Make Defrosting Your Freezer Easier - Video

 

Summary: Freezers build up lots of frost over long periods of time, but you can prevent some of this build up. The next time you defrost your freezer, coat the inside with a thin layer of cooking oil. As this video shows, the freezer will build up less frost and be easier to defrost in the future.

The following is the transcript of the video:

For those of you that still have to defrost your freezer, either because you have an older one or because the frost-free mechanism does not work as well as advertised, there is something you can do to make the whole thing a little easier in the future.

Unfortunately, before you can use this trick, you have to make sure that your freezer is already defrosted. Just remember as you are doing this that it will not be as bad next time you have to do it.

Once you have your freezer defrosted, all you need to do is take a little bit of cooking oil. Take a paper towel or cloth, and pour a little bit of the cooking oil onto it. Coat the inside of the freezer with the cooking oil. Make sure to cover it completely, but also make sure not to use too much. A thin layer is the best. Any more, and your food will be covered with oil before you even cook it.

That is really all you have to do. After the oil has been coated, you are ready to use your freezer. Just use it as you normally would. You will find that less frost will accumulate, so any future defrosting will be much easier to handle.
