Follow these easy steps for best performance!
Pre-Chill your cooler!
(Remember, if your cooler is warm and if you don’t pre-chill, it will stay warm, the IceWall designed insulation is amazing!!)
Using one or two bags of ice, depending on your cooler box or bag size and design you have - get your cooler temperature down to 'cool to the touch' - and overnight if possible. When satisfied, empty this chill ice out and begin packing. For optimum results all food and beverages should have already come from your home fridge cold or even frozen.
Filling & Using your cooler
With your accessories already packed in the cooler first, go ahead and fill your cooler box or bag with ice. A minimum of 1/3 ice is needed - and for best results you should try to get 2/3 ice to contents / ratio.
Fill your cooler as much as you can. You do not want any air space, as when opened this has to be re-chilled and can lower your ice retention.
(Remember, keep your cooler closed as much as possible. Only open for as long as needed when placing items in or out as this will reduce the ice retention times)
Pre-Use & Cleaning
Ensure all cooler surfaces inside and out are cleaned before and after each use. Gently clean around the cooler gasket to ensure no food or drink deposits are left. Don’t forget you clean and dry your plug (Store closed with plug inserted)
To prevent any stains, ensure cooler is stored empty, wiped dry between uses and kept closed for storage.
Simply use warm water with a mild detergent for general cleaning. Ensure no harsh chemicals or cleaners are used as this can may damage or discolor your cooler box or bag.
Keep your cooler closed as much as possible. If you have young children for example, who will access your cooler continuously, consider a separate cooler for food and drinks.
Keep your cooler in a safe and dry location out of the sun when possible. Vehicle temperatures inside can be considerably hotter than outside and will affect your cooler performance.
