Which Cooling System Does This EdgeStar Wine Cooler Use?
This EdgeStar CWR1101DZ is a compressor-cooled unit. The air cooled technology ensures the full interior will be cooled to your desired settings.
The powerful fans evenly dispense cool air eliminating warm spots and uneven cooling. Each bottle in the interior will be kept at exactly the same temperature as its neighbor.
Sometimes, oenophiles are concerned with the disturbance of sediments from the vibration caused by a compressor-cooled unit. However, with the incorporation of rubber bushings to absorb vibration and noise, the folks at EdgeStar worked to eliminate those issues.
How Many Zones Does The Edgestar 110 Bottle Wine Cooler Have?
The EdgeStar wine cooler utilizes two zones.
Each zone in this piece precisely cools up to 55 bottles of your favorite wines.
The upper white-zone can be set between 45 and 54 degrees Fahrenheit, while the lower red-zone can be cooled between 54 and 64 degrees Fahrenheit.
Is The EdgeStar Wine Cooler Freestanding/Built-in/or Both?
This wine refrigerator affords you the versatility of a free-standing unit or built-in. Depending on your preferences, this unit can be an elegant addition to any room.
The dimensions for the unit are 54 4/5″ H x 23 7/16″ W x 26 3/4″ D.
How Many Shelves Does The EdgeStar Wine Cooler Have?
The decorative nine (9) stainless steel trimmed wooden shelves slide out for ease of loading or unloading.
For those occasions when you require more space for larger bottles, the removable shelving conveniently complies with your wishes. More and more wine cooler designs include this valuable feature.
Please, remember to take ‘capacity’ into consideration in your purchase of any wine cooler. Manufacturers openly state their models hold “up to” X amount of bottles. What they are telling us is that their model will hold X number of ‘standard-sized’ bottles. If your wine is bottled in an nonstandard size (or shape) this will affect the capacity.
Tell Me About The Temperature Controls For the EdgeStar Wine Cooler
One of the most important features of a cooling system is the controls. Ease of accessibility tops my list as the first consideration. The controls on this unit are accessed inside the unit.
Next, controls should not require a PhD in order to be useful and readable. The LED display glows brightly making it very easy to see, read, and manipulate.
Lastly, the user-friendly touch control and digital display give you command of the regulation and monitoring of the temperature at your fingertips. Ease of temperature setting and control elevates certain wine coolers for me.
What Additional Features Does The EdgeStar Wine Cooler Offer?
While sunlight is fantastic for the growing of grapes, the sun’s UV rays cause a lot of problems for your wine collection. Exposure to UV light changes the composition of your wine. This could adversely affect the taste and the maturation of your favorite vintages.
The tinted glass door helps to protect your collection from harmful UV rays while still allowing your bottles to be showcased.
In this EdgeStar wine cooler, you’ll also find a built-in replaceable carbon filter which safeguards your wine. This filter acts as a protective barrier against harmful odors which could otherwise seep in through the corks.
Oftentimes, when a new appliance arrives, a ‘plasticy odor’ can fill the interior of the piece. This happens with wine coolers, too. It’s recommended that the appliance sit for at least 24 hours before operating it. I recommend leaving the door open for that first 24-48 hours and wiping it down with a weak solution of baking soda and water.
Yes! There is LED lighting inside this cooler. Many times an appliance’s light only comes on while the door is ajar.
This little fridge gives you the option of having the soft blue light on all the time or turning it off to suit your mood.
LED lighting keeps from adding heat to your cooler as conventional lighting would do. Wines should be ‘stored’ not ‘shown’. Having conventional lighting (incandescent) might work to display wines, but it does nothing to protect them.
This should be kept in mind when purchasing wines, as well. If the seller stores the wines under bright light, you might consider shopping somewhere else.
Lock on Door
This model includes a safety lock giving you the assurance that no one else can easily ‘help themselves’ to your collection.
More About the Door
Is the door reversible? This is always a good question to ask, as you may want to buy a second cooler in the future. If you are planning to place them side-by-side you can achieve the highly desired French door effect.
Yes, this door is reversible.
Also, the open-view door, constructed of two panes of glass, insulates well to keep temperature fluctuations to a minimum.
The only negative reviews I read concerning the EdgeStar wine cooler pertained to capacity. Some consumers stated it would not hold 110 bottles but went on to tell they had larger bottles to store.
Many of the reviews I’ve read were, indeed, positive, making the EdgeStar 110 Bottle Wine Cooler one of the best buys this year.
With a 90-day labor warranty and a 12-month parts warranty, the EdgeStar 110 Bottle Wine cooler is an excellent choice for the serious wine connoisseur.
