Perfect fit for our family!

Lauriek 11/12/2020

First time we have owned a chest freezer, this one looks very sleek and holds alot more than anticipated! Perfect item for a small family, and works great.

Perfect solution

Rara18 11/11/2020

This is the perfect size for our 3-person household, and it's small profile and garage-readiness/climate tolerance makes it perfectly suitable to for our home. The open back (where it looks like there should be a small panel) doesn't seem to be a problem, but I may put some screening to keep any critters out; only complaint is I wish the basket was a bit bigger with narrower slots (small things fall through). Very happy!

Changed My Life

Jarmin 11/10/2020

During a pandemic, is there anything better than having the perfect size freezer to store extra provisions? I think not. It's allowed me to bake, slow cook and roast everything imaginable - saving it all for snowy winter days. It's only drawback is that it's not self-defrosting.

Quiet and Works well

BBear 11/10/2020

I love this freezer. It is virtually silent which is great as I have it in my home office. It keeps a steady temperature (I put a thermometer in side) and it holds a lot of food. I am pleasantly surprised at the size of freezer. It is not too large, so it fits well in a small room, yet the inside is large enough to hold large bags of vegetables with plenty of space for trays of prepared foods, roasts, whole chickens etc etc and it is not even ⅔ full! This was just what I needed to free up the freezer in my fridge. It was a very good value for the price.

I have just had it for less than a week but I can tell you its worth the cost. If you are looking for a little more freezer space and not spend a lot of money, this is it. No scratches, dings or dents. I am very satisfied with it.

Great Capacity & Runs Quiet

Deedee56 11/5/2020

I absolutely love this freezer! I plugged it in for 12 hours overnight & filled it to capacity the next day. It holds 500 lbs. of food which cuts down on trips to the grocery store. It runs so quiet that I had to put my ear against the side to make sure it was running.& best of all, the energy costs are only $26/year. You can't beat that! One of the best purchases I've ever made!

wanted a freezer and I got one

lbeck13 11/3/2020

Picked this freezer based on online reviews. Glad it comes with leveling feet since it is in the basement. I wish I could have gotten a larger size but I just don't have the room. It cooled down very quickly and now I just have to figure out an organization system I would recommend this product. Very roomy and seems like it will do the job.

Patty Jane 11/3/2020

This freezer is perfect for that extra space that you'd like for all those frozen goodies that just do not fit in your side by side refrigerator in your kitchen! This freezer is garage ready and is easy to move around if the need arises. So far it is maintaining temperature and the items are solidly frozen. Wonderful freezer and at a reasonable price.

Grams 10/28/2020

Just installed today, but so far I'm pleased with our choice. Our large 11 year old upright was leading refrigerant. Since it's just two of us at home, we decided to try a small chest. It is amazingly roomier than it looked and the temperature was down to 0 in less than 3 hours.

Newbie 10/26/2020

Not heavily used. Freezes well. However, I am beginning to notice ice buildup around top gasket which prevents full closure of lid which leads me to believe it is not closing completely. Removed ice. Will check again in a week to see if ice returns.

Bigger than expected and seems sturdy. Light is a good feature - so you don't have to open it to know it's working. Wish it came with more baskets or shelves to separate items and not have to "dig," but for the money, I think it's a very good purchase.
