The NewAir AW-181E bottle thermoelectric unit is a top of the line wine cooler that serves your favorite wine at the absolutely perfect temperature.  No matter if you are enjoying a quiet evening at home or entertaining many guests, this wine cooler is a great choice.  The fridge stores up to 18 bottles of wine at any time and includes five full length sculpted chrome shelves that slide out to accommodate any type of collection.

Wine Cooler Benefits

  • Holds up to 18 standard sized bottles of wine

Convenient Digital Temperature Control
The NewAir AW-181E features a convenient digital temperature control that allows you to carefully monitor the internal temperature at all times.  This will ensure that your  wine won't lose any of its original taste or aroma. The easy to use control panel lets you set the perfect temperature anywhere between 54 and 66°F. The push button controls make it very simple to use, and controls the internal temperatures with absolute accuracy.  The heavy duty glass door helps to improve insulation to further maintain the perfect temperature.

Great addition!
This wine cooler is fabulous for the casual wine drinker. It fits perfectly in our new sunroom, looks and works great. It arrived on time and was packed perfectly. No set up issues, just took the two screws, put on the pretty handle and plugged it in after waiting the recommended two hours. We couldn't be happier with this purchase.

18 bottle Wine Cooler - Great Performance and Look
I was surprised how well the unit was packed. It was very simple to get it up and running. I would only recommend an insert or description of how to put the handle on the unit. The inside holes weren't as visible for my eyes. The unit gets to appropriate tempreture quickly and holds it tempreture. I am also impressed with its look and overall quality. It's the best wine cooler available on the market. Thanks.

This product is perfect
My wife and I love to have two or three bottles of Pinot Noir a week and the sixteen bottle unit is great. It is very quite and so far kept our red wines at an even 61. We will probably add another unit to keep our white wines. It seems as though people encounter the most problems with the dual zone coolers, and this is the best way to eliminate that issue.

Nice Wine Cooler
This wine cooler is excellent for storing the red wines that I prefer. If you prefer white wines you may want a cooler that goes to a lower temperature. I like the blue LED light that lights the inside. It's modern looking and does the job for me. It does make a little noise that can be heard when things are quiet. I am please with the wine cooler.

Very Nice Wine Cooler
I recently purchased this item and have had it for a few days. So far I am very happy with it. The exterior of the cooler is quite attractive as well as the interior shelving. It did not take long for the temperature to reach where I set it. It was easy to setup and start using. Here are some of the details during my setup. The item arrived on time and came well packed. The boxes had labels on them requesting that you retain all the packing materials in case you need to return the item. Very Important! The instructions were very short on assembly and focused more about the care of the unit. They were simple enough to follow though. The only piece needing assembly was the door handle which is very easy to install. There is also a filter in the back which you may need to reseat if it comes off and a water tray which is already connected under the unit. The instructions state to clean the inside with a damp cloth. After that they say to make sure the cooler was set upright on a level surface and to let the cooler sit for two or more hours before plugging it in. After doing these steps I plugged in the unit and set the tempertaure to where I wanted. The unit hummed a bit, but the noise wasn't very intrusive. After it reached the temperture I set, it was very quiet. Everything was working and later on that evening I placed my wine bottles inside. Most of the bottles I have are standard size, but two were wider. Those two would not fit between the racks like the others, but they did fit on the bottom. It did not take long for the bottles to cool down to the temperature of 54 which I had set, and the cooler has kept the temperature steady since. So far so good.

Great little wine fridge!
We recently bought a house and there was an open space under the counter that was just begging for a wine fridge! Took the measurements and this fridge was one of the few that would fit perfectly (with sufficient space at the sides to allow air circulation). Ordered the fridge and it arrived less than a week later in very sturdy packaging. Really easy to setup and was working within a few minutes. It's pretty quiet and keeps our white wine cold. The blue light also looks very stylish (can be switched off if you want). We removed the top shelf so that we can fit champagne in there but otherwise all bottles fit perfectly. Overall great little fridge.

Love the wine cooler but am most impressed with customer service. First cooler was damaged. Sent an email about this and had another cooler within a week. They sent an email with links to prepaid shipping label and to FedEx to schedule pickup at my house. Lauren was my contact and was just wonderful alleviating my concerns. All companies should have this attitude. Thank you!

very easy to put together
The only features I would like to see changed are the space between the racks. Some bottles are hard to fit. The other thing I would like to see changed is the light, when the top shelf is filled the light does not filter down the unit. All together I love this unit, I look forward to coming home and have a glass of wine at the perfect temperature.

Nice addition to the kitchen!
I got this product for my boyfriend as a housewarming gift and we love it! Very quiet fridge (can't even tell when it's on or off) and the blue LED light adds to the neat, modern look combined with the stainless steal. Only small issue I have come across is you cannot put a bottle in the middle of the top rack if you want the light to shine down throughout the rest of the fridge. Otherwise, great addition to our new house!

Classy looking wine cooler
This cooler really is great to look at with a classy stainless steel finish and a blue interior light. Bottles fit in well, but I don't have any special over-sized bottles. Temperature does seem pretty constant. My husband was interested in this thermoelectric unit after our previous unit was no longer able to maintain the freon charge. It is very quiet. The free shipping was a great plus. My only complaint is that I would have preferred a unit with the right height for a built-in under the counter unit. I didn't see anything like that available with this particular cooler. Now I have all this extra space at the top (under my counter) that looks weird. My husband is going to try to build a wooden wine rack stained the color of our cabinets to fill in that space. Other than looks great and works well.

attractive
Quiet attractive cooler would rate "excellent" if interior was spacious enough to house pinot noir bottles without having to pull out racks and stagger bottles to store them. One inch more interior space in both directions would be a huge improvement. That said, still a really great price, quick delivery, and would recommend to my skinny bottle friends.

Not an 18 bottle unit
Several common wines simply don't fit without shoving them in and tearing the labels. Shelves can be removed but then it is no longer a 18 bottle unit. The temp could be a bit colder to be ideal for whites. We don't mind drinking reds a bit on the cool side. But the temp, temp control, and looks are acceptable. Unfortunately many wine bottles simply don't fit in it.

Question:
Can it be plugged into a heavy duty cord which in turn would plug into a wall socket? What is the length of the power cord?
- Dale S. on 2014-08-04
Answer:
Dale, The power cord is only about 12-16 inches long max. Yes, I currently have mine plugged into a multi-port power strip. Hope this helps.
- Gay T. on 2014-08-04
Answer:
Hi Dale! The cord is easily 6 foot long and heavy duty. The instructions say that the use of an extension cord is not recommended. It requires a standard 110V~60Hz electrical outlet with 3-pin plug. Hope this helps. Brenda
- Brenda S. on 2014-08-05
Answer:
The longer the extension cable, the higher the gauge of wire needed. The unit has a fairly low current draw so a 16 gauge cable is good for up to about 25'. Any longer and I would step up to 14 gauge . 14 is good to about 75'.
- Glen C. on 2014-08-05
Answer:
Yes..my guess is that an 8 foot extension is not too long...
