My search for the elusive compact chest freezer that can put all the kegs on the floor has led me to Home Depot.

Vissani 7.0cf MDCF7WH. currently at Home Depot. these are often "promotional" items so they will probably soon disappear. I wanted black but out of stock everywhere and likely not going to get re-stocked, so white it is.

As you can see, it hold 4 kegs on the floor with very little space wasted. Only slightly staggered. There is maybe 1/2" to spare so it's not tight or binding. Outside is less that 2x3 footprint.

Lowes has one that appears identical right now but a different brand name. Hisense. But likely from the same factory. It's $249. LC70D6EWD. I did not test fit my kegs but the internal measurements were the same. They are just like 1/2-1" more front to back than the name brand freezers. That's all it takes to make the kegs be less staggered.

I was just looking at those yesterday, also was looking at the Magic Chef HMCF7W4 which has very comparable dimensions and same price.

Magic Chef that I looked at didn't fit 4...I test fit my kegs...

"comparable" is not "identical"

My Hisense freezer is 7.0 cubic feet. I can only fit 3 kegs in mine. I can put a 2.5 gallon on the step though so buy a half keg if you want to add another keg.

Apparently it’s been changed in the last two years without a model number change. You’d have to verify the one you are actually buying, but seems unlikely there would be any old stock at this point.

I was at HD last night where both sat side by side. I did not throw a tape on them, but to me the Vissani looks visually larger inside, and it is for sure slightly taller.
