Silicone Ice Ball Tray Maker By i2 Gear Review
I received the Silicone Ice Ball Mold Maker by i2 Gear to try and I couldn't wait to try making ice balls in it.
The i2 Gear's Silicone Ice Ball Mold Maker is made of BPA free silicone. It came in a white box and has a black color. There is a blue mold available too.
The tray can make 4 ice balls at a time.
-Place the mold in sink and fill mold with distilled water to the top rim. Tap water will work but could bubble and create a cloudy ice ball.
-Press down on the top mold and release any excess water between the top and bottom molds.
-Place mold on a flat surface in the freezer.
-Once frozen, remove the top mold and place on the counter upside down.
-Flip the bottom mold over the top mold and separate the edges until the ice releases into the top mold slots. Note: The mold should separate from the ice very easily.
The ice balls melted slower and lasted longer than the regular ice cubes we use. It didn't make our drinks watery and yet it kept it icy cold. I like how these ice balls also fit my daughters' cups because they can use it too.
This is a nice ice ball maker and I like how it doesn't take up much space in our freezer. I can make batches of ice balls and just put them in a separate tray so that I can have a "stock" of ice balls in the freezer.
The silicone ice ball maker is durable because I've made ice balls using this a dozen of times already and it still looks like it's new.
