I would not. Automatic defrost is what you should be looking for.

We bought that last week and it arrived on Friday. It was easily the cheapest we could find on the market at such short notice, particularly because our freezer was overflowing at the time and we needed something cheap and quick to deliver. Estimated delivery when we ordered it was Friday, and it arrived as expected on Friday.

After 3 days of using it, we have no complaints. It does what it advertises to do, and our stuff is frozen with no issues. It looks to be pretty energy efficient as well, and very space efficient. If you're looking for a cheap and compact freezer, it does its job. It's also very lightweight - I was able to move it myself with no issue.

We've never had to defrost our stuff in any of the freezers we've owned in my entire lifetime, so I can't comment on the drain cap defrost vs. auto defrost.

Chest freezers are a bit passe these days no? Upright is a much better idea in general, though granted they're not as cheap.

i thought chest freezers retain their cold better when you open the doors. Mind you I bet its negligible.

It does. Cold air stays sinked at the bottom. Instead of a regular fridge where all cold air "falls" when you open the vertical door.

You don't really want auto defrost for long term storage, it'll suck the moisture out of your food, aging it faster. Meaning it will go through cold - warm - cold cycles. Good for your kitchen freezer, not so good when you buy a 1/4 cow.

Weird. When I put in my postal code to get proper tax estimate it went OOS right after, it still shows as that for me when though another poster shows it back in stock. Is it possible Walmart has specific online stock for specific provinces? Seems to make no sense to me if they did that though!
