    HOW TO MAKE ICE LAST LONGER
  • Always pre-cool your beverages and food before placing in the cooler
  • Pre-cool the cooler by placing ice inside it and/or placing it in a walk-in freezer for 24 hours prior to packing it
  • Freeze plastic bottles of water; the frozen water will act as ice and will keep the other items in the cooler colder
  • Line your cooler with bubble wrap; the bubble wrap creates an extra insulation barrier
  • Pack items in your cooler in chronological order based on when you plan to use the items; pack items used first last
  • Make sure you pack the cooler tight and full
  • When your trips are more than one or two days, use larger blocks of ice instead of ice cubes; blocks of ice last longer
  • You may use dry ice within an Engel DeepBlue cooler dry ice requires special care and handling but will keep your food dry and your cooler contents cold the longest
  • Always try to keep your cooler out of the sun
  • Always try to minimize the amount of times you open the cooler, quickly taking out what you need and closing it right away
  • Always latch the cooler's lid shut
  • Do not drain the water from the cooler; the cold water ice melt helps keep the items inside colder longer


  • Using these tips will help you maximize your ice retention. Engel has had people report back that their Engel DeepBlue Chest has kept ice for 3 weeks or longer. After 3 weeks out on an expedition, they still came back with ice left over.
