It works.FUNCTIONAL:- Keeps stuff frozen- Chest style tends to be more efficient since the cold air doesn't dump out on the floor when you open it.- Plastic liner in top is a bit flimsy, appears subject to damage if you are not careful- Baskets and divider, while very helpful in organizing a chest freezer, are a bit flimsy, but so far after about a year holding up well.- Sheet metal outside cover is very thin, subject to denting.COST:- Very reasonable cost, especially if you source carefully- Operating cost is barely noticeable, keep it full tho. We put frozen gallon water jugs in it when not full, having added benefit of providing cold mass during a power outage.BENEFITS OF NON-DEFROST FREEZER:- Lower operating cost since in a self-defrost freezer, the process is executed with a heating element just like in your electric oven! (cool it down, heat it up, then cool it down!?!)- So, your frozen bread stays frozen. In a self-defrost freezer your bread (and other low-density items) thaw every time the freezer defrosts. (We learned this last one from the GE Service Tech who repaired our GE frig.)

After doing some research and reading a lot of good reviews, I decided to buy this freezer. It was performing nicely for a little over 6 months, then after a lightning storm the power went out and a few days later I noticed a strange clicking noise coming from the freezer and noticed it had stopped working. It wasn't plugged into a surge protector, so maybe that was the cause. When it was working it was very quiet, kept things at the proper temp. and is a great size for our kitchen. It's still under warranty and the service guy will be here in 4 days to fix it. Luckily, I was able to save all the food that was in there.

Comments about GE White Manual Defrost Chest Freezer:
Spacious chest freezer. Had a 5 cubic foot one years ago of a different brand which was a nightmare so I was hesitant on getting another one but after reading Consimer reports on this one we decided to go for it. Really helps on stocking up and saving money.

It is an amazing freezer. It is big, too. Got it on sale. Storing lots of veggies from my garden. I am glad I bought it for my partner.
Nice size, good quality, works even in hot garage.
So far no issues and I've owned it about 4 months so I'm pretty happy.

Perfect size for our little family. Only wish it had a child lock.
Just what we needed
from Brooklyn, NY, United States
We bought a new fridge. The fridge part was gigantic with a smallish freezer on bottom. This freezer was the perfect size to make up for the holidays etc. the only problem is it collects ice on the lip in the back. Just like every reviewer said. Seems there must be something with the gasket. But the seal is solid.
