What’s a picnic without food? Of course, you do not want to have just any kind of food. Outdoor picnics or on the go meals do not need to consist of mushy sandwiches and tepid cans of soda. Picnic fare is more enjoyable when they are kept at the right temperatures. Salads and drinks taste great when chilled while soup and sandwiches are best eaten while they are hot. Now, you can have your meals at the beach, at the park, or any other outdoor areas in the same quality as if you were eating right in your own backyard.
Families who love to bring home prepared meals to their outdoor excursions often use ice chests or coolers to help them keep their food as close to their ideal temperatures as possible. The problem with these conventional coolers is that you also need to put ice or cooler packs in them to keep whatever is inside cool. There are plenty of cooler brands that have been around for generations already, but my latest find is one of the coolest in the market today – the Flip Box Iceless Cooler from Sunbrella.
Sunbrella’s Flip Box is a 24-L cooler that can carry as much as 45 cans of beverage. It is made of durable Neopolen P material that guarantees that it remain useful for a good number of years. The company is so confident about the quality of this product that it offers a 10-year manufacturer warranty. With all the technical stuff out of the way, here’s everything that I find great about the Sunbrella Flip Box:
- It’s convenient. The 47 x 25.5 x 42 cm built of the Flip Box is just the right size and configuration for our family’s needs. It’s not heavy at all to move around; depending, of course, on what’s inside. Even when I use it to carry several six packs for friends and fam, the fact that I do not have to add ice already adds to plus points in my book.
- It’s compact. Just as it is convenient to fill and carry, the Flip Box is also easy to store. When all the food is gone, you simply have to flip it down so it can fit in one corner of your trunk. It also does not have to take cupboard or shed space when you are not using it.
- It’s easy to maintain. Keeping your Flip Box clean is easy. You can simply disassemble the panels and stick them in the dishwasher. I don’t know of any other cooler that can be cleaned this way. With thorough washing, any spills or dirt will not cause stains or breed bacteria in your cooler.
- It’s practical. The Flip Box is not just for your outdoor activities and picnics. You can also keep the Flip Box in your car trunk to keep your groceries from the frozen section cold on your way home. This way, you don’t always have to rush home after your grocery shopping. You can even squeeze in some other errands because you are confident that your groceries will not melt in your Flip Box.
My family has truly enjoyed our Sportbrella Flip Box. We definitely consider it as the cooler alternative to the conventional bulky coolers. It would not hurt for you to check it out as well.
