Re: Using Dry Ice for Cooling backup for refrigerator?
said by Mr Matt:1. I've gotten a "chunk" of dry ice for $10 at a local dry ice place. It was not measured carefully, sawed off in a few seconds and given to me in a paper bag. I'm guessing 3-5 lbs.
how much did they have to purchase to keep the food cold for 6 or 7 hours?
Was there any problem with Dry Ice lowering the temperature to much in the refrigerator compartment?
I put it in a cooler to keep ice cream solid for a few hours for a picnic. The ice cream was so hard I took it out a half-hour early to thaw it a bit. The dry ice in the cooler lasted well into the next day and we had some fun with it the next night.
2. If you have freezer stock that you're concerned about, put the dry ice in the freezer compartment only. I wouldn't be concerned about the fridge.
