    A 7 cu ft chest freezer is going to take up some space, but it's worth the sacrifice. Tiny ones aren't worth it.

    I used to have a huge chest freezer way back when I was married. I ended up with an upright that's about 12 cu ft, and am thinking about getting a chest freezer to make it possible to buy more beef.

    honestly, it doesn't take up that much room. and when I compared it to the 5 cu ft one, it was only slightly bigger. they are the same exact height and depth, and the 7 cu ft one is 9 inches wider. that's it. so for the extra $40 and only 9" width, it was definitely worth it

    I guess I will have to go take a look. I want to put my dehydrated backpacking food (protect it from bugs) in it so maybe a small one is big enough. But if I had a bigger one, maybe I could buy part of a cow. I didn't even know they made these mini freezers until recently.

    I have a chest freezer and absolutely LOVE it. I don't know what I ever did without it. The extra storage allows me to buy 1/2 hog or 1/4 cow at a time. Also, a chest freezer does not have a defrost cycle like the freezer in a standard fridge. This means WAY less freezerburn on your food. The ice does build up on the sides, but personally I would much prefer to chip ice off once a year than to have my meat get freezerburned.
