How Does an Ice Ball Machine Work?


An ice ball machine is a great addition for your restaurant and bar because it improves the experience of your customers and can even promote brand awareness if you invest in a custom logo ice mold. However, many ice ball makers can be difficult to use or complicated to figure out. Unlike most ice ball machines, Spirits On Ice is easy to use and takes just 60-seconds to work. In today’s blog post, we’ll look at how these ice ball machines work.

Preparing the Ice Ball Machine

The first step in creating the perfect ice ball with your ice ball machine is to prepare the machine itself. Always make sure your Spirit Ice Vice is located on a level surface. Caution should be taken when moving these machines because they are very heavy. For the safety of your staff, the experience of your customers, and great quality ice balls, place your machine on a secure, level surface.

Preparing the Ice Block

Once you have your machine in the right spot, it is time to remove the top and insert your ice block. Make sure to use the ice block mold that is included with your ice ball machine to ensure that it is the right size and shape. This is when you would apply your brand insert if you have a custom logo ice mold, placing the pin of the insert in the center of the base.

Once you have molded your ice block and set it on the center of the machine, it is time to begin molding it into a clear ice ball.

Letting the Spirit Ice Vice Work

One of the unique things about the Spirit Ice Vice is the way it presses the ice balls. Once you have the ice block centered, you can place the top of the machine over the block and let it begin to work. In 60-seconds flat, this ice ball machine will create a beautiful ice ball. Not only that, but your customers will love to watch the process unfold, as the top travels downward, putting on a show in the process. The end result is a perfect ice ball for your customers.
