Yeah, I know. You wouldn't buy one and I wouldn't buy one either. But my son bought a used one and gave it to me a couple years ago for a gift. So I use it occasionally. Last week ago my wife bought some frozen meat up near Louisville and filled the cooler with ice. OK. I thought I would see how long it took to melt. Today was 9 days later and it still had some ice floating in it . You gotta admit, thats pretty impressive.
