While freezers take the checkered flag in the 'Most Boring Appliance Imaginable' category, it's mine and it's new, so here it is, LOL.

It's an LG-made GE; frost-free with glass shelves. Bit of a plain Jane, but does its job quietly, thank God, as it's housed in what was intended as the second bedroom in my apartment. I use as a home office.

Aside: Upon query, owner of the local dealership (who also installed it) said he, so far, has no complaints about new parent company Haier.

Freezers > Fridges

IMO.



Cooling appliances basicly only have to check 3 boxes: Quiet, efficent and durable.

If a washer fails you can happily live on for a week, if a freezer just suddenly fails you usually have to act in 24h.




We recently bought an A+++ efficency frost free freezer to replace the still working 20 year old chest freezer of my grandma as she can't bend down as well after her fractured rib.



And what else can one expect besides noticing a cooling appliance as little as possible.

Freezers are a boring appliance until they quit working correctly....or die...and panic sets in to creatively save hundreds of dollars worth of food in a very narrow window of time.

Congrats on the purchase and may it bless you with lots of mundane, drama free operation for years to come.

Nice freezer ---question- how big is it?  Have a relative looking for a moderately small freezer, not a lot out there.

Matt- 14.1 cu. ft. capacity. Dimensions are 28" wide x 62" high x 32" deep. Had to take the door to the room off hinges in order to get it in. Oddly, the doorway to enter the apartment is wheelchair accessible; doors to each room within the apartment are not. Makes no sense.

Congratulations Eugene.  Very nice.  Does this mean you're doing more cooking than you anticipated when moving to the apartment and relying solely on the kitchen fridge/freezer?  

 

I was kinda looking at freezers a while back.  I have like a 5 cu. ft. (no more than 7) chest freezer in my laundry room.  There's a spot intentionally laid out for a chest freezer and that's all I've had since 19776 and it's what I grew up with.  I prefer them to the auto defrosting upright due to more stable long-term freezer storage.  (Yes, sometimes, I do have to take quite a bit out to find what I'm looking for that has managed to work its way down to the bottom).  My partner would prefer an upright, auto defrost.  The laundry room location isn't deep enough for an upright freezer.  I did look to see what was out there for upright freezers online and it appeared GE was the only one to specify their freezers are suited for garage usage, other than I think Whirlpool's Gladiator line.  And he'd rather the freezer be in the garage, but I only have one wall outlet and it's GFI-based and I won't have a freezer on that.

Bobó I had two refrigerator-freezers (one in the kitchen upstairs; one on the lower level) as well as a freezer in the climate-controlled garage back at the house. I like to create make-ahead meals which are frozen in portions in those ZipLock containers with the blue lids. Iím often busy in the evenings, so being able to grab one of those, pop it in the microwave and have a nice supper is really convenient. I like to freeze batches of sloppy joe and taco meat, too.

Also missed being able to stock up on sale items like chicken, pork roasts/chops, beef roasts and ground beef. I use a lot of bags of frozen mixed vegetables, as well. I also like to have individually wrapped pieces of frosted sheet cakes, coffee cake, scones or muffins on hand when people visit or to bring along when going someoneís house for coffee.

I grew up with a manual defrost upright freezer and it was my job to defrost it a couple of times a year. I purchased a chest freezer upon moving to the house in 2002, but grew very tired of searching for items and having to defrost it. Eventually replaced it with a big Frigidaire self-defrosting upright and was happy with it, although as you mentioned, the repeated freeze/defrost cycles take their toll on the food within. I generally use foods within about six months, so itís not a big issue for me. Were I to purchase part of a cow or pig, which requires longer storage, then a chest freezer would be the way to go.

The new GE is much quieter than was the Frigidaire. My home office (where the freezer is housed) is directly across the hall from my bedroom, so I appreciate its hushed operation.
