We chose coolers in an assortment of sizes, so whether you're just having a few people over for dinner or you're throwing a huge pool party, we've got you covered. The Keter Cool Bar is attractive, durable, and doubles as a cocktail or coffee table, making it our top choice. The Vingli Ice Chest can keep food hot as well as drinks cold, which is useful if you frequently cook for large groups of people. The Black+Decker Mobile Cart, Trinity Stainless Steel, and Clevr Retro all have large capacities and are on wheels, so they're easy to move even when full. When it comes to portability, the Belleze Wagon wins hands-down due to its large wheels and long handle.
