Upright freezer

This may be the year to purchase a freezer if deer season is successful . I prefer an upright model , but don't know what is a good dependable model or brand . Any suggestions from you folks that have them ? thanks much....Finn

Enjoy each day afield as if it were your last.....take the time to take it all in !

Re: Upright freezer

I have no suggestions on uprights ...why do you like them so well?

Easy to find/see what you put in it,and I don't have to crawl in to get the item on the bottom of the freezer.

Re: Upright freezer

I think it is easier to rotate older stock and organize shelves . Digging to the bottom of a chest freezer is not for me.

Re: Upright freezer

I have the chest model also for the capacity; however I just put in the 2 bucks I shot recently and while arranging the packages I found some old deer meat and a package of bear meat hidden in the bottom under the wives frozen pizza.

To avoid this again I have everything in boxes with the dates and turkey, deer, fish etc.

Re: Upright freezer

First good luck getting one. Thanks to deer season and black Friday deals lowes, costco, bj, home depot, best buy and a few others are a week out on ordering as of this past Saturday.

We found one at home depot it is a maytag 15.8 stand up on sale for 421. It has a several modes including deep freeze. It has been working great for the last week since we purchased it. It does not have all the bells and whistles such as door alarm or digital control but it is big and works great.

Re: Upright freezer

We have two 15 cu ft chest freezers. They take so much less electric than the uprights also. We raise our own beef and we have a system worked out for how we store it in the freezer. We stack in rows from front to back so no digging is necessary. burger on the end,a divider, then roasts, a divider and then steaks. Roasts and steaks are mixed up as they go in so, no matter what we want, a piece like that is on top. A full size angus lasts the two of us about a year. Pork, poultry and venison go into the other freezer, separated the same way.
