The good, the bad...
Posted by: FreezerLady from: on
On the good side, this product was reasonably priced, quickly available, light enough for my husband and me to lift and easy to transport home in a mid size SUV. We put it in the garage, on a GFCI outlet. It reached desired temp. in about 24 hours and we put some meat, chicken bones (for soup) and blackberries in it.
On the bad side, a few days later it turned itself off. I didn't know it, and the contents were spoiled. Neither the house circuit breaker nor the GFCI tripped, so I have no idea what happened. I purchased a thermometer with an alarm and it's been O.K. for almost a month, but I'm still wary. If you need some extra freezer space I'd buy it, but I'd also spend an extra $30 and get a thermometer with an alarm.

We were always running out of room in our freezer, and got into the bad habit of going to the grocery store often. This allows us to stock up on meats and ice creams, the essentials. It is a good size for our needs, but we purchased baskets (elsewhere) so that we can keep it organized. The one basket that comes with it, is too small for most things I'd want to freeze.
We are keeping it in a garage, that usually stays 10 degrees cooler than the outside temps, it seems to be doing well and have not noticed any moisture build up, or jump in our electric bill.

Great extra freezer storage
Posted by: Marlee from: on
I used this freezer to store breast milk I've saved up for my baby. I've only had it for a month but so far so good. It's a good space and have not really had to defrost it yet. It's a good size and fits in my kitchen pretty well.

Great for our family
Posted by: afolc from: on
This has been a great freezer for our family of 5. We're able to store 10 crockpot meals, several pounds of meat, and various boxes of other goodies without any problems. The basket is very handy for the smaller items.

Very nice freezer not to big and not to small..I love that it has on the outside a drain so when you deforest the water it can drain out no hassles.

Great size deep freezer
Posted by: BestBuyer from: on
Bought this deep freezer to freeze meats, buns, ice cream, etc. for family events b/c we entertain quite a bit. It has an easy access basket & has the perfect amount of space to help offset what items not typically used in a refrigerator freezer. It holds it's temperature and does not freeze burn any items properly stored within.

Great small compact freezer
Posted by: MicMac615 from: Centereach, NY on
Very roomy for a compact freezer. Fits perfectly in a small area. Stores a lot of food. Works well and is an energy saver too!

Superb Quality Freezer at low cost.
Posted by: SHAR3139 from: on
This freezer has the appearance of a small size freezer but holds up to the capacity of large size freezer. Its deep compartment allows you to storage much more food that you would imagine. Excellent size for those who live in an apartment or a small home.

I've had this unit for a couple of months now and I am very happy. It maintains temperature very well and it's compact size was just what we needed. Blue indicator light shows power to the unit and the easy to reach temperature control faces front. This might not be an ideal situation if you have small children that might like to turn knobs. The hanging basket helps to hold smaller items so they don't get lost in the bigger space. Exterior is not flimsy like some models we checked out and it all wipes clean very easily.

It is a great size for a regular household. If you constantly have a lot of frozen products then you may want to shell out the extra $20 for the 7.0 cu ft one. I live in Phoenix and even in 120 degree weather it stays cool and everything remains frozen.
