Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice addition to household. Have had it for about a month. Has reduced confusion in our refrigerator's freezer. Already saving us money since we are buying items that are on sale and freezing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the appearance and convenience We replaced an older upright 20cu freezer(one of two) with the new Whirlpool 20cu. The Whirlpool is much more attractive, requires less space and is much quieter. The interior light is great and the baskets are large and easily accessible.The freezer holds a great deal of fresh food from my garden and freezes it quickly helping preserve the flavor. We haven't needed the temperature alarm yet but are happy to have it, we have lost food before so we know the value of the audible alert. When it's time to replace our second home freezer it will be with another Whirlpool just like our new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way beyond expectations: Whirlpool® 20 cu. ft. Upright Freezer We do a daily food blog ... five new dishes a week. That's a whole bunch of food to store! We were desperate for more freezer space. Went shopping only thinking of price. Our local dealer gave us a great deal. Great. Didn't think much more ... then, we started using it. Wow! Well organized space. Easy access. Super cold when we need it in "Eskimo" mode. Makes everything easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase So happy with this purchase and the customer service was awesome. Our old freezer 'died' on a Friday afternoon-had a house full of family and it was August. Went to our local appliance store-made a purchase-and in less than 2 hours our new freezer was delivered and set up. So happy !
