This little dishwasher is great for apartments or kitchens with limited space. It has more capacity than a Frigidaire model that I replace it with and does a great job getting the dishes clean. For a household with two people it is the perfect size.

Be warned that if you buy an Avanti appliance and if it needs service, that it will likely require a long wait for parts. I am still waiting for my new Avanti dishwasher (which was defective out of the box) to become functional. If the required part comes in on its backorder schedule, and if I am lucky, then I will have a working dishwasher more than two months after its first installation in my kitchen. I would not buy an Avanti product again nor would I recommend one to anyone based on my experience. I wish I had not been swayed by the sleek design and low price point. If I had it to do over again, I definitely would have paid the extra $200 to get a more "brand-name" dishwasher from a more "reputable" manufacturer. Then I would be washing my dishes and not staring at the stainless steel rectangle currently taking up space in my kitchen.

I feel that I need to write a review about this company, not that I have been unhappy with the dishwasher but I will NEVER buy anything from Avanti again. My husband and I bought a house that had this dishwasher already installed and fit perfectly into our small home. Our daughter was 2 months old when we moved in, and although this dishwasher was very small considering the amount of bottles and baby items we needed to wash (not to mention our own dishes), we were perfectly happy. One year after we moved in (which would make the dishwasher just a couple of years old) it stopped working, and we had a repair company come out to assess it. There was a valve that needed to be replaced which they would have to order from Avanti... okay, so we waited. And waited. And waited.

Our dishwasher broke in June and it is now September 1 and I have no dishwasher. Avanti sent out the part for the dishwasher twice, which the repair company had given them the part number for off of our dishwasher, and the part that Avanti sent out twice was a part for a refrigerator. They insist that it is the correct part but the repair man (who has been in this business for over 25 years) said the valve just does not fit and it is the wrong part. Each time Avanti sent out the part and was called that it was incorrect, they agreed that it was the wrong part, apologized, and sent out another part... the same wrong part.

Finally I spoke with the owner of the repair company who has been trying for 3 months to get the valve from Avanti, and his final suggestion is to replace the dishwasher and STAY AWAY FROM AVANTI. I must say I agree... I have a 15 month old at this point and feel like my live revolves around washing dishes by hand. I do not mind it as much, but it is very frustrating when I look at a dishwasher that has been wonderful but it's parent company cannot stand behind their own product and cannot send out a simple valve to fix the problem. It also makes me crazy that I now have to look at purchasing an entire dishwasher and throwing this one away, where every other part works just fine... it makes me angry that it is so wasteful.

I would never buy anything from this company again. I think this review is important because it is inevitable that things will break and parts need to be replaced, but if you save money on the front end only to have to replace the entire thing in a few years because you cannot get the part from the company, I would suggest going with a more reliable brand in the first place, it will save you money and aggravation (not to mention hours of your life spent washing dishes by hand).

Purchased this product several years ago and have had service on it every July since it was installed. The latest issue is the timer which I am told takes months that is if they can get the part. Avanti is off the list of products I would buy, take it off of yours!

This dishwasher is a piece of JUNK!!! I bought this and had it installed and it has only been run 10 times or so over the last year and it does not wash the dishes!!! Dishes seem to come out more dirty! Also, mine came with a big dent in the back of it
!

I spent more on this little dishwasher because I have a small kitchen now I wish I would have just made the space for a larger one that would actually work. Now I am stuck with dishwasher in my kitchen that doesn't work. This was such a waste of 422.00! If you want a small dishwasher I DO NOT suggest buying this one.

What makes it even better is that I'm pretty much stuck with it because there is no warranty or customer service.

Don't waste your time or money on this brand!!! It is horrible!

I own several Avanti appliances. They are in apartments I manage. When the Chinese things work, they work fine. But getting parts for them is very difficult. They are only available from Avanti, whose Customer Service people are horrible.

Last week I ordered a part. Spent an hour on hold ordering the part. Called this week to check on part which wasn't received and was told it's back ordered and will be sent in 60 to 120 days.

Is this the kind of service you want?

Forget Avanti. Chinese garbage with Third World customer service.

I never heard of this brand but still want to have a try. And it never works well and now stop working completely. You can't get any worse dishwasher than this.

We have ordered 100's of Avanti products for our apartment buildings and regret it very much. After getting burned on 2 major projects, we are no longer interested in them.

1.)Parts are very hard to get and are forever on back order from China.
2.)The customer staff is very rude and extremely short. It's weird and it's every customer service rep. They just told me they have been in business for 45 years and have a customer service staff of "about 6". There is something definitely wrong there.
3.)Too many appliances broke down too fast. There has been a flaw in every appliance and it's consistent through out each of them.

There are several other companies that offer compact equipment and I suggest going with them.

This dishwasher is a joke. You can't fit normal size dinner plates in it, because it prevents the spray arm from turning. All of the glasses on the top shelf end up with crud inside of them. I should have paid to have my tried and true frigidaire 18" fixed. I absolutely hate this thing.

I love my Avanti!! We were working with a very small space and had a choice between a $1000 Miele, or the $400 Avanti, and we decided to take a chance. We have had it for two years, we have run it twice a day every day and had no problems so far. I would definitely recommend it
