Cutting boards on the back of the freezer

I wish I could thank the person who said he bought some thin flexible plastic cutting boards and placed them on the back of the freezer. What a marvelous idea!!!! We have a 4 door Norcold and usually takes over 2 hours to defrost. I put in the plastic cutting boards with some trimming, but also some overlap last September. The frost was from. 1" to 1 1/2" on the back. Nothing on the sides doors or bottom. I emptied the freezer, reached the plastic, pulled one edge and the ice fell away. The plastic bends where the ice does not. It took me longer to unload and repack the freezer than defrosting. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

That is a great idea. Thanks for passing that on.

This reminds me of the Atlanta ice storms, I used Visqueen over the car windshield overnight. Peels right off, beats all that scraping.

Other methods

A long time ago when I had hair I tried a hair dryer to melt the ice. It was slow and when I saw the water in the bottom of the freezer I thought of the warnings about not using the hairdryer in the shower or bath. So I gave it to my daughter. And now you know the rest of the story.
