So far, a decent refrigerator. Sleek looking, sturdy, and at a decent price. We really appreciate the slim depth design. Unfortunately, the factory packing design is so terrible it makes us regret our decision. For one, it came completely encased in wood, with the casters locked into the boards. There was no screws or nail-heads, so the only way to dissasamble the boards are to pry it off. The boards are also bolted to the unit itself. Unfortunately, the employee who was working in the factory completely ignored the faulty solder job on one of the interior nuts that one of the bolts was on. It came barely on, but could not be removed. After two hours of work, we were able to cut break apart the wood, but still leaving the bolt there. The brand new machine was taken apart, only to find that in order to access the broken solder joint, the entire compressor and coil system would need to be removed. We caused mor damage to our floors, new machine, and selves than we could ever gain with this refrigerator. Feels like a total loss. Poor response from the Webstaurant store as well. Not that anything could have been done instantly, but I have spent over $20,000 in the past month on this website, I could use a little more than “understanding.” Very frustrating phone call to deal with while an immobile machine is in the middle of a kitchen, but a “claim” process needs to be started. The machine wasn’t damaged, just permanently bolted to a pallet. Since we couldn’t remove the bolt, we had to remove the pallet! Overall, an absolute nightmare that stemmed from a poor packing design as well as a damaged bolt that completely wrecked our entire day. The bolt will forever mislodged underneath our unit...

the best refrigerator in the game! Whether you’re storing meat, seafood, salad, or ingredients for your most popular recipes, the Avantco A-19R-HC is perfect for your small restaurant, cafe, or bakery. This unit has a spacious cabinet with multiple adjustable shelves, but it's still small enough to fit in places where larger units would not.

Does not keep temperature. Its set at 38.7, it goes all the way up to 46 sometimes before the compressor kicks on. The ambient room temperature is normally below 70 with plenty of room for ventilation. I called after a week and a week later, im still waiting to hear back from Webstaurantstore about the tech that they are supposed to schedule to come fix this.

Received this today, and its completely unusable. The compressor has to constantly run because the temperature goes from 38, to 44 within 5-10 minutes. The compressor is also making a ridiculously loud sound when running. Will be requesting a full refund in the morning. We would be better off with a residential fridge.

This fridge is wildly inconsistent and constantly needs upkeep and maintenance. It has massive temperature swings +30 degrees at any given moment. Typically I will have to remove everything from the fridge and unplug it for several hours or 24 hours. It has never lasted more than 4 to 5 days in a row working.

The compressor does not run often enough, causing huge temperature swings. Internal temp will hover at 45-50 before starting cooling cycle, and it takes a long time to cool down. Digital thermometer reads incorrectly, saying temp is 38 when it is really 42. This fridge would have caused us to fail our health inspection if it wasn't just holding produce.

After careful upkeep (good clearance from walls and other units, and monthly coil maintenance) in a temperature controlled commercial kitchen, this fridge failed after 15 months. It is now leaking refrigerant inside the system AND has busted evaporator coil. $500 for the parts I now need (to which I said to Avantco - NO THANKS!!) , and nearly $500.00 spent already in diagnostics. $300 to safely dispose of it now too. Nothing this expensive should fail after this amount of time. I will never buy Avantco again.

We have a few of these. Some of the components need to be tightened over time as it will rattle when kicks on, but they are solid and worth the cheap cost. Warranty on compressor is great.

from Secret spot on

This was my first major purchase for my new business, and I've been happy so far. It was a bit of a pain to release it from the packaging. But I was able to plan for it given the other reviews that I read.

from Home Run Espresso on

Purchase this online on 7/29/2019. It was delivered in August 2019. IT stopped cooling last week. The compressor is bad and company won't repair because they say it is out out warrant. How is it out of warranty when it has only been 12 months. I would give it negative stars if I could.

When we purchased this fridge in 2017 it worked fine, like you'd expect. Fast forward just a measly three years and the fridge leaked refrigerant. We spent $500 repairing that and now the compressor is out, which will cost another $500 in labor to replace. The compressor itself is covered under warranty, but a business should not have to spend this much money repairing a 3 year old refrigerator that cost about the same to purchase new. It is possible that this is a one-off, but based on our experience, we do NOT recommend this refrigerator

This cooler has worked great for us. The perfect size, my only complaint is the door can be hard to re-open if it closes and you need right back in there.

from Rebel Cupcake on

A perfect sized fridge for small businesses! It is great for storing cakes and ingredients, I love that you can remove shelves to make room for storing multi-tiered cakes!

Awesome! Automatic temperature control and easy to clean. Just plug it in. Easy to move and operate. Save yourself money and buy this as this works as good as the more expensive ones. Highly recommend!!

from Alpha Dogs 187 LLC on

Nice small standup refrigerator works as planned only issue we are having is the seal on the door it’s so tight but when you go to open the door the entire color moves even with the wheels like the light inside is Not very bright I do wish I would’ve got the one with the LED light inside other than that works as to be expected

from Meyers landing bar & grill on

I love Avantco! It holds temp, rolls out for easy cleaning up, and I have plenty of space for all my supplies for my little shop!

from Kubinski, LLC on

The Avantco Solid Door Reach In Refigerator is so fabulous! The look is industrial, and it looks great! I cannot believe the space in there! We can fit so many essential items in there, and it's easy to locate them and keep them organized! This was a great asset to us!

from METRO360 LLC on

Super roomy reach in refrigerator. I love it and it keeps food really cold. I personally like to take the shelves out of it and replace them with the speed rack style shelving!

Nice, space saving design for our small food prep area. This fridge is VERY unstable. Our fridge leans away from the wall and tips forward when the door is pulled open.

i like the refrigerator. but it is very loud. if you have a small kitchen this will store everything you need. i also like the digital thermometer .

from 9 cafe on

The epoxy shelves are really nice looking and easy to clean. I like the easy to read thermostat on the front and easy on off switch.

Easy to clean the inside. Outside is not as easy to clean. Digital temp is a nice feature. I wish it came with one more shelf.

from Poke Box on

Ordered this for a client, came in well packed and not dented. We had to wait to install as the remodel wasn't finished but wanted the equipment before we were finished in case something happened. Start up went great and the owner likes this product. Has been in use in a Classroom for close to a year now.

from R.L. Vollintine Construction, on

Great size! True to description. We like the fact that it has a lock system set in place. Runs efficiently! I have owned it for a few months.

from Fit and Trim Nutrition on

Not a big fan of this for one reason in particular. The suction to open the door is quite difficult to open. Its a hit or miss. Can be a bit embarrassing in front of customers when you attempt to open it and you don't look "strong" enough. Some times we wait, other times we have to hold the entire unit still to pull the door open.

I enjoy this product because it a perfect fit for the small preparation area i own. It allows me to store all my merchandise and keep it fresh.

from Bahama Craves on

This refrigerator has worked great. Our food stays at the proper temperatures and the food print of the unit is quite small. Definitely worth the price.

from Maryland Zoo in Baltimore on
