After lots of recent research, convinced I should be getting a chillzilla or plate chiller (latest is always greatest, right?), I ended up getting an immersion chiller. Primary reason is that if you dig deep enough, both the CFC and plate chillers seem to have issues with cleaning. Since I know myself and I know I'm not always the most careful when it comes to cleaning, I figured the safest bet is to stick with the immersion.
When I read about how adding a whirlpool will make an immersion chiller nearly as fast as the others the deal was sealed. It also gave me another excuse to get a pump. So, for about the same price as a plate or CFC chiller, I ended up with an immersion chiller and a pump which will serve many other purposes.
