Fact-Checking the Clear Ice Balls Method

Recently I posted a method of making perfectly clear ice balls using an insulated mug, which was sent in from Alcademics readers. 

The physics of the thing made perfect sense but I hadn't actually tried it myself at the time. This post is just to say that I use this method now and make nice round ice. Lots and lots of it.


The ice in the picture above isn't cloudy; just some of it is frosty on the outside. 

I use this stainless steel tumbler a small ice ball mold that it sits in. Easy. 

An index of all the ice experiments on Alcademics is here.
