NutriChef PKTEWC Thermoelectric Wine Cooler
Silver NutriChef PKTEWC is a premium thermoelectric chilling single zone wine cooler that is offered in three different sizes of 18, 12 and 8 bottle capacities: PKTEWC180, PKTEWC120, and PKTEWC80. These are single zone wine coolers that let you store your white and red bottles in one place at the optimal temperatures with the very precise thermoelectric coolers.
You will adjust the temperature between 50 to 64 degrees Fahrenheit (10 – 18 degrees Celsius) through the digital touch-button LED Temp Control Display triangular plus and minus touch buttons. It shows the temperature in both Fahrenheit and Celsius right in the middle, with the F/C converter just to its left, and the light button to turn on and off the internal LED lights on the very left.
All three models are made of engineered thermoplastic ABS, have compact, sleek and modern designs that make them suitable for use in kitchen, office, home or living rooms. You’ll be storing your whites and reds on the stylishly polished chrome wine racks that slide out easily. It also includes a vertical shelf which works great with the storing of open bottles.
The fridge cools all your bottles evenly thanks to the integrated circulation fan and the ventilation grill at the rear. Your wine will stay fresh, tasty and crisp in the long-run with the Precision Thermoelectric Cooling System that also makes sure the cooler runs very quietly, making as little noise as possible. The airtight glass door seal ensures your white and red bottles are sealed in properly and the transparent glass lets you view the contents of the fridge clearly.
