I do. It is horizontal. It is a manual defrost, so maybe once a year, we have to clean the ice formations out of it. Not a big deal. We get a lot of use out of it.

We have an upright and it is a manual defrost. DH says you can pack more into a horizontal one but I manage to keep this one packed and I can easily see what I have.

Upright and Automatic defrost. I got over that having to defrost a freezer years ago - not worth my time. I think they frost up more in the south than in other areas. I use to have to defrost mine every 2 to 3 months. I prefer openning the door and it being frost free.

There were 2 things I promised myself when I retired. A single family
house with an attached garage and a separate freezer for extra storage.
I got the house in 2002 and the upright frost free freezer a year later
that has it's own place in the garage.

We had a chest freezer when I was growing up on the farm. For me
it is hard to reach into a chest freezer when you have to get to something near the bottom.

The upright brand that I bought is a Frigidaire. Got a great deal at
Lowes and they delivered it FREE.

I have 2 extra storage freezers...very much needed when you butcher your own beef. I have a vert. and horiz. freezer and one is frost free and one is not. The frost free uses more energy supposedly and the manual defrost freezer has to only be defrosted once a year or so. I do NOT prefer the chest type freezer, there is no way to really organize a chest freezer and your food at the bottom is forgotten. You will pay a lot less for a manual defrost freezer and I believe they cause less freezer burn for some reason....just has been that way from my experience.

You "buddys" are right on time with your advice/help. My chest freezer just died!!! Although it is more than 15 years old, it's not to die at this time of year with all this food in it. !! Your comments have helped in selecting my Chistmas gift to me. Happy Thanksgiving all.....
