    When I had a freezer that needed defrosting I'd place a large pan of boiling water in and shut the door. I'd go back and refresh it as it cooled... made a miserable mess.

    We are on the "empty" side of our upright freezer. It's coming up Hurricane Season and the last thing we need it to lose that much food if the power goes out.

    However, we've often said we'd have a heck of a street party if it did!

    I can't imagine why a dryer would hurt your freezer. But I don't know what a fish slice is? (A thin boning knife)?

    Oh! A spatula!

    Heck. I've used those on defrosting tons of times. (Shhhh, I've been known to use a knife too. ).

    We don't have freezers that need defrosting though now...

    Yes, you have to be quite careful. :D

    My Grandmother had a renter one time who did the same. It was a really old refrigerator and the freeon started leaking out. THAT was exciting.

    So, was this a stand alone freezer or the freezer unit of your refrigerator?

    I thought so, but wasn't sure.

    We were surprised to find an upright that did not require defrosting. The only trouble we've ever had with it was when the socket it's plugged into was tripped.

    Thank heaven we discovered that before it was a real disaster.

    So, could you make a milkshake with that raspberry stuff and throw in some of your own raspberries? Did you freeze any of those? :D
