Shelly Palmer Radio Report – September 11, 2014

The next time you go to a barbeque, you’re going to want to make sure you bring The Coolest along. A brand new cooler design, The Coolest recently became the most-funded Kickstarter campaign ever after raising more than $13 million in its 52 day campaign. There are plenty of reasons for the campaign’s 60,000 backers to be excited about The Coolest. Built into the case is everything you need for food prep and storage – a blender, cutting board, knives, plates and even a bottle opener. The cooler portion also includes a divider to keep your drinks icy cold while making sure your food stays chilled but not soggy from melted ice. The Coolest is more than just food prep, though. It also has a few cool tech bits, like two waterproof USB ports and a waterproof Bluetooth speaker. The Coolest will make its way to backers in February, and will be available to the general public sometime after that for $299 – just in time for next summer’s barbeques.
