Portable top-opening 12/24V DC - 110V/120V AC fridge-freezer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I bought this about a month ago after extensive research. Could have spent less money but the references from friends and the reviews of others convinced me the extra for Engel quality was worth it. So far, very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MT45F-U1 Freezer Review Picked up this Freezer for my boat, used it for the last week, cools very fast and is very quiet. Does a great job holding temp and overall a great product. Only issue is the control knob moves too easy which is constantly bumped by kids and it lacks a digital readout. Seems they could fix these issues easily to make it excellent. Other than that, very happy with the capability and holding capacity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the best Was looking for the norcold cooler/freezer and found that this one is exactly the same and about $200 cheaper all they did was change the name tags. A friend has had a norcold for 12 years never a problem just don't set it above 2 or your drink will start freezing even if it's 100 degrees uses very little electricity
