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 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.
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!
