Summary: Used it for over a month now. Whole family love the hot water dispenser in these winter months. It feels sturdy and good quality. Not sure why some complain the unit is too short. The dispenser faucets (tabs) are 31" off the floor. Got the 5-gallon water bottle from Walmart for $11.50 with water. But use tap water since as our town water is drinkable.
Excerpt: While the quality and taste of the water will depend on the water you purchase, the unit heats and cools it exceptionally. It has made coffee and cocoa an easy breakfast favorite, and Kool-Aid, iced tea mixes a cold drink quick-fix. The unit was easy to set up and the instructions for first use very specific. The units base was perfectly level and quite sturdy and setting up the 5 gallon water jug was simple. Overall, an exceptional value.
Pros: Clean Taste, Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Heats And Cools Water
Summary: Our old dispenser died and we missed it immediately. Everyone in our house used it. Cold water to drink and hot for soups, coffee and tea. We went to WalMart on line and found one we liked. The price was reasonable and we bought it. We chose to have it shipped to our local store so we did not have to pay shipping. It arrived sooner than stated. Easy to pick and install. Everyone in this home is glad to have it in our kitchen.
Summary: Product was missing a part. Then Malfunctioned. Specifically: the right side if the height adjust stand was missing. Avant customer service is sending a replacement. The hot water does not work :-( However, it is just what I want IF I can get an Avanti hot/cold water dispenser that functions properly.
Summary: Does not include the plastic part that goes inside the top to push the plastic cap out of the top of the bottle when you put the water bottle on top. You have to do it yourself and you end up spilling water all over. Needs to be redesigned so you just turn the bottle over and set it down on the water dispenser.
