Mini Wine Cellar Reviews
Having wine at home ready to go when a party, a dinner date, or a simple quiet evening alone requires it, is something that most people would really benefit from. But sometimes, there isn’t enough space to store a lot of them at any given time. Especially when the only other places to keep them are a simple cupboard or a regular fridge. For people who want to enjoy wine at their best but can’t keep a lot of them, a mini wine cellar is the way to go.
Mini Wine Cellar – Maxi Capacity
Don’t let their size deceive you, however. Electric mini wine coolers are just as effective as their larger, higher capacity counterparts, except they are smaller and more compact, and are perfect for small kitchens and apartments. Most mini wine fridge units are thermoelectric, a technology that uses two metal plates fused together, that can be hot on one side and cold on the other when an electric current passes through them. This efficient method of cooling means that these units are not only built small because they require less parts, but are also energy efficient and perhaps most importantly, very quiet.
HOW SMALL IS A MINI WINE CELLAR?
On average, wine fridge mini units can store between 4 to 12 bottles of wine, depending on the model. Really small ones, like the RCA RFRW041 Wine Cooler, can perfectly store 4 bottles of wine despite only being 9.92 inches long, 14.68 inches wide, and 20.27 inches high. A 12 bottle counterpart, like the Nutrichef PKTEWC120 Thermoelectric Wine Cooler, stands vertical and is a narrow unit that can be placed on any small countertop.
WHERE DO I PUT MY NEW MINI WINE CELLAR?
Despite their effectiveness however, thermoelectric mini wine fridges must still be placed in an ideal location. This is because outside ambient temperatures can still affect its interior temperature. If you want to keep your wines constantly cool, you will want to place your mini wine cooler away from direct sunlight or the kitchen stove top.
