Danby 3.7 Cu.Ft Bottle Silhouette Wine Cooler DWC1534BLS

Will Larger Wine Bottles Fit?

Technically, larger wine bottles will fit once a rack is removed, however not all wine bottles fit in nicely.  Champagnes in particular don’t fit quite as well as those of the most common wine bottle “Bordeaux”.

I guess you just have to be more creative in finding ways on how to arrange your wine bottles neatly into your wine cooler. Don’t worry when removing the racks as they slide off easily and they come with stops.

Can its feet be adjusted to fit into tight under counters?

Yes, this wine cooler has leveling legs which you can adjust to fit into your under counter.  If you have issues on opening its door inside tight spaces, have your wine cooler sit an inch outside the counter. This should allow you to swing its door open effortlessly.

How Cool?

It does however possess an auto cycle defrost system that makes it a bit easier to maintain.

Does it have an LED light?

No, it only comes with an incandescent bulb.

Is this unit thermoelectric?

No, it uses a compressor.

My View

Due to its minimal features and simplistic design, this model is among the most affordable wine coolers available on the market.  It is still attractive and does a great job but if you are after better automation, LED lighting, noise dampening or extra capacity, this may not be the unit for you.

If you are after a very good budget conscious unit that does it’s job well without the bells and whistles, then this is excellent value for money, see for yourself here.

Are the shelves adjustable?

No the shelves are not adjustable but they are removable. You can take the shelves out to accommodate bigger bottles of wine.

Are the racks flat or scalloped?

They are flat so you can keep five bottles across.

Can this unit be enclosed in a cabinet or used built-in?

No, this unit is for freestanding application only. It needs fresh air and plenty of space to breath.

Is it quiet?

It does make a rattling sound once the compressor starts but it only lasts for a few seconds. It is typical to an appliance that runs on compressor to make some noise; it depends on the users’ threshold if they find it bothersome or not.

Does this unit run on compressor or thermoelectric?

It is cooled by a compressor, thus not as quiet as thermoelectric units.

Can this unit be used for sodas and beer?

Yes and no.

Yes you can keep them but I don’t think your beers will get cold enough using this model.  Also, this unit is a single zoned temperature model.

You cannot keep different types of beverages under one temperature, since their temperature requirements varies.

Wines are delicate beverage, they need specific temperature to mature and maintain its structure. If you are to keep everything inside, get a dual zoned temperature wine fridge, better yet a beverage center.  This way you get to store everything without compromising your beverages’ taste and structure.

For units that are specifically designed to cool sodas and beer, see below under the heading “Beverage Centers”.

Can you turn off the Blue Light?

Yes, there’s a switch you can flip on and off.

My View

The DWC93BLSDB is the next step up from the DWC350BLPA and not much more expensive. Extra features include the LED lighting and UV protection glass over the DWC350BPLA so temperature control and UV control are well with the extra.

It comes with 1 year warranty on parts and labor via home service. For current pricing and great offers on this unit click here.

Is it quiet?

It does make some noise; some find it bothersome while others don’t. If you are too sensitive when it comes to the sound of compressors and fans, then go for models that are thermoelectric or those that are soundproofed such as Eurocave’s INOA.

How Cool?

Like most Danby Wine Coolers, DWC508BLS has a temperature range of 39.2oF to 64.4oF. This model, however has a single zoned temperature compartment that allows to you keep only one type of wine at a time.

It comes with an 18 month warranty on parts and labor but you have the option to take up Danby’s 3 or 4 year home appliance protection service for extra cost.  For more details on this great product click here.

My View

If you own a very extensive number of beverages such as sodas and beer and a relatively few bottles of wine, then this model is yours to keep. This is a great option for a refrigerator that you can use specifically for your refreshments, other than loading it all up inside your regular kitchen fridge.

However, if you own more than 11 bottles of wine or if you’re someone who drinks wine regularly then perhaps you should get a beverage center with more wine capacity than this model. Better yet get a wine cooler.

You can find this model usually priced at around mid range. Prices nay vary dependending upon its availability and promotional offers.

My View

Now if you love beer more than wine then this unit is a perfect choice. Like DBC514BLS it houses more beverage than wine. They are somehow similar with regards to its features and appearance, with this model being a little bigger at 5.6 cubic feet. This model however comes with an alarm, that’s definitely a plus.

With regards to its wine capacity it is relatively few, it can only accommodate 6 bottles of wine, barely enough should you host a party or a special gathering. That being said this unit is the best choice for beer drinkers, but not so much for wine enthusiasts.

What others say about Danby Wine Coolers

Danby Wine Coolers are indeed a great alternative to the more expensive brands of wine coolers available in the market today and they have a very good following.

They are relatively more affordable yet function as well as the higher-end competition, such as the Eurocave Wine Coolers.

However, like other products it too has its own issues that need to be resolved.

As I was doing my research on Danby Wine Coolers, I bumped into several complaints about its cooling ability.

A number of owners have been complaining that their units are not cooling properly.

Some were even left disappointed that their wine coolers have ceased working after two years of use.

While I can only bring to you what I have found, there has been no real solution put forward to addressing some people’s concerns.  Is there a quality issue or just some faulty production items?

Most people are very happy with their Danby Wine Coolers, therefore they represent a great product and great value.  Warranties range from 1 to 10 years, so you have a very good level of protection against faulty units.

Final Word

Danby Wine Coolers are indeed a great alternative to the more expensive high-end wine cooler brands, such as Eurocave. You get the benefits of having a highly efficient wine storage system without having to spend more than you can afford.

To make the most out of your Danby Wine Cooling Units, find the model that best suits your needs and your home setting.

I hope I have in some small way made your choice easier for you.
