In our last house, the previous owners had installed a wine refrigerator in the kitchen. I really loved the look of it there, but since we didn’t use it enough when we had one, we couldn’t justify the expense when we moved into our current home. We just cool our wines in the refrigerator when we know we’ll be having company over.
But when we have a gathering, like we did over Easter, there’s usually not a square inch of space left in our refrigerator. This is where the Wine Cooler from Wind & Weather really came in handy.
It also cools your bottle 10 times faster than the fridge would, 5 times faster than the freezer – so you can easily chill bottles at your leisure and by guest preference. All you do is fill the reservoir with 2 cups of water and about 12 ice cubes. Put the bottle in place and set the device to the desired chill time – the default is 10 minutes.
The cold water continually pours over the bottle to cool it. I didn’t expect it to do that, and I was worried it would ruin the label but it didn’t.
In the summer, we like to entertain outside so I know we’ll use it there. I only wish it would run on a battery instead of needing to be plugged in. I do like the presentation it offers – and the speed at which it cools the bottles.
BUY IT! The Wine Cooler is $99.95 and makes a great gift for a wine-loving mom. Wind & Weather has many other gift items from home décor, to weather instruments and gardening supplies.
