‘Tis the season for a glass of a crisp white or a refreshing rosé and if you’re impatient like me, you want it now and you want it cold. I picked up the Vacu Vin Rapid Ice Chiller about a year ago and I haven’t used an ice bucket since. This little baby fits in the door of your freezer and will chill your bottle in about 5 minutes. There’s no mess, minimal waiting time, it maintains the cold well and it enjoys walks on the beach (or in the park or over to your couch). It’s also cheap – the link above is from Amazon, where you can get 2 for $8.99. I’m jealous because I only have one. They also offer a Champagne chiller, but I’ve used this one on all of my bottles of bubbly and it does just fine.
One response to “Chill out”
This technology is so superior to ice buckets or, worse, the common practice of sticking a bottle in the freezer — which takes a heck of a long time to chill wine plus once every few years you forget a bottle and it explodes.
