Product Reviews
Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not As EXpected I just received this wine cooler after waiting a month. The advertisement I ordered from stated "30" bottles of wine. This picture of the same cooler shows "38" bottles. The truth is it is IMPOSSIBLE to place even 30 bottles as shown. Three bottles can be put on the bottom shelf sideways and that totals 28 bottles. The shelves are flimsy and too close together. The black wood looks like plastic. Finally, this unit is VERY noisy. I haven't had the unit long enough to truthfully rate the performance, but I would never purchase this unit again. 3/5/10
Rated 2 out of 5 by Would Never Purchase Again This cooler is advertised as holding 30 bottles of wine; it barely holds 28 and then only by placing 3 bottles sideways on the bottom shelf. The shelves are advertised as being wood; they are flimsy and look like cheap black plastic. The shelves are too close together so it is not possible to slide them out easily; the shelf above has to be held up. It is extremely noisy. Not pleasant. Based in this appliance, I would never purchase a Danby appliance again. 3/24/10
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Purchase I was very pleased with the product I received. Looks good works great. 12/3/10
Rated 2 out of 5 by LOOKS GREAT BUT DIDN'T LAST! Bought this Danby-made wine cooler under the Whirlpool label 23 months ago for about $450. This compressor type cooler was meant to be an upgrade from my Haier thermoelectric type cooler which lasted about 2 years. Well after 23 months, the unit stopped cooling. The fans are running by the temperature is just under ambient, 70 deg., when the thermostat settings are set at 55 deg. Called Reliable Parts, who normally carries Whirlpool parts, found that the cooler was made by Danby, so they did not carry the parts. The price of the thermostat assembly was found to be $250!, more than half the price of the unit! Such a disappointment for an expensive, great looking wine cooler that worked great when operational. 4/30/11
