Our 26 year old freezer went out recently so we went hunting for a new one. We wanted manual defrost because they are cheaper to run, quieter and food stays frozen better. We found this Frigidaire and got a good deal on it. It is spacious with 14.1 cu. ft. of space. There are 5 shelves in the door, 3 shelves in the main part of the freezer with a slide out wire bin at the bottom. Plenty of space but not too large. So far it is quiet and works fine. Started getting really cold as soon as we plugged it in.
