Comment: Icebox Coolers & Eskys

Hi all,
I was wondering if people have any opinions/ experience with the plastic type iceboxes regarding the lining material?
I remember when these first surged onto the market a few years back that I found a brand that was more expensive, but boasted a 'food-grade' inner lining. It was apparent from a quick look that the inner shell had been plastic welded to the outer shell and was definitely a different colour, although I couldn't say for certain that it was actually a different grade of plastic?

They all market themselves as food grade, as that is inherent in the polypropylene or polyethylene itself. These days all the iceboxes I've seen in the stores (and I've checked out almost all the brands in the last few months) were all rotomolded so what you're describing isn't the norm these days.

Thanks Michelle!

Maybe it was just the early day ones that had a non-food grade outer. Or maybe it was someone trying to sell me something unnecessary ;)

The best one that I have used is the EvaKool fibreglass ice box.

I own a 70 litre Techni-ice cooler,that holds block ice for at least 7 days,during Summer heat waves. Very good piece of kit.

I can also vouch for the Techni Ice with mine holding block ice for 4 weeks on a trip last winter through SA. They definitely do have the food grade lining.

You can buy them on ebay we actually bid for ours and got it quite a bit cheaper than the buy it now price however don't forget to factor freight cost.
