Glacio Ice Sphere Makers Product Description

Whether you’re freezing ice balls individually or in a bunch, this four-piece set from Glacio can be of great assistance. In the mold, two sections of silicone snap together with a groove along the edges, so that water is sealed when it is frozen, creating a smooth-sided ice ball measuring 2.5 inches in diameter. they can be slow to fill and should be accustomed to to filling to the right level (not to mention that water expands when cold), the Glacio have minimal parts and are easy to use. To create spheres that are perfectly round, follow these tips: As the molds do not have a flat surface or a base, they need to be positioned firmly against a wall in your freezer to stay upright as the ice is formed. You can also buy two of them at a time.

  • Large Square Ice Cubes - With our jumbo square ice cube mold, you can create six giant cubes that measure just under two As more than just a novelty, big ice melts/dilutes at a slower rate, which makes them a great complement to whiskies such as Old Fashioned, Scotch, Bourbon, and blended.
  • Molds For Large Ice Spheres - Our silicone sphere freezer molds produce two large ice spheres. The size of a 5 inch ball of ice. The slow melting/dilution of huge blocks of ice is more than a novelty. Pour them over craft cocktails, cold brew coffee, popsicles, infused mint for Mojitos, or homemade frozen lemonade to cool them down.
  • We have flexible silicone ice cube trays that are non-stick and simple to use, unlike stiff plastic ice cube trays. It is easy to twist or push these ice molds from the bottom so you can remove ice cubes without sticking.
  • Silicone Food Grade - glacio's food grade silicone ice trays are safe for freezing liquids like fruit juice, soup, and even baby food without causing any harm. The plates are easy to clean off quickly, and you can put them in the dishwasher.
  • With our money-back guarantee, we're so confident you'll think we have the best silicone ice molds available on the market that we make every order with a full refund. We have ice mold combo sets that will make your drink cool for longer!

Questions & Answers

In this case, we put together the balls completely, and then fill up the balls with water until just the top of the hole in the top of the ball is covered. Prior to use, we washed the molds very well.

Selected User Reviews For Glacio Ice Sphere Makers

Up until the third batch, everything was great (3/5)

When everything went smoothly, I used up the sphere mold and the cube mold, and put them in the fridge yesterday when it arrived. After a while, my jug was empty, and the ice inside had melted and decomposed. My reaction was to go to the kitchen, take out the molds, and release the ice easily without any hassle. I returned to my room with a refilled jug filled with ice. In the evening, I restocked again, everything was fine. However, after running out of ice today, I went and got more ice, no problemo, however, before I could put them in the freezer, they started leaking profusely. Although the cubical molds work just fine, they do take up a lot of room. It will be easier to buy the batch styled sphere molds next time rather than the two individual ones that came with.

The design and features of both cubic and spherical ice molds are thoughtful (5/5)

Comparing this device with other manufacturers, it offers the following two benefits cubed silicone tray is fitted with a lid, which will drastically reduce odor absorption and ice sublimation during storage in a freezer after use. However, I generally recommend that big ice cubes be used in a steady manner ( It's so hard to choose between so many cocktail options. 1) The silicone sphere molds are incredibly flexible, allowing the sphere to be retrieved without the need to run warm water over the mold to release the ice. I think this is much better than other manufacturers who use a more rigid plastic base container that you can't bend enough to pop out the ice without it being warmed up. When filling the sphere molds, water does not leak out of the seam, even though they are two halves of a hemispherical object, so at least initially, this demonstrates perfect material engineering. Water expands a bit as it freezes and expands, so if you fill these to slightly less than completely filled, then you won't get any ice expression outside the mold when it freezes. Due to the fact that the product is silicone, it will eventually absorb "freezer burn" or "old ice" odors unless very lightly scrubbed. In contrast, the price point of this material isn't so expensive that it makes sense to replace it every few years. All in all, this is a well-written review A product set that has been designed for ease of use and delivers great.

I am not off to a good start (2/5)

Apparently I was expecting instructions to be included upon arrival with these ice molds, specific for the sphere molds, but that was not the case. What is the benefit of advising customers of the size of the ice cube each mold will produce? What does it mean to put the appropriate amount of water How many ounces are you talking about? Is there any way a person has any idea how much water / fluid to add to a solid colored mold that you can't even see through and are not even able to see into through the tiny opening used to fill it up? To make 2 spheres, fill the sphere mold approximately 80% of the way. The size of a 5 pound piece of ice. Is that it? In the sphere mold, there is no indication of how many ounces of fluid it holds, or more importantly, how many ounces you need to add to finish the ice sphere as advertised. Just "fill it about 80%", and experiment until you get the right sphere. This is not what I paid for to spend time trying to figure out how to get the most out of a product that should have come with instructions. Moreover, the cube tray mold (which, by the way, is the main reason I purchased this brand, because the lid was included with it), as well as the spheres are coated with some kind of greasy film. On Amazon, I found other silicone molds that provided instructions, and I read to soak them in vinegar water if they had greasy film, then using Dawn, I would rinse extremely well, then let air out for a few hours (such as using As a result, I did this, but it still leaves a small impression on me. I almost feel like I'm rinsing these molds in the sink with rainx, which makes the water bead up and roll off the windshield during a heavy downpour, as this is exactly what happens as I'm rinsing them. As a final note, I am confused as to why there are so many reviews on this product with no product questions (prior to mine), as you see with several other brands and sellers (some that have only a few hundred reviews and others with several thousand).

This is awful (1/5)

It was not possible to unmold the mold. Every single time. It was great to be able to use these several times during the holidays, a virtual cocktail event and a time to sit by the pool with a special bottle of whiskey. It was exciting to see how excited my daughter was as she loves making pretend drinks and couldn't wait to see what the shapes were like. However, I was unable to get the ice cubes out after several attempts. The same thing happened over and over. I was not sure how I would make the sphere, but I managed. In contrast, the square shaped mold was impossibly difficult to use when entertaining friends and family As a result, I had to use regular ice cubes during our online virtual event to accommodate our guests. Despite its soft texture, the silicone does nothing to help it While entertaining and serving, the hot water needed to be used to melt the ice very quickly by melting nearly 1/4 of it, as that took so long. As a result, it would have been better if the cube mold was hard plastic so I was able to twist it and force The plastic smell was also horrible, but I assume it will go away over time. Thank goodness I was able to return them! The problem could have been with what I do, as we have made ice thousands of times and never encountered this issue before.

The trays they come in smell bad and ruin the ice (1/5)

It's hard to get rid of this plastic mold's smell, no matter how many times you wash it! The foul smell of the plastic, which is retained in the cube, marries beautifully with a cocktail that could have been perfect. Glacio has been contacted and I hope he gets back to me with an explanation, solution, or replacement. They don't seem to have much customer support on.
