How to install at 300mm wide wine cooler?
Regardless of height or depth, 300mm (30cm) wide wine coolers, designed for under-counter use are actually 29.5cm in width to allow for air circulation around the unit. During your search for a wine cooler you have probably noticed that some are labelled ‘freestanding’ and some are labelled ‘built-in’. Freestanding units should not be built in to kitchen carpentry as they need 2-3 inches of space around them to vent, without this the unit would overheat. However, all the units listed here can operate as under-counter/built in 300mm wine fridges or freestanding wine fridges for those who have a small gap allocated to wine storage outside of the kitchen setting.

Can I use a 300mm built in wine cooler for wine storage?
