Front drainage

Most chest freezers must be manually defrosted, with some models incorporating technology to assist you in defrosting. Models with a front drainage system are easier to maintain, more energy efficient and give you better temperature control.

Once the appliance has defrosted, water can be drained into a suitable receptacle through a pipe or opening on the front of the appliance for easier, cleaner freezer maintenance.
