kept beverages cold for several days over the holidays
THIS WAS A GREAT ITEM FOR THE PRICE. WORKS REALLY GOOD IN THE SNOW COUNTRY WITHOUT ANY ICE IN IT. KEEPS FOOD FROZEN LIKE AN ICEBOX.
When I travel, I like to bring at least one cooler since I don't like to eat all meals at restaurants. When I run out of food or ice on the road, I re-stock at nearby Wal-Marts or grocers. I wanted to find out who makes the best coolers, so I took one of these, and two other coolers from two large "usual suspect" competitors on a lengthy California trip. The Rubbermaid kept ice colder longer than the other two. It's a heavy duty, quality product.
I have been a fan of Rubbermaid products for years and this cooler is no exception to the rule. I have found it to be very durable, we take it fishing and it has gotten banged up pretty bad and is still in very good shape. I have had it for 3 years.
For people into cat rescue or if you have an outdoor kitty needing a warm place for those cold nights this cooler makes the perfect digs. I bought a 6 inch round drill attachment and cut a perfect hole through the short side just under the handle. Inside I laid a polyester hvac pad cut to size (that retains body heat) available from local hardware stores. I taped the lid shut to avoid it opening by accident and placed it in a shed (or under an overhang)where the elements won't get into the hole. A short 6" round piece of thin pipe can be placed into the edge of the hole to help keep rain out if you don't have a shed. Just be sure to tape the sharp edges. Cat lovers will find it is a great way to protect their little friends from the cold in the winter.
My Husband says this is an excellent product. He loves it. We have used it on vacations . We have also used it temporarily as a fridge. It holds a lot of food and drinks. We have had this cooler for a lot of years and it still works great.
