Better cooling

New D Pipe design allows for more pipe contact surface allowing better all around cooling within the unit than traditional rounded pipes.

48 Hour Power Outage Protection

The Danby 48 hour Power Outage Protection helps your frozen food stay frozen under certain conditions. These are the ideal conditions for the best results.
The 48 hour time limit will be shorter the more often the door or lid is opened during an outage. Keep the lid closed as much as possible to prevent cool air from escaping.
Assumption is the product is at least 75% full of frozen food. The more food that is in the freezer frozen the more cold air will circulate within the unit. Time will be shorter with lighter food load contained within. Temperature outside of the freezer 0 degrees C or lower. Where you live and the temperature there could have an impact on the length of time as well.

Open a little or open alot

Preset hinges allow for partial opening of the lid.
If you just need to reach in to grab something from the top of your unit, you will only need to open to the 30° setting. The lid will hold in this position allowing you to use both hands to grab what you need. This also prevents less energy usage to regulate the freezer temperature when opened and closed.
