Samuel Johnson's Dictionary

  1. Coolernoun

    Etymology: from cool.

    Coolers are of two sorts; first, those which produce an immediate sense of cold, which are such as have their parts in less motion than those of the organs of feeling; and secondly, such as, by particular viscidity, or grossness of parts, give a greater consistence to the animal fluids than they had before, whereby they cannot move so fast, and therefore will have less of that intestine force on which their heat depends. The former are fruits, all acid liquors, and common water; and the latter are such as cucumbers, and all substances producing viscidity. John Quincy.

    In dogs or cats there appeared the same necessity for a cooler as in man. Gideon Harvey, on Consumptions.

    Acid things were used only as coolers. John Arbuthnot, on Aliments.

    Your first wort being thus boiled, lade off into one or more coolers, or cool-backs, in which leave the sullage behind, and let it run off fine. John Mortimer, Art of Husbandry.

Wikipedia

  1. Cooler

    A cooler, portable ice chest, ice box, cool box, chilly bin (in New Zealand), or esky (Australia) is an insulated box used to keep food or drink cool. Ice cubes are most commonly placed in it to help the contents inside stay cool. Ice packs are sometimes used, as they either contain the melting water inside, or have a gel sealed inside that stays cold longer than plain ice (absorbing heat as it changes phase). Coolers are often taken on picnics, and on vacation or holiday. Where summers are hot, they may also be used just for getting cold groceries home from the store, such as keeping ice cream from melting in a hot automobile. Even without adding ice, this can be helpful, particularly if the trip home will be lengthy. Some coolers have built-in cupholders in the lid. They are usually made with interior and exterior shells of plastic, with a hard foam in between. They come in sizes from small personal ones to large family ones with wheels. Disposable ones are made solely from polystyrene foam (such as is a disposable coffee cup) about 2 cm or one inch thick. Most reusable ones have molded-in handles; a few have shoulder straps. The cooler has developed from just a means of keeping beverages cold into a mode of transportation with the ride-on cooler. A thermal bag, cooler bag or cool bag is very similar in concept, but typically smaller and not rigid.

  1. Cooler

    A cooler, cool box, portable ice chest, ice box, chilly bin, or 'esky' most commonly is an insulated box used to keep food or drink cool. Ice cubes are most commonly placed in it to help the things inside stay cool. Ice packs are sometimes used, as they either contain the melting water inside, or have a gel sealed inside that stays cold longer than plain ice. The portable ice chest was invented by Richard C. Laramy of Joliet, Illinois. On February 24, 1951, Laramy filed an application with the United States Patent Office for a portable ice chest. The patent was issued December 22, 1953. The Coleman Company popularized the cooler with its initial offering of a galvanized cooler in 1954. Three years later, Coleman developed a process to make a plastic liner for coolers and jugs. Coolers are often taken on picnics, and on vacation or holiday. Where summers are hot, they may also be used just for getting cold groceries home from the store, such as keeping ice cream from melting in a hot automobile. Even without adding ice, this can be helpful, particularly if the trip home will be lengthy.

Examples of cooler in a Sentence

  1. Hudson Henry:

    There’s a primal connection to our past and our placement in the universe, when the middle of the day goes dark and there’s this weird ring in the sky instead of the sun and it gets cooler and shadows are weird and silvery…It’s going to be the kind of moment to put goosebumps on your skin if you are paying attention to it.

  2. Phil Weiser:

    Excessive and unnecessary force can happen when situations could have been handled in cooler manner but is unnecessarily and unduly escalated. One way it happens, someone shows up and the way they present is in a way that raises the temperature, this situation could've involved no force but ends up involving significant force. That's unnecessary, excessive. Lots of situations weren't criminal, just problematic policing.

  3. Elizabeth Warren:

    We were so sick of circle time,' Itsy Bitsy Spider' and places renaming classes to make it seem cooler. At the end of the day, it's still a class about shapes, and that's not engaging to the parent, we wanted to [ bring in ] theater and pop culture, and get designers involved, led by friends of ours in this design community.

  5. Mike Halpert:

    There is significant difference between this event and (19)97 as well as 19(82). We’re not quite sure why that is, if you look at the ocean temperatures, we know it’s warmer in the western part of the Pacific than it was during these other strong events but it’s actually a little cooler in the eastern part.
