The Vacu Vin Rapid Ice Wine Cooler - Platinum
The Rapid Ice was developed in order to enable users to chill their wine promptly and keep it cold for an extended period of time thereafter - all without the need for an accompanying refrigerator or ice bucket. The cooling sleeve contains 6 pockets of specifically formulated, non-toxic gel that expand when placed in a freezer for a period of 6 hours or more. Upon removal, the Rapid Ice is simply inserted onto the outside of the wine bottle and then chills the contents within 5 minutes. Once cooled, the wine will remain chilled for hours. Multiple polyester foil layers and foam pouches within the sleeve ensure that the temperature is retained.
The Vacu Vin Wine Cooler is designed to fit any standard-sized wine bottle. The award-winning device is both flexible and virtually unbreakable. It is also lightweight and is therefore ideal for use at parties, picnics, barbecues, on holiday etc. Once used, simply return the item to the freezer for subsequent re-application.
The Wine Cooler was originally manufactured in silver. It has since been produced in numerous other colors and patterns including chrome, classic, black, grapes and vineyard. It is also available in the following formats: 1) a black or stainless steel Elegant Wine Cooler that accommodates the Rapid Ice within an attractive 'bucket-like' rigid shell; 2) a classic or platinum set that also includes a Champagne Cooler; 3) a Cooling Carafe that is housed within a sleek black or white capsule; and 4) a Wine Essentials Gift Set that also includes other high-quality barware gadgets (available in either black or white/purple).
