Inexpensive yet fairly decent

T. Youngs, Amazon
15 December 2014
  • Summary: We've had the wine cooler for the last seven years. While it has a temperature dial, I've only ever needed the lowest setting as that makes the reds still too cold. The wine cooler is decent enough for the price. Over the last year it's has started to rattle quite a lot.

Does the trick

Ondreus, Amazon
17 September 2014
  • Summary: Works well no complaints so far, however, the order page shows a legacy mode number (which is what I wanted) and instead I got the newer model. The new one doesn't fit bottles as well as the old model. Some slots have to be turned bottle neck in. Ah well. It chills wine.

I must have lucked out, But some TIPS!

D. R. Norris "Cowgirl n Indian", Amazon
1 September 2013
  • Summary: I know that AVANTI and other thermoelectric coolers due failures. SOME TIPS: 1) Keep thermoelectric in a place that is cool and out of sunlight. They usually only do 30 degrees below room temp and you could burn it out in a hot place. 2) It is a chiller, so the temp is around 51-62 degrees.

Didn't last a year!

Paul S., Amazon
20 December 2012
  • Summary: Priced right, looks nice, but doesn't last! It's strictly a "throw away" because too hard to find anyone to fix them and if you did it would cost more then buying a new unit. Pay a little more and buy a brand with a better warranty.

Product received damaged, company would not replace

Lisa, Amazon
27 July 2011
  • Summary: This was purchased as a wedding gift, and was shipped directly to their home. The recipients did not get a chance to open the box until after the wedding and honeymoon. Once it was opened, it was discovered that there was a dent in the unit, and that once plugged in it made a very loud noise like...

Stopped working

Amanda Farris, Amazon
3 February 2011
  • Summary: We were happy with this wine fridge until it abruptly stopped 18 months after we bought it. The problem is electrical - I assume a faulty circuit board. I have contacted Avanti customer service three times with no response, and after reading the other negative reviews here, I don't have much...

Worked well for two years then died.

Dan Tex, Amazon
21 November 2010
  • Summary: 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.

Noisy (and poorly packaged)

Douglas Whittet "Byrdmanic", Amazon
21 October 2010
  • Summary: 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.

No longer working after < 2 years

Jeff, Amazon
21 October 2010
  • Summary: 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.

Wine Coolers Avanti EWC16b

Martin S. Rothenberg "Thud105g", Amazon
14 May 2010
  • Summary: 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.
