Poor design choice
on March 23, 2015
Simply put: this mold is flimsy and not well-made. Some of the texture in the bottoms of a few different squares were basically non-existent, meaning, when the chocolate came out, you couldn't see that they had texture at all, while others did. This was prevalent on about 3 squares. But, more importantly, when working with chocolate, you typically have to overfill the squares and scrape the excess off to ensure uniformity in size and shape, and you typically want to scrape the excess back into your bowl of chocolate, meaning you have to pick the mold up. The problem is, when you pick it up, it basically bends in half because it's so thin. When it bends, half of it droops down, and your melted chocolate is going with it.
Another issue is the ridged edges. As mentioned before, you're typically going to be scraping chocolate off the top of the mold, even if you're trying to fill each square individually with a piping bag or something, because it's going to drip somewhere. The ridges on the sides ensure you can't scrape it all off, and that chocolate is going to get stuck on the side of the mold, and likely your hands. The edges need to be flat so all the melted chocolate leaves the mold. Poor design choice. It gets 2 stars because it did what it said it was going to do - it housed chocolate long enough for it to set up and come out in a cube shape. But that's about all I can say about it.
