The very cool Father's Day gift hiding in my basement (nobody tell Dave)
Dave's getting something he always wanted for Father's Day. It is not a Lamborghini, a boys' trip to Vegas or a month of me not pestering him to fix stuff around house. It's a wine cooler, which he's always wanted. So I was thrilled to get a NewAir AW-181E Bottle Thermoelectric Wine Cooler to check out.
I've put it in the basement in the laundry area, which means there's zero chance Dave will discover it until the big reveal on Father's Day. I'm planning to keep it in our dining area; the design is sleek, with a stainless steel exterior and LED lights inside, so it's the sort of appliance you want to display.
As compact as it is (29 inches high), there's room for 18 bottles of wine. You can reconfigure the five removable, sliding racks to fit your needs; if you turn them over, they can fit larger bottles. The door is insulated, and there are simple push-button digital temperature controls. What it lacks: a compressor. This is thermoelectric cooling, and it's quiet and vibration-free. You can set the temperature from 54 to 66.
Just for a joke, you could fill one up with juice boxes and tell your husband you've bought a juice box cooler.
Enter to win one for your partner!
