Rating of the best wine cabinets

Vestfrost VFWC 150 Z2

Rat­ing: 4.9


Vestfrost VFWC 150 Z2

By far the best of the pre­sent­ed wine cab­i­nets is the Vest­frost VFWC 150 Z2 mod­el. With the excep­tion of the design, absolute­ly every­thing is per­fect in it: the capac­i­ty, the effi­cien­cy, the lev­el of noise emit­ted, and even the man­u­fac­tura­bil­i­ty of the design. The total vol­ume of the two cham­bers is 147 liters, and all this is occu­pied by 5 large wood­en shelves with space for 46 bot­tles of excel­lent wine. The tem­per­a­ture is con­trolled by a com­pres­sor in the range from 5 to 18 degrees Cel­sius.

The elec­tron­ics with push-but­ton switch­es and a dis­play are respon­si­ble for con­trol­ling the cool­ing modes. To fit the wardrobe into the frame of the room, you can move the open­ing door to the oth­er side. In addi­tion, there is a lock­ing sys­tem to keep the con­tents safe from chil­dren (or vice ver­sa). The ven­ti­la­tion is equipped with a car­bon fil­ter that absorbs dust par­ti­cles and puri­fies the air from pol­lu­tion. All this has a pos­i­tive effect on the safe­ty of wines. Oh yes, almost for­got! Despite the large dimen­sions, the noise lev­el of this lock­er is 39 dB. Be sure to look at it if you have a large col­lec­tion of good wines.

Advantages

  • very roomy (46 bot­tles);
  • the pres­ence of a car­bon fil­ter in the ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem;
  • the abil­i­ty to out­weigh the door;
  • pro­tec­tion from chil­dren;
  • high-qual­i­ty and reli­able assem­bly.

Caso WineDuett Touch 21

Rat­ing: 4.8


CASO WINEDUETT TOUCH 21

Very inter­est­ing and sophis­ti­cat­ed wine stor­age box from Caso. It is expen­sive, but at the same time it is an extreme­ly inter­est­ing mod­el to study. Its design uses 7 met­al shelves with 3 recess­es for bot­tles on each. 2 tem­per­a­ture zones allow you to place sev­er­al vari­eties of wine and select unique stor­age modes for them. Respon­si­ble for con­trol elec­tron­ics with a touch screen.

The tem­per­a­ture in Caso Wine­Duett Touch 21 is adjustable from 7 to 18 degrees Cel­sius. The ener­gy con­sump­tion lev­el cor­re­sponds to class B and is 168 kWh per year. In gen­er­al, this is opti­mal, giv­en the capac­i­ty and com­plex­i­ty in orga­niz­ing two-cham­ber stor­age. But the noise lev­el let us down: at the moments when the ven­ti­la­tion is turned on, it reach­es 45 dB. How­ev­er, this small draw­back is com­pen­sat­ed by the above advan­tages, as well as the pres­ence of an anti-vibra­tion sys­tem.

Advantages

  • main­tain­ing the tem­per­a­ture with a min­i­mum error in the vol­ume of the cham­ber;
  • attrac­tive design;
  • the pres­ence of an anti-vibra­tion sys­tem.

Flaws

  • quite noisy;
  • high price.

Cellar Private CP021-2T

Rat­ing: 4.7


Cellar Private CP021-2T

Cel­lar’s two-zone wine cab­i­net holds 21 clas­sic-sized bot­tles. It is made of met­al with a tint­ed glass door and weighs as much as 18.5 kilo­grams. The rea­son for this is sim­ple: to cre­ate sep­a­rate stor­age areas, you need to com­pli­cate the design a lit­tle.

The min­i­mum and max­i­mum tem­per­a­tures in the cham­bers of the cab­i­net are 7 and 18 degrees Cel­sius, respec­tive­ly. The total vol­ume is 58 liters, and in terms of use­ful use, Pri­vate CP021-2T los­es a lit­tle to Vest­frost VFWC 28 Z1. But there is a touch­screen dis­play with elec­tron­ic tem­per­a­ture con­trol, and the price, despite the com­plex­i­ty of the design and the mate­ri­als used, has increased by no more than 25%. The noise lev­el does not exceed 32 dB and it is just a great pur­chase for your home.

Advantages

  • accept­able price;
  • 2 sep­a­rate stor­age rooms;
  • con­ve­nient touch con­trol;
  • low noise lev­el.

Flaws

  • not quite ratio­nal use of inter­nal vol­ume.

Kitfort KT-2404

Rat­ing: 4.7


Kitfort KT-2404

Anoth­er rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Kit­fort com­pa­ny, but with two equiv­a­lent tem­per­a­ture con­trol zones. The cab­i­net holds 12 bot­tles, har­mo­nious­ly dis­trib­uted over 33 liters of total cham­ber vol­ume. The tem­per­a­ture in them is reg­u­lat­ed in the range from 8 to 18 degrees Cel­sius using push-but­ton switch­es, and all infor­ma­tion is dis­played.

Despite the good lay­out and the use of wood as shelves, in all oth­er respects the lock­er is not very opti­mal. For exam­ple, it con­sumes 183 kWh of ener­gy per year and emits 41 dB of noise. This is quite a lot, and there­fore it is advis­able to place it out­side the bed­room or hall. KT-2404 is the very case when the func­tion­al­i­ty and char­ac­ter­is­tics are ful­ly reflect­ed in the price. How­ev­er, this does not make it bad, but sim­ply adds a few spe­cif­ic oper­at­ing con­di­tions.

Advantages

  • capac­i­ty;
  • low price;
  • good build qual­i­ty.

Flaws

  • high noise lev­el;
  • suf­fi­cient­ly large pow­er con­sump­tion, despite the small vol­ume.

Vestfrost VFWC 28 Z1

Rat­ing: 4.6


VESTFROST VFWC 28 Z1

A more seri­ous wine cab­i­net with an inter­nal vol­ume of 62 liters and 28 places for plac­ing wines. It is inex­pen­sive, but at the same time it com­bines all the basic func­tions of a nor­mal cli­mate stor­age. The tem­per­a­ture in it is reg­u­lat­ed in a small range from 12 to 18 degrees Cel­sius, which cor­re­sponds to the nor­mal cli­mat­ic zone. The con­trol is not touch, but con­ve­nient, on mechan­i­cal push-but­ton switch­es. The tem­per­a­ture zone is the same, and here it should be under­stood that inside there will still be a small dif­fer­ence in heat from top to bot­tom.

The body of the Vest­frost VFWC 28 Z1 is made of met­al, but the shelves inside are wood­en. On the one hand, this is an inter­est­ing solu­tion that allowed to reduce the cost of the cab­i­net. On the oth­er hand, the dura­bil­i­ty of such shelves is ques­tioned. Still, there is mois­ture inside and with min­i­mal dam­age to the top lay­er, the mate­r­i­al can become damp and loosen. The undoubt­ed advan­tage is the noise lev­el of 25 dB. And in gen­er­al: the instal­la­tion turned out to be what you need!

Advantages

  • low noise lev­el;
  • large cham­ber capac­i­ty;
  • accept­able price;
  • decent build qual­i­ty.

Flaws

  • preser­va­tion of wood floors.

Kitfort KT-2402

Rat­ing: 4.5


Kitfort KT-2402

The wine cool­er from Kit­fort relies on beau­ti­ful, mod­ern design and con­ve­nient cli­mate con­trol. Its vol­ume is 35 liters, designed to accom­mo­date 8 bot­tles of wine in a stan­dard bot­tle. Cool­ing here is ther­mo­elec­tric with tem­per­a­ture con­trol from 8 to 18 degrees Cel­sius.

For a year of oper­a­tion, Kit­fort KT-2402 con­sumes 121 kWh of elec­tric­i­ty per year. Inside it, con­di­tions are cre­at­ed that cor­re­spond to the indi­ca­tors of a nor­mal and sub­nor­mal cli­mate. The noise lev­el is no more than 25 dB, and this is an excel­lent result by the stan­dards of wine cab­i­nets.

Advantages

  • 11.5 kilo­grams of weight;
  • beau­ti­ful mod­ern design with blue back­light­ing;
  • low noise lev­el;
  • attrac­tive price.

Flaws

  • no humid­i­ty con­trol.

Cavanova CV-004

Rat­ing: 4.5


CAVANOVA CV-004

The cab­i­net Cavano­va CV-004 works both for heat­ing and cool­ing, while con­sum­ing a lot of elec­tri­cal ener­gy. Its ther­moreg­u­la­tion is based on the Pelti­er effect — plates are used in the design, when cur­rent is applied to which one side is cooled and the oth­er is heat­ed. In this regard, the effi­cien­cy of the refrig­er­a­tor may be low­er than that of absorp­tion plants.

The lock­er is designed to accom­mo­date a total of 4 bot­tles of wine. It seems to be small, but even ves­sels of non-stan­dard shape fit there. The shelves are met­al and the tem­per­a­ture is con­trolled by push­but­ton switch­es. The total inter­nal vol­ume of the mod­el is only 12 liters.

Advantages

  • you can put bot­tles of dif­fer­ent shapes;
  • the pres­ence of an anti-vibra­tion sys­tem and humid­i­ty con­trol;
  • large and easy to use dis­play.

Flaws

  • high price;
  • small inter­nal vol­ume;
  • high pow­er con­sump­tion.

Tesler WCV-080

Rat­ing: 4.4


Tesler WCV-080

Tesler’s gray met­al wine cab­i­net holds up to 8 bot­tles of wine and has an inter­nal vol­ume of 21 liters. The tem­per­a­ture in it is main­tained by elec­tron­ics in the range from 7 to 18 degrees Cel­sius. Its indi­ca­tor is placed on the dis­play. The cir­cu­la­tion and dis­tri­b­u­tion of cold air should occur through­out the cham­ber, how­ev­er, some areas devi­ate from the set tem­per­a­ture by a cou­ple of degrees. The rea­son for this is the pres­ence of cor­ners and the dis­turbed move­ment of the air flow. How­ev­er, this is not crit­i­cal and does not affect the shelf life of wines.

The ener­gy con­sump­tion of the Tesler WCV-080 cor­re­sponds to class A+ and is approx­i­mate­ly 110 kWh per year. We rec­om­mend pur­chas­ing this wine cab­i­net for those who do not want to over­pay for the design.

Advantages

  • high-qual­i­ty bud­get wardrobe;
  • low noise lev­el of the cool­ing sys­tem;
  • the pres­ence of a tem­per­a­ture indi­ca­tor;
  • 3 shelves for plac­ing wines.

Flaws

  • not detect­ed.

Dunavox DAT‑6.16C

Rat­ing: 4.3


DUNAVOX DAT-6.16C

Sin­gle sec­tion met­al cab­i­net designed to store 6 bot­tles of wine. It is elec­tron­i­cal­ly con­trolled and con­sumes no more than 97 kWh of ener­gy per year. The tem­per­a­ture regime through­out the cham­ber is uni­form, how­ev­er, in the cor­ners, the val­ue can fluc­tu­ate with­in 2 degrees Cel­sius. The total vol­ume of the sec­tion is 16 liters.

Dunavox DAT‑6.16C belongs to the SN cli­mate class, which cor­re­sponds to a sub-nor­mal cli­mate. It has a dis­play that shows the cur­rent tem­per­a­ture, so you can keep track of it very eas­i­ly. The noise lev­el dur­ing oper­a­tion does not exceed 38 dB — this is not the best indi­ca­tor in the seg­ment, but it will def­i­nite­ly not annoy you.

Advantages

  • con­ve­nient and com­pact cab­i­net;
  • tem­per­a­ture indi­ca­tor;
  • low pow­er con­sump­tion.

Flaws

  • cool­ing in a small tem­per­a­ture range.
