Best pop molds I've ever used!
on June 8, 2007
I've used several ice pop molds over the years, and up until now I thought Tupperware's pop molds were by far the best. These Tovolo molds lack the ability to replace either the cap or the handle (they are one molded piece) but the plastic used in the cap/handle and the mold is easily the best I've ever seen for pop molds. It's too early to predict how well these will actually hold up after dozens of freezings and thawings, but if the quality of materials is any indication, they should last a long, long time.
One month later:
While I still think these are overall the best pop molds I've ever used, I did discover one thing about them (the hard way, naturally): don't drop them on anything hard (i.e., a tile floor) after they've been in the freezer for a day or more. The yellow caps/lids tend to get brittle after freezing, and they will crack and/or break. The opaque molds don't appear to have this issue, although I don't plan to intentionally test their break-resistance threshold.
Five years later:
After several unsuccessful attempts to fix the cap/lid, I gave up, retired it and use the mold whenever I have a little extra liquid left and scoop it out with a spoon.
The molds are still in use and holding up quite nicely. They are still the best pop molds I have ever used.
