2.0 out of 5 stars Noisy (and poorly packaged) June 14, 2008
Verified Purchase
I had two problems with this unit.

1) The manufacturer's packaging is inadequate for shipping (not Amazon's fault). I received two units (the second a replacement for the first), both were damaged in transit, and both have been returned. The first, the glass door was shattered, I suspect because the shelves were not well anchored inside (ironically, the manufacturer's handbook warns against shipping with loose shelves - they should take their own advice). The second had a large dent in the door frame - the package is simply not sturdy enough to offer adequate protection.

2) So, if you are lucky enough to get an undamaged one, is it a good product? I tried out the second one I received - might have lived with the dent if I'd been satisfied. I found that although it certainly chills adequately, the fan runs continuously and generates more noise than I would care to live with.

I ultimately wound up buying an equivalent Kenwood unit, which is proving to be excellent - and quiet!

1.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE November 21, 2008
By Neufman
My wife purchased an avanti cooler for my birthday 18 months ago. It was a bit noisy but worked. However, it stopped working so we called because it came with a two year warranty. However, when you call the company they say it isn't under warranty and wish you luck. Then when you call back to point out that they are not being truthful they tell you that will cover the compressor if you go to an authorized repair facility. However, that results in an estimate of $250 to put the free compressor if you take it to them. So save yourself a lot of agrevation and BS and avoid avanti. BEWARE

3.0 out of 5 stars freight issues February 16, 2009
Have used the product before; liked it and ordered another. Came in looking like a forklift had hit it. Had to pay the return shipping, and a month later I still have no product. Had I known this I would have paid a few extra bucks and bought local. I will submit another review/retraction if/when this is ever resolved.

2.0 out of 5 stars broken on arrival December 10, 2009
Verified Purchase
I ordered this for my brother in another state. It was very disappointing to hear from him that it arrived on time but was broken. I'm happy to report that the cooler was replaced very quickly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worked well for two years then died. November 21, 2010
By Dan Tex
Worked well for two years then died. Very good temperature control and sound level when it worked -- even more quiet now. I would not buy another Avanti product because of the poor reliability of this one. I checked the manual and it indicates that if the power doesn't come on to check my circuit breaker. I plugged another wine cooler into the same circuit and it works fine.

1.0 out of 5 stars No longer working after < 2 years October 21, 2010
By Jeff
My wife bought this for my birthday about a couple years ago. It was fine when it was working. However, the cooling function just stopped working recently. The interior light still turns on, so the system is getting power. Tried contacting Avanti for help, but not only were they rude, they couldn't even recommend a service technician. It turns out that the cost of repairing will likely exceed the cost of the unit. I searched online, and it appears that I'm not the only one who has had problems with this (and other) Avanti products. So if you're ok with a disposable appliance, this might be the right product for you. For me, this is the first and last Avanti product I will ever own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wine Coolers Avanti EWC16b May 14, 2010
Verified Purchase
My Avanti works period. It does all its advertised to do in a very quite way. Haven't had the guts yet to try and reverse the door. Note the bottle that goes in the rack in front of the controls has to go in neck first, otherwise you could break the glass in the door.
