Question about Sunpentown Platinum Trim Cabinet Thermoelectric Wine and Beverage Chiller - 20 Bottle Wine Cooler

1 Answer

Does not chill drinks

Hi,

i bought this thermoelectric wine cooler, only to find out later that it only cools to 12 degrees minimum, which is not cold enough to drink.
Is there a way of improving the efficiency of the unit (turning it to minimum just makes it so noisy!)?
Are there any devices i could add (I am an electical engineer by trade) i can buy to make it better (heat exchanger or something off the shelf)

You wrote that the wine cooler "only cools to 12 degrees minimum" I don't understand the problem?
12 degrees is really cold, in fact its freezing.

Does a thermoelectric wine cooler have a ventilation system?


Absolutely, every wine cooling system has to have a ventilation system that will channel the heat generated in the operation, outside of the unit, including the thermoelectric wine cooler.

Is there such thing as a single bottle wine cooler?


Of course! There is a wide variety of single cooling systems for wine bottles. We don't drink a lot of wine, but when we have guests over I like to have the wine chilled properly. I prefer the stainless steel coolers, since the look more sleek and stylish.

Why should I buy a thermoelectric wine cooler as opposed to a compressor model?


There are many reasons to purchase a thermoelectric cooler including, but not limited to, being quiet and eco-friendly. Personally, I prefer thermoelectric coolers because they don't vibrate. The vibration of a compressor cooling system can cause the sediments in the wine to be disturbed and affect the flavor/taste of the wine.

What is a thermoelectric wine cooling system?


Thermoelectric cooling is best used in small wine coolers. Small fans from inside the cooling fridge evenly dispense cool temperatures throughout the interior of the unit.

How do you use a breville wc15xl wine chiller


HOW TO USE

First you place the Wine Cooler on a flat, dry surface, making sure that the timer is in the "off" position.

Remove the chill cells from the freezer and place around the inside of the cooler.

Thirdly, place the bottle inside the cooler and then pour cold tap water inside, until it just covers the top of the chill cells.

You can then plug the unit in, or if it has batteries you don't need to.

Finally, you set the control dial to the desired time. The following are recommendations for different types of beverages:

Sparkling Wine, Champagne and Dessert Wine.....9 minutes

Dry Wines, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling.....6 minutes

Chardonnay, Rose'....5 minutes

Light Red Wines, Pinot Noir....3.8 minutes

Full Bodied Reds, Shiraz, Grenache, Cab Sauvignon, Merlot....3 minutes


If you choose to chill a beverage without the timer, you just turn the control to the left and when you are done you turn it to the off position.

In addition to wine, the cooler can also chill beer and soft drinks. The only limitation is that the bottle diameter can be no more than 3.75 inches.

Should you wish to chill two or more consecutive bottles, the cells will remain cold enough for you to to do so.

While not in use, the cooler can also be used on the table with ice to keep your beverages cold (much like a regular ice bucket).

The power cord is removable, which makes for an easy clean-up.

The unit comes with a manufacturer's One-Year Limited Warranty.
