This 'Microwave For Cooling' Chills A Bottle Of Wine In 5 Minutes
There's a special place in hell for warm white wine - and there's nothing worse than popping to the shop to pick up your favourite bottle, only to find it's being stocked on the shelves, not the fridge (why?)
But now, one company has come up with a genius idea that means you'll never have to load your glass with ice again. Say hello to Juno, the 'cooling microwave'.
Specifically, it makes wine cold in five minutes as well as cooling beer and soft drinks in as little as 60 seconds.
The clever product uses thermo electric technology, which draws heat away from your drink, leaving it the perfect temperature in minutes
The idea, which has been successfully crowdfunded via Indiegogo, was revealed at the CES technology conference in Las Vegas last week, where creators demonstrated its ability to cool wine quicker than we can drink it.
Creators, Matrix explain: "Once a beverage is placed inside the chamber and Juno is activated, the chilled water rapidly spins around the beverage to quickly lower its temperature.
"Juno has a water-release valve, allowing you to easily replace the water used to cool your beverages after several uses, if desired."
Its sleek design allows pretty much any kind of drink to be placed inside - from cans to carry cups and various shaped bottles.
It also has a handy LED bar to indicate when your vino is at the perfect, "sommelier-recommended" temperature, which will change from red to blue when it's ready to sup.
Creators had both red and white wine in mind when designing the product, so while we like our white wine ice cold, there are three heat settings to choose from.
The convenient product doesn't come cheap, however and while you can currently snap one up for $199 (£152) via the crowdfunding website, Juno will eventually be priced at $399 (£304).

If this summer proves to be as hot as the last two, we may have to splash out...
