Under-counter wine coolers are probably the most chic way to add a wine fridge to your kitchen. Inherently built-in under your kitchen counter they generally look sober yet classy, often using brushed stainless, amber glass doors, seamless handles and chrome trimmings

This list catalogs under-counter models in a variety of styles and form factors: Some are as narrow as 10-inch wide, to fit kitchens cabinets already cluttered by the dishwasher and the kitchen range, while others smartly separate white and red wines with french doors that give them a stylish boost. And, of course, some models make it a point to ostensibly display your most extravagant bottles using special inclined shelves.

All the under-the-counter models shown here are shorter than 36 inches so they can be built-in under standard kitchen counters, but at least 31-inch high. to look like a right fit. They must also feature front ventilation and be described by their manufacturer as made for built-in use.

GE PCR06BATSS

GE PCR06BATSS under-counter wine cooler

Based on a number of the 74 reviews we have scanned, the GE PCR06BATSS under-counter Wine Fridge seems to be a model that's virtually infallible in getting its designated job done (cooling a mix of wine bottles and other beverages, that is) -- but with a few minor design flaws that have knocked a star off its otherwise-immaculate rating. One particular reviewer pointed out that this wine cooler's door magnets are not as strong as he would like it to be, and complained about having to diligently ensure that the doors are properly shut each time. Another buyer hoped that GE would've thrown in a lock option.

One more issue that popped up was that bigger wine bottles had difficulty fitting into the shelves. However, perhaps sacrificing one of these obviously more spacious soda-can shelves for bigger wine bottles (What's wrong with more wine anyway?) could afford big-bottle hoarders some leeway.

In spite of these above-mentioned protests, the PCR06BATSS collects praises for being "very quiet" and for doing a great job at keeping wine and beverages cold. Not to mention, its 24-inch-wide body flaunts a clean-looking sleek look, which should guarantee it a pretty-sizable chance of aesthetically fitting into most modern kitchens. The spill-proof glass shelves should also come in handy for messy situations.

This 4.5-star wine cooler is not without its own shortcomings, but it can surely get the job done.

French-door models are rare, but this one lets you store up to 20 bottles per zone, giving it one of the lowest capacities among built-in under-counter wine fridges that are roughly 24-inch wide. We assume that to be the trade off that comes with the convenience of having two zones, each with its own door.
