If you get a "deep freeze" look at a chest freezer. Up-rights loose too much temp. When you open the door all the cold flows out. But, that's a personnal choice. If you have a bad back, the up-right may be a better choice.



As you note, this is a personal choice. I can say that the reason I prefer an upright to a chest freezer is that I can't easily see what I have in the chest freezer, so for me, things would get lost. I find an upright much easier to keep organized, so just thought I'd throw that out there for others to consider.

That said, having a freezer has been one of the best things we've done in terms of being able to store lots of food, buy things on sale, and generally always be stocked up. We had one before the kids when it was just DH and me, and I expect we'll have one after they are gone because I find it just so very convenient.

I highly recommend having a separate freezer, whether that's an upright or a chest type.
