Like to make your own popsicles, but can’t stand waiting for the things to freeze? Enjoy instant gratification with the Zoku Quick Pop Maker, a “space-age” (whatever that means) ice pop maker that gets you frozen, lickable treats in just seven minutes.
I know. Seven freaking minutes to tongue-numbing bliss is pretty awesome. Even better, the Zoku looks just as easy on the eyes as the treats it creates.
To use it, simply slip the Quick Pop Maker into a freezer, letting it chill. Once you’ve made your flavors (go conventional or go crazy – you’ll be stuck eating it anyway), pull the compact base out, pour on the concoctions, drive the popsicle sticks in and wait the aforementioned 420 seconds. That’s it. You’ll be licking your frozen goodies (that didn’t sound right) in no time.
The box, which measures 8 x 4.25 x 4.5 inches, can make three 2-ounce popsicles at a time, each one measuring a satisfying 2.25 x 3.5 inches. Out of the box, it comes with six reusable sets of pop sticks and drip guards, ready to feed your ice lolly habit. They didn’t detail the proprietary pop-freezing tech, but the molds are non-stick, cast aluminum, so your finished icicles should pull out easily once they’re done.
Unless you know what you’re doing, don’t expect to be able to produce the same professional-looking popsicles on the photo though. Damned if I know how you’re supposed to make it look that cool. Regardless, you can probably turn out similar eye candies if you use your Zoku Quick Pop Maker often enough. It’s available now for $50.
