Can you instantly chill a beer?
Well, you can now! The new decade is already looking brighter for beer lovers! We’re sure you’ve all wondered why we can instantly heat things up using a microwave, but can’t instantly cool things down. No more looking up “how to chill a beer fast” because the new “reverse microwave” has been unveiled at CES 2020 Tech Expo in Las Vegas.
What is a “reverse microwave?”
The Juno Device (a.k.a. the reverse microwave oven) is a device created by Matrix to instantly chill beverages such as wine or beer. The Juno uses thermoelectric cooling technology to take a warm beverage and cool it within seconds.
How does a reverse microwave work to chill beer?
The Juno cools your beer bottle or can by giving it a “liquid bath”. Using a thermoelectric cooling engine, the Juno spins water around the beer can or bottle at a high speed to rapidly decrease the temperature of the can.
Don’t worry, the beer is held still, so you can drink it straight out of the machine without worries of the beer fizzing up or foaming over.
According to MATRIX, the creators of the Juno, the device can chill a 12oz can of beer in 2 minutes from room temperature to its optimal temperature of 39F / 4C.
Did you know different beer styles have different optimal temperatures?
You might be drinking your beer too cold! Check out this article to learn the suggested serving temperatures of different beer styles.
The Juno is still in the prototype stage and can only chill one bottle or can of beer at a time, but this is excellent news for the beer geeks that forget to put their six-pack in the fridge. The Juno drink cooler is available for preorder starting at $199 [$260 CAD] (early bird pricing) on January 5, 2020. Shipping is expected to begin mid-late 2020.
