Product Reviews
Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy access and quiet Moved up from a chest type freezer to this upright. So much easier to access our frozen goods and the light inside helps a lot. Quiet and seems to keep food cold without freezer burn. 10/29/13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quiet, easy to use, interior light, Energy Star we have not had this freezer very long but it is working well for us. the interior is a major bonus. I expected the door to have a lock but it does not, this does make it faster to get in and out of the freezer. It is very quiet, we do not even notice when it is on. 4/23/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality, perfect size and best of all it is quiet! I searched a very long time to find the right freezer, we wanted a manual freezer as we wanted to reduce the amount of freezer burn you get with the frost-free. so far the bread is not covered in ice crystals and thaws out tasting fresh. This is important for just 2 people who don't want to waste fresh breads/baked goods. because it gets old by the time we could finish it . I wanted a Whirlpool as this brand is reputable and appliance repair service techs reccomentd this brand and I have had the best experience with past Whirlpool appliances. I have plenty of room now and can take advantage of buying quanity of fruits. vegetables when in season. Freezer has a bright enough light, I do wish it had a lock on the door though. I don't think it is necessary for the digital temps and alarms.sometimes simple is better. i am happy so far with this purchase. 4/14/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely would reccomend this product. I would absolutely recommend thusv frezzer to family and friends actually I have already recomended to family members as they have seen it and loved it's available spacec and get this the best thing was rge fact it had a light.The only thing tgat was kibd of a disapointment was the lack of available accessories (baskets to hang under the shelves... if that's because of the design that's understandable) 4/15/13
