    Comments about Engel 40qt. Portable Refrigerator/Freezer:

    Purchase this for my sailing vessel. It is very noisy. It draws WAY more current (Amps) than the manufacturer says. It turns on/off very frequently. It does not have a 220 VAC capability. It is very expensive. If it wasn't for the environmental impact it would be at the bottom of the Atlantic ocean. Worst refrigeration product I have ever purchased.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Great delivery via UPS.

      Comments about Engel 40qt. Portable Refrigerator/Freezer:

      I use this on my yacht and it has been one of the best investments onboard. Works well in hot tropical conditions. Also a perfect size to provides extra seating in the cabin. Unfortunately a somewhat cheap & nasty look. Better with extra textile cover-all.
