Arctic Chill Ice Ball Maker

The Arctic Chill Ice Ball Maker is one of those products you never think you need but you do! Once you own a set of these ice ball makers you will find that you use them over and over again. You can make plain ice balls with them or let your creativity fly.

I was asked to do a review by Rizzi at Arctic Chill on this really cool product. Since receiving it we have used it twice and my daughter used it once during their recent Halloween party. Since I do a lot of entertaining around the holidays, I know I will be getting a lot of use out of them when I whip up some of our favorite holiday punches and cocktails.

By making your own ice balls quickly & easily you can keep your cold beverages for hours! These spheres (balls) keep your drinks cold up to 10 times longer than traditional ice cubes. How cool is that? Super Cool! Plus...you will be saving money when you don't have to buy numerous bags of ice!

Product Features:

* 2.5 inch ice spheres keeps fine whiskey chilled and looks fab in cocktails!
* Quick release, non-stick silicone molds. Remove your ice spheres with ease!
* High quality BPA Free, FDA approved, nonporous silicone molds!
* Easy to clean just pop it in the dishwasher!
* Backed by a lifetime guarantee.

Recently my daughter hosted a Halloween party over at her home and she came over and borrowed the Arctic Chill Ice Ball Maker from me. They made their own ice balls and froze gummy worms and gummy spiders inside their spheres and then dropped the ice spheres into their punch bowl. She said everyone loved it (she forgot to take photos!).

Right after their party I had a few people over for cocktails and dinner and we made the ice spheres for our punch bowl. They are really easy to use and each silicone sphere comes in 2 pieces. You put the two halves together...fill them up with liquid (we used water) and place them into your freezer. Ours were frozen solid in less than 6 hours. When you are ready for them...take them out and separate the two halves with your fingers. It is really easy to do and it doesn't take any muscle at all. Pop out your ice balls and drop them into your favorite beverages. Super easy and they look super cute, much cuter than traditional ice cubes!

Like I said, once you have a set...you will find that you will use them over and over again. I consider them to be eco-friendly because I don't have to run out and buy bagged ice! Furthermore, you can use flavored beverages to make your ice spheres. When we host our Christmas Eve party we are going to pour punch in them and make punch flavored ice spheres and then toss them into our punch bowl. This will keep our punch from becoming watered down plus...it will keep it nice and cold!

Regarding clean-up...they are made out of silicone so I just rinsed them with a little soapy water and then clean water...towel dry and they are ready to go for the next time. You can purchase the iceball maker from Amazon.com.

I would make up a big batch of ice balls before having family over for Thanksgiving and Christmas, so folks could use them for their drinks. Although, I have a feeling the kids would get the biggest kick out of this. :) Thanks for the giveaway!
