The 3.1 cubic feet capacity is equal to roughly 88 liters of space. The relatively small size and the smooth back make it ideal for tight spaces at home, office, dorm rooms or wherever you want to use it as long as indoors. There are two full-width fixed shelves in this freezer for your different food items to freeze. And you can adjust the temperature to what you prefer through the mechanical thermostat.
White Koolatron KTUF88 weighs 56.2 pounds and measures 22.1 x 21.7 x 33.2 inches and 15 x 26 inches inside. It holds more than what the size of the unit shows- heaps more than a standard mini freezer. It doesn’t come with the auto defrost feature and you need to defrost it twice a year or so. But whenever needed you can defrost it quickly within two to three of hours by unplugging and opening the door, depending on the ambient temperature.
Freshness of the food is also maintained better with the manual defrost than the auto defrost. The interior temperature or how cold it will be will be determined by how much food you have in there and how frequently you open the freezer door. You can remove the basket and the drawers but there are shelves under each drawer, if you’re intending to make up space for the taller items. There is no interior light or an indicator on the outside. You can use it anywhere with an outside temperature range of 55 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
It works very quietly and you’re not likely to see much of a frost accumulation. There are three drawers on the shelves that you don’t see in the photo. They are removable but they do not pull out because of the stoppers at the front. It would work well for those with need of some extra freezer space. It will fit perfectly in tight spaces in the small apartments. The door is conveniently reversible to open from the left or the right. The controls are located at the rear, which may be inconvenient for some of you. Overall it offers very good value for the money.
