Isn't the problem that it will absorb the odors of whatever else is in your freezer, the same as ice?

Check the link for the Ice vs Whiskey stone vs. Tilt Sphere comparison... the Stainless steel sphere did very well at chilling the drink, and had much less smell than the whiskey stones (which did very poorly).

Wish I'd seen that before I shelled out for some stones from a previous WOOT!!

Which is why you store the stones in a Ziploc freezer bag in the freezer!

I got six (three two packs) on a previous woot and I like them. They definitely cool more than stones.
They're actually really good at keeping stuff other than drinks cold, like dips that should stay cold.

Have something similar and the problem with this is convection.
The stones/steels are on the bottom, where they make the liquid cool. The cool liquid is denser and stays near the bottom... thus the top of your drink is ever-warm.

Molecules... how do they work?!

You're so vain... you probably think this post is about you.. don't you? Don't you? You're so vain!

Or clean the freezer if it's really that nasty.

Seriously, this is a great item. We use them to continue chilling our friends drinks. They look good in any type of glass. We have a dozen, so no need for more. This is a good deal, we paid $25 per when buying the dozen at a restaurant supplier.

When I looked up the study, the steel took the longest to cool the drink down, but did get close to the temp of Ice.

Ice cooled the fastest, but does water down drinks. It also stayed the coolest.

The stones cooled the drink down quickly, but it eventually warmed up. And as noted, they stay at the bottom, so you do still need to swirl.

If I want my whiskey cold, I keep the bottle in the freezer. If I want it the right temperature, I take room-temp whiskey and add 3 cold stones. They don't make it cold; they make it cool. The stones (and I presume these spheres) look good while dropping the temperature just enough. If you are looking for a way to get a drink cold without diluting it, there are plenty of other, cheaper, options. Bed,Bath and Beyond has plenty in their drinks section.

I backed a kickstarter a few months ago:

My question is, how different are the two (and others) besides the shape? Are the liquids inside different?

Isn't that why straws go to the bottom of the glass?

If the ice is floating on the top?

No, straws go to the bottom of the glass so you can drink all the liquid. If they only went to the top you wouldn't get much.

I can just imagine the number of accidents that await those who buy the spherical "spirit steel". There is absolutely NOTHING stopping that metallic ball from smashing into your nose when you drink that last bit of beer.

Horrible idea.
