Danby 36 Bottle Freestanding Wine Cooler, DWC93BLSDB Review

Danby 36 Bottle Wine Cooler, DWC93BLSDB 


Danby DWC93BLSDB is a 36 bottle or 3.3 cubic feet capacity wine cooler with a compressor, a stand-alone design, a solid and sturdy build, blue LED lighting for you to view your wine bottles clearly and auto defrost function. You can get it in either all black or in black with stainless steel door depending on your kitchen decor or your taste. It includes black wire shelves (that do not slide out) and recessed pocket style handle on the side and a tempered glass door with stainless steel frame and your sensitive bottles will be protected from the ultraviolet rays. The door has a  reversible swing so you can either open it from the left or right depending on where you put it. This is a single zone cooler with a temperature range between 43 and 57 degrees Fahrenheit to keep your wines cool enough for whenever you serve them and the temperature control is very sensitive and keeps it at the set temperatures consistently. Despite not being a dual zone fridge, you can set it is to the optimal temperature for your whites to be kept cool without over chilling your reds. Danby Wine Cooler looks modern and sophisticated in black and stainless steel, weighs 69 pounds and measures 20.1 x 17.5 x 32.68 inches. 3.3 cubic feet or up to 36 bottles is for 36 standard size bottles and this will be a bit less if you put the larger bottles.


One important thing to note is although this is a single zone cooler, when you use a digital thermometer inside, you will notice that the lower section is around 7 degrees cooler than the top part, which means you can simply put your reds at the top and whites in the lower section, without having to pay extra for a dual zone wine cooler. You are able to view your wines clearly through the glass door and there is the blue LED lighting to help you choose the bottle you want, which also makes the unit look better in the dark without heating like in the case of incandescent bulbs. It is slightly noisy but not noisier than an average wine cooler and is not bothersome either, as long as you don’t have the unit right near you- it will depend on where you put it. It holds quite a few bottles and in optimal condition and will protect your wine from extreme temperature changes but is not something you would keep your wines long-term for aging purposes. The wire racks feel solid but they do not slide out and you need to get the bottles out one by one.
