chest freezer, do you need to unfreeze them in Thailand ? Not automatic auto defrost ?


Recommended Posts

I am led to believe that to make the deep freeze more efficient, if it is not full of frozen goodies, is too pack all the empty spaces with scrunched up newspapers inside cardboard boxes or large 3/4 full plastic bottles of water.  I was told this 20 years ago!

 

I am sure the experts will have an opinion!!

how much does it cost ?

 

11,000 baht  almost 2 years ago   it was more expensive ( per cubic foot) than the lay flat non frost free types

but suits our very small apartment better  using the space vertically rather than taking up more floor space and having to keep the lid opening area clear too.

Ours probably gets opened twice a day. Defrost when the basket won't slide, probably every 18 months or so.

 

Madam just runs down the contents and moves all the stuff into our upright fridge-freezer (which is frost-free) whilst the big beastie thaws out.

 

At least it doesn't take long here.

 

Panasonic 13Cu ft, looks like the new version is auto-defrost https://www.homepro.co.th/p/1013416

Google translation of the specs: "With a hot air blowing system To defrost and water droplets"

Could that be a real auto-defrost one wonders?

Check out PowerBuy, they have defrost free chest freezers, I have bought two of them over the last 10 years. I keep it outside on my balcony with a cover and the heat and humidity doesn't seem to affect it much, I had to replace my last one about 4-5 years ago.

??  Am I paying more or less for the missing defrost feature?

 

For those missing the joke... (defrost free ≠ frost free)
