Reader Tip: Hisense 7.2 Cu Ft Deep Freeze – $109 at Costco
Thanks to HBF Readers Jim and Dustin for this tip! [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]
I’m told that Costco has the Hisense 7.2 cu ft chest freezer, model FC72D6BWE marked down to just $109 through 2/20/17. Use in conjunction with a temp controller [See: Hands on Inkbird ITC-308 Dual Stage Temp Controller] for a kegerator conversion project or as a for fermentation temperature control.
from Dustin… “Comes with a 3 year warranty. Great price, had to pick one up. And unlike my other 7.X cubic foot freezer, it actually fits 4 ball lock kegs in the deep section (tight fit though). This was on display right at the entrance at my local Costco, but seems to be a nationwide deal.”
Check with your local Costco club for price and availability.

Just spotted this beauty at my Costco last night. One is headed home with me tonight.
The Hisense page says that the temperature is -9 to 48F. Could it be that at the MIN setting it could actually be used as a keezer without adding a temperature controller? I’ll have one ready to go, but if their range is accurate that would be awesome.
My plan is to put two 5-gallon kegs and a 20# tank in the deep section, plus a 1.75-gallon keg (and later, perhaps, a second) for small/experimental batches in the shallow section. Sounds like there should be no problem. Score!
