    Interior Features

  • The capacity of this freezer holds roughly 175 lbs. of frozen goods. It presents just the right size of storage for typical big families. This kind of freezer is suitable for those who like buying in bulk and for those who love cooking.

  • Its removable basket is useful for small items such as frozen peas, herbs, or frozen stock. It allows organizing of food stocks. Food items that have shorter shelf life could be placed in the basket for easy retrieval.
  • To keep food longer, the freezer should have a stable freezing temperature. This freezer temperature can be easily set using the control knob. There are 7 levels of temperature for this unit. Once the temperature is selected, the automatic thermostat will maintain that temperature until the user manually adjusts it again.

      Exterior Features

  • The mechanical temperature control of the freezer is placed at the bottom front part of its cabinet. It comes with a signal light, which indicates if the power is ON. The temperature control is actually a dial labeled with 0-7. The dial can be set to turn the power OFF.
  • Cleaning and defrosting is done by simply pulling the plug from the Easy-Access Defrost Drain and placing a tray under it. This system saves the user from the old fashioned sponge-and-bucket defrosting.
  • The flat-top of the freezer lid is useful as spare kitchen space. Its 28 3/8 wide body and flat-back make the unit easy to fit in any corner or against a wall. The freezer should be placed in a well-ventilated area and must be used only as a freestanding appliance. This product comes only in White.
