Embracing a bottle with elegant ease, the dramatic wine holder features a spiral stepped rim, like you're journeying up a spiral staircase toward unknown delights.
Thanks to the excellent thermal properties of the metal, the thick-walled chiller can be placed in the freezer before use, or in the oven if you plan to serve your sake hot at the table. Your favorite bottle of white wine or champagne stays cool and crisp when served in our dramatic spiral Wine Chiller.
Chill Test: In August 2008, we conducted a test through an independent lab to compare how long wine stayed chilled when held in the Tilt Wine Chiller vs. no chiller. Two identical bottles of wine were cooled at 41 degrees F. for 24 hours and then subjected to an ambient temperature of 75 degrees F., one placed in the Tilt Wine Chiller. The bottle with no chiller reached room temperature in 2.58 hours, while the bottle in the chiller stayed cooler three times longer--not reaching room temperature for 8.16 hours.
As with all Nambe metal pieces, function stands beside beauty in purpose. The proprietary eight-metal aluminum-based alloy has the luster of silver and the solidity of iron. It can be preheated to 500 degrees or chilled in the freezer; this coupled with its superior temperature retention properties makes Nambe Alloy markedly useful for cooking and serving. Nambe Alloy does not contain silver or lead and therefore does not tarnish; it won't chip, crack, or break.
Namb? Alloy retains temperature for extended periods of time, so prior to use, you can chill or warm your Namb? Alloy pieces to hold food at a desired temperature
Chills wine bottles quickly and keeps them cold for hours without ice
Each Namb? piece goes through a series of shaping, grinding, buffing, and polishing steps; slight imperfections found on Namb?'s brilliant finish are characteristic of the sand casting process
Since Namb? is hand-crafted, no two pieces are exactly alike
Frequent use will result in a natural patina; many Namb? aficionados appreciate and encourage this patina, however luster can be restored by applying a small amount of Namb? Polish with a soft cloth
