Wine coolers are definitely needed in Texas, but as muchas we love our Texas wine, we also love beer and other beverages that come in cans or bottles. The NewAir NWB057BSD0 wine cooler handles all that.
The wine cooler arrived in a box that was easy to handle and maneuver. After opening the top of the box, I was then wondering how to pull the wine cooler out, but then I realized the cooler is shipped on top of a cardboard pallet, so the outside box slid up and off the cooler with ease.
After separating the parts, there a few sets of paper instructions and one was a Quick Start Guide that also included what parts should be in the package. After reading through the Owner’s Manual (I am one of those strange people who read the instructions first), I was ready to finish assembling the wine cooler. The only part that needed to be attached was the door handle and after locating the screw holes underneath the door seal, it installed easily. The door hinge is on the left side, but NewAir provides another hinge that you can use if you want to reverse the door swing.
There were a couple of parts that I had to re-read the manual to understand what they were. One piece was what looked like half a shelf and that is called the SplitShelf™. Depending on what you want to store on the first shelf, you can have either a full-length top shelf or a half-length shelf using the SplitShelf. Nice.
The last piece is a small clear container. I then remembered this container from a previous NewAir wine cooler and was surprised it was still not listed in the Owner’s Manual. It is a moisture cup used inside the wine cooler to hold moisture beads to prevent mold in the wine cooler. An article on the NewAir support site explains this nicely.
The wine cooler can be built-in underneath a kitchen counter, but I opted to use it as a free-standing wine cooler. The wine cooler is stated to hold 13 wine bottles and 48 cans. Wine bottles come in all different sizes, so your mileage may vary by what wine bottles you do store.
The top two shelves work great for cans, but some people prefer bottles too, and they will work in this wine cooler too. Replace the top shelf with the SplitShelf and you now have a storage area for those taller items. This is nice for that storage, but I’m not sure how I would get a can out of the back half-shelf without moving all the bottles first. I’ll have to think about that one.
The dual-zone controls are perfect for this wine cooler since cans of soda and beer are stored at colder temperatures than most wine bottles. The top zone handles temperatures between 37°F – 50°F while the bottom zone ranges from 50°F – 66°F. If you do not need to store soda, beer, or other beverages like that, the top zone is perfect for storing sparkling wine at a cooler temperature. Most wine coolers have a light and this wine cooler is no exception with a very nice blue light shining in both the top and bottom zones.
The door has a very nice dark tint to it which is perfect for wine bottles since they are supposed to be kept in a cooler climate without light.
All in all, the NWB057BSD0 win cooler makes a very nice addition to any house to keep your beverages chilled. Use the link below to order your wine cooler and make sure you use the special coupon code to get 10% off the purchase!
