Frequently Asked Questions
How long will the ice last in your iceboxes?
We tell people that they can expect to get up to 5 days using block ice but we have had ice that has lasted 10 days in 33 degree celsius heat. It all depends on the way your icebox is packed, the ice you use and the environment you are in so here is a basic idea of how we advise you to get the maximum performance out of your Icey-Tek icebox.
Make your own block ice using plastic containers (the older the ice the longer it will last) then 1/3 fill your icebox with the block ice and put your food and drink in, preferably from the fridge as if put in hot the ice will melt quicker. We recommend that you loosen off one of the bungs slightly so the melted ice can drain off as we have found that when the ice has water around it the ice seams to melt faster. Storing the icebox in the shade and minimizing the opening of the lid will keep everything nice and cold for days. We have gotten A good quality Icey-Tek gel pack will also assist in keeping the ice from melting especially if you choose to use party ice.
