    Thinking of buying a mini-freezer

    You know how they have mini-fridges, I was thinking what I could really use is a mini-freezer. The freezer in our fridge simply doesn't hold enough stuff, plus it is just a big box with one small shelf so you basically open the door and a whole bunch of hard-as-a-rock crap falls on your foot.

    Does anybody have a mini-freezer? Are they energy hogs? Are they a mess (leaking water everywhere or anything like that)? Anything else I should know?

    I have a mini freezer and I love it. Bought it about 8 years ago when I was living in a super tiny apartment where the fridge had no freezer compartment at all. Got it at Costco, it's 5.5 cu ft, it has never leaked, easy to defrost and clean, it doesn't seem to suck up a lot of power, it's quiet. It's pretty great.

    How big are those? Are they like around 4ft tall or so? I'm trying to picture how big is big enough.

    I have a small chest freezer, perhaps 3' tall x 3' wide x 1.5' wide the other way. Oh, and a stand up full sized freezer. Oh, and the left side of my fridge/freezer. All full. I am beginning to think I am ripe for an intervention.

    The little 5.5 actually hold a lot. The 7 cf was too big for me. I keep mine out on my deck. Costco had the 7 cf for $176. I forget what the brand is.
