As of February 2015, third party online sellers on Amazon sell frost-free chest freezers. The freezers are also available on specialty sites such as BeverageFactory.com.
As of February 2015, the Amazon seller BuilderDirectSupply sells a 13.5 cubic foot frost-free chest freezer. BeverageFactory.com sells a smaller 8.5 cubic foot model for people who do not require as much space; furthermore, it offers optional extended service contracts to protect buyers against possible breakdown. Homeclick also sells a 21-cubic-foot model for people who need extra space.
Frost-free chest freezers tend to be more expensive than freezers that require manual defrosting. However, some advantages of chest freezers include increased available space and energy savings. Energy savings occurs because cold air sinks; therefore, less cold air is lost upon opening the door when compared to upright freezer models.
