What is frost free technology?

Find out everything you need to know about frost free fridge freezers and how you’ll never have to defrost again with our helpful guide.

Frost free technology makes sure that there’s no build-up of frost in your fridge freezer, so you don’t have to manually defrost your appliance. There are different levels of frost free tech, ranging from basic Low Frost that’ll still need some defrosting, to Total No Frost that’ll prevent frost in both the fridge and freezer compartments.

What is Total No Frost?

Total No Frost technology makes sure that you’ll never have to manually defrost your fridge freezer again. It does this by constantly circulating cool air around the appliance, preventing any build-up of ice on the cabinet walls.

Fridge freezers with Total No Frost, like this model from Hisense, saves you from wasting time defrosting. It also keeps your freshest food from drying out. It’s a win-win, right?

What is Frost Free?

Fridge freezers with frost free technology stop the build-up of ice, meaning you’ll never need to defrost your appliance. It works by keeping the perfect humidity level in your freezer and circulating fresh air around the compartment.

This circulation of air will also keep your frozen food fresher for longer by preventing any nasty tasting freezer burn, which occurs when your food is overexposed to oxygen.

What is Low Frost?

If you’re on a bit of a budget but still want to spend less time defrosting, Low Frost technology is the perfect option. This simple tech reduces ice build-up by up to 50%.

By occasionally warming up an evaporator on the inside of the freezer walls, it melts away ice without affecting your frozen food so it’s much easier to defrost. As well being a breeze to maintain, Low Frost technology will also help you save on your energy bills.
