How to Create The Perfect, Clear Ice Ball

Air bubbles and other impurities tend to come together as water freezes so when it finally does, you get ice that has a cloudy portion in it. Ice balls are no exception. Luckily for you, this article will walk you through the steps in making perfectly clear frozen orbs.

What you'll need:

1 Set of Silicone Ice Ball Molds

A Cooler Of Water

Length Of Wire

Step 1: Extend the length of wire over the cooler filled with water. Create a loop in the middle of the wire.

Step 2: Immerse the silicone Ice Ball Mold top-down into the water in the cooler. Ensure that the small hole is at the bottom. Fill the entire mold with water.

Step 3: Slowly lift the filled mold to the surface while making sure that the hole remains in the water, this way the water inside the mold does not go back down into the cooler.

Step 4: Nestle the filled mold on the wire loop, again making sure that the loop and the hole are immersed in the water.

Step 5: Put the cooler in the freezer to freeze. Placing the cooler in the warmest section of your freezer would be best as the slower the cooler freezes, the better the results.

Step 6: Allow the frozen ice mold to sit for a few minutes before releasing it from the mold.

If you want to make more sphere ice, simply make more wire loops. One thing you have to make sure of is that the hole at the top of the ice mold is completely immersed in water so the water inside does not flow back down. If this happens, you'll have yourself a nice round ball of nothing! You can also use a simple pot with handles where you can attach the wire if you don't have a cooler that can easily fit into your freezer.

Silicone Ice Ball Molds are best for making ice balls because they are easy to assemble, easy to unmold and are made of high quality, food grade silicone which is BPA free. They are also bigger in size at 2 ½ inches in diameter. The bigger diameter allows for a bigger surface area and makes the frozen balls melt slower than ice cubes or even smaller ice orbs would.

Top quality silicone Ice Ball Molds help you create stunning ice balls which keep your drinks cold for a longer time without getting watery.
