Water did have a funny taste to it for the first 2.5 gallons or so but after that cleared right up. Easy to install and exactly what we were looking for our department to stay healthy! And great price for what you get. Storage is super handy.

Cheaply made product
Has no ejector to remove water bottle plug so water splashes over machine and floor when replacing bottle.Platform for cup or glass very small so you must hold cup in place...Read complete review
Has no ejector to remove water bottle plug so water splashes over machine and floor when replacing bottle.Platform for cup or glass very small so you must hold cup in place when getting water.Took approximately 10 gallons of water to get rid of metallic taste in machine.Had Whirlpool before purchasing this machine because Whirlpool no longer makes dispensers.

About Me Budget Shopper
Comments about Avanti Hot And Cold White Water Dispenser:
I bought this "open box" from Abt. Good quality machine. In some ways it's very basic, in others it has very nice features that I like. Individual power switches for hot and cold give me flexibility (I actually use mine for hot water on one spout and room temp. on the other.) The water heater has an "econ" button, so if like me it's only one person using it you can set it to only have hot water when you press the button on the front. (It maintains the water at a warm temperature so you're not starting from cool every time).There's a "cooler" on the front which is not powered -- it's basically just an insulated chamber like a lunch cooler. Toss your lunch in there when you get to the office. ;-)This does *not* have a bottle piercer, so you have to put the new bottle in the old-fashioned way -- a quick dump and hope you don't spill. I refill my bottle at the grocery store, so I just fill my five-gallon jug to four gallons and I have some leeway when I tip it.I'm very happy with this purchase.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Working good so far

Other brands have not lasted in our house more than 1.5 years. We shall see if it makes it past the warranty period for this brand. Convertimg the bottom storage area to a mini fridge would have been a plus, but they didn't do that on this model.It is working nicely after 3 weeks.
Service and delivery comments:
Not sure why ABT shipped it UPS, but unit arrived quicker than expected. The plastic ring on top of the tank was displaced I presu,e in shipping. I had to remove the top of the unit to fix it, and all seems to be working fine.

Can't believe anyone would produce a water cooler without a bottle piercer. And no individual temp controls come on. DO NOT WATSE YOUR MONEY ON THIS!!!! Abt should stop selling this now

from Sulphur, La.
Do I have a thermostat to lower the cold temp?It gets cold but, not cold enough for me. My last water dispenser cost less but had a thermostat to lower the temp.
