    Perfect Freezer for Apartments

    I purchased this a few months ago to supplement my small refrigerator freezer in my apartment. So far, so good - no issues. It's not as noisy as other reviewers said it would be. It's so compact that I was able to tuck it away in one of my closets. Though it's compact, it's very roomy on the inside - much deeper than I thought it would be. This freezer even at 3.5 cubic feet has drastically reduced the number of trips I have to make to the store. The basket is perfect for holding items you don't want shifted to the bottom of the freezer. Since I'm an elite member, I was able to take advantage of the free delivery and install which was ideal for me since I'm on the top floor of a walk-up. It literally took longer to sign the paperwork than the install. A thermometer ensured the unit was freezing at the correct temperature and after the 24 hour wait, I was able to begin using it. I do wish the cord had been a foot or two longer but that's because my outlet is right outside my closet instead of inside. I've not had to defrost yet but I am very glad the drain plug is on the outside of the unit. It's so lightweight that I'll be able to take it out on the balcony to drain. I'm not that familiar with the Insignia brand so I did purchase the geek squad protection. The freezer was on sale at the time for $129.99 plus the geek squad protection came to just slightly over $200, which was perfect for my budget. This is my first chest freezer and I couldn't have made a better choice. I have absolutely no complaints.

    Good freezer for extra storage

    We ended up buying this freezer for extra storage for food. It is small and compact. They shipped it to the store because they charge for shipping to your home. Husband picked it up himself and said it wasn’t heavy at all. Read the instructions before plugging it in we learned. Wiped it down. You have to leave it plugged in for a certain amount of time till you can store items. The blue light indicates it’s on in the front of the freezer. The air vent is to the right of the freezer. It’s become quite useful. The only down side is where the motor is ... takes up a good amount of space in the freezer.

    Terrible packaging . My first one took home , had a huge dent , took it back they thought I did it . After opening one after the other in store we finally got to the 6th one , and I still had to settle because it was still dent although not as bad and terrible as the others the manager offered a discount so I could purchase the black tie and protect myself against any damages the dent may do in the future , I would seriously check the relationship with the manufacturer as they simply don’t package the unit well enough to protect from denting , all of them were dented . Terrible

    I purchased this freezer because I was sick and tired of all of my frozen items getting freezer burned in my current attached-to-the-fridge freezer. This little guy works great, keeps my ice cream cold, my meat frozen, and its got a ton of space for being so small. He's quiet for the most part (sometimes there is a bit of a weird rattling nose, but that has mostly stopped since it got to temperature). Overall, very satisfied.

    If you've got a very minimal amount of space (as I do) this is a great little freezer. It's relatively quiet, keeps the food frozen easily down to -4F, and holds quite a lot if you pack carefully. I bought this to replace a similar one I had for 11 years, and BB's price was the best around. Also the people at BB Hartsdale were extremely helpful in loading the car. Unfortunately, I couldn't bring them home with me to help getting it down the stairs into the basement ; )

    Great Small Freezer

    I use a lot of these small freezers in my business, and they do great. As is expected, the top baskets don't stay as cold as the very bottom (because physics, right?), and I wish that I had the opportunity to buy another basket. But the chest freezer does what its supposed to do, and does not take up much floor space.

    We bought this freezer to tide us over while we replaced a refrigerator that died suddenly. We kept it because it serves us well. It is small, so don;t plan on putting in a side of beef. But it unobtrusive and quiet. It is NOT frost-free (most chest freezers aren't). But we have had it operating fro a couple of months now and no frost build-up yet. Nice little unit that can augment a freezer with the fridge.

    Disappointed
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This freezer is the perfect size if you have a small area. I got this freezer to store breast milk in. I plugged it in and let it run for a couple of days. I just put something in it and now it rattles when it’s running. It’s annoying because I’m in an apartment and it’s in my dining room area. I’m considering returning it. I only got it because of the other reviews that said it was quiet.

    Small footprint but large capacity

    We live in an apartment with a standard freezer. Needless to say, not much room for extras, especially frozen pizzas or bulk buys. We bought this to ensure our food stayed frozen and to have extra room for those larger items. We loved how quickly it came to temp. The basket is useful and we keep smaller frozen items there. For the size, we feel it has a good capacity. We recommend it for those with a tight space but the need for additional storage.

    I live alone and the freezer in my refrigerator just isn't big enough.Now I can shop and know I will be able to fit it in my freezer. It's perfect for the small space in my laundry room conveniently located off my kitchen. It keeps everything cold and I'm very happy with this purchase. I would recommend anyone needing a little extra freezer space to buy one it is well worth the money spent on it.

    Great Freezer for Small Apartment

    This is a great freezer and it is perfect for a small apartment. I recently moved to Charlotte and I am in a one bedroom apartment versus the larger three bedroom condo I was in before moving here. I am an extreme couponer so I needed a freezer to keep my frozen goods in. This is serving the purpose, but I am looking forward to the purchase of my home and I will be buying a larger freezer.

    Perfect size for the two of us {mr wife and I} not only that, it has plenty of room, for plenty of stuff, easy to adjust, keeps exactly cold enough as to where I set it . Has nice strong white plastic guards, and a nicely located recessed handles on the sides of the lid. I like that the lid opens all the way up if you want which makes it easy to rummage around in it, and put larg items in it . .

    Priced right, very quiet, like the light showing the unit is on. Enough space for small family. Only had for about a month, will see if it is durable. Not many reasonably priced options available for a small unit. Checked a number of different stores including Amazon. This one seemed the best option. Not 5 stars because it needs to be tested for a much longer period.

    We needed a small freezer to hold breastmilk and read reviews prior and decided to go with this one. Easy to clean and store. I wish we wouldve bought the bigger size though. It is already full. So if you plan on storing more than a weeks wotth of food for a single or maybe a couple, this works. But for more than that, get the bigger one.

    We needed more room in the freezer. We decided to purchase a separate one, and boy was she ever so Happy. The dimensions were perfect for the intended spot we wanted it in. Lots of room to store what ever you need, it comes with one rack to store small items just wish it came with two but not deal breaker. Otherwise very Happy with the purchase

    I love to cook in bulk and freeze, and our apartment only has a Fridge-Freezer with a small top Freezer compartment. This additional chest has made a world of difference. There is so much space, including a small basket to keep smaller items or things you want to stay on the top. It's also really quiet, we haven't noticed any difference since it's been in the kitchen.

    I purchased for my son's apartment. His refrigerator' freezer was way too small as most apartment one's are. This freezer was not only the perfect size but also a affordable price. It runs very quiet and uses very little electricity. It has provided my the very needed extra space. I am so glad I bought it.

    I'm not sure what else a person could want for $100. I thought I needed a larger freezer until I saw this 3.5 Cubic Foot. I would guess it's about 2x the size of the freezer on my fridge. So far, it's working great. Light weight and easy to move around the garage.
