Our smaller freezer died. In the process it too 4 gallons of blackberries, 5 gallons of strawberries, several #s of venison/beef/pork, and a few other goodies that hide in freezers. Going with an upright this time. Not as efficient but a lot easier to keep up with things. Question is: what brand do you recommend, size, is there an onboard audible alarm available, and any other good info? Thanks wc Just checked the large one and we had transfered some of the packages of sweets to it--at least we can have a few good cobblers yet.
