I have two Electrolux Beverage Coolers that are nice but I needed one that wasn't as deep. The unit works well and cost less than a third of the price. It isn't as polished and doesn't have the dimming presentation but it is good looking enough and does hold more beverages.

This unit constantly makes a gurgling noise when the compressor starts which can be heard through a closed door. The unit is in my office and I have had people comment what is that noise when I am speaking on the phone. I had the distributor give me a second unit thinking I had a bas unit but the second unit does the exact same thing.....BUYER BEWARE. In the past I had a high G.E. unit but tried to save a few dollars by purchasing this model......big mistake. Pay the extra money for higher end unit....you will be happier.

Great for storing cartons of soda
By Clubsoda man
Comments about Frigidaire Stainless Steel Beverage Center:
Delighted I bought this fridge. We hunted high and low for a fridge the size of our old bar fridge (since dimensions were really tight) but which fits 12-can cartons of pop or beer. Because our family drinks a lot of sparkling water, we wanted one that you can just throw 6 actual cartons of pop in (without having to stock the fridge with cans individually - I've got better things to do with my life). Biggest pros: looks nice, everything fits, quiet. You can fit 6 cartons of soda straight in with room for more individual sodas on top and bottom. Cons: the specs online do not tell you the interior dimensions - frustrating; and still getting used to the fridge beeping once every time you open the door. Suggestion: Why don't fridge makers just show a 12-pack in their photos -they'd sell more fridges? Notable: I read the other reviews, so bought a warranty just in case. But we have no problems of noise or temperature control - its really quiet, cool and just what we wanted.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Average in all respects
from River Forest, IL
About Me Casual Cook
It's a nice looking fridge. Doesn't hold temperature as well as it should, and the door doesn't always seal correctly without manual intervention. Average in all respects.
Merchant response: If you are having issues with Frigidaire beverage center(and it was purchased from Abt), please call our appliance service department at 847-967-8830 for assistance. Your appliance comes with a one year parts and labor warranty so there should be no cost for service.
Great second fridge
from Chicago, IL
great second fridge for younger kids to get their own drinks/snacks
We picked this unit simply because it matched the other appliances we purchsedfor our new house. We hear a loud gouling noise from this beverage cooler from one end of the house to the other. The owners manual says this noise is normal. REALLY..... Sure wish I had read these reviews before i bought this unit.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Sound is driving me nuts!
I love everything about this fridge except the noise that sounds like under water gurgling -nonstop!! I have been debating returning it- is this normal? It's crazy- how loud it is..

Close but not perfect
from Huntley, IL
We bought this to be a little microbrew fridge. The trouble is, the shelving options are not changeable and I can only configure for one level of bottle height beers. You can put some on the bottom, but that has less space, and tends to freeze when set at 35 (my husband likes cold beers). It also seems to run all the time to keep that temp. Not sure I would recommend. For the money, I expected better.

About Me Avid Cook
The unit has a good aesthetic and is built pretty solid (nothing seems loose and rattling about) but the temperature does fluctuate fairly irregularly and when set below 38 degrees does have issues where my sodas start to freeze so the temp is obviously lower than the thermostat thinks. Some may view that as a plus for alcoholic beverages that are harder to freeze as many beverage centers can't get that low at this price point but I keep a mix of soda and beer in it so it's an issue so i keep mine set at 38. The shelving is better suited for cans if you actually remove 1 shelf so that you can have them inside without laying them down to get them to fit so the rated capacity is a little less but everything does still fit nicely when you remove the 1 shelf. It's not the quietest unit in the world but at this price for a freestanding unit it's a respectable product.
What I had hoped it would be.
from La Grange, IL
We replaced our wine fridge with this one in our kitchen. The wine fridge was a leftover from our childless days. The beverage fridge is much more practical. It always seemed like never quite had enough space in our kitchen fridge because of misc beer, soda, and juice boxes. Pros: A big winner for me was the ability to remove / modify the shelving. I like beer and wanted a place to store bottles upright. We have removed one shelf and everything fits ... beer, soda, juice boxes, and water bottles. The temp indicator is easily visible and seems to remain current. The plastic shelves are sturdy much like those in a normal sized fridge.Cons: The noise is noticeable every once in a while at night but barely.The wine fridge has been moved to the basement.
