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.

Works well

Sage Dave 3/31/2021

Set up was simple. Works well. Needs a rear panel to cover the cutout exposing the mechanics and electrical components. It's got the screw holes and power cord grommet for one, but customer service says it was removed for cooling. I call Bravo Sierra on that. But, it does keep food frozen.

Traci C 3/28/2021

The freezer works well & is a great size for two people. Even though the back of the freezer is against the wall I still prefer a cover plate in the back where the cord & motor are.

AHS49 3/17/2021

Purchased as a back up and checks all boxes. Quiet, effective, efficient, and with just the right number of features (power light, easy drainage and temperature controls) for us. Now let's see how durable GE built this freezer.

Perfect size for 2 people

leoflusa 3/14/2021

So far so good. only have had it for a few weeks but its so ideal for 2 people. We have a french door (small 19 cubic counter depth) and just not enough freezer space. We usually shop at Sams club and we like to food prep for the week and portion out meats since we both like to cook. We have a small apartment and this unit doesn't take up a lot of space at all. So far we are very happy with it.

Great steady freeze. Very quiet. Great deep-space. Only draw back on the settings dial has no numbers on an "exact" temp settings preferred. No inside thermometer to let you know how cold the freezer is. So you just guessing degrees.

FDNY 3/3/2021

I purchased the 5cu. ft. online but when I saw it in person I really believed it to be 7cu. ft. forgetting I bought the 5cu. ft. At first very after turning it on for the first 24 hours and it was extremely silent. I also enjoy the fact that it is very quiet.

Just the freezer we needed

MrsRAW3 3/2/2021

This freezer is great for our garage. We have not had it through our summer yet, but it definitely helped over the holidays, starting around Halloween. It has allowed us to maximize meat deliveries and gifts of breads and sweets that we couldn't consume when they arrived. The basket is nice for holding items like Popsicles. The depth makes it easy to put a 16lb turkey in there. I this freezer so much, my mom asked for one for her garage, too.

Mostly great

Bob48 2/10/2021

This freezer is working well for us. It has more space than I expected. One issue we've had is that even though it is relatively quiet, it transmits that noise through the walls and floor to the adjacent rooms. I solved that by putting a thick piece of carpet pad and carpet under it. It would have been great if it had come with sound absorbing pads for the feet of the freezer so I didn't have to improvise. The other thing I wish it had was more than one freezer basket, even if that was an option that I needed to pay for. I'm looking for baskets that will work.

This freezer is in our kitchen and we were concerned it might be noisy but, is so quiet you don't know it's running until you look at the light on the front, which verifies it's operating. So nice to have the extra freezer space as my fridge freezer is not big enough for the family.
