Colzer ‎YC-120D

Designed to Impress

Want to boost your wine and beverage home storage? The Colzer refrigeration unit is a smart and efficient solution to your problem. Pick your temperature – and always keep the bottles in a safe environment.

Let’s start with the fact that this fridge has two separate chambers: one for wine, one for beverages. It’s super convenient, as both offer different temperature ranges for ideal storage. This allows you to preserve the perfect taste and original flavor of your liquor.

The capacious fridge will take in 18 standard Bordeaux bottles and as many as 57 beer cans. Just enough to stop your excessive trips to a local store.

It’s worth noting that the design of this fridge is modern and high-end. You can easily fit it under the counter – or proudly put it on display at home or office. The elegant blue lighting is a real attention drawer and will become an instant hit with friends and family. Yes, it could be brighter, but that’s up to your personal preferences.

Another pro of Colzer is that it doesn’t blow your energy bill through the roof. Its energy consumption is quite modest; a really nice touch for a sustainable household.

Review of Colzer ‎YC-120D 24 inch Wine and Beverage Refrigerator

Keeps It Cool at All Times

Thanks to the quality compressor, this fridge stays cold – but doesn’t leave your bottles dead frozen. The circulating fan helps distribute the cold air evenly throughout the chambers. As a result, the inside temperature doesn’t fluctuate with time.

Don’t worry; you won’t lose the cold through the fridge’s glass door. It’s double-layered, seals nicely, and keeps the UV out. At the same time, it allows the light in, so you’ll be able to see what you’re going for.

This fridge will automatically defrost every 6 hours to protect your beverages. No need to reset the temperature by hand; the smart memory will do it for you.

Does this fridge produce a lot of noise? Actually, not at all. It’s almost completely silent, with the <42 dB noise level. Vibration is another thing you won’t have to worry about.

Finally, if you want to keep your children out, there’s a handy lock and a set of keys. The lock is very reliable, although placing it at the bottom of the fridge makes it slightly inconvenient.

All in all, the Colzer refrigerator brings your home beverage collection to the next level of “cool”.

Showcase Your Stock

If you’re looking for a stylish replacement to your old beverage fridge, the hOmeLabs model may be your choice. This smart device stores all your beverages at a perfect temperature – and looks right out of an expensive bar.

The capacious (3.2 cu.ft.) fridge will let you store as many as 120 standard soda/beer cans. Your bottled water storage – or even a few wines – will also do. This way, you can cut down on trips to your local supermarket and not cram your kitchen with supplies. Despite its large capacity, the fridge is quite small in size. It will look amazing under your counter – and blend perfectly with its design.

Now, to the fridge’s interior. The white LED light is a spectacular touch that will draw glances from your guests. It’s not aggressive but displays your beverages perfectly, as if you were at an upper tier bar or hotel. The lighting also lets you pick a can without a second guessing.

This fridge model features 3 adjustable wire chrome shelves. They can be removed if necessary. Keep in mind that with cans of different sizes, you’ll need some time to come up with the best “layout”. Otherwise, there may be gaps or free spaces on the shelves.

Review of hOmeLabs HME030065N Beverage Refrigerator and Cooler

Chilled Beverages for a Chill Time

Now, let’s move on to this fridge’s cooling properties. This is a single zone refrigerator with a handy touch temperature control. It keeps your beverages perfectly chilled with no temp fluctuations. The display is large and on the front of the fridge, for your convenience. A single glance and you’ll know all about the temperature inside.

This hOmeLabs model is equipped with a strong 120V/240W vertical chiller. It’s energy efficient, so you won’t be getting any inflated electric bills. The convection fan will ensure that the cool air is spreading evenly inside the chamber. The only issue is that the fan may cause spacing issues for the top rack.

Auto-defrost? Check. The sensor inside will keep your fridge from ice build-up.

Worried about a power outage? You shouldn’t be. The smart memory system will easily restore the preset temperature.

What if you need this fridge for an office space? With its sleek design and quiet compressor, your colleagues will have zero reasons to complain. When using it at 50 °F, you will hardly hear a sound from it.

To sum up, the hOmeLabs fridge is a stylish way to store your beverages – and keep them chilled at all times.

Euhomy BR-115

Good-Looking, Space-Saving

Want a beverage fridge that will boost your kitchen look? The hi-end refrigerator by Euhomy features a modern, sleek design – and does not compromise on quality.

Get ready to impress the guests. This compact-size fridge model comes with a 3-layer glass door that instantly showcases the contents inside. Absolutely no need to open it to display your rich stock. And when you do need to open the door, it can be done from either side for your convenience.

But that’s not all. Your beverage cans will be highlighted by white LED interior lighting. It’s soft enough and outlines your stock beautifully.

The fridge itself will easily fit under the counter, but it can also stand on its own.

As for the capacity, this 3.2 cu.ft. model can accommodate up to 110-130 soda/beer cans of standard size. Wine lovers could fit several bottles of their favorite brand inside the fridge. However, this is a single zone model, and you’ll need some careful temp adjusting for the wine.

Now, to the shelves. There are 3 removable ones that allow storing the beverages upright or on the side. Overall, the cans fit well, with the small exception of the top shelf, where the cooling fan is placed.

Review of Euhomy BR-115 Beverage Refrigerator and Cooler

A Cooling System You Can Rely On

Euhomy offers an advanced cooling technology with this fridge. It is equipped with a powerful R600a compressor, the energy consumption being around 0.79 kwH per day. The convection fan is small and makes sure that the cold air spreads evenly inside.

The unit itself has air-tight seals that keep the cold in at all times. The triple-paneled door made of tempered glass takes insulation to a whole new level and keeps the humidity balanced out.

This fridge’s temperature control is on the front; it’s touch sensitive and lets you adjust the numbers very easily. You can always check the current temp on the display.

Never worry about your cans getting dead frozen. The Euhomy model offers an automatic defrost system. When it gets too cold inside, this system checks in and prevents the ice build-up. No more cleaning the cans that look (and feel) as if they were shipped straight from Alaska.

Does this model get too noisy? With its 42 dB noise level, it is very quiet and won’t bother you. A good solution for an office space where excessive noise is frowned upon.

Overall, this is a smart and reliable beverage fridge that lives up to your high expectations.

What Is a Beverage Refrigerator?

A beverage refrigerators is a compact device, which inner space is organized in a way that is optimal for storing beverage cans and bottles. You can place such bar refrigerator in any room or even near your swimming pool, so that cool beverages are always at hand, and you don’t need to go to the kitchen to pick them. In addition, the availability of a beverage refrigerator will help free space in your food refrigerator. Further on, you should consider the higher energy efficiency of these compact refrigerators compared to the standard fridge solutions, as well as their cooling efficiency. The wide range of solutions available on the market enables any user to select a beverage refrigerator with an optimal inner space arrangement, no matter what the user prefers: beer, soda, or wine. After reading our review you will be able to easily choose the most suitable beverage refrigerator.

Those who find wine more to their liking should pay attention to wine aerators that allow enjoying the taste and aroma of this refined beverage in its entirety.

If you want your beverages cool for a basket dinner you may want to use the car cooler bags.

As for choosing a refrigerator model for your main food supplies we suggest you to consider the side-by-side or french door refrigerators.

What Features to Compare

Cooled Beverage Type 

First, you need to clearly determine the cooled beverage type you want to keep in a beverage refrigerator you are about to buy, as well as the refrigerator installation options. The refrigerators of this type are divided into the units designed either for storing beverages or wine. With that, there are combined units with a dual zone storage function for storing different beverage types at once.

There are built-in, freestanding, integrated and outdoor beverage refrigerators. Despite such differentiation, the refrigerating units can allow for several types of installation. It is important for the built-in beverage and wine refrigerators to have a venting on the front side. Owing to their design, integrated beverage refrigerators completely blend into the surrounding cabinetry with all their elements including the front panel. The outdoor beverage refrigerators are made of weather-proof materials intended to endure the environment influence. One of the advantages that beverage refrigerators bring is the low power consumption, ranging from 75 to 150 watts.

Capacity and Interior

The next important points are refrigerator capacity and interior. The wine refrigerators are usually equipped with curved shelves designed for storing wine bottles, for the most part of the standard 750 ml volume. At that, the capacity of the beverage refrigerators is estimated in the maximum amount of 12oz cans they can accommodate. The refrigerators of this type use flat shelves. The rearrangement of the shelves and their placing at different levels enable you to adapt the interior space of the refrigerators to your needs, as well as to vary the size of bottles and cans stored. Owing to the removable design of the shelves used, you can easily access even the beverages put deep inside your beverage refrigerator. For the most part, the shelves are the holed glass panels or latticed panels, which serve for maintaining the circulation of the cooled air.

Controls and Special Features

The next essential criterion for choosing a beverage refrigerator or a beer refrigerator is controls and special features of a refrigerator, which depend on the cooling type. You should keep in mind that wine is recommended to be stored in conformity with certain temperature ranges. The suggested temperature for storing white wine lies in a range between 46 °F and 56 °F, while the recommended temperature range for red wine storage is 58 °F - 68 °F. The higher the beer strength the less cooling it needs. The beer type with high alcohol by volume (abv) value have the recommended storage range of 50 °F-60 °F, while the types with lower abv should be stored at 35 °F-50 °F.

The wine refrigerators must be exposed to vibrations as little as possible in order to avoid the undesired churning and stirring of the wine sediment, which may negatively affect the wine gustatory quality. In this respect, units that are equipped with a thermoelectric cooling system are a perfect fit due to the absence of vibrations otherwise caused by the refrigerator operating principle. There is a drawback of thermoelectric cooling that is worth noticing – the temperature inside the thermoelectric units is heavily influenced by the temperature of the environment. That is why you should look to a compressor beverage refrigerator if it is not possible to install the refrigerating unit in a premise that does not have a big temperature differential.

In the vast majority of cases, the bar refrigerator units have an auto defrosting feature, which prevents the ice build up and frosting. In case of choosing a wine refrigerator, you should pay attention to the availability of humidity adjustment feature that allows avoiding wine bottle corks overdrying and shrinkage. A valuable advantage is the glass door of a fridge compartment, which allows seeing what is there inside the refrigerator and keep you from opening the door too often. With that, a must for the wine refrigerators and optional feature for the beverage refrigerators is the UV-protective coating of a glass door for avoiding the exposure of wine to sunlight. A lockable door is another desirable feature for protecting alcoholic beverages. A charcoal air filter can be used for removing unpleasant odors inside a fridge. A reversible door, adjustable height legs, and door handles provide the largest choice of installation options and make a fridge suitable for both, right-handers and left-handers. The availability of ETL certificates for an undercounter beverage refrigerator ensures its compliance with North American security standards. The prevalence of stainless steel finishing and colors or dark colors in the design of beverage refrigerators makes them fit in the vast majority of environment types. A built-in lighting also serves two purposes: it allows seeing what is inside even at night and highlights the esthetical look of wine bottles stored in a beverage refrigerator.
