I just got myself a GE chest freezer. A little 7cu feet one. I have a small apartment at the moment and eventually will be living in a 43′ camper trailer so keeping a large or upright is more difficult. The one complaint I have about the chest freezer is exactly that, you have to dig to get to things. It’s not so bad in this little freezer as I keep everything in tubs and sort them as well as possible so if I wanted to get to something I just pull out a tub or a couple tubs to get to the bottom. But with larger cuts of meat and a larger freezer I’m not quite sure this would work as well.

As for the manual defrost I just check mine whenever I open it for build up and use a car window scraper for ice and frost to get it off. it cuts back on how many times you have to defrost (my dad used to do this same thing). If you are getting lots of buildup I would say to check your seals, they could be bad or just old and worn out. I don’t believe they are difficult to replace.
