Of course, I'd much rather have an easy-to-use contraption for chilling my beer ice cold in a single minute. But if I can't have that, I'll be willing to take this Beer Glass Froster instead, which conveniently frosts your steins like it came from the freezer in just 10 seconds.
That's right, no more leaving your beer stein in a freezer for long periods. Instead, just walk up to this appliance, put the glass under the spout, and press the button on top -- done, you've got a frosted glass in less time it takes you to tie your shoelaces in the morning.
Using an integrated clamp, the Beer Glass Froster can mount to the edge of a bar or countertop, where it will take up less space than a small coffee maker. It features an oversized spout that should cover the diameter of most beer steins and cocktail glasses completely, ensuring the frosty CO2 cloud emitted envelops the drinkware in its entirety. Of course, you'll have to connect this to a small CO2 tank (not included), which stores inside the appliance's boxy case, where it will sit away from plain sight.
When used, a set of blue LEDs shine onto the glass, adding an aesthetic effect to the whole proceedings. It doesn't actually help the frosting, but, hey, colored lights are always cool, so live with it. The whole thing measures 19 x 8.5 x 4.5 inches (h x w x d).
The Beer Glass Froster is available now from Hammacher Schlemmer, but priced at a hefty $399.95. I mean, come on, I can buy a lot of beer AND ice with that money...
