Stinky Engel Coolers

I just got back from a week on the Main Salmon. I had both my Yeti and Engel coolers, one on my boat and one on my son's. I had plenty on ice left at the end of the trip in both coolers, but the plastic smell in the Engel just won't go away. I had a carton of milk that after 10 days in the cooler was in fine shape except for the fact that it tasted like drinking plastic to the point that it was undrinkable. I called NRS, whom I bought it from, and they said it was the seal and gave me a "try this" remedy that I wasn't too keen on. I then called Engel and they also said it was the seal that smells and they are sending me a new seal made out of a different material.

Just wanted to let other Engel owners know about the smell remedy. I had tried baking soda with no luck. Apparently the smell is only in some of the earlier coolers.

vinegar also helps with odors, you might try that.

The baking soda worked good for mine.

Milk, you took milk on a river trip? That space and weight could of been used for beer and JD. Just kidding my friend has an Engel cooler and had the same problem, I will tell him about the seal. Thanks

Yes, milk. I think that is a first for me, but I had to bring granola for the last group breakfast and I don't like yogurt, so I brought milk.

And since I had 2 coolers on the river, space wasn't a problem. Plenty of icy cold beer. And a little Single Malt.
