It is winter,supposedly here in the midwest of the US.
Not happening,not yet so far.
With the Super Bowl,if anyone is familiar with that, the question is,what happens when you forget to put the beer in the fridge?Don't have any snow to stick it in because of global warming.
So you will get unhappy guest cause all you got is warm beer.
The answer to global warming is right here to save your dumb butt.


A new refrigerator displayed by LG on the eve of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas promises to make drinks ice-cold in just minutes with a feature known as the "Blast Chiller."
"Imagine you have a can of lukewarm soda," said Wayne Park, president and chief executive of LG Electronics North America. "It takes 40 minutes to chill it, even in a freezer. "This cuts it down to under five minutes," Park said.
"It's perfect for a can of beer on a hot summer afternoon." The Blast Chiller distributes cold air throughout the chiller compartment of the refrigerator using jet flow to quickly cool down room temperature cans or bottles.

Back in the day when I needed a cold beer fast,I would put it in a bucket of salt water/ice, and spin it for a minute.

For those not knowing about quick chilling,the same applies to ice cream.

God bless new tech!

I have got to get me one of these!

There's nothing better than something that's ice cold on a hot day, and to have it in less than a few minutes is just simply amazingly awesome.

This is the epitome of American though; where we can't even wait an hour for a drink to cool off before we can enjoy it, so we blast it with jets of cold air to make it get there faster.

Hey KD. You can google green death jello salad...many links come up. It's what it's always been called my whole life. This is just one recipe for green death. In the South, someone always show up with it for a holiday dinner.


Green Death!

One of the ladies at our weekly pot-luck often brings this dish when
she's in a bind or a hurry. I don't mind, as I absolutely cannot
resist it:

1 small pkg green Jello
1 cntr of cottage cheese
1 small can crushed pineapple
1 cntr of Cool-Whip

Mix pineapple and Jello till Jello desolves. Add cottage cheese.
Fold in Cool-Whip


That's it!

I call it the Green Death, cuz despite my hating Grease-Whip and
supposedly avoiding dairy products, I cannot resist eating this stuff.
I kid her about the name, but she knows I love it.

Is there a proper name for this dish? She says you can use any combo
of flavors, subbing mandarin oranges and orange Jello, marischino
cherries, etc. I guess one could call it a Jello ambrosia, of which
I've have a million versions of, but they all used pre-set gelatine.
This does not, which I think makes it kinda unique.

you know you can chill a beer or a can of soda in under 30 minutes by throwing ice, some water, and salt in a cooler and mix it up...

salt acts as a type of antifreeze it lowers the freezing point of water down to 25 degrees F so you can chill nearing anything fast....

another method is to use food safe glycol but you reduce capacity that way......

water is a better medium for heat transfer because water has a higher heat capacity that air......

Myth Busters did a show on this.

Basically, yes the salt and water thing was one of the fastest ways. But, the Fire Extinguisher to the cans was the fastest. I don't recommend it though.

Ah, beat me to it! The fire extinguisher works the best, I've done it many times...
