Has saved me money. Temperature Control Always keeps the food frozen solid. Capacity Holds plenty for this family (of 6 when we bought it) Ease of Cleaning Just wipe the outside with a cloth. Durability Has stood up to my children very well- opening and closing, slamming door down, sitting on it. Design For a basic chest freezer, it is nice to have the fixed place basket and a moveable one (it can be slid across or removed).
