Kenmore 7.2 Cubic Foot Chest Freezer

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

I do a lot of cooking in my kitchen, and I'm always looking for a way to save money on the meals I like to cook for my family. To help me do this, I needed a chest freezer that would let me freeze whole meals for quick reheating later, as well as all those delicious ingredients that I didn't have time to use up! After doing some research on different models, I decided on the Kenmore 7.2 cubic foot chest freezer.

I ultimately chose this freezer because it was large enough to hold at least a couple weeks' worth of meals, as well as soup bones and fruit containers, but also wouldn't be so big it was hard to get into the house or take up too much room. I didn't know exactly where I wanted it though so it started in my large storage room, then got moved to my laundry room, then ultimately got moved to my garage. Thankfully, the medium size of this freezer made it relatively easy to move around, even up and down stairs, and with a lot of help from my husband, was pretty light too.

Some of the features I noticed right away was the locking feature. Why would you want to lock your freezer shut? Well, you may be particularly attached to your frozen goods, or you might want to keep your small children away from the lid, which can become very dangerous, and was the reason I was most happy for the locking feature. It also has a frost indicator light which comes on to tell you if frost is building up in your freezer and it's time to defrost. Defrosting must be done manually but I've had mine for two years and frost has never built up, nor have I ever had to defrost the freezer.

What I love most about this Kenmore freezer, and what I notice on a regular basis, is the way it's divided up into different compartments. There's a lift-out carry basket that slides from side to side, making access to the items below it very easy. There's also a small in-step at the bottom of the freezer. I like to use this to place my most-used items on, while items I'll only go looking for once or twice can remain on the bottom - there's less digging for me this way!

This Kenmore chest freezer may not be one of the top-of-the-line models, but at $300 it was a very good price for me at the time and has since filled all of the requirements I would ask for out of a freezer. And, if it's missing any of those features that the pricier models hold, I haven't noticed it yet!
