When you don’t have time to chill your beverages in the refrigerator, it’s Cooper Cooler to the rescue. Just add ice cubes and water, insert a bottle or can, set the dial, and hit the start button. Cooper Cooler circulates icy cold water and rotates the beverage container to quickly cool the internal contents. Carbonated beverages won’t explode after being chilled in the Cooper Cooler, since the containers are rotated, not shaken. If you’re worried about agitating the contents of a wine bottle, you can select the no-spin mode.
The inventor is Greg Loibl, who came up with the idea in 1992 while completing his undergraduate studies at Cooper Union. Later, while working on his thesis for a master’s degree in chemical engineering, Greg refined the design and built a prototype. Greg and his faculty advisors, Irv Brazinsky and George Sidebotham, received a patent for the Cooper Cooling Process, and a number of ambitious Cooper Union students pitched in and contributed their engineering and design talents to the launch of the Cooper Cooler. The rest is icy cold history.
