Birth of the Cool-Ven Concept
Cool-Ven was born out of necessity; the need to make daily nutrition more portable and enjoyable while on-the-go. Taking its styling and basic functionality cues from the “meal prep” industry, Cool-Ven combines the portability of a soft-sided and cool insulated meal bag with the convenience of an integrated and detachable meal heating chamber attached to the top of the bag with a robust zipper. This simple concept is an industry first and will soon become the ultimate standard in meal portability. Unlike what is currently available on the market, the Cool-Ven concept has married two essential, home-bound appliances (refrigerator and microwave oven) into one convenient package making it the first of its kind.
Cool-Ven features tough woven (600d pu) fabric outer panels with a (three 28oz. meal) cool insulated lower chamber, mesh pockets and a spill resistant liner. Attached to the top of the bag is a removable (zippered) insulated compartment which houses a 110-volt (55 watt) electric heating element (w/ a 48 inch. cord) designed to reach temperatures of 210 degrees Fahrenheit. The element is designed to be compatible with flat metal and all microwave safe containers. A side mesh pocket with elastic lip has ample space for a full sized, 24 oz. shaker or water bottle. The rear of the bag has a convenient luggage strap for sliding onto your collapsible suitcase handle which adds convenience during travel. Directly behind this strap is a slim Velcro pocket for storing your travel documents, ID’s, etc. A secure zipper pocket on the side of the bag has both mesh and fabric, elastic pockets along with a slide lock key hook for keys and other accessories. The bag is finished off with two handles and one adjustable shoulder strap. Should you decide to detach your heating chamber, there is a second handle on top of the cooling chamber which makes it convenient to use your two Cool-Ven compartments separately.
Cool-Ven’s main function is to be a portable, insulated cooler and heating chamber for meals ready to heat-and-eat while on the go. Never before has the “portable meal industry” been able to master this kind of functionality and design, until now. Cool-Ven’s main goal aims to decrease or eliminate the challenges of making your meals more enjoyable while on-the-go simply by applying heat to your food while away from your normally available, homebound appliances.
Cool-Ven customers benefit from a single portable unit designed to store AND heat your meals on-the-go. Other portable meal bags miss the mark simply because they have chosen to focus on the cooling features alone. Cool-Ven has mastered both in one sleek, functional, and transportable bag making it a better option for those who would rather carry one product versus two. Currently, the “portable meal market” has similar offerings but in separate products ranging in price from $110.00 to $149.00, retail. Cool-Ven has brought to market a superior product, both in quality and functionality, for a considerably cheaper price.
Health Benefits Of Hot Meals
Cold foods have a detrimental effect on the digestive system, they slow down metabolism which hinders weight loss and nutrient absorption. For people concerned with their health or with weight loss, heated food is a better choice. Eating warmer food often brings more satisfaction than cold. The thermogenic (warming) effect slightly increases the temperature in your brain so you feel more satisfied and happy with your meal sooner.
Cool-Ven has chosen to focus our reach not just on one target market but instead, the entire market of on-the-go individuals and professionals.
