Sphere ice has been around for a while, mainly in the world of whiskey aficionados, but just recently people have been singing the praises of this new approach to the ice for all kinds of drinks so it prompted me to try them for myself.
Sphere ice works on the logic that they have less surface area than regular cubed ice, meaning less watering down of your drinks and a slower melting time.
The Savvy Ice Silicone Sphere Ice Molds create 2-inch diameter ice molds and come in a set of 2 with 4 ice molds in each, making 8 spheres in total. The molds are made from BPA free silicone so they’re a gentle alternative to some of the other materials on the market, and the top and bottom snap together to create a leak-free environment.
- These ice molds actually do last longer than standard ice cubes! I found that I was finishing my drink well before the ice had melted, unlike regular ice.
- My drink remained virtually free from water due to the time it took these spheres to melt. Normally I find that the melting ice ruins the flavor of most drinks, so was pleasantly surprised to find these kept it cool but undiluted.
- The Savvy Ice Silicone Sphere Ice molds can be placed in any type of drink imaginable. They look infinitely better than standard ice and add a touch of class and style to your drink. They were a great conversation starter too!
- You can also fill the trays with things like lemon, lime, strawberries, mint or anything else and let the flavors seep through as the ice melts.
Sphere ice molds are definitely going to stick around in my household, and the Savvy Ice molds are a great quality product. Once I’d gotten the hang of it, the trays were easy to fill and freeze, and thanks to the silicone they just popped out without any hassle. I’ve had so many compliments on these ice spheres when I’ve used them for entertaining. They just look better than regular ice which can sometimes appear cheap and will water down quickly.
I’m not a whiskey drinker and so the ice molds didn’t appeal to me at first, but after realizing how many different uses they have I was sold. The Savvy Ice Sphere Ice Molds are excellent value for money and a truly innovative product!
