SOFT INTERIOR LIGHTING, REMOVABLE RACKS & EASY-TO-USE TOUCH CONTROLS - Turn on the energy-efficient LED light to gently illuminate your collection. Say goodbye to harsh fluorescent bulbs that fade labels and affect flavor. Rearrange the shelves to accommodate varying bottle sizes. From pinot noir to champagne, you can be sure your collection ages comfortably. Easily adjust the temperature and turn on the light with the bright LCD display by tapping the touch sensitive buttons.

The Ivation 28-bottle cooler is compact enough that it'll fit just about anywhere, and its small size makes it easy to transport. The compressor technology keeps the temperature fairly steady, and it's well insulated, so it's quiet enough to store in your bedroom or living room. The cooler is designed to fit wine bottles up to 7.5 inches tall, but we found it was a tight fit, and taller bottles would sometimes stick slightly. The built-in fan is quiet, and the fridge automatically turns on when the ambient temperature drops below 50F, so you don't need a separate thermostat. The fridge also automatically turns itself off when the ambient temperature climbs above 70F, so it's fairly energy efficient. The backlit touch controls are easy to use, and it connects to the Wi-Fi network using your home's router, so you need no additional hardware or hub. The fridge also has two USB ports, so you can charge your phone and other devices while your wine stays cool.

SCHMECKE 18 Bottle Compressor Wine Cooler Refrigerator w/Lock - Large Freestanding Wine Cellar - 41f-64f Digital Temperature Control Wine Fridge For Red, White, Champagne or Sparkling Wine - Black

REMOVABLE RACKS & EASY-TO-USE TOUCH CONTROLS - Rearrange the shelves to accommodate varying bottle sizes. From pinot noir to champagne, you can be sure your collection ages comfortably. Easily adjust the temperature and turn on the light by tapping the digital display, then easily lock in settings with the lock button. The bright LCD display lets you view the temperature, even in the dark.

The Schmecke 18 Bottle Compressor Wine Cooler with Digital Temperature Control is a stylish wine refrigerator that performs well. With up to 18 bottles of wine, this cooler is perfect for large wine collections. It has a roomy interior, and low heat dispersion inside the unit helps to keep the temperature steady. It also has a quiet compressor that stays quiet even when it's running. But while the cooling performance is good, this cooler has some limitations. There are only four temperature settings, so you can't precisely control the temperature of the wine. And like most of the coolers we tested, this cooler doesn't utilize a thermoelectric cooling unit. A thermoelectric cooler uses Peltier technology, which requires lower power than compressor coolers, so it's more efficient. This cooler is also somewhat larger than some of the smaller refrigerators we tested, so it's too big to fit under most kitchen cabinets. And while the glass door is double pane and has excellent insulation properties, it's made of glass, which can break if bumped. Overall, this cooler gives wine lovers a spacious interior, quiet operation, and cooling performance that is quite acceptable, but it's no Peltier cooler.

Ivation's 18 Bottle Wine Cooler works at higher capacity levels than most of our top picks, and it doesn't cost more than our budget pick. It can hold up to 18 bottles at a range of temperatures, but it's designed for reds and whites. Its external LED light is a nice touch, and the interior lighting is bright enough for most collections. The main drawback, though, is that although the compressor is more efficient than our old top pick, it uses more electricity. A decent-sized wine collection would require two of these coolers, and the price tag on one of them will add up over time.

The fridge's interior dimensions are about 12.25 inches tall x 14.75 inches wide x 20 inches deep, so it's large enough for 12 bottles of wine, but small enough to fit on a counter or a table.

This wine cooler is ideal for storing an assortment of bottles, including reds, whites, sparkling wines, and Champagne. The cooler kept our bottles at a consistent 41F-64F, which is below the temperature at which most wines will begin to age. It was also easy to set the temperature, and the interior LED lighting was pleasant, not harsh. The glass door is made of double-paned, tempered glass, which keeps the interior cool and bright. The compressor technology also means the cooler can maintain the temperature even when the power goes out. The only drawback is that the wine cooler's temperature display is hard to read. The numeric display is tiny, and the numbers are difficult to discern. This cooler is also fairly noisy, either when the compressor runs or when the fan kicks on.
