Some tips if you are going to buy this:
1) don't try any pry the ice out, you will destroy the product. Don't even try to open the ball once the water has frozen. Again, you will destroy the product. Instead run some water over it and try to slowly open it. You shouldn't need much force once a layer of water is between the ice and plastic
2) Don't expect perfectly round ice. Usually the ice pushes the mold open a little and looks a little morphed.
3) This is personal preference but I like clear ice. Boil distilled water wait for it to cool and use that in your mold. Before you boil the water though, rinse out the pot you are going to boil water in with the distilled water so there aren't any minerals left in the pot. Distilled water is only $1/gallon and sold at most grocery stores. Your ice still wont be completely clear but trust me, it will look a lot better. ENJOY

These four individual ice molds make the best large ice balls for serious bourbon or single malt scotch drinkers. For making a globe or ice ball, fill the plastic globes with water, clip the lid shut, freeze for 6 hours and VOILA, the perfect size for a single "rocks" glass with minimal "melt." They are easy to fill and even easier to remove after they are frozen - ice ball pops right out! Product says it can also be used for other liquids. Make several and keep them frozen in a plastic bag in the freezer!

I use these for my cocktails, and whilst I'm sure there is some benefit to the shape in terms of not all melting at once, I just really like the shape.
It does take a little practice to get the fill level correct so the container doesn't pop open as it freezes (no spilling if it does open up as the edges have already frozen). Not a big deal, but if you overfill you won't get very round ice balls (they'll have a tire in the middle!).
Handy hint: If you fill them and let the water settle for a little while, the balls will come out less cloudy. I've heard boiling the water beforehand and letting cool will produce less cloudy ice too.

The good part is they work fine and don't leak, and are easy to use. They make nice round ice "cubes", which are cool. If it came with instructions I admit I didn't read them - at first I must have overfilled them because they expanded too much and the halves were split open once frozen. Then I must have underfilled them because it wasn't a full sphere. Then I couldn't get the ice out so I accidentally broke the hinge between the top and bottom halves.

But the good news is they still work fine, and don't leak, even with a broken hinge. Next time i'll try to get the ice out by running warm water over it or something - I'm sure I'm making it worse than it should be. Probably the best choice for round ice, but I'm only going to use the Tovolo large 2" cubes in the silicone tray in the future, which is a lot easier to get the water into, and the ice out of...

Having first owned the "Fusionbrands Silicone Ice Orb Vertical Ice Cube Tray" and then trying out "Whiskey Stones"--all for whiskey mind you--I finally moved on to the Prepara Ice Balls. I'm liking them.

And if you don't want to spend hundreds (thousands now) on that nifty copper ice ball maker you can find at the Japan Trend Shop, then this is perfect.

The ice balls don't come out perfect, but they get the job done. They cool drinks and last longer than our standard ice cubes--plus they look awesome.

Easy steps:
1.)fill up the balls, not too full as the water will expand when turning to ice.
2.)after frozen pop the tab up top and run cool water over it--this aids in loosing the ball.
3.)pry open the plastic and take the ice ball out (sometimes easier than other times).

I love em.

Reading other reviews truly helped me know what to expect, and I got exactly that.

* These are a little fragile and should have cold water
run over them before/during opening to keep from breaking
the hinges. I did break one set of hinges by trying to
open without the water, but it hasn't affected performance
since in the least.

* Great advice about not filling all the way. I fill them
all the way up, then shake out some room at the top, and
even with the expansion, I get a nice spherical ice ball
every time.

* Yes, there is a bit of a ridge or just a bump where the
two sides meet, but c'mon--these things cost less than
five bucks! You want perfect, you gotta PAY for perfect.

* What they say about the ice lasting longer is 100% true!
I can have a nice bourbon and enjoy it slowly and there
is still ice left. The melt is slow enough it doesn't
over-dilute the bourbony goodness. :7)

The *value* is there: Great, GREAT deal for the money!

I have the Tovolo 80-5521 King Cube Jumbo-Size Silicone Ice-Cube Tray, Blue which I LOVE. Great size cubes that last forever. Since I bought that tray i've stopped using regular sized ice cubes. But I live in a shared flat with a small freezer and my 2 flatmates love to cook as much as I do, making freezer space very precious. So when I saw these individual ice makers, I thought this would be the perfect solution to having large ice cubes, but the ability to save space - especially if I'm only making ice for myself.

Well, in terms of space saving it's worked a treat. These little pods can squeeze in anywhere. And I normally only have 2 in the freezer to ensure there's always 1 solid ice ball in rotation. Also with a more traditional ice tray, it's awkward to get out ice unless you always wait until the tray is empty before refilling it. And then you have to wait at a couple of hours until all the cubes set, which is a pain when you're trying to keep guests' drinks cold. With the ice ball pods that's no longer a concern, given they're individually wrapped, allowing for more staggered ice making which is really handy! Also, aesthetically, the round balls look better in whiskey and short cocktails than cubes.

The thing that isn't so handy, as others have mentioned and why it gets 4stars, is opening the pod to get ice out. I've never been able to do it without running it under the tap to 'loosen' it up first. This bit of faff may seem minor, but as often as I use ice, it does actual irk me. Despite this, I'm very happy with my purchase, but I still prefer to use my king cube tray if I know I've got company over. Easier to pop out cubes and I feels like the ice cubes last a bit longer than the balls.
