Crap another freezer gone

Postby Copasspupil » Fri Jan 08, 2021 7:35 pm

I bought an atosa freezer since the last three freezers had died now make it 4 in 16 years. What are people using for freezers for the garage? One of the 4 was supposed to be a garage freezer and 3 of the 4 were new. I just tossed out a oh 2k worth of pork, bacon, beef, chicken and seafood. I was able to salvage about 100 worth of ny steaks and some pork.

Oh no!

Don't know if this is still true, but we learned not to buy the cheapest OR the most expensive item from any appliance line because it's the mid-priced models that are most popular, and most tested/reliable.

PB says to have a freezer alarm too.

Would try a restaurant supply house. Pricey but their products have to be able to handle a beating.

Yes you are right. Very cleanly, we either save unwisely, or overpay for a bloated name, as a result, the technique quickly fails. And if, for the sake of economy, used equipment is taken - then just look that you will overpay 2 times. I prefer to take new equipment and carefully read the reviews and look at the reviews before buying.
