Can I freeze other liquids?
Absolutely! Try dairy, nut beverages, iced teas, coffee, sodas, juices, gelatins, and more. Just remember that the higher the water content, the stronger the ice! Sugars in the liquids tend to make weaker ice which may cause the fin to break during de-molding.
Can I put fruits and other foods in the ice?
Absolutely! The more creative, the more fun. Just remember that the ice is balanced and placing foods such as fruits in the ice may cause the ice to tilt off balance. Citrus slices tend to help keep the ice floating for longer periods of time!
Is it ok to freeze fruit smoothies in the mold?
Yes! As long as your smoothie contains a good amount of liquid in it, it should withstand the demolding without breaking. Remember that sugars make the ice more fragile.
Why doesn't my fin float above the surface?
The more ingredients you put in the ice, the heavier the ice will be causing it to sink and float lower. When filling the ice cavity, keep all of the ingredients and liquid levels below the "Fill Line" and experiment with different ingredients and fill lines.
Can I use the mold to make chocolates or soaps?
Chocolates and soaps can be made in our silicone molds. Much care must be taken when removing the items as the silicone mold is primarily designed for ice which can withstand the stress of demolding without breakage. The fins are their strongest when made with water and as a result, all other substances containing sugars and fats are much more prone to breakage during release. Freezing can help with demolding.
