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.
To be honest I haven’t used the Lewis bag itself. But this mallet is amazing! I hand used it to break up my bag ice and does so quickly and effectively. Much faster than an ice pick! And as other reviewers have said, great for getting your frustrations out. Would definitely purchase this & highly recommend
love this easy to use bag and mallet....
I had no idea such a thing as a Lewis Bag existed until I read about it on David Lebovitz's blog. He lists some basic equipment that will improve your cocktails. This bag and mallet really is the secret to achieving an icy drink that will hold a chill. And it doesn't hurt my feelings that the mallet is beautiful and nice to hold.
This ice crushing setup works great! I have a problem with my automatic ice maker where it very slowly leaks water into the holding bin (long story, but it's been repaired twice already). The result is that the ice clumps together into large chunks. This bag and mallet actually makes the ice *better* than the maker itself because I can hammer it into the size I prefer vs the large cubes. Great product and it's a lot cheaper than buying a standalone crusher!
Great product! Excellent quality
I love it. It's finely crafted.
La bolsa para el hielo est� muy peque�a. Casi solamente es para moler hielo para una copa. La calidad excelente. De hecho en la foto de la publicidad se ve mas grande.

Very good item if you are in the cocktail making mood

Awesome. My he man hubby loves it. Won’t make ice in trays anymore. My Tupperware he uses I always jump when he hits the frozen block.
Simple and effective. Very well balanced hammer, beautiful wood, nice to the touch.
Pretty easy to use.
My favorite gift ever
Lewis ice bag and mallet work perfectly, great size, and makes good ice for cocktails.
BIL lovesss crushes ice. This was his fav gift for Xmas, uses it every day
Very durable, handheld (small), works great for an Ice machine
Nice product. Well made works as intended.
Smashing ice is fun. This bag is holding up.
Great way to make crushed ice for those classic tiki drinks.
holding up like expected. canvas bag, wooden hammer.
I only wish the bag was bigger.

Very good! Cracked ice great for drinks!
This is a good bag and the hammer is great. I bought a bigger bag through another and will use this in a traveling cocktail kit I am putting together.
Definitivamente, el tamaño del hielo le da una personalidad distinta a los cocteles, por lo que tener hielo triturado en el bar, es un plus. Esta bolsa tiene el tamaño para proporcionar hielo triturado para dos cocteles, el proceso de triturado es fácil, el martillo de madera que le acompaña, es lo suficientemente solido para machacar piezas grandes de hielo pero a la vez es liviano y manejable. Los materiales de construcción lucen robustos y durables.
Works great. Much easier than then using the hand crank ice crusher that I also have, but don't want to use too often since this is much better
Love this little ice bag and mallet. I love making iced coffee and this is the perfect way to crush the right amount of ice for my drink. The bag and the mallet are very well made ... I've had it for 3 weeks now and have been using it twice and sometimes three times in the same day since it arrived and have not experienced what some are saying about the bag not holding up. For me it has worked perfectly and I would definitely recommend to anyone.
This has upped my martini game!
We buy bagged ice because there's no water line to the fridge, and making ice in trays takes a long time. The freezer's auto defrost feature causes the whole bag to melt slightly & then freeze into one big block, necessitating some form of manual trauma to separate again. We'd been using our drink glasses (probably not safe), and an actual hammer (which tore the bag up), before finally getting the right tool for the job. And this is a GREAT tool. Busts up the ice without tearing holes in the bag. Very sturdy, well made. Nice broad head to smash a lot of ice at once. Great purchase, should've bought this a long time ago!
Works great, wish it didn't make so many holes after use though.
It’s exactly as you would expect, the bag dries quickly after use.
Strong solid. Great for crushed ice!

Ideal para cuanto tienes visitas y el hielo es una roca, este producto tiene buena calidad, excelente estética y un muy buen precio. Amo este producto
Worked great to crush dry ice to powder to refill my SodaStream containers.
Love this! It's strong and can get through any ice. Worth every penny
I bought this bag and hammer to crush ice cubes for summer cocktails. It does the job to perfection. Just a couple of smacks with the handy included hammer, and your cocktail shaker is in business. I don't use it daily or heavily, but the canvas bag seems sturdy enough to me. I allow it to dry on a handy rack I bought on Amazon. The hammer is light enough for this old lady to heft, and on a really annoying day. I imagine smashing ice to smithereens might be an antidote to murderous impulses.
After messing about thru various methods of cracking or crushing ice, I finally bought one of these and have used it multiple times for various purposes including cocktails, filling water bottles, and making crushed ice for an injury (sigh). The bag is sturdy and 3 large cubes help are handled easily, Carefully breaking up a single large cube is also easily handled.
The best way I've found to create crushed ice for specialty drinks. Fun to use! It's held up well, although I don't use it often.

I like it’s ease of use. No hassle. Simple, easy , best for crushing ice for anything. You decide if you want crushed, chips or slightly broken ice cubes.
It is great but I�m spoiled because I want the crushed ice to happen as fast as Michael makes it for Pat on Southern Charm! ;)
Very high quality- does its job with the larger ice blocks we break down. I prefer this one over the 1 and 4 pronged ice picks.
Bought this for my hubby, who likes crushed ice in his evening cocktail. They don't make manual crushers like "back in the day". As a kid, we had one that would've withstood a nuclear attack...solid cast aluminum. But no more...now they are cheap metal and plastic. So, I thought, what the heck, try this one. Let me tell you...it's great! Some folks complained that the seams split...well...you can't stuff it full of cubes...they must be able to move while being crushed! Hubby enjoys hammering away, too. It's a tension re-leaser, too!
Great for the job , breaks ice

Overall a fine cocktail tool; nice and sturdy, takes but a few swings to create perfect cracked or crushed ice. Only complaint is the mallet's continual habit of flying into my open hand. While I do enjoy the fact that it has granted me the power of flight, its tendency to throw off lightning bolts can be off-putting for first time house guests.
My husband laughed when he opened the anniversary gift - 5 years anniversary is wood and what better than a mallet for all the times he's wanted to bop me over the head? ;) Perfect for tiki drinks and juleps! Mallet is super durable and the ice bag is a dream - dries quickly and keeps the ice "dry" to limit dilution when putting into glasses as it absorbs the excess water.
Works great in the restaurant.
Crushed ice in seconds- great product as always from Viski
It works as expected. I just wish the bag was bigger! You can only make one drink at a time with such a small bag.
un peu cher mais pratique et donne de la glace s�che bien pill�e
This thing is pretty good albeit a bit small. Need to fill more than once to get enough crushed ice to fill a julep or double rocks glass. Still, pretty cool and easy to use for quick crushed ice.
Bought this as a gift for my best friend and she loves it. She hasn’t had any problems or complaints.
Just use a towel over the bag when you smash it. You just need 2 wacks to crush the ice. You crush about a cup. Enough for a cocktail.
Love this mallet and bag. We sold our fridge that had an ice cube dispenser/crusher in the door and I was lost. I love this!
I am addicted to crushed ice and have tried many ice crushers.. so I went back to the basics... this is quicker, finer and you get your aggressions out!! But be careful of your fingers!

Love this set because is makes Martini making a breeze. A must have for serious at home drink makers who want their cocktails to be their very best.
Helps produce ice that is not wet. Amazing!
Great ice tool! I have an ice machine and the ice cubes tend to come out attached. So I got this because its wood and to break up the ice in the bin. It works great!
Gaye Nell Skrivanek
My husband uses it and says it works great.
Bought this little bag for crushed ice to add to health minded blended drinks - I like it! Perfect for my purpose <3
This is a great gift for a bourbon lover! The mallet & bag are very well made and help create awesome finely crushed ice, perfect for a good drink. We've used the ice for regular drinks too and we love the ice texture and how it makes our drinks taste. Highly recommend!
This thing works better and faster than my electric ice crusher and is way more fun to use. The bag isn’t large but you get a decent amount of crushed ice (maybe 1 1/2 cups) from one use.

This mallet feels really nostalgic. It makes you feel like you're doing something wrong. I would never use this mallet in front of the customer in a bar because it makes a lot of noise and disturbs the guests from their conversations. I would only use this only for preparations and save crushed ice for parties. It takes time to make crush ice in any situation whether you use a mallet like this or a hand cranking ice crusher. But I feel like this mallet takes a lot of time and effort to make crushed ice. It's hard to adjust the ice to make the ice from a shaved ice piragua texture to flake like ice. I would use this probably at your own kitchen far away from society.
works very well. keeps ice from flying around your room when you want to crush it!
Works well for breaking up ice cubes and no electricity needed!
Works very well. Surprisingly quiet, at least on a stone counter top. Very tough.
Awesome ice bag! Creates crushed ice in seconds...shipped just as fast!
Excellent products. They work exactly as described. I wish the bag was just a tad bigger but otherwise this is an extremely nice addition to the bar accessories.
Works like a charm!
So easy to use. The Grandkids love it too!
Arrived just in time for Derby Day (the official start of the mint julep season). This helped make the best juleps I have ever had.
Solid quality on both the hammer and bag, until my dog started gnawing on it. Would purchase again, and probably will have to now :)
perfect for what I needed
I was looking for an electric or mechanical ice crusher when I saw this combination. Since I like the simplest solution, I ordered it. Works like a charm; I put the bag under the ice cube dispenser, get a few cubes in the bag; then a few raps with the mallet and you have perfectly crushed ice. Both the bag and especially the mallet are very well made.
Good buy for the price
