This full sized upright freezer by Whirlpool is reviewed well on its own. There are some VERY harsh reviews online since this unit is often paired with a matching upright fridge, which can cause headaches if one unit needs repairs.

Pros: Dedicated Freezer Works Well, Auto Defrost.

This was a seamless experience. We had an opening which would only take one make and model so we looked around at who might have it.

Pros: Ordering was easy. Shipping was painless

Cons: took about 3 weeks to arrive
