Igloo Coolers are very strong and tough, but durability is just one of the benefits of an Igloo. Igloo Coolers are among the best insulated coolers on
the market today. Use the information below to maximize your Igloo Cooler’s performance..
Tip 1: If stored in warm places, a significant amount of ice will be wasted cooling the cooler itself. Pre-load your cooler a few hours prior to use with a sacrificial bag of ice to cool it down.
Tip 2: Warm ice is typically wet or dripping, and won’t last long. Ice that is colder than the freezing point is relatively dry and will last substantially longer.
Tip 3: Smaller, cubed ice will chill a cooler and the contents more quickly, but block ice melts at a much slower rate. Most pros use a mix of both to chill contents and achieve long-term ice retention.
Tip 4: Once your cooler is in use, do not empty the cold water. It will be almost as cold as the ice and will help insulate the remaining ice. However, exposed food and meat should be kept out of the water.
Tip 5: Every time you open the cooler, you are exchanging the cold air inside for warm air outside that must then be cooled, causing faster ice-melt. Pros sometimes limit their access to once per day.
