DO NOT BUY! We ordered it for our child care center and once we plugged it in the temperature started going up. We let it run for a few hours and the temperature went up to 100 degrees! We checked the manual and reset the temperature but nothing was working to cooling it down. We called the company and they told us that this was warranty work and would send it someone out. It took 2 weeks before someone could come look at it and our center was not allowed to open because of this. We could not operate our commercial kitchen. The repairman fixed the fridge for short time but once again after 2 weeks the temperature went up again and the same company was sent to fix it! He refilled the Freon and said there is a leak somewhere but he does not believe he will be able to get to it. We have had to throw away so much food and close our kitchen because of this horrible refrigerator. We are waiting for another repairman to come back and attempt to fix our BRAND NEW broken refrigerator!! Definitely do not buy this!!! Read Less Read More

We were so excited to be able to purchase this high end item! Only, no one tested it before it shipped to discover it didn't function. And then when it was discovered that it didn't function (purchased that warranty for extra $$$) WE HAD TO DISPOSE OF IT ($$$). And because we moved in those few weeks back into our renovated facility, they didn't replace it- just gave us a "credit" to the website.

This refrigerator stopped working at exactly 23 months. The cooling mechanism is toast and is leaking all over the floor. I'm very frustrated. One day it worked and the next day it was 100% dead. Most of the cheaper brands are not worth the effort or money. You will easily spend the same amount in repairs--IF you can find someone to repair it and/or the parts. I could buy a piece of junk refrigerator that would perform better. I'm not a happy camper. I'm not even sure the warranty is any good because of the ten-million clauses and part numbers that do not match anything related to the product you will (or should not) purchase.

This refrigerator has been a huge disappointment. Only two years old and it has completely stopped cooling. Have spent thousands of dollars at Webstaurant and they hide behind their company line, how disappointing!! DO NOT waste your money on this product.

This Avantco Refrigerator is a little noisy. It doesn't hold temperature very well. When I open the door for just a brief few seconds, it looses temp of 5-10 degrees and takes a long period of time to recover.

This is the best commercial refrigerator we have every had. The temp is a contant temp and we absolutely love having it in our new commercial kitchen

We purchased this for our small coffee shop to store milk and sandwich making supplies. So far, it has been a great fridge, keeping temperatures well and easily cleaned when we have spills. We purchased an additional shelf to give us some extra space. The on/off switch was damaged during delivery when we improperly gauged the width of our entry door, but it was a simply matter of ordering a new switch and replacing the old one. We didn't have any trouble finding the extra shelving or the replacement part on Websteraunt's site.

BIG refrigerator. Holds almost 900lb of chicken. We jam both of our refrigerators to the max and the temperature stays constant. Easy to move on casters to clean and stays cool during service hours.

it i a very roomy fridge. For the price, I feel it is a great purchase. It is stainless steal so it's definitely a restaurant color. I hope it lasts since it was a very inexpensive option.

This unit is very well made and holds a very constant temperature and it is quick to return back to the set temperature. It has plenty of room inside and is the perfect size for small spaces.

We purchased 3 of these units. They are very spacious and you can store quite a bit in these units. They also do not consume a lot of electricity. We have had no issues with the temperature controls or the units maintaining proper temperature. There was a small dent in one of the doors. Most of the doors need to be slightly opened for the locks to engage. Also, these units will not fit through a standard size door. You will need to remove the wheels. The shelves are adjustable but it wasn’t an easy task. Overall, we are very satisfied!

Great reach-in refrigerator! Easy to clean (made of stainless steel and with casters), it is very big and the doors are self closing! Inside there are two lights and the best part for me is that I can lock the doors. I had to put the refrigerator next to the dining area of my restaurant, and to do so, I needed locks!

This has been a great larger fridge! We open and close this so much every day that we wore a seal out, but we were able to order a new seal with Webstaurant and it was an easy fix. It has tons of space and cools down quickly.

Great working units for over a year. I bought two of them for my restaurant and they are working great. Both units keep my inventory fresh and chilled, the temperatures are very stable.

Sounds like a small refrigerator, but let the size fool you. It's perfect for a small kitchen and can hold a lot of food. The shelves are adjustable to fit your needs and the doors open wide and stay open making it easy to remove stuff or to refill with new groceries.

This item arrived quick. For the price is not that bad, but as soon as I received it it wasn't cooling. It always stayed in 40 F degrees so I called the warranty company and they "fixed it". Still every time you open this door, it looses 2-3 F degrees just by opening. Again, for the price I think its reasonable.

This thing is a ticking time bomb, it wasn't even two years old and it almost caused a complete structural fire. Think twice before buying cheap refrigeration equipment.

This refrigerator was nice while it lasted but like every Avantco refrigerator we've bought, it lasted less than three years and then quit. It is not repairable and no longer under warranty. We are moving on to different brands now. This is a frustrating product.

from Mango latino grill on

Best deal out there for a refrigerator of this size. We have been using this refrigerator for over a year and a half and would buy another one in a heartbeat. Super reliable and sturdy construction. Quality fridge and will save you a ton of money over other brands or buying from another vendor. Highly recommend!

Gets very cold and keeps food fresh nice size and easy to move looks great in restaurant very good choice of items would recommend to

from 219 Main St on

I bought this product less than 2 years ago, and it is nothing but problems now that it's out of warranty. It won't keep temperature, and has cost me more in lost sales than the price of the unit. Spend double, buy American made that still uses R134a. The propane refrigerant doesn't get it done.

This refrigerator has served us well for the last several months. We love the easy to read temperature monitor. This refrigerator quickly recovers after the door has been left open for a while.

This refrigerator receives a ton of compliments from guests who rent the event space it's in. Its large-capacity is perfect for caterers or items that guests bring from home, and there's ample space for many items between beverages and food. The 54" wide capacity and double-doors make it really easy for larger platters and party trays guests or caterers would use for bigger parties. The casters make it really easy to move and allow for easy cleaning behind the appliance, too. It's nice that it also comes with a key if needed. Overall, very happy with the value and price, too.

from The Meeting Point on

We’ve purchased many Avantco brand products in the last and have always been happy with them. We were on a super tight budget for our new store and this worked out perfectly. It’s quite large, and we had a bit of trouble getting it through our front door, but now that it’s in and installed we’re very happy with this fridge.

from SUSU Dessert Bar on

This refrigerator doesn't work at all ever since I turned it on!!! The temperature was 100+ and never came down. Webstaurant don't allow me to exchange or return and ask me to contact the warranty company. I was exhausted to deal with the CSG. Because we had another seldom used reach-in freezers with brand" Avantco" is still not working after back and forth contacting warranty company. It has been delayed for almost 4 months. Seriously affecting our business operation. I 'm a buyer for our retail chain stores and restaurants and I was a loyal customer of Webstaurant. I'm not sure I can trust the Webstaurant anymore.

I absolutely love this refrigerator.... although it is not good to keep items in that you do not want to get damp such as cakes etc. There is a ton of room inside to keep cold items it is not to loud ... overall I love this refrigerator

Received with a little damage to back corner with shipping, but was quickly compensated for damage. This fridge does the trick. It has a lot of space and keeps cold. We have had no issues with it.

The fact that this is on wheels is the first win. It is a simple fridge without the bells and whistles, which is great for us starting out in the restaurant business.

from JULIA KARA on

If you don't have space for a walk in then this unit is your best bet. Its large and shiny and looks pleasing and despite the small footprint it holds an incredibly large amount of stock. The shelf brackets on both sides of my fridge were installed upside down but otherwise zero cons

from Cherry Market on

This was used for the quick access items in our catering business help temp even with the constant open and shut. Lots of room shelves hold a lot of weight without buckling :;

This reach in fridge fits perfectly behind the line of our operation. Its extremely spacious, it comes with six racks, and it is on wheels. So far we have had no issues with cooling and temperature. Calibrating the temperature is very simple and so are all the instructions in the handbook. Also delivery was a breeze!

The Avantco Reach in refrigerator is a very heavy duty quality with a nice sleek stainless look to it. I just received it but I’m sure it’ll be a great addition to my small bakery

We previously had walk in coolers in our kitchen. They were nothing but trouble, always had maintenance issues, so we decided to go with these refrigerators. They are great! They take up a lot less space and fit our needs perfectly! We are very happy with them!

This fridge is okay. We use it as a back up and I wouldn't trust it with our day to day milk and food. It isn't very quite but it was cheap and looks good.

from David rio on

I absolutely LOVE my refrigerator This item was a excellent purchase. it stores a lot an the digital feature is accurate. I would recommend and I would buy a large one once I get into a larger space.

from Sweet Treats Delight on

We were looking for a good freezer for at hoe use for our garage. We needed it for meet we get during hunting season, and it is wonderful. it doesn't hike up our electric bill. it holds a lot of meat and it is sleek looking as well. also the temperature is easy to control and maintains the same temperature well.

this fridge is great for a resturant. it has a lot of storage and keeps things cold. but when you open the door and shut it, it has to seal again before u can open it again

Do not buy this piece of junk!! Made vibrating noise when first plugged in 2 months ago. Then made gurgling sounds and now holds a temp at 50 degrees. Customer service is almost non-existent. Buy something A LOT better then this fridge or you will lose lots of money in food spoilage and loss of sales. Big disappointment!!
