Chill your drinks without watering them down. Clever ice mold combines art and science to make a creative, ultra slow-melting ice ball. Easy-to-use mold and innovative cap effectively shapes your ice into large spheres. Simply fill with water and freeze for beautifully formed ice orbs. Durable silicone and plastic construction won’t leak or tip in the freezer and stacks neatly to conserve space.
Great, innovative product. Prefer these to whisky stones for presentation and performace. Boil your water and allow it to come to room temperature before filling your molds to eliminate the air bubbles that would otherwise cloud the resulting spheres. And best not to use these in taller glasses if you're insistent on getting the last drop out of the glass, or you could wind up with the sphere rolling toward your teeth! Overall, these is a lot of fun, an inexpensive splurge, and a really fantastic gift
I bought these for my boyfriend to use while drinking scotch & although he hasn't used them for this purpose, we've definitely used them for our mixed drinks.. We both love them so far! The molds are easy to use & don't take that long to freeze. The ice doesn't melt very fast so they're not watering down your drink... plus they're fun to look at
I bought 4 for my husband for Christmas. While on a trip San Francisco a couple years ago, we ordered a cocktail. Our glass had a Sphere Of Ice. We were amazed how slow it melts We loved them, so this year I was looking to find something special. Looking through a Sur La Table, and found these Spere Ice Molds. I ordered and after Christmas we filled the mols with water and put in freezer. We loved the results and use them daily. I Only ordered 4, but truly could order many more. It does not have to for cocktails. My grandchildren laugh when I have a Sphere with their soda. Enjoy
Bought these for my husband. They are not something people necessarily think that they need, but definitely appreciate if they have - thus making them a great gift/stocking stuffer! They don't take up too much space in the freezer. They are fun to use and guests love them. They melt slowly so they keep the integrity of your drink/cocktail/scotch/whiskey longer! What's not to love about that
These ice cube molds are great for ice, but even better if you fill them with juice and fruit. I filled one with orange juice, blueberries, and raspberries - it was a great way to keep a pitcher of orange juice cold without watering it down. The ice cubes melt a little faster than I expected, which is why I didn't give this item 5 stars.
I had to bring a gift to a holiday gift exchange and thought this was a perfect gift and was within the gift budget. The receiving participant LOVED them. I went a got one for myself. I am a whiskey drinker and these are perfect but they are also a lot of fun to put in your everyday drinks!
These ice molds are so great for any type of drink. They're easy to fill and it's easy to get the ice out of the mold, unlike some other molds that are similar. Adults love them, and kids especially think they're fun. They really work well for drinks that you don't want to get watered down, which is practically everything. I've given these to so many people as gifts, and they're always a big hit.
It is so easy, my grandchildren can open.The Sphere has 2 sides, that come apart.Then, you just pop them out from one of the sides, which has I tiny hold to put your finger on to assist in releasing the ice
Best Answer:I've had the same problem. The only thing I've found that helps is to loosen the sphere from the mold with pretty hot water. This seems to make a clear, nicer looking exterior. I only fill my sphere's with Reverse Osmosis water from my water softening system. I also try to wash my spheres between each use to remove any possible residue buildup but I don't know if it helps. I still get some cracks in my spheres but not usually so bad that it breaks them apart.
Start with distilled water. Then boil it. Let it sit until lukewarm and then boil again. The second boiling is VERY important for clear ice. Let the water sit until room temperature and then fill the ice sphere molds. Freeze, and you will have clear ice. Do not put hot water into the freezer or you will have cracks in your ice.
We have the same situation. I think that if the beverage being used is cooled when being poured over the ice ball, then the problem would be decreased. We don't do that and accept the ice ball the way it is. We have not had clear ice balls but more like the picture shows.
