The Haier HF50CM23NW has a spacious interior that lets you organize food in a way that works for you. You can use the storage basket in this chest freezer to separate the things you use the most from the items that can stay in the freezer for months. Further, the basket is removable, which helps quite a bit with cleaning when it's time to defrost your freezer.
This freezer is ENERGY Star-qualified. This chest freezer uses 216 kWh per year, which translates into a bill of $26 annually or $2.17 per month. When compared with other chest freezers in our buying guide, this is about average. A bigger freezer that only uses a little more energy is the Danby chest freezer, if you are looking for a bit more storage space.
The generous storage could help offset the extra dollars for some households. This freezer can hold a considerable amount of assorted frozen foods used routinely by people who like to stock up on groceries. This freezer can reach a low temperature of -8 degrees Fahrenheit, which works quite well for any frozen food storage.
As far as space, this compact freezer is 35.1 inches high, 30.5 inches wide and 23.1 inches deep. It weighs 72 pounds, which puts it among the lightest products in our lineup. This deep chest freezer comes in an appealing white shade that can fit nicely into the décor of any kitchen, or it can simply blend into the background in a storage area.
Along with the removable storage basket, this small chest freezer is equipped with a drain so you can easily remove water while manually defrosting it. But beyond that, it is disappointing that you get no extra features such as a power-on light, a door lock or adjustable legs.
The Haier chest freezer gives you 5 cubic feet of storage space, which is certainly plenty for a small household. However, its feature package is basic and it costs more to operate than other chest freezers.
