John Lewis Side by Side Wine Cooler Fridge

I’ve seen this mentioned on a few websites now and I remembered I was going to post about it after I saw it in delicious. magazine.  What a beauty!

John Lewis Side by Side Wine Cooler Fridge

The John Lewis Side by Side Wine Cooler Fridge is a normal “American Style” fridge with a twist, a 39 bottle Wine Cooler. What a fantastic idea.

This stylish side-by-side John Lewis fridge freezer combines a wine cooler with fridge, providing perfect storage conditions for a wide variety of fresh and frozen foods and drinks. The elegant design features stainless-steel doors and sides, with a special anti-fingermark finish.

The wine cooler has a glass window and halogen interior light providing an excellent internal view; the special tempered K-glass protects the wine and drinks from infrared and ultraviolet rays. The large capacity provides storage for up to 39 bottles and the inclinable wooden shelves allow wine to be stored in its optimum condition.

Super cooling air circulation in the fridge ensures better food preservation with a constant and even temperature. There are 6 easy-clean glass shelves, including a split shelf for flexible storage options and 3 adjustable full-width door shelves. The covered dairy compartment keeps your cheeses in optimum condition, while the extra large pull-out salad and vegetable drawer glides easily out on runners.

The frost-free freezer section has 4 removable transparent drawers for easy loading and unloading. There’s also a ‘quick-freeze’ facility to ensure any freshly-added food is frozen quickly to retain its quality.

Free of CFC gases, the fridge is environmentally sound, with ‘A+’ rating for energy consumption.

I was thinking all this fridge was lacking was an ice maker/water dispenser but I saw in the details that it said:

Note: as this appliance needs connecting to a water supply we recommend installation by a qualified plumber. The appliance needs to be placed no more than 2 metres away from the water supply.

Is this for an ice maker/water dispenser? I assume so. I can’t see one inside though. If anyone from John Lewis is reading this I’d appreciate a comment to let me know.
