If you have ever tried to make spheres by hand, you will appreciate the luxury of having a set of perfectly shaped sphere molds. This small-sphere mold is great for reverse spherification,agar and gelatin set recipes, hydrocolloid work, general confectionery and so much moreIn fact, chefs have already used these molds to create mango pearls, liquid fennel spheres,strawberry rosewater sorbet, caramel/praline globes and mini financiers. What will you makeThe pouring holes in this mold are not circular. This will help to allow air escape from the moldas you fill it with a round tipped sauce gun or piping bag.We have also designed registration keys along all four sides of the mold as well as in the interior of the mold. All of this registration ensures near seamless castings. Additionally, the molds are made using Flex & Bake silicone, which is more pliable and heat resistant than the blue sphere molds. Mold Size: 9.6 x 8.5 (24.4cm x 21.6cm)Made with Flex & Bake platinum silicone, the mold is food-contact safe and can be used for baking up to 450 F / 232 C. It also works well with blast freezers and liquid nitrogen.Helpful Hint: When fitting the mold together (also called seating the mold),put the mold section with the holes in it on top.Use the triangular registration keys along the sides of the mold to ensure proper registration.Next, run a rolling pin back and forth across the top of the moldin order to push the mold sections together. Always fit the mold together with the holes facing up.If the holes are facing down, air will not be able to escape when you compress the two sections together.
