This was purchased for storing cold liquor and ice Bags for the hot summer days. The size and price were both perfect, and it's whisper-quiet. So far, I'm extremely pleased with buying this unit. Upon arrival, I immediately switched the door hinge side. I was a bit disappointed to find that most of the destination holes were filled at the factory with styrofoam, tape, and other fillers. Not to much of a let down cant be overly protective. It wasn't a huge deal, but it did add some extra time in switching out the door. Overall, I would definitely recommend this freezer to Those who are renters or havea small family or live in an apartment building. Its nice and small doesnt take up too much space. It's pretty good and worth the buy.

Needed a freezer for an emergency because the old just blew up. Went to rent to own place and they didn't have the brand names I wanted nor the uprights, so I had to settle. I had never heard of this brand name but purchased anyway. It's compact and fit right into the space I had alloted for it. Did some research and this brand has been on the market for a long time, they just don't advertise like other big name brands and the prices are comparable.

Great second freezer

By 

from USA

Comments about Haier 3.5 cu. ft. Chest Freezer #HNCM035E:

I purchased this freezer because I have 3 kids and I was tiered of going to the market 2-3 times a week. Now I go twice a month and pick up milk as needed.

Temperature Control
The temperature does not need to go above the 3 setting year round. Does not use a lot of electricity, I hardly notice a dent in the bill.

Capacity
It holds many small things and helps tremendously during the holidays for a place for the ham or turkey. I usually go to a wholesale club and stock up on the frozen things like ice cream and meat.

Ease of Cleaning
i give an 8 only because to clean it you must defrost it and to do that it needs to be empty. I usually do it in the winter.

Durability
Had it for 3 years and no problems, in fact during hurricane sandy we were without power for 8 days and the freezer with the ice packs already there stayed cold for 6 days. it was nice having milk for my coffee ( french press saved me)

Design
Fits easily into any room I have an apartment so I keep it in one of the bedrooms.

Such a gem...

Comments about Haier 3.5 cu. ft. Chest Freezer #HNCM035E:

We we were looking for extra freezer space since it seems our refrigerator freezer is always full (it's amazing how quickly they become full). This little guy was the perfect fit, the price was just right and it is small enough to sit in the corner and not fill up the whole room. It runs very quietly. The lid is one that you do not have to fight to keep open

Capacity
Be sure that small is what you need before you buy. We bought this to help with the overflow and it is perfect for that size. It fills up quickly especially when you are adding all the prepackaged boxes that frozen items come in now.

Ease of Cleaning
Since you have to manually defrost and clean the sides, it takes some effort. The drain is set up nicely and we have had no problems with cleaning the unit.

Durability
So far so good, it has been in our household for almost a year and running strong.

Design
Only shortcoming I see (and it is only cause I'm short) is that it is too deep for me to reach the bottom to get items. So make sure you have a step stool or either tall family members to come help you out!

Chest Freezer

By 

from USA

Comments about Haier 3.5 cu. ft. Chest Freezer #HNCM035E:

I love my chest freezer! It's the perfect size for my sunroom and I keep ice cream, popcycles, and other items there so that when my grandchildren come to visit, they know just where to look. I know what their favorite items for lunch are, so they just go pick them out themselves.

Temperature Control
The temperature stays the same and everything remains frozen.

Capacity
There's plenty of room for frozen items and not so deep that I can't reach what I need. It has three baskets across the top, so I keep my grandchildren's favorites there so they are easily within their reach.

Ease of Cleaning
If it has to be defrosted, it has a drain at the bottom, then all I have to do is just wipe it clean and dry, let it get cold again, and restock all my goodies.

Durability
It works great and I expect to have it for a long, long time.

Design
I think it looks great in my sunroom next to my brick walI. It doesn't take up a lot of room and actually brightens up the corner.

Saves on space and energy costs.

By 

from Toledo, OH

Comments about Haier 3.5 cu. ft. Chest Freezer #HNCM035E:

The Haier 3.5 cu. ft. Chest Freezer #HNCM035E is a small chest freezer but if you are limited on space, this one definitely doesn’t take up a lot of space. I bought this specific freezer because the store I bought it at was running a special and I got a gift card to help fill it up. Had I made a more rational choice, I may have picked a little larger freezer. I went from having an upright freezer to having this chest freezer and it has been hard to get use to. It does serve our needs but it is more difficult to organize and to locate and get to foods than it is in an upright. One of the pluses though is that it is very energy efficient. And of course also space efficient. I keep a cutting board on top of it and use it for extra counter space. It does keep foods fresh with no freezer burn and I have not had any issues with having to defrost the freezer. If you have a tight budget, this freezer fits the bill. Lower priced to purchase and lower energy costs than a larger or upright freezer.

Great addition to compact fridge.

By 

from Springdale, UT

Comments about Haier 3.5 cu. ft. Chest Freezer #HNCM035E:

This compact freezer is a great solution and addition to my compact refrigerator.The freezers on those things never work.They don't freeze and frost up easily.I searched for something with a reasonable price that I knew wouldn't be so cheap I'd be throwing away money.You get what you pay for.This freezer was the answer.It comes with a lot of different temperature settings.Setting it at one of the lower temperatures does the job for me(4).It has a sizable capacity.It has a little basket where you can store small items.I will say,it sometimes makes a humming sound when cycling on,but nothing bothersome.It's easy to get used to.Compact refrigerators sometimes make my food taste like the refrigerator itself,but I haven't noticed that with this.It has a light on it that tells you whether it's functioning properly.That should come in handy.It's easy to clean and defrost.That's a plus.

A must have for everyone!

Comments about Haier 3.5 cu. ft. Chest Freezer #HNCM035E:

I absolutely love this freezer! The size and capacity of this freezer makes it a great complement to my regular kitchen refrigerator/freezer. I specifically chose this size (3.5cu ft) because I didn't want something too big that would take up a ton of room. This size is perfect; it doesn't have a large footprint, but is spacious enough inside to keep lots of frozen pizzas, ice cream, leftovers...you name it. I am 100% happy with this purchase!

Temperature Control
So far, so good. I've had this product for approximately 2 months and I haven't had a single issue with the temperature. I have several cartons of ice cream, which I keep within easy reach. Even being near the top of the freezer, the ice cream still remains nice and hard. No freeze-thawing with this ice cream!

Capacity
It's not a giant 7cu ft freezer, but that's not what I wanted. I wanted a nice sized freezer with a small footprint that wouldn't fill up the entire room it was in. And this accomplishes that. So for its size, it is quite spacious. Because it needs some space within the unit for the actual machinery, about 1/5 of the inside space is not usable. That being said, I can still fit four freezer pizzas, three bags of french fries, various frozen dinners and tupperwear containers, several containers of ice cream and cookies, and there's plenty of room left. The biggest problem with this freezer is, now I just want to buy so much more freezer goods to put in it!

Ease of Cleaning
I have only had this freezer for about two months, so I haven't had to clean it yet. However, based on the inside appearances, it would seem to be easy to clean. There aren't many nooks and crannies that would make it difficult to clean. And there is a spout that you can open to pour out any liquid water that may have accumulated during your cleaning, so that's a plus. After the two months, I haven't noticed anything in the way of frost building up, so here's hoping I won't have to clean it much anyways!

Durability
Good so far! I had to haul this freezer up a flight of stairs...one step at a time. It survived beautifully. Since it's a freezer, I can't imagine one would be doing much to it to test its durability, but so far, for me, it's been suitably durable for my needs.

Design
It's a white, box freezer. I didn't buy it for its looks. That being said, it is not an eyesore. It has very nice clean lines, and not a lot of markings or product labels on it. It's a good, bright white color, and I can see it being "stylish" for many, many years to come. I have this freezer in my house, instead of in a garage etc. and it is nice enough looking that I don't have a problem with it being within sight.

Best Cold Keeper Freezer Ever

By 

from Ashtabula, OH

Comments about Haier 3.5 cu. ft. Chest Freezer #HNCM035E:

We have only had this product for about 1 month, but could never imagine life without it. Our refrigerator/freezer was incapable of storing alot of frozen products that 1 would get when they were on sale. The extra room also is great for storing leftovers (especially at holiday times) and the price was also a great deal. We got this on sale at end of summer, but would of payed full price after having used this for only a short time it is well worth its price and then some.

Temperature Control
It is easy to set and keeps everything nice and cold

Capacity
We were looking for a smaller size than usual, and this fits right in the space we had available. It stores more than what you would think from looking at the outside of it.

Design
We love the way this looks.

great small design but not too much space.

By 

from Union City, NJ

Comments about Haier 3.5 cu. ft. Chest Freezer #HNCM035E:

i love the freezer. especially when our own refridgerator does not have enough space to begin with. this freezer was orginally purchased to store my milk inside , but now that the baby is almost one, we use it now for all of the familys food. great cheap price.but my only concern would be the space .... we dont generally buy too much food but it just seems like the freezer is too packed! heheit's filled up to the top. but the great this is that it does its job, it keeps my excess frozen food cold and frozen. another thing would be that its very quiet. you would even forget that it was even there. we have it placed in one of the corners of my house. we have many guests in our house and they never even realise that i have that thing there.
