What Our Customers Say

Our Techniice chilly bin has allowed us to be in remote locations for many days at a time. A very good and robust product.

Jackie Dempster

I have purchased a 125L Chilly Bin for the back of my boat and it is the greatest chilly by far. I froze water in the chilly bin and it lasted total of 19 days before ice was almost gone.

Andrew, Te Awamatu

Just to give you some feedback on the chilly bin and freezer packs we bought 10 days ago - they are excellent! The bin and packs kept all our food and freshly caught fish really cool and cold when placed between the packs. Many thanks again for the trade.

Graeme, Canterbury

Paul, I thought I should let you know that no one can quite believe the ice-keeping abilities of your bins. Two days, two dozen beers and two bags of ice emptied into the 45 litre bin and nothing melted. The ice was still the same shapes out of the bags. Five days and 70% of the ice had melted and the beer was still ice cold. Just amazing…
