What experts liked
Despite its sizeable interior, the Arctic King has a rather compact footprint due to its height measuring 28 inches in length, 20.6 inches wide with a height of 33.5 inches. Inside, there is 5.0 cubic foot of storage space which provides plenty of room to cater for frozen foods storage for small to medium sized families.
- Home Appliance Advisor
The removable basket gives you the comfort to store foods that you need to remove often. It is simple to clean this chest freezer anytime with sponge or cloth. Besides that, it is easy to store and maintain the freezer anywhere.
- Awesometoplist
Built to last and it’s extremely simple to setup. This also comes with optional back rollers and with this being only 70 lbs empty you can move it around comfortably.

What experts didn't like
The temperature dial isn’t numbered so it requires some guesswork to set the right temperature. This model does not feature an interior light, which is a potential downside for use in environments with low lighting such as garages or basements.
- Home Appliance Advisor
There are some dented parts as some reported.
- Awesometoplist
The thermostat dial on the front isn’t anything special but it does the job. With only two settings(max and min) you don’t have much opportunity to work with it.
