Mine is more of a tall rectangle. It's a Coleman, but not sure what model. If you are looking for the best cooler out there for holding temps, most people will recommend one of the Coleman Extreme coolers. They come in a few different sizes.

when i do smaller beers in a 10 gallon round Igloo cooler I use a piece Styrofoam cut to size and just let it float on the water. I covered it with aluminum foil so as not to get any little pellets in the strike water. I just do this because there is so much head space doing smaller grain bills. Lose maybe 1 an hour at most

I was skeptical about the styrofoam floating in hot liquid, but aluminum foil wrapping sounds like it would be safe.
