The probe provides an accurate reading of the temperature of your wine, and this easy-to-use digital control panel makes it simple to change settings.

You will have the following advantages of using a bottle probe.
1) Air temperature in the cabinet may fluctuate, but the wine temperature in the bottle is constant.
2) You can put a cooling unit in a full wine cabinet and show both the air temperature and bottle temperature.

Please allow 2-3 business weeks for production. Thank you.

Note: Extra air filter is not recommended for models of 2500 and below since it may restrict air flow. Instead, cabinet grill is used as a deterrent and protection from dust. However, the filter and frame can be attached to the wall grill and the filter will only cover the air intake portion of the grill.

If there are windows or if the cabinet is not located inside the home at the proper ambient temperature, the bottle coverage capacity and cubic feet will need to be reduced.

Wine~Mate cooling units are available in rear or top exhaust, but Vinotemp cabinets are available in rear, front, top or side vents depending on how the cooling unit is installed.

Top exhaust option is available at an additional charge.

The final result is fine. The new unit is functioning well. The rating is four stars because the time from order to delivery was longer than projected, and we were not kept informed of progress.
