          then you need to immediately turn around and go right back inside that store.

    •  

      Trying to find specs but looks to reflect ambient temperature difference, down to about 5deg? So if your room is not super hot it should be ok

      • +12 votes

        Most likely uses Peltier Device for Thermoelectric coolingto lower temp below ambient. So works better in cooler conditions. (Kmart wine cooler does.) Often used in cheap car coolers.

        Certainly won't make drinks very cold & won't work as a normal fridge.

        • +4 votes

          On top of that, Peltier devices in coolers like this are energy pigs. Very inefficient. Probably not a huge deal. I used to have one of these that used 80W of power constantly, which for a small cooler is pretty bad…
          Still, for that price…..

        •  

          it really depends on how well sized the peltier unit is sized for the area, how well insulated the unit is, how cold you like your drinks (5deg is too cold for me) etc.

          If I crank mine right up, I can probably get to Tamb - 25degC.. so it's fine on most typical summer days of around 33 to have drinks at 8deg.. and for the really hot 40+ days, I have drinks in the normal fridge anyway. The other thing is, it might take an entire day or two to get to such a large delta, and won't tolerate frequent opening & closing.

            @Jaspa7: The idea of wine storage is to hold wine at an optimal temp (& humidity). Doubt anyone will be storing their Grange in this device😉

            As this unit will vary the temp (based on ambient Temp, door opening, etc), its not good for wine storage.

            As you write, temp is usually put as no less than Tamb - 25degC. Which may mean a warmer drink than desired on hot days. So not good as a beer fridge!

              @the INFIDEL: I would guess humidity only matters with corks.

              As for temp variability, it shouldn't be an issue with a full wine fridge. The bottles collectively will help provide the temperature stability.

            •  

              @the INFIDEL:

              Doubt anyone will be storing their Grange in this device😉

              I just bought five of these for my Grange only cellar…..

          looks like a compressor is involved judging from the images, the bottom shelf area has a bulkhead, a compressor would normally be located behind this bulkhead.

          •  

            @tonsta: Unlikely but possible - weight is 18kg. So that would be a small & light compressor plus coils inside & out!
            The whole unit is small at 53 x 51.5 x 46cm, so that's a small bulkhead.

            Similar model at Kmart specifies a Peltier Device. That still requires a small bulkhead for the cooling device, heatsink, fan etc.
            Others have said it hasn't got a compressor.

            Buy one & tell us.

    Can this be used to put soft drink in? Will it be cold enough?

    • +3 votes

      Probably not. Wine fridges (most commonly available cheap ones) generally keep wines around 12-18 degrees. For soft drinks and beer you’re better off with a regular bar fridge

        Unless you buy a crappy Vintec which can't go below 22 a month out of warranty period haha. RIP my wine

        • +3 votes

          haha, so true, although given the price paid for them i'd be chasing them up for my consumer warranty.

          You read the reviews and the amount of these that have failed compressors is mind boggling. You'd think that for a premium brand they'd managed to design something that would last. I think now that electrolux owns them they'd be able to sort it out.

          At least they look the part. (have a $2500 170 bottle one) which had a failed compressor, now just stores the wine at room temp.

          •  

            @Drakesy: Think those issues have been fixed on the new version they just bought out. VWS035SBB-X

        •  

          LOL I just bought a Kogan wine fridge after looking at reviews of Vintec and Kogan . For the price I figured if I get my fridge past warranty on either fridge I'd rather be $270 out of pocket. I don't have high expectations of the Kogan fridge lasting BUT I only want it for my reds, and it's my first foray into said fridges so went cheap and nasty. If I like the fridge I'll spend some more on the next one.

        •  

          Agree, had a Vintec that came with the house and it never dropped below 15 degrees. Sold it for $200 on fb marketplace. Way too many compressor issues to EVER buy/recommend

    These are pretty much just wine chillers right? Typically wine fridges are both temperature and humidity controlled to preserve the cork better

    Thanks, Hopefully, pickup doesn't get sold before they pull it off shelves.

    Highly not recommended, it produces condensation on the outside and I need to place a towel underneath to prevent my floors from being soaked in water.

  •  

    I just put the wine bottle into the freezer for about 15-20 mins before drinking it. Is there a reason to keep wine in the wine fridge, besides drinking temp?

    • +3 votes

      this fridge is not to make your wine cold, is to keep it at a perfect temperature to keep colour, flavour, aroma, maintaining its quality. If you don't spend money with $50 wines, don't see the reason to have a wine fridge

          yeah, save the $50 bucks xD

      •  

        No, this fridge basically keeps it below a certain temp for drinking, not for storage. If you want to store, find something that operates within less than 0.5 degrees, has double glazing for better insulation and temp consistency, and also humidity control.

        Save your Grange in something more than $50

          Ah makes sense. Didn't think about it from the shape perspective. I guess you could also just buy wine cooling racks and put them inside an esky (assuming it fits)

      I don't think so. Definitely nothing around the southern suburbs. Miranda had a stack on Sunday at $99 when I was there but I suspect all gone now since the price drop.

    So I just went and bought one of these - It is an actual compressor unit - not a peltier based thing.

    Is this good for storing things other than wine?
    Like Coca-Cola or another beverage? Can someone who has this fridge comment on how cold it gets?

    I ordered C&C from a store with stock, within 5 minutes of the post going up… and I just got refunded.

    C&C at brick and mortar retail stores never works for me; it's such a broken system.

      By the time staff get around to processing your order, shoppers have barged-in!
      Better to be a barge-in hunter in store, or ring store to hold 1 for you. Works for me.

    Nice buy for an indoor green house.

    Picked mine up today from Melbourne CBD

    Runs well and I think gets cool enough for cans of soft drink etc…

    I have this fridge on hold at Eastland big w, they can only hold until tonight so whoever pms me first can have it. I can send the details for the pickup to them

    I finally picked mine up yesterday. Great fridge for $50. The glass is double glazed so no condensation. Also gets cold enough for drinks and I have it set to middle temp on the dial. One issue.
    When the motor kicks on and off it’s a loud click which is fine but actually seems very harsh to cut the power on and off so much so it actually affects the sound on my tv for a second as they share the same power socket on the wall
