Beware the square. Cheer the sphere.
The sphere is the perfect shape for the ice in your drink. Compared to ice cubes, an ice sphere (ice ball), subjects 24% less surface area to the drink. This means less drink dilution for the same amount of chill power. Meltdown Is The Perfect Solution to Dilution Pollution.
Meltdown is the ultimate ice ball press.
99.8% Solid Copper Construction
TrickleDown™ Cascade Grooves
CatchAll™ Base captures meltwater for easy disposal
HoverCover™ Pinless Design for smooth operation
Comes with three silicone cups
How Meltdown works
Meltdown works best when it is at room temperature or warmer. If making multiple ice balls, either let Meltdown warm up between each pressing or run it under warm water until it is no longer cold.
Pinless design makes for flawless, long-lasting performance
First, in many cases, you’ll get some “chattering” as the top of the press descends. This is because the ice does not melt uniformly, and if the pins are not perfectly aligned, especially over time, the top of the press catches on the pins. Second, If you ever drop your ice ball press, these pins are likely to get bent or be damaged as they are the weak point of the design.
Meltdown features a pinless design in which the cover rides in grooves built into the Meltdown base. This design is far easier to align and is not prone to chattering or accidental damage.
A cold, hard surprise made right before your eyes
The runoff water is captured in Meltdown’s CatchAll Base from which you can pour it away before making another ice ball. Because copper holds the cold, you may want to either let Meltdown warm some on its own or run it under warm water prior to making additional ice balls. Of course, you can pre-make and freeze ice balls, too.
