Customer Reviews

Danby 5.5 cu. ft. Chest Freezer is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noisy but Nice Nice size for the space that I had available. Functions very well...cold. Reseals itself once you close the door. So much so that it is difficult to reopen and it is recommended that you wait a while before reopening. I will say this, it is noisy. You can hear the gurgling of the coolant after the compressor comes on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with the purchase so far. The freezer was just the right size to fit into the space we had for it in our garage. It operates very quietly. The only thing I would have liked better is if it came with more than one basket. Baskets are on backorder for months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Danby Chest Freezer Prior we had an upright freezer, which was easier to store and find foods. The freezer works very well, but just have to move things around a lot to rotate and find what we are looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little freezer This is a great little freezer. Keeps it at exact temp at all times. Mostly quiet. Takes up little space but a great addition if you only have a refrigerator and little freezer space.
