Buying and evaluation criteria for ice cream moulds

In the following, we have listed some buying criteria that you should keep in mind before buying an ice cream mould. We have briefly explained these criteria for you.

Size

Size is about making sure you know what portion size is ideal for you. The question you should ask yourself is whether the portion is intended for small children or for adults. Depending on this, you should buy a mini-form for babies. You should also consider how much space there is in the freezer to determine the size.

Material

Since there are many different materials, it is worth considering what the ice mould is made of. Steel ice-cream moulds and silicone ice-cream moulds are very popular because of their good quality. They do not stain easily and also do not emit harmful substances.

It is also important to make sure that the ice moulds are BPA free. In the best case, they are made of one hundred percent high-quality silicone. These materials are also very easy to clean. Steel also repels bacteria.

Sustainability

Sustainability plays a role for many people. It is therefore important that the production, the material and the reusability are sustainable. Most ice moulds have reusable styles and do not produce waste every time.

Of course, it's no use if the moulds break right after the first use, which is why an ecological ice mould should be robust. A very robust material is stainless steel. That's why stainless steel ice cream moulds are a good choice.
