Perfect for cocktails!
One of my biggest gripes when making a good cocktail is that the ice is never big enough. If you have a lot of ice, it tends to melt and dissipate faster. So...I really wanted some large ice cubes! These trays are awesome. The silicon lets you easily get the ice cubes out once frozen, and the cubes are BIG and an excellent size.
My negroni was delicious - and it didn't taste watered down! Pouring it over a big block of ice got the drink cold, and then it stayed cold--without getting diluted--as I drank it.
Recommended, 100%. Great ice trays!!
The square mold is great. Sphere one is OK.
I enjoy a good drink on the rocks. The problem normal ice is that it has a smaller surface area and melts quicker. Using these ice cubes, your drinks stay colder longer, and they do not get watered down as quickly. While I really like the square blocks of ice, I don't really care for the sphere shaped mold. I've found it rather hard to use. I'll probably just toss that one in the trash. The square one on the other hand is great!
Great product! Totally worth the price
Great product! Totally worth the price! It is a very sturdy quality. The trays are made of 100% silicone so you just need to push it from the bottom and the ice comes off so easily. Even though it is made of silicone, when you fill up the trays with water, they do not bend unlike other soft plastic trays. The ice lasts longer than the ice from usual ice trays as they are of a pretty decent size.
One of the trays comes in a round shape so you can get fancy balls of ice, which you can even make popsicle treats if you stick a stick through the holes which are already there.
