We got this chest freezer to store a side of beef (1/2 steer) and it does so with a lot of room to spare. That's about 250 pounds of meat. The freezer was a bit large for our house, so we had to put it in the garage. The two of us were able to carefully lift the empty chest (not with our backs) and move it to the garage. So far the compressor doesn't stay on all day long in the warmer, somewhat stuffy garage. Honestly though, I don't recommend putting it in the garage unless it is your last resort (especially if the garage could have temperatures of less than 0 F or above 110 F). I have a fan turning on during the heat of the day to help advect heat away from the exterior walls, especially from the compressor side (on the left as you look in the chest); the refrigerant can get quite hot to the touch otherwise. I like the green light on the freezer; it is an indicator that it is on even when the very quiet compressor is off. I wouldn't have minded the noise of this machine; it is quieter than our side-by-side upright freezer and refrigerator. The appliance cord is a bit short, but the manual says as a last resort you can use an appliance approved extension cord. At setting 4 (the manual's default) it keeps the freezer around -6 F, perfect for storing meat long-term. Excellent freezer for the cost! I only wish it had a Freezer alarm to help product our food investments.

We purchased the freezer two years ago. It sits in our (climate controlled) laundry room, just off the kitchen. We are very happy with the layout, movable shelves, ease of cleaning, etc., and the freezing performance is excellent. HOWEVER, almost immediately following installation, the compressor (or fan?) began to make a whistling noise when running. It was annoying, but we hoped it would go away as the unit broke in. Quite to the contrary, the whistle has continued to increase in volume over time, to the point of being extremely annoying and interfering with conversation or TV watching, even in our dining area which is essentially two rooms away. We have to close the door to the laundry room to shut out the noise. So I would say, if you're going to put the freezer in the garage or storeroom, you'll probably be OK and should be pleased with the performance, but I would not recommend placing the unit in or near your living area.

Comments about GE White Manual Defrost Chest Freezer:
I've had my freezer now for over two months. I can honestly say its been a wonderful investment! I know a lot of people don't care for the chest style freezer but I gotta tell ya, its Very roomy, easy to see and get to what ever you need and the 4 baskets work beautifully as they hold so much and simply slide out of the way or can easily just be lifted out.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

All good so far. When I read all the customer reviews, GE was in front all the way. Our chest freezer lives up to our expectations.

I bought this to replace a freezer that was more than 20 years old. It still ran but I knew it was wasting electrical power. After 1 month using this new freezer, my electric bill went down over $100.00. I'm very pleased!
from New York, United States
Excellent features which include baskets inside that slide on a track and a light on the outside which lets you knowe at a glance that the unit is still powered up.

The multi level basket system is great. I don't have to dig through layers of frozen packages to find what I want.
from Minooka, IL, United States
Great value and no issues so far. Purrs quietly in our garage for long term freezing. The hanging baskets are really handy for organizing!
