Very Good Little Freezer

Comment:
This is great little freezer for a single person or a couple. The compact size allows me to keep it fairly full and running efficiently. It's just a basic freezer, with no alarms or automatic defrost; which I don't need. There is a power light to show that it's running, and two sliding baskets (I did add a plastic bin to organize things on the bottom though).<br /><br />This replaced a 30 year old freezer, so obviously the quality isn't the same--substantially lighter with a lot more plastic--but it seems comparable in quality to most smaller chest freezers made today.<br /><br />I've had no problems so far, and would recomend this to anyone looking for a small, affordable, basic freezer.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I've had this over 2 years now. It works flawlessly in my garage, where it is placed against the warm wall from my heated basement. I have not yet had to defrost it, and have had no problems whatsoever. You may wish to make your own dividers to make it easier to locate and organize foods.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
