I have both a chest freezer and an upright one. Meat goes in the chest freezer which is in the basement. It isn't a self defrost which is good as it doesn't warm up to get rid of ice and wreck the meat. Hardly any ice on the sides at all. One thing you can help with that is after cleaning the chest freezer, spray it with Pam spray and then if there is an ice built up, carefully use a putty knife to get it off. Yes I know you could poke a hole in it, that is why I said carefully. The upright freezer is nice for all the other stuff. You can see what you have in there easier. With putting meat in the chest freezer, I make sure and put everything in a certain place. I don't just dump.
