XO refrigeration appliances have always been at the top of the line. With high-end, handcrafted Italian design and a history of innovation behind them, XO appliances should be one of the first options you look at when renovating your kitchen. The newest addition to the suite of XO kitchen appliances is their Black Glass series, which innovates not only in stylish design, but also in efficient function. These black glass kitchen appliances are available as black glass ice makers, black refrigerators, black glass wine coolers, and even black glass beverage centers. Appliances Connection is proud to have this series of wine coolers with black glass for sale. Here are just a few of the reasons why you should consider a beverage center in black glass for your next home appliance purchase. We'll also go over the various benefits of having a black glass beverage center, especially when it comes to protecting your wine and spirits from harmful UV light.
Black Glass: Stylish and Functional
One of the most effective things you can do to preserve your bottled alcoholic beverages is to keep them safe from harmful ultraviolet rays. But that doesn't mean locking them away and out of sight. While many beverage centers and wine coolers do lock your alcoholic beverages away behind an opaque panel, the Black Glass series of appliances uses low-E glass to allow a seamless view into your beverage center. Low-E glass is standard in this line of XO appliances, and is one of the newest, most effective methods of protecting beverages from ultraviolet light. This style of glass has a nearly microscopic, transparent coating that reflects heat and UV light. The reflection of nearly all infrared heat means that your low-E glass appliances are even more efficient than glass appliances without this feature, as well.
Black glass appliances look especially striking in kitchens with white cabinetry, contemporary kitchens, and kitchens with black stainless steel appliances (such as dishwashers).
Can Go Anywhere In Your Home
One of the main priorities when buying a new beverage center or wine cooler is the question of where you are going to put it. Thankfully, each of these black glass refrigerators by XO is an amazingly versatile appliance in any home. You can place them flush with your cabinetry by installing them built-in, or you can reduce your installation costs by opting to treat them as freestanding wine coolers. Many of these models even come with reversible hinges, allowing you to place them in any available space inside your home. With two different handle options as well, you get even more opportunity to customize your refrigeration experience. The designer handles are perfect for kitchens where you want your wine and spirits on display, while the pro style handles are optimized for heavy usage.
Quiet Operation Means Excellent Preservation
XO's collection of black glass refrigerators may be visually quite striking, but in terms of the noise they make, they are incredibly discreet. In fact, they top out at 39 dBA: that's quieter than the background noise level of an average home. This isn't merely a benefit of convenience, but this quiet operation can actually help you preserve your wine. Vibrations are one of the primary causes of wine spoilage: not only do they kick up bits of sediment that may be inside your wine bottle, but the kinetic energy of the vibrations themselves reduces the presence of esters in the wine, as well as tartaric and succinic acids. This can greatly dull the flavor of your wine. A quieter wine cooler produces fewer of these harmful vibrations, leading to enhanced preservation of wine and spirits.
Colorfully Display Your Collection
With XO's Tri-Color Lighting feature, you can choose between three different internal lighting colors for your wine cooler or beverage center. You can choose theater white lighting to show off all your bottles of wine and champagne. The white lighting is also ideal for mid-day operation. The honey amber light is at a wavelength that is ideal for day to day operation: because less of this light penetrates through the glass of your bottles, you can display your collection without causing harmful light damage. Finally, the midnight blue lighting option is ideal for late nights and for long-term storage. Every one of these lighting effects is thanks to light emitting diodes, which reduce the amount of excess heat inside your beverage center or wine cooler.
As a bonus, many of these wine coolers come with a removable display rack that can hold multiple bottles of wine. This lets you show your wine off on your countertop or table, without having to make multiple trips between the display area and your beverage center.
Efficient Air Circulation
Proper humidity and air flow are two more critical factors when storing alcoholic beverages. Wine in particular needs light ventilation and an even distribution of air in order to breathe properly. Thankfully, many XO refrigerators come with XActive Circulation technology, which quietly, effortlessly keeps the air flowing inside your refrigerator or XO wine cooler. Meanwhile, this same air circulation technology keeps cold drafts away from your drinks.
Not only are XO wine coolers at the top of the line when it comes to air circulation, the activated carbon air filters inside each XO refrigerator unit prevent odor transfers and cross-contamination. This means a much lower chance of corking in your wine.
Create Perfect Conditions for Water or Wine
Regardless of what you're storing in your XO refrigerator, you want the storage conditions to be consistent and perfectly customized. This beverage center's French door design allows for that and more: you can keep one half of the refrigerator cavity chilled and unexposed to warm air while you grab beverages from the other side. Meanwhile, it can hold up to 21 bottles and 49 cans, which is more than enough for many families' beverage needs. The electronic controls are intuitive and easy to master, and they allow you to store your beverages at temperatures as low as 34° F or as high as 50° F.
If you have an extensive collection of wine, you want to keep it secure and safe. This means preventing young children in particular from having access to it. Thankfully, each of these XO coolers and beverage centers has a lock hidden in their heavy-duty stainless steel toe. The XO refrigeration models with French doors are particularly unique in their methods of secure operation: you can lock either of the doors individually, or both of them at once. This means that you can put wine in one half and non-alcoholic beverages in the other, granting your children free access to the drinks they love while keeping your wine and champagne safe.
