Upright Freezer- Manual or Defrost?
I may need a new freezer and am having a hard time deciding if I want to get another manual defrost.
I know, for many of you this is a moot point! Who wants to defrost a freezer?
But I have always read that manual defrost keeps food so much longer and fresher than constantly having the temperature fluctuating.
Now, however, I am reading this is not true. That upright manuals are not better - that it is only the chest type (not an option) that work much better.
Any thoughts to help me decide?
I do not have a food saver and and I don't harvest anything or buy sides of beef, etc.
It seems like I throw a lot of stuff out because of ice crystals but that might be because my freezer is off kilter.
