Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Bang for My Buck

Voyageur 7/7/2020

So far, this freezer seems to be holding up to its value. It has ample capacity for frozen goods, and it's almost too quiet! It is also easy to roll across my floor when I'm cleaning. While this model doesn't have an automatic defroster, that doesn't seem to be a problem in a dry climate. I've already cleaned out the inside once, and not a drop came down through the drain hole because there was so little condensation to begin with. The primary drawbacks (and feedback to GE) are: (1) recessed handles are on the side of the door but not on the front; and (2) it only has one hanging basket (although it can fit three, and ought to come with three to make it more economical - it's a deep reach and takes a lot of shuffling to get to the bottom).

Spacious Inside, Unobtrusive Outside

adamadamson 7/1/2020

We bought the freezer to increase our food storage. It is our first standalone freezer, and we worried about its capacity. The photos online don't do it justice, but the measurements are on target. It perfectly fit the space we measured, and is spacious on the inside. Great seal on the lid, and good temperature controls.

Seems okay for now

KimFischer 7/1/2020

I just installed the freezer today and it is already cooling nicely, however, it does not come with the metal cover for the compressor opening like my previous freezer did. There are screw holes around the opening so it is obviously meant to have the cover/grill to keep creatures from getting inside. I know have to go to the hardware store and get hardware cloth to attach to the opening. For this reason, I would not recommend to a friend as I would not want them to have to make a trip to the hardware store and spend more money.

Very quiet but hard to level

Ed Ashworth 6/25/2020

Have been using this freezer for about a month. The instruction book should have a drawing and explanation on exactly how to level the thing. Be prepared to spend several minutes between getting down on your knees to adjust the feet and getting up to check your level. With that done, the freezer has been very quiet. We have noticed frost forming when the wire basket sets on the inner ledge. I would buy again.

Jason702 6/24/2020

You can tell this is a well built freezer. The freezer temperature dial is set half way to coldest setting and it keeps things colder than my refrigerator freezer. The popsicles are so cold they stick to your tongue if you don't let them sit a minute. The unit is also surprisingly quit especially compared to my refrigerator. You can barely hear it running other than a faint hum. I feel like it was definitely worth the price. The only con is with the depth. You have to pile and stack stuff on top of each other but that's the problem with all of the chest freezers. At least they give you a little basket to put smaller items in.

Mike2013 6/22/2020

This freezer works great for my needs. I have it set up in my garage to help alleviate storage in my kitchen freezer. I don't require a lot of additional storage so the size is perfect for me. If you are looking for a a lot of storage I would consider getting a larger unit. This particular product has more depth than width but if you are looking for something simple and size/cost effective, I would definitely recommend this product.

RobynFinchum 6/17/2020

We have been trying since the lockdown in March and finally got our freezer. We didn't really know where to put it so it ended up in the office. Luckily it is the perfect size, about the same height as the desk and it doesn't look bad in the background of zoom meetings. I need to find some kind of bins or shelves for easy access but other than that I really love it.
