Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Masum 11/19/2020

I like GE appliances. I have two Ge air conditioners (quite mode). So, this is my 3rd appliances from GE. My wife and me were waiting for few months. But may be for pandemic it was out of stock. Finally we got it. We are happy. Nice design and silent. Easy to install. Energy efficient like my GE air conditioners. According to their specifications annual energy cost $26. A little bit more than $2 per month. This is one of the main reason of choosing GE appliances. Thanks!

Mama llama 71 11/19/2020

So far so good. This little freezer fits exactly what we needed. We wanted a compact chest freezer to store overflow groceries so we could make less trips to the store during the pandemic. It's awesome for those nights I don't feel like cooking I can just grab a frozen dinner. Loaded it with quick snacks and meals for the family. So convenient!

GREAT LITTLE GARAGE READY FREEZER!

epanema 11/18/2020

This freezer may look small, but wow it holds a lot and maintains a great temperature. Very impressed as we were looking for a space saver freezer and it had to be garage ready, as most freezers are not. A bonus it is a GE brand!

peanutsmom 11/17/2020

I haven't had it for long. It is nice and compact, fits in a small space in my garage. Keeps the food frozen. That's what it's supposed to do. I won't know how it functions in the summer heat for another 8 months. Hopefully it will last as long as the freezer at my old house. I had that for about 20 years and it was still running when I moved.

Pandemic freezer

Robert 19 11/17/2020

This was exactly what we were looking for. Just the right size for two people. We are now able to shop less for food and take advantage of the few sales we have seen on fresh and frozen food items. I was actually surprised to get one. I started looking for a small freezer when the pandemic started and finally got one six months later.

Caradi 11/17/2020

This freezer is for the garage and is perfect for extra freezer space. I have a small size by dice fridge and the freezer is so narrow that I needed more space. Thais freezer takes up little room and I can now shop for sale items and freeze. I wish I purchased this sooner.

Perfect solution

Rara18 11/11/2020

This is the perfect size for our 3-person household, and it's small profile and garage-readiness/climate tolerance makes it perfectly suitable to for our home. The open back (where it looks like there should be a small panel) doesn't seem to be a problem, but I may put some screening to keep any critters out; only complaint is I wish the basket was a bit bigger with narrower slots (small things fall through). Very happy!

Changed My Life

Jarmin 11/10/2020

During a pandemic, is there anything better than having the perfect size freezer to store extra provisions? I think not. It's allowed me to bake, slow cook and roast everything imaginable - saving it all for snowy winter days. It's only drawback is that it's not self-defrosting.

Quiet and Works well

BBear 11/10/2020

I love this freezer. It is virtually silent which is great as I have it in my home office. It keeps a steady temperature (I put a thermometer in side) and it holds a lot of food. I am pleasantly surprised at the size of freezer. It is not too large, so it fits well in a small room, yet the inside is large enough to hold large bags of vegetables with plenty of space for trays of prepared foods, roasts, whole chickens etc etc and it is not even ⅔ full! This was just what I needed to free up the freezer in my fridge. It was a very good value for the price.

Great Capacity & Runs Quiet

Deedee56 11/5/2020

I absolutely love this freezer! I plugged it in for 12 hours overnight & filled it to capacity the next day. It holds 500 lbs. of food which cuts down on trips to the grocery store. It runs so quiet that I had to put my ear against the side to make sure it was running.& best of all, the energy costs are only $26/year. You can't beat that! One of the best purchases I've ever made!

lbeck13 11/3/2020

Picked this freezer based on online reviews. Glad it comes with leveling feet since it is in the basement. I wish I could have gotten a larger size but I just don't have the room. It cooled down very quickly and now I just have to figure out an organization system I would recommend this product. Very roomy and seems like it will do the job.

This freezer is perfect for that extra space that you'd like for all those frozen goodies that just do not fit in your side by side refrigerator in your kitchen! This freezer is garage ready and is easy to move around if the need arises. So far it is maintaining temperature and the items are solidly frozen. Wonderful freezer and at a reasonable price.
