Koolatron WC06 Wine Cooler Review of 2022
1. Touch Screen Control
In this contemporary period, where touch controls are rapidly replacing age-old buttons, this Koolatron wine refrigerator has made sure that it doesn’t stay behind. This cooler comes with a digital display to adjust settings with just a tap of your fingers. These touch display controls will give out a modern yet exquisite look.
You can set the ideal temperature for any wine-red, white, or champagne using digital wine cellar temperature controls. We didn’t face any problems with these controls and were utterly satisfied with their swift response. You will also get an option to turn on or off the soft interior light to illuminate your bottles. So next time, when your guests come over, don’t forget to turn on the lights and show off your collection.
2. UV Protective Door
While winemaking involves more art than science, wine storing can apply more science than art. Ultraviolet rays from sunlight can trigger unwanted reactions in wine and give it an unpleasant taste. We have tried some coolers, but not many of them have taken note of such an important point.
But thanks to this mini wine cooler, one can relish their wine and beverages without any change in their original taste as it comes with a double-paned insulated glass door that is exclusively made to protect your wine from harmful rays. Thus, this wine cooler helps your drinks to stay not only cool but also healthier. This glass door also provides you with a vision to see through your wine collection from anywhere.
3. Cooling System
To enjoy your wine, your wine needs to be chilled at a specific cooling temperature. The taste of any beverage or drink solely depends on the cooling temperature under which they are stored. This Koolatron WC06 Thermoelectric Cooler provides you with all the necessary cooling temperatures for an efficient storing and chilling of your wine and beverages.
In this wine cooler, one can preserve their wine collection at a cool and constant temperature. 12-18°C (55-65°F) is ideal for red wine, and 8-13°C (46-55°F) is recommended for white wine, and this wine cooler integrates these ideal temperatures. Koolatron 6-bottle thermoelectric wine chiller, uses thermoelectric technology to ensure that your wine is kept at the optimal temperature to maintain its aroma and flavor for a perennial last.
4. Free Standing
Many wine coolers are heavy and do not give us any flexibility in moving them around to place them in accordance with our desire and need. They restrict one to use them for any certain occasions. As in the case of pool parties or any gatherings, we may need our wine cooler to place it near for our guests’ comfort. And it might be an embarrassing moment to approach your wine cooler frequently. But, this is not the case in this Koolatron 6 bottle wine refrigerator.
Koolatron wine fridge WC06 is a freestanding cooler meaning, you can quickly move it around. Some days, you may want your cooler to be in your bedroom and other days in your kitchen. In such a case, you can place it wherever you desire without any hustle. You just need a power supply, and you’re good to go.
Along with functionality, the Koolatron countertop wine cellar also serves style. It is ideal for any decor. Its shiny black body and superior mirrored glass design give it a stunning yet elegant look. It can easily look like a showpiece and go well with your kitchen countertop, your bar, or even your office.
Its removable and adjustable shelves made of ultra quality serve for a more extended period can increase your storage capacity. Also, this wine cooler is made to sustain any harsh climate as its double-paned glass door is made in such a way to face changes in the outside temperature effectively.
