Oasis Water Coolers Reviews

The Oasis water coolers are among some of the most established and popular bottled water coolers on the market today. They are durable and built to last with quality in mind.

The manufacturer constantly strives to improve the available coolers and bring out to the market new, improved models that cater to homeowners and businesses cold and hot water needs.

There are two distinct model types that are available from Oasis today: the floor models and the countertop models.

Floor Bottle Water Coolers

The floor models are split into 4 distinct series with names related to water and the sea: the Nautica series, the Atlantis series, the Artesian series and the Odyssey series.

Nautica Series

When it comes to the Nautica series, you have actually two types of coolers to choose from: the round and the square shapes. I truly like both, but I'm particularly biased towards the round shaped coolers. Maybe because my previous dayjob location had one of these and it was truly great throughout all the 5 years I've been working there. The water cooler was the place to hang out in our breaks and discover the latest gossip from the around the office, and chit chat a bit.

Nautica Oasis Water Cooler

Oasis Nautica Round Hot 'N Cold Water Cooler - This is exactly the model I encountered before, and I have to say, it is a great model and truly quality design. It has a removable reservoir which is extremely easy to clean. You can put it in the dishwasher, it's quite safe.

While initially it seems to be rather expensive at $386.99, it's actually quite a good price compared to many similar ones on the market that are even more expensive, yet provide less value for the money.

Price: $386.99

Here are the main product features:

  • Round, scratch-resistant polycarbonate cabinet
  • Patented removable plastic reservoir that's easy to clean and dishwasher-safe

Speaking of the warranty, our company had the cooler for over 5 years and when I left from my dayjob they still used it without a problem. All you need is follow the regular maintenance procedures and you will have a long lasting cooler that will not break or need to be repaired any time soon.

Atlantis Series

Onyx Oasis Water Cooler

Oasis Atlantis Series Hot N' Cold Water Cooler is another great bottled water cooler. It has a rounded front and I've seen it both in black and white. The white goes quite well in most kitchen, but the black is extremely sleek and goes in places that want to look more expensive and sophisticated.

You can find the bottled water coolers in the Odyssey series with no filtration or with refrigerator. I've seen the model with refrigerator in action and I have to say I was impressed. And not only that but the model itself is truly beautiful, elegant and completely at home in any self-respecting kitchen.

Additional features include a stainless steel front with removable metal side panels, and push-back faucets for one handed filling. Where a bottle normally enters the top of a cooler, a float assembly is fitted.
