The U-Line 3000 Series is a monster, capable of supplying ample storage capacity in a product built to last. It’s steel construction and stainless steel components stand up to everyday abuse while creating an ultra solid base for the beverage center to operate in.

Picking the Right U-Line

The U-Line beverage centers each feature similar components, with variations of size, weight, and storage space.

For example, the 2000 series is virtually identical to the 1000 series, with the exception of better cooling internals and a stainless steel bezel.

If you are planning on installing a beverage center into your cabinet space, the 1000 is arguably the way to go. As a stand alone, the 2000 will shine.

If you want ample storage space, I would suggest you consider the professional installation of the 3000 series.

It provides ample refrigerated storage space for beer, wine, soda, and other items. Each of the U-Line products is heavy compared to other beverage centers, and this is a product of the heavy metals used in their construction.

This is an extremely durable piece built to last, with the knock on U-Line as a whole being that to some they run loud.

Of course, this can be addressed during installation with sound deadening mats or foam, if you really want to go the whole nine yards.

And if you are in the market for a U-Line, you are already considering the best, so why not entertain the idea?

For my personal money, I prefer the 3000 series. The combination of ample soda and wine space in a convenient, pristine beverage center that matches contemporary appliances is tough to match.

And while the price point is high, this is a purchase you make once, and not something you will need to revisit every few years.

No matter which U-Line beverage center you prefer, you will receive years of value from it. Built to last and built in America, this is the way to go whether it’s for personal or industrial use.
