A note on thermoelectric cooling

This EdgeStar wine cooler uses a thermoelectric Peltier unit to provide environmentally-friendly, CFC-free cooling. In addition to energy efficiency, and the previously-mentioned environmental-friendliness, thermoelectric cooling is very quiet,making it ideal for homes and offices.

While thermoelectric cooling offers many benefits, the cooling performance of thermoelectric units tends to strongly correlate to the environment in which the units are located. In other wordsthe cooler the environment, the better the cooling perfromance of the wine cooler.

In light of the above,it is helpful to note that this wine cooler was designed for use in a “room temperature” environment (i.e.,with ambient temperatures in the mid-70’s).

Please note that this appliance is a wine coolernot a refrigerator.If you feel that the wine cooler is not cold enough,we suggest making sure the unit is on its lowest setting, giving the unit at least 24 hours to cool,and making sure the unit is not exposed to direct sunlight or excessive heat.

Temperature range

The upper zone has a temperature range of 45°-54° (F) under ideal conditions (see Notes on thermoelectric cooling for more info).This zone is ideal for white wines.The lower zone has a temperature range of 54°-64° (F) under ideal conditions and is ideal for red wine. As detailed above, you can set your desired temperatures using the control panel.

For your reference,many wine experts suggest that 55°F is an ideal temperature for storage of most varieties of wine.

However, the ideal drinking temperatures for most wines differ. We suggest you do a little research to determine at what temperatures you most enjoy your favorite wines, but we suggest temperatures in the low 50’s for white wines and “room”temperatures (or slightly cooler) for red wines.
