We bought this beverage fridge a few months ago and it works really well. Our only issue is that it seems to run 12 hours a day. It was built into a cabinet and there's a good 4" clearance to the wall, but that's what it's designed for. It's not any noisier than any other refrigerator, but 12 hours a day of humming/buzzing gets on the nerves.
On a positive note, I am happy with the way this wine fridge cools the wine and that it does so very quietly. However, I have two pretty major complaints that really make me wish I had bought a different wine fridge altogether. 1) This fridge does not fit all 750ml wine bottles (the ones that are made for burgandy or Rhône style wines are just slightly too round around the middle). I did not expect it to accommodate larger specialty bottles, but I do expect a wine fridge to have drawers that are deep enough to accommodate a standard size Frank Family Chardonnay or Turley Pinot Noir. It looks like our only option will be to completely remove one drawer to accommodate the extra 1/4” height we need for these bottles. What a waste of space this will be! The other issue I have with this wine fridge is the handle. The handle is the full width of the refrigerator that is shaped like a big scoop. It works fine to open the fridge. Unfortunately, it works even better at collecting crumbs and dust. I’m not sure why they had to make the space for your fingers so deep in the middle and so small at the edges. Be prepared to keep Q-tips nearby to clean out the crumbs and dust in the handle that are highly visible when standing next to and looking down on this fridge. Someone was not thinking about practical design with this wine fridge! I definitely would buy a different one if we hadn’t had our custom cabinetry designed for this sized wine fridge.
I wish I had read the reviews prior to purchasing. I bought this to match my GE Profile series set. Why sell a beverage fridge that does not cool beverages like a normal refridgerator does? Normal refridgerator temperatures should be 40 degrees or below. This "refridgerator" only cools to 48 degrees. For the price of this product, maybe put a better compressor in it?
We purchased this cooler because our previous GE cooler broke (but stayed with us for many years before doing so). It was a floor model so the cost was less, and at that price, I’m happy with it. The temperature isn’t as predictable as the last one (no readout for starter) and we’ve had some water bottles freeze, but it does the job.
I was sold this as an additional refrigerator for overstock of all goods, not just beverages. It's a nice unit, good size but doesn't get cold enough for all the overstock I wanted. So, I'm disappointed that I was convinced to use it for this purpose since I can't really do that.
The fridge is quite noisy when it is chilling. The option of an always on light is pretty neat
I have had a Profile wine refrigerator for over 10 years and never had any issues.
If something happened to the one I have I would definitely purchase one again
