Good luck with the freezer grumpy! We have two chest freezers in the basement.
Is it a frost free chest freezer? regular chest freezer? Upright?
Here’s a helpful hit for our newest member of the freezer club: Freezers are happiest when they are full. When the freezer is full, it will cycle less, which is good for the compressor unit. It will also hold its temperature better in case of a power outage. As you won’t likely fill the thing up right away, you can add containers of water (not full so they don’t split when freezing). As you add food to the freezer, you can remove the containers.
