I tend to think that chest freezers are a little better cost-wise. They are less
convienant as far as the way food is stored but they are cheaper to buyinitially, use less energy and will keep food frozen longer in the event of a
power failure. I think if you buy a freezer from any appliance company that has
a good reputation you really can’t go wrong. I have a Kenmore feezer. It was thefirst big purchase I made after I got married and I am sure it has saved us a
ton of money over the last 14 years because I have been able to take advantage
of sales on meat, which is a big part of the food budget. One piece of advice Iwould give is to not buy too big of freezer. For one thing you will not save
money if food gets “lost” in a freezer. Once a year, my mother would take
everything out of the 2 huge freezers she had and throw away all the freezerburned food that hadn’t been eaten in time. You lose money if you are throwing
food away that has been in the freezer too long.
Also freezers use less energy when they are kept full. It is very hard to keepa huge freezer full unless you are buying sides of beef or things like that. I
have a 7 cubic foot freezer and it has been just the right size for our family
of 4. Of course you have to think about what you are going to be freezing. I donot freeze my own veggies or buy sides of beef so a smaller freezer has been
sufficient. Ours is not frost free but I don’t have to defrost it very often.
Usually about 2 times a year.Carrie
