Thanks to my husband's green thumb and greenhouse, we really don't have enough freezer space (just four drawers). We've been looking at big side-by-side refrigerator-freezers, but just realized that they won't fit through our kitchen door (old house with doors to every room). We've therefore decided to get a second freezer and put it in the cellar. I like the idea of a no-frost freezer because of the energy efficiency, but I'm worried about the service life. My mom has had two - the first lasted five years, and the second just three. A friend's gave up the ghost after 6 years. Our current fridge-freezer (not a no-frost) is 13 years old, and still going strong. Has anbody had a no-frost that has lasted, say, 10 years? Did you have to defrost it? Was it really that energy efficient? The brands here are different, so I'm not looking for a recommendation of a certain brand, but just your general experience.
