The Smeg Portable Freezer Makes Alfresco Eating Cool

The wicker picnic basket is a delightful summertime icon, but practically speaking, something like the Smeg Portable Freezer is much better suited for the job. Think of the champagne, the white wine and the smoked salmon sandwiches that need chilling and protection from the season's heat, as this invention encourages extra class for your plein air eating.

At first, the hi-tech cordless appliance seems to masquerade as a food processor or a rice cooker, while in fact, designer Paula Hubiszta was inspired by Smeg's contemporary retro aesthetic for her project. Bold, slick and colorful hatched compartments create the ideal environment for sealing your snacks in with a fresh temperature, and the shiny silver handle allows the Smeg Portable Freezer to be carried quite conveniently to the perfect sunny patch of grass.
