Ease of Use:
This is a great small deep freezer. Has plenty of room for a variety of frozen foods including bags of ice for occasional party`s and get together. I put it in the pantry where it fits fine.
It run quiet.

Ease of Use:
BOTTOM LINE: I have been using this freezer for 4 months now, and I love it.
If all you want to do with this freezer is stockpile some extra frozen foods to have on hand through this pandemic, this may be a great choice. From the dimensions and online photos I worried that this chest
freezer would be too small for my needs, but when it arrived I saw that its capacity is much bigger than I had imagined and will hold more than enough frozen meats and foods to last me for months.
Note that on the back side of the freezer, there is a hole in the panel where the electric cord connects to the freezer. I am not certain why the manufacturer did not cover the hole, but I am guessing that the
open space helps keep the compressor cool, which extends the freezer life and reduces the heat buildup inside the freezer, helping to keep your foods cold and minimizing the amount of electricity the freezer
uses. Unless you have compelling reasons to cover the hole, you may want to just leave it open.
The positives about this freezer:
1. I love the height of this chest freezer. I am 5ï¿½ 8ï¿½ tall, and the top of the freezer is right at waist high, which makes it very easy to open and access.
2. I also like the dimensions/shape of the freezer because it is tall and wide but narrow in depth, so it does not protrude too far from the wall.
3. The freezer seems to be fairly energy efficient as I have not noticed a significant increase in my electric bill; however, I did place my freezer in the coolest place in my house, which is on a concrete
floor in my basement.
4. One day my power went out for about 3 hours, and although some melting did begin, all of my meats remained frozen solid, so I did not lose any food.
1. I paid extra to have the delivery guys bring the freezer inside, unbox it and install it for me, which was a huge waste of money because when it is empty, this freezer is lightweight and easy to move
around. Especially if you have another person to help you, I think most people could easily do it on their own.
2. As with any chest freezer, retrieving frozen items and managing a first-in/first-out concept is challenging because you have to stack food items from the bottom up. The alternative is to buy an upright
that will not be as energy efficient or keep your foods as cold during a power outage as a chest freezer will.
3. To set the freezer at the optimum operating temperature, youï¿½ll have to buy a separate thermometer, which are fairly cheap. In the absence of a thermometer, you can still trust the freezer to properly
freeze your food, you just wonï¿½t know if youï¿½re wasting electricity keeping the freezer colder than it needs to be.
4. The knob used to set or change the freezer temperature is not graded in degrees, so trying to set the freezer at the optimum operating temperature while using a thermometer is a guessing game. Rather
than risk setting the temperature too low, you may want to consider getting a thermometer and adjusting the temperature BEFORE you freeze any foods. That way, once you put your items into the freezer, youï¿½ll
know the freezer is set to the optimum temperature. The alternative is to turn the dial to the coldest setting, and slowly walk it back over time.
5. The freezer does click and hum when the cooling mechanism kicks on, but this freezer is quieter and makes a LOT less noise than my 3-year old refrigerator.
6. As other reviews have stated, this freezer does have a small amount of frost buildup inside, but I donï¿½t think the frost buildup in my freezer has anything to do with the lid. I think the lid and seals
are well designed and completely functional. Instead, I think some frost buildup is unavoidable whenever you open the lid, especially if the humidity in the room is high. Iï¿½ve had my freezer for 4 months, and
the frost buildup remains low.
7. My only real complaint about this chest freezer is that the electric cord is very short!
