Koldfront 24-Bottle Freestanding Dual-Zone Wine Cooler Review


The Koldfront 24-Bottle Freestanding Dual-Zone Wine Cooler is designed to cool your red and white wines simultaneously. That is because it contains two compartments that enable it to cool the wines to their perfect storage or serving temperatures. It can hold 24 bottles, which is a good medium capacity size if you are storing wines for use at your home.

Product Features

Thermoelectric Cooler

The Koldfront 24 Bottle Wine Cooler uses thermoelectric cooling technology. This technology allows the system to run quietly and without any vibrations. It also saves you on energy. That means your electricity bill will not shoot up just because you bought this wine cooler.

No Vibrations

The thermoelectric cooler does not vibrate like a regular refrigerator does. That is a plus for wine storage since vibrations degrade the quality of wine. Vibrations disturb the wine sediments and spoil the taste. With this cooler, you can be confident that will not happen.

Silent Operation

The Koldfront 24 Bottle Free Standing Dual Zone Wine Cooler runs silently due to its thermoelectric cooling system. If you like silence at night, that is a plus. You will also be happy to know that it does not run continuously but only when the temperature rises. That mostly happens when you open its door to take out your wine.

Two Cooling Compartments

koldfront_24_bottle_wine_cooler_wooden_shelf_detailI like that I can store both red and white wines in separate sections. Ideally, they should get cooled to different temperatures. When storing in a regular cooler that has only one compartment, you’ll always have to chill your white wines additionally before serving. But this device will allow you to keep your white wines cooler than your reds. The top compartment gets cooled to a temperature range of 54 to 66°F, while the bottom one can be set within a temperature range of 46 to 66°F.

Digital Control

Most regular refrigerators only provide a dial knob for setting the temperature of the internal compartment. This wine cooler provides you with a digital control pad. That means you can set the precise temperature that you want for your wine collection. And each zone can be set individually. The digital control system also includes a microcontroller to monitor and keep the internal temperatures in control. It is the perfect internal temperature control for temperature sensitive items like wine.

Sleek Design

The Koldfront 24 Bottle Dual Zone Wine Cooler aims to amaze in its appearance. It has a metallic handle, black cabinet, with a stainless steel front door, blue interior lighting, and a slim vertical design. It is the kind of appliance you want to decorate your living space.



  • It has two compartments for cooling red wine and white wine
  • Digital temperature control
  • Silent operations
  • No vibrations
  • Energy efficient
  • Cools the different compartments to different temperatures


The only real negatives are minor points to consider when operating this model.

  • Do not keep opening the door, as it strains the cooling system.
  • Hold the tray with both handles when pulling it out. Otherwise, it will drop to the compartment below it.
  • The door must be opened to 180 degrees in order to pull out the storage trays. This means that you essentially need to place this unit in a spot where there is empty space directly to it’s right.


I like that this wine cooler enables me to store both red and white wines at their perfect temperatures. It’s a little pricier than some comparable models, however, the dual-zone cooling in a medium-capacity cooler is something that will appeal to many buyers.


Koldfront 18-Bottle Freestanding Dual-Zone Wine Cooler Review


Freestanding wine coolers are super convenient. You don’t have to worry about building out special areas for them and can simply plug yours in and let it do its thing. With the number of electric wine cellars available these days, it can be tough figuring out which one will not only work well, but be spacious enough and look decent enough to put on display. And if you fancy both red and white wines, there’s also the issue of finding a cooler that will somehow keep both at their respective optimal temperatures.

The Koldfront 18-Bottle Freestanding Dual-Zone Wine Cooler not only holds enough bottles to store most people’s wine collections, it works incredibly well and sports an attractive facade. Should you splurge and get one? Here’s more information about the model and whether it will fit your needs.

Product Details

koldfront_18_bottle_wine_cooler_display_detailUnlike most wine coolers, this Koldfront model has two temperature zones: the top chills wine from 46 to 66 degrees Fahrenheit, and the bottom of the cooler chills it between 54 and 66 degrees. This feature makes the chiller suitable for storing reds and whites at the same time and getting each to the right temperature. Imagine being able to grab two bottles of red and white wine, opening them, and finding that both could be enjoyed without additional chilling—that’s the type of advantage that comes with owning this fridge.

It also has wooden shelving, which is a break from the norm. As opposed to the metal shelves that are inside most wine coolers, the wood does a much better job at protecting bottles from cracking or breaking, and it provides a more stable surface. The motor inside this model is thermoelectric and runs fairly quietly. Plus, the doors of the fridge are tempered and also has a safety lock, which is a good feature for those who have children or pets.




You’ll find that this Koldfront cooler has tons of benefits:

  • It has two zones so you can keep different types of wine at their proper temperatures.
  • Though it stores 18 bottles, this cooler isn’t imposing and can fit into most average sized kitchen areas.
  • The wine cooler has wooden shelving, which is not only best for bottles to lay on but looks great.
  • It’s a freestanding model.
  • This fridge has a safety lock and tempered glass doors.


There are a few drawbacks to the fridge, but most aren’t dealbreakers:

  • The cooler has a slim design, but it isn’t small enough to fit on counter tops or really small spaces.
  • If you only drink one type of wine, the dual zone temperature feature may be a moot point.
  • Those with smaller wine collections may feel they’re paying for storage space that they don’t need.


This Koldfront wine cooler is awesome if you have a modest number of bottles to store or you have both reds and whites in your collection. The dual zone temperature feature works well, and let’s not forget that the cooler itself is attractive.

All in all, this is a great value wine fridge for under $200. Its reasonable price point and wealth of excellent features makes this chiller a smart investment if you often drink wine or keep it around for entertaining.
