Canada and Australia chill glasses, 1966

Ikon Quick-Frost Glass Chiller

Ikon Quick-Frost Glass Chiller

I just found this thing in a box; it originally came from my grandfather’s house. It’s the Ikon Quick-Frost Glass Chiller and Sterilizer. It has competing “Made in Canada” and “Australian Made” labels (the Australian one is the round sticker inside the plastic unit, with the red boomerang; while the can reads Made in Canada). I’m going to try out this device and will report. Are these illegal now? They must be dicey in more than one way, ecologically speaking. Below is an for it in the December 6, 1966 edition of the Sydney Morning Herald! It came in woodgrain! The 60s were so hilarious.

    I hope that you don’t ingest anything nasty (by not consuming anything out of the chilled glass maybe?). Or just apply to any warts (liquid nitrogen).

    Or use instead of pepper spray, if someone gets too… overheated?

    My father passed away in 2007 and I finally had the nerve to clean out his bar/family room area a few weeks ago. I found a similar device in my dad’s bar area. I remember him using it at home parties/gatherings with the family. It was called “Kan-O-Frost for Chill-Master JR. Glass Froster.” The can read, “it is a Special Formula Liquid Gas. It is a Non-Toxic, Tasteless, Odorless and Harmless Gasand hunted online in order to buy a refill. Now how sick is that. LoL

    I have unearthed an IKON glass chiller and would like to know if this is still available to purchase anywhere in Melbourne or in my Bayside area.
    Await your reply.
