Midea MRC04M3AWW 3.5 Cubic Feet Chest Freezer Review

Midea MRC04M3AWW is currently the best selling chest freezer in North America. It has 3.5 cubic feet storage capacity making it is relatively compact yet spacious with temperature adjustable from -11.4°F to 10.2°F (-24°C to -12°C). So what’s so special about it to make it the most popular choice?

It works really well. Once you turn it on it cools down to desired temperature pretty fast. Holds temperature well and keeps your food frozen. It’s also pretty quiet and doesn’t get warm.

Only deficiency is that you might have to manually defrost it once in a while (Unplug the freezer, remove all stored food as well shelving basket and leave freezer door open) but that’s pretty much the case with all chest freezers. How to defrost it? It’s pretty simple. Unplug the freezer, remove all stored food as well shelving basket and leave freezer door open. Place some kind of container underneath outflow hole for water to flow in and then open outflow and drainage holes. When all of the frost has melted wipe interior dry with dry, soft cloth.


Midea MRC04M3AWW has hinge door with recessed handle which stays open on itself at 45°, 60° and 75° for convenient loading/unloading. Other features include removable wire basket, adjustable legs and previously mentioned defrost drain.


Midea MRC04M3AWW has simple to use thermostat knob for temperature adjustment.


Midea MRC04M3AWW is an inexpensive chest freezer that’s basic but works great. That’s why it’s so popular.
