Customer Reviews

We got one as a wedding gift and LOVE it.

Chills my beer/soda cans quick in one minute and my bottles in three and a half minutes and like they say, it dosen't fizz over which I was really skeptical about.

Problems: It's loud, generally from the noise of the bottle or can spinning but even the pump and water when used in the "no-spin" mode can be a bit annoying.

Good news: It worked as advertised. OK, maybe we left a can of soda in there a bit longer than instructed to get it really, really cold.

Bad news: When I went to demonstrate this gift to my mother -- the birthday gift recipient -- I brought with me a bottle of the white wine we were going to serve at my upcoming wedding. When I put the bottle in, it would not rotate because it sort of wedged into the device. I.e. the Cooper Cooler will not accomodate all wine bottles.

I am no wine drinker, but, as far as I know, there was nothing unusual about that bottle of white. It, like many other wine bottles I see on the shelves, was of the slightly more "stout" design. Is there a standard wine bottle size diameter-wise?

So here's the rub. If you know which bottles are the "standard" ones and those are the ones you want to chill, this will work. If you want to chill wines that come in bottles (only slightly) wider than that standard, they will probably not fit.

And forget chilling Champagne. They make no claim that you can chill Champagne and rightly so.

Other observations: This does use up ice. If you're chilling a bottle or two for dinner guests, don't worry about it. It's not overwhelming.

But if you think you're going to chill a case of beer during poker night, get a bag or two of ice cubes. Of course, if you're going to the liquor store for ice, why not just buy a cold case of beer while you're there instead?!

It takes up a bit of space on the counter, so you will have to store it somewhere when it's not in use.

It's not seriously noisy, but it is pumping water and spraying that water on a bottle that it is spinning. It is not a silent process.

Color Name: White with Smoke Lid Verified Purchase
When I saw this, I knew right away from my college beer drinking days that this would work very well. We used to buy crushed ice and lay hot beer cans on their side and spun them until cold. The drawback: you had to spin them yourself. What I wouldn't have given to have access to a device that provided the fastest and most effective cooling possible.

Pros:
-Works very well (but only if you load as much ice as possible)
-Works very quickly
-Small
-Handles cans, beer bottles, wine bottles, and even odd shaped stuff like juice boxes that you don't want to spin
-A surprising number of settings to suit your taste
-Did a lot of research. As of 8/1/2006 could not find anything even remotely close to this good.
-Spinning IS NOT shaking, so soda and beer do not explode
-Uses ice, not a liner that needs 8 hours of freezer time, both convenient and a space saving option
-Items are not submerged under icy water like other competing units, so you don't have to dredge for your drink in cold water

Cons:
-No power off switch...

Color Name: Brushed Chrome
Designed by Cooper Union engineering students who proved it was the most efficient way to chill beverages, the Cooper Cooler never fails to fascinate those guests who turn up at your barbecue with warm beer, wine, or soda. Happily, it also never fails to chill your potables to the core. Be warned, however, that you will consume a lot of ice in the process. (Since this device does not actually perform any refrigeration, you provide a mixture of water and ice which it cascades over the spinning container. The ice melts completely after only a few chilled cans, or one bottle of wine.)

Another caveat, which may not have mattered to those in the engineering lab, is that this thing is hell on paper labels, what with the constant water, and the traction from the rubber wheels. You may then choose not to spin the bottle, but it will take approximately twice as long to chill your beverage.

Such is life.

I've owned a cooper cooler for a few years now. After reading others reviews most seem to praise the cooler for what it does - cool stuff fast.

My 2 Cents:

As a tip I found adding salt to the ice and water creates an extra cold slush that lasts longer and chills the bottles & cans much quicker as the salt helps the ice water keep extra cold.

Does what it claims to do. Cools from room temperature to about 40 degrees in 1 minute for cans, 3 1/2 for bottles, 6 for a 750ml bottle of wine. Be prepared to burn through ice using this - about 16 cubes to start it up and around four cubes for each successive bottle/can you cool. It spins the bottle/can under a stream of icy water to cool your beverage in no time. Moreover, it sure beats throwing a bottle in the freezer and having it explode when you forget it. Despite the spinning there is no eruption from your can or bottle when you open it - just a bit of a welcoming "burp" when you pop it open.

Great for when you forget to stock your fridge and/or you have guests arrive and insufficient cold drinks on hand.
