Supentown International (SPT) is a brand that has been in the market for almost 3 decades. In this period, it has manufactured and sold appliances of different types including the Supentown 20-Bottle Wine Cooler which you are reading about now.
Over the years, SPT has developed and churned a wide range of products into the market. Its range of product includes appliances that are designed for air quality, refrigeration, lighting, dishwashing, and body therapy.
Did we mention that SPT is a house of various brands? Oh, yes it is. And some of the brands include EasyEye, Mr. Induction, FilterMaster, and MagicClean.
All that said, irrespective of whatever you eventually settle for from this brand, SPT promises good value for your money and a good after-sales experience.
Let’s dig in further to find out if this 20-bottle wine cooler lives up to its expectation.
Who Needs the Supentown 20-Bottle Wine Cooler?
20 is a round figure and it may be a suitable number for someone who is building a wine collection for the first time.
The capacity may also be suitable for someone who is in the market for a wine cooler that can cater to a little expansion of an already existing wine collection.
Either way, you can trust that this wine cooler will be home to 20 of your favorite wines.
However, before we get ahead of ourselves, we should mention that this wine cooler is only able to provide storage for 20 wine bottles if they all come as the Bordeaux style bottles. Otherwise, you may not be able to store up to 20 wine bottles in the cooler.
Nonetheless, if you have a couple of the Burgundy style then you may take out the last shelf so that the bottles there (including the larger bottles) can sit at the bottom of the shelf.
As a single zone wine cooler, the Supentown 20-Bottle Wine Cooler has a temperature range of 54 to 66 degrees Fahrenheit. This range makes it suitable for red wines but certainly not for taking white wines like champagne to really cold temperatures. You may want to put this factor into consideration based on what your wine collection will be comprised of.
Also, because of its attractive and elegant design, the Supentown 20-Bottle Wine Cooler makes a good freestanding wine cooler. So, if you need a wine cooler that can be stored in any space in your home, office or bar as a freestanding unit, you can be sure that this one will bring some aesthetic value with it.
Features of the Supentown 20-Bottle Wine Cooler
One of the benefits of having the Supentown 20-Bottle Wine Cooler is that it is true to its storage claims. So, if it says it can store up to 20 bottles, it can.
But the caveat is that the stated storage capacity is for collection with mostly Bordeaux bottles.
However, because the 5 chrome shelves in this unit are removable, one or two Burgundy bottles may still fit in when the user removes the last shelf.
Removing the last shelf will create more space at the bottom of the wine cooler for larger wine bottles to fit in.
Also, the door of the unit is designed in such a way that the middle is farther from the shelves than the rest of the door. So, a user can take advantage of this design feature to place the taller bottles in the middle.
However, with more large bottles in the collection, it becomes more difficult to use up the maximum storage capacity
Also, if you have a mix of sizes in your collection, then you may want to consider alternating the arrangement of your bottles on the shelves with each bottle lying in opposite direction to the bottle beside it.
Meanwhile, there’s no point sweating it with tall champagne bottles because they won’t fit in and their ideal storage temperature is not within this wine cooler’s range anyway.
We will let you in on the temperature range in a bit.
Cooling Efficiency and Noise Level
The Supentown 20-Bottle Wine Cooler has a temperature range of 54 degrees to 66 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it suitable for storing red wines and bringing them to optimum cooling temperatures.
Wines like Riesling and sparkling wines, on the other hand, need to be cooled at lower temperatures. This is to preserve the quality and flavor of the wine.
This is one fact you need to consider before you decide to go with this wine cooler. If your wine collection is comprised of red wines then you may want to consider the wine cooler. Otherwise, you’ll need to count the cost.
Nonetheless, the Supentown 20-Bottle Wine Cooler is precise with temperature ranges and is able to maintain them fairly constantly. It is also able to reach set temperatures in no time.
As with most freestanding units, you need ample clearance all around the wine cooler for optimum cooling efficiency. SPT advises users to allow about 5 inches of space at the sides, top, and back of the unit for this purpose.
We should also let you know that this wine cooler is quite low on energy consumption. This means you get to save a few bucks on the electricity bills. Plus, since it is a thermoelectric wine cooler, you can rest assured that this wine cooler is eco-friendly.
Aha! One last teeny weeny little bit of information: the Supentown 20-Bottle Wine Cooler runs quietly. Okay, this isn’t a little bit of detail but a major one; especially if you can’t stand noisy appliances. So, we hope it’s a relief that this wine cooler is not a noisy lot.
We can tell you for free that the Supentown 20-Bottle Wine Cooler looks better than pictures make it seem. The wine cooler is an elegant unit that will complement existing décor irrespective of the location. So, whether you decide to place it in your kitchen, living room or bedroom, you can rest assured that it will blend in perfectly while adding aesthetic value to your space.
The wine cooler features interior LED lights that provide illumination and make the wine bottles visible as they lie on the shelves.
While we are still on the design of the wine cooler, the unit features user-friendly controls. The controls are sensitive touch buttons that are pretty easy to use. They really don’t need any getting-used-to. They are intuitive.
Apart from the controls on the wine cooler, there’s a temperature display screen that helps the user to monitor the temperature in the wine cooler at every given time.
Also, because this wine cooler is precise with temperatures, you will always be in the know of the temperatures at which your wines are being cooled.
What’s more? Supentown placed a small light in the unit to let users know when they have left the door open. That’s some way to protect your wines and not overwork your wine cooler, don’t you think?
To cap it all up, the black finish of the cabinet and the tinted glass door with black trim makes this wine cooler appealing to the eyes while the reflective touch of the door enhances the aesthetic value of the wine cooler.
One notable feature of the Supentown 20-bottle Wine Cooler is its construction. What we mean is that this wine cooler is well-built. And that includes the shelves, the door, and the cabinet as well as the leveling feet.
So, if you are in the market for a wine cooler that is built to last and will be serving you for a long time, then you may want to consider this wine cooler.

What Users Are Saying about the Supentown 20-Bottle Wine Cooler
The Supentown 20-Bottle Wine Cooler, for a good number of users, is that budget-friendly wine cooler that gives good value for one’s money.
Some users have commented on how they think they are getting more than they paid for. But all that wasn’t without a few complaints that they felt Supentown could have handled better.
For instance, some users wish that the wine cooler could retain temperature settings after a blackout.
Usually, when the wine cooler loses power, irrespective of whatever temperature it was cooling at, the wine cooler reverts to a temperature of 52 degrees Fahrenheit. Now imagine this happening while the user is away on a long trip. There’s no way he or she can tell.
However, some other users have also said that 52 degrees Fahrenheit may not be a bad temperature for wines to cool at. Yet, most want to be sure that their wines are being cooled properly.
That said, the elegant design of this wine cooler, as well as its efficient cooling performance, has made some users ignore the potential drawbacks of this wine cooler. They were pleased to learn that the wine cooler actually looked better than it appeared in the pictures they saw online.
Also, the fact that the wine cooler is true to its capacity, has a light indicator to notify the user when the door is left open and is space-efficient were more reasons for users to appreciate the worth of this wine cooler.
