There are lots of good reasons for investing in a cool box. For a start, nothing is better than an ice-cold drink in the park on a hot day. Plus, foods that are usually stored in the fridge shouldn’t be left out for more than 90 minutes, so keeping them at fridge-equivalent temperature at a picnic or barbecue will ensure you don’t end up with an upset stomach.
Sturdiness: Coolers are often heavy when they're packed, as the weight of cans, ice blocks and food all adds up. We wanted handles that made it easy to hold.
Portability: Unless you’re only planning to use your cool box in the garden or for fridge overflow, portability is important. Extra points were given where coolers were especially easy to transport.
Keep-cool capability: This was key to our choices, being the primary function of your cool bag or box. A good seal and effective insulation were a must.
Additional features: In-car electric chargers, wheels, drinks holders and easy-carry options were well rated among the sea of products on the market.
