    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.

    Great size for two people

    PAWat 7/14/2022

    Downsized to this one after much larger freezer died. Good size for two people but plenty of extra room for when we have family and friends come to stay. Like the garage capability as it is often very hot in garage due to South Carolina summers

    Rezlrezl 6/21/2022

    I wanted a little larger freezer, but I trust Consumer Report's ratings and they recommended this size to meet my size range. I'm looking forward to longevity, great performance, and energy savings. Thank you, GE, a brand I love to support.

    No Cover in the back panel !

    jessieY 6/6/2022

    I found only old model has the back panel cover, not for new model anymore. Also, this small freezer came with one basket and I want to purchase another basket but the basket cost $94.30 + tax, that cost me more then $100 !!!!!!!!!! any other company basket cost around $30, Why GE charge very expensive price for just a basket!!!!

    Yavapai 5/29/2022

    We've been waiting 3 months for this to be back in stock. It's light in weight to move/install and fits perfectly in a small corner of our garage. Highest Consumer Reports rating and perfect for a couple or small family.

    Great Small Chest Freezer!

    KelleeM 4/15/2022

    We recently found a need for additional freezer space and began researching our options. This five cubic feet model meets our needs perfectly. We have it in our basement for easy year round access, and it adds just the right amount of additional freezer capacity for us. We no longer have to worry about room for stocking up on frozen items. Highly recommend this model for one or two person households!

    Hneely 3/5/2022

    I had a large upright freezer for 31 years before it was no longer repairable and I bought this freezer because it is smaller and I needed less freezer space than before. It is the perfect size for my needs and was at a price that was reasonable.

    Works well after 2 months

    Matt12543246 2/26/2022

    Freezer works well, holding at -10 deg. F At medium setting. We got this because our fridge freezer stopped working at below freezing ambient temperatures. It appears that this freezer is working to 0 deg F ambient temperatures as stated on their product specs. Minimal frost buildup but definitely has some.

    Great small freezer

    lindsdar 1/13/2022

    Bought this as a second freezer for my apartment. Fits right inside my kitchen nicely and isn't noisy at all. I like that it has a power light on it so I can ensure it's working. Popped a thermometer in there once it got loaded with food and the bottom/middle reads -3 while the top near the basket reads 5. I have it on the 4th setting, so we will probably turn it up a bit, but everything is frozen! Works great.

    This freezer does what it is supposed to do... keep the food frozen! It is also energy efficient and came at a good price from a local appliance store - so I was able to support small business and can be assured of good service if and when I need it.

    I like the size of the freezer and the price. But the lid doesn't seal and I find drops of water which become ice. I would recommend the freezer, but with the comment that the lid does not seal properly.

    This freezer fits my needs quite well. It fits into small spaces and has plenty of food storage space. Easy defrosting and temp control with light. Great all around freezer!

    Perfect little chest freezer.

    If you need a chest freezer but are limited on space this is the one. Also temperature range is a must for cold garages.

    Nice Chest Freezer

    freezer_user 12/15/2021

    This is a nice freezer. Its size is good enough for our family. It does not take big space, but has good volume inside. But most importantly it does the job.
