Westinghouse 290L Chest Freezer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great size I've had my freezer now for a month. The lid angles back more and sometimes hits the back wall when the kids (they are older) open it. Sometimes a problem to open. The seal works mighty good even when it hasn't been opened for hours. Called Tech support and they sent a tool out that helps release the seal. Awesome! I would have liked a third basket or had them slightly wider but I love the sturdiness off them. They aren't flimsy at all and can handle quite a bit of weight. My smaller freezer was smaller but higher, this one is not as high which means I can reach to the bottom more easily. It's on wheels! which is great when you want to clean around it and install it but they need brakes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from burns everything we put in it. We bought this freezer a few months ago and have had to throw away almost every ounce of meat/meals and icecreams we put in there because it continually sucks the moisture out of the sealed packets and burns them. The lid is a hit and miss seal too, 90% of the time it's not actually sealing properly and can be lifted with 1 single finger. Even after the lid has been open for a while. Ice is building up at times as a result.We have tried re packing foods, shuffling the items, covering the floor with containers of soups, and using the baskets more and less in the mix and the results are always the same- the foods are STILL being sucked dry even on the very lowest setting. Even icecream is being dried out.. Very unhappy with this freezer, if we could send it back for a full refund we would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size, great value Recently purchased this chest freezer having used an upright for the past 10 years. Whilst it had never missed a beat, it just didn’t hold enough. We had bought it when we were just a couple and it served us great, but as a family of four now it just wasn’t adequate anymore. We love our new Westinghouse chest freezer though. It’s very spacious but without being too bulky. It stores an unbelievable amount of frozen goods and I’m finally able to do bulk cooking for our family now that we have space to properly store it all. I was initially put off prior to purchase due to reading some not so great reviews about Westinghouse, however we went ahead because we personally have never had an issue with our Westinghouse products over the years as well as the fact many reviews left are often only when people have a problem. We decided the brand has been around for many years and that that’s got to count for a lot. We are very happy so far with this purchase. We’ve had it about a month now and it’s fantastic. We were advised it could take about 24 hours to pull-down fully, but it was fully ready to go in just 3-4 hours from unboxing which was awesome!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seriously! Power cord located bottom right hand side on the side panel.............at the front? Please enlighten me as to who this serves. Is there a benefit I am missing because I would love to take advantage rather than having to buy the extension cord. Or tell me some adjustment you can make to put it at the back or toward the back on the side panel. We have just retired an adopted, possibly 20yr old westinghouse chest freezer that had a wire mesh wall along the open side of the internal compressor shelf and this was a fabulous feature. Open shelve not so fabulous. I'm sure it will freeze fine but...ya know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I bought the 290lt chest freezer recently and am very pleased with it. I love the fact that it is on casters (convenient for cleaning), has a drainage plug and the little stays on the seal (brilliant!) to name but a few. My only "gripe" would be that it had a dent in the lid, but that could have happened after it left the factory.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a freezer Boxy but efficient. Plenty of space. The seal is often too strong to open the lid - use a credit card or similar to break the seal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 290 litre chest freezer Fantastic freezer, would give it 5 srars if it had a light in the lid.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Perfectly good looking freezer Unfortunately not the one for me. 30 minutes to open after you closed the lid, when full 5 minutes. As was using for a business not suitable as I need to open when I want. So returning to store.
