No Frost or Frost Fridge: Which is best?
If the normal temperature of the food is -17 degrees C. How much would the temperature of the food rise to in its defrost cycle?
Is it convinient to have a no frost because of this fluctuation?
Food temeprature would increase very little in the short period of time the defrost system is activated since the defrost heat is not in direct contact with the food and the resulting warmed air is separate from the main compartment and not being circulated at that time.
BTW. The freezer of a manual defrost refrigerator does not get as cold as frost free model's so frozen food kept there won't last as long (nor freeze as fast in the first place). That is the main advantage of a frost free model over a manual defrost design... besides the periodic defrosting necessary.
