Black and Decker BFD53 Chest Freezer Review: Is It All It's Cracked Up To Be?

While this might seem very strange at first, the Black and Decker BFD53 Chest Freezer shows that the Black and Decker Company isn’t just limited to power tools and lawn mowers. While the chest freezer division of the Company isn’t huge, they still work to put the same level of quality into the Black and Decker freezers as they would with any other product representing their brand name. While these are not the ultra expensive commercial grade level of freezers, many people don’t need to pay the extra money for commercial strength appliances as a normal well built chest freezer will be more than enough.
The BFD53 is a smaller model of chest freezer, which is very convenient for many families who don’t have a ton of space for a giant box freezer but whom still need the extra space for frozen food. This particular model is approximately 29 inches wide, 22 inches deep, and 32 inches tall. This amount of space allows for an average of up to 150 lbs of frozen meat, which is going to be necessary for many deer hunters. That might not put a huge dent in the problem for moose hunters, but it’s at least a start as far as getting the extra meat frozen and properly stored. The freezer itself weights 76 pounds, which is pretty reasonable for even a small chest freezer.
The Black and Decker BFD53 chest freezer reviews out as a middle of the pack chest freezer in that it doesn’t stick out as some overly expensive and great commercial strength unit, but it also doesn’t have any major flaws or weaknesses that would cut it down. This chest freezer also comes with all the little things that you would want from a high quality and modern design, including a power light to indicate when power is on or off, heavy duty spring hinges, easy access defrost drain, and a security lock and key. This is one of the most interesting features of the freezer, and gives an extra bit of security to make sure all your food stays your food.
At the end of the day an honest review has to look at the Black and Decker BFD53 chest freezer and call it a well made but average small chest freezer. It’s not going to be mistaken for top of the line, but it’s not going to fall to the level of some of those cheap pieces of junk which have broken down on so many people. This is a good inexpensive small chest freezer that works well and comes with a one year manufacturer’s warranty just in case.
The Black and Decker line of refrigerators and freezers are aimed at people on a strict budget who need a new appliance, and in that regard the BFD53 succeeds admirably. It’s an affordable chest freezer that will provide years of service and give that much needed 150 lbs of frozen meat worth of storage. For many consumers this will be more than enough for their needs.
