Summary: We bought this very freezer in 1991, and it's still going! It was just what we needed back in '91, and it continues to please us. We are a two-person family, and it is perfect for us. While it is manual defrost, with just a hair dryer it is defrosted in no time. I'm almost thinking I should buy another now as a spare...just in case!!!
Summary: about a month ago replaced a 30 year old Kenmore 6cu ft freezer with this Sanyo 5 cu ft as we are trying to improve energy efficiency of our older appliances. our old freezer was front opening and almost the same physical size as a dishwasher (we needed another front opening freezer because of existing wall mounted cabinets above its space in our laundry room).
Summary: i am very pleased with not only with the freezer but the handling of my order and the very nice people at my store when i went to it up.now i wish i could buy gift cards the same way.ie. ship to store.my daughter and grandchildren live accross country from me and i would love to be able to just go online and have a card waiting for them.please let me no if you can arrange this in the near future.
