Under Bench Indoor Dual Zone Wine Fridge with 2 x temperature zones designed to give you plenty of options for beverage storage, units have special quiet fans from Noctua (Austria) so they make a nice indoor option. We used quality Vintec wine fridges as our benchmark and purposely developed these to be better with more features and functions.
Mix and match shelves (if you want), wine and flat beer shelves interchange so you could use this as a beer and wine with top at 2ºC and bottom at 15ºC etc., the options are actually endless in this under bench fridge range.
The wine shelving is unique as bottles sit on special 'sliding saddles' allowing sideways movement so you can make neat fit with many different size bottles. Another feature is that shelving can adjust up/down meaning you can alter around to fit fatter bottles etc. Shelving is slide out telescopic style making access easier.

There are many variables that effect power consumption including ambient temperature, door open/close frequency, size of physical load in fridge, position of fridge, the set temperature, the climate and of course the efficiency of the fridges ability to get rid of hot air.
We base these ratings properly on normal operation in tough conditions, in most cases the units will run lower energy consumption than what we state.
*Glass door fridges do not have 'energy star ratings', as they are still classified under an 'outdated' Australian Standard as 'commercial' refrigeration. We expect this to change eventually so energy star ratings can be displayed, because since the renovation boom and alfresco area popularity the market has really embraced glass door refrigeration for domestic use now.
Many retailers and online sellers take the rating the factory tell them as gospel, in actual fact most of these are done is very easy going conditions, like in ambient of 20oC and with fridge set on 8oC, naturally this will use less energy than a unit tested in 38oC with setting on 2oC. It's dissappointing that this area of information isn't regulated properly yet with any standard, it makes the consumer choice harder to make.
Tip - Everyone's perception of noise is different of course, but just think about the location you are placing a unit, and be practicable. Naturally a HIGH rated unit is no good if near bedroom etc.
This chart really help understand, a room with 30Db is a room with nothing going, Db scale is very strange to understand.
