Kalamera KRC-40DZB 24” Beverage/Wine Cooler – Review
Kalamera KRC-40DZB is a 24-inch dual zone wine and beverage refrigerator with compressor cooling. Being dual zone cooler it’s divided in two parts – left and right. Left side features 7 sliding beech wooden shelves with temperature adjustable from 40°F to 66°F (4.4°C to 18.9°C), whereas right side is fitted with 5 stainless steel wire shelves with temperature adjustable from 38°F to 55°F (3.3°C to 12.8°C).
For the most part Kalamera KRC-40DZB performs well. Temperatures are pretty precise and constant. Only issue is if you fill it completely full, then for some reason it seems to struggle to keep your beverages properly cold although they are still chill.
Kalamera KRC-40DZB is also a bit noisy. It’s not super loud but it can be slightly louder than regular fridge.
Kalamera KRC-40DZB features blue led interior ambient lighting however when fully stocked drinks block most of it.
Other features include lockable doors, digital LED temperature controls, two layer transparent glass and temperature memory (in case of power outage Kalamera KRC-40DZB wine cooler will go back to previously set temperature when power is restored).
Kalamera KRC-40DZB comes almost completely assembled, you just have to attach the handles which takes a minute or two to complete. Since it has front venting it can be installed under the counter or used as free-standing unit.
Suggested built-in dimensions are as follows – 23.8 inches wide, 22.4 inches deep and 34.1 inches high.
Kalamera KRC-40DZB is well packaged (which sometimes is not the case with other units) so any damages are unlikely during shipping.
Although decent Kalamera KRC-40DZB isn’t the best beverage cooler. It has some imperfections here and there but similar units are often considerably more expensive so overall KRC-40DZB offers good value for money.
