Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this freezer! I bought this freezer because I grow tomatoes, and they come at one time. I give some away, but the rest I freeze to make sauce for lasagna. The freezer does its job quietly. I also have room for other items to freeze. It is nice to have extra freezer space!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I purchased this freezer based on its overall very high rating, compared to some others that I looked at in the same price range. I've only had it for a few months, but so far, so good. We're very happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First impressions Just installed, up and running with 1/4 beef. Reached freezing temperature quickly. Quality appears to be good and it's very quiet while compressor is on.

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.
