Electrolux Wine Coolers

This is an interesting unit. First of all, it is aesthetically pleasing with digital controls and perhaps the best feature for any wine cooler, LED lighting. As you know from our lighting posts, LED emits zero heat and at 3 watts produces the same output as a 50 or 60 watt incandescent bulb. This is highly significant for wine as the tannins in wine are highly reactive to light and heat.

At $1299, this is a great unit.

There is one small problem, however. The temperature gauge has one setting. Typically red and white wines require different settings with red being warmer than white. Now this is personal preference, and the only wine system with 2 true zones for wine is SubZero...The SubZero costs more than double...
