This is a perfect solution for our two person household. What it has done for us is add space (from no added deep freeze) and save money (allowing me to stock up during meat sales). The perfect solution for downsizing while maintaining the benefits of a full size deep feeze. And then add in the ability to be a fridge if needed - excellent feature.We had gotten rid of our old energy gobbling large deep freeze two years ago. Since then I have watched meat sales come and go with frustration by how limited I was because of my limited freezer space. My husband complained frequently about how crowded our freezer was. I am very pleased with our purchase to date.
I Liked this freezer for 4 reasons: It has a very effective lock; it's compact size; It was offered in chrome finish and it is a good deal for the price. And a real plus when you get it on overstock.com you don't pay those exhorbitant shiping charges.
I had been seeking a very small refrigerator for my office to replace a tiny ChefMate unit that burned out when the power went out. It is surprisingly difficult to find anything smaller than the typical dorm-size fridges (beyond those functionally useless soda can chillers you can get at **** or anywhere else). I decided to go with this EdgeStar unit for a few reasons: it was no larger than the rest of the cubes out there; it was reasonably priced, and on sale; and perhaps most importantly, it is compressor-based and offers a very wide range of temperatures, even down to turning it into a freezer. The solid state can chillers and wine-type coolers don't get close to freezing and sometimes just don't get very cold.
After receiving and using this thing for a couple of months now, I can tell you that it has met all of my expectations, and then some. It is very cold. The compressor is quiet. The build quality is good. While there is no storage in the door for things like beverages, the single shelf can be moved back to accommodate taller bottles and half and half containers. It has a large internal capacity. I'm very pleased and not a little surprised. Its external dimensions are larger than what I had, but it still fits into the office niche I had created for a fridge. Finally...it locks! So if you are paranoid and want to keep your pesky officemate from putting his cold cuts in the thing, you can.
Wow I love this FREEZER. Yes it is a mini fridge too but boy can this thing freeze! I've had and used a couple other mini fridges in the past but none of them really kept ice cream frozen in that little freezer box. Well turn this one up and the entire fridge is a freezer. I can freeze water for ice cubes and it can keep ice cream hard as a rock. Plus, if you don't need anything frozen, then you can turn the controls down to keep everything cool / cold. This is the perfect mini freezer / fridge! I have it at work and in the winter it typically is set as a fridge. However, in the summer I want to have ice cream bars (can't keep them in the company fridge because they disappear due to my coworkers) so I turn the control up to the freezer mode. The bars are nice and hard. I like the lock option too. It keeps any hungry office foragers from helping themselves to my tasty treats. I've had this freezer for about a year and it's working perfectly for my needs.
We car camp and couldn't stand packing everything on ice, just for it to end up melting/defrosting anyway. We finally invested in a mini fridge and freezer. This freezer looks tiny, but if you play a game of Tetris with your food, you can get a week's worth of frozen food in this little guy for 4 people. We did! It's light enough for you to just move it around, and short enough where it's not easy to knock over. FABULOUS BUY!!!
Excellent freezer for what I needed! I live in a small apartment that has only a counter high fridge (VERY LITTLE FREEZER SPACE). I purchased this to make ice (which I use a lot of in all my cold drinks) and store ice cream, another of my favorites, I have plenty of room for 5 ice trays, normal freezer ice bucket (12 x 4 x 8 plastic bin), two 1/2 gal. of ice cream and enough room for 1-3 frozen dinners, I could fit more if I got different trays, but I am on a disability budget!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality, seals tight and freezes water quickly!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Dead on!
Like the freezer / refrigerator. It is very cold, probably can go below -20F that my thermometer can not measure that low..
I made an ice cream cake and have to use a saw to cut it.
Stainless steel looks good in my kitchen, and It is very quiet which is a plus.
The only concern that I have is that the rack is not secure, will fall if not handle carefully.
The delivery was very prompt, ordered on X'mas, received on 12/28.

How does the lock on the mini fridge work exactly? Is the key a tool that can be bought in any tool shop, or is it like an actual key where its the only thing that can open the frige?rchshopper on Apr 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The key is a small 5 sided piece of metal encased in a molded plastic cover (something like if a car key were shaped like a short Allen wrench). It is a push and turn type lock though, and I found that a .25" flat head screwdriver works if you were to lose the key.charlie81dbz on Apr 16, 2013
There are locks in hardware stores that will do the same thing, but, are cumbersome and scratch the surfaces.tsb2 on Jul 17, 2013
Does this have to be assembled? Also, is there a way to use this as a fridge and freezer at the same tiem?hsmith341 on Oct 11, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The unit comes assembles. It can be used either as a refrigerator or freezer. However, it can''t be used as both at the same time.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 11, 2012
NO, thank goodness, take it out of the box and plug it in, even the shelf is already in place when you get it! Its pack well so you do have a bit of trash to clean up, but there is no downside to getting this product. I have had mine for a month now and LOVE IT! I am a 45 yo male if that helps.tsb2 on Jul 17, 2013
Both settings freezer and fridge have a range of temps, you can put the freezer on rock hard ice cream to soft and the same with fridge (but not frozen), excellent range of temp control.tsb2 on Jul 17, 2013
Do i need a special adapter ? Or can i use it at work work in a regular outlet?azuregoose on Aug 9, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
NO, I got mine in and pluged it right in, you just need a regular 3 prong outlet (I live in an older building and only have a few of those) but it works on any standard outlet, plus you can get the adapter plug at any hardware store to make it work in a two prong outlet.tsb2 on Jul 17, 2013
