Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Basic Freezer This 5 cubic foot freezer works well, runs quietly and maintains the appropriate temperature, but there is already a little build up of frost near the hinges. It would be nice if this unit could be made in a frost free version with a couple of additional shelves. Otherwise, it's a satisfactory, inexpensive auxiliary freezer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great no nonsense freezer Nice size for storing all our frozen foods. Easy to set up and move. The price vs. value vs. size was a very good choice for us. Our last freezer required shims for balancing and keeping the lid shut. No such problem with this one

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for Extra Space I bought this for extra freezer space to replace one that I had owned for over 20 years. This one is a little bit smaller than my old one but for two people it's fine. Only issue I have with it is that the basket that is supposed to hang inside the freezer was keeping the lid from sealing properly and we had ice forming on the inside edge. We took the basket out but I'm worried that the handles may have put a permanent dent in the insulating strip, we'll see. I read a lot of reviews warning people to not put it in a garage, to avoid extreme temps. We live in SW Florida and it's impossible to avoid extreme temps at any time, and I have the freezer in the garage. It's FINE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's brand new It's brand new .More will be revealed. Meantime it's quiet as a mouse and seems to cooling nicely. I put a thermometer in it and at the middle of the range it showed 14 degrees. I turned it down a tad and now we are off to buy steaks , chops and such

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic freezer. Have had this for three months and so far so good. It was a decent price and works perfect. It is very basic but that was all we needed. If it continues to hold up and run it will have been money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size and looks! What a cute freezer....almost hate to consign it to the garage. We cannot wait for July and blueberry picking time to fill this up with some tasty blueberries for next winter.

Can I use the freezer in the garage?

I believe that it has manual temperature control and manual defrosting therefore its use in the garage should not be a problem.
Asked by: Kaydee
Hi Kaydee- This is Sue at GE Appliances. Thanks for viewing! To obtain efficient operation, a freezer should be installed properly. Follow these guidelines for the best location for your freezer: Place the freezer where the surrounding external temperatures will not exceed 110 degrees F. or fall below 0 degrees F. Position the freezer in a dry, well ventilated room. Do not install it in a closet. Be sure to install the freezer on a floor strong enough to support it fully loaded. Place it solidly on the floor. If the floor is uneven, use shims to level the freezer. Allow for a 3" air clearance on each side and rear of the unit. We hope this helps. Enjoy!

is this made in the USA? or assembled only in USA?

I saw several small freezers like this that did not last long, frost keep building up, compressor making a loud noise after couple of yrs and finally did not give the expected freeze.
Asked by: victor
Hi Victor, While many of our products are assembled and manufactured in the US, this particular freezer is manufactured Globally. We appreciate you checking with us. Lisa from GE Appliances.
