Default Johnson Controls Temp Regulator used with a Freezer?

I bought a Johnson Control Temp Regulator about a Month ago, and my intention was to use it with my freezer that sits in the basement. Question I have is whether or not my Freezer will go as warm as 57 Degrees. Think it'll work? I'm planning on plugging her in tonight and giving her a dry run.

I use mine on a chest freezer that is as high as 65 degrees to ferment in the summer. It works out just fine

Yes it will work, as long as the temperature outside the freezer is higher than the temperature you are trying to keep inside the freezer.
