I love, love, love, love these giant ice cube molds from Home-Complete. My sweetie really likes ice, and he mentioned that he wanted larger ice cubes. I know he was referring to getting a few trays with deeper spaces, but I took it a bit further by purchasing this set of silicone molds that produces a total of sixteen 2-inch ice cubes. The cubes look impressively huge. In a 16-ounce glass, you can manage to fit three, but the third one makes it difficult to pour liquid. And, they last a really long time. The ice cubes are so large and frosty that they create a slightly slushy coating out of whatever drink hits it.
Each mold has a space for 8 ice cubes, which holds approximately 3 ounces of water. The flexibility of the silicone allows you to manipulate the material so that you can easily coax the cubes out. Not only do the ice cubes keep your drink cold for a really long time, but they just look fun – a real conversation piece when entertaining friends, if you ask me.
The giant ice cube molds are also FDA-approved, BPA free, and can be cleaned in a dishwasher.
Another bonus with the molds is that they are made from a safe food-grade material, so if you ever need a large shape for baking desserts or even making chocolates, you can use these molds. I’ve read that some people use them to freeze soup, ice coffee, and smoothie ingredients.
The one thing I should point out, that didn’t bother me (but maybe others might not care for) is the large Home-Compete brand name printed on the outside of the ice molds. I can see this as a visual distraction for some people, but not for me.
All in all, I am very pleased with this versatile purchase!
