Cooler on track to become highest-funded Kickstarter campaign ever

July 31st - via: escoffieronline.com
For the cooking enthusiast who is tired of traditional coolers, a highly funded Kickstarter campaign may have the answer. A new cooler, dubbed the Coolest, looks to give beach-bound and tailgating chefs more functionality out of the age-old cold storage space. Surprisingly, this campaign failed to raise enough money in the past, but now having crowd-sourced over $7 million, the Coolest is on track to be the most successful Kickstarter campaign of all time. According to Kicktraq, the Coolest could gain over $20 million in funding by the campaign’s end. A cooler having such success has surprised many, but the Coolest could be the perfect summer solution for preparing for a barbecue or day by the lake. (Read More)

The Coolest Cooler

July 8th - via: dudeiwantthat.com
Is it cool enough to be called the Coolest? You decide. After months of anticipation (well, my 6-packs, margarita mix, and I were waiting with bated breath) the Coolest Cooler has finally launched its Kickstarter campaign. Yeah, it's cold. Throw in some ice, some brews, and some perishables and this cooler will preserve their chill and their freedom from bacteria and spoilage.
