LAS VEGAS -- Haier's no-compressor wine cabinet has become the brightest star at the 2015 International CES (International Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas. Solid-state refrigerating wine cabinet, magnetic refrigerating wine cabinet and smart Wine-cool are three types of no-compressor wine cabinets on display. The three wine cabinets have overturned the traditional design concept that has been the basis of compressor refrigerating technology since the emergence of electrical refrigerating appliances.
Red wine is very picky about its storage environment; subtle vibrations or temperature changes can affect the taste. On Haier's open interactive platform, the world's top-level red wine aficionados said most wine cabinets vibrate excessively when operating, compromising the quality of the red wine stored within. Red wine enthusiasts have advocated on Twitter, Facebook and other social media channels for non-vibrating no-noise wine cabinets.
Demand for storage space akin to red wine cellars has found first-rate resources on Haier's open interactive platform. As a case in point, a Silicon Valley partner communicated with end-users on Haier's interactive platform and offered them a solution using CO2 and H2O as a refrigerant to replace traditional compressors. A field test confirmed there is no vibration at all when the cabinet is running.
The wine cabinet has not a single moving part, delivering a perfect no-vibration no-noise storage environment for red wine and satisfying demand for a "wine-cellar experience." Haier is also exhibiting the world's first magnetic-refrigerating wine cabinet, an energy-saving, environmentally–friendly and quiet storage device. It can drop the temperature by as much as 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit) in a short time. With its small size and innovative refrigerating method, "the smallest cabinet of all time" Wine-Cool has attracted much attention from show visitors. The Wine-Cool is small enough for red wine lovers to take their favorite libation with them even on the move.
The Haier executive manning the booth at the show explained that the "no compressor" design concept will be applied to other refrigerating appliances, signaling that the day is near when noisy household appliances will become a thing of the past. According to the latest data, with a market share of 18%, the Haier wine cabinet, for the fifth time that the data has been released, has proven to be the most popular brand in world markets.
