I wish I could give this 5 stars because it is the perfect size for large coolers and does stay cold for long periods of time but after one use one of the ice packs is already bulging in the middle and the other ice pack burst in our freezer.
It’s cheap. It works and keeps stuff cold! I got this for my boyfriend who works outside. He has a small cooler that he takes for his lunch. This doesn’t leak and refreshes over night. It might be a little lumpy when you referees it but not a big deal to me. I have these I many sizes.
Those freezer blocks used to be good for the money, but apparently they changed the design - and quality. We used to have the freezer block that is also pictured here. The pictured freezer block lasted us for about two and a half years (which I think is fine for a below $5 freezer block), it bulged in the freezer and eventually broke on the side. The new ones that I got now delivered are made very poorly, they also look already cheap. And the worst thing, they "busted" in the package when I got it delivered, leaking the freezer liquid all over my package and ruining the other items. The cap came off that is on the top of the freezer block.
'Looks nothing like the photo; the sku is the same ( I triple-checked it) but the design has changed. The new design is thinner, wider, and tapered such that you cannot set them sideways on their edges if you need them to stand up that way, which I did…bummer! I think it's a silly design, but who am I to question the wisdom of roosters, bulls, hens & heifers? And yeah, even before freezing they are already bulging in the center.
This freezer block is horrible. I froze it solid for 3 days before I took it out of the freezer. I froze it flat but it managed to freeze with a big bulge in the center. I purchased 3 large blocks and 2 smaller blocks in the Target store and all of them behave the same. Besides not freezing completely flat, they begin sweating as soon as you take them out of the freezer. I dried them off with a towel a few times but they continued to sweat and get everything wet around them. I set them on the table and they soaked the table cloth. Putting them in a ziploc bag didn't help either. Reach into the lunch tote and everything is wet. Why? There are no removable parts and there are no holes in the plastic which feels pretty tough. Horrible product. I would not recommend them nor would I ever buy them again.
