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.

Just what I needed

Van2020 9/24/2020

I needed a small chest freezer that I could put in my garage. I live in the southwest and so it can get warm and so far this freezer has withstood the temperatures in my garage. My only recommendation is a better temperature control gauge located in a more convenient place. I doubt it would add much to the cost to include a interior temperature gauge on the outside of the freezer along with a higher quality control. I can recommend this if your looking for a small unit to supplement the freezer in your home

KMC 1 9/23/2020

Freezer seems to work great and holds plenty - waiting to see how it handles cold weather as it is supposed to be garage ready. Only thing that I did was put a piece of wire screen in back where it was left open to keep mice out in winter - thought it was odd ge would keep an open area on a freezer for garage

Awesome Freezer

pbounds6926 9/21/2020

Having lived in my house for over 25 years, I can't believe I waited so long to invest in a small chest type freezer when they are so affordable! But, after careful, consideration I chose the GE 5.0 as the best option. I do have other GE products in my kitchen, and have always, believed strongly in the quality and workmanship or GE products as a whole. So far the GW freezer has worked perfectly. After initially unboxing and installing, it took < 3 hours to cool below freezing, so I could transfer from the freezer of my kitchen refrigerator., so far backing the thermostat off to the middle position, it is still maintaining a chill 0 degrees. It will definitely help in buying more freezer items, so that is a plus as well, I want to buy a second top-level basket, just having a difficult time finding the OEM basket for the freezer, a lot of knockoffs but not an original GE OEM basket. Other than that I am totally satisfied with the GE freezer. You won't go wrong purchasing this freezer! I have it in my mud-room off the front hallway that is also connected to the garage and front hallway where my computer server, security system, and Water heater closet is located.

Valerie44 9/20/2020

I have only had my freezer a few days but am very pleased with it. The size is excellent for the space I had available. It is very quiet and starting freezing (came to temperature) right away. I plan to use it as an overflow for excess frozen groceries and for my prepared meals. The prepared meals aspect is so appealing because it makes preparing dinner a breeze.

Frost buildup

unhappy owner 9/17/2020

I like the size of the freezer. Perfect compact size for storing extra food. My chest freezer has been having excessive frost buildup since the beginning of use. It was initially set in the middle temperature, then I lower it to low. It is now 3/4 full. I don't use it much, as I use it to store frozen meat. Only open it once every few days when I take the meat out. Temperature is good, as the meats are well frozen. It just frost up. I tried contacting customer service. They responded with an open case, but no one ever contacted me back since. Poor customer service. If it weren't the froze buildup, I'd have love it.

Very light weight. Cooled down very quickly when started. Checked temp and only need setting about 1/3 of scale for freezer to be at frozen storage temp. Really nice freezer. Well worth the money over a big retail store. Waited almost 6 months for this to come in. Well worth the wait.

GE Freezer

Tim0019 9/2/2020

Product was very easy to set up. Runs especially quiet...green light at the bottom of the front panel is very helpful as it lets us know the freezer is operating. Holds plenty of frozen food for us. We like the drain feature if we ever need to defrost. The freezer definitely frees up space in our regular GE refrigerator and allows us to plan ahead for family visits or to just have supplies on hand. Can't figure out why we didn't buy one much earlier!
