The beautiful French Doors are manufactured with high quality dual-pane low-e argon-filled glass doors. A premium quality 304-grade stainless steel is used for the seamless door frame. The interior and sides are finished in classic black.
This beverage cooler represents innovation and elegance that we are accustomed to see in Zephyr products.
Note: The low-emissivity (low-e) coating helps to minimize UV and infrared light that pass through the glass door.
Capacity. This Zephyr Presrv™ unit has a total capacity of 5.15 cubic feet with two compartments:
- On the left, there are 6 full-extension wooden racks with stainless steel trim. It has a capacity to store 21-bottle of standard Bordeaux size wine bottles.
- One the right, there are 3 slide-out grey glass shelves. It can accommodate 64 12-oz cans of beverage.
Wooden shelving on the left (wine): This Zephyr has six black wood racks with stainless steel trim. These high-density black wooden shelves are strong and they have moisture repellence property.
These racks are full-extension shelves for easy access to your wine bottles.
You can store a total of 21 standard Bordeaux-size wine bottles on these six racks.
Tip: If you need to pull shelves out of the rail compartment, you want to make sure the door is open at a minimum 90 degrees. Why? Because you don’t want to damage the door or the door gasket.
Glass shelving on the right (beverage): These are slide-out glass shelves – made with beautiful transparent-gray glass with air flow openings.
You can store 18-can on each shelf to give you 54 cans, plus another 10-can capacity in the bottom section – total of 64 cans.
We installed this unit at a design project in Tiburon. The owners use this chamber (right) to store beers at the perfect temperature of 38° F.
Door Handles. This Zephyr dual zone comes with a pair of contemporary style door handles.
Tip: to install these round towel bars properly:
- Locate the designated holes for the door handle – by pushing aside the door gasket on each side.
- Install the handle tightly on each side with the two included screws, lock washers and flat-washers.
Lock. This wine and beverage fridge does not have a lock. From a design perspective, the absent of a lock element is on-point for a seamless surface.
Warranty. This expensive Zephyr wine and beverage cooler comes with an impressive warranty of 5 years compressor, 2-year parts and 1 year labor.
Features and Functions
Dual temperature zones: This Zephyr fridge has a PreciseTemp™ compressor-base cooling technology and an impressive vibration dampening system.
This model has two individual-controlled cooling zones:
- On the wine compartment (left), it has a temperature range of 38°-65° F.
- On the beverage compartment (right), it has a temperature range of 34°-65° F.
- This model shares the perfect score rating with our featured Allavino FlexCount series for the most quiet compressor-based wine cooler – whisper quiet at 38 dBA (sound decibels perceived by our human ear), and
- It also shares the highest rating with our featured Kalamera built-in series for most consistent temperature cooling retention with near zero fluctuation.
Control and Alarm. You can manage the settings using the Electronic Capacitive Touch Controls.
Check out these impressive alarm and control features:
Door Alarm: This feature helps you to close the door when you accidentally left it open for more than 3 minutes.
Sabbath mode: This is an excellent option to observe restrictions on the use of your beverage appliance during Sabbath and Judaism holidays.
- To turn Sabbath mode on, press the Power icon and simultaneously press the Temperature Increase icon twice.
- You will see the interior light and the electronic display go dark.
- The cooler maintains the internal temperature while Sabbath mode is active.
- To turn the Sabbath mode off, you press the Power icon again, and the Temperature Up icon twice at the same time.
PreciseTemp™: This is a Zephyr trade-mark precision technology that uses multiple internal sensors to maintain super accurate temperatures.
Active Cooling Technology: An on-board computer controls active cooling fans to provide temperature stability and even cooling.
Air Filtration System: A built-in carbon filter is a natural barrier to protect your wines against undesirable odors. Tip: If this unit is installed in your kitchen, it is best to replace the carbon filter every quarter. If it is housed in a space with minimum exposure to odor, it is fine to change the filter every 6 months then.
Vibration Dampening System: Less vibration helps to minimize disturbance to your wine.
Interior Lighting. It is wonderful to have options to illuminate your vintage collection. This Zephyr model has a 3-Color LED Lighting available in:
- Cloud white,
- Deep blue,
- Golden amber.
Before your first use, allow the fridge to stand upright for 24 hours. Why? Because the cooling components will function better if you allow time for them to settle after transit.
- The carbon filter should be replaced every quarter. The filter part number for this model is ZOF-C004.
- For exterior cleaning, use a mixture of two tablespoons of baking soda to one quart of lukewarm water. Use a soft sponge. Dry with a soft cloth – you don’t want water spots.
- For interior cleaning, it’s a good practice to disconnect power to the fridge. Remove all wine bottles and shelves. Use a clean cloth to wipe down the interior. Re-insert the shelves. Re-stock your wines. Re-connect power to unit.
- Do not touch the power plug when your hands are wet.
