Every so often, if I want to get a bottled beverage cold quickly, I’ll put it in the freezer for 10 minutes and then enjoy it. It’s not as good as a slow chill in the fridge, but sometimes, I can’t be bothered with waiting.
The problem is when I forget that I’ve put that bottle in the fridge. Like, the last two times I’ve put bottles in the fridge. The most recent time, it was a plastic bottle, so while the bottle got a little deformed, I just had to wait for the ice to melt. But the time it was a glass bottle. Said bottle had shattered at the bottom, held together only by the frozen gluey consistency the drink inside had turned into.
By the way, I can’t be bothered to set a kitchen timer to remind me there’s a drink in the freezer. Instead, I’d much rather than bottled beverage maker fix this problem with technology.
