Manual defrosting means puddles all over the kitchen floor and the hassle of finding somewhere to store all your food in the meantime – no-one has time for that. We’ll walk you through the different types of defrosting tech that you’ll come across in fridge freezers, so you can ditch the defrosting for good.
Static cooling is one of the oldest cooling systems. It means that you will need to manually defrost the freezer and de-ice the fridge compartment on a regular basis.
Low frost means that there will be reduced frost in the freezer but it won’t stop any ice build up in the fridge. You will still need to manually defrost the freezer from time to time.
Frost free refers to the freezer compartment. You won’t need to defrost the freezer although you many still find condensation and moisture build up in the fridge.
If you never want to defrost your fridge freezer again then look out for Total No Frost technology. It constantly circulates cool air around both compartments stopping any ice from ever building up on the cabinet walls.
