ProntoBev Indiegogo Video
When you’re ready to party, you don’t have time to relax, much less relax with wine. Luckily, there’s a new gadget that can help get your grown-up drinks ready in no time. Meet ProntoBev, a clever little gadget that can chill your drinks below zero in less than 30 seconds. Portable and easy to use, the ProntoBev from Pronto Concepts promises to be a replacement for your melting ice buckets for summers to come.
Effectively a cooling carafe, the interior of the ProntoBev is made of stainless wine steel, the same material used in the winemaking process. This means that you will not change the taste of your drink by using the device. Simply pour your beverage of choice into the ProntoBev (whether wine, spirits, coffee, tea or water) and wait about 30 seconds for the contents to drop by 20 degrees Fahrenheit.
So how does it work? ProntoBev actually uses a substance known as ProntoGel to absorb heat from the liquid through stainless steel walls. It’s activated by cold, so to use ProntoBev effectively, put it in the freezer first to make sure the gel is cold. But then, when it’s all over, you can relax.
Thanks to the built-in thermometer, you can always see the temperature of your drink in ProntoBev to determine if it is good to drink or not. And with a capacity of 750 milliliters, you can place an entire bottle of wine in the device without any problems. Plus, the whole thing is dishwasher safe, so cleanup should be pretty easy.
ProntoBev can also be used to quickly brew iced coffee or iced tea, without the need to use ice that will ultimately dilute the flavor of your caffeinated beverage. So no matter what you want to drink, you can drink it cold.
You can pre-order the ProntoBev on Indiegogo for an early bird price of $99 and get the ProntoAer (which the team claims is the world’s fastest aerator) in the process. Estimated delivery is in March 2018.
