We are in the market for a 21-22 cu.ft. chest freezer and would like some feedback. Has anybody bought a 21-22 cu.ft. chest freezer in the last 3-4 years that they've been very pleased with....good performance with no problems? There is an appliance sale going on that we would like to take advantage of...it ends on the 13th.

Thanks for the feedback!

I don't have any recommendation re brand (other than to look for an energy efficient model), but having always had a chest freezer, good interior storage is key. Most freezers seem to offer one or perhaps two sliding baskets. I like lightweight wire baskets (although cardboard boxes work as well) on the bottom of the freezer to keep things organized, and then as many sliding top baskets as I can fit for the top layer. Makes it much easier to find things. Some folks are good at keeping an in/out inventory, but I've never had much success with that. Makes sense, I just never kept up with it.

In 1971 we bought a Cold Spot chest freezer that was at least 20 years old. Plugged it in and it ran for at least ten more years. We moved and left it in the basement because the new owners wanted it. Besides, it was too big to haul around.

We replaced the freezer in 1981 with a Kenmore (Sears...the Cold Spot was also made by Sears). That one was also in the basement and we did some remodeling and removed the outside access to the basement. It was perfect until we retired in 2005 and discovered it would not fit going up the stairs, so it too got left behind.

We now have a small chest freezer and a large side-by-side. We like the side-by-side for ease of finding things and the small chest for items we will use quicker. In the old chests we found things that were placed there several years before and forgotten. The Kenmore had three baskets that slid around.

Now it is difficult to find a 'Made in the USA' freezer and most are manufactured in two or three Chinese factories no matter the brand. So it really makes little difference the brand any more.

Concur. There are a few made in the USA, but I have not found quality superior to Korean products. http://www.usstuff.com/refridg... Kenmore is a rebadged Whirlpool. Have had good luck over the years with Frigidaire refrigeration products. Most of the old companies have gone into the sunset. Crosley, Norge, Kelvinator etc.

Well, yesterday I re-evaluated things and decided to go the 15-cu.ft. size. We have an older 20+ year old side-by-side that we got from my mother-in-law in 2001. It is a RCA brand. My mother-in-law most likely bought it from a furniture/appliance store. It has worked flawlessly all these years. Well, the data label is still on it and the "fresh food" compartment is stated as being 14.93-cu.ft. After looking at that compartment we felt comfortable with the size. It will also be easier in providing a spot for it to sit. Thus, I punched the button on the 15-cu.ft. Whirlpool (no temp alarm) last night. With the freezer compartment of the side-by-side refrigerator this will give us a little over 23-cu.ft. of freezer space. Should be room enough for our fledgling garden, deer meat, ice cream, and frozen pizza. Big Grin

Whirlpool, from what I could tell, has had a good repair record over the last few years...hopefully that will continue. But, there again, it's one of those "I read it on the internet." things. Rolling my eyes. We've had good results with WP products through the years and hoping that trend will continue. I did opt for a 3-year extended warranty...used the sale price savings to buy the warranty. Not sure if it was worth it or not, but I can fix a washing machine or dryer but I don't do refrigeration work. The smaller freezer will also have a smaller compressor on it...something that I wish wasn't so, but it is what it is. Confused

Dillard, you are absolutely correct in all the brands being mostly re-branded from just a few manufacturers. I think I mentioned elsewhere that my father sold large appliances in his business for many years. Kelvinator and Speedqueen were the brands he sold...lots of chest (deep) freezers, refrigerators, stoves, and a few dryers. There are still some old parts laying here and there in the old store...those things are made of *heavy* metal...not the thin stuff they use nowadays. I can remember the old wringer washers sitting in the showroom. Smiling He sold a lot of rural families living on back dirt roads...many appliances were installed via a drop cord light socket in a room...power company specs when the houses were wired following them getting a cresote pole in their yard was for one drop cord and one base plug per room. That was a very, very different time from what we live in today...in many ways a much better time, but in other ways not so good.

Confused Well, the freezer search continues. Seems there was a small issue with the freezer's lid as it sat close to 1/2" in from the chest on one end. The lid part and the chest part of the handle/latch was out-of-line about that much, too.

Lowe's was very understanding about it and only maybe three days later delivered a replacement. It was further out-of-line than the original. D'Oh! I let'em take both of them back. My concern wasn't so much cosmetic as it was functional...with the lid inset so much that also meant the gasket was that far off of where it was designed to rest at...there was a formed "lip" in the trim in that area. I was worried about the gasket's seal being compromised over time being as it wasn't entirely sealing in the proper area.

So now the sale is over, we've got no freezer, and I've gotta keep a watch on the credit card to be sure proper credit comes through. Gee, gimme a break!!!! Sighing!

Ed, it seems to me that they should still give you the sale price -- even if you decided to get a different model -- considering none of that was due to any fault of yours! What a PITA!!

Well, on the bright side of things...the garage got a much needed cleaning (somewhat) out of the deal. Whistling Hilarious!

This experience has caused me to naturally look at other brands. I'm not sure that Lowes would "extend" the sale to me or not. It might be worth inquiring about it. Or, I might just wait until Black Friday or for another sale and see what's offered. I talked it over with my wife before sending the freezer back. Pea season is over with and that was one thing that was crowding us in the side-by-side freezer compartment. Deer season is coming up and I do hope to get some fresh deer meat delivered this year. Drooling We think we can "make do" without the chest freezer for now, though when spring/early-summer gets here we'll hopefully be needing some room for more vegetables. By then we definitely hope to have a freezer in place. In the mean time, I plan on visiting some stores and doing an eyeball on fit-n-finish of the different chest freezers. Sadly, they don't stock all of the brands and models so many are "special order". D'Oh!

Right now, I just hope all the credit comes through without a hitch... Thumbs up

Home Depot has Maytag, Whirlpool and Frigidaire in that size class. Maytag is owned by Whirlpool. Ge is carried by several vendors. Bit more expensive but don't know if that makes them any better. noticed that White Westinghouse still offers a freezer. Only experience is a Westinghouse refrigerator in the early 60's worked ok but had a piston compressor that was very noisy.

Looks like I got another duplicate post, ah well...

Dillard, I've noticed the same thing about GE...higher priced (sometimes a good bit) but is it worth it? We've used Whirlpool appliances for years now and have always been satisfied but the quality-control issue has us wondering now. Maybe there was a bad run of freezers where the jig was off a bit for the lid. Confused

Lowes is 30 miles (Troy) from us and Home Depot is 60 miles (Montgomery). We'll be in Montgomery next month so we might go by Home Depot and see what they have. Might also go by Lowes and see how the lid on their floor model Whirlpool looks.

Having worked in manufacturing many years ago, I discovered that when owned by stockholders, budget week rolls around...QC is ignored. This was in musical instruments, but I'm sure it applies to most manufacturing. We knew this stuff would be returned, but quotas had to please the stockholders. Big business at it's worst.

Well, the ancient relic of an *RCA* side-by-side refrigerator that I mentioned at the start of the thread has finally given up (half of) the ghost. It appears the refrigerator side of it has stopped cooling. We've lost a good bit of stuff in the fridge but thankfully the peas, okra, deer meat, and other not-so-important<grin> stuff are ok in the freezer...moving that to another freezer down at my mother's old house.

I'm in the same boat as last time in figuring out what to buy...I haven't got a clue. Anybody got suggestions? I look at reviews and don't know which ones are bald-faced lies and which ones are honest reviews.<sigh> Anybody want to put their 2-cents worth in on this? I still haven't come up with a chest freezer, either. Crying

On a bright note it got up to 73F today!!! But, then it's supposed to freeze again Monday-week. D'Oh!

First link is a general overview of how well brands do as far as service calls. Second link is top 10 chest freezers along with the last link. Frigidaire is a brand that ranks high regularly on various links I was looking at earlier.

Thanks Amanda! I looked at the Yale page and it pretty much reinforces what some repair guys told me...go with the Whirlpool family. Right now I've gotta concentrate on a refrigerator being as I've got three coolers sitting in the kitchen right now. Thankfully the freezer compartment is still working although I have transferred some stuff to the my mother's old house. We can make out a few days so not in a panic mode...but, Lowe's does have a sale on that ends Wednesday so if I buy from them (only big box store that will deliver in my area) I need to do it in the next day or two. I've got a couple of smaller places to look at, too. One problem I'm running into is the doorway...only 29" wide. This is the "best path" doorway. Another doorway coming from the back haul is 31" wide...but it is very tight quarters in the hall and I don't know if they could make the turn to enter the kitchen. When we moved the old RCA side-by-side in we had to remove the doors on it and it was a *close* fit.<sigh>

Ah well, off to visit a few shops...I need to be working but we've gotta get some refrigeration going, too. I've always lived in a rural area but when it comes to purchasing things and different services it can require a good bit of driving time. First stop is about 20 miles away...then about 50 miles away...then???

Off to the races...

Wow. I hope I did the right thing. I found a refrigerator that I liked, much similar to our old faithful one that gave the ghost up. I found it an one of the power company appliance stores (20 miles away) but they only had it in black. Confused But, they could have one shipped in in one to two weeks. Whirlpool side-by-side 24cuft. And a biggie for me is that the temperature controls were analog KNOBS rather than an electronic touchpad. If it had been white I'd have got it there and then, but... I went on to shop two more places and then headed to another town (another 50 miles one-way) that had a Lowe's. I found a white Whirlpool there that appears to be an updated(?) model, but...it had touchpad controls. Sad In my years I've learned that electronic bells-and-whistles require *circuit boards* which fail and which are usually very expensive. I like K.I.S.S. when it comes to things like this. But, Lowe's didn't have one with the beloved knobs. As I'm walking out of Lowe's I remember the "clearance row" that they usually put older or maybe scratch-n-dent appliances in. I walk down it and lo-and-behold!!!...there sat the exact white Whirlpool model that I was looking for!!! Hurray! Then I look closer...and it's got a "SOLD" tag on it. Crying So I find a "store associate" and get him to check to see if another one of these is available. He see's none at any stores and suggests I "call around" to see if one might have one "not showing up". Confused Seeing this one was on clearance and at a reduced price, right there from Lowe's I called the power company store that had the black one and inquired if that was absolutely the bottom-dollar price they would take for one...I was assured that this was absolutely the lowest price this model *ever* gets to and that I'd never see it this low again. Sad I leave there kind of feeling down...a wasted day, no progress, blah, blah, blah. Anyhow, I was fast finding out that I like shopping for appliances about as much as I like shopping for shoes...zilch, nada, big-zeroieee love for either one.

So's....I get home and hop on the computer. Plug in the model number and pull up Lowe's website. The website shows the refrigerator is indeed on clearance *and* available!! I went ahead got it in the cart with the 5-year extended warranty and the price is right at $500 less Blinking than the power company!!!!!!!!! I really had rather have the power company's service department in my corner but for a $500 difference...I can take a delayed wait, I presume...we're having to wait now, so we have experience doing without a large refrigerator. I clicked on the confirmation button. Lowe's, too, said it would take from seven to fourteen days for delivery. I've already received a call scheduling the delivery for February 7. Thumbs up I'm hoping and praying I made the right decision!!!!

But, I still don't like shopping for appliances...or shoes. nodding
Ed

ETA: Hopefully the doors fit right.<sigh>

@IntheSwamp Wow, what a ride! I just read this entire thread and feel for you!

While reading, I was thinking about how I finally stopped wanting to deal with getting stuff out of a chest freezer and switched to uprights from then on. It was just a pain to have to bend over the sides of the deep chest freezer, and stuff at the bottom would be forgotten or a major pain to get to - always having to move stuff out of the freezer to get to what was at the bottom. It was so nice to have an upright that wasn't so deep you couldn't get to stuff and didn't have to wrench my back anymore.

I'm now limited, as a renter in an apartment, to just a small freezer above my refrigerator. So, I've gotten back into canning :-)

I hope this fridge is a winner for you! They're so expensive now - glad you got $500 off - wahoo! Hurray!

Thanks, y'all. We've still got a little over a week to go, but we're actually making it pretty good. The freezer still works so we have ice and frozen goods handy. I brought home a little 4cu.ft. refrigerator from the shop, a "Haier" brand. I bought it several years ago. I had bought another, more popular branded small refrigerator and it wouldn't hardly get things down to 40F cranked all the way down. I returned it to Wallyworld and bought the less-expensive Haier. I think the controls go from 0-10 and I've got it sitting on 5 right now and a few things get a touch of frost on them still!!! If anybody ever needs a small, cheap refrigerator this one has done a fine job in the heat of the shop and now here at the house. I've also got an old Kool Mate 36 thermoelectric cooler running out in the garage for food and drink not frequently used.

I've actually been thinking on whether to hang onto the old RCA beast. With the freezer working fine and the ice-maker spitting out ice I've thought about putting it in the garage. It's 8.65cu.ft. of freezer space including the ice-maker...so figure a solid 7cu.ft of freezer storage. Otherwise we'll probably be buying a 15cu.ft. chest freezer a bit later. One thing is I don't think the old RCA will be as energy efficient as a new chest freezer and who knows how long it will last....six weeks....six years....sixteen years...???? I've got a spot I could put it (where we had planned on putting the chest freezer). Or...will it just end up being a piece of junk that I'll be calling the scrap-metal guy to come get?

Whatever the case, it will be nice to get a large refrigerator back in the house...cooking is kind of limited in that there's really nowhere to store leftovers (unless we freeze them) and we really don't have room to store extra things to cook a day or two in the future. Yeah, it's nice roughing it, but it'll be nice to get somewhat back to normal. :)

Ed, IMO you can't go wrong with having a fridge in the garage. We have a really old one -- from Montgomery Ward, at least 30 years old and probably more -- that's saved our bacon (literally, LOL) several times when the much newer side-by-side, ice and water dispensing fridge in the kitchen has crapped out on us. I'm sure the old one isn't very energy efficient but it just keeps going... I use the fridge freezer mostly for meat from the grocery store and use our chest freezer for stashing all the garden produce, zucchini bread, etc. The garage fridge also houses beer and pop, carrots and beets from the garden in the crisper drawers, and/or overflow from the kitchen fridge (especially around the holidays or if we're otherwise planning some kind of party). Writing that all down made me start thinking that I shouldn't need all that food storage -- but I only grocery shop every couple of weeks so maybe it isn't that unreasonable. Shrug!
