This freezer is a great buy. I bought mine at sams club and love it. I also have found that GE always makes well made products that are meant to last. Temperature Control There is a dial on the side that allows you to control the settings. I have never had a problem with it not keeping my food frozen. Capacity It is amazing just how much frozen food it holds. You can put a couple months worth of groceries in there. I have never had any problems with not having enough storage space. Ease of Cleaning It's not hard to clean as long as you keep up with the maintenance on it. I suggest cleaning it once a month before adding more food. Durability It is very well made. It's not heavy so you wouldn't think it would be durable, but it is definitely built tough. I've moved mine around quite a bit and it has lasted me forever. Also it is packed very well in the box it comes in. Design I love that it comes with the racks inside. It provides easier storage for your food which makes things easier to find. It makes it easy to store the big stuff on the bottom and place your small stuff on top.
