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.
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.
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.
1. I didn't notice much difference between hot and cold (filtered) water for making them clearer.
2. The hinged bit feels like it might break; in general, the construction is a little flimsy when weighed against the (hefty) price.
3. I had better results filling them and then putting them on a plate to freeze.
4. Filling partially, putting fruit/decoration in, and filling further is a pain and is further obscured by the fact my water doesn't freeze particularly clear.
These are cool looking and I tend to make a bunch starting about a week before having people over. For day-to-day they're a little bit of a pain, and to be honest their size and shape dictate that it's a LOT of ice compared to the cooling power (since they're so thick compared to surface area). If you want ice balls, these are cool little molds. If you're looking for molds but don't care that they're spheres, you can probably find other shapes that will be easier to deal with... plus, I'm going to cringe when the hinges start to give.
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...
