I'll have to try this, and if it works as advertised, I'll have to say this is the "coolest" instructable yet. What I wonder is whether insulating the outer container (on the outside) might not even keep the food frozen longer. In other words, wrap the outer container with something insulating and then wrap the duct tape around that to hold it. Here's the kind of thing that I'm talking about - thermal fabric that keeps hot things hot and cold things cold.
