Ice tends to melt slowly and when it turns into water, it needs to be drained out, filling the cooler completely with new ice.
A certain amount of heat energy is required to melt the ice. While this energy is absorbed by ice, the temperature remains almost the same, however, it starts turning into water.
An ice cooler box is meant to insulate, meaning the heat from the outside barely makes any difference. A big chunk of ice requires a lot of time and heat energy to melt. Even if the ice chunk starts melting, it keeps the food or beverages cold that are touching it.
