This arrives tomorrow. Finally, a much better use for the guest bedroom than guests.

:fuckyeah:

I need one of these.

The wife was :notsure: last year and talked me into a ~40 bottle two zone unit. Really wish I would have went for a larger unit like this since all I care about are reds.

I definitely need your feedback on this one after you set it up.
It is my belief that I am getting the Costco version of this http://www.wineenthusiast.com/n-finity- ... cellar.asp, which is $2699 at WE.
We have an undercounter unit that will now be used for white/champagne. I got a bit of an eyeroll for throwing down on this but resistance has turned into enthusiasm.
It will allow me to buy by the case when prices are good and then not worry about storage during the summer. Ain't no basements in the desert.

Oooo. I bought a big ass Napoleon grill last summer. All aluminum cook box, stainless steel cabinet, infrared side burner up to 1800 degrees, infrared rotisserie....

This ain't no Home Depot special.

I need a new bbq this summer. I want something compact that gets evenly hot and zero frills. I should start checking for :dill: s now!

I've got a doozy of a day tomorrow morning ripping into the godzilla of robots and about 30 of the bolts are M16x115 and on an awekward angle. Finally invested in one of these, and angled and very compact ratchet with 1/2" driver. Image

I bought the 3/8" version of that viewtopic.php?p=214680#p214680

It's not bad, but could use a bit more torque. Hopefully the 1/2 version is better for you.

Napoleon makes some great grills. I think they just came our with some newer smaller grills but most of their stuff is larger, it was at least. More features than Weber.

Worth checking out. Pretty happy with mine.

I am not sure, but when i took a quick glance at the 3/8 it might have said 30 lb-ft. Either way I still need to break bolts loose and use a torque wrench to get them snugged back up. Hopefully :thisisfine:

I love Milwaukee's M12 stuff. I end up using my M12 drill/driver more than my M18 fuel.

Next purchase is the M12 die grinder

Weber is obviously the staple/pinnacle of charing meat but it also comes with a heavy price tag so I want to get to know the products available before buying one. Thanks for the heads up on Napoleon

This is my concern too. I get 12 bottles from Grgich per quarter as it is, then add anything else I buy and I'm in a panic to drink before a shipment arrives.
Image

Set up, filled to 2/3 capacity

The highs:

1. Seems well constructed, glass door is heavy/solid.
2. VERY quiet.
3. Works as advertised, all vino resting at 54 degrees
4. Easily reversible door
5. Top shelf is double size for big bottles
6. Puts off little heat out the front vent when running

The lows:

1. The "light" is a joke, blue LEDs shining down from top, purely decorative.
2. The rated capacity is for "thin" bottles. A lot of wine comes in thicker, wider than minimum size bottles that will take up more space, NBD.

Obviously, the real question is "how long will it last?" It has a 2 year warranty, which is a good start. It's Chinese, so the the compressor isn't made by Aryans in the Ruhr Valley.

It's a nice product and it's great to pull wine out at the right temp. Things like temp, aeration, and a decent glass can go a long way in maximizing the value of even inexpensive wine.

Awesome, thanks.

The highs outweigh the lows for sure, I don't mind the light issue or the capacity, I expected that from the one I have. I have a few bottles that need to be "massaged" into the fridge I have now by lifting the shelf above it.

This is an inverter compressor unit that runs quiet and doesn't "spring" on and off, right?

I can't recommend Napoleon enough. I got the prestige pro 500. Stainless steal grill grates are a must. I wanted infrared side burner too.

:impressive: about 1k less than Weber for the same features.

I can't figure out where they are made besides "North America" so I am guessing Mexico?
