I'm not sure if our family is weird but we can't drink soda without ice. Even if the can or bottle was refrigerated already, we can't drink it straight up without ice. So when StyloPhora sent me a pack of their Ice Ball Mold, I was excited to try it.
Like all things new, I washed it first prior to using it. I closed the Stylophora Ice ball mold by putting together the 2-halves and making sure that they fit right.
Next, I un-popped the blue silicone funnel and filled up the Stylophora Ice Ball Mold. Just a little experiment, I tried to fill up one Stylophora Ice Ball Mode without using the funnel and it works but most of the water spills on the side of the hole, unless I open the faucet just a little then it's fine.
The water should only go up to the black line.
I set it inside the freezer and waited for about 4 hours for the ice to freeze. My daughters couldn't wait for the ice balls to freeze.
Fast forward 4 hours, here are the ice balls! :)
I couldn't wait to pop it out.. :)
It was very easy to pop the ice out and I didn't have to apply too much pressure on the ice mold to pop it out. I was a bit disappointed though because the ice ball has some cracks on it. It didn't fall apart but there were cracks inside it. Maybe it's from my handling but the next set of ice balls I made were more perfect than this. :)
I love how easy it is to use the Stylophora Ice Ball Mold. It takes longer for the ice balls to freeze than with our regular sized ice cube trays but it takes longer for these to melt. I also love how cool the ice balls look on our drinks. My daughters love it and I love it as well. :)
