We got this wine cellar to hold all the extra wine we got for our wedding. It looks great and was a bit bigger than I thought it would be but I wanted a bigger one so that turned out to be a bonus for us. The controls on it are heat/touch sensitive so we didn't even have to physically touch the refridgerater to change the temperature. *It would be better if you actually had to push in a button to adjust it because I worry that the heat from the oven will be sensed by the cellar and the temp will change without my knowledge. That would be our only complaint. Overall this is a great buy. It holds the most bottles for the price and is a very nice and attractive little cellar.
Purchased March of 2009. It initially came with 1 broken leg, so I returned it and the next one came with a broken leg. I returned that one and the 3RD one cmae with a broken leg!!! Well, I kept it because I couldn't find another to fit in the location it needed to go. Since, it hasn't remained at the exact temperature specified. If set at 55 degrees, it would vary between 55 and 59 unopened. At almost a year, it's getting worse. The temp is now 63 consistently, with a setting of 55. I called Danby for service and none of the service providers Danby provided work on the product. Needless to say, the service providers must not have much confidence in Danby wine coolers. If you purchase, MAKE SURE YOU GET AN EXTENDED WARRANTY FROM THE STORE!!!
This was the first time to use the site-to-store shipping. I was very impressed. The fridge is a great product for the money. I looked at many different wine fridges before I picked this one. It works great.
Overall, I love it.
But small noice that I never expect is pretty annoying if you put it in your room like me.
When you sleep, you have to cover light also.
We purchased this unit in August 2009 - approximately 8 months later, it stopped operating. We performed rountine maintenance on it and called Danby for help. They said that we had to take the unit to an authorized dealer, that we had to assume all responsibility for diagnostics and labor. The nearest dealer was 100 miles away - calculating 2 rounds trips (drop off/pick up) = 200 miles. Bench time runs @ $35.00 hour and could be more. Customer Service at Danby in Canada could have cared less. Not worth replacing or repairing. We will never purchase another Danby product again.
Going to be calling the customer service tomorrow. Wish me luck, because after 90 days the warranty reads that they don't pay for labor or transportation to have it fixed. That could cost more than the unit itself. I purchased this Nov. 21st 2011 and for the past week (April 2012), I have noticed that it's not cooling. Well tried a few things at home. The fans are still running. The inside of the machine looks clean. Infact it still smells horrendously like a nasty plastic smell that it came with. I live in NM, so imagine my suprise when I discovered that my precious wines purchased around the country were a toasty 79 degrees! I hope I can atleast recover on the cost of the cooler itself. Looking at the reviews now, I see the only reason this product has high reviews is because it looks great and is an awesome gift.... at first. Sure seems like the people that have had this 6+months have a totally different opinion and I am not the only one that put my trust in a bad product.
I received the cooler before it was estimated to arrive.(good) The description was good and so far the cooler meets expectations. I only gave an average for durability since 3-4 weeks doesn't prove anything. The instruction manual says the light switch is either light on, light off, or light on only the door open. Wrong, only on or off regardless of door open or shut. The manufacturer
customer service did not respond when I emailed
about the light so I would rate them as poor!
Have had this product for less than a year, and it suddenly stopped working. We were very disappointed, because it seemed to be such a ideal product - up until the time it just died...
This wine cooler met and exceeded all my expectations. It is attractive, fits well in my apartment, was fairly priced, and keeps all my beverages cool.
If you are in the market for a small wine cooler this would be a good choice.
The shipping from this vendor is impressionable fast! The product is o.k, cute appearance but it is too small for the amount of bottle it claims to hold. It can hold up to 12 but of the smallest wine bottle not regular size. It is very light to carry, it can be put on a kitchen counter-top easily, just for looks or to hold 6 to 7 bottles.
This product was purchased last October 2009 and seemed to work good for about 5 months. The problem was that the cooler would not hold a constant temperature when you set it at 55 for example it would only go down to 64-67 range.
It stopped working altogether a few days ago and the power completly went out.
Now we have to search to find a decent wine cooler!
I can confirm the other reviewers' complaints about one leg missing. The fourth leg doesn't appear to fit right. I ordered another one because I couldn't believe their engineers could screw up something this obvious, but the replacement was the same part. I ended up getting a bolt from the hardware store with the correct length I needed to have the fourth leg be at the right height.
The fridge itself worked fine for a little more than a year, and then started cycling on and off. I called Danby customer service and they said it was probably a bad compressor, but for the cost of a service call, it is not worth fixing.
Based on other reviews of Danby products in addition to my own negative experience, I'd say they make lousy products and I wouldn't buy another one.
Product although shows a minimum temperature
That it goes down to , barely keeps wine room temp at 68 - 69 degrees
We love our wine cooler. It is just the right size for the space we had. This cooler does a great job of cooling to just the right wine temperature.
Ordered wine cooler to be picked up at local store. The cooler only took a couple days to arrive. The cooler works great. It doesn't make any noise at all, stays at a constant temperature and the controls are so easy to use you don't even need to look at the instructions.
Very pleased with purchase.
Have not had it long enough to give it a hight rating. If it contiues to provide care free service I would rate it very high vis-avis cost.
How can I review an item when it never worked? This cooler was 'dead on arrival". It never cooled at all. We tried to set the temperature lower but to no avail. It stayed warm. My son also bought one and the digital display died after about a week. I'll try another brand next time.
good value, pull out a shelf and you can put a 1.5 bottle in. just the right size for a small amount of bottles
I've had this cooler now for 3 weeks. It was a replacement for an off brand that I had for 2 years which died. I researched as best as I could settling on this model. Most of the higher rated models were much more expensive. I like the fact that it has a digital temp read out on the front and a blue light for display inside. It's totally quite, don't know it's there. I put 12 bottles of room temp wine in it and it didn't take long to get them down to the set 50 degrees. It seems well constructed. My only wish is that it would have had 3 rows instead of four. I have built in cabinets, and it would only fit under 1 cabinet that we actually installed. Also, I wanted a 16 but couldn't find anything in my budget to fit under my cabinets. It would be nice to review this again in a year to see how it's doing. I gave it 5 stars because there are so far no complaints.
