Insulated Picnic Basket
An insulated picnic basket is the excellently practical choice for when you are purchasing a model for when you head out picnic. Whether it's to the beach or at campgrounds, wherever you go, while your food is being transported it runs the risk of being exposed to heat that could ruin it before you have the chance to sit down and enjoy what you've packed up. This could mean wilted greens, mushy fruit or de-crisped vegetables that are just simply no longer appetizing.
For the most part, any food you'll be serving when you head out picnicking will be meant to be cold rather than a room temperature. A model with insulating fabric will help keep the temperature of your food essentially what it was when it was taken out of the fridge or wherever it was stored. This material also prevents heat from the outside getting in, a big concern since you'll most likely be picnicking on hot days.
The material is light and easy to clean, no more than a simple wipe down. Unlike a cooler, it isn't box or requires thick plastic. In fact, you can find various baskets and totes that look identical to a non-insulated model and you'll probably not even notice a change in weight. These amenities are not very expensive compared to other models, but provide major benefits as well.
For many models, the insulated part can be the entire storage area or just a small section, depending on you needs. Look around and decide what's best for your plans, you'll most likely find what you are looking for.
