I received this as an anniversary gift from my husband. I also want to mention he picked it up from a high end specialty store and he knew how much I adore my wines. I don't always have adequate time to chill them and usually use an ice cube for a fast chill. That being said, I loved it when I first got it and promptly froze it. I ended up using it the following day to chill room temperature wine. Worked 100% However I kept mine in the freezer when it wasn't in use, as to have it always ready. It busted within a couple of months, inside the freezer. I was really disappointed and didn't look to repurchase as the ice cube method, while liquidy, was less costly and never broke.
