q: Am i right you fill this with ice and then pack your food and drink in? Keeps your food very cold if you don't open the lid much? It would do the same with ice packs?
a: Yes that's the idea, anything cold will work.

q: Is the drain plug at the bottom of the bin so that melted ice does not sit in the bottom regards ALAN

Keeps frozen food frozen for at least 4 hours, which is a long as I've had the opportunity to test it so far. Very happy with it.

This ice box does what it says it will - it is a good square shape and makes a good table at a picnic.

Didn’t think this would work like the reviews but it is really fantastic. Ice kept for 3 days - had gone watery of course but there was still ice. Brilliant.

This is a great chilly bin. It's a bit more expensive than other chilly bins out there, but well worth it! Lots of room for everything and easily stays cold for 72 hours.

After a bit of research we went ahead and bought two of these Ice boxes. A 55 litre and a smaller 22 litre (for frozen meat) and the reviews were spot on. After camping for 2 weeks in the very hot North Island, we found that ice stayed frozen for over 3 days and always kept everything cold. The best prices were at Trade Tested, and shipping to Whangarei was literally overnight.

Dometic Icebox review

True to the advertising this thing is bulletproof and keeps ice frozen for days ensuring our chilled foods over the holiday period stayed fresh. The latch system is excellent and the drain bung is in the right place to allow for draining the ice-melt. Construction is way more solid and easy to carry than our old blue/white traditional chilly bin. Highly recommended.

This ice box has proven to be all that and more!!! Its easy to be skeptical about some claims but happily the ones about the performance of this cooler are right on the money!! Choice!!

Domestic Cool-Ice 55L Ice Box

These ice boxes are awesome! I have the larger 110L one and was so impressed I’ve now bought the smaller version for trips to the beach, camping, etc. Went on a hunting trip and put only one bag of ice in it from the petrol station (wasn’t even from the deep freeze like at home) with only fridge foods and it lasted from 8am Saturday morning till Wednesday morning 7am. Drain plug is great. Very strong, easily use as a chair. Why did I waste my money on all those other plastic air ones! Trade tested was $65 cheaper than anyone else and very easily purchased and picked up.

Camped for a week up North from mid-January and still had a juice bottle of frozen water not completely defrosted on our return home. Pack it well, don't open it much and your Waeco Cool-ice will do the business!
