My new freezer came yesterday. I transferred the previously frozen meats over from the fridge's freezer to the new one. it is practically full now with the meats. it reached a temp of -4 degrees. That is below 0. I can now get a few more meats to add to what I already have for the winter. The compressor is so quiet that you can only hear it in quiet surroundings! Very energy efficient. It is energy-star rated for saving on your electric bill. Holds over 100lb of food!
