    Choosing the Right GE Appliances Wine Chiller

    Sure, the $1,300 GE Monogram Stainless Steel Wine Chiller is beautiful and your wine bottles would sure look nice while staying perfectly chilled, but do you really need a 57 bottle capacity wine chiller? Before you start spending your savings, go over the following checklist to help you decipher between what you want and what you need.
  • Size - If you don't drink that much wine and only have a few bottles chilling, at the ready, go for a smaller sized wine chiller. It will take up less space and use less energy.
  • Space - If you drink a lot of wine ("a lot" of course, being purely subjective) and hold many bottles of wine at one time, a large wine chiller is perfect for you. Just make sure that you have enough space in the room in which your beautiful new wine chiller will reside, to accommodate your new purchase.
  • Energy - As with all new appliances, you have to be sure that your circuit breaker can handle the addition of a new appliance.

Final Thoughts

For the occasional wine drinker, a single bottle electronic wine chiller is ideal. They are compact, easy to use and quickly chill a bottle of wine, often in a matter of mere minutes. Single bottle electric wine chillers are also far less expensive than the larger floor models. If this does not describe you, here are a few final thoughts you should keep in mind before making a final decision:

  • Shop around - Many online store channels like Yahoo Shopping offer deeper discounts then your traditional retail stores. Watch out for high shipping fees though, they can quickly offset any price savings.
  • Choose quality over quantity - For appliances, name brands matter and GE is a giant in the world of appliances. Well known appliance manufacturers are more likely to honor warranties without hassle, allow you to return your product if you are unhappy and the product is more likely to last longer then a lesser-known appliance company. So, the moral of the story here is, choose a smaller wine chiller from a name brand appliance manufacturer rather then a larger wine chiller from a little known or off brand appliance manufacturer.

Whatever brand wine chiller you decide to buy, if you think your purchase through carefully before actually buying it, conduct a little product research either by asking around or browsing the Internet, you will be happy with your wine chiller for years to come.
