Got the first one, broke after 4 months (1 month storage, 3 months of usage). Webstaurant great customer service replace that one. Had the second one for another 3 months and just nozzle broke again last night. Will go to other brand for this.

We bought this percolator in hopes of finding a more durable mid size coffee maker to use moderately (we make 100 cups a day). We have Hamilton Beach ones that usually last us about 6 months with no issues, then they start dripping. We used this percolator for 1 week and it has already started dripping A LOT! We are already throwing it away. Save yourself the headache and get the hamilton beach ones. This is not for moderate use.

Sharp looking stainless steel urn that brews good tasting coffee fairly quickly. The basket that holds the coffee is a fine mesh that doesn't allow the grounds to fall through like others I've used.

Susie B. from Jackson County School Board on 03/14/2020

We got one of these to have hot water at our farmers market stand for hot chocolate. It heats super fast and works like a charm. One of the best equipment pieces we’ve have.

Katie P. from SUSU Dessert Bar on 01/19/2020

I really like this coffee urn. I use it primarily for hot water, but it works great for coffee as well. Easy to set up, and easy to clean.

Troy M. from Troy Mclean on 11/30/2018

We just purchased this to replace our previous one. I love the new upgrade. the filter basket is much nicer and it pours out much faster. More efficiency. I will buy more.

Dieu L. from Donut Drop Llc on 09/18/2018

The Avantco 55 cup coffee urn is great for smaller gatherings and works great. The urn is easy to clean and the stainless build helps it last for multiple years. The urn does a great job keeping the contents hot and the dispenser works great.

Lisa H. from Oak Ridge Planation on 09/04/2018

This coffee urn has a great look for any office. It's 55 cup capacity is just perfect for us. Easy to clean inside and out.

Carla T. from AMERMEX FROZEN PRD on 07/09/2018

Working great so far. I bought this to donate to my mosque for hot tea or coffee before the meetings. Good quality and good price.

Naseer A. from The Boardroom Restaurant on 05/07/2018

This urn is fantastic for the first 6 months, but with all of commercial uses it makes it really hard to keep it in good condition

Tsm J. from Town Square Market on 03/17/2018

BAD URN this start leaking and cannot be fixed.. It's a piece of garbage, do your research and buy something better because this urn is worthless.

Abraham R. on 01/01/2018

Awesome! and a great price too. Shipping was fast and free we will be ordering more for the schools and for the teachers lounges. We appreciate the fast shipping.

Herman H. from In-Stock Supply Inc on 10/26/2017

We purchased this for brunch as we needed a cost effective way to do a reasonable amount of volume. Maybe not as good as high end brew systems but coffee comes out rich, stays hot and isn't burned. We have had issue with beans being ground wrong and coffee comes out like water but that's not the fault of the percolator. Just be aware that it's not super forgiving in that way.

Dominic M. from Queen Bee Restos LLC on 07/07/2017

Very nice stainless steel urn, brews quickly and makes hot, clean tasting coffee. Easy to wash and to set up. Looks nice when used as a self-service device.

Cathy N. from Sheboygan South High Sch on 05/31/2017

Had this for 6 months and 5 days and the faucet nozzle stopped working. Just outside the 6 month warranty period. Convenient. We noticed if we only fill it half way, it works well to heat up the water as well as maintaining the temperature great. The more water that its filled with, it takes much, much longer as well as issues with retaining heat.

Jack on 05/07/2017

This product was very cheap, and thus very attractive for our small business. However, they have below industry standard warranties, and of the 5 coffee urns from Avantco that either our business, our sister business, or my church group purchased, all failed in a matter of months. The ones that failed within the warranty were replaced by ones that failed as well. Webstaurant has excellent customer service, but Avantco was rude over the phone and dismissive of my concerns over the short life expectancy of their products. When I tried to reset the machines, they worked for another couple weeks, and then failed after being plugged in. Avantco refused to consider any reimbursement for their product, and I would suggest that you reconsider if you are trying to save money by purchasing their equipment. Unless you plan on using it only a couple times for a couple months, it's going to waste your money.

Saxon M. from Town Square Market on 12/04/2016

John T. from Cliffmart LLC on 11/03/2016

Wonder Avantco 55 cup stainless steel coffee urn. Well made and will last us a long time. Perfect for large gatherings and events. Awesome price.

Russell H. from Russ' Sub Shack on 10/27/2016

We were in the market for a new coffee maker. I did a lot of shopping around, and this was the best buy and the best product available. This stainless steel urn makes delicious coffee, shows how many cups are available, and is easy to dispense. I recommend this to anyone.
