How much of a pain the can is it to move deep freeze away from wall because of the towers on the lid?
Huh? I was referring to one that is horizontal (lid on top)not vertical or tower-type (lid in front like a fridge).
Like I said before, opening the door on an upright freezer allows the cold to drop out of the freezer onto the floor. When you close the door the freezer has to build up (or, in this case, down) to the set temperature.
With a horizontal freezer the cold stays inside when the lid is open and the freezer motor will not have to run as often. Better for your electric bill that way.
But, like the guy said, he's looking for our opinion.
