I chose the Zoku Quick Pop Popsicle Maker. I have been cutting back on the junk foods that I bring into the house and the kids are always complaining. So I thought that this popsicle maker would be a great idea.
Warning, you do need to freeze the unit 24 hours before using it! We didn’t realize that the first night when we wanted to use it, so we had to wait one more day.
Once the machine was ready to go, it was so easy to use. We used cranberry juice to make our pops. There are three slots so you can make three at a time, which is fine considering how long it takes…about 10 minutes! It does come with 6 sicks with specially designed grooves on it to grip the pop. You can actually watch the popsicle freeze over. The slots are made of non-stick cast aluminum so removing the pops are easy to do. It also comes with an orange topper (the super tool) that screws into the popsicle stick and helps to lift the frozen popsicles from the mold. You do not want to just pull on the popsicle stick.
You do want to watch little ones around the unit as if you touch the base your fingers could get stuck to it. Also, you can not place it in the dishwasher, you do need to hand wash it. The unit does need to be completely dry before refreezing.
This is going to come in handy this summer, I like the idea of using fresh fruit and mixing up the popsicle flavors.
