Meet the Forge Clear Ice System, which as its name suggests, churns out beautiful, perfectly spherical balls of ice sans impurities or trapped air bubbles.
Whisky on the rocks becomes that little bit fancier when you swap out your typical ice cubes for an ice ball, but you know what will make it even fancier?
A crystal clear ice ball, sans impurities and air bubbles.
That is now more achievable than you think with a new luxury ice maker from FirstBuild.
Dubbed the Forge Clear Ice System, the machine, as its name suggests, churns out beautiful, perfectly spherical balls of ice. What’s more fascinating is how it doesn’t need a freezer, as it is fully capable of freezing crystal clear ice balls in a matter of hours.
It works on two components – one freezes and creates “gem-shaped clear ice” while the other holds them at temperature after which a heated press shapes the gems into large spheres. The shaping takes approximately all of a minute, and voila, you have the perfect sphere of ice that promises no impurities or trapped air bubbles to swirl all fancy the next time you break out that whisky you’ve been saving for a special occasion.
FirstBuild Executive Director Larry Portaro said, “Our engineers have worked alongside whisky experts and enthusiasts to create both an innovative way to make clear ice at home and an experience that creates a wow every time.”
FirstBuild is proud to be a one of the many co-creation community backed by GE Appliances. The Forge Clear Ice System is currently on presale in an online crowdfunding campaign for US$1,499 (approximately MYR6,165) on the official FirstBuild website here.
