Round ice cubes
I want them. Round ice cubes, that is. Maybe I'll splurge on this expensive and complicated Japanese contraption that melts cubes into spheres.
To quote the Japenese Trend Shop,
"Spheres of ice are preferred because the smaller surface area means the ice melts slower, keeping drinks cold without becoming too diluted. Simply heat briefly in hot water, place good-quality ice in the mold, put on the top, and it works on it’s own!
Of course, this is the Mini Version, but you can fill a glass with a single ball or creative shape using the other available molds, ranging up to 80mm!
The Ice Ball Molds can be used to create 30-40 ice balls an hour!"
