WOW! I have owned this cooler for four months and I have used it five times. It comes with the handles detached. It took me twenty minutes to attach them, without assistance. This is a fantastic cooler. It does what it claims to do.
I bought this portable freezer/refrigerator to pack with frozen home-cooked meals to be used in hotel rooms. I travel frequently, by car, with my 74-year-old mother and we could not continue to eat road food, because it made us sick. I use to buy ice and dry ice to keep our homemade meals. These means of keeping food frozen became very expensive. So, I researched portable freezes and found the Dometic CF-040AC110 Cool Freeze Gray Refrigerator.
It is easy to learn how to use it, when the instructions are read before use. The color works for me, soft gray. It comes with the two power cords 12/24 V DC and 110 V. It works very well in my crossover's cigarette lighter and 110 V AC outlets. I have not had a problem with it draining...
I owned Norcold chest freezers for a number of years with good results. I purchased the CF 50-110U on 6/06/12. It worked very well the first year. At Lake Powell, with ambient temperature of 90 degrees, it used about 30 amps for 24 hours (out of a 110 Amp hour group 31 battery, and kept the frozen food at 5 degrees F. This summer, about 2 months out of warrantee it ran all of the time and would only get down to 9 degrees F (most of the time it was between 11 and 13 degrees F, indicated on the LED readout. After returning home, I began to experiment and found that when the LED read out was at 33, the temperature in the box was 28 F (in an alcohol solution with a lab type thermometer). When the LED was 11 degrees, the temperature in the box was 5 degrees, and the unit was running full time. The unit was cooling well, but the thermostat (thermistor actually was off). I reviewed the internet, and found that this was a known problem with these units, and that before Dometic...
Compressor fridges are so vastly superior to 12 volt thermoelectric "coolers" it is laughable - but they are pricey, especially at the compact end of the spectrum. This CDF-11 uses a Danfoss compressor design identical to larger portable fridge-freezers, and that component drives the price. That being said, this was the least-expensive 12V compressor fridge-freezer I could find, and after a couple of months I'm very happy with the performance. It is easy to carry with the included strap, uses very little power, very quiet, and will keep food and beverages as cold as you like, all the way down to frozen solid as long as you have a good battery in your vehicle.
And though 11 quarts is pretty small, you can fit more than you might think if you are used to using ice or blue ice to keep things cold in a regular cooler. Using all of the volume for your food and drinks instead of ice makes a difference!
In exchange for that cost, what you get is storage for about a...
