While looking for a 3-5 gal cooler for my new Anovo Sous Vide cooker, I ran across the 10 and 20 quart Rubbermaid coolers at Home Depot, both priced just under $10. I picked one of each as the 10 qt model is convenient for everyday cooking and the 20 qt model is convenient for larger meals. Of course you can also use them as a regular cooler. Apparently one of the advantages of the 20 qt cooler is that it is tall enough for wine bottles.

10 Qt -- $9.97: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rubbe...739613-_-N

20 Qt -- $9.98: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rubbe.../205877554 OOS

One reviewer at Amazon demonstrated how he had modified the 10 qt cooler for his Joule Sous Vide device:

Unfortunately this model is no longer being made, so Amazon does not have them in stock for a price comparison. However I did find what appears to be a similar model at Walmart. The 10 qt model was $18.49 and the 20 qt model was $26.79.

Sous Vide cooking doesn't go above about 185°F and is generally well below that. If it were going to melt the plastic of the cooler, it'd melt the bags the food is in first. Remember, everything in sous vide is less than boiling water, so fresh coffee or tea is hotter than the water in the bath.

In fact, most people cooking sous vide use plastic food containers, I use this one. https://www.amazon.com/Rubbermaid...000R8JOUC/

A cooler helps save electricity and allows you to have a larger bath/cook more food while not losing as much heat.

You're using a clear polycarbonate container rated for 212F. The white polypropylene food containers are rated for 160F. This Rubbermaid cooler is made from a different plastic that a Rubbermaid representative has stated in the past should not be used above 120F, although people have guessed the material may be rated for 150F according to the latest NSF data.

In short, no one should recommend using a cooler for utilizing the full range of sous vide cooking. However, it is up to the individual to decide on their own whether or not to risk going against safety recommendations.

I wouldn't say ideal for it... The lids are a pain to cut and the sides aren't great for hooking onto. Just head down to your local restaurant supply store and pick up a polycarbonate food container and lid.

Too late. These so-call chefs will drive up cooler prices like bitcoin miners drove up GPU prices. Say goodbye to affordable tailgate parties and home brewing. Both were OOS at the HD I just came back from.

I don't know... is this a removable or hinged lid? If it's removeable, you could use a hole saw, like this: https://anovaculinary.com/sous-vi...ler-guide/
