This large, 3 litre ice bucket has a retro look that would look great for parties, BBQs, or just day to day use. Finished in a classic cream the outer tin bucket captures the essence of mid 20th century design. As well as looking good it is also extremely practical. This ice bucket with lid means you can keep up dust, pollen, pesky insects and other contaminants from your ice, particularly if you are using it outdoors. The lid also helps to retain the chill and keep your ice colder for longer. Inside the metal ice bucket there is a plastic container that provides double wall insulation and catches melt water to minimise the potential for damage to the outer surfaces.
When full of ice or cold water as well as drinks, this large ice bucket could end up being heavy. That’s why we’ve added two metal handles to the side to help you lift, transfer and turn it. You can also make serving ice a breeze with the aluminium metal scoop that comes included and is much quicker and easier to use than ice cube tongs. There’s even a hanging hanging hook on the side of the bucket so you can keep your ice bucket and scoop together during use and storage.
This ice bucket is perfect if you want to chill a bottle of champagne for a special occasion. Simply sit the bottle in the the bucket and surround it with ice and cold water then put it on the table ready for serving. You can also use this ice bucket for beer or wine bottles.
If you want to chill a bottle in this ice bucket then it’s best not to fill it with ice. Surprisingly enough, simply sitting a bottle on ice won’t be very effective. When you use it as a bottle chiller pour in cold water (about 1 litre, depending on the size of bottle you want to chill), pop the bottle in the bucket then fill the rest with ice. The melting ice keeps the water chilled, and cold water keeps the ice chilled.
Want to chill that bottle even more quickly? Add some salt to the water. Salt lowers the freezing point of water so you can chill it down to less than zero degrees. Use about a two tablespoons of salt for each litre of water. Dissolve it in a couple of tablespoons of warm water first to create a paste or slurry like effect. Put the ice on top then pour the cold water over that immediately.
