Well designed Chill Chest transports with ease looks great and can be reduced in size for easy storage. When my freezer failed my Chill Chest saved all my frozen goods

easy to use and handle - very positive asset to average home.

published

Very simple - stacks well also with other components taken along. All elements stack into chill cases as well and they stack well on top of each other providing stability when travelling with them in vehicle.

Purchased in November 2018.

Look after your food

A great product that keeps your food cool and fresh in our hot Australian days.
When not in use stacks away easily taking up little space.
A must when you go shopping.

The Chill Chest is used each time I get my groceries. I just put the whole bag of cold and frozen items into the chill chest and they are perfect till I get home.

Nothing miraculous but did the job

published

I used it over a few days when I spent Christmas at my sons/daughter-in-laws. Their fridge was full so it was good for all the extras we had. Kept putting in icepacks and iceblocks from the freezer and it did the job. Wouldnt put loose ice in it as it would leak out when melting. Now starting to use it in the car for shopping. No issues so far. I think it is equivalent to an esky which needs ice but it has the benefit of folding down when not in use.

Waste of money

published

I followed the instructions exactly and it didn't perform as advertised. Everything melted, it dripped water and made my car a mess. I purchased it at the Australia Post and am shocked that they would sell such a shabby product. I would like to return it, but after the disastrous first use, I left it in the cupboard and now I am sure the return period would be lapsed. Don't waste your money and end up with soggy, unedible food and a wet car.

Does not keep small amount of frozen food frozen or can you stall in the car for cars as advised as

published

I drove three hours from geelong to st arnaud, I had a couple of frozen dinners and a can of drink . The frozen dinners thawed out but drink remained cold . I have only used once , and have not fill it up yet , but so far Im not inpressed . It also states can keep in car that's rubbish, it became so hot had to put ice in it , still didnt keep food frozen.. I wouldnt recommend putting a few frozen items in , as I found out it doesnt stay frozen. .

Waste of money

published

I placed icy poles and ice cream to test the chill test. Items melted in a matter of minutes, its a waste of time and money. Just watch videos on Youtube, all ended with disappointment.
I surprised how they are still selling this bix thst has absolutely no function what so ever!

Waste of money

published

Absolute load of rubbish does not keep items cold at all complete waste of money. False advertising and cannot carry when full. I would never recommend anyone buy this product, its not even worthwhile sending it back for a full refund as I would waste more money.


Waste of time and money

published

Doesn’t keep things cold for long enough. Road trips in Australia can be hours, and this product does not work like they say it does. Any liquid in it will leak, it’s not sealed. Any frozen stuff quickly defrosts. Don’t buy this! Spend your money on a real cooler with a reputable brand and guarantee.

Works well

published

Easy to use and transport in the car keeps things frozen and cold very happy with the purchase recommend to all and are resonably priced too was quick delivery too.


It is a 2 hour trip from where I shop till when I get home. Everything was defrosted and melting

published

Fine when its empty, difficult when full. It was not easy to handle when it was full. To the point I thought it might break. I am not happy with product and wish I had not spent $ 60 on buying it :*

Do not waste your money

published

Easy to transport. Did not keep food cold. After 4 hour drive everything was warm. Had to throw out everything for my family reunion. Wasted so much money on this item and the food. I am disabled and I have very low income. So sad!

Does not work as advertised

Easy to fold and carry. It does not keep ice or frozen stuff solid and thaws quick. I put stuff in large trash bag first and covered with blanket, did not stay frozen long. Stores easy.

Great product.

published

Use it for shopping. Ice Cream still frozen aftyer the two hour trip home from the shops. All other items frozen and cold. Better handles would have been preferable as it is hard to carry around when full and heavy

NOT WORTH A PENNY- NO STARS

published

This might be the worst money I have spent on a cooler!! I put cold cans in one and I put cold food in another going to my daughters softball tourney. The cans were warm within a couple of hours and the food was not worth eating after only the 2nd game, cheese was melted and condiments were warm. I tried to put ice in the cooler with the cans and it melted all over everything in the wagon within 30 minutes.
This was not worth the money I paid of 39.99 for the first one and not even worth the extra $10 I paid for the second one. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT, TOO LATE FOR ME TO TAKE BACK SO I AM STUCK WITH IT. I have offered to give them to people and they won't even take them.......

How different is this Chill Chest to the Pollar Chest which is half the price?

Polar chest is a knockoff that does not have the same level of thermal efficiency.

It doesn't. It's an insulated box.

The Chill Chest works by maintaining its temperature by locking in the cold air if using cold items/ and likewise for hot.
Its made out of lightweight polypropylene .

Its like a small refrigerator with its door kept shut during a blackout, but for only a short period.
I'd say that it serves its purpose when its filled with cold supermarket, or party foods, (or only hot items, like freshly cooked pizza, or Fish n Chips) for a maximum of 25 - 30 minutes.
It only slows temperature change and is not suitable for drives of 100 - 150 km distance. For THAT task, I recommend a 12V powered Food Warmer / Cooler, and these can range from $90 - $400 depending on the capacity.
