i have had both and i love my upright freezer. you dont have to take everything
out to see or get to the bottom. you can prepare trays of food for specialevents and just slide them in. i would definatly go with the frost free version.
ours is not the frost free so once a month, when my reg. freezer is almost
empty, i take the stuff out of the upright and use a smaller size bristle brush,kind of like the ones that you would use to scrub the floor with and brush out
the frost. total time take 20-30 min and the meat does not get affected because
it is not enough time to defrost. when we were going to get our freezer from thestore, the cost was crazy. the one we origanlly wanted was $800. you can get
them at used appliance or scratch and dent places for a much smaller price tag
and they work just a good. good luck, brandy.

In order to reduce our food budget, we are going to buy a freezer for
our basement. We figured if we saved $150-200 a month in food bybuying in bulk, making ahead, taking advantage of sales,and planning
ahead, we’d recoup that money in only 1-2 months.
Does anyone have any recommendations for freezers? Upright vs. chest?Brands to choose/stay away from? Does it pay to get the frost-free
Thanks in advance![Non-text portions of this message have been removed]
