WIE JC-82 28-Bottle Compressor Wine Cooler Review
WIE JC-82 (also known as WIE WIWCJC28BADX-US) is compressor cooled wine cooler that can hold up to 28 bottles of wine. It allows you to adjust chamber temperature from 41°F to 64°F (5°C to 18°C).
For the most part WIE JC-82 works well but there can be some nuances. It usually doesn’t have issues to cool down to the coldest temperature setting of 41 degrees Fahrenheit but if placed in warm place it might be able to only go as low as 43°F to 45°F.
Temperature control for the most part is accurate and consistent. However occasionally you might notice that top of the chamber slightly differs in temperature compared to the bottom. It might also not happen at all.
Overall WIE JC-82 works well especially considering it’s quite inexpensive for the storage capacity it offers. It also only makes noise when compressor occasionally kicks in, but even then it’s not loud at all.
So WIE JC-82 can hold up to 28 bottles of wine but getting that many in get be a bit difficult as it’s a tight squeeze. Actual capacity also depends on the size of bottles, the bigger they are the fewer will fit.
WIE JC-82 is equipped with simple to use digital controls. It features LCD display that shows set temperature and 4 buttons: two of them are for adjusting temperature, then there’s one for blue ambient light inside and another one for switching between Celsius and Fahrenheit scales.
WIE JC-82 features soft blue LED ambient/interior light, UV-resistant double-paned glass door, removable shelves and automatic defrost function.
Size and weight
WIE JC-82 weighs 49.6 pounds (22.5 kg) and measures 16.9 inches wide, 17.7 inches wide and 33.1 inches high. Because it doesn’t have front vent it should only be used as freestanding appliance and never be built-in.
WIE JC-82 is not a wine cooler for an expensive wine collection worth thousands of dollars but it’s a good wine cooler for regular wine bottles. It’s not a perfect wine cooler but for the money it’s a pretty good one!
