Finally bought a little freezer to give my fridge a break. Now I can keep the space-hogging breads, meats, nuts in there and use my fridge freezer for often-used, partially-used things. It takes so much less power than I thought it would and is almost silent. Why didn't I do this long ago??

I have always had a freezer in the basement to hold all my "extra" stuff. My daughter and son-in-law just moved to a new place and we bought them a small freezer for Christmas. Enjoy your new freezer!

I was thinking of getting one of these but in reading the "specs" saw that defrosting was "manual". So do you have to defrost these the old fashioned way?

No way!!! they are all "Self defrost" now.....they are so nice just for a little extra space for things like fruit, frozen meals, whatever....things on sale....go for it!!!!!

I think frost would only be a problem if it was overloaded or something. Mine is working great, and the heat here gets quite high during the day. It's very quiet, as well. And now I find the energy bill hasn't been significantly affected, either. I now have a plan to keep most unopened, extra things in the freezer and, once opened, in the smaller fridge freezer. So far, so good.
