Capacity

Holding 8 Bottles, capacity is of the “keep some ready for drinking” class.

The Haier HVTEC08ABS holds 8 Bordeaux-sized (standard wine) bottles in a single temperature controlled chill zone.  This is great for people who want to store a few bottles chilled and on hand.  It can keep either red or white at a good drinking temperature,  but not both, as it will keep all the wine at the same temp. Quite a few reviewers report using it to store other items like sports drinks, homemade cheese and even expensive fragrances.

To store wine larger than standard size Bordeaux bottles, remove a shelf to make room.

Zones

A single cooling zone keeps red or white – but not both – at a good drinking temperature.

Temperature Control

Temperature control is easy to use with a blue LED digital readout and convenient up/down controls. The controls are located on the outside of the unit.  This makes them easy to read and adjust without opening the door.

Cooling

Thermoelectric cooling means low vibration and noise, a plus.  Virtually all customers report this unit is very quiet.

Customers report good temperature regulation, within 2 degrees.

Temperature regulation is from 46 to 66 degrees.

Haier warns that if your ambient temperature is 77 degrees or higher, the lowest achievable temperature will be 50 – 52 degrees.  At an ambient temperature of 73 degrees, the lowest temperature will be 46 to 48 degrees.  This is cold enough for most white wine drinkers.
