Beautiful but style over substance

I have always wanted one of these retro Fridge/Freezers and I totally love it from an aesthetic view point however I fail to understand why Smeg can't give us a Frost Free freezer section, given it is a modern and very expensive unit. Just because it has a retro look doesn't mean we have to go back to the dark ages of freezer defrosting. It would be bad enough if it only need doing occasionally but mine starts icing up again pretty much as soon as I've done it. Very disappointing. For that price, it should be functional as well as pretty!
