Avanti Wine Cooler Reviews

The 30-Second Review Wine coolers aren’t for storing wine forever. They’re for getting it ready to drink. We talked to four wine experts, tested fridge temperatures, and drank our fair share of chilled rosés, all to find a good looking wine cooler with buttons that worked, could accommodate temperatures from 45–65 degrees, and didn’t develop freezer burn. 151 Contenders → 2 Top Picks Best Single-Zone Wine Enthusiast Silent 8-Bottle Touchscreen Wine Refrigerator Straight forward, single zone cooling with intuitive controls that nailed our temperature tests. Best Dual-Zone Sunpentown Dual-Zone Thermo-Electric Wine Cooler with Heating Two compartments separated by a seal inside the door — this is dual zone taken seriously. Are there California Pinots littering your countertops? A crate of whites stashed under the stairs? Wine has four arch enemies — heat, vibration, light, and humidity — and your bad storage habits exposes it to them all. The best wine cooler will protect your collection and easily keep all types of wine (and bottles of all shapes and sizes) at the right serving temperature. We researched hundreds of models before choosing the Wine Enthusiast Silent 8-Bottle Touchscreen and the Sunpentown Dual-Zone Thermo-Electric as our favorites. “Light can quickly raise the temperature and ‘cook’ a wine,” Metropolitan Market Wine, Beer & Spirits Specialist Mark Takagi explains. “The most common storage mistakes leave wine vulnerable, like racks on top of kitchen countertops that are exposed to sunlight, under-cabinet lighting, and stove and oven heat, plus vibrations from frequent foot traffic. Storing wine on top of refrigerators is another big one: Not only does heat from the room rise; the fridge also vents a lot.” You don’t have to be a cork-sniffing connoisseur to appreciate that cooking your wine is a bad idea — but even if you prefer Two Buck Chuck to high-end tipple, your wine will taste better served at the right temperature.

Tom of Brookhaven, GA on Aug. 30, 2016Satisfaction RatingI bought the Avanti 160 bottle WCR682SS-1 wine cooler from a floor model distributor and have had nothing but trouble. After the purchase, I ordered some of the larger Burgundy shelves and a replacement charcoal filter directly from Avanti. Avanti sent the wrong parts on both occasions. I still have not received the correct shelving after 3.5 weeks and 5 phone calls. Then, unit’s compressor stopped working this week. I called Avanti and they referred me to their GA authorized repair shop. The repairman was able to come out in about a week and told me that it was best that I ship the unit back to the place where I bought it which I have done. I have subsequently bought a different large wine cooler from Costco. It should ship this week and I hope that I get a better result.Helpful?YesNo

Ana of Port Charlotte, FL on Nov. 19, 2016Satisfaction RatingSince I always have my wine selection in the right temperature I would say that they are Highly efficient. Depending on the wine I can place them in three different shelves. They have the right temperature. If you care about your wine I would recommend my Avanti Koldfront has enough room and is very affordable. Looks very nice in my Florida room. So far I have had no problems with my Avanti Koldfront. I truly recommend you have a surge protector, not only for the appliance but to protect your wines. Avanti has many options from the more affordable to the connoisseurs type. They are a really good choice. You don’t have to spend a million to have a great wine cooler.Helpful?YesNo

The implications spill over into things like how much electricity your wine cooler uses and how quickly it cools your wines and maintains the optimal cooling temperature. All of these considerations seem to have been thoroughly pondered by Avanti manufacturers. If it’s quick cooling you want and you couldn’t be bothered by how much electricity your cooler consumes, or perhaps if you just want your countertop cooler to be as quiet as possible, Avanti’s design and planning team has taken all the hassle out of it. The final choice is yours, but Avanti offers some great coolers to choose from.

Proper functionality leaves nothing to be desired too because Avanti wine coolers are practical in every sense of the term. Your wines will be kept ready for you to just reach in and serve, which is ideal if you’re a regular entertainer. Avanti also has some wine coolers which offer huge capacity. Compactness and easy integration remain synonymous with any Avanti wine cooler, however, even if you require a bigger one such as their 166 bottles compression-cooled unit.

The alluring world of wine collection, tasting, drinking and general enthusiasm ultimately comes down to how the wine tastes when it hits your palate. While that optimal taste is mostly driven by personal preference and perhaps factors like where you source your wine and how much it costs, your wine is only as good as how close remains to its original state. This is determined by how you store your wine. The Avanti Wine Cooler reviews featured below will give you a good head-start and point you in the right direction to optimally store your wines.

Jasmine of Carlsbad, CA on Nov. 3, 2016Satisfaction RatingThey allow you to customize how many wine bottles you want to be able to store and cool. The features of this wine cooler work great. So far I have been very happy with them and have had no problems with how they work and function. I have had this brand wine cooler for a few months but you can tell just by looking at it that it is of great quality. I can trust that this brand will be with me for years and years. The value of this wine cooler is totally worth it. You get a great built wine cooler with the functions that you expect from a more pricier item.Helpful?YesNo

Pvcy of New Jersey, NJ on May 5, 2012Satisfaction RatingI purchased 72 beverage coolers from Avanti and gave them the specifications of our cabinets. We were assured that the unit they suggested would work for our purposes. None of them get cold enough – most don’t work at all. I sent back two that were hot and were told we weren’t supposed to put them in cabinets (despite the fact they sold it to us knowing that was what we needed). Less than a year later, they will not replace the non-working units and offered no compensation. They demand payment by check for large purposes for just this reason. They don’t want charge backs. Do not purchase from Avanti products. They will rip you off, lie to get a sale and then not honor their product warranty. Avanti sells defective merchandise and then lies to make a sale.Helpful?YesNo
