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.

Spacious but shipping packaging results in damage

Javier74 10/5/2020

For being a 5.0 cu ft unit, it is quite spacious to store plenty of frozen foods. However the way the unit is packaged for shipping, lends to damage in the lower areas as evidenced in various other people seeing the same damage as mine. Also the unit doesn't come with louvers for the rear opening to the compressor resulting in an unfinished look and a way for bugs to enter the compressor compartment.

Cookie4evr32 10/3/2020

This freezer is the perfect size for a single person. It doesn't take up much room in my garage. It's easy to move around if needed. It reached it's cooling temp quickly and was ready to go. I'm glad I made this purchase!

I needed a second freezer to help hold a side of beef. I was concerned about placing a freezer at the end of my island, but it is perfectly sized so that it doesn't take up too much of our walking space. Very pleased so far.

Tony I 9/29/2020

This is an incredible unit. It is small and lightweight but freezes like a champ. I had it delivered and set up in the garage; plugged it in and two hours later the water bottles I put in it were frozen. The freezer is small but very deep: reusable grocery bags are perfect for storing items in so they are easy to get out. I don't know how they do it but the compressor takes up very little space in the unit so there is lots of food storage space.......and it's quiet too. Great product.

Garrett810 9/29/2020

The chest freezer is perfect for a small family that needs extra freezer space. It doesn't take a lot of room, but still can hold quite a bit. The reason for only four stars is the fact that it does use quite a bit of energy. For as small as it is, I figured it to be a bit more energy efficient. It doesn't use a tremendous about, but considering it's size, I figured it would be a bit better energy wise.

I was afraid this would be too small, but it is very roomy inside. It fits perfectly where I wanted it to go in my house. It chilled up quickly, it's runs quietly (it's in my kitchen) and so far so good. I'm very happy with this freezer. I bought it because of the size, price and the GE brand being very reliable. I made a good choice.
