" I was looking for 15" beverage and wine coolers that have reversable doors so I could place them side by side in a 30" space. It looks good and cools well. It has some fan noise but not really a problem. "

" This is a good product. I was a little disappointed in brightness of the interior light and with the light controls (not easy to turn-on the interior light ). "

Great value, small footprint, one FYI
Posted:2/3/11
Pros: appearance features value footprint
Cons: fan constantly cycling on and off, shallow bottom shelf
" This beverage center was the only one that fit our space (15" wide) and our budget. It is reasonably priced, looks attractive both installed or free standing and has flexible glass shelving. Although the front vent was dented when it arrived, AJ Madison was great in sending us a replacement ASAP.
We've found two things that you may want to be aware of before ordering: 1) the fan cycles on and off every 5-10 seconds. Avanti says that it isn't the compressor just the fan and it is normal. That's okay for a larger space but be aware of the added noise if you're buying it for a bedroom or small apartment.
2) the bottom level isn't full depth. We wanted a full shelf for mixers and one for beer, water, soda. Our mixers shelf is positioned on the next rung up from the bottom which doesn't leave quite enough room above it for a shelf where beer bottles can stand upright. It is the only one that fits our space, so we're adapting. All in all though, a good value and we're thankful we found something to fit our space. "

Can't beat the price!
Posted:10/7/10
Pros: price and ease of installation
Cons: wish the temperature reading light could be dimmed
" I was looking for a beverage cooler for the space vacated by a crummy old trash compactor and priced out a few at appliance stores -- all of them were OVER $1000 (in one case, one unit was $1600!). Stumbled upon this site while doing a Web search, as I couldn't believe there didn't exist any affordable models, and SUCCESS! This fit the space, matches my other KitchenAid appliances well, fits the purpose for which it was purchased and last, but not least, didn't break the bank! "

Great Everything
Posted:8/2/10
Pros: looka great and runs quietly
Cons: none so far that we are aware of.
" The beverage cooler was exactly what we were looking for. We got it as a part of our kitchen re-model and it fit our new built in space perfectly. We have plugged it in and let it run and it is quiet, cools great. The order was delivered just as promised and at a price that seemed to beat just about everybody else. "
