This mold is the epitomy of perfection, at a price and ease of use that is incomparable.
The only reason I am reviewing this is because I am SO pleased. I am back here ordering 2 more for myself + ordering 3 for gifts.
If you are considering buying this mold, just READ THE DIRECTIONS. So what if they are in Japanese, the pictures are totally instructive !

RUBY :: no, it isn't fiddly at all.
My method is to snap the molds shut and then fill from the top hole
RUBY :: Read the directions. Fill the ENTIRE bottom mold, then press the top mold
into the bottom mold, all the excess water is automatically removed. That's it !
Once they are frozen, run some water over the mold and you'll be able to crack the mold open.
RUBY :: Geez ! Take mold out of freezer, let it sit on the counter for 10-20 min.
They just fall out perfectly round.
If you don't allow for expansion, the ice balls will have a lot of cloudy cracks in them
RUBY :: The little hole on the top is there for precisley that purpose, as it freezes, excess water is pushed out into the top mold.
(I use filtered water, so I'm pretty sure these are pressure cracks caused by expansion).
RUBY :: If you want perfectly crystal clear balls, BOIL THE WATER for 10 minutes, let cool, then fill the entire bottom mold. Or use DISTILLED water.
You can make them up in advance and store the ice balls in your freezer for use later.
RUBY :: YESSIREEE ! There are 12 ice balls in a zip bag in my freezer.
There seem to be a lot of different designs ball shaped ice trays, I got this one because I could see how it was going to work (and did n't think the design was going to be problematic) and the reviews were good. Having used it, it works great! You just over fill the bottom tray, put on the top, and press the pieces together to squeeze out the excess water. There are holes in the top for this purpose and to allow a place to the water to expand while freezing.
My only criticism is the material. It is plastic, but seems kind of brittle - it does not appear to have the same combination of strength and flexibiltiy that normal plastic ice trays do. However, this should not be a problem. To prevent cracking, I am careful not to over-twist the tray to get this ice out, instead opting for running warm water to release them. I also think it is overpriced. Ten bucks for an ice tray? I chose to buy it anyway though, and I'm happy with the performance so far.
It does help to run some warm water on the outside of the tray to remove the cubes easier. The spheres look great and last so much longer than others. This tray only makes three, but we just transfer to a bag and remake so when we are using them, we have a bag of ice balls available.
A lot of fun to use for mixed drinks with friends. I don't see any downside with this product.

Awesome! Wish they made this with 10 slots instead of 3.....Published 7 days ago by Debbie Harrison
These are great and work GREAT too... They don't melt fast at all and work great in my Whisky glass...Im Happy.Published 13 months ago by Amazon Customer
Works pretty alright. The one I got was a little bent at the middle, so I would have to put something on top of the tray to have successful spherical balls.Published 17 months ago by ASponge
The results are usually pretty good, but you have to get the hang of using it. You'll get some perfect spheres and some defective ones. Read morePublished 17 months ago by BigRed
It makes the round ice just fine, but they temp to break in half if you drop them too hard into the glass.Published 19 months ago by CK
Its kind of tricky to get all the way round but none the less. Classy way to drink. Cheers my friends.Published on June 17, 2014 by Sambid Wasti
Good product, does an O.K. job of making sphereical ice balls - not perfect. Tricky at first but good to go after a few tries. Read morePublished on June 12, 2014 by spoonman007
I have other ice ball molds, but they are individual. I like that I can make more than one at once and un mold them all at once. the design makes it easy to fill.Published on June 2, 2014 by Kyle Kashiwabara
