux or pinot/syrah bottle. Careful of the labels getting scratched. This seems to be a common problem with most wine coolers.

EdgeStar FP430 43 Qt Portable Compact Refrigerator or Freezer AC/DC : Works great in our boat

I’ve owned this fridge for two years and taken it in my suv for many overland trips. I strap it down by the handles and although they are plastic they seem to hold up very well. The unit stays very cold even when the temperature in the vehicle is high. You can spend a lot more but you won’t get a better product.

It’s quiet, small enough for the boat, and it worked.

I received my new 43qt fridge and was very excited. I have an 86 quart model that i love. After 30 seconds, i get an hh on the temperature display. Looking it up on the web, it states that the room temperature is over 104 degrees. I have nothing around this fridge for 1 to 3 feet in every direction. I have my 86 quart across the room in this same room and it is having no problems. Instead of paying almost $100 to ship this (very) heavy fridge back, i sent an e-mail to customer support via their website. I received a confirmation e-mail stating that someone would contact me within 2 business days.

Faster than forecastawsome and heavyduty producr.

It kept our smoothies frozen for over a week in south texas, we would plug it into a wall outlet and night and the cigar outlet when traveling. It is very quite on the back seat on our f-150 supercab.

EdgeStar FP430 43 Qt Portable Compact Refrigerator or Freezer AC/DC : It is heavy and the inner space is not as big as i expected.

The unit was defective, right out of the box. After checking out the ‘advanced repair’ video i took it apart and discovered one wire of the the temperature sensor was pinched and the other wire was not connected at all. Once i did the fix all is good, however vey bad manufacturing qaqc to have this happen.

This is a great product for a camper van and seems to be quality built. It uses less than 4 amps of dc current to keep things very cold. It also works very well on 120v ac. I surrounded the cooler with an additional layer of polyisocyanurate insulation (leaving all vents uncovered) and the compressor runs very infrequently. The two solar cells i use easily handle it’s current draw. I am not saying the additional insulation that i used was necessary, however, i wanted that extra cusion of performance for very hot ambient temperatures or if i needed solar cells to recharge battery. Finally, compact appliance is a company easy to work with and eager to see that customers are satisfied with their products.

Pros:great pricegets to temp easilycons:a bit heavy but i don’t have another fridge of this type to compare it toi bought this for a recent camping trip. I used it straight for 2 months before just the trip and it ran great. It was able to make ice in bottled water. It kept our frozen food icy. I got the cover for it which kept it from getting scratched and dirty. I may try to keep it in the back of my pickup exposed to the elements on my next trip to see if it can handle the elements. I will update the review if i attempt this.

Nice product work great in my 18 wheelers, money saver for over the road drivers.

We bought this to use on an extended trailer trip. We debated getting it because of the cost, but it was absolutely the right decision. We are hooked on our morning greens and fruit smoothies and this kept our frozen veggies and fruit frozen for the whole trip. We used it to refreeze our blue ice packs to use in a little cooler as well so there was no need to buy ice for the cooler. It ran off the truck 12-volt while we were driving and plugged into ac at night. It switched automatically and we never had a problem with the freezer or the truck batteries.

Works amazingly and it can run for days on my back up battery.

Great deal and so much cheaper than camping world and not all plastic.

Works well, looks good in the office.

Has operated as advertised with no problems. Has run off vehicle battery for 3 days without vehicle running.

I ran this for the first half of the year and it performed well. The casing dents easily but isn’t affected performance. I use this in my campervan which shakes the crap out of it and it still has not come apart inside, so i’d say it’s solidly built.

This unit fit perfectly into our 30′ sailboat. With duel power options (ac/dc) it was easy to keep powered and keep cold. On shore-power we ran the unit down to 0*, then when cruising and using 12v the temperature would rise to around 30* but most items stayed frozen. This unit is heavy duty, easy to use and a value for the price.

I just got my freezer, and so far, so good, though i do have a couple of gripes. First, measuring the inside dimensions gives a capacity of 40 quarts, not 43. Maybe that’s not a very big deal, but the item title is wrong. Second, the ‘fast/flash freeze’ feature is not what i would consider ‘fast’. It took 1 1/2 hours on ac power to drop from 67 degrees to -8 degrees. Again, maybe that’s not a very big deal, and the time would be improved by placing already frozen items into the freezer, but i felt it was enough to drop a star. I will be using this freezer with my own battery at a farmer’s market this summer and will update my review to reflect my experiences there. I still have high hopes that it will perform admirably.

I am a truck driver and absolutely love this damn thing.

Holds a lot of food and drink, durable offroad, keeps everything cold and fresh. This will make ice without a problem. Definitely a great alternative to engle and arb. You can’t beat it for the money.

Liked the fact that after a 6 1/2 hour trip, i only had lost a 4 degree increase in temp so everything arrived still frozen. The dc cord was not long enough to reach the 12 volt outlet. I highly recommend this product.

Worked as expected great buy for the money. It’s on our sailboat and we love it.

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.

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.

When our wine cooler arrived, it had been damaged during shipment. Living direct stepped up and replaced the unit immediately. They could not have been more responsive. The unit is great, very quiet.

Each rack holds 3 bottles, one facing the opposite direction of the other 2; and the temperature remains very steady within a degree of the set number. 5 liter bottles present an issue – they fit but some are so tall they have to fit at an angle, so only 1 fits on the rack. You could store sodas in here, too. This is just right for our wet-bar area.

Perfect size in our new kitchen.

Very nice little wine cooler with a very cool blue light inside.

  • Love it, fit perfectly in place of trash compactor
  • Enjoy your white wine at the proper temperature.
  • Almost perfect.

Fits well in the place of old trash compactor; looks good. Bottles of various sizes don’t fit perfectly; sometimes hard to remove.

Haven’t discovered how well it works yet.

The unit is just as advertised. It does make some racket form time to time, but normally i don’t notice except when the icemaker and wine cooler run at the same time.

Elegant lookfits perfectly in my kitchen.

Professional grade wine cooler, with front exhaust / ventilation. I compared this model & specifications to those on the shelf at lowes and home depot prior to purchase. This cooler is compact, but well designed. It is easy to setup and install, as well as quiet and thus far reliable. The blue interior lighting is a plus, and looks spectacular. Our wine is always chilled to the perfect temperature. Definitely worth spending the extra money for the difference in quality.

I is compact, fits into the space very well and keeps the wine perfectly.

Little noisy but not enough to bother us.

This replaced a very old, inoperable trash compactor, fit in area perfectly.

Fit right in our old trash compactor. Love the sophisticated blue color inside that you can turn on and off. Can store good amount of bottle.

Has lots of room for both sizes of bottles.

This cooler perfectly fills the space of a trash compactor – providing a little space all around for ventilation. Occasionally, the cooling system starts-up and there is a mild hum (little louder than my refrigerator).

Quiet, cools well, looks great, well made.

Looks great in our new house. You can’t beat the price for the product you are getting. Holds the temperature of the wine, within a couple degrees.

Love it, fit perfectly in place of trash compactor which wasn’t being used. Only complaint – hence 4 star rating – i had to remove two lower shelves to allow normal wine bottle to stand up.

Seems to be very excellent product.

Excellent under-counter wine cooler with plenty of storage space. Very quiet even outside the cabinet – bronze metal door looks sharp. Interior shelves are little too close to each other – when you pull out the drawer, the wine bottles catch the wood décor of the upper shelf. Other than that, we are pleased with our purchase.

Not sure how they define ‘quiet’, but it really isn’t. It isn’t annoying, but i hear it every single time the compressor turns on.

Cooler is running for over a moth already. Can’t confirm capacity as right now it’s being used for beer and water but it’s quiet and works great. I did not want large cooler and this one fits the bill.

EdgeStar CWR1211SZ 121 Bottle Single Zone Built-in Wine Cooler – Stainless Steel and, Very nice wine cooler-quiet

I have had this unit for a few months and it cools properly, is relatively quiet, and bottles fit into the unit well.

Holds less than 121 bottles due to various size bottles but this was expected. You did not mention the filter it apparently needs replaced every 3-6 months.

Works great but will not hold 121 standard wine bottles side by side. It has 12 shelves that hold 6 bottles each for a total of 72 bottles. Holds temperature steady and easy to set up.

Comments from buyers

“Nice unit, shelves could use some work, hard to move once loaded with bottles
, Very nice wine cooler-quiet
, Came on time. Loaded it. Holds less than

As most people noted, it doesn’t hold 121 bottles because most bottles aren’t standard size. I have 100 in there now with room for about 10 more. It looks sleek, and it runs nicely. As others also mentioned, it runs about 3 degrees warmer than the set temp, which doesn’t really bother me, i just set it at 52, and it keeps at 55. The one issue i had was with the delivery. I was home alone when the delivery came, and i’m 5’4′ and pretty petite. When the guy came to deliver, he was going to just leave outside my driveway. He says he’s not allowed to enter the house, which i understand, but i was like, really?.He managed to wheel the dolly so it just hung over the door jam so he could let it down inside my garage, which, fortunately, is where i wanted it anyway.

Easy to install and start up. There are many wine bottles that require slightly taller space and i had to remove 3 racks to create these taller rack areas.

Pull out shelves are a little cheap feeling for how nice this unit appears to look. Also holding all 128 bottles requires staggering the bottles forward and backward necks touching and makes the shelves very heavy. The shelves do not have good bearings or rails so they become rather stiff when loaded up with bottles. I would recommend putting in some drawer rails. Working on finding some that fit to make the shelf movement smoother.

Overall pretty happy but would like more space between shelves for burgundy bottles.

Returned whynter wine cooler which was noisy and ran all the time. This unit is much more quiet. Only draw back was attaching the handle which was noted in another review. Messing with the door gasket is something i don’t wanted to do. Only been running for two days, but everything seems fine. Will update if any negative pops up. Most wine is boudeau and fit nicel on the pull out shelves, i placed the burgundies on top shelve. Remove one shelve on the botton to accommodate champagne.

As all the reviews say, the bottle capacity isn’t 121. If the shelf spacing were properly distanced, it would be a lot better. Instead, you have to remove shelves which reduces capacity dramatically. So, champagnes, burgundies even heavier bottle new world wines don’t fit on the shelf as is. So i lost 1 shelf so far to fit the larger champagne bottles. The big reds are stacked on the bottom. Door handle installation involves removing the gasket. Sounds easy but i don’t want to rip the gasket.

This is great for holding all of our wine- i love that we can properly store wine and see what we have.

The temperatures varies around 2 degrees f and humidity between 55% (when compressor on) and 85%. It makes like a wind blowing sound because of the fans (even when the compressor if off) but it is not a problem in the kitchen. I would definitively recommend it after 2 weeks of use.

This fridge looks nice and keeps wine nicely chilled. The three complaints i have with it are twists on some of other peoples’ complaints. 5 stars if that was an option. In terms of fitting bottles, i was prepared for the larger bottles not to fit. However, with the smaller bottles, you have to put them ‘necks in’ in order to maximize how much wine it holds (note this is not how it’s shown in the picture). This makes the use of wine tags useless. Also, the shelves only slide half-way out, so figuring out what you have in back is nearly impossible.

EdgeStar CWR1101DZ 110 Bottle Built-In Dual Zone Wine Cooler – Stainless Steel and – Pros: Product is well constructed and attractive. It

Love the look and size, but as mentioned, many shelves are just a tad too small, meaning those shelves have to be forced/dragged open with wear and tear on labels. It also lowers number of bottles we can store. It is difficult to reach bottles in the back because shelves are not too sturdy. Both temps are holding steady, though, so we will put up with the less-than-perfect shelves.

I have to disclose upfront that i sent my unit back due to some controls issues however; having said that, it was a beautiful unit and would have been perfect if not for the controls issues.

Purchased this unit about a year ago, back to report. After much review reading, i decided this would be the safest choice, and i was right with a couple exceptions:pros: the unit is indeed quiet (we sleep in the same room as it) and reliable, and arrived in perfect shape. Cons: keeping one zone on the coldest setting for my whites resulted in a gigantic condensation ice block in the back of the machine. That said, it was easy to take the interior rear panel off with a screwdriver, and melt the block down using a blowdryer. Bumping the temp up to 45 degrees has fixed the ice problem completely. Also, the rumors are true, the shelves are very close together making it difficult to store champagne and bordeaux bottles.

I bought this about 1 1/2 years ago because it was one of the lower cost wine refrigerators for the amount of bottles it held. It had several positive reviews. My experience was good, until now. The temperature controls stopped working about a month ago. I had the refrigerator set to 54 and 58 degrees for the two zones. The temperature is now sitting at 68 for both zones. Just found out it’s the compressor. Still cheaper than the alternative of buying a new one, but knowing this, i would have rather spent $1,500 on a better product up front.

It keeps our wine at the proper temperature, since we are amateur wine makers and bottle our own wine, the issue of various bottle shapes isn’t a concern for us.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Almost perfect
  • Pros: Product is well constructed and attractive. It
  • Very nice but slightly flawed product

Nice and exactly what we wanted.

It keeps temperature well and locks. It is simple and well constructed. On the con side: it is not super quiet so it is more suited to a kitchen than a living room. The racks are also too tight for some specialty bottles or champagne bottles. They can also be tight enough to rub the labels on more ordinary bottles, so you need to be careful about delicate labels.

Posted measurements were off by an inch which had implications for a pre-built kitchen this was sliding into.

Pros: product is well constructed and attractive. It is also very quiet and maintains temps within 1 degree of setting. Cons: space between shelves is not sufficient for high-end cab bottles (the type of bottle that tapers from top to bottom). Needs about 1/8′ of extra space. Bottles (labels) get scraped and you have to force the shelve in or out as the bottles rub the shelf above.

It only fits wider bottles on top shelves. Doesn’t have wide range of temperatures in either zone.

Arrived when promised, very well packaged, maintains temperature very close to setting, attractive design. Larger diameter bottles drag on the shelf just above them, but workable.

Nice looking & works well so far.

Dual-zone operation, modern design, built-in or free-standing use, two individual temperature ranges for red and white wine, digital controls, and holds 110 bottles (or so) depending on the diameter of the bottles. It’s quiet, looks great and holds more than enough to party with.

EdgeStar 30 Bottle Built-In Wine Cooler – Stainless Steel/ : Looks just like the wine coolers that cost twice as much

Fits perfectly where my trash compactor was.

Nice blue light, gets nice and cold ( i like why whites extra chilled). Shelves a bit flimsy when pulling out, but it does the trick overall and for the price.

I had an identical unit for about 3 years and the compressor died. It was going to cost as much to fix it as replace it. I couldn’t find a unit as good at this price. The unit is well made, is quiet and holds the temperature well. It works well as a built in-unit and i like the look. I’m hoping whatever the issue was with the compressor has been fixed and this one lasts much longer.

I gave it five stars because it does what it’s supposed to, and looks nice. One complaint is that at times it is quite loud.

EdgeStar 30 Bottle Built-In Wine Cooler – Stainless Steel/Black : Works but the gap from the countertop to the cooler is very noticeable.

It is perfect under our counter.

This wine fridge was easy to install and is working perfectly. I have no complaints and am very happy with the purchase.

The perfect size for the space we have and easy to install.

My only dislike is the shelves are too close together. Standard cab bottles barely fit. Stop using bordeaux bottles for measurements. I would rather hold 25 bottles with some room to maneuver than hold 32 bottles of bordeaux that needs to age for 20 years.

Expensive for the size, but this seems common to this smaller sizeruns well and no problems over the past couple of yearsnot as quiet as we’d like, but does not loud enough to interfere with conversation, etc.

This wine cooler works great. Could only get 25 bottles to fit, because i have most reds. It looks great and for the price, i would recommend it.

Although it is early to really rate this product so far so good. Product was double boxed well. Came with no scratches or dents. Size is consistent throughout build. 7/8 inches wide and that is what it was exactly. It went into a 15 inch slot exactly. Product cools quickly and temp is within 2 degrees as per manual. I simply set it at 53 to obtain a temp of 55. As with other coolers, these are designed for a 450 ml bottle or smaller. The litter size will take up more space and you will not get 30 bottles into the unit. If you use 350 ml bottles no problem. Unit noise level is minimal as expected. It replaced a wine enthusiast unit that was defunct in 8 months. This is a built in wine cooler with the venting in the front. Any unit with no venting up front is not a built in or under counter regardless of what they say. It would be free standing and will overheat and blow if under the counter. Small wine coolers cannot be dual zoned adequately. There is only one compressor and the difference in temp is regulated by a larger fan in the colder section.

The product was sold at a competitive price. It’s specifications met our requirements and it arrived on schedule and in good condition.

I wish it had a light in it.

Reasonably good wine cooler for the price. Leveling features easy to use. Would have liked to seen an auto on/auto off feature for the light to avoid having to manually activate.

Only time will tell how it lasts. I am waiting a few weeks to make sure before putting my good wine in it.

Though i have only had it for a couple of weeks, i judge it to be a fine wine cooler. Appearance and functioning are fine. My only critical observation, not a complaint, is that the racks are narrow. A bit of wiggling is occasionally needed to slide the rack back when a bottle has a slightly-larger-than- average diameter.

After reading several reviews i purchased this wine cooler. It is quiet and keeps wine at correct temp. I would recommend not plugging in for 24hours after delivery, just in case delivery service has turned on its side during transport.

As advertised, quiet, runs as it should. Easy to unpack and install, well packaged.

We tried this in a trial basis but the kitchen extension into which it is to be placed is to be built this week, so the real proof of the pudding.

A little tight to fit in the bottles, but well worth the money.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • One I purchased about 2 weeks ago and it the most fantastic beverage fridge
  • this is perfect and delivered on time
  • But it works just great! Holds lots of product and doesn’t take up

But it only lights for door open.

This is a terrific device for the buck, matches excellent in our downstairs billard area.

Everything i was procuring for. Prompt shipping and delivery with no suprises.

Bought this fridge for my reward shop. When it first arrived i was shocked by how quick it was. Retains loads of product or service and would not just take up also much house.

Just one very little issue, i nevertheless it was completely stainless steel. It was only stainless steel on entrance, sides were white. I had to invest in stainless steel peel and adhere paper to give it the complete stainless steel seem. Other than that, this is best and shipped on time.

We are applying this as a consume fridge in our house for excess cold drinks during a sizzling summer months.

Received this to make room in foods fridge. Now i preserve all my beverages chilly and stored out the way.

Been really joyful with this solution.

It is very silent working review with summit device this one significantly much better.

One i acquired about 2 weeks in the past and it the most excellent beverage fridge. All you require to know is,1) if this is within your spending budget its good. two) white sides and stainless front3) cools to 36 degrees. Other opinions about controls are ridiculous. Its evident how to use no need to have to go through manual. A great deal quieter than other ones i’ve procured. 5) will hold 3 situations of h2o nonetheless inside of the packaging, at minimum double that if you clear away packaging. 6) be incredibly mindful opening the door take care of bag as there are two established screws that are very small and fell out.

EdgeStar CBR1501SLD 5 : Great little fridge!

Wanted an undercounter refrigerator the size of a standard dishwasher. I was worried if 38 degrees was cold enough, but no complaints. At one point, i opened the door and i captured this pic. The setting is at 38 degrees, but read 35 degrees.

Works well, seems reliable — but have only had it for 2 months. The light inside is a sci-fi blue. Which may not appeal to some; i don’t mind it. The drawers have holes in them for even distribution of cold throughout. We use it for more than just beverages – in addition to milk for our espresso machine, we use it for fruit, and occasional things that won’t fit in our main fridge. The venting on the bottom of the unit makes it suitable for positioning under a cabinet. The only drawback to this is that the unit tends to be a bit noisier than i expected. Not huge noise, but more noticeable than i anticipated.

Nice unite—hoping it lasts for a long-long time.

Unbelievable capacity even with one shelf removed to accommodate long neck bottles. Does a good job keeping beer cold in the outdoor setting here in arizona.

  • Pretty good even with minor quibbles
  • Pricey but well worth it!
  • Nice and quiet. Love it!

I first bought a u-line model that costs twice as much, couldn’t stand the noisy fan, returned it and ordered the edgestar. It looks nice and works well to keep the temp cold. Our previous one was made by avanti, very nice looking, perfect fit for built-in, but broke down after less than 3 years. Only improvement i would recommend for edgestar is to make the door less bulky so it would fit flush in a 24″ built-in under the counter space and doesn’t have to stick out in order to avoid touching the flanking cabinet door.

This is good for beer cooler with moveable shelves, but top curve of refrigerator limits the cans that can be put on top shelf.

It’s a great deal on a quality product.

Aside from the back corner getting crushes as result of a drop. Likely during shipping, this is a great product. Fortunately, the leveling feet could be able adjusted to compensate for the damage and it is hidden in a built in space. Otherwise, it would have a 5th star if the door could close easier. Maybe have a stronger magnet.

Background: there are plenty of comments on the products specs, and suffice to say it is an attractive stainless-steel front under-the-counter refrigerator, with a blue led light inside and a constant digital temp reading. So, the only other factor i cared about related to temperature. Temperature test: for the last two weeks i ran tests, recording temperature variances. I first put in a case of soda cans to simulate how i’d use it and to help maintain the temperature. What i found was the temperature deviated between 33 and 42 degrees. I checked it with a digital thermometer to verify the readings. The unit i set at its lowest setting, 38 degrees, and recorded a variance of 4-5 degrees in either direction. This all makes sense and i’m not surprised – that is how refrigerators work. Compressor run time: the best way to mitigate temperature variance is to run the compressor more. Yet that is what bothered a number of reviewers writing about this refrigerator.

Bought this for my husbands game room to replace smaller refrigerator with ice tray freezer. He loves the fact there is no defrosting and has more room for beverages and has a nice door handle.

Placed it in our new basement.

6 month review and it has worked like a charm in our 4 seasons room keeps beverages cold and nice sleek look.

Better than one bit replaced and it cost three times more than this one.

Such a large and heavy item, it was delivered by appointment by fedex. Was well packaged on a pallet. Quite and keeps the beverages cold.

Works great, holds temp well.

Proper size for the proper price tag and it retains beer colder than our viking frig.

No frills, but it retains my beer chilly.

I hesitated for six months prior to finding this fridge due to the fact of the price tag. It was the only one particular with very good opinions so i considered it was really worth receiving it. It came properly packaged and the delivery guy brought it all the way into my garage. The fridge is very major and reliable looking. The temperature is keeping continual and it can maintain a ton. It seems fantastic and i like the blue mild.

Pretty happy with this order. It is even much better than described. Straightforward to alter doorway opening from 1 aspect to the other.

Nice shelving that can be altered. Plenty of home and fairly priced as opposed to other goods.

We acquired this edge star for underneath a counter,in our laundry area. I had to reverse the doorway which was alittle tough but with some persistence it came together properly. The only draw back again to this device is you need to effectively near the doorway soon after opening it, the door will not swing shut on its very own. The device does have a alarm that will audio if the doorway is not shut effectively. I really endorse the device it is significant responsibility and it has a qualified constructed visual appeal.
