Ice Mold Creates Perfect Spheres Of Ice

By Luke Anderson

How many times have you wanted a cold drink in the summer, only to have the ice cubes melt before you’re even halfway done? Unfortunately this waters down your beverage and you’re stuck either throwing it out or being stuck drinking something nasty. Apparently you can combat this by using spheres of ice. That’s great, but just how do you make ice spheres exactly?

Apparently it is a complicated process, one that is simplified by this Ice Mold. All you need to do is take an ice cube, set it in the metal press and wait for it to melt into a perfect ball. You can choose sizes of 55, 65, 70 and 80mm spheres, and get to work. You should be able to churn out 30 to 40 balls per hour, provided you already have some ice cubes made. Unfortunately there is no word on pricing or availability.

    How exactly does the shape of the ice prevent it from melting? I call BS.

    Because heat loss is roughly proportional to surface area, and for the same volume a spheres area is about 20% less than that of a cube, hence you might get 20% longer out of your ice cube. In practice its going to be more complicated and the difference is probably pretty slim, cool though.
