Shard: For Bar-Quality Ice in Your Home Bar or Kitchen

by: Joseph On  Thursday, November 19, 2015


Ice is just frozen water, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not a tricky thing to get exactly right. For proof, just try to mimic the perfectly clear large block (or other structure) of ice from a bar or formal event in your home. Odds are, the ice will be cloudy, and the whole effect will be ruined – unless you have Shard.

Shard is an ice maker that includes everything you need to get that elusive clear block of ice in your home bar or kitchen. It’s a special container that uses “directional freezing” to limit impurities and other things that cause that gross cloudy look (and that distinctive freezer after taste). The kit includes three different ice forms, a pick & crusher, and an ice prong with six points.

Shard is currently in its crowdfunding phase on Kickstarter here, where you can pre-order yours at $90 and going up from there.
