Light weight, quiet, practical.
I replaced another brand of wine refrigerator which had a compressor that was so loud, we turned it off during dinner. it took two strong men to move it out of our house. The New Air AW-321ED wine cooler was easily carried up our stairs by my wife and me. It's quiet, attractive, and just the right size for our small dinning room/kitchen area.

Bottle diameter to fit into the rack
Bottles with diameter range of 2-3/4" to 3.0" can easily fit into the rack. The upper limit of bottle diameter to fit into the rack is around 3-1/4". It is tight but still doable.

We have four of these...
W. Six months later, we have 2 more which we put in our warehouse for long term storage. Do note, we live in Arizona and due to the non compressor format (but this is what makes it so special), by design, 20 degrees below ambient temperature is all it is capable of maintaining. This is not a garage chiller. Nice looking little units. As with most, "fat" bottles are a challenge, but the bottom 4 slots will accept larger Pinot bottles. Recommended!

Love it!!
Packaged very well, arrived as scheduled in great condition. Remodeled our kitchen and wanted a wine cooler for under the counter. Initially, the cooler became very hot and fans would not shut off. My husband drilled holes in the kitchen cabinets surrounding the wine cooler. The heat factor is no longer a issue since air can now circulate around the cooler. It looks fantastic and everyone who comes into the kitchen comments on how good it looks. Looks like a built-in cooler.

Great fridge
We've had our wine fridge for nearly a month now. Did a lot of research and decided to go with AW-321ED. Fridge arrived well packaged and in perfect condition. After letting it rest a few hours we loaded in the wine. We keep the reds at 66 and the whites at 46. I like the white wine colder so stick a bottle in the food fridge several ours before dinner. We have a great room layout so fridge is next to the dining room table at the end of the kitchen counter. It is very quiet and looks great. Temp is constant and only seems to fluctuate by 1 degree throughout the day. Goal is to store wine to drink through Arizona summers, no long term storage.

I purchased this unit after several hours of reviewing different products. This had the most positive reviews. I am not disappointed. The unit arrived promptly and was well packed with box in box method. The unit was easy to set up. It is well made and looks very pleasant. It is also very quiet when running and maintains the temperature well. All in all, a great purchase that works and looks great.

Water and this cooler exceeds all expectations. It was shipped the same day and that really impresses me. Well done guys! Got it in three days and was well packed too. The unit is very attractive and the wooden racks really stand out. No more metal rack clanging when pulling a bottle out. Doors close and seal very well. The interior lights only light up the top rack but still looks good at night. This cooler is MUCH nicer than units costing far more. I am VERY particular, so trust me on this cooler. Get one !!!

just as advertised....
After much research, I chose Air Water to make this purchase. A previous bad experience with a wine refridg made me value the customer service expectation highly. The unit performs as advertised and hit its temperatures precisely and is holding them accurately. My only slight negative is that the mitered joints of the metallic front surfaces are very thin metal and even a little sharp. The top black surface also has a big dimple ( from the factory ) that shows in reflected light. But it keeps wine cool just fine. Noise level is minor as it first is plugged in...and that vanishes as it reaches temp.

Very Satisfied!
After reading reviews for wine coolers of this size and in this price range, I decided to purchase this one, especially since it was top rated, and I am very happy with my choice! The wine cooler is attractive, I especially like the 2 doors; the 2 temperature zones stay constant and the unit is very quiet (except for when you first plug it in, while it's adjusting). The only negative is that the wider wine bottles don't fit in the shelves, but they do fit on the bottom (you can fit 4 of them there). Overall, I'm very satisfied and would recommend this wine cooler.

Beautiful addition to our new kitchen
For the price, this is a very good appliance. Our kitchen is brand new with granite and SS appliances and we wanted a wine cooler to compliment it. This cooler looks great in it! It is quieter than our GE refrigerator which was very important to us as the wine cooler is close to the family room. The wooden shelves are attractive but stick a little when sliding in and out. The temperature fluctuates with the temperature of the house and the "white" side stays more often at 48 - 50 degrees than the 46 we have it set at. We have owned it less than a month but so far we are very happy with it.

Love it
Had this cooler for a few weeks now. I love the way it looks with the wood shelving and brushed chrome exterior. The fridge is louder than my old 18 bottle Newair fridge but not that bad. The height of each shelf also seems taller or has a little more give for irregular bottles. I took a shelf out for the large bottles. So far, so good. The LED is working. I hope it lasts. The dual temp usually stays accurate and exactly what I set it too.

An excellent dual-zone wine cooler
We have been very happy with this product. It shipped for free and arrived in 3 days. Setup instructions were easy to follow. The wood shelves look great. They are very light weight, however, so hopefully they will last ok. When actively cooling, the unit is a bit noisier than I expected, but it is very quiet while it maintains the set temperature. We have the unit in a room that can get warm during the day (80 or so), and the unit seems to work hard to keep up when the temperature is set below 50. Overall a good buy.

It looks great, and so far the performance has been perfect. I do not like the design of the wood shelves, as I feel they are not supported well, and tend to wobble when putting wine in or getting it out. Though they are very attractive, I would have preferred anchored wire shelves.

Question:
Can this unit be put in a built in cabinet?
- Jim W. on 2014-03-01
Answer:
No back vented wine coolers should be placed within a built in cabinet. This wine cooler should have a minimum of 4 inches of clearance all around the unit for proper ventilation in free standing use.
- CustomerServiceSTAFF on 2014-03-03
Question:
So, in a room that is not hot, temperature does not fluctuate much, not by a window..... But would be under a counter with 4 inch clearance behind, 2 inch on top, and only 1.5 inches each side..... This cooler would not work? Really looking for dual zone and Quiet!! And less than $700, please help!
- Anonymous on 2014-04-06
Answer:
I'm not sure about the confined space issue. I have mine under a counter with the same clearances, but mine is open on the sides. Great little cooler.
- Lyndon H. on 2014-04-06
Answer:
Hi... My client bought two of these and put it along with a taller cooler in his wine room. The room is long and narrow. The two units were placed onto of a counter, side by side. The room is first floor alongside rock, so we thought it would be cool. But with the three units the room ran hot. What we ended up doing is putting in a fan that pulled warm air out and cool air in and that seemed to cool down the room by a lot. Having learned from this experience, I ordered this unit on another project--which has the installation much like yours. Under a counter this time and allowing for 1.5" on each side and room at the back. For this installation, the back wall is an interior wall so what we are doing is putting an air vent at the back to promote air flow. If you read the installation sheets it is not really recommend for under the counter but I think by allowing room on the sides, back plus an air vent will mitigate the heat issue. Hope this helps.
- Don S. on 2014-04-07
Answer:
I just put one in in a similar location - but with only an inch of clearance around the perimeter. The unit should work just fine for your situation I would think, but be advised that it's very possible the manufacturer would not honor the warranty if you have it installed with tighter parameters than they specify. I was willing to take that risk since it was the best wine cooler for the job. Good luck!
- Paul J. on 2014-04-06
Answer:
The clearances you stated should allow for adequate air flow for the compressor/fan to operate properly. The vents are located on the sides of this unit. As a precaution, I would monitor the unit for an initial time period to ensure no issues. Please note the following: * the spacing between shelves is very tight thus burgundy, champagne or other wider style bottles will not fit in the unit unless your remove a sliding shelf * the wood sliding shelve are poor quality and be careful when pulling the shelf toward you to remove a bottle The unit has been working properly now for one year. This unit appears to be the best available for under a $1,000. It is all about the quality of the cooling unit - hard to find reliable wine coolers. Did you consider the New Air units with metal racks?
- stephen m. on 2014-04-06
Question:
What is the maximum diameter in inches of bottles stored in the top shelves? Varietal descriptions do not help because different vintners use different bottle sizes?
- Mac C. on 2014-05-17
Answer:
Bottle diameters of 2-3/4" to 3.0" can easily fit into the racks. Maximum is 3-1/4" diameter, it will be a tight fit!
- Albert C. on 2014-05-18
Answer:
The "fatter" bottles, usually Pinot Noir are harder to get into any shelf! The shelves are tightly spaced, good for normal diameter bottles! I love this wine fridge, good value and high performance - very quiet, and maintain perfectly constant temp when I set it at 55F.
- Albert C. on 2014-05-17
Answer:
3.25 inch diameter is about the max that will fit on any shelf.

Question:
Does the AW 321 ED have dual pane glass doors that are tinted to protect the wine from sunlight ?
- Anonymous on 2014-09-04
Answer:
Yes there is dual pane glass in the doors. It is slightly tinted, however I would not know how much UV protection exists - if any.
- Charles C. on 2014-09-04
Answer:
Yes, the glass is tinted. This is such a great wine cooler, I bought one for my sister for a wedding present.
- Virginia M. on 2014-09-05
Answer:
No don't think so
- Brenda F. on 2014-09-05
Answer:
yes the glass is tinted but I would not put cooler where it would get a lot of direct sunlight because I think it would have an adverse effect on the cooling function.
- Eve S. on 2014-09-04
Answer:
yes the glass doors are tinted. the cooler doesn't work all that well though and struggles to keep temperature when the room temperature rises. I would not purchase this item again.
- David R. on 2014-09-04
Answer:
Yes, but putting the unit where direct sunlight would hit it is not a good idea. It will make the unit work harder to maintain the proper temperature
- Elliott G. on 2014-09-04
Question:
wine cooler does it come 30" width with under cabinet mounting?
- Carol on 2014-10-03
Answer:
I was told by contractor it will not work under counter as needs better ventilation. I also do not like wooden shelves, as they are bulky and do not slide easily. Think stainless shelves would have been a better option but over all, like it very much.
- sharon w. w. on 2014-10-03
Answer:
The New Air AW-321ED, is a rear venting free standing unit. This item is not manufactured to be recessed into a space.
- CustomerServiceSTAFF on 2014-10-07
Question:
Also this will be an undercounter Unit cutout is in the island. Will this be fine?
- Anonymous on 2014-11-06
Answer:
I was told by contractor this would not work as unit needed more breathing room. I would check the specs if I were you. You do not want to overheat your unit.
- sharon w. w. on 2014-11-06
Answer:
I bought mine to put in a cut out too and have not had good luck maintaining tempertures. My orginal purchse temperatue ran high one day it went to 95 destoring my wine. I returned turned it and they sent another one but it will not maintain temperatures when installed under the counter cutout either. Very Disappointed, I have been using it outside of my cabneit and it works fine, I now have an open hole under my counter.
- Terrie N. on 2014-11-06
Answer:
I would recommend against this unit under counter. It needs a lot of ventilation to keep the heat moving away from the cool side for white wine. I keep my white wines at 46 and it struggles unless away from walls and such. It's overall a functional, OK unit except for my point above.
- Michael B. on 2014-11-06
Answer:
This unit needs adequate ventilation to work properly. I had it placed 6 inches from a wall and the temp on both sides raised to 55 degrees. I moved the unit to 12 inches of clearance in the back and the temp dropped back down to 46 degrees. I would think being in a closed under counter position may cause a problem unless there is sufficient ventilation in back of the wine cooler. Otherwise, it is a great wine cooler.
- Fred W. on 2014-11-06
Answer:
Hi!! This is a freestanding wine cooler it cannot be placed under the counter it needs air circulation at all times. Putting your wine cooler under the counter will cause the unit to over heat and not function properly. We do carry models that are specially made to be place under the counter and exhaust from the front AWR-460DB and AWR-520SB. If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of our customer service representative they would be more happy to answer any of your questions!
- Kenia S. on 2014-11-06

This has been a very reliable unit. Ours is freestanding, but it should work well as a built in. The only concern might bee the minimum clearance required. Since this model does not use a compressor, heat build up should be minimal.

Answer:
This unit requires lots of air space on it's sides for exhausting heat. Under counter mounting might be to confining.

Answer:
I think you would be fine as long as you preserve the recommended air gap around the sides and back.... I think it was 2" ? All around. Otherwise unit might overheat.

Question:
Can this be used for soda pop cans as a Opposed to wine?
- Anonymous on 2014-11-06
Answer:
I'm sure it could. If it fits wine bottles, then just consider that multiple soda cans would be the size of a normal wine bottle.
- Jeff C. on 2014-11-06
Answer:
yes, soda cans, and regular soda bottles fit just fine.
- Paul J. on 2014-11-06
Answer:
This unit will chill whatever you put inside. The shelf slots are narrow enough that a soda can will not fall through, but space efficiency may be a challenge. There is no stop at the back of the shelf, so cans would have to be oriented in the same direction as the wine bottles in the photo rather than laterally. I would also think that if you like your soda really cold the unit may be overly challenged. This is a cooler - not a refrigerator.
- Charles C. on 2014-11-06
Answer:
Yes, you can put soda cans in there but the shelves and cooler are designed to fit bottles so it isn't going to be as neatly fitting. Also, as Charles mentioned, this unit isn't a refrigerator so the temperatures will not go as low as a refrigerator unit would. You can set the sodas to be as cool as 46 degrees Fahrenheit.

Question:
my new unit arrived last night. i see only the first 3 are illuminated by the internal light is this normal? is there something wrong with my unit??
- amy h. on 2014-12-10
Answer:
Based on my personal experience, there is nothing wrong with your unit's lighting, albeit it is of poor quality. Doesn't really light up much of anything, so pretty useless in that respect. However, I think the unit itself is decent enough for the price and maintains reasonable dual temperatures, which was my goal.
- Craig L. on 2014-12-17
Answer:
There is nothing wrong with your wine cooler. The internal light only lights up about the first three rows. It is a low wattage bulb so you don't get any heat from the bulb. It is a really good wine cooler. I bought one for my sister as a wedding gift. She loves hers too. Enjoy
- Virginia M. on 2014-12-11
Answer:
Hi Amy, it doesn't look like the light can illuminate the entire unit when it is being filled with bottles. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us at (855) 963-9247 or support@newair.com.
- Mark S. on 2014-12-10
Answer:
I don't believe there would be an issue with the light that would cause it to illuminate the unit less. I do know that wood shelves do not reflect the light as chrome shelves would. Wood shelves also take up more space and that would make it harder for the light to fill the entire unit.
- Mark S. on 2014-12-10
Answer:
With lights only mounted in the top, it is impossible for the light to reach beyond they second shelf when filled. I think the lighting is more for ambiance than for reading labels???..
- Charles C. on 2014-12-11
Answer:
The internal lights give off a blue light that is of nominal value in terms of lighting this wine cooler. it is more for appearance and there is wrong with your u nit. Note - check the interior bottom of the unit for accumulation of water due to cooling process - on left side of my my unit - It takes a couple of paper towels to absorb the accumulated water - unsure how long it takes thus would check at least monthly. Unit is okay for the price depending on how long the cooling unit lasts - you will discover the spacing of the shelving is an issue for some bottle types such as Pinot Noir - enjoy your wines!
