Haier Under Counter Wine Cellar Chosen as “Best Buy” by a Leading Consumer Magazine

-- Undercounter Refrigeration Line Provides Stylish Storage Options --

New York, NY, Feb. 26, 2013 – Haier’s WC200GS wine chiller was chosen as a “Best Buy” and ranked second among under counter units by a leading consumer publication. As the #1 wine cellar brand in the world*, Haier offers a full line of wine cellars as well as a complete under counter solution with a 48 bottle wine cellar, 150 can capacity beverage center, and dual drawer refrigerator.

“Haier is designing home solutions that improve the lives of consumers,” said Chuck Bryant, vice president, sales and marketing, Haier America. “This recognition from industry observers attests to our commitment to delivering high-quality, well-designed products at competitive prices.”

Wine enthusiasts know that proper storage is an investment in the future enjoyment of wine, and consistency is key. A steady temperature not only ensures wine is ready to serve, but protects the investment in a wine collection by maintaining quality and providing the right environment for proper aging.

Convenience is a major factor in how Haier designs products. The WC200GS 48-Bottle dual zone wine cellar is a built-in under counter unit that blends in seamlessly with cabinetry. Naturally, most wine enthusiasts enjoy some reds and some whites, so the flexible divider provides separate temperature zones that can be adjusted as the collection changes. Because UV rays can harm wine, this unit features a see-through Anti-UV glass door that gives wines the protection they need while also showing them off.

Haier’s under counter refrigeration series can be installed together or separately. Each appliance offers its own solution. The DD400RS dual drawer under counter refrigerator is stainless steel inside and out, with 5.4 cu. ft. capacity, two refrigeration drawers and electronic temperature control. The BC100GS 150-Can Beverage Center offers easy touch electronic controls and white LED lighting for simple operation, and beverages are kept neatly compartmentalized with three glass shelves and a basket.
