Since this thread has been bumped....my Massimo went camping with me in September and has been running in the house nonstop keeping beer cold. Zero issues so far.

bought one, had it break, massimao sent out a new one no problem. they stand behind their product and with costcos warranty you should not have a doubt. I went back and then bought another one. They are great for the price. use about 50w on the surge, low watts for continuous usage. Interested to try out the appicool app, didnt know this. Lots of vids online about the secret menus and other options not listed in the instruction booklet

550 5-star reviews, 120 4-star and only 42 lesser reviews.

Maybe member only? I didn't buy one.


From a 1-star review:
"Costco and Massimo website advertise the cooler as having a LG Compressor but I can see from the vent of the cooler that I got that the compressor is a HuaJun ZH25G."
I actually contacted Massimo for that exact question. According to the reply from Massimo and the supporting documents, HuaJun compressor is actually a LG Joint Venture factory, and it was said it's the same compressor. BTW, I don't think Costco and Massimo website did advertise the cooler as having LG Compressor, but just mentioned LG somewhere...

I only quoted the review comment because it was mentioned in this thread, not necessarily because it was expected to come with an LG compressor. For that price I wouldn't hesitate to try it out.

Too good of a deal now that I’m in the market for a fridge. Pulled the trigger 🤑🤑🤑
And I took it back...

Could not see a way to strap the thing down. Cooled, froze water like it should but what’s going to keep it from falling over or becoming a missile aimed at the back of my head if we come to a quick stop?

I don't understand. Wouldn't a couple of ratchet straps hold the frig in place? Or maybe three.

You definitely have to get creative with the straps where as a Dometic or ARB fridge comes with beefy handles to make things easier. I imagine at least one strap would have to go over the Massimo fridge opening, making it a pain to access quickly because you'd have to undo the strap. My Massimo comes this week so we'll see what I come up with.
