$6.99 shipped but I will admit my ice spheres are full of commoner bubbles and you have to caress the balls for a second to remove the line.

u/robynflower · 74 pointsr/todayilearned

To note this isn't the standard whipped cream cans people buy in the supermarket, but instead a high end make your own whipped cream style of dispenser which uses a replaceable gas canister to create the whip effect. Like these type of things -

u/RockItGuyDC · 47 pointsr/funny

Tongs and a splatter screen would fix that issue.

But, no pain no gain, I guess.

u/C0RNL0RD · 34 pointsr/gif

Or you could just go buy a set of two molds for $10.

Thank me later. The content of this message will solve all of your Christmas gift woes.

The 3 gifts you will get will be found at the following links:
(All items gluten free, total price less than $50.)

The key, however, will be the PRESENTATION!
You will engrave the chopsticks with a clever message, preferably referring to the titanic in some way. You will the impale the giant gummy bear with the chopstick and - voila! - you have a MURDER MYSTERY.

If you make your engraving cryptic enough, with the perfect timing, the cubes can come in to play. Right as she unwraps the gift, serve up some lovely Gin and Titonics to everyone in attendance. One of the delicious beverages should hold a NUN-CHUCK, REVEALING THE NINJA LIVING AMONGST YOU AT YOUR CHRISTMAS GATHERING! HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT, THE ANSWER WILL THEN BE!!!!

Tl;dr - two birds with one stone; great gift, purge ninja.

Ice is not pressed hard, but melted. Aluminium has a high thermal conductivity, meaning it can transfer heat very quickly.

Here is similar video with explanation -

Where you can buy this machine?

Here at $6.99 -

u/afreeorange · 26 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Noted. But they do say

>But if we pick junk, and you return it, we make nothing. We think that’s a fair system.

I concur. Although if you really didn't want them to get any kickback, just remove the referral ID


Although that's just being mean (or spiteful?)

I liked the site for the long articles describing their research and alternatives (as opposed to just propping up a recommendation). So even if I didn't purchase anything, I'd still walk away with a better survey of products, features, and prices than before.

u/Mallingong · 24 pointsr/shutupandtakemymoney

Better than that, is these. I'm currently using the second one every day, and the silicone lid is a miracle for trays that makes the long slim "ice cubes" for water bottle usage. Normally you have to be incredibly careful with those trays because the long slender slots slosh water everywhere, but the sealing lid works so well.

u/[deleted] · 23 pointsr/shutupandtakemymoney

I recommend these giant ice cube trays instead.

I usually keep one of these filled with good water for serving whisk(e)ys on the rocks.

u/congha · 18 pointsr/shutupandtakemymoney

First google result i got for ice sphere -

~$10 for 2 without a death star (if that isnt your thing).

u/toastyoats · 16 pointsr/cocktails

I'll just go ahead and list a few of the things I use on a regular basis.

Koriko shakers are awesome. They look cool and function amazingly. Good investments. End of story.

I prefer using a julep strainer over a hawthorne strainer, it works fine for me when I'm not muddling things into the drink I don't want served.

Get speed pourers. Even if you don't plan on free-pouring, they're nice to have a more standardized pouring speed so you can pour out of an entirely full bottle without worrying about spilling too much.

A cheap bar spoon is an awful experience. A decent bar spoon is fine. An overpriced barspoon is (generally) just overpriced metal. However, the Tanqueray spoons and the Standard Spoon on kickstarter are actually pretty nice quality stuff. But that said, almost everyone I've met likes the regular old bar spoon.

Have a jigger on hand, even if you free pour. Just for when you have nicer ingredients and want to try out a drink with them and would rather have the proportions right than have to revive the drink.

I make a lot of bitters myself or super small batch infusions, so having a set of mason jars on hand has been extremely helpful.

I use cheapo squirt bottles ( ) to store simple syrup or other infused simple syrup.

If you get super into infusions and stuff like that, I've heard a lot of good things about the iSi system; I have a friend with one, he absolutely loves his. I have to admit, it takes a lot of work and patience out of infusion. As well as whipped cream, or carbonating things, or what have you... now I might want to get one.

These two items are somewhat paired (at least for me) -- a water filter and an ice tray. For ice, I'm talking like the Tovolo King Size ice trays. Water filter -- doesn't matter, as long as it filters from what I can tell.

Something that's nice to have on hand so you can double-strain is a fine-mesh strainer. Can be harder to find on the cheap though, I ended up breaking down and going to a Bed Bath & Beyond for mine since everything on Amazon was fairly expensive the thrift shops near me didn't have one.

Get nice glassware. I remember when I was younger and someone demonstrated the importance of having nice glass when tasting wine. The same thing applies. This isn't exactly bar-tools, but it's critical to your cocktail experience. Drinking out of cheap glasses, or the wrong glasses, will really hurt the presentation and your perception of the cocktail. In essence, t's important to take pride in both how you make the cocktail and how you serve the cocktail.

That's all I got for now.

u/nirreskeya · 15 pointsr/cocktails

That's what I assume and I think it's fantastic. I further assume with a vessel that large there are a couple of these clinking around inside. It almost makes me want to go get a pineapple.

u/EatYourCheckers · 15 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

I place a wooden spoon across the top of the pot. The bubbles touch the spoon and pop, and you don't get the boil over mess from the water escaping the sides of the lid.

Or a splatter guard (great for bacon!)

u/oldcrow · 13 pointsr/keto

Get one of these.

And then remember to use it, or my girlfriend will yell at you.

u/knarf86 · 12 pointsr/cocktails

I use these silicone ice molds (big) (medium/smallish). If you want to do a little extra work, here are instructions to make clear ice.

u/supadoggie · 12 pointsr/shutupandtakemymoney

That's way to pricey for ice cube ball molds. I got one from Maker's Mark that looks like this and it works. The one on Amazon is only $7.

What's so special about this that makes it so expensive?

u/shaege · 12 pointsr/castiron

That's why god invented these.


But seriously, that pan better be going in the oven, not on the stove.

u/leroy_twiggles · 11 pointsr/foodhacks

Microwave spaghetti with this.

Make hard-boiled eggs with this.

Make microwave bacon with this.

They're small and cheap, and you can't argue with those amazon reviews. Makes great stocking stuffers.

Also, make microwave eggs.

Mmmm... now I want a bacon-egg-and-cheese croissant sandwich.

u/chalks777 · 10 pointsr/asmr

yup. The reason anybody buys this at all is because the ice that it forms is completely clear. The cheap molds always end up cloudy. Also, buying the press is cheaper than buying a month's worth of pre-formed spheres. It also looks cool.

u/docinsfca · 10 pointsr/aww

Many cheaper sphere ice molds available on Amazon but they don't turn out this clear

u/Ricklepick137 · 9 pointsr/AlcoholGifRecipes
u/icanseestars · 9 pointsr/bourbon

King Cube ice trays, however, are totally worth it even if you don't use them for your whiskey (I do). They fit perfectly in an Old Fashioned glass and have massive surface area to cool the whiskey quickly without watering too much (just a splash). The cubes also last forever.

u/beautifulpoop · 9 pointsr/oddlysatisfying

Cheap one also available on Amazon w/ various shapes: sphere, cube, highball etc

u/call_me_evan · 9 pointsr/WhitePeopleTwitter

OXO Good Grips No-Spill Ice Cube Tray with Silicone Lid, 8.8 oz., White/Blue

they have a silicone flap on top that sticks to the plastic tray so you can put them in the freezer at an angle and they dont leak. also the bottoms are curved so its hella easy to get the ice out. and theyre a pleasing blue color! 11/10 would buy again

u/orangecrushucf · 9 pointsr/Cooking

I got some silicone big ice cube trays for this. They make 1/2 cup cubes. I freeze stock in them and then pop them out and store them in a ziplock bag.

u/brynm · 9 pointsr/sousvide

That's why you grab one of these

But I agree if I can I'd definitely go for the charcoal as well, or failing that even my propane grill cranked up. Problem with that is lately it's been too cold for my propane grill to even put out heat at -30 to -40 ranges.

Just FYI, Whip-it is a brand of gas-powered cream whipping devices. Whippets are a breed of skinny, fast-running dogs.

u/whistling_dixie · 8 pointsr/RedPillWives

B's mom insists that we all provide lists for her and her mother so there's no question of what to get - it's kind of nice, because you actually get what you ask for! I never got any gifts that I asked for when I was a kid, so this is cool to me. :)

  • AncestryDNA test - I've wanted to do one of these kind of tests for SO LONG, so I am finally hoping to do it this year!
  • SUSHEZI! I'm hoping this thing is cool and works well; if so, I foresee quite a bit of sushi in our future.
  • This lap desk so I can shitpost from bed more comfortably. :)
u/AirFresh_in_the_Mayo · 8 pointsr/cocktails

It is! Mine are the tovolo king trays, but it probably looks a bit bigger than it is because the glass is pretty small. When I went to look it up I noticed these bigger cubes for the first time. I have the sphere version of that and it works well, so I imagine these mega-cubes are nice too.

u/barnacledoor · 8 pointsr/AskCulinary

would one of these help? a splatter shield.

u/moretaj · 7 pointsr/Mommit

Mini ice cubes = amazing for teething.

Get trays like these:

My daughter would just take one and suck on it until it melted. To this day (she's 4) she will ask for a bowl of these mini ice cubes as a snack.

u/DancesWithElectrons · 7 pointsr/bourbon

Not enough thermal mass to cool off anything.

I really like the 2.5" ice balls - you can find them here:

u/happywaffle · 7 pointsr/pics

Cool looking but not super practical—only one part of the bourbon is being cooled at any given time.

A good ice sphere will chill the whiskey more efficiently and melt nice-and-slow. I use these molds with distilled water and they work pretty well. (When the ice sphere finally cracks, I end up fishing out the smaller chunks so they don't dilute the drink.)

u/felicia-sexopants · 6 pointsr/tea

why not go for a stainless steel funnel? Hit up a restaurant supply store, and you'll be set for super cheap. Otherwise, these look fine.

u/Rykno · 6 pointsr/GoodValue

Tovolo, hands down. Some goofy space-age rubber that refuses to crack or misshape. I have 5 trays of varying sizes, I challenge guests to break them.

u/nacho_balls · 6 pointsr/ketorecipes

> sushieze

one of these?

u/Costco1L · 6 pointsr/Cooking

Making the mouse in a whipped cream canister would make a disturbingly accurate poo-moji.

What is your plan for the eyes, white and dark chocolate?

u/gravybby · 6 pointsr/AskMen

I am not fond of them. I received a set as a gift and I've only used them once. Stone on glass is an uncomfortable texture and I got a slight mineral-y taste from them.

I like these better.

u/TreeRifik · 6 pointsr/lifehacks

Or this. Perfect for rocks glasses.

u/Bourgi · 6 pointsr/sousvide

I wonder if you try, you should reduce the water content of the batter. When making a pancake on a pan, it "rises" through water bubbling and evaporating.

You won't have the same effect with a sous vide unless the water is at boiling temps... but a fun idea would be to place the batter inside a whipped cream dispenser (like below) and dispense the batter into a mason jar or something so the batter is aerated. You'd have more of a sponge cake than a pancake but you can always broil it after.

u/speenbean · 6 pointsr/cocktails

I have these and I love them, they work like a charm.

u/kai_al_sun · 5 pointsr/minipainting

I bought a set of small funnels off amazon and coated them with rustoleum “never wet” The paint just slides off the funnel into the bottle leaving very little waste.

Edit: found the link to the funnels. Norpro Stainless Steel Funnels, Set of 3

u/glyoung · 5 pointsr/cocktails

It's all about the dilution. Using that store bought ice that has the hole in the middle is fine for cooling your drinks, but just know that there is a ton of surface area with those so it will dilute faster. You would have to gauge the amount you're used to stirring/shaking as to not over-dilute the drink. Knowing how long to stir/shake just comes with practice.

If you want to get more serious or have more consistent results, get ice trays, preferably the square ones like these and/or these.

u/rezinball · 5 pointsr/shutupandtakemymoney

Here's a link to the cheaper one with free shipping for prime members.

u/egtownsend · 5 pointsr/Eve

Storytime! I was so afraid of rolling sushi I actually bought a Sushezi. It is a terrible invention (it does actually work though), and I've long since realized that rolling my own is far easier than wrangling that contraption. Give rolling a try, and if you mess up, just eat it as a sushi bowl and it'll still be delicious! I believe in your sushi skills, internet stranger!

u/taburl · 5 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I purchased a random device, the Sushezi, on Amazon that allows you to cheat on actually constructing/rolling typical sushi rolls.

I figured I'd give it a shot and see if I liked it... and now I've used it about once a week for several months. Once you have the staples mentioned by /u/unthused, you can even get imitation crab meat, some avocados, etc., at Aldi for next to nothing.

u/moisttrickery · 5 pointsr/sushi

I got a Sushezi last year for a secret santa gift. They work pretty good.

u/Electric_Rectum · 5 pointsr/shutupandtakemymoney

Also 10 bucks, except you get two. Not a motherfucking death star, though.

u/finnegan-beginagain · 5 pointsr/homegym

Here is what you do:

!) Check out the history of the Central Park Theater in chicago (

2)Once you do that, go get yourself one of these bad-boys: (I'm assuming your close to Ashville, but you get the idea).
3) Now go and then get one of these: (you'll need the size, trust me).

4)While your at it get and a couple-20 of Now, also get some Zip-ties, while you're at it.

Here is the plan:

  1. Lay all the ice trays out in your yard - it's ok that they are black, they are made of silicone - they will be fine.

    2)Now, set up your fan where you want it and plug in your freezer where ever you can. Ideally out of the way of your lifting space but... I mean, we aren't going to be doing much lifting in the heat anyway, so let's consider the order of operations here - step by each.

    3)Alright, take your garden hose and fill up the ice trays. Once filled set them in the freezer over night.

    4)Here is the time consuming part - once you have made the ice in their containers, you are gonna wanna get them out, and into the bags. I know, it's not ideal, but since you aren't working out, hey "Forearm day!".

  2. Okay, the bags of ice are made - the fan is set up - the only thing left to do is zip tie those suckers to the back of the fan, and pump yourself up, in the heat, to do some cool-ass lifting. Crank that sucker on and be blown away by the technology of over 120 years.

    The whole package, is probably about 400-backaroos, but I'm assuming that's O.K. as you were looking for a cheaper option than a full air handler, and spray-foam insulation. If not I can certainly help price that out for you (Although, I'm probably going to recommend geothermal - buy once cry once). Hopefully this helped.

    Honestly, make sure that you have pleany of water and read up on the three metabolic pathways. I've been yankin' your chain. If people can find a way to work out in the UAE you can work out in North Carolina. Go to the jbosss93-perfered-hot-CrossFit-athlete google images page for motivation, remember why you have a home gym to begin with, bring a towel, and wreck house. You didn't build this thing at someone else's house. We all believe in you.
u/Ghigs · 4 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

You can get a silicone mold to make larger ice cubes that are actual cubes.

But you are kind of up against some trade-offs here. Less surface area means it's not going to cool your drink as quickly. A lot of the cooling comes from the act of melting itself, as the phase change of water takes a lot of heat, far more than the cube can absorb without melting.

u/DudeImTheBagMan · 4 pointsr/tea

Care for a gin and titonic?

u/nllpntr · 4 pointsr/Whatcouldgowrong

Ultra-Purewhip and Whip-It! brands seem to be most commonly used for huffing. The Whip-It! brand actually specifies that they use medical grade nitrous... for whipped cream. And check out the graphics. I'm amazed they get away with it.

edit: So this is fucked up, if anyone cares. Turns out I got really drunk after posting this last night... I must have either remembered this comment or looked at my comment history, because today I got a shipping confirmation email out of the blue for a big box of these, plus a canister. Thanks, Drunk Me, for ordering shit I don't really want, but will happily accept anyway. My weekend will now be hilarious.

u/theboylilikoi · 4 pointsr/tea

All you gotta use is a normal whipped cream canister and the N2O cartridges for it, which they sell nearly everywhere (I've found the cartridges at target before, but I usually get them on amazon). The N2O is pretty standard with these canisters, it's usually used for making whipped cream but has a bunch of cool other uses (evidently) :)

u/hebug · 4 pointsr/cocktails

Those are from a Tovolo King Cube ice tray. It's pretty awesome for drinks on the rocks. <$9 on Amazon here:

u/ZeOppositeOfProgress · 4 pointsr/Coffee

I don't really understand your question: you want a hot cold brew? You want a cold brew but want it warmer than it currently is?

If you're looking for a solid cold brew, I have the 1000ml Hario Cold Brew pot and this recipe is golden:

Pour 108g of coffee into the filter then place the filter in the pot. Pour filtered water through this filter until it reaches about a quarter inch from the top. Let it sit for 12-18 hours in the fridge. Remove the filter and discard the coffee. You now have a good concentrated base for iced coffee.

I plop a square ice cube in a glass, pour the concentrate and filtered water into the glass at a ratio of 1:1. I drink mine black but if you add cream/milk/flavoring, then change up your water with a whatever mix you want. Add sugar in at the end. Since this is cold, I recommend syrups over crystal sugar as you may find the crystal sugar settling at the bottom.

Been doing this for a year and have settled on this recipe being my fav. Good luck!

u/HerpDerpinAtWork · 4 pointsr/cocktails

If you can spare $10, you can be making them in your freezer. They are indeed cool (and a staple of any drink I make that I want on the rocks), but not cool enough to make up for the way that drink was served. Wrong glass... ehh ok I could give that a pass if they're going for style. Understirred... ehh ok it's being served on the rocks, could get a pass for not wanting to water it down too much before serving. But come on man, unless you're Gaz Regan finger-stirring a Negroni, your fingers have no business anywhere near the rim of my glass. This is Day 1 drink serving etiquette.

u/mentel42 · 4 pointsr/bourbon

Believe it has to do with the the pressure applied by the weight of the ice press (and possibly the heat conductivity of the metal itself). If i remember from chemistry class, this is akin to how ice skating works. The increased pressure from your weight turns the ice below the blade to water so you can glide on it, and it refreezes as you move off that spot. In this case, the metal pushing on the ice block melts it, the water drips away so more of the ice can melt, until the shape & temp of the metal change enough so something about physics stops working (as you can see, not a lot of post-HS science education for me, so that's not very technical)

here's a site with a video, and they cite some problems with the device, i.e., that you need to get it back up to room temp before you can make a 2nd sphere

and an additional edit, I could never afford this sort of thing, the Tivolo ice spheres work well for me at home (my nephews find them hilarious)

u/d0nt_care_anymore · 4 pointsr/cocktails

Just a cool box and some of these the actual brand doesn't matter they're all the same. Water is tap water (we have good tap water in my area though, I'm UK) and it's best warm. Then I basically flip the moulds upside down so the air hole is at the bottom (forcing impurities out as it freezes) Also finally the cool box has to be deep so as to not have the moulds near the bottom of it and leave the lid off so it freezes from the top down. Sorry for wall of text, it took a while to get the process down so thought I'd save you the hassle. Oh shit yeah freezer on lowest setting, freeze time of approx 30 hours. Don't be tempted to peek lol. When you're done you'll have cloudy ice at the bottom and the balls should be crystal clear. Should. Lol

u/Awkward_Lubricant · 4 pointsr/Mariners

I finally bought a mini fridge for my basement so I don't have to go upstairs to get cold beer. It also has a separate (from fridge) freezer compartment so I can make drinks with my large ice cubes. I think I've made it, nowhere to go from here.

u/MonolithOfTyr · 4 pointsr/outside

I was gifted mine by another player but am considering replacement as it's become worn.

This one is even better than mine as it has a higher initial durability rating.

u/xynix_ie · 3 pointsr/hotsauce

You can get a cheap canning kit:

It will save fingers and faces :)

Then a cheap stainless funnel set up: which I boil while managing the bottles.

So like a total of $22 bucks.

u/buttcheaQ · 3 pointsr/Cooking

These right here have made lots of frozen garden pesto cubes for me. I admit I do not use them to make ice, but I do use them for other food hunk purposes. You can remove odor with baking soda rub.

Check out a sushi bazooka. It looks like some cheesy "As Seen On TV" BS product, but I have one and I can verify it actually works... though I haven't done keto sushi with it.

u/Vileness_fats · 3 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

40 whipped cream bottles? Yes. Taping one to each hand? No you facking amateur, just smoke a joint. Unless you;re taping the whipped cream bottes to your hands & then eating the whipped cream, in which case I salute your good work.
Also, FYI, if you are inhaling that sweet, sweet nitrous and not stealing it, just invest in a professional [whipped cream siphon] (, a bag of balloons, and a few boxes of chargers. Sure, you can't tape the balloons to your hands but you do save some money over time.

u/jeffreyww · 3 pointsr/tonightsdinner

It freezes well, I tend to make a big batch and freeze it in one of those silicone trays that makes for a nice sized frozen block. Stuff works well in chili, too.

u/mercvt · 3 pointsr/bourbon

Try these.

I got some for Christmas and they are nice in drinks. They melt slower so wont dilute as much, but still give you a nicely chilled bourbon.

u/murrayhenson · 3 pointsr/cocktails

It's easy!

  • Get one of these Coleman six-pack coolers
  • Get one or two of these Tovolo ice cube trays
  • Set your freezer so it gets nice and cold. -18C/0F should do it.
  • Cut some holes in the bottom of the ice cube trays. This is easier said than done since those things are really flexible ...I used a box cutter and cut square holes.
  • Remove the lid of the Coleman cooler (it's detachable)
  • Fill the Coleman cooler about, oh, 2/3rds to 3/4ths the way up. Just use regular cold tap water.
  • You don't want your cube tray sitting on the bottom of the cooler. Figure out a way to keep it off the bottom. I like to use a (cleaned, duh) cottage cheese plastic container that's about 1.5 inches tall and about 3 inches across. Anything, though, to keep your cube tray well off the bottom of the cooler.
  • Ok, float (well, sink) your ice cube tray until it's very lightly sitting on top of the spacer you used
  • Pop the cooler into the freezer. It'll take about 1.5 days to get frozen solid
  • After about 1.5 days take the cooler out of the freezer and pop the block of ice out
  • Use a bread knife to slice and dice. You'll find that you can't cut the ice very deep but if you score it and then tap the blade with a hammer or something nice and heavy then the ice will tend to split as you've scored it.
  • Once you've extracted your ice cube tray, pop those clear cubes out. You're a [adjective the cool kids use to describe cool people] now.
  • Hey, don't throw out all the ice that was around your cube tray! All that slag can be used for shaking or for your own drinks when you don't want to use the "good" ice.

    That's it. I've made hundreds of ice cubes this way and it's quite reliable.
u/garzalaw · 3 pointsr/cocktails
u/tribble222 · 3 pointsr/cocktails

I like these larger ones better

u/kmillns · 3 pointsr/bourbon

I've got those, and the King cubes (and the rocks, three sets as presents, actually).

I think I prefer the King cubes slightly since they're easier to fill and make a ton of and they tend to come out clearer.

u/DaBake · 3 pointsr/cocktails

They're pretty cheap on Amazon. This is the bad boy I've got in my freezer.

u/jackatman · 3 pointsr/alcohol

Welcome. Its a big world of booze out there and it can be quite intimidating. My first and best suggestion is to find a good bar with a passionate bartender and let them take you under their wing. They can tell you about what they have in stock and will typically let you try a nip of this and a tot of that before committing. This way you get some tutelage and you don't have to buy a bottle of stuff you may not like. I realize in Utah this may be more difficult, but I understand there are clubs you can become a 'member' of in order to get this kind of experience.

Here is a tasting starter I wrote in another thread that will hopefully help with the appreciation side of things. Also, you don't need to store spirits in the freezer. It is a good way to weaken flavors, which is just fine if you have crappy booze and the flavors are bad. You on the other hand want the full complement of good flavors so room temperature is where you want to be. If you do like a little chill, I suggest these. They will cool your beverage and release a little bit of water, which leads me to my next point. For beginning drinkers the taste of alcohol can be overpowering and hide many of the nuances that are part of the experience. I like to bring out those nuances in one of 3 ways. 1) On the rocks with that ice I mentioned. 2) Splash of water dilutes the alcohol a bit. I suggest about a 2-1 or 3-1 booze-water ratio. 3)And soda. My personal favorite. The ice chills, you get the dilution effect, and the carbonation can really make some underlying flavors come through in a big way. I do this with almost every new spirit I come across in addition to trying it neat (room temp, nothing but booze). 1-2 booze to soda ratio. For added effect you can use a mineral water.

Here are some of my thoughts on the best of each category:

Vodka: Silver Tree (though booze snob that I am, vodka is the least interesting spirit.) Svedka is good too. Ketel and the like are over priced. The point of vodka is medicinal. It is supposed to be colorless odorless, and tasteless. In short :This is not the booze you are looking for

Whiskey: Leopold bros. Maryland rye, Bullit Rye, Jameson

Scotch: Laphroig 15 is my favorite, but for a good entry try either Dewars or Johnny Walker is fine.

Bourbon: Weller, Makers Mark, Bullit

Tequila: Casa Noble reposado Is my all time favorite. I work in a bar with over 150 tequilas so that is a question I get a lot. The best advice is to make sure that what ever you buy it is 100% agave. Reposado means a little time in oak. Anejo means more. Blanco means none. It will take some time and experimentation to find out if your palette likes oak or not.

Rum: Ron Zacapa 21 year, Appleton Estates, Oronoco, Sailor Jerry

Gin: Leopold bros, Magellan, G'vine

Wine: Beginning wine drinkers usually like big Argentinian malbecs on the red side and either creamy new world Chardonnays or Sauvignon Blancs on the white side. Oregon Pinot noirs are also popular. Rioja (red) and vihno Verde (white) are both underrated styles. (Dont worry if you dont know what I mean when I call a wine creamy. The person in the liquor store should get it and know what to grab.)

Beer: Like wine its a whole big world. I suggest buying a few brewers boxes. They are a selection of 3-5 styles from a single brewery in a 12 pack. Once you have a few favorites picked out head to /r/beer for more suggestions.

Sorry thats so long. Let us know how you are coming along.

Looks like it could be a whipped cream maker, minus the cartridge and the nozzle the cream comes out of.

u/ivovic · 3 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Yep, that's why I called it the really expensive way. It's really one of those excess items, priced WAY beyond its actual value.

There are some pretty good moulds ^(not an affiliate link) out there, though, but it takes a little practice to make perfect spheres with them, since you need to leave a little gap at the top for the ice to expand.

u/DistinguishedSpirits · 3 pointsr/cocktails

Yeah, that sounds like a bad ass Old Fashioned. There are a dozen legit ways to make this drink and have it still be considered an Old Fashioned. This one happens to be my favorite, but there's nothing wrong with more bitters or another twist or building it in the glass with smaller ice cubes. It's all about how you like it.

As far as the ice goes, I got a couple molds from a Japanese market. They are pretty good, but a friend of mine has a better one from Tovolo. Check it out here:

I'm glad you like the videos. I'm not sure what's going to be next. I've got a lot in the queue, some really classic cocktails the way likes them with specific brands being mentioned, some invented/interpreted drinks, some drinks that other characters enjoyed. All kinds of things. Was there anything in particular you'd want to see?

Use the mesh from a splatter screen, like this one. They don't unravel. Glue it from the inside of the car shell and use a fine tip x-acto knife to clean up any glue that you can see from the outside.

u/FluffyBlizzard · 3 pointsr/Cooking

you can buy splatter screens like this that you just set on top of your pan when you put your meat in and it prevents oil flying everywhere.

i would use the good amount of oil to prevent smoke, and just go with a splatter screen. plus wiping up oil is better than dealing with smoke imo.

For pouring I use a stainless steel funnel. But depending on the bottle size, I might also use a 25Ml serological pipette with hand pump.

Downside to the pump & pipette combo, you need steady hands as it's just over 20 inches long, can be a little unwieldy.

The small one is great for one and two ounce boston rounds. The medium is good on four ounce boston rounds.

u/Nutz75 · 2 pointsr/recipes

I roast and freeze it.

Preheat oven to 400F

Cut of the tops enough to expose the cloves

Drizzle with olive oil (or a bit of chicken broth if you want lower fat)

Roast for 30 minutes or until brown and tender

Let cool, then squeeze garlic out from bottom of bulbs into a bowl

Put in ice cube tray and Freeze

*Once frozen, pop out of ice cube tray and put into Zip lock bag

Now you have chunks of delicious, sweet, roasted garlic to add to meals you cook or salad dressings, or whatever you like roasted garlic in.

I used the small ice cube trays that come with mini fridges
like the ones here

that way you can use a little or a lot depending on the size dish you're preparing

u/Amgroma · 2 pointsr/hookah

Everything that goes in the ice chamber, stays in the ice chamber.

The cooling effect is far greater than when I would put ice in the vase and I highly recommend it. Makes quite a difference (From what I've noticed, if you use small ice cubes packed to the rim), as the whole stem gets cold to the touch.

u/mattsilv · 2 pointsr/cocktails

I believe you are referring to Nugget Ice, which generally is done by $2,000+ commercial grade machines.

Oh nuts, I thought I'd added the link. I'll edit it in, but here it is as well:

I just added a couple of drops of peppermint flavor for the mint ones, and I used properly-cube-shaped silicone ice cube trays to get them prettily shaped. I just stuck the sticks in, stuck them in the freezer to get them hard enough to pop out of the mold, and then stored them back in the freezer until they were ready to deliver. Bagged them up like in the picture. You could presumably use any shape mold for the same effect, just as long as you could get the stick in.

Nice, I didn't catch that edit of yours, sorry.

Actually, the link that is still in your comment is the knock-off version, it doesn't look to me that Amazon sells the real Sushezi or you aren't guaranteed to get one depending on the reseller.

So, here's a story about Stubby (me), I bought this ridiculous contraption on amazon that like, "makes sushi" for you because I wanted to make healthy vegetarian sushi at home instead of spending all my coin on fried sushi rolls (because let's be real, if I am going out for sushi, I am going ALL OUT, you know what I mean?)

Anyway, it's hilarious but got the job done. I did make a sacrilegious "BLAT" sushi roll. And it was pretty tasty.

u/LiliedHart · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

LMAO sorry, oops. Here you go.

Basically rice labeled 'sushi rice' will do, I used to get Kokuho Rose or something like that. He's also going to want seaweed sheets. Any Asian grocery store will have these, but the rice might come in really, really massive bags. I found some on Amazon that were more expensive per oz but more manageable in size.

I would recommend a isi whipping siphon over a soda stream. You can use nitrous and carbon dioxide chargers in them, so you get seltzer and whipped cream. There are also hundreds of paleo friendly recipes you can make in these things, and it is still cheaper than buying seltzer a bottle at a time.

I like the Tovolo 2" cube trays for my Old Fashioneds. Less surface area and higher volume chills as well with far less dilution. It's also easier to stir with these.

u/FrostCollar · 2 pointsr/funny
u/zillah1985 · 2 pointsr/bourbon

I feel like the point of ice is really the water, not necessarily the cold. Whiskey takes time to get cold, and the immediate melting of the ice helps open up the whiskey more. Something you can't get from stones.

The best investment in my opinion are king cubes. Larger surface area so it takes much longer for your drink to become diluted too fast.

u/treitter · 2 pointsr/cocktails

Get a large-cube silicone ice cube tray like this one. They're fantastic for Old Fashioneds, and anything on-the-rocks.

Just keep in mind that because they take longer to melt, they take longer to chill your drink. But it should keep it at a fairly consistent temperature.

Also, these take much longer to freeze, so you need to plan ahead (takes at least 4 hours in my freezer, I think).

u/the_troy · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I have done the same with a home-depot bucket. Literally one of the easiest things to make. You don't need to make it air-tight like the instructions say since it is fog and it will go anywhere anyways.

Works great I have it spew out from underneath my bar which is the main focus point of the party. Makes the fog so much better.

Also I like to use giant ice-cubes so they don't melt as quick (I just make up a bunch prior to the party) :

u/neurogeneticist · 2 pointsr/whiskey

u/Robo3000 · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

What people should be using instead:

u/cryospam · 2 pointsr/mead

You want a regular 20 ounce paintball canister, and the Taprite regulator that is specifically designed to thread right into one. Realistically 1 pound of CO2 will do 1/2 barrel of beer, so a 20 ounce canister will last you a bunch of fills, so while the initial outlay is like 75 bucks (for the tank and the unit) you're looking at like 1-2 dollars if that per blanket you lay down. MUCH cheaper than buying the one shots.

If you don't brew that much, get a Whipped Cream dispenser (doesn't have to be that one, ANY of them will work) and then get disposable creme charges. N2O is also heavier than air (like CO2) so you'll get your blanket.

u/some_keto_man · 2 pointsr/ketorecipes

Made two batches last night and froze them overnight. 8oz hwc and 2tbsp peanut butter (peanuts and salt only) and another of 8oz hwc and 2tbsp coconut butter. Came out as hard blocks so popped them out of containers and cut off some. It is ok. I wouldn't do again without sugar substitute. I am staying away from sugar substitutes for now so have to shelve this idea for awhile.

If I were to do it again with sugar substitute and freeze it I think it would be best to use a Cream Whipper and do dollop on a cookie sheet and freeze.

Cream Whipper (idea):

Cococnut Butter I used:

I'll stick to eating a spoonful of peanut butter or coconut butter out of the jar until I am ready to incorporate sugar substitutes.

u/higherbrow · 2 pointsr/Scotch

There's nothing wrong with chilling your scotch in the fridge.

Some other options: distilled water ice spheres (I use this to make them) will water your scotch less than ice cubes due to physics I don't understand.

You can also chill the glass, like a frosted beer mug, but I would line the glass you are going to put in the freezer to make sure it doesn't pick up any film.

If you want to drink your scotch slightly chilled but not refridgerator temperature and that's worth shelling out for a wine cooler for you, more power to you, it's the best option, I think, for the effect you're looking for. But if the temperature out of the fridge is all right by you, you will not harm your bottle by refridgerating it.

Highly suggest one of these grease splatter screens. Don't expect them to block 100% of the grease, but it will make a significant difference. I'm guessing that it blocks approximately 62% of grease.

Wow that's gonna be hard. You can go waay 90s, and use microwave egg poachers/bacon racks/griddle/steamer. We had one of those egg poacher things when I was a kid and it worked fine for a long time. I wouldn't expect any of those things to last forever, but they're cheap and should last you at least a couple years.

With those, obviously you could make bacon & eggs. You could also steam cauliflower for cauli mash?

I'm late to the party on this one, but if you don't own it already, you have to buy the Makin Bacon. You can get it at amazon, Walmart, ebay... wherever you like.

If you're a bacon-eater, this is absolutely game-changing. Once you have your microwave dialed in, you can choose anywhere from chewy to absolutely brittle, or anywhere in-between.

This isn't a paid advertisement... but believe me, it's one of the best 2 items I've ever added to my kitchen.

u/aenea · 1 pointr/food

I've got a bacon hanger that works wonderfully in the microwave- the grease doesn't collect on the bacon, and I just pop it in the dishwasher when I'm done. I love it.

u/omg-onoz · 1 pointr/keto

I have a similar microwave bacon cooker. I love it for all the same reasons you mentioned.

I honestly haven't noticed any change in the taste making it this way vs. in the oven vs. in my cast iron pan. But that could be just me... I am apparently an equal oppportunity bacon eater :)

u/nothinbuttherain · 1 pointr/mildlyinteresting

Still possible. It requires a bit of involvement until you get to know the characteristics of your microwave, but I did my bacon microwave only for years, and it came out perfectly most of the time. I like mine with a little chew also.

I used this and later this.

You can also use a shitload of paper towels on a plate - but the cookers are a little neater to use.

IMO they worked equally well. You do need to be careful or parts of the bacon will overheat and (IMO) taste off. But that "off" taste is exactly how my wife's bacon tastes when I cook it for her in a pan - she likes it damn near burned.

Takes a bit of experimentation, but you can do half a dozen strips in around 5 min once you get the hang. Thinner bacon takes considerably less time, really thick might take a bit more. Reduced power is the key. I haven't done it that way in awhile for no particular reason, but 70-80% power is good. Depending on the thickness of the bacon, I use about .75 minutes * number of strips. Again keep an eye on it until you get a feel. 30 more seconds can make a significant difference with bacon. Also, it will cook just a little more while it cools off.

u/growingupsux · 1 pointr/howto

While it doesn't brown right, it cooks through, and I actually love the chewy consistency of it.

Like the stuff they sold in the 90s to microwave normal uncooked bacon on T racks.

Not the precooked heat and heat stuff, though that is good too, eaten cold out of the fridge is a great snack - like jerky.

u/sggrant323 · 1 pointr/keto

I got this at Walmart for $7. You can load an entire package on it and cook it all at once. Make sure to lay a paper towel over the top to prevent bacon splatter from going all over the microwave. Though if you forget, it doesn't really matter. Your house will just have a slight hint of a bacon smell every time you cook something.

The best part about this device is it catches all the bacon grease in the bottom so you can save it and use it when cooking other stuff like greens. I have a big jar of bacon grease.

Tovolo trays. They're awesome.

Can confirm. I used to use normal ice trays like these. Then I bought these trays which make nearly perfect cubes and the difference with these is already huge. They melt much slower. I also have to get me 2inch cube trays.

well, at 4 double-shots per cartridge, you are looking at approx 14c / shot.

If you get a $150 Twist instead of a $650 Rancilio Silvia, you will have to make over 3500 espressos before the cost evens out. It's not worth obsessing over the minute cost difference per shot when the device itself is so much cheaper

u/awake_but_asleep · 1 pointr/DrugStashes

People do it out of the can? Jesus.

Buy one of these from amazon, they're smaller and cheaper than the actual whip cream crackers and even easier to use. Just be careful not to freeze your hand like my friend did once.

Then get some of these from WalMart or London Drugs or Amazon

Thats the cost locally here, my friend used to do it, and said it was about the same price from when he lived on the other side of the state. It makes sense that it would be cheaper from ebay or other sources because they could just get it from a country that doesn't restrict it at all.

u/The_Kief_Chief · 1 pointr/Drugs

I don't know man...move to Seattle. I saw people hitting the cracker in public areas quite commonly during my years living there, as nitrous is extremely commonly sold in like every smoke shop around the city and they advertise the fuck out of it; There's even a big cardboard cut-out person holding a whip cream canister advertising it ( It's a life-sized cutout of the girl on this box )

The vagrants who can't afford nitrous chargers are sitting on the sidewalk huffing cans of spray paint...another thing that I came across more than one time. But yeah man, there are lots of empty chargers laying around the city.

Camp Chef Sushezi Roller Kit - Sushi Rolls Made Easy

(I hope that link works) hear me out. The sushezi roller looks rediculous. I mean. You load the rice in, make a trough, add the fillings, close it. And boom. Sushi roll. I make homemade "sushi" with it at least once a week. No, it's not authentic, but it makes life so easy.

Botan Calrose Rice Extra Fancy, 5lbs

This is also the rice I use. I can usually find it in a Walmart though. I don't have a rice cooker persay, but I do have one of those instapots that has a rice setting on it. It shouldn't be difficult to cook in a pot though.

I'm no expert by any means, but let me know if you have questions!

For tasty food why not surprise her by making sushi with these products. Not only will you show your skill to her but also she will love you even more:

All you need to do is find the sushi recipes online not to mention you can youtube it:


For cleaning why not surprise her and make your own safe cleaning products. Hell do some research on how to make cleaning products. Nothing says I love you like making her gifts especially ones that can help her clean and be safe.

That is all I got.

u/GeoChem66 · 1 pointr/PLCB

I haven't tried many infusions, but its on my to do list and I plan on trying the techniques suggested by Jeffrey Morgenthaler. I saw that he infuses liquor and cocktails using an iSi gourmet whip plus. The device basically uses nitrous oxide to increase the partial pressure within a container to increase diffusion rates between solids and liquids. If you have his book, the method is covered in the section titled "Infusions of herbs, spices, and other ingredients" on page 127. You can also find a few of his vids where he uses the device to create Cadillac foams for topping cocktails. HERE is a fairly informative vid to illustrate the idea of using the device to rapidly infuse spirits.

Every time I do the Bourbon trail, I always bring back a bag of bourbon-soaked char. Basically, when they empty the barrels, pieces of char (bits of bourbon-soaked burnt white oak) empty from the barrel. This stuff is great for grilling (parts a bourbon wood flavor to meats) and I love using it in my home brew (bourbon barrel stouts). However, I’ve really wanted to use the char bits in the iSi whip to impart a barrel taste to Manhattans. Its on my to do list.

u/kaidomac · 1 pointr/AskCulinary

I have the 1-pint whip: (takes both nitrous oxide aka N2O & also CO2 cartridges for carbonation)

These injectors:

These soda chargers:

These N2O chargers:

Although the new ones are like more than double the capacity:

It's one of those oddball kitchen gadgets that is somewhat expensive & niche, and has annoying recurring fees for the different cartridges, but you'll find yourself using it all the time for weird little projects...custom sodas, homemade whipped creams (dairy & non-dairy), modernist techniques like foams, etc.

If you're the type of person who likes to tinker in your kitchen & have the budget available, then it's a super-fun toy (tool) to have in your inventory. I use this & my Searzall on a weekly basis for all kinds of random stuff! I can dig up a list of things to try if you're looking for ideas!

We used to save chicken broth from boiling chicken parts, then freeze it into large ice cubes. Drop one of those into the dog's water bowl and they'll drink more water than you can believe.

u/jwcolour · 1 pointr/Frugal

Then you get to fish the stupid rocks out, and rinse them off. I've also had some that were metal and worked a little better but fuck those too. Now I just use one of these:

Makes big enough cubes that they don't melt super quick and water down the drink but chill it enough. If i'm not drinking a drink neat.

u/Comms · 1 pointr/pics

But no ice? I get that if you think it melts too fast. A little chill in an old fashioned is nice and I recommend an ice sphere mold or cube mold. Fits a lowball perfectly and melts slowly.

Oh, you've gotta get these big ice cube trays. Only way to enjoy your cocktail, if you're serious about your drinks.(

Does she has glassware? Collins glasses, old fashioned glasses, highballs? Might be good to look for some of those too. Also, people often give away glassware on Craigslist for free or for next to nothing.

If I can think of anything else, I'll come back to this. Should get you off to a good start though.

u/SpareiChan · 1 pointr/slowcooking

I use these things I get from local food store, they are thick foodsafe plastic rated for microwave, dishwasher, and freezer. I've yet to break or damage one.

I wouldn't ever recommend glass in the freezer unless it's the thick wide mouth jar but even then plastic is safer and has the flex.

These work great too as they a huge and let you make good size broth/stock cubes.

u/vinnievon · 1 pointr/whiskey

Whiskey drinker male here for far too long - so here are my two cents.

  1. Decanters are really kind of pointless. They can look cool but meh.

  2. Whiskey stones suck. I bought them and were really disappointed. Get these things. They fucking ROCK. (No pun intended.)
  3. This guy is basically THE voice on Whiskey. Great read. Unfortunately he has passed away but good guide for the future.
  4. For glassware I have kind of been interested in these just because they look awesome. I personally own these and they also get some great comments. I've personally never really found a shape that changes the taste so I just wanted something a little more flashy.
  5. I'm turning 30 this year and I bought myself a 21 year old bottle of bourbon and am getting it laser engraved. Things Remembered will do anything really so if you know what he likes (or just as an add in, doesn't have to be crazy expensive) maybe an engraved bottle.

    Hope this helps!
u/drfalken · 1 pointr/whiskey

Don't buy him a bottle. Yeah of course everyone who drinks wants something to drink, but he will drink it and then its gone. Get him something that lasts, something that every time he drinks he will think about you and the gift. Ice cube trays and glasses are your best bet. There are also some places where you can get a phrase engraved on the glass as well, which is an added touch.

The 2 things that my whiskey can't live without are a nice double old fashioned glass (get more than one, they're cheep)
Crate and Barrel
And a nice BIG ice tray Tovolo King Cube

Don't get whiskey stones, they can hold flavor from one whiskey to the next, and my preference is a little water with my whiskey, hence the ice cubes. You can go for a Glencairn they are designed for whiskey, but in my mind i prefer the double old fashioned glasses, because they're more versatile.

u/LazyWASP · 1 pointr/whiskey

I only use filtered water when I make giant ice cubes because
I can taste the difference between ice made with filtered water and ice made with plain tap water.

I prefer my whiskey neat, with a glass of filtered water on the rock.

u/konahopper · 1 pointr/bourbon

[I have this](
e+cube+tray), and I love it. Didnt care for whiskey stones, but I also don't mind some dilution. OP: Favorite bourbon is Wild Turkey Rare Breed or Woodford Reserve, although I've been on a Rye kick lately.

u/nabokovsnose · 1 pointr/cocktails

Pro tip: DON'T SHAKE IT. Drinks without acids (lime, lemon, etc.) or egg/dairy should be stirred, not shaken, no matter what James Bond would have you believe. Stirred and strained is the way to go here to your preference, a la a Sazerac. You could also at some point try a single large ice cube or ice sphere, as this melt – and therefore dilute – much more slowly. Overdilution "bruises" the drink, which is probably why you dislike your old fashioneds over those quick melting bar rocks.

Edit: Sorry, I didn't see someone else had said this further down.

u/BallzDeep9 · 1 pointr/kratom

I'm using the BIG 2" cubes. King Cube Trays on Amazon or even in stores, Target etc. Use a powered "frother" to mix, also sold at Target. This way you skip the "paste" step which isn't necessary, just use water and a few drops lemon juice. I get 3-4 grams in each 2" cube. Quick and easy.

u/JayPASS · 1 pointr/whiskey

I have this Tovolo and like it. The mold is soft, so it is easy to get the ice cube out.

u/kiss_my_balls · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

I got this and love it. The large cubes melt very slowly so it doesn't water down your drink.

u/sassafrasAtree · 1 pointr/cocktails

I agree with Hebug... they sound like a recipe for disaster.
Furthermore there are some sound chemical reasons for adding water and/or ice to scotch and whiskey...

I either drink my scotch neat with a few drops of water or when I have them on the rocks I use those Tovolo King cube molds (

This is completely unrelated to full on mixing drinks but Tovolo Sphere Ice Molds were pretty life changing when it comes down to drinking beverages. A novelty for some but ice spheres won't water down a drink as quickly as normal ice.

u/philamander · 1 pointr/glassblowing

I have accidentally made crystal clear ice in one of these and it wasn't boiled and it was from the tap. I have always wondered how that happened.
Again, I have tried boiling the water, but it didn't do what I wanted close enough. I have NOT tried boiling the water in the plastic tray or with plastic wrap on it. I didn't think that plastic wrap was not air permeable.
I will try to use these sphere ice cube trays I have and boil the water in the microwave and cover it in plastic wrap.
I did try to boil water, pour it in these trays, and I used a bar clamp to cinch the mold between two flat glass plates. I tried to make it airtight. Then, I froze that. It got a LITTLE clear, but not enough.
How close could I get with this? My question is...if it was YOU trying to make a solid sphere of ice that is as clear as possible, what would you do? Efficiency and utility aside. I was this purely for aesthetic purposes to impress my friends when we drink.

EDIT: I'm still willing to pay for something like this. A glass tray for ice that will allow me to microwave water and boil it safely, then with smooth edges that I can wrap plastic wrap around or clamp a rubber board on top of for freezing. If there is no top to the ice cube tray, I would imagine that glass wouldn't have an issue anymore and I wouldn't be worried about melting plastic or anything while boiling the water.

u/buddythebear · 1 pointr/FoodPorn

Ok just to be really snobby... Old Fashioneds should always be made with one large ice cube. I use something like this but the spherical ice cubes are fun too. If you want to get even fancier, you should use purified water that's been boiled prior to freezing. That way the ice won't be cloudy. Just a friendly tip, cheers and have a merry Christmas.

u/goldragon · 1 pointr/Wetshaving

Yeah, I have some mineral water that I sometimes try watering down my bourbon and I also have some of these ice ball molds to water down and cool the alcohol burn but I have found I prefer to have the full blast of taste and burn from a small amount of bourbon rather than dilute a larger amount. Honestly, half the enjoyment is in just holding the glass and sniffing the contents before even taking the first sip.

I really like this one:

OXO Good Grips No-Spill Ice Cube Tray with Silicone Lid - $12.95 USD

However, I don't consider it BIL because silicone seems to absorb fridge smells over time. I haven't noticed it affecting the flavor of the ice yet though so maybe it is not a problem. I do really like having that silicone lid as it prevents a lot of off flavors I taste in most refrigerator ice (from either open trays or ice dispensers).

If you don't notice off flavors, some of the open top ice trays made out of metal are most likely BIL but I have no experience with them.

It's $100 because it's 100% made in America. It could be a bag of dog crap and it would sell if it was 100% made in America.

Americans are always willing to pay over the top for mediocre things, if it's made in America. Kind of like how lots of people are loyal Mac fans and insist Macs are the best yet they do not use them for work or school.

'murica logic

Edit: Look at this. Makes four at once, doesn't require you to melt a huge chunk of ice (have fun freezing that huge chunk in the first place) and is only $10.
