How to Cut Insulation For Shipping Perishables

I know you started with a box cutter.  We all did.  Now it's time to move on.

Maybe you're not ready to order a truckload of custom cut insulation.  That's fine, I'm right there with ya on some sizes.

Here's what I've learned at Paleo Treats:  Don't mess with box cutters, manual rotary sewing cutters, or even giant slicers.

Use the HRK-100, you can get 'em on Amazon for around $150. Yes, that's an affiliate link so if you buy one through it we'll get a little commission.


If you want general guidance on shipping perishables, check out the FedEx Perishable shipping guide (which I believe we're still featured in.)
