Trying out a new drink cooling system? Sounded like a good job for the Houseboat magazine staff. Getting a one-of-a-kind experience out of a drink cooling system? An expected delight. The HOPR system exceeded our expectations at every turn and would be a fabulous addition to any houseboater's galley. 

The HOPR is a self serve, self cooled, stand alone, beverage server. It holds up to 96 ounces of your favorite drink. We love it because it really works unlike some other gimmicky concepts. Once the eight of us emptied the pitcher, the Super Chill Rod in the middle of the pitcher kept cooling as we refilled. There was no stopping to refreeze; we just poured in the liquid and sat back and marveled on cool our drinks were.


"It keeps drinks colder for longer than anything else I have ever used," said Houseboat staff memberTerri Duncan. "It is the perfect thing for a party with lots of people or hanging out with the family."


We were told this machine typically turns into a conversation piece and that's correct! The elegant design caught everyone's attention as soon as they boarded the boat. The HOPR spins on a swivel base so everyone has easy access yet it's extremely stable so rougher waters won't be a problem.


Besides being wonderful to look at, the features make this device. It's extremely easy to clean, which is important for those of us who don't want to spend a lot of time working in the galley. Since it doesn't require electricity, it can be set up anywhere, which makes it a homerun for the top deck.


We also love the hands free spout. "With the tap on the bottom you just push your cup against the spigot," said Houseboat sales rep Chris Searle. "It gives the machine a professional feel."


So let's review. Keeps drinks cool for hours. Easy to clean. Light weight. Sleek look. Perfect for an on-the-go lifestyle. Yep, this is an A++ in our book. Visit www.hoprs.com for more information.
