NewAir AWC-270E Compressor Wine Cooler Refrigerator Review (27 Bottle Capacity)

NewAir AWC-270E is a compressor wine cooler with 3.1 cubic foot storage capacity which is enough to hold up to 27 bottles of wine (The actual capacity varies. You will be able to fit 27 standard sized Bordeaux bottles however bottles thicker than that will decrease overall capacity and this is usually the case with expensive wine). NewAir AWC-270E is equipped with R600a refrigerant and you can adjust temperature from 39°F to 64°F which is wider range than large majority of competing models offer.


NewAir AWC-270E works pretty well for money. Temperature is constant and precise for the most part and usually fluctuates within 1 degree however sometimes can fluctuate by up to 3 degrees.

It does make some noise when compressor kicks in. It’s not very loud but you don’t want to have this wine cooler somewhere you want peace and quiet.

NewAir AWC-270E doesn’t have front vent so it can be used only for freestanding application.

Control panel

Controls are located outside of chamber which is a good thing as you don’t have to open the door and let warm air inside to make adjustments. NewAir AWC-270E is equipped with LCD display and 3 buttons: “Light” (to turn interior light on or off), “Down” and “Up” (for temperature adjustment). To switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit you have to hold “Down” and “Up” buttons simultaneously.


NewAir AWC-270E features double-paned glass door for UV protection and lockable door. Chrome racks are removable.

Complaints from consumers

Most common complaints for consumers are reliability (seems like in some cases wine cooler fails after less than 1 year of use) and receiving unit with dents. With that being said most of consumer feedback is positive.

Size and weight

NewAir AWC-270E 27-bottle wine cooler weighs 55 pounds and measures 16.9 inches wide by 20.3 inches deep (including handle) and 32.75 inches tall.
