Easy to yse
This works great. Better than crushed ice because the chips are bigger. I use it every day. Dries out quickly too. I wasn't sure how it would work when I ordered it but I was pleasantly surprised.
If your refrigerator does not make crushed ice (ours does not unfortunately) then this Lewis bag is helpful for cocktail making or any other instance where you would need or want crushed ice. The mallet is quite substantial and it is easy to go overboard and make powdered ice rather than crushed, so take it easy and learn how much pounding is needed for perfectly sized ice. Also, do not fill the bag too full, because then some will be crushed, some will stay large, and some will be snow. Finally, make sure you use all of the ice or empty it out, because the bag is not waterproof and will leak onto wherever it stands. All in all it serves its purpose well and I'd recommend this as a good choice for a Lewis bag and mallet.
I use this to crush ice for Tiki drinks every weekend. The bag is very sturdy and the inside does not fray like I've seen on other bags. The mallet is big and does the job. Cheers!
This lewis bag and mallet makes amazing crushed ice in seconds. Perfect for Margaritas and other drinks that require crushed ice instead of cubes.
