Cold . . . It Does Your Milk Good!

There are two major issues when looking for a milk cooler: Safety and Product Quality. Our goal when formulating a milk cooler is to have milk served to our kids at the proper temperature. Milk like all dairy products is very sensitive and is best when served cold. One degree can greatly affect product quality. The reason more adults do not drink milk is because milk was not properly chilled when they were young. The resources are available today to serve milk at its best.
What do you look for first? Forced-air is key. Forced air is essential for high performance and maximum cooling. The alternative to forced air is cold wall construction. Cold wall construction will freeze milk at the walls and milk in the center will be warm. Forced air cooling allows you to store milk overnight without freezing. For best product protection, milk should be held at 32F to 38F. Your milk cooler should be able to hold these temperatures without the worry of ice build up. Average shelf life at 40F is 2-5 days. Shelf life decreases rapidly at higher temperatures.
There are many features that you should also take into consideration. Look at the energy efficiency. Models using a minimum of electricity are built with superior insulation.
How does the interior look? A white anodized aluminum interior is easy to clean and presents a bright sanitary appearance. You will also want to make sure the interior won't rust, peel or chip. An exterior mounted digital temperature monitor is a very important feature and should be standard with your cooler.
Wrap it all up in 300 series stainless steel with a heavy duty reinforced interior bottom and you have a milk cooler that will never let you down.
