My husband and I are big fans of ice balls. They just look so much more classy than regular, boring ice cubes.
The only problem with ice ball makers is that you need numerous devices if you want to entertain a decent number of people. That way, you can have a fair amount of ice balls on hand when the party starts. The ice balls that this device makes are big enough and it makes four at a time. The device is made well enough that ice balls come out relatively
smooth. There are a few ticks and obviously lines in the middle, but they are not too noticeable. They are especially not noticeable if you put mint leaves or orange rinds in the ice balls. Trust me on that one.
Or if you plan on dropping the ice balls in glasses of whiskey or in glasses of freshly-made cocktails.
The four coasters that accompany the ice ball maker are wonderful. We are not coaster people, however. But if we were, these are some coasters that we would use regularly. I mean, as far as I go, they are easy to clean. As far as my husband goes, they are certainly manly enough. The only way to get manlier is to have them made out of wood or bone.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
