      Good size
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this to hold a side of beef, still have room for other meat!

        Love a Stand Up vs. An old chest!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We are so happy we bought this freezer. We can fit 3 turkeys, tons of frozen fish, 1/4 beef, and a bunch of venison. It's so much easier to find items now vs. trying to dig to the bottom. The baskets work great for burger!

          Plenty of space!
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a large freezer with plenty of room to organize contents for easy access. Love the bottom large basket for frozen bags of veggies, fruits, and other hard to stack items. I was even able to add freezer containers to allow me to separate beef, chicken, fish, etc!

            Our Whirlpool freezer recently died
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Our Whirlpool upright freezer recently died…after 54! years of reliable service. So, we bought a new Whirlpool upright freezer at a scratch and dent distributor because all the usual distributors were out of stock because of the west coast container ship backlog. We are pleased with the larger new freezer, but the 5 star rating is really for the old freezer. Check back in another 54 years for a rating on our new Whirlpool freezer.<grin>

              Lacks cooling cools
              Even on the lowest setting, my ice cream is melting. I thought the freezer was working the first couple of weeks, but it turns out that the temperature in my garage was so cold (50F), it was helping it getting by. Now that the outside temp is up to about 70F, It simply isn't working as a freezer.This freezer is bad by design. It completely lacks a condenser coil (the part that dissipates heat - see pic where one condenser line runs out and back under the fridge with no coil). The compressor has been running non-stop and is so hot to the touch that it is heating up the metal above to scolding temps. Even the factory insulation melted off the condenser line. Do not even think about buying this freezer. Absolute garbage. And the so called Temperature Alarm, does not exist or does not work, because the temp is maybe 30F inside (a jug of water at the bottom is barely frozen) and no alarm has gone off.

                  Just what I needed
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've only had the freezer for a little over two weeks, but it's just what I needed to keep all my specialty flours and grains for baking in one place. (The garage.) I also keep my yeast, spices and fruit curds and chocolate ganache in this freezer. It freezes fast and I love that it has an alarm to let me know if the temperature gets too warm.

                    Very nice freeze
                    I looked around and so many of the freezer brands looked the same and cheaply built. The Whirlpool seemed to be constructed quite a bit better than the others. The Whirlpool freezer I bought replaced a 38 year old Montgomery Wards brand that I'm sure was built by Whirlpool. The old one was still working, but we had had an issue with it and decided it was time to replace. Over all the previous years, all we ever did was defrost every year or so and replace one light switch and some bulbs. Otherwise it was totally trouble free.

                    think again
                    bought this in 2020, delivered 2021, problems began 10 months after delivery. tech said issue was a factory issue. 6 tech visits and it is declared non-repairable. issue began under factory warranty, but timeline went into extended warranty. AIG extended warranty offered 75% of purchase price doesn't include lost food as the freezer died 2x. Whirlpool washed hands of issue. no-one willing to help. last freezer lasted 38 years with no issues. quality of appliance is poor. not buying anymore whirlpool products if i can help it!

                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Not too many bells and whistles, storage layout is great.
