still waiting for it to work...
on December 11, 2009
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.
