After months of complaining about cold weather and rain, I finally got my wish. Summer is here and it's getting hot. I spent the evening yesterday laying in a hammock, and more than once wished I had some ice cold water to cool me down. I think this Iced Carafe by Officeoriginair would have done nicely. To use, just fill to the indication level and place horizontally in freezer. Once frozen, fill with water. The ice forms a cooling strip down one side of the carafe, cooling the water.
