Yes I have looked at this on Amazon. Reviews say Low temperature, low battery use, what is good.

I made her suffer with only having a full size Sub Zero side by side. Those Engels are very nice by the way.

Please remove that photo before my wife sees it and I wind up in the Engel.

Make sure she uses the vacuum sealer, you'll last longer and stay fresher.

To be fair, this was the only kitchen we had for almost 6 years.

Having adequate refrigerator and especially freezer space is huge to us. It's nice to be able to load up, especially on meats, and not have to go shopping for them during the trip. We vacuum seal everything that goes into the freezer on the boat and at home.

If one is a carnivore cruiser, but lacks the ability to provision on a Costco scale (or even if you do), then whilst in the Ft Lauderdale area, I have one valuable piece of advice: hie thee to Penn Dutch.
