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.

Perfect Size

Jode2 1/1/2021

Perfect size for empty nesters, as well as a space saver. After downsizing from an upright freezer, we have found items as easily accessible in this chest freezer as an upright.

Evelynd 12/30/2020

The freezer is the perfect size in that it does not take up too much room in my garage. And it is the perfect size for making more room in the refrigerator freezer in the house.

So Far So Good

Nick777777 12/30/2020

Purchased 12/4/2020. So far, works as advertised. Would like to see option to purchase 1 - 2 more baskets. The baskets offered on GE website, for seventy plus, is always out of stock. Charging that much for a Ten - twenty basket is not good customer service! A wheel kit option would also be convenient. The freezer is compact, and fits well in a small space.

We love our new GE freezer chest. It is the perfect size for 2 people & it works great in the garage where it is not heated nor air conditioned. At 3/4 turns on the control, it runs -10 to -8.... at half way it will run -5 TO O......and very quiet. Addition, you have the GE label which us. means quality. Very satisfied !!!

Great so far

IzzyNic 12/23/2020

Just a couple of weeks in but really like it so far. I found some ice cream was a little soft so I've adjusted the temp. Very nice looking & perfect size for me. The cord could be a little longer and I'm not sure why there isn't a cover over the hole in the back where the cord exits, especially since there are some holes for screws. Being a "garage" freezer, I don't want critters making a home inside. I may tape a cover over the hole.

Faith0317 12/22/2020

We were shopping around for a small freezer and decided to stop at Poulston's. All of our appliances in our house were bought at Poutston's. All are in great working condition. So when we walked in we were sure to find what we wanted. The price was right, service in the store was good and delivery was prompt. Poulston's came through again.

518Deb 12/19/2020

Freezer works fine. I've only been using it a week. I think that it needs a cover over the hole that the power cable comes out. It's a pretty big hole not to be covered in some way. It seems like dirt or debris could get in there easily since it is at ground level.

LeeFromNY 12/18/2020

Had the product for a few weeks and so far it's working well. The items inside are frozen, but I cannot get the overall temp to get below 0 degrees F. Recommendations have shown that I should keep it below 0, so I hope that it stays this way when full.

snowgirl27 12/18/2020

Great small freezer! Love that it has a spring-loaded lid and a basket to keep things organized. Unfortunately, it had a huge dent in the front of it right out of the box. It doesn't affect its performance, but it is disappointing.

Johncunn43 12/18/2020

Our local GE dealer called and let us know he had a supply of these freezers just in. Next morning, his people quickly loaded my suv and I was off back home. After unpacking, all that was needed was to wipe the inside (per instructions) and plug it in. It does get any easier than that! GE has been part of our family for years.

Wins2 12/17/2020

This freezer has plenty of room for the two of us. Consistent temperature, quiet. The only issue, it does collect a bit of ice near the hinges. I thought it was from the small wire tray, but even with that removed, ice crystals collected. No worries, just scrape them off. Great size freezer.

None1972 12/16/2020

Nice size chest freezer to augment our main refrigerator. Quiet operation and appears to be energy efficient based on how often it cycles on and off to keep proper temperature. Only bad feature is the outside drain plug for defrosting. Unit did not come with a hose or hose adapter to drain when manually defrosting. GE support advises there is no accessory to purchase and could not provide a part number to buy on the open market. Price higher than other brands with same features and size.
