The horizontal partitions may be there to separate the zones (between partitions) into different cooling levels. Frozen food on bottom, meats and other perishables next, and so on, the warmest zone on top. This is a common way for some portable refers to separate cooling zones. The partitions will also help keep the food lower down cooler with less energy. I used this trick in Florida with a regular ice chest and was able to keep foods for up to a week before I needed new ice. This was good during the hurricanes.
There are two types of fools...
One says this is old, and therefore good..
The other says this is new, and therefore better...
