Aftermarket handles available if you are willing to pay for them

Diann Pence, Amazon
28 June 2014
  • Summary: Refrigerator is going on 3rd year and is still working fine. I use when camping or travelling on vacation so refrigerator really only gets used about 6 weeks a year. My only complaints are there is no recessed loop to allowing you to run a cable through (to lock in place) as well as handles are cheap plastic and will break no matter how careful you are. You can pack the refridgerator full and travel half a day with internal temperatures only rising to low 40's.

The Handles & Hinges Break Far Too Easily

JC Perry, Amazon
18 May 2014
  • Summary: The fridge/freezer is great, but the handles will not last. Be prepared to buy replacement handles, and often. They are not cheap either - about US$18 each, plus shipping. I would expect to be able to lift this fridge by the handles when it is full, but they broke when I moved an empty fridge. Whynter don't give two hoots and simply refer you to their website where you can order replacements.

The right answer

George F Vaughn, Amazon
1 May 2014
  • Summary: Very adequate - has been in continuous use for over a year. Can be used as a freezor OR a refrigerator (not both at the same time). Temperature is selectable within 1 degree F, seems to hold temp within two degrees. Recommend not leaving it in direct sunlight. I picked this over several very similar competing products and would bey again.

DO NOT BUY THIS FREEZER

Joe, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: Plastic handles broke very soon after purchase with the freezer empty. Freezer sat for six months and when I got back to the boat the PLASTIC HINGES broke. After repeated calls to customer service they stated that I was out of the one year warranty and they were sorry. I have only used the freezer for less than six months. They also stated that they knew the plastic handles and hinges were a problem, but again they were "sorry.

Whynter FM-85G 85-Quart Portable Refrigerator/Freezer

Grillmaster, Amazon
2 November 2013
  • Summary: I waited to write this review until I had some experience with the product. Have now used it for five different trips dry camping with ten to fourteen people. Each time I used it as a freezer. I have to admit I am extremely impressed with its performance! It usually runs about eighteen hours off of a 100 amp hour deep cycle battery plugged into directly with 12 volt. This allows me to recharge the battery via my generator for approximately 4hrs daily.

I rely heavily on this deep freeze...

John Dent, Amazon
21 October 2013
  • Summary: You can't go wrong with this deep freeze. It runs on 12/120 volts, so it's ideal for the basement of my motor home. It has not skipped a beat in almost 2 years of use. I highly recommend it.

Amazing as fridge or freezer

Laura S., Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: I needed a powered cooler for the truck, and after hunting around found this one and ordered it. It's a fabulous full-featured refrigerator/freezer. Whether on AC power or DC from the lighter socket in the truck, it runs as you'd expect. It's also pretty quiet. Some people may balk at the price, but I have to say so far this has proved to be a great investment.

After spending 3 long weeks in the hospital- went home and began a PBD (Vegan diet) based on the regiment of the book: "The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle" (EXCELLENT BOOK!) Being on this diet requires lots of veggies/beans/fruits/soy products/flax seed and nuts etc etc.
