For a fun experiment, I purchased 2 bags of “sacrificial ice” and put them in the cooler I week prior to a trip. The cooler was in my kitchen with a constant 72deg external temperature. I started the stopwatch on my wrist to see what would happen. Nothing terribly scientific, but each day I checked the ice a few times. 1-week in, I still had about 1/3 of my ice remaining. So, I emptied the water, put some Yeti-Ice in the bottom, kept the remaining 1/3 of my “sacrificial ice” instead of putting in new ice, and packed the cooler with food and beverages for my weekend trip. None of the items I put in the cooler for my trip were pre-chilled. The cooler got good use on the trip - the kids could easily open the cooler during our drive and used it like a car refrigerator during the 3-day weekend trip.
When I got home, I emptied the remaining food and beverage cans, but there was still ice remaining. I decided to wait to see how long it would last. It turns out, 1 day shy of 2 weeks! Not only was there ice during this entire time, but the internal temperature of the cooler remained at or below safe refrigerator temperatures. This is far more of a buffer of temperature stability and food safety than I had anticipated and is amazing with respect to ice preservation. While this was not a scientific experiment, it was a practical one for me. Like some, I had read about the legendary Yeti ice retention with these products. But this cooler far exceeded my expectations!
Bought the lock so no one will take it! It needs an opener ans a basket would like a list of add on I can get for my hauler! But really need an opener!!!
