GE's Wine Vault chills without a cellar

Marc Perton

If you can't bear to wait nearly 30 years for GE's "kitchen of the future" to show up (and we can't help but wonder whether our perishables can last that long), the company is showcasing some technology that's available today. Top of the list is the GE Monogram Wine Vault, a complete 8x8x8-ft storage environment that has an internal cooling system set for 55 degrees, the ability to hold up to 1,100 bottles on redwood racks and a touch-screen inventory management system that builds a database of your bottles via a touch-screen scanner. It'll set you back a cool $35,000. We're not sure whether that includes installation, but if you have to ask you're probably not in the market for this.
