Nice Unit
by:Tim (11-14-2016)
L.A.
Comments:This is a good looking unit that has flexible shelving and that runs much quieter than my previous cooler. The thermostat does not appear to be super-sharp accurate, but that is fairly common with these smaller coolers. Overall, this is going to meet my needs very well.

One caveat: the delivery company used by Beverage Factory had horrible customer service. The BF people were great, but the delivery company people were decidedly not great, most especially the condescending individual in the delivery company's SAN Diego office who never returned my call after assuring me that he would.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
good overall
by:steve (10-25-2016)

Comments:Transaction went smoothly and fridge arrived unscathed. Plugged it in and still working. Looks good, and seems to be very sturdy, with nice roller extension shelves. Now the downsides: There's a strange smell which won't go away. Not sure what it is, but leaving the door open for weeks or cleaning it does no good. Temperature is consistently 2 degrees warmer than is set. Bottle capacity is "iffy" and very cramped - depends entirely on the bottle shape. If the shoulder is too high and neck too short, you cannot sit two bottles neck-to-neck, which cuts the shelf capacity in half. Has to be long, slender bottles or low shoulder.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Great Wine Cooler!
by:Lori (07-21-2016)
Florida
Comments:The wine cooler arrived on time. I unwrapped it and put on the curved handle because it matches my other appliances. I realy liked the fact they sent 2 different styles of handles! Then I let it sit 2 days before plugging it in. When I plugged it in it reached the temperature, I set it to for red wine, in 15 minutes! Then I put my wine in. It's very quiet compared to the Danby I had previously. It is built with very good quality, has smooth, ball-bearing type roll-out shelves and a beautiful blue light. I am very happy with my sales associate at the Beverage Factory and also customer service. Thank you so much!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Perfect wine frig for our kitchen!
by:Joe (03-03-2016)
Los Angeles, CA
Comments:Overall, my wife and I love our new wine fridge. Mainly we were looking for something that fit a very specific space and didn't cost too much. While $1400 still seems a lot for frig that does nothing but hold wine, it's very competitively priced for frig's of the same quantity. For the side-by-side, they are two separate models. One arrived dented on the top back corner. This would have been a non-issue if it were for an under cabinet location, but since ours was to be quite visible, Beverage Factory immediately sent a replacement no questions asked. Great customer service! We've have the frig for about a week now. It looks nice and is relatively quiet. I read complaints about noise, but it's in our kitchen next to the refrigerator and doesn't make any more noise than that. I'm not a stickler about exact temperature of wine storage. I just needed a dark, cool place and this does the job. I haven't been fancy enough to actually check the temperature accuracy, but it certainly feels adequately cool for our needs. Of course, like most wine coolers, the capacity is relative to the types of bottles stored. Still, we got pretty close to the claim even with some larger sparkling and pinot bottles in there. My only complaint would be that the shelves do not pull out fully, so it's a little hard to see the bottles in the back. Otherwise, I'm happy to have this a part of my newly remodeled kitchen!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Our choice for capacity/price/looks
by:Nancy (12-25-2015)
Fremont, CA
Comments:We've had our Allavino FlexCouint wine frig just a few days, but so far I especially like the amount of bottles it holds and I like the price. The unit was easy to set up, it looks nice in my dining room and it is quiet. I was surprised that we received both the towel bar and curved door handles. Not sure what to do with the one we're not using. The only negative so far is the door is slightly askew along the top and bottom edges, but it does not seem to affect the gasket seal. Decided to live with it because no one else would notice.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Perfect for my Butler's Pantry
by:Jeff in Williamsburg (11-28-2015)
Williamsburg, VA
Comments:Bought this to install in my Butler's Pantry. I've had for about a week and it works great! You still lose a little storage capacity--especially for tall bottles but not significant. The service from Beverage Factory is also great.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Efficient storage!
by:Sooz (10-23-2015)
Malvern, PA
Comments:Have only had it a week and so far, so good. Most impressed by the efficient arrangement of racks/shelves. Was able to store 1/3 more bottles in the same space as my old unit. We are big Pinot Noir drinkers so the larger lower shelf was much appreciated. My old fridge tore the labels off the bottles that were too large.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Excellent!
by:Dan (10-12-2015)
Prescott, AZ
Comments:I have a lot of large RHone-shaped bottles and after research found that they will not fit most coolers. With the Allavino FlexCount 56, all but the largest (3.5" diam.) Rhone bottles fit on all shelves. So I exchanged a few emails with Customer Support -- they were Extremely responsive -- and we found a way to handle even the largest bottles! This was some of the best customer support I've had from a company. Regarding sound, mine is totally silent most of the time, and when the compressor comes on for a couple of minutes, I only hear a smooth fan/air sound that is about the same volume as a refrigerator or the fan in a computer, and more like background white noise.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Love My Wine Cooler
by:Lori (10-02-2015)
Manhattan Beach
Comments:This cooler fit all my difference size bottles and I was able to put larger or a box on the bottom shelf. I love that it locks and it looks amazing. It's in my garage, but it is pretty quiet. To get the quality I wanted, I had to get a compressor. I called the store and the buy that answered really helped me to narrow down what I needed and the quality. It was delivered days later, on a crate and packaged very securely. I've learned that you get what you pay for so I didn't want to cheap out on this purchase. I unwrapped the box, removed the box and my husband picked it up and put it exactly where we wanted it. I recommend making the call if you need guidance and get it done.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

rack design not very versatile, stinky
by:Ko (07-31-2015)
SF Bay Area
Comments:Got the side by side unit for additional capacity and after years enjoying the Haier 42 bottle wine fridge that I had no issues with bottle format (we only ever cellar 1-2 large format or champagne bottles). The design and finished are great. We will be using them as free standing units and will eventually get a countertop to put on top so we can use it as a buffet when needed.
Units came very well packaged and in perfect condition.
Opened the doors and it STUNK like epoxy. It's dissapating (we've only had them for a weel) but still stinks, will add baking soda to see if that helps. Only smells when the doors are open.
Then I started loading bottles. The majority of bottles we have do not allow the bottles to nest the way the racks were designed, nor does it allow for any other bottle we have aside from the few half bottles/skinny dessert type wines. So, I can get 5 bottles per rack instead of the stated 9 of that particular format ( which has a shorter neck, and slightly wider at the shoulders than the bottom...a typical St. Francis red bottle). Disappointing, but still more capacity overall and accomplishes the other functionality we wanted for our home.
They are pretty quiet, but do seem to run more often than our old wine fridge. And temp seems to be well controlled....but we've only had them for a week.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Exceeded Expectations
by:Phil (03-30-2015)
Flower Mound, TX
Comments:This is our 6th wine cooler and by far the best. We have two Allavino coolers and the single zone is far superior to the double zone unit. It is extremely quiet and appears to only cycle on when needed. The shelving and the glides are the best quality we have seen for units at this price point. Take our advice - go Allavino but only go single zone.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Seems great so far
by:L. Stein (01-22-2015)
Charlotte, NC
Comments:This product arrived in good condition, looks great, is quiet and works well so far (only been plugged in a week). This is the second wine refrigerator we've owned (had to leave the last one--different brand--when we sold our house), and the things I like better about this one are 1) the shelves are much more thoughtfully engineered to accommodate different-sized bottles, and 2) it has a lock, which is important since we have a little one on the way. One thing we don't love about it is that the shelves don't pull out far enough to see which wines are on the back row. You have to pull out the wine on the front row to get to the back row and then pull those bottles out to see what they are. It's something we can live with, but it is rather inconvenient.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Very Impressed with this Refrigerator
by:MJ (09-17-2014)
Bluffton, SC
Comments:Received the unit about a week ago. It is very well made and the racks are sturdy but pull out smoothly -- especially when loaded. Different sizes and shapes of bottles are accommodated easily. The cooler is free-standing in my home office, and the occasional soft whirring of the fan is barely noticeable. Overall great product.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
