Spotted in the wild this week was two different units from U-Line’s much anticipated 3000 Series launch. The first looks like either an final version or late prototype of the 3018RF. This is the 18″ wide built-in food storage unit, complete with three large, removable (yay!), food storage bins, an integrated OLED display and controls on top of the door, and the ability to hold temp anywhere 34F – 70F.
New european style hinges that open within their own space are added as well, making the door swing radius a bit more palatable as well. This really does look like a unique and promising offering from U-Line and my sources tell me the price will be palatable as well. Coming in just around $2,700 USD.
The second unit in the pictures looks like the new 36″ U-Line 3036BVWC Beverage/Wine Center. This is to be a dual zone unit, again with the ability to hold temp any where between 34F and 70F. Argon gas filled thermopane glass door and the same concealed hinges with built-in door stop.
I would expect this unit to be popular as well, with the pricing (supposedly) coming in the mid three thousand dollar range. The U-Line 3000 Series products are expected to hit stores sometime in September/2011.
