Comments:We chose this unit as we read that the shelves were sturdy and that it could work well across a wider ambient temperature range (in a heated and cooled garage). We have just received it and got it filled. So this is premature but...

Delivery was easy, it was on a wood pallet in a bomb proof cardboard crate. Delivery was on time. We only wanted it in a garage area so there was no challenge for moving it into place.

The feet of the unit are easy to screw in and out to make it level.The 2 handles provided were nice and easily installed.

The interior is of excellent quality, the shelves do not sag one millimeter when full -- a problem with a Marvel unit we currently have. There are several different shelf heights to accommodate differing bottle diameters. Since we are storing mostly California Cabs this really isn't a huge issue.

The only issue I can see so far is that the lock isnt very sturdy and is located on the bottom of the door. It will basically keep out curious folks or children/teens.

Overall this is an excellent unit so far. If there are any issues with the temperature we will update
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
I'm very happy with my purchase!

Comments:I did a lot of research and bought the FlexCount Dual Zone wine refrigerators based on both the price point and the positive ratings I read on the internet.

I've only had the units for a week, but so far I'm extremely pleased.

Positives: Very attractive unit. The drawer storage is (for the most part) brilliant. The controls are intuitive and easy to use. The refrigerator plugs into a standard outlet and (according to my electrician) draws very little power. My entire wine collection fit into the coolers and I can access any bottle I want at any time with relative ease. Special shelves for champagne bottles are perfect.

Negatives: A couple of bottle styles don't store easily. For example, long skinny bottles with high shoulders don't "nest" properly so you can only use the front row. Fat stubby bottles may interfere with the drawers' ability to open and close easily. The drawers don't open all the way so you can't easily read the labels on bottles in the back row.

Be prepared, the units are quite heavy. I rented an appliance dolly and moved them into the basement myself. At some point physics took over and the 310 pound refrigerator nearly pulled the 190 man down an entire flight of stairs. This is a 2 person job even with the appliance dolly, which I highly recommend.

I did buy the 3 year warranty -- hopefully I won't have to use it.

On balance, I think this has been a GREAT purchase!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Comments:This good looking unit is full and maintaining the temp as advertised. The flexible racking worked great for a mix of Cab and Pinot Noir bottles.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Works as Advertised
by:Henry (03-03-2016)
Reedville, VA
Comments:This unit works as advertised and doesn't brake the bank. I love the fact that you can store just about any size of bottle type inside this refrigerator, which is a problem with many other manufactures. I don't store much more than 100 or so bottles at a time, so it works really well for me. I just recently received the unit, so I can't comment on how it will perform over the long term, but so far, so good. I did buy the 5 year extended warranty, just in case, and did pay a little extra to have it unpacked and set in place in my basement "Man Cave".
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Looks and works fantastic!
by:Wine junky (01-13-2016)
Comments:I looked for a large single zone wine cellar off and on for about 6 months. I kept coming back to this one as the ratings and reviews seemed the highest for the price.
I finally ordered it and it delivered within 10 days. The unit came on a small pallet and was packed really well.
I unpacked it and moved it with my buddy within 30 minutes and had it against the back wall in my garage next to my regular garage frig.
The handle came days before and I put it on in 5 minutes.
I powered the unit up and started loading it right away. The quality seems very nice, I love the shelves and roller hinges. The blue light and tinted glass door are sweet.
The lock is the only item I am disappointed with. After spending almost $2k on this frig it was a bummer to see what type of lock they put on the frig. It works fine and it is similar to other wine frig locks but it seems like spending another $5 to have a real lock would be an easy decision.
3 weeks into owning it and I love it!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Comments:I researched extensively prior to purchasing the FlexCount Series Wine Refrigerator. I like to read the reviews but I don't necessarily comment on the products that I buy. However, the overall experience of buying this item, quality, delivery, price & customer service were over the top so I decided to comment. It came with two handles (straight & curved) and I like the straight handle. I highly recommend it to all the wine lovers who needs a wine refrigerator. As a matter of fact, I recommended it and provided all the information to a friend who was looking for this size wine refrigerator.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
I am Very Happy
by:Michael (09-14-2015)

Comments:I had a house in Maryland with a nice cool basement. Then I retired to Florida and had to keep my wine cool. After researching wine coolers I thought that this was the best buy. I placed an order and it arrived a day early. The delivery person was most helpful in getting the unit into my home.

I have had the unit for nearly a month and it keeps the temperature within 2 degrees plus or minus. All my wine fit easily even the heavier Cab bottles. If you are looking for a wine cooler, check out this one. You will not be disappointed.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Great Product, Fantastic service

Comments:I bought a cooler that did not work in the location I sought. Beverage Factory recommended this unit as a replacement, it works perfectly. They took back my origwinal purchase at full price and delivered this unit with same discounts as my original purchase. I fully recommend Beverage Factory for any future purchases.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Beautiful and functional

Comments:I put them in my garage and they seem to be do great. Since it is two that you put side to side I was not able to get them square(though it could be the garage). The shelf spacing is perfect.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Excellent Wine Cooler
by:JimS (05-18-2015)
Kansas City, MO
Comments:The unit(s) are quiet and hold a good steady temperature. The absolute best thing is the larger wine bottles fit exactly like they state! I am able to get 11 of the larger bottles on a shelf although it is snug.

My only complaint is the temperature settings. I have two top quality thermometers, one in each side. In order to keep my red wines on both sides at the same temperature I have to set one about 4 degrees higher than the other. That is a very small complaint for an otherwise perfect wine refrigerator!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Staff Reply:Thank you for your review! We're glad you are happy with your purchase!
Great Cooler
by:NBG (05-18-2015)
Wine country Lodi,Ca
Comments:This cooler replaced a 60 unit one and it is just as quiet. The roller shelfs slide out easly. While it will probably not hold 177 bottles there are three shelfs that you can stack several rows or larger bottles. Had a few minor issued but suport hadled them quickly with no problem. I have another 60 one which will get replaced soon.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Finally a wine cooler worth the price
by:Carey (04-16-2015)
San Diego, CA
Comments:This wine cooler was purchased for the sole purpose of cooling larger type bottles and I was very impressed with the shelf configuration. Haven't seen any other unit that can accommodate my wine collection especially at this price point
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
So far so good
by:Simon (04-02-2015)
Reno, NV
Comments:We got this wine fridge because our older one finally died on us. We did a lot of research and we're happy with our decision to go with an Allavino. I really like the racking design and the fridge looks very nice in our kitchen. We were looking at wine fridges in a wide range of prices and decided this was going to be our best bet...and so far we were right.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Great unit and quiet
by:Matt (04-01-2015)

Comments:this unit has been working nicely since I got it. Its quiet and stores my different size wine bottles. Ive been looking for a unit that does not only hold standard size bottles.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
The shelves make the difference
by:Justin (03-23-2015)
Shelburne, VT
Comments:I had a wine refrigerator from another brand that I was only getting about half the capacity I was supposed to because I had to take out every other shelf to fit my bottles. So it was this big fridge taking up lots of space without much capacity. My friend got one of these Allavinos and when I saw how the shelves worked, I knew I had to get one for myself. It arrived on time, fit perfectly in my space and fits my bottles exactly as they should without having to remove any shelves. My only problem now is I have to go buy some more wine to fill up the extra space I have... poor me!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Great Unit
by:Jared (03-19-2015)
Fort Myers, FL
Comments:I currently do not have enough wine to completely fill it, but all my bottles fit comfortably. The unit is very easy to load using the slide out shelves. The unit is heavy so I had to be careful moving it to my desired location, but it looks and works great so far. I have only had this unit for about a week, but everything seems to be running great. The unit is very quiet and also has an attractive door design. I will update if anything changes, but so far I would definitely recommend this model.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Great so far!
by:Michelle (02-02-2015)
St Louis, MO
Comments:We ordered this wine refrigerator for our newly remodeled kitchen, and we are very happy with it so far. We opted to pay more for white glove service, they brought it into the house, unpacked the unit and removed all the cardboard, it was worth the extra money to not have to do that ourselves.
Great wine cooler!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Great service and products
by:John (10-29-2014)
Columbia MO
Comments:Just got this unit as a replacement for the prior version which I owned since fall last year. After 10 mos of loyal service the prior unit 'died' and I worked w/Danielle at BF and within just about a week I had a brand spanking new unit delivered at no charge...they stand by their warranty and promise of excellent prompt service.
I've only had this unit a week or so but so far I love it!
I'd never consider buying a wine frig or specialty frig from anyone but BF!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
