LED Interior Lighting

LED interior lighting is longer-lasting and uses less energy than incandescent lighting. Plus, it casts a bright light on the contents of your refrigerator so food looks as it should.

Fast Freeze The Fast Freeze Option helps you chill large amounts of food fast at just the push of a button. How it works: This option freezes large amounts of food fast, by driving freezer temps 10 degrees colder than the lowest setting.

Electronic Temperature Control Convenient, up-front electronic temperature controls let you choose the ideal temperature for whatever frozen foods you're storing.

Temperature Alarm A temperature alarm notifies you when the freezer's temperature rises to help you monitor the ideal environment for your frozen foods.

Frost-Free Defrost Frost-free defrost automatically prevents frost build-up, so you'll never have to empty the freezer for a manual defrost again.

Optional Icemaker An optional icemaker makes sure there is plenty of ice on hand.

Yuck!

Crafty 9/26/2017

Never buy sight unseen, only saw pictures. Due to cooling system vents you lose a lot of storage space. Due to door set-up you lose a lot of storage space; as basket at bottom holds nothing. Has adjustable shelves but not enough adjustment brackets, thus making any adjustments out of the question.

Great if you will always be home

Toni 8/7/2017

We bought this for the same reason many do - to stock up on food items and, hopefully, save money. We didn't even have this for a month when there was a short electricity bump in our neighborhood causing everything to shut off for a few seconds and come right back on. However, this did not come back on. I wasn't home at the time and a full freezer worth of food was ruined. Customer service was not helpful at all. They actually tried to make it seem as if I were my fault for not being home. It seems that I should constantly monitor the freezer and if it shuts off for even a second I am to go and unplug it for half an hour and then plug it in and turn it back on. When I mentioned that I have never heard of a freezer that you had to manually restart it was implied that all freezers are like that. Not true. Most, like your refrigerators, will come back on when power is on. The outage at my home was less than a minute I found out. However, since then, just a few days later I opened the freezer to make sure everything had been thrown away prior to it being picked up (we did not want something we couldn't depend on) when I discovered that it was off again. This time there was not a power outage at all. Just a faulty freezer. We lost a lot of money in food and a lot of blueberries that were picked during blueberry season at our home. Terrible customer service!

Our 20 year old freezer bit the dust. It i AMAZING that a freezer that takes up the same amount of space has SO MUCH more room. Another perk, the lighting inside is so much brighter it is easier to find what we have inside the freezer.

I was tired of defrosting old freezer

MineInTexas 6/30/2017

I purchased this freezer to replace a 22 year old freezer that I was tired of defrosting and I'm am so happy I finally did. I have had it for a month now. This freezer is so quite and I have not had any problems with any frost build up like other reviewers. The first day I turned it on fast freeze and then I have kept on the low setting since and it keeps everything frozen rock solid. It does come with 2 roll out baskets which I love, no more stooping down to try to find something in the back of the bottom shelf. The only complaint that I have about it is that the doors are not reversible, it opens on the wrong side for me (handle is on the left side) but I can live with that one small problem as long as I do not have to defrost anymore.

I TRUST THIS FREEZER

Helen the Artist 4/14/2017

After buying a high end name brand freezer and having it for only 13 months, it totally went out! The warranty was for 12 months. I researched the brands that had less problems than any and we bought the 20cu. upright freezer. It has been so quiet that I have to check it to make sure it's running. It's the perfect size for our pantry and it's perfectly awesome. I TRUST this freezer!
