How to Use Your Ice Ball Molds – INSTRUCTIONS (please read) and FAQs
Before using your new tray, be sure to wash to wash thoroughly with soap and water
Fill the bottom tray nearly full of water (leave about 1 cm unfilled)
Then set the bottom tray on an even surface in your sink and press the lid tray down into the bottom tray until it is sealed (Note: The excess water will escape through the 4 vent holes at the top of each ball)
When full, gently press down on the top of each mold to force out enough water to give a slight air gap at the top of each ball for expansion – This step is important so your ice balls will form properly without cracking – Need to leave room for expansion
Do not worry about excess water in tray.Let it freeze with the mold
Lay flat in freezer for 5+ hours
After freezing please follow these steps:
Before removing mold lid, break all ice around balls using a twisting motion…with lid still on
If you do not, there will be Saturn-like rings around each ball
You do not have to be gentle with the silicone, it will not break
After using this step to break ice, remove top lid and release ice spheres from bottom tray
Note: There may be a lot of broken ice, but the balls should be fine
Ice balls are now ready for removal! Use ice balls you need and store the rest in a plastic zip bag in your freezer
FAQ:How to get clear ice?there are some steps you can take to make your ice less hazy.
1. Use distilled/filtered water, rather than tap water.
2. Try boiling the water first, then letting it cool down.Some of the haziness often seen in the ice ball comes from microscopic bubbles trapped in the water.Boiling can help cause those microscopic bubbles to dissipate resulting in clearer ice once frozen.
