    Things To Know!


    Insignia™ - 5.0 Cu. Ft. Chest Freezer - White Model: NS-CZ50WH6SKU: 8390036 Review: Purchased June 22, 2018 Things to take note of: After purchasing, let the unit sit upright for the good part of a day- allows cooling system fluids to properly settle. Before plugging in, make sure the freezer adjustment control is set to off. Plug the unit in any 15 amp receptacle. Do NOT use a GFCI receptacle on any freezer or refrigerator, as sudden changes in current, as when the compressor turns on and off may trip it, and say goodbye to your food. Once plugged in, adjust control to 6 o'clock (medium). This seems to be plenty cold for this unit. Check the temperature with a freezer guage, under $10 most places. The unit does come with an on indicator with a nice blue glow. Note, don't get too caught up in getting a larger freezer because it is only $20 more. Go by what you need. I can see I will almost never fill this freezer, and an empty freezer serve no purpose. I put a 25 pound turkey on the bottom, and I'm guessing I could fit five more. Perfect size and will fit in tight places; 28.75" Wide x 21" Deep x 33.5" High. Unit is quiet most of the time. A slight but noticeable hum when compressor kicks in- not a distraction. Keep in mind that all of these promotional freezers are coming off the same assembly line in China regardless of brand. Best Buy purchases container loads just like Haier/GE and Frigidaire do. That is why the models look virtually the same. It is also why availability is hot and cold. Best Buy can't simply stock these all of the time, because of changes in cost. Containers come in, and they quickly sell out, so there are delays in availability. Get one while they have them!

    Good Deal


    I was able to buy this in the store and bring it home in the car. I missed the $99 sale, but the $140 price I paid is still a good deal. At the moment it is located freestanding in the front room. Since it is on the carpet, I can barely hear when it is on. We had some weather in the high 90's here, and when I got home from work in the evening I ran my hand all over the outside to see where it was warm. Seems like they use the front and rear panels to dissapate the heat. The area just below the right hinge was quite warm. I did not feel any heat coming out of the grate below it where the cord comes out, or out of the grate on the lower right side. The inside temperature was zero degrees, set at the midway position. I took another reviewers advice, and put in two plastic milk crates, one on top of the other. This also keeps the contents away from the walls, allowing more air to circulate. I mostly use the top crate, and it's easier to get to since it's up higher, and I just lift out the filled crate and close the lid when I want to rummage through the contents. The lid on my unit closes squarely and securely. I was fortunate that there was no shipping damage. One end has adjustable feet that screw in and out, but there are no wheels, so you have to pick it up or drag it. (Will Not be using it to store breast milk.)

    Great Freezer!

    So, this little freezer is perfect!! First off, I could pick it up as it's not super heavy, and I got it home in a SUV, so the box isn't all that huge. I plugged it in and within a few hours it was really cold. I've had this for a few months, and not only is it perfect for all things frozen, but it doesn't use that much electric. My bill was flat since I plugged this in, so in no way is it an energy hog, and I keep it on a sunroon where it gets pretty warm. Great value for a very energy efficient deep freezer! My soon to be wife and I are on the go quite a bit, so this saves us money in being able to freeze meals vs. throwing out items just because we didn't have room to freeze things. On top of all that, Best Buy service was awesome, they loaded it in the car for me and all said, I was walked in the store and drove off 15 minutes later with a freezer.

    Wish I would have bought this sooner!

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This chest freezer is perfect for my needs. It is compact yet spacious. I use this with an Inkbird ITC-308 to control the temperatures for lagering beer. Couldn't be more simple to set up! It just so happens to double as a refrigerator at those temperatures as well. The included hanging basket is nice, but I went ahead and ordered a second one as well so I can keep some items in easy reach at all times. Insignia customer service was really helpful in finding the correct part number for the extra hanging basket (502903050005). Here is the direct link for those that want it.

    Nice, quiet, simple, compact freezer.

    We bought this on sale online as a small secondary freezer to have in addition to our 22 cubic foot Frigidaire chest freezer that was too full. I picked it up at the store and hauled it home in the back of my old compact car station wagon, laying it on its side. I carried it into the house by myself (I'm 70+ years old) and unpacked it and left it sit upright for a day and a half (very important). I plugged it in and saw the power light come on. It runs very quietly. The temperature control was set halfway between max and min. After several hours I checked the temperature inside with my own thermometer. It was several degrees below zero Fahrenheit (very nice). We've had it over a month now and are pleased with it. It is nice and compact and fits nicely in the little space we had for it. Treat the inside lining gently so that you don't scratch it or otherwise damage it. I am very glad we bought it when we did.

    The good, the bad...

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    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.

    Great overflow freezer

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I bought this freezer to toss into my garage. The idea was to be able to use it for items that were overcrowding the main freezer. To that end, this is a great little freezer - the box isn't too deep that you feel as if you may fall in when reaching to the bottom, the overall size isn't so large that I feel I'm sacrificing a parking spot for frozen burritos and it was extremely nice to have on-hand when the main freezer developed a problem and we needed to temporarily move everything. The ice cream was saved! The best part was the Best Buy home delivery - I was given advance notice of the delivery date and the driver, despite several issues*, committed to dropping things off as planned. If only all delivery services were this reliable. *The driver had problems with his truck in a rural area and spend several hours waiting for assistance. By the time he was able to resume his route, the typical SoFL sun had turned into torrential rains. And yet, my delivery was still made on the promised date. Kudos!

    Good Size, Works Well

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    When the price dropped on this chest freezer I thought it was a really good deal. It has plenty of space to hold long term items and to free up mostly used space in our main freezer. Easy to read instructions for set up. Low maintenance is a plus. Runs quiet. Like the one shelf inside as well as the basket that can slide to either side. Stay open lid is good. The packaging was nicely designed for moving it in place and all the pieces broke away without having to use a knife. Only nitpick would be the temperature setting and info on it. There is just a min and max setting. Would have been nice to have more options or info on what is optimal. Pick up in store was a breeze and they brought it right out to my car and loaded it up. Overall the shopping experience online, the in store pickup and the product itself were and are great. We are definitely satisfied with this chest freezer.
