Story

We love crystal clear ice, but it's been a hassle to make at home. We wanted something faster, easier, compact, lid-free, expandable, and made primarily in the USA. Something clearly better.

Ordinary freezer ice is cloudy. Our design makes beautiful crystal clear ice from regular tap water, and it's easy. If you know how to make ice, you already know how to use ICE.MADE.CLEAR. It transforms all of your drinks, and we think you will love it.

Why ICE.MADE.CLEAR. ?

 
–Drinks Taste Better

Clear ice has less dissolved yucky freezer air. So, clear ice is clean-tasting, allowing the subtleties of high quality spirits to emerge.


–Drinks Are Cool, Not Watery

Clear ice melts slower. The absence of air pockets on the outside creates a smooth exterior with less surface area to encourage melting. Drinks stay cool longer and don't get watery.


–Drinks Look Stunning

You - and your friends - will be astonished by the glass-like clarity. Ice from ICE.MADE.CLEAR. is nearly invisible in drinks.

What is Included?

 The ICE.MADE.CLEAR set comes complete with the freezing base and two interchangeable trays for making 2” enormous cubes and 1.25” jumbo cubes (for tall glasses).

The History

I was at a bar and It was slow, so I watched the bartender work. His liquors, bitters, fruits and herbs were good. His mixology was top-notch. But his drinks? They looked and tasted amazing. It was the ice, and shortly thereafter, I had a moment of ‘Clarity.’

The next week I sat down with an ice formation physicist – true story. What I learned started an obsession.

Our Key Innovation

Our patent-pending pressure equalization system allows I.M.C.™ to make big ice in a small device. It's fast freezing and easy. It is deceptively simple, and that's the point.

We tried common beliefs, DIY solutions, and exotic electronic concepts. We prototyped for three years on the way to an elegant solution.

Hear From a Bartender

"Being a Domestic Mixologist, I’ve tried ways to improve my drinks, from making my own bitters to infusing simple syrups...But you make a beautiful drink and put it in a glass and then have to put a cloudy ice cube in there...by adding an ultra clear cube, it shows that you care about your cocktail and give it the feel of wow." - Phillip P., Supporter

The Science - For Nerds Only

14.jpg

First we looked at how the big commercial units work, with electronics and ultrasonics – not practical at home. Then we looked to nature's directional freezing process – frozen lakes have clear surface ice. This process is elegant but hard to replicate in a device for the home that isn't bulky and slow.

We applied a Design Thinking methodology to make directional freezing more human-friendly. We prototyped for years on the way to a solution.

Our lid-free, two-piece, compact unit is made possible by a controlled temperature gradient and by our big innovation – a patent-pending pressure equalization system designed to deal with the 8% expansion water undergoes as it becomes ice. It is a deceptively simple idea that just works.

Once we had our concept working with hand-built prototypes, we moved into 3D printing and molding silicone. We spent about six months creating and refining functional prototypes until we had the confidence to offer a polished product.

Elegant and Practical

Sleek curves and angles unite function with presentation

More Shapes!

Our plan is to offer mold updates to fit your kit and keep you on the cutting edge of ice!
