    Test Results

    Thermostat control

    Thermostat control

    This assesses the ability of the Freezer's thermostat to 1) achieve the desired initial set temperatures following manufacturer's recommendations. 2) keep internal temperatures constant despite large changes in room temperature.

     /  5
    Temperature uniformity

    Temperature uniformity

    This performance test is based on how well a model minimizes warm and cold spots within the freezer.

     /  5
    Energy efficiency

    Energy efficiency

    This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two freezers with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.

     /  5
    Power outage

    Power outage

    Power outage is the freezer's ability to stay cold after the electricity goes out.

     /  5
    Noise

    Noise

    Noise level is measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.

    Ease of use

    Ease of use

    This assesses features and design including layout, controls, and lighting.

    Energy cost/yr.

    Energy cost/yr.

    Energy cost is estimated cost in dollars, based on the current year's average national electricity rate. Your cost will vary depending on the rate for electricity in your area.
