So far, so good!

HappyInPA 5/19/2022

Nice, roomy freezer. We have only owned it for about 10 days, so far, so good. Within 24 hours of installation, we loaded it with a 1/4 side of beef. I think we should have waited maybe 48 hours because it took 2 days for the red light to go off. Temperature inside was 4 degrees above zero and the temp dial was all the way up. After two days the light went off and temp was registering 5 degrees below zero. Now I have the dial at 3 and inside temp is registering just below zero. Very happy with my purchase.

First freezer

NewCustomer25 2/28/2022

This is our first chest freezer. We are using it in the garage and it stays very, very cold. It has plenty of space and came with 2 baskets that sit up top for organization. The only reason it has four stars instead of five is that we have only had it set up for about a month or so. We hope it lasts years, so this is too soon to tell if it will actually accomplish the goal we have for it.

ThremodynamicsFanBoy2 2/13/2022

It's a miracle of modern science and manufacturing! Who knew thermodynamics could be so awesome?! You plug it in and the inside get cold, not just a little cold, really cold! It's especially amazing at keeping stuff that you want to keep cold, well, really cold.

Good freezer

Sam and Windy 12/19/2021

Once we got it, the directions are almost too simple. We plugged it in and put some already frozen bottles of water in it. And then we waited for the over temperature light to go out. 24hrs later, with a thermometer in it and it was 28F. Still over temperature light is on. Reread the directions on how long it takes to be at the right temperature. There is nothing about it. 48 hours later, 17F in it, and over temperature light is still on. Called for help, No one could come out to help for a few days. 72 hours later still over temperature light is on. At 80+ hours later it finally goes out. It should tell you that it will take a few days to get to cold enough for the sensor to go. I would not have worried and called for help, if it just stated that. It has worked great ever since, no issues. Wish it had rails in it for different layers of baskets. I would pay $100 more for it if it had rails. I do not understand why the deep freezer company just put them in.
