    Outstanding Freezer

    By: Dick on 6/19/2014

    We added a second freezer to our home. We chose The Frigidaire 20.5 cu ft. because e have had such good service with our other 20 cu ft Frigidaire freezer.

    Well designed freezer

    Ample shelf space. Nice adjustable shelves and ease of use controls. The alarm feature has saved us a few times from kids not shutting the door all the way.

    Awesome unit

    By: Awesome unit on 2/6/2014

    This unit more than meets my needs. Lots of room and great organization. The rapid cool down mode is great if you need to freeze lots of fresh meat quickly and the interior light really helps as I keep this unit in my basement.

    It's great!

    By: Blue on 1/30/2014

    Love it! It is really spacious. I also alerts you if you accidentally left the door unclosed. It beeps until you close it. Nice feature so your frozen goodies don't go bad.

    Frigidaire FKFH21F7HW

    By: jukeboxroger on 12/17/2013

    Great Freezer but it is noisy so put it in a place where noise won't be an issue. Love the digital temp. readout on the door. Only other gripe is it only has leveling feet on the front but had holes for leveling feet on the back. I called the seller and they said leveling feet do not come on it for the back but they should. Looks like a cost cutting measure to me and they need to throw in a set. Would probably make the unit run quieter too. Overall, I'm satisfied and would buy again.

    Fantastic buy for anyone

    By: Twinstax on 12/17/2013

    Would so recommend this freezer to anyone in the market for a large capacity freezer. Wife and I currently have almost a half side of beef, along with frozen vegetables and bread we get from the bakery thrift store. Freezer is amazingly quiet, can't even hear it running in the garage, but keeps everything frozen quite well

    Too noisy

    By: Cmc on 12/16/2013

    The capacity and storage capabilities are great. There's no way I would keep this freezer, though, if I had to place it in my kitchen. Poor design and construction to create an unacceptable amount of noise.

    Too Noisy

    By: Mitch on 11/12/2013

    It keeps food frozen, but is extremely too noisy. We had to move it to the garage it was so noisy, four times louder than the 15 year old it replaced.

    By: Louie on 11/24/2012

    Bought this freezer when our walkin freezer at work went down. It was large enough to hold alot of our food. It saved the day and loss of product. It caught the eye of many employees. Best of all I know have it at home after it served it duty at work. Very happy with it.

    Great quality product

    By: MamaMac on 8/10/2012

    We've owned our freezer for about 5 months and are pleased with the quality and capacity. The main shelves are spacious and we love the two sliding baskets in the main area. Also, the flexible storage in the door is very handy. We live in TX and our freezer must live in the garage, so we probably use a lot more energy to keep our freezer cold. However, it has allowed us to stock up on bulk products as well as store homecooked meals and we are very happy with it.

    By: Sue on 5/21/2012

    We had this freezer for less than a month and exchanged it for the FFU21M7HW. The freezer itself was great, but it was the noisiest thing in the house. When it was running that was all you heard as soon as you walked in the house. That was my only complaint. It replaced my 35 year old upright and it was much louder than that one. My husband measured the sound and it was 65 db, the new one is only 45 db. A much quieter model.

    Great Freezer

    By: SandiaHiker on 8/18/2011

    This freezer is a little larger than the one it replaces and I love having the extra space. This freezer is easy to organize with both shelves and pull-out drawers. It also has lots of storage in the door. The interior temperature is displayed on the door so I don't have to worry about food spoiling. There's also an alarm if the door is left open. The previous freezer did not have an interior light so I really appreciate that feature.

    By: Lynne on 12/30/2010

    It is a little noisy, especially in the fast freeze when the side gets really warm. It also had a lot of frost around the front when starting freezing. One thing I would like to correct is the plastic wrapping. It seems to have been put on before the door was installed. How are you supposed to get it all off? I question the seal because you still have plastic around the door. Maybe that is why there was frost when first sarting it up.

    As Advertised

    By: Fred-Eye on 12/21/2010

    This freezer is just what we were looking for. We were replacing an old freezer that was about 15 years old. I really like the slide out drawer and the led temp reading and controls on the outside of the door. The only problem I have is that it came with just a one year warranty. My last freezer had a ten year warranty and lasted 15 years.

    It's freezing in Albuquerque

    By: Tess on 12/21/2010

    The upright freezer does what we want it to do; keep meats and meals frozen. We like to keep frozen meals on hand for families in need, plus I like to have meals made up when I'm too tired to cook. The freezer is more than adequate for our needs. It is a little noisy when running, but we keep our freezer in the garage where we don't notice the noise in the house. There is an alarm that is loud enough for us to hear should I leave the freezer door ajar. That in itself is a very nice feature.

    20.5 cu inch Upright Freezer

    By: Sal on 12/20/2010

    Purchased Model FKFH21F7HW upright freezer several months ago. We'ver very pleased with the unit. It runs quiet and has tremendous storage capacity inside. The electronic controls in the front of the door make it easy to adjust or change temperature. We had a power outage while away and came home to the alarm sounding letting us know our food needed to be checked. Finally, we have not noticed any differenece in our electric bill which means it runs very efficient.

    Happy Customer

    By: Dee on 12/20/2010

    I am very happy with this freezer. It replaced one we'd had for over 15 years. It is roomy and has a lot of bins on the door as well. I like the feature that it shows the inside temperature on the outside of the door. It is also an energy star appliance and saves on the electricity used by an older model. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Excellent freezer

    By: rodgerbob on 12/20/2010

    When we decided we needed additional freezer space for our seasonal accumulation of venison, we searched for used freezers but eventually decided to buy a new one. This is a top of the line freezer that offers excellent interior shelving making visual inventory and access of items easy. It also has excellent lighting and runs quiet and efficiently. We have never regretted our choice to buy new and are especially happy with this model.

    Worth every penny

    By: David on 12/20/2010

    If your looking for a large Upright Freezer. Look no further. Shelving is laid out well for sorting your food and finding what your looking for easily. Stored meats are removed frozen throughout ensuring safe eats. This freezer replaced a commercial freezer we used for twenty-five years the only difference in quality is this one is frost free!
