but I'm not (so far) enjoying the stoop-to-get-anything aspect of it.

I am with you on that. Stooping is one challenge. The other challenge again is peculiar to me and people with my particular visual issue. I can see things at eye level much more so than things at floor level.
When I first got my fridge with the freezer drawer at the bottom I was delighted. Circumstances changed. I think I could work much better now with the freezer on top.

In my experience, it depends on the frequency you use either level.    I need access the freezer only several, maybe 4 times, a week.   The fridge, multiple times a day.

A minor tip, but the jar lifter from your canning set works really well for removing ramekins from their water bath.

 

I made creme brulee for a stepdaughter today (our little tradition) and did just that, and thought I should maybe post it.
