Rated 4 out of 5 by from We had five childrens and now down to two, perfect freezer for "emptying the nest!" I would rate this chest freezer excellent in all categories if it were auto defrost, yet for the price it is an excellent value. Our entire kitchen is GE and we love GE appliances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freezer works efficiently and fits under my window. Product is well designed and holds a lot more food than I thought. I've not had to defrost it yet and have had it for over 4 months. Very little frost is developing on the sides near the top (1/8"). My monthly electric bill remains the same as it was prior to installing the freezer. Top basket is very convienent for items I use a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little Freezer I bought this freezer for the size.I have a condo with a back deck, and it fits perfectly.The freezer is compact, but went to work right away after delivery.It has a small slide basket tray on the top, which is fine for it's size.It holds just the right amount for my family of 3, and it has saved me lots of money in being able to shop for groceries in small bulk amounts. Being retired it is important to watch the electric bills and it has hardly moved them at all, so additional savings for being energy wise.
