Also as the ice expands, the mold begins to separate on its own. Good thing that it is iced up before that time, so it doesn't spill out.
The mold is kind of hard to open. I had to let it sit for a minute or so before praying it open to get the ice mold out. It takes some work to get it out of the mold even after letting it sit on the counter at room temp for a few min.
No instructions came with the mold. If someone knows a way how to make the ice mold better, let me know. I'm happy to change my review if I'm somehow doing this wrong. Should I avoid filling to the top since ice expands as it freezes or do other modifications?
-don't fill the molds all the way, 80-90% works well and gives the ice/water room to expand
-it's better to under fill than over fill. the mold has the death star upside down, so if you underfill and end up w/ a flat spot on your sphere, it will be on the bottom of your glass when you pop it out
-distilled water can give you slightly clearer ice (or cooled down boiled water)
You can also put some more effort in and get perfectly clear death stars with no cracks. To do this, you need to freeze the ice directionally and more slowly. You can find videos on youtube on how to make clear ice, and there's even one guy who shows you how to do it w/ these same Death Star molds. I use a tall cylindrical cooler filled with water, fill up my sphere all the way, submerge the whole mold under water and then flip it upside down so the filler hole is on the bottom. I then rest the mold on a pedestal (that I've already placed in the center of the cooler), and then I use a straw to extract enough water in the cooler so only about 3/4 inch of the mold is still in the water. Then I throw the whole contraption in the freezer. This suspends the mold partially submerged in a deep water bath that's insulated, so it hopefully freezes slowly from the top of the cooler first. It takes about 20 hours for the ice to freeze using this method (compared to 6 hours using the conventional method), so it's a lot more work, but the results speak for themselves.
-keep frozen death stars in the mold for storage. Even if you pull them out and seal them in a ziploc bag in the freezer, they'll lose surface detail. If you need more ready Death Stars on reserve, buy more molds and make them ahead of time.
-these spheres look best when they're not served with a lot of liquid. I like to have them 3/4 covered. Seems like 2-3oz of booze in a rocks glass is about right.
-to preserve surface detail, pour your drink first and then place the sphere into the glass carefully using a spoon
-alcohol melts the ice quickly, so if you want a cold cocktail, stir with regular ice in a mixing glass first, then strain into the final glass and place the death star in the glass last
I've only made ice with it several times, so I can't say how long they will last before they stretch or rip, but they seem very sturdy and mine hold water just great.
Try distilled water to make ice clearer ice
USE YOUR BRAIN PEOPLE! Google how much water expands in volume when it freezes. Google told me approximately 10%. Measure the water that fits in the ball and divide it by 1 and 10%. I measured that 110 mL of water fits into the ball. So.... 110 divided by 1.10 = 100 mL. Measure 100 mL of water and fill the ball with it.
On the Death Star part, yes, its not a perfect Death Star, it is Ice after all, its not clear like glass. So, there is small imperfections, and once you pour you drink over the death star, it loses its intended detail within 2 minutes. I think you could counter this by making the outline groves a bit deeper, so it should last longer.
And takes 6-8hrs for the sphere to be frozen and rdy for use. So I just keep making new ones and putting them in a freezer bag.
And yes I tried to boil water as someone else suggested to make it clearer, not much better.
All in all, Glad I got them.
This is a must have for any geek!
