Rubbermaid Cooler

Rubbermaid Cooler

I admit to a dash of nostalgia on reviewing this cooler – whilst it has been slightly updated, this is the cooler that my grandparents used in their caravan when I was a small child!

And the truth is that they were right – for the money, this really is the best value cooler you can buy.

Sure, it might look old fashioned, and the insulation is a little less good than that found on high-end coolers, but I think that this cooler has a certain feel-good charm which sets it apart from more modern coolers!

PROS
  • Whilst the small size of the cooler may put some people off, it is perfect for a short trip to the park or the beach.
  • The shape of the cooler, whist not being the most rounded or streamlined on the market, makes carrying it very intuitive. You can just lug the cooler up onto your shoulder, or use the carrying handles.
  • Whilst the insulation is a little thin in comparison to other coolers on the market at the moment, it is definitely adequate, being able to keep your beer and soda coo for a few hours. As long as your trip is short, or you drink your beer quickly, you will have no problems with your bottles getting warm!
  • And in case unfortunate spills happen inside the cooler, the inside is fully wipe-clean.
  • In fact, the plastic material the cooler is made from is a joy – sturdy and easily cleaned, and lasting longer than many of the soft beer cooler designs on the market today.
CONS
  • Well, the Rubbermaid cooler is not going to win any awards for innovative design or cutting edge technology, but if you are after a no-frills design that does the job for the cheapest possible price, this is the cooler for you. Keep your beer cold the way your Grandparents did – it never did them any harm!
