Frost Boss Cooler Review

We've all been there before:

You have a case of your favorite canned beer or a 12 pack of soda and you're thirsty. Trouble is, you don't want to have to wait 45 minutes for the fridge to do its job or wait 15 minutes for the freezer while risking an explosion. And you certainly don't want to water-down your soda or beer with ice like a pleb. There has to be a way! This is America! If we can put a man on the moon, surely we can find a way to cool down a frosty beverage in a reasonable amount of time.

That's where the Frost Boss Instant Beverage Cooler comes in.

The Frost Boss is spins a regular 12 oz. can around a hopper full of ice and via thermal induction, cools a warm can to ice cold in two minutes. And once the Frost Boss is done spinning, you don't have to worry about the contents of the can exploding out when you open it. I picked one up for myself recently and gave it a quick run-through and a review. Below, you'll find my video review of the Frost Boss in action.

Now, this isn't a new concept by any means. I seem to recall there being a similar contraption being marketed a few years back called the Blitz Chiller. If memory serves, the Blitz Chiller was bulkier than the Frost Boss and it had to be plugged in whereas the Frost Boss is battery powered. The feature that wins the game in the Frost Boss vs Blitz Chiller debate is that you can separate the Frost Boss spinner from the hopper and use the spinner against anything that holds ice (like your cooler). That makes the Frost Boss much more portable.

The only real issue I have with the Frost Boss is that it only supports a standard 12 oz can. So, if you're using the new Budweiser skinny can or the old Heiniken keg can, you'll probably be out of luck. And I'm pretty certain a beer bottle won't work with the Frost Boss. Maybe they'll remedy that in future versions.

The frost boss is a awesome chilling machine for its simple design. compact size, extremely portable for off the grid lifestyle. A must for people who love the great outdoors and not be chain to heavy equipment to chill a simple beverage!! Perfect for tailgaters, beaches, bbqs or anywhere on the go!!

Pros:


  • The Fost Boss is compact
  • Frost Boss is portable
  • Frost Boss chills your can in 2 minutes
Cons:
  • The Frost boss really needs a carrying pouch to keep everything together
  • There's no water trap, so the Frost Boss pools the melted ice at the bottom of the receptacle

The Frost Boss usually costs you about $30, but they run a lot of sales on the website, so you might be able to get it cheaper. Head on over to FrostBossCooler.com for more info.
