Firebird WC0029 Wine Chiller – Features

The Firebird WC0029 Wine Chiller operates on two temperature zones (dual zone) with a temperature range of 44-66F. The appliance comes with double paned glass doors with rear vents and a double cabin- top and bottom, in case you want to store both red and white wines separately. This wine cooler also comes with adjustable legs which enable you to position it on different surfaces (since it is freestanding). The thermoelectric system makes it ideal for minimizing vibrations and wines can age without disturbance.

System

This wine chiller operates on a thermoelectric cooling system which hardly makes any noise. There are very few moving parts which result in lesser vibrations. Vibrations are known to disturb the sediments in wine, causing it to develop an unpleasant taste.

Temperature Range and Controls

With touch controls the Firebird WC0029 enables the wine user to keep drinks at a temperature ranging from 44 to 66F degrees. There are 2 zones (dual zones) so you can store wines at different temperatures, possibly one for service and another for storage.

Firebird WC0029 Wine Chiller – Capacity

The wine chiller can hold up to 21 bottles of wine.

Shelves

Seven chrome-plated metallic shelves which comfortably hold the 21 bottles and also displays them elegantly via the paned doors. The shelves can be removed conveniently while cleaning or restocking your wine collection.
