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.

Great for a side of beef, with some space to spare

Moved to the country 2/1/2021

We wanted a quality chest deep freezer in our garage to store a side of beef from a rancher. We have been happy with GE quality in the past and they could quickly deliver a fairly large capacity freezer to our rural home. Although it does not have automatic defrost or quick freeze mode, it will serve our needs very well in the garage. If they had an even larger chest available in stock, I would have chosen for extra capacity.

Heavy Lid

Sorry4buying 1/13/2021

Lid too Slams Shut Fast! Love the size and most feature of freezer. However! The GE Freezer lid is so heavy it slams shut fast! Be careful, food near top can be crushed along with fingers near lid can be smashed too if near lid when lowering lid! You have to hang onto the lid to lower the lid slowly.

So roomy

Her Dawdaw 1/13/2021

Clean and slick, nice fit and finish, my first lighted chest freezer, and first with red and green temp monitor lights. It took months to arrive due to covid 19 causing complete buy-out of existing stock of freezers nation wide, but it was so worth it. My freezers stay on a well covered back porch on the gulf coast, so the compressor/cooling always outlasts the case. This one seems better suited than the thin paint on bare steel I normally find on freezers. This one may beat them all.

Sebi 1/6/2021

Clean looking freezer. Simple enough. Storage layout is very nice. Baskets are great. We did purchase another basket to keep the most commonly used foods accessible. We are a family of 7, so the extra space is great to have. I bought a thermometer to check the temp throughout the freezer, and it has a consistent temperature everywhere. We have been very pleased.

Excellent large capacity freezer

riley216 12/27/2020

Freezer was installed in an attached garage where temperatures may see single digits but hopefully not below 0F. Width is nearly 65", 18" wider than similar freezers so plan accordingly. Not as deep or tall as our current freezer of similar capacity although the inconvenience remains for lost/buried items at the bottom. Taller folks such as us may find it easier to dig around in the freezer by raising it with proper support in place. Will need to devise an organization system. Temperature control conveniently located in front. Fan is in the rear where it is less likely to be obstructed. Electrical plug with 3-prong is straight, not the wall-hugging type that can interfere with use of the other outlet so be sure there is room behind the freezer so the plug does not bind. Lid is a bit heavy but forms a good seal for efficient operation. Cools quickly to 0F at setting 4. The manual defrost is not an issue for us. Baskets are deep enough to store item for quick access.

Noneyanone 12/24/2020

The freezer itself works great. The lock on it is less than desirable. It is very cheaply made an I cannot lock it. The key is a piece of plastic, broke one trying to lock the door but it just won't lock.

Very Nice Freezer

Retnavysailor 12/18/2020

Although, we have only had this massive freezer for two days it is very big measuring 65" long with an inside depth of 28.5" deep and a width of 18 3/4" ( It is a bit wider but I measured it for hanging baskets) wide for stackable baskets. It also has an audible and visual temperature alarm. Although, this is a bit bigger than we needed, we went ahead and purchased it because our main chest freezer was finally dying and needed a replacement. In addition, the other models were delayed for up to 3 plus months due to Covid wrecking havoc everywhere. The only complaints I have about this model are it doesn't come with wheels, it only comes with two hanging baskets ( but more can be purchased online), and it's not energy star compliant which is a bit strange, especially in 2020. Nevertheless, it's still a great chest freezer as long as you have the needed room and the available budget. I hope this review makes you smile and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone out there looking at this great chest freezer.
