Phiestina 24-Inch Built-In Dual Zone Wine Cooler Review (PH-150BCW3L)


Phiestina PH-150BCW3L is a 24-inch wide dual zone wine cooler. Left temperature zone holds up to 20 bottles of wine and allows you to adjust temperature from 40°F to 60°F. Right temperature zones holds up to 78 cans with temperature adjustable from 38°F to 50°F. Keep in mind that actual capacity depends on bottle size and how you place them so you might be able to actually fit slightly less.


Operation

Before you turn Phiestina PH-150BCW3L on for the first time you absolutely have to let it sit for 24 hours to let coolant fluid settle in, otherwise you could damage something (like pump). It does make some noise when compressor kicks in or gurgles but it’s not very loud.

Other than that it works good. Keeps your beverages very chill but temperature doesn’t go low enough to make them truly ice cold which some might want to. For most temperature range is sufficient to achieve perfectly balanced taste.


Quality

Phiestina PH-150BCW3L is less expensive than high-end units so overall quality is not as good but it’s not bad. Some consumers also have had reliability issues however most don’t.


Controls

Each temperature zone gets its own set of controls – LCD display that shows temperature setting (if you want to see actual temperature in chamber you will need a thermometer for that) and 4 buttons:

Up” and “Down for temperature adjustments as well “On/Off”, ”Bulb” (to turn interior light on/off) buttons.


Features

Phiestina PH-150BCW3L has dual pane UV tinted glass doors, adjustable legs, front bottom venting (which allows it to be built-in if you desire so) and led ambient lighting.


Size and weight

Phiestina PH-150BCW3L weighs 123 pounds and measures 23.4 inches wide, 22.4 inches deep and 33.9 inches high.


Conclusions

Phiestina PH-150BCW3L is a good wine cooler for money. Quality isn’t quite as good as high-end models but most will find it to be good enough.
