Phiestina PH-29BD (also known as PH-29BDSP) is a compressor cooled dual-zone wine cooler that holds up to 29 bottles of wine. Actual capacity however varies – it depends on the size of bottles you own, in some cases you might be able to only fit 20.
Upper zone features 2 shelves and has temperature adjustable from 40°F to 50 °F which makes it great for white, sparkling and dessert wines (like Chardonnay, Riesling, Champagne, Sparkling Wine, Dessert Wine, Ice Wines or Asti Spumante), whereas lower zone has 3 shelves with temperature adjustable from 50°F to 66 °F making it perfect for fortified, red and some whites (like Vintage Port, Bordeaux, Shiraz, Red Burgundy, Cabernet, Rioja, Pinot Noir, Chianti, Zinfandel, Tawny/NV Port, Beaujolais, Rosé, Viognier or Sauternes).
Phiestina PH-29BD works like it’s supposed to. Temperature control is accurate, quite constant and well distributed. Phiestina PH-29BD works quietly and cools down quite fast. However keep in mind it should be left standing upright for 48 hours to let cooling fluids settle in (if manual states different information follow it instead).
Phiestina PH-29BDSP can be left freestanding or be built-in. Suggested built in dimensions are as follows: 14.9 inches wide,25.4 inches deep and 33.9 inches high. Wine cooler itself is 14.9 inches wide, 22.4 inches deep (excluding the handle) and 33.9 inches high.
Controls are very similar you see on most other wine coolers. There are total of 6 buttons. Each temperature zone has its separate “up” and “below” buttons for temperature adjustment. Then there is a button for turning interior light on/off and another one for switching between Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature scales.
There are also two LCD displays – one for each temperature zone. They don’t show the actual temperature inside the chamber (you will need a thermometer for that), instead they just shows what temperature has been set.
Phiestina PH-29BDSP isn’t exactly feature rich but it has dual pane glass door for UV protection, reversible door hinge and blue interior light.
It comes with 5 removable metal wire shelves with beautiful aluminum front bars.
Phiestina PH-29BD is a well made, attractive and effective dual-zone wine cooler for adequate pricing.
