Jenn-Air Unveils High-end Under-the-Counter Refrigerators, Wine Cellars


Benton Harbor-based Jenn-Air has unveiled a new collection of under-the-counter refrigeration appliances that include wine cellars and beverage centers, and feature double refrigerator doors and a glass door option.

“We designed our latest collection to elegantly blend into any area of the home,” says Brian Maynard, director of marketing for Jenn-Air. “Whether installed in the kitchen, a media room, or entertaining area, these models deliver elevated design and performance features that consumers expect from a luxury brand.” 

Maynard says the refrigerators, wine cellars, and beverage centers feature a multi-pivot door hinge that allows for a seamless integration of the refrigerator and the cabinets. The collection also has auto-close doors that slowly draw the door to a fully closed position.

The refrigerators have dual zone temperature systems, allowing for the storage of a variety of wines. Two fans, electronic sensors, and an insulated separator help maintain distinct temperatures. The collection features a “Max Cool” option, reducing internal temperatures to the lowest setting for 24 hours to help maintain temperatures during heavy use, and it has an alarm if the door is left open for more than 10 minutes.

All under counter refrigerator models feature four temperature presets including deli, beverage, assorted, and meat. The interior has LED lighting.

The 24-inch wine cellars can store up to 46 bottles with temperature ranges from 42 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperature preset options on the wine cellars include assorted, white wine, champagne, and sweet wine in the upper zone. Presets in the lower zone include red wine, white wine, champagne, and sweet wine.   

Beverage centers hold up to 14 bottles of wine and feature adjustable shelving. Temperature ranges on the beverage centers are 33 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit on the top chamber and 42 to 64 degrees Fahrenheit on the bottom chamber. 

The refrigerators retail for about $2,000, while the beverage centers cost about $2,300 and the wine cellars are priced around $2,600.
