I've been running a pair of EVA Dry 500s in my keezers since forever. I used them on my original 10cf keezer ~15 years back, then in my 13 cf that died a couple years ago, and now my current 14 cf keezer. They hold a bit more than a cup of water, and work best when converted to more "active" units...

This looks similar to what I got from Amazon. The brand I got the clear lid melted the first time I stuck it in the oven. Still works fine, just gotta be careful not to tip it. A single one keeps my kreezer condensation free if I recharge it when it needs it.

fwiw, these EVA Dry units have a nichrome wire running through the absorbent media to a retractable two prong 120vac plug. When you want to "recharge" the unit (ie: dry it out) you plug it into wall power for 10 hours or so to heat it up (quite a bit, actually)...

Cheers!
