How to choose the best wine cooler

Do you know how to choose the best wine cooler? Some tips for you.

1.Constant temperature

Temperature is one of the critical factors in storing wine, and it is equally important to maintain temperature stability. The composition of the wine will be affected by the temperature change, and the cork will also expand and contract with the temperature change, especially the poor long-term cork. Most wine cabinets are equipped with a heater or PTC that raises the internal temperature to maintain temperature stability regardless of changes in ambient temperature. The air inside the cabinet is also protected by a built-in fan to ensure uniformity and consistency of temperature distribution at different locations within the wine cabinet.

2. Various types of wine storage reference temperature

  • Semi-sweet, sweet red wine 14-16 ° C
  • dry red wine 16-22 ° C
  • semi-dry red wine 16-18 ° C
  • dry white wine 8-10 ° C
  • semi-dry white wine 8-12 ° C
  • semi-sweet, sweet White wine 10-12 ° C
  •  champagne sparkling wine 6-9 ° C

3.Avoid vibration

Frequent vibrations can interfere with the stability of wine sediments. Precipitates naturally occur with the storage time of the wine but maybe re-returned to a liquid state due to vibration and suppressed. In addition, vibration can also destroy the structural components of the wine. The high-tech silent shock absorber compressor refrigeration system inside the wine cabinet is equipped with an anti-vibration rubber gasket. The temperature control is more precise, and there is no condensation, and the famous wine is carefully protected.

4.keep humidity

Relative humidity of 65% is the best environment for long-term storage. However, it is also good to keep the relative humidity between 55% and 80%. If the humidity is low, the air will enter the bottle through the dried cork to oxidize the wine, and the wine will also penetrate the cork; if the humidity is high, the odor will be generated, and the label will be damaged.

5.Ultraviolet light

UV damage to organic compounds can make wine premature or aging, especially tannins, which mainly affect the aroma, taste and structure of the wine so that it tastes or smells like garlic or wet wool; therefore, the wine is best stored in no light. Places, especially for expensive wines, pay attention to avoiding sunlight, especially lighting because these two lights contain particular harmful light waves below 400mm. However, our white LED lights are not only lighting equipment, but because they do not provide ultraviolet light waves, they are the best choice for many wine lovers. Another advantage is that they do not conduct heat to affect the temperature of the wine.

6.Air circulation

In a humid environment, the flow of air is mainly to prevent the growth of bacteria. The infiltrated cork is prone to harmful odors, and the strong smell penetrates the cork to change the original quality of the wine. The fan inside the box absorbs the fresh air and evenly evacuates the air to prevent bacterial growth.

7.Cleaning of the wine cooler:

 For safety, unplug the power cord before cleaning.

  •  Do not use alcohol, boiling water, washing powder, or acid to clean the wine cabinet. Do not damage the refrigeration circuit.
  • Need to use a soft cloth or sponge when cleaning the wine cabinet, water or soap non-corrosive neutral cleaning agent can be. After cleaning, wipe with a dry cloth to prevent rust.
  •  Do not rinse the wine cabinet with water when cleaning; do not use a hard brush or steel wire to clean the wine cabinet.

Maintenance of the wine cooler:

  • Change the activated carbon filter of the vent hole above the wine cabinet every six months.
  •  Clean the dust on the metal mesh on the back of the condenser wine cabinet every two years.
  •  Replace the shelf every one to two years to prevent the safety of the wine from the deformation of the solid wood shelf under high humidity.
  •  Please carefully check whether the plug has been pulled out before moving or cleaning the wine cabinet.
  •  Thoroughly clean the wine cabinet once a year, please pull out the plug before cleaning, and empty the wine cabinet, then gently scrub the cabinet with water.
  •  Do not apply heavy pressure inside and outside the wine cabinet, do not place heating appliances and heavy objects on the top of the wine cabinet.
