Impressive, even from miles away

Look, I have to be honest with you here: this is one cooler I haven’t had the pleasure of actually seeing in person. Still, I want to use this article to argue the point that you don’t actually have to come into physical contact with any product to know just how great it is. You can do all of your own research online and come to the same conclusions as you would if you were standing right beside it.

What? Are you kidding me? I’m not. If you are skeptical about this, allow me to walk you through just how I came to the conclusion that this is, in fact, the best 32 bottle dual zone wine cooler I have found in my entire process of researching for this website and my own personal use.

In this article, I want to do two things. First, and foremost, I want to tell you about this wine cooler and why I think it deserves to be named “Best 32 Bottle Dual Zone Wine Cooler.” I also want to show you just how I came to these conclusions so that you can apply this process to your own shopping.

The Specs Speak for Themselves

Though this is a beautiful wine cooler, I really don’t feel the need to comment too much on its appearance, because its elegance can clearly be seen in a simple photograph. What else is quite clear at a glance, though, is its general quality.

Once you know the ins and outs of any type of appliance (or any object in the world for that matter), it becomes easy to spot a good one and a not-so-good one. Once you build a picture of what quality is, you can easily measure something against that picture. When it comes to wine coolers, I have used my research and personal experience to create a checklist of great, good, and not-so-good qualities. I use this checklist as I read through the specifications of any cooler to help me determine just how good it is.

It only took a quick glance at the specifications (or specs) of this cooler for me to know just how great it is. Let’s delve deeper into some of those in the rest of this article, shall we?

Two Different Temperature Zones

One thing I have learned when it comes to dual zone wine coolers is that many of them aren’t actually dual zone, despite being called “dual zone” and having two separate thermostats. How is that possible? Well, you can easily create two thermostats and have those control the amount of cool air forced into two spaces, but if those two spaces aren’t physically divided by anything, the entire space will eventually become one temperature.

Think about a large open room. Imagine that you set up two thermostats in that space and that you set them to different temperatures and connect them to a forced air conditioning system. One thermostat will say it’s too warm in the area, while the other will read that it is the perfect temperature. Still, the thermostat set lower will turn on the system and force more cold air into the room. But since the room is open, this air will all comingle, eventually creating a room which is all one temperature. That temperature will always be warmer or colder than the perfect temperature set on one of the thermostats. The same can be said for dual zone coolers without dividers.

The problem described above happens a lot in the world of one door dual zone coolers. Thankfully, despite only have one door, this cooler has been divided with a thick, solid piece of steel which insulates one section from the other. These zones can be set at two different temperatures, depending upon the type of wine you plan to place inside. The top section, equally sized to the bottom section, has a temperature range of 54 degrees Fahrenheit to 66 degrees, making it the perfect environment for a range of reds. The bottom section is perfect for whites or reds, with a range of 46 to 66 degrees.

More Than a Door

Of course, any good wine cooler will have doors which not only serve to create a barrier between the inside and outside of the cooler, but which also serves to protect your wine from harmful UV rays. If you weren’t already aware, allow me to quickly let you know that UV rays from sunlight can actually harm your wine by speeding along its fermentation process just a little too much.

The partially tinted glass at the top of this cooler’s door and the fully tinted (almost blacked out) glass at the bottom will protect your wine completely from any UV rays. This means you can place your cooler wherever you want without having to worry about whether or not sunlight falls upon it.

Even More Impressive Features

This wine cooler has more great features that I wish I had the space to tell you fully and completely, but I simply do not. So, instead of writing a book here and losing your interest half way through, I have decided to just give you a synopsis of some of those features here. Of course, if you want to learn more about them you can always check out Amazon and the many consumer reviews written there.

Along with everything I’ve already discussed, this cooler features: silent cooling technology via a high-tech thermoelectric cooling system which will not cause vibrations or noise; a beautiful dark outer casing; a virtually seamless door for a fluid appearance; touch screen controls; individual controls for both the top and bottom sections; bright LCD displays of the temperatures for both sections; recessed handle; and stainless steel trim.
