Reality Check

  • Claim:

    ProntoBev chills a whole bottle in 30 seconds.

  • Reality:

    Since ProntoBev is stored in the freezer and cooled down to the paralleled temperature, when pouring a relatively small amount of liquid (750ml) into the chilled device, cooling could potentially occur in this time frame.

  • Claim:

    ProntoBev chills just about any drink

  • Reality:

    Carbonated drinks would pose difficulty when using the ProntoBev.

Something To Think About

The ProntoBev appears to primarily geared towards wine because the 30 second claim is specifically referring to cooling the beverage by 20 degrees. This means going from 80 degrees to 60 degrees which, for most, is not cold enough to enjoy a soda or similar beverage.

  • Claim:

    Built-in Thermometer

  • Reality:

    Easily achievable possibility.

Something To Think About

The placement of the thermometer sensors, could potentially cause variance for the temperature reading for a beverage as a whole.

  • Claim:

    Won’t Dilute the Taste of Affect the Quality

  • Reality:

    Since no chemicals or liquids are used to make the beverage lower temp, quality should not be affected.

Something To Think About

After cleaning, if water remains inside of the ProntoBev, and is then frozen while still inside, the wine or whatever beverage that is being chilled could be slightly diluted.

  • Claim:

    ProntoBev is dishwasher safe!

  • Reality:

    Dishwasher can cause a heavy amount of wear and tear on any device. The quality and build will drastically affect the ability for the ProntoBev to be dishwasher safe.

Bottom Line

ProntoBev is a well thought out product that caters to a wide array of end users. The tech and structure line up to support the claims of use. However, keep in mind that there are certain limitations that physics will keep in check. Back to back use will cause different results. Freezer temperature settings will also affect energy transfers of cold to hot, the lower setting the lower the end result will be. Water can potentially stay inside after use or cleaning and could potentially water down a beverage if not taken care of.
