Very very sweet looking wine fridge. If you have a high end kitchen with a modern vibe, this is it. It will fit to a T. Hard to find a 12" width unit that looks this good. I've had no problems storing my micro collection of white wines in this.

I've had this for well over 2 years now and I have not had any issues with it. It keeps temp (just recently checked with a thermometer) and looks good. There is no reason to complain. I paid quite a bit more than the current lowest price. For 300 I think this is a good bargain

I love its look and how it fits right into my kitchen bar effortlessly. It also comes in handy for storing my favourite wines with its two layer make up.

This wine fridge has a nice design and solid build. It keeps the 2 zones under good temperature control. However the compressor comes on very frequently, as if it turns on to alternate control of the 2 zones. Because it is not a thermoelectric unit, its operating noise level is quite audible.

I had this put into the kitchen about 2 months ago. We originally planned to have a 15" unit installed but ended up with a design that gave us room for a 12" unit. No regrets getting this. It holds 17 standard bottles and has a really nice looking facade.

3 January 2018

this is my second one. I bought an open box and I thought it was a little noisy, but after the whole remodeling project, I don't hear it anymore.

11 September 2014

The top area is for white wine and only holds 6 bottles at the most. If I had known this, I don't think I would have purchased it. The bottom area does not get as cold.

I am in need of a replacement door handle.....where do I order it. I have model #BWR171DS

27 February 2019

Overall I am very satisfied with this unit, except for one small complaint - the starter went out after 13 months. Contacted Jackie at Whynter Customer Support and she extended the warranty and is having us send the unit back for repair and/or replacement.

Excellent wine cooler. Going strong for three years. Quiet and holds temp consistently.
