A summer party is incomplete without refreshing drinks and chillers. And drinks and chillers of course need to be chilled properly. In case you have an outdoor party, you can beat the heat by investing in a solid beverage cooler. You will find here a guide to how to pick a cooler and some of our top picks.
What to consider before buying a beverages cooler:
Before we suggest to you some of the best beverage coolers available here are some guidelines to consider when buying a beverage cooler. There are many options available on the market and it can be a bit confusing on how to choose between them. Have a look at the following considerations:
Before you search for the right beverage cooler, identify in your head the placement of the cooler. Are you buying it for your outdoor kitchen or are you in need of an easily portable freestanding unit. If the cooler needs to be fitted to a designated outdoor place make sure you have the accurate dimensions, the depth, width and height of the place to fit it properly.
• Size and weight:
Most modern coolers are made of plastic; hence they are lighter in weight. However, you will have to consider the interior and exterior volume of the cooler especially when you are to place it outdoors.
The capacity of the cooler totally depends on your usage. Are you planning to buy one that accommodates large gatherings or is it for small weekend parties? Usually, the bottle capacity ranges anywhere from 6-150 bottles in one unit.
• Ice retention time:
Ice retention is the length of time a cooler can maintain its ice inside. You will find high-end coolers that consist of a conforming tight seal to maintain an internal temperature of the cooler for a longer time. However, ice retention time primarily depends on two factors:
- How often the cooler opens
- The outdoor temperature where the cooler is being placed
