This is an awesome product!!
I bought this ages ago & use it regularly!! I keep it folded in my car boot as some times I have to travel a bit after doing my supermarket shopping. I have even kept frozen foods Frozen in it for an hour or so!! I just love it. I would just love it if they produced a smaller one as well for when I just have a few things to transport!! I highly recommend it!!
Great. Love it
Very easy. Folds away so it takes up very little space. Easily unfold and keeps food chilled for hours. Great to put on bench when you run out of fridge space when having a party.
Best thing I've ever bought!!!
The chill cases are very easy to carry and transport. They are light and stackable when empty and have convenient "handle" things for carrying when full. My grocery shop is 45 minutes away and everything stays in the condition it was purchased, even ice-cream. Best thing I've ever bought. Even keeps my cream cakes fresh for the local monthly market. Brilliant!!
No frozen berries for me :(
Frozen berries defrosted, cool things stayed cool, easy to store,easy to carry, just like a carry bag, false advertising, grrrrr, not a cool product for frozen foods,ok for drinks and ice cream etc if you're going to eat/drink within 20 minutes or so.
Purchased in July 2019 at SHIPLOADS for A$20.00.
easy to use and handle - very positive asset to average home.
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.
Great car cool storage container
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
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
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
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
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 time and money
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.
It is a 2 hour trip from where I shop till when I get home. Everything was defrosted and melting
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 :*
Questions & Answers
How different is this Chill Chest to the Pollar Chest which is half the price?
Global Shop DirectGlobal Shop Direct
Polar chest is a knockoff that does not have the same level of thermal efficiency.
How does it work?
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.
