Arctic Chill Ice Balls

Happy Monday everyone!  I was contacted again by Arctic Chill to review another one of their items.  Back in November I reviewed their Stainless Steel Muddler which I used to make my very first Mojito.

In the mail I received a free box of 4 BPA free Silicone Ice Ball Makers.  They sent me this for free so that I would give an honest review on this item.  All views are my own.  I was not compensated for them in any way.   They all looked like this one:


I filled them all up with water and found out that you are not supposed to fill them up completely to the top.  Once filled completely, I poured out a little bit of water so that during the freezing process the water wouldn't come out of the hole on the top and spill onto the drawer they were sitting on.  I still haven't perfected that yet, but either way it's not a big deal if they do spill out.  Ice is easy to pick up and toss into the sink.

Here is what one of my ice balls looked like:



Some of them had cracks in them, some did not.  The ones that did have cracks were absolutely fine to use.  The cracks did not go all the way through the ice balls so they did not crumble when I removed them from their mold.  The ice balls are pretty easy to remove from their molds.  You can basically peel back the sides a little and the ice ball will come out.  Only 1 time out of 8 did I need to run warm water over the outside of the mold for 2 seconds to release the ice ball.  

Here is a photo of the mold after I removed one of the ice balls from it:


All in all, I think these molds are great.  Last weekend I hosted a small brunch and made a punch in a punch bowl.  I used 4 of these ice balls to chill my punch and they worked perfect.   They took their time melting which was nice because I didn't want my punch watered down.  These Arctic Chill Ice Ball Makers ** would make a great gift ** for that person who has everything, or even for that person who doesn't.


Thank you again Rizzi for sending me another great product!

Cheers!
