Excerpt: Have only been using for a month, however very satisfied so far. Good temp control and relatively quiet. We'll see how easy it is to defrost. Open about 3 -4 per 7 days. Not too much frost build up yet.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy Access, Holds Temperature Well
Excerpt: I have Celiacs Disease as do two of my three children. We make almost all our meals from scratch so having this spacious extra freezer to store unused items as well as made ahead meals is a life saver! The interior is so well lit that my kids can't not use the excuse "I didn't see it"! Plenty of shelves and lots of room for containers of frozen soups, and meals. I love it!
Pros: Adjustable Shelving, Attractive Design, Door Shuts Securely, Quiet, Space For Tall Items
Excerpt: The first freezer that we got had a broken seal and the door was not adjusted right. Abt was great about exchanging it and got us our new freezer right away. It is working well, no obvious air leaks and it maintains -20degC, so we are happy.
Pros: Door Shuts Securely, Quiet, Space For Tall Items
Excerpt: I use it to keep meats and prepared foods for a long time. I often cook ahead and freeze when I am having company. I wish there was a choice other than white exterior. It is light weight and moves easily.
Pros: Door Shuts Securely, Easy To See Items, Holds Food Well, Inexpensive
Excerpt: I ordered this before I realized that it was a manual defrost. I only figured it out by reading a review! If you have ever had to defrost a freezer you will know never to get another one! The salesperson told me that if you are not opening and closing the freezer a lot this is better. I use it every day so I chose to cancel the order and get a frost free....my new one is great.
Summary: I have this freezer running in my basement and it has worked great so far. It's very quiet (aside from when it was first installed and took time to get to 0 degrees). The metal handle is nice looking, but feels a little wobbly at the places it attaches to the door. The inside of the freezer makes nice use of the shelving and allows for storage of quite a few large size items.
