Kuuk Silicone Large Ice Ball Maker Review

I love to add ice on my drinks, to make it ice cold, but I don't like my drinks getting watery. With the weather getting warmer here in SoCal already, my drinks get watery way quicker than before because the ice melts quicker. I'm already familiar with a silicone ice ball maker because I already have one at home but I'm glad to try the Kuuk Silicone Large Ice Ball because I love the idea of having more ice balls at home.

The Kuuk Silicone Large Ice Ball Maker arrived in a box. It came in a set of 2, cute, neon colored silicone molds which I think is nice. Here is a quick product description from the company:

Enhance your favourite spirits with this Kuuk ice balls twin pack. This value packed ice balls maker provides all the benefits of more expensive items, but in an affordable, reusable package. It's also easy to use, so you don't have to be a professional bar tender or whisky aficionado to enjoy cold, full bodied Scotch whisky every time.
Since I already am familiar with this type of ice ball mold, I was able to use it with no problems. There are no instructions though so for those using this type of ice ball mold the first time, it may be a puzzle. :)

So, for those who are curious on how to fill this up with water, here's how I did it.

First, I filled the bottom part (one without a hole) with tap water. If you want a crystal clear ice ball, you can use distilled water but since I only use this at home, tap water is fine but it'll produce a blurry ice ball.

Next, I covered it using the part with the hole to remove the excess water. After that, I place the silicone ice ball maker inside the freezer for a few hours.
Since I use tap water for my ice balls, the ice balls appear cloudy and blurry. Using distilled water will result in clear ice balls. :)
The ice balls are easy to pop out from the Kuuk Silicone Large Ice Ball Maker. It makes a solid, ice ball which is great to keep my drinks colder for a longer period of time without making it watery.
One of the things I noticed is that the water which pooled inside the ice ball maker stuck around the ice ball. It is easy to remove since it's just a thin film of ice so for me it's fine.

The Kuuk Silicone Large Ice Ball Maker is very easy to use and I love how I can have large ice balls at home. The large ice balls melts slower than regular ice cubes so they make my drink ice cold and not watery which is nice. They are also very pretty and my daughters love placing the ice balls on their juices because they think there's a snowball inside their drinks.

The Kuuk Silicone Large Ice Ball Maker is also very easy to clean and I can reuse it over and over again.
