This is the perfect size freezer for a small family. I love the shelves and the way the compartments can be made as small or as large as you want them. The baskets are so convenient. I'm able to slide them to one side,to find what I'm looking for. It is exactly the size and type freezer I wanted. Also,it was great to be able to have it shipped to the store in my hometown and be able to pick it up there. The time it took to get the freezer was amazing! I love Kenmore products and this was a GREAT deal! I will buy more kitchen products from Sears,when I need them.
We needed another freezer for our home grown chickens, and this fit the bill perfectly. Not huge, but just right and keeps everything frozen rock hard.

This ***** gets well below freezing cold. It is small but with the dividers it is easy to organize and find what your looking for. Did have a 19 cubic foot and very pleased with the down sized one.
I am disappointed that this freezer cost more than three times the freezer I am replacing, that it is also 2.5 cu ft smaller than the freezer I am replacing, that my annual energy savings is estimated to be $20 or less per year, and that it's life expectancy is only 7 to 10 years. My original freezer is over 30 years old and runs like a champ! The only thing wrong with the freezer I am replacing is that the interior lid broke and a replacement can not be found. I don't hold out much hope of this new freezer being a quality product since it's made of the same materials and only a 1 year warranty!

I first plugged this in on Thursday. Right away I noticed the compressor was noisier than our existing unit. If I were to have this in the house it would be intolerable. Fortunately it will be in the garage for now and due to noise most likely will be there in any new house we may purchase. It also does not seem as stable on the temperature as our old unit but I will give it a few days to see if it settles down. I have a call into Sears for service about noise but they can't get here until Friday. This is 8 days from the date of installation. I don't know what happened but Sears service is sure not what it used to be where I could get service within a business day or two (including Saturdays). A design flaw that has major ramifications involves the baskets keeping the lid cracked open if not pushed fully to each side. This is caused by the light in the lid and really needs to be addressed as it allows for cold air to exit and additional interior icing if you don't notice.
Tends to run most of the time keeping it at -5 degrees F, with the cold **** all the way cold (some days I check and it is -10, so it isn't very consistent). It has as much frost after a year as my old Kenmore had after 20 years (never defrosted it) so I predict I will some day have to defrost this one. The good news is that it is still working (not a DOA) and it hasn't spontaneously thawed all the food in there!
I bought this freezer over 2 years ago. I meant to write a review sooner but it just didn't turn-out that way. Anyway, I just want others to know that I don't have a single complaint worth voicing here, only praise. I searched everywhere for an affordable frost-free chest but apparently they only exsist in uprights. It runs so quiet, I don't know when it ever turns on. I only had to defrost it once and just because we were moving. We live in a humid climate and there was just a little ice at the top around the lid. We keep it indoors. It was so easy to defrost for the move. Its so economical on energy costs. For those who still don't understand why the lock wouldn't keep theives out, let me suggest it wasn't built to keep them out. Apparently, It was built to keep small curious children from getting trapped inside an empty freezer. I think that's the law now, isn't it? All freezers are built with this kind of child-proof lock.

We went from an upright freezer in our garage to this chest-style one. It makes our garage feel so much more open. We can now use the top of the freezer as a folding surface for our laundry (washer & dryer are also located in the garage), and there is room for a cabinet above the freezer to give us more storage space. We were considering the larger version of this freezer but bought this one to be sure it would fit nicely in the space we had. I am pleased with how much space there is in the freezer. I love the dividers and top baskets to keep our frozen goods organized. Left one star off because the freezer cannot defrost itself.
