Customer Reviews

This unit required technician reprogramming. It was not holding temperature appropriately when initially received. It seems it was programmed with the old refrigerant settings applied to the controller.

I've had this fridge right at a year now and this is a very good fridge at a great price. It cools down very quickly, it's very quiet, and it is very efficient. I would recommend this to anyone looking a for a good commercial fridge.

This is an awesome reach in refrigerator if you have small space area in the kitchen the temperature indicator in the outside helps a lot to find out the temperature inside the fridge

Small, compact and yet roomy inside. It fits everywhere, even the busiest of the kitchen. The compressor is not noisy at all, barely audible. We are really satisfied with our purchase.

So far so good so I'll give it five stars. It holds temperature well and has a clear thermometer on the outside so you know how your food is being stored.

We had a horrible first experience trying to get a used refrigerator in our shop and eventually ended up ordering this one. After figuring out the digital temperature controller (worth exploring; lots of features that I wouldn't have known about without some research and video-watching), this fridge has kept everything perfectly at our desired temperatures. No more throwing away milk a week after receiving it, or having to wait for it to thaw out. Worth every penny.

Been using this little ditty for a couple years now, and it's been great. If it keeps up, I'm not sure why you'd spend for more expensive brands.

About 4 months in, so far so good. Plug-in-Play. Only thing to keep in mind is that the internal pressure takes about 40 seconds to equalize every time the door is closed, effectively locking the door during that time. Therefor, if you plan on opening and closing the door very frequently, you might want to look into this issue.

For a single door fridge there really is still a lot of space. It is the perfect size for our small kitchen. Looks very sleek.

The Avantco Reach-In Refrigerator works absolutely amazing. It keeps the food incredibly fresh and fits perfectly where we needed it to and doesn't take up space at all.

I'm a busy guy who doesn't often write reviews, but Webstaurant deserves some recognition on this one. Our primary refrigeration for our food truck business was at the end of it's service life (not worth investing in) and had it's compressor give up the ghost right before a weekend of busy service. We ordered this fridge from Webstaurant Plus, and they shipped it from Maryland to NH the next morning at 8 am. The fridge was delivered that afternoon at 2:30. That was the standard shipping through Plus, no additional cost. A+++ for service! Oh, and we're happy with the fridge too. Everyone knows Avantco isn't high end, but it's awesome value for the money!

Pretty nice fridge, lots of room inside. Ours is a bit noisy, and makes a weird bubbly sound when the air gets expelled after you close the door. Like the thermostat on the outside tho.

This refrigerator is surprisingly spaces for the amount of space it takes up. Very durable shelves. We especially enjoyed that the shelves are easily adjustable. It comes ready to operate without any need for adjustments from the factory.

Great value, This is a nice looking Comm.refrigerator that’s very quiet. Employees were impressed and suggested that we get a matching freezer. I must say that the whole process of ordering this unit was a smooth and painless experience, The sales lady was very informative and walked me though the whole Process and the delivery company was great to work with and went the extra mile I didn’t order the white glove delivery service but I feel was if I did.

Great option for the amount of business that I have. Easy to move and with lots of space for small business. The best part is that the motor is on the bottom so you dont kill your back.
