How to Choose the Perfect Cooler
Having the right cooler to take with you to an event can make a world of difference in your trip. There are several different types of coolers available that work for different situations, so it’s important to pick the right one for your needs.
Consider these factors when choosing a cooler:
Consider Insulation Capabilities
Coolers come in every shape and size. Some are designed to carry large amounts of food, while others are just the right size for a six-pack of drinks. Others have storage areas for both food and beverages. Many have removable partitions that will keep your beverages from damaging your food. The key is finding a cooler that can carry what you need it to without being too heavy or too bulky.
Plan your outing before you buy a new cooler, so you will know exactly how and what you will have to carry. Softshell coolers are lightweight and are perfect if you don’t have a lot of space in your vehicle or you are using them for picnics. A stronger exterior, made of hard plastic or metal, is recommended if you are planning long trips and camping.
Choose the Right Size
Small lunch coolers carry only what you need for one meal. There are large coolers that will carry bulk packages of food and beverages and have additional insulation for maximum cooling. This additional insulation will keep your food fresh for several hours without having to re-stock the ice. Buying the right size means less wasted space and better efficiency.
The larger the cooler, the harder it is to move from place to place. Large coolers are now being manufactured with wheels and a retractable handle that allow for easy movement, including up and down stairs. Handles are often adjustable making it easy for almost anyone to move. Before purchasing a new cooler, take the time to use the adjustable handle and make sure it moves smoothly.
Coolers come in every shape and size. Most are capable of holding both food and beverages and often come equipped with wheels making it easier for you to get from point A to point B. Some even come with features like charging ports for your cellphones and tablets.
Don't just buy any cooler. With all of the options you have available to you, choose the one that is perfect for you.
