Chilly balls! Those of us who like balls in their drinks rather than regular old cubes rejoice! The Tovolo Spherical Ice Molds are here to save the day!
At first glance, these things seem utterly superfluous, simply making ice round rather than the standard cubes, which admittedly is pretty cool on its own, but this does actually serve a very important purpose. The round shape of the sphere actually causes the cube to melt far more than its cubical brothers due to its higher volume, but smaller surface area compared. What this means is that your balls will melt slowly, reducing the dilution of the drink that it is in.
Basically all this is a way of saying that your last sip of a drink with balls in it will taste much the same on as the first sip. The only way it could possible get any better is if you use Stainless Steel Whiskey Stones.
The mold does look a little cumbersome at first, but it will easily fit in any freezer. All you need for perfect balls is simply to fill it, seal it up and freeze. It comes with 2 molds, so you can make two balls at the same time because as we all know, two balls are always better than one.
