Firebird FB-WC0024 16 Bottles Thermoelectric Wine Cooler
Firebird FB-WC0024 is a 16-bottle capacity compact thermoelectric wine cooler/cellar. It has a sleek and modern, freestanding design and looks good with a dual paned glass door and a stylish stainless handle.
It is one of the number one hot selling new releases on Amazon.com. You can use it on your kitchen countertop or as a storage unit in your cellar for your precious wines. You have three color options of black wood, stainless steel and black. And the black wood cooler is ten dollars dearer at the time of this review.
The Firebird Mini Wine Cellar weighs 32.5 pounds,measures 17 x 18 x 19.75 inches and the interior dimensions are 14 x 13 x 15.5 inches. You can fit in 16 x regular size Bordeaux shaped bottles. This is a compact single zone wine cooler so you can store your white, red and sparkling bottles in. You can remove one of the shelves if you need to. And you will be able to fit in less than 16 bottles if you have larger or different shaped bottles.
The temperature can be adjusted easily between 50 and 66 degrees Fahrenheit on its LED touch display pane on the top frame, with the Celcius and Fahrenheit converter, temperature up and down and light touch buttons. And there is a single blue light bulb inside that lets you see your bottles clearly and adds to the beautiful look of the fridge so you can show off your wines.
You will be keeping your bottles at the optimal serving temperature, for you to enjoy them whenever you want. This is an efficient thermo-electric cooler (70 watts of power, 100-120V of voltage and 60Hz frequency) without a compressor and it runs much quieter than normal. The ventilation is located at the rear of the unit, so you can’t use it as a built-in cooler.
There are also no vibrations to shake or disturb the sediments in your wine. You can put your wine on its three wooden shelves that slide out for you to have easy access to your bottles whenever you wish. The dual paned glass door with the nice stainless steel handle adds to its already modern appearance. The framed glass door is not the reversible variety and it opens from the left to the right.
It includes legs that can be adjusted easily for different uneven surfaces, which also helps minimise vibrations. It can take a little while- like three hours or so for the temperature to reach what you set it to or stabilize. But keep the door shut for a while and you’ll see it running as it should and at the right temperature. And the temperature stays consistently stable at 50 degrees Fahrenheit if you don’t open the door much.
Firebird 16-bottle Wine Cooler is designed for home use and not in commercial settings, and offered with a year of parts warranty by Firebird. It is shipped from US stock and you should receive it pretty quickly. Please note that this fridge can not be sent to Alaska, Hawai, Puerto Rico and California or military addresses. It has the ETL Safety Certification and complies with the Canadian and US standards of security. It is a decent product overall.
